I can specifically vouch for #57. Along with my car hobby I also have a collection of guitars/basses. I've come to the realization I can buy a new (used) guitar, but only if I buy them in pieces. That way I don't get grief and they don't leak any fluids..
(good thing I tend to prefer old fenders/music man/charvel/lakland products - the bolt on necks make it easier and slabs of wood with no electronics look like toys to her)
I'm still get the last time I purchased a new neck-thru bass thrown in my face (10 years ago!) everytime she wants to upgrade her sewing machine(s)......
