    Check out my cheap MIJ guitar from the 60s/70s/80s -- it must be fantastic today because it's from Japan.

    Like my hero (really) EJ, I prefer bunny batteries.
    I swear there’s a difference, I just can’t hear it!

    my fav replies to me from the crumdungeons..lol

    "get off my lawn"..was jus a pic of me
    "you only need a tele & no amp"
    "how does your wife stand you"..i take care of her 24/7 ..she has had 2 severe brain injuries in last 3 years due to workplace accident & a dui driver creamed us..this one pissed me off..she reads all these posts i do..so she is included
    "long hair is unprofessional" so the rock guys you are trying to rip off should cut there hair ?
    "when is your headstock gonna break" ya prob never even played one
    "you cant get SRV tones on your plexi"..ha hah ha put a strat in one once, it just comes out it naturally

    and my all time favorite//"you need a small amp for bedroom playing"
    "Gibson needs to ..."...what a croc..they just fine

    i actually thank this site for making me despise tele's... was in the studio last year doing leads for a modern country band (puke) and they had a baja..and i did some work on it & they were ok..but i said do you mind ? and pulled out my 78 The Paul..guess what the band is playing now ..LP's into Marshall

    Well . . . how about a web forum devoted to all the things that curmudgeons like, but with Telecaster in the title?

    So, if you roll your eyes at that topic, and enjoy your other topics, then you're a curmudgeon?

    The :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes: threads...

    My bedroom amp is too big/small.

    Is there a cure for Tinnitus?

    The Beatles are overrated because....

    My Poly finish is too durable, and it doesn't breath enough.

    Would a belt sander and hammer be considered "honest" wear?

    Why do people keep resurrecting threads that haven't been posted in, in the last 2 minutes?
    The OP could be gone already.

    I don't think rolling my eyes at those would make me a curmudgeon.
