Lula is

I was playing down Lula's neck the other night when I came to realize something: Lula is cheap. There's a fret right under the nut, the strings have patches of black, and the last five frets are impossible to get to because of body style. I realize the strings have to be a huge part of the problem, but some of the dead spots I just have to blame on poor construction.

I've always heard to play on a cheaper instrument because money can't buy you talent, so don't waste your money. I got Igor as a better instrument because I knew I could get $100 if I gave up, but I wonder if he's spoiled me sometimes.
