Nah, I have to agree with Jimmy here.  I bought a G Lee Oskar in Dublin in 2006 and have played it to death, but it's already showing signs of needing some fine-tuning. It might only have another two or three years left in it I fear.   You must be walloping your harps if they only last four months.  I get a year out of my SP20s these days, and I'm talking about the ones that get hammered every Friday night and for practising in between. :-)
