I'm a Brit and for a long time it has been clear to me that our taste is a little conservative compared to our American cousins. In general we like plain lines, minimum ornamentation, and that's just in our women...when it comes to guitars the same rules apply ;-) I have almost a phobia against showy fretboard inlays, wheareas to some it is the very definition of a good guitar. What is wrong with us Brits? Are we all Basil Fawlty or Mr Bean types? Do we need to get a bit more exhibitionist?
