    NGD (nearly) day

    Thanks! It just different flavour of benders. The b-bender is great for traditional pedal steel type tones but I went for a g-bender cos I live out of the triads on the d-g-b strings and it lets me make some cool chord movements using all three strings. I can bend the d and b with my fingers...

    That’s for turning up the twang levels ;-)

    It’s taken nearly a year but my transatlantic Custom-built g-bender Tele is now on its way! She’s a beauty - can’t wait to get twanging on her. Meet the Nellycaster!

    Is TDPRI history? (merged)

    It depends if you use it on a phone or not. I only ever (try to) access it on a phone and at least half the time no content shows at all. I’ve more or less stopped using it as a result, and as most people usually use their phone to access it then I do worry how long it can last if it doesn’t...

    Anybody enjoy a good Scotch ?

    I’m off to Islay next week for a whisky trip - taking in Laphroig, Lagavulin and Ardbeg distilleries (as well as Oban as a diversion on the way) and staying at one of Scotland’s best whisky bars, where I’ll no doubt try many more. Safe to say I like my whisky!

    How can the moderator stop the Chinese spam?

    You can only put them on ignore one poster at a time. That would be useful advice if there wasn’t dozens and dozens of them - otherwise you spend more time putting Chinese hackers on ignore the you do reading posts. It’s been better recently, but at times it’s made the site unusable so maybe...

    has the b bender seen its day?

    It’s never really been mainstream - not sure any fewer or more people are using them now than in the past. Saw John Osborne using one to great effect recently, so there’s a few around. I’m just waiting on delivery of my g-bender Tele so I’m a fan.

    Has anyone here ever bought a "Chibson"?

    Guy in my band has a Chickenbacker (Chinese Rickenbacker!) and to be fair after a proper set up it’s pretty decent. When you consider how much an actual Ricky costs, and the fact that they are appallingly made guitars with massive design flaws, you’d have to be pretty crazy to buy the real...

    Unfortunately it’s not just one, it’s lots of different posters so you’d be spending more time ignoring posters than actually reading the forum. Seems to be a bit better recently, but at times it’s made the whole forum unusable.

    Passive acoustic pickups.. .who's using what?

    From the many I’ve tried K&K is the one I found that keeps the natural sound of your guitar the best - but it can struggle at high volumes so probably best choice for solo/duo acoustic rather than in a band with drummer.

    Once and for a hot dog a sandwich?

    A sandwich requires the food to be consumed between two slices of bread. A hot dog is a frankfurter embedded into a single bread roll: ipso facto and hot dog is not a sandwich
