I had a Gibson SG Menace, great guitar, but those brass knuckles in the fret board just projected something I'm not, and I was uncomfortable with them being there. The guitar sounded and played great, I foolishly focused on those brass knuckles and traded it for a Tele. Sometimes I guess things just have to run their course, I didn't like the Tele, sold it, for half of what I could of gotten for the Menace. Next time I get a guitar that plays good, I don't care if it has a horse apple in the fretboard, I'm keepin' it.
I like me some Twangy Tele and some nonsense about honkytonk badonkadonk!
