    Before or after I sloppily spraypaint my brake calipers yellow without masking anything off or removing the pads?

    In the same jam session. And, don't forget the coffee can exhaust tip.

    Close, that car still has both headlights, so the owner hasn't swapped one out for an air intake yet. He's not getting max performance out of his base model automatic civic just yet.

    You fool, you've voided the 5 year transferable warranty with your amateurish modification.

    You're supposed to send it back to the factory to have the pros do it. Do you really think the company that doesn't make amps with adjustable biasing trusts the end user with a delicate modification like that?

    It's not a factory option. Believe me, I've asked.

    That's the only kind of companies I deal with, the ones that will let you give them thousands of dollars and then at the last second deny your extremely small request while making it clear that your request is also ridiculous and you have terrible taste.

    It's not only Mesa of course. Everytime I buy something in person at a guitar shop above like $1k I will jokingly ask them at the register some shit like, "Hey, that's a pretty big sale, I buy stuff here all the time, you should throw in like, some free picks or a pack of strings or something."

    The amount of places that will outright refuse to throw the customer an extremely superficial bone when they are in the process of giving them thousands of dollars is actually amazing. There is nothing I love more than getting to the counter to finish up buying something and cracking a joke about being like, "Hey, I just bought a shit ton of stuff here, I can keep the pick I got from your pick display to demo the thousands of dollars of things I just bought, right? You're going to throw that in for a good customer." and being told no.

    If a company doesn't have an incredibly stringent and stupidly restrictive policy about something really superficial, their products aren't worth buying.

    Although to Mesa's credit, they did eventually lighten up and list their prices online. Maybe some day they will get around to next level stuff like, "humoring extremely small requests".

    I still remember the era of the nonsensical, "Mesa doesn't list their prices".

    Kids these days don't even know the luxury they have, of being able to google "Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier" and having the price actually stated on the same page.
