sales don't equal quality.  celene dion has shown us that.

i won't even ask what constitutes a "real player", but i have been a
working musician for almost half my life.  i find i use my $100 mexican
squire strat a lot these days.  the neck is comfortable, the electronics
work and i'm not afraid of having it stolen or crushed by falling amps...

okay, so it's not a klein (and to be fair, i use my klein a lot more than
the strat).

i sold all of my peavy gear years ago because i was getting tired of having
my tech have to repair things onstage mid-show.

just my opinion.
