Thread: 9K For This?

Seems like the kind of thing someone at the factory should've noticed. Or the guy hanging it on the wall. Or one of the many people that have clearly handled it along the way, denting and scratching the heck out of it. This filled hole, however, is definitely not from poor handling.
    Here's a photo:

    Not sure if you're joking or not, Dilznik. Research the original Golden Eagle and you'll get the answer - it's exactly like the filled hole in the original.

    When in doubt, rtfm.

    (btw, it's supposed to be there )


    By Jon Silberman:

    To me, the moral is a reminder why I find exact tributes to be silly but to each his own.


    By JMintzer:

    And how close to the original are your Jerrycasters?


    By Flanagan:

    BURN!!!


    By Dilznik:

    Wasn't a joke. Had no idea. Need to learn to read.

    In my defense, no one at GC knew about it either. They all said "Man, PRS must be slipping."


    By Zilmo:

    I just have to keep my mouth shut in this thread.

    I didn't see this the first time around. Made my morning

    "The bell strikes one. We take no note of time
    But from its loss. To give it then a tongue,
    Is wise in man."

    Thanks for putting this one up, Mike!
    If I had a dollar for every rich guy with top of the line gear who can't play...... I'd be a rich guy with top of the line gear who can't play.

    I also like PRSh's story that when he saw the first prototype of the Golden Eagle run, the plug had been matched too well with the top. He made sure they rotated the plug a few degrees so you can actually see it
