    As far as I'm concerned, he can leave the music at home, too. Well, at least his vocals.

    Some of the Chinese counterfeit Les Pauls are decent guitars.

    Give the Les Paul it's due respect. Nothing beats a Lester for that big beefy rock sound busting with juicy goodness. But when I needed something get down, snot flying, loosen that funky stuff from the bottom of the pan, raw, soothe the savage nerve on the nasty side of town, I don't care how many taps you put on the LP, it ain't gonna happen. Tele's the only tool gonna get it done. YMMV and all that crap.

    All overdrive pedals - no matter what pricepoint - sound the same in the hands of most guitarists, who, in turn, are stuck w*nking off trying to sound like SRV.

    ...or Clapton.

    ...or Bonamassa.

    Putting down the electrics for a while and spending some time perfecting a solid rhythm on acoustic guitar while singing at the same time gives a lot of bang for the buck when you want other people enjoying your music.

    Did I count wrongly? I wanted the Jazzmaster. Five?

    "Tubes" should be called valves.
    "Pickguards" should be called scratchplates.
    "Picks" should be called plectrums.

    (And don't get me started on "quarter notes"...!;))

    The thinline Tele, with wide range buckers, is jangly enough for Country, thank you!

    I won't argue with that, plectra sounds good to me!!

    (When I was just a kid learning guitar, if anyone forgot to bring a plectrum our teacher would put his hand in his pocket, bring out a bunch of plectra, and say "Take your pick". Now doesn't that joke work better if you normally call it a plectrum? I think so...)

    I disagree. If you normally call it a plectrum, the pun would be lost.
