    Of all the threads to comment on, and all the comments you could make, this was the one where you just had to chime in?

    This was not one bit funny at all. I actually like Darrel. But this was horrific.

    There's a fairly wide chasm between "Well, that was dumb." and "That upset me and hurt my feelings."

    Pretty sure the majority of opinions expressed in this thread fall into the former category.

    Ok, I had to go look to see what the fuss is about..
    As a southerner, that is a canada redneck ala Trailer Park Boys. Not one y'all in there so.. not offensive.

    And looking at his other vids it seemed he got scammed and paid good money for a chibson.
    I'm guessing instead of getting mad he decided to have some fun with it.
    Keeping that in mind, I found it a amusing way of getting a bit of satisfaction at a bad situation and he's entertaining folks in the process.

    I've done worse to a printer that I warned to quit giving me grief.. lol

    Everyone has lost their sense of humor these days it seems...

    This bothers me....why was it done? SHOCK VALUE, to gain more viewers/subscribers/followers, to grow his BRAND......

    Taking a perfectly good guitar that some impoverished student who can't afford one would LOVE....and destroying it just to make more money from YouTube and get more popular to me is deplorable.....

    I'll make another point - anyone who is unable to spot a fake Gibson and is also a youtuber claiming to have lots of guitar knowledge....that's someone I can't respect.....

    So many of these youtube guys to me are idiots.....with zero real knowledge.....

    Darrell? Is that you?

    Most of the comments in this thread are not from a viewpoint that finds his content favorable. What are you hoping to gain by defending this?

    Squarely in the former. Tastes in humor vary from person to person, and that's okay. I'm not here to "yuck" the "yum" of a 56 year old who uses the term "butt hurt", lol.

    Letterkenny is also leading the way for showing Canadian rednecks. I got a bit of that vibe as well.

    While I get this sentiment and agree to a certain point, we also don't know what he might have done with other guitars/efforts that is not shown. He has gotten a lot of cheap guitars that he might or might not have given to a student, or used in a good way. If he showed that, would it also be considered YT advertisement? Who knows.

    I think that we are all free to agree or dislike what he does or says, but he's also free to do with the guitar that he bought whatever he wants.

    deplorable, meaning I strongly condemn it. The guy is a TOOL with next to zero real knowledge......most members here know more. The things he says in his videos make me think 'this guy doesnt know anything about real vintage history, specs, proper setup, etc'

    Guys... calm down.
    I'm sure without too much effort you can find far more offensive, stupid or wasteful videos on youtube etc

    No need to get upset, it's just a video

    To me it's important because it's related to electric guitars, and he gives out bad advice, like changing tuners to fix a problem that's actually the nut.....but i'll chill

    This horse is well and truly dead, no need to beat it any further.

    I will say one observation. Whether you like the video or not, he has managed to get a 3 page thread on this forum talking about him. Wasn't that the point?

    Probably not unless he is a member here. I have seen exactly zero evidence of that. Still, his video has created a buzz. I suspect some people will check out his YouTube channel just to see what they can complain about next.
