I see that daily at work. We scrap out about 30-50% of the guitars we make, before they get to final.

Still sad to see them go. Some of the guitars scrapped at work look like there's nothing wrong with them.

some of them look like Epiphone's. What up with the lizard on the fretboard on the 3 left top corner?

If there's an upside to this, it's that at least many of the 'guitars' were ukuleles.....!

Wasn't Jim Morrison supposed to be the 'lizard king'? Did he play ukulele?

if that were at the Dean factory, i'd open a beer and celebrate.

I undertand the why of it, but it still seems wasteful, though. I'd be surprised if all of that was completely unsalvageable. If nothing else, they could have been donated to luthiers or lutherie classes for parts or training purposes.

Why, yes, I am a lawyer- thanks for asking!

Log off and play yer guitar!

Strap on, tune up, rock out!

Scrap rate is a commonly used indicator of a company's quality assurance program. As a general rule, the higher the final product scrap rate, the less robust the QA program.

That being said, with no point of reference numbers there's no way of knowing if this is good or bad.

Although admittedly it looks bad...

id have a field day digging through that to see if there were any parts or just anything that was still salvagable.

What usable parts could there possibly be? The pile is half broken ukuleles, and there's not a tuning machine in sight.

Rather than scrapping them, why not give them to charity? Take the name off the headstock then there's no risk to he company's reputation. It just seems terribly wasteful to me.

So are Lincoln "Navigators" and Cadillac "Escalades". But, mankind will be mankind, and US citizens will always do their best to waste the most.

Sucks tho. There was a campaign a while back where Billy Bragg and Mick Jones tried to encourage prisoners (convicts, whatever) to turn to music. It was called Jailhouse Rock and it worked. Give these sub-standard guitars to the prisoners. Or Oxfam - whatever tickles your fancy.
