‘I still think they are overpriced but that is not a belief or conclusion...’

:shock:

Really??

I don’t think this discussion is likely to take use anywhere useful, but if you ever feel like answering my question how you came to make the statement they are overpriced (even if you assert that statement was not a belief or conclusion, or possibly not even an opinion!) please do let us all know.

Cheers
Peter

Clearly not! I have already answered your question.

This discussion is getting less rational each post. Let’s just quit here.

Before we do Peter, perhaps I might help with an analogy.
I believe that fairies shelter under mushrooms and it is my opinion that mycologists who pick mushrooms damage the welfare and security of fairies. This is not a conclusion based upon study of fairy exposure but an opinion based upon my beliefs. Having considered the arguments of those who question my beliefs I have concluded that their opinions are unimportant to me. I hope that clarifies things for you. :wink:

Pepe Jr. studied with Dake for a time before going out on his own, though I don't think Dake was the only one he worked with.

About Dake Guitars,

my friend owns a cedar top with b. rosewood. The guitar has wonderful-sweet separation of notes and loud for any concert hall.
