You just don't seem to grasp that you're unlikely to gain much traction in badmouthing Bob Carver on the websites that are devoted to the very person you seek to vilify.
I'm sure you are right, too many here have their head up his ass and can't see daylight. Don't get me wrong, I've met the man and like him. I like some of his products as well, but there's still NO excuse for that lack of craftsmanship. If I ever did a job like that for one of my customers I have no doubt I'd be taken to court.
WTF!! You're joking right???? It does say CARVER at the top of the page. Jesse you restore furniture... correct? I would expect 'your' customers to be pissed if you didn't restore a fine piece properly, but Bob was asked to build an amplifier not do extensive body work. He ain't Chip Foose, Boyd Coddington, Greg of Akron or Squeege Jergens, he's just a lil' old amp builder from Snohomish.I have noticed Don hasn't mentioned paying for body work and paint, just building an amp. Sounds to me like that was a complete success. I think this is just a case of sour grapes and somebody was trying to get something for nothing.
Hell don send them to me I'll paint 'em for you.
Its going to be used equipment when I sell it, so it may as well be used equipment when I buy it.
