From the description of "Tusq XL string trees" (it's a small guitar part, FWIW), a fairly horrifying bit of customer relations:
Note: If you find that one or both string trees are too long, you can easily be removed with fine grit sandpaper.
I've had some customers I didn't like, but I never threatened to LITERALLY SANDPAPER THEM OUT OF EXISTENCE just for being dissatisfied with a product...
Hah, it's funny that their site has "E to E" measurements for bridge saddles for a 4-string bass. For that other E string that doesn't exist.

I would never fall for "fake games" although I admit the very idea is completely alien to me. I have no idea what that exactly intels.

Seen on a cat-for-adoption flyer today: "4 years old, spayed and nurtured."

Well, I hope it's true, at least...

That may be deliberate? Any given animal gets either one or the other in the spay/neuter combo pack, right?
