    COSPLAY - TEACH ME

    I keep seeing costume copied to an expert level on the internet Can some psychiatrist who studied it tell us what the people get from it? I understand the giggle of a little fancy dress on Hallowe'en, but the stuff I see is a massive investment of time and money. Is it for internet points? Do...

    HELP ME, BROTHERS

    I bought an unbranded 'non working' guitar to pass the time. The ad said it had no electrics in it, so obviously I was very puzzled to receive a working guitar full of connected pickups and switches It isn't especially exciting, so I am thinking of moving it on, but before I did I wondered if...

    Dream interpretation

    Last night I dreamt I was on the High St of the town I grew up in. I had a fiesta red strat and my Martin M36 with me, and I set them down for a minute to help someone I realised they had been stolen. I panicked, wondering what I could do Psychiatrist, let me know if this means something. I do...

    Wolf and White

    I don't know if everyone has already seen it, but I was so amazed to see Bukka White playing alongside Howlin' Wolf, I felt I must share it If anyone can direct me to a fuller recording... please please me, oh yeah

    NGD: Martin M36 re-imagined

    Hello everybody. I haven't actually recorded any NGD on here in ages, because most of the things that pass through my hands don't merit mention, but as I sought counsel on here the other day about a Martin (and someone commanded me to get it), I reckon I at least owe a few decent definition...

    GUIDANCE SOUGHT - M36 RE-IMAGINED

    OK, so I am sure I have put this in the wrong bit, but essentially, I love that Martin bass sound I used to have a dreadnought, but it needed 13s to boom, and I realised my playing doesn't work on anything past 11s, so I sold it.... but then got back to itching again for a Martin. Downtuning...

    NGD - STAGG P90 TELE RIP OFF

    Hello everybody This little Piggy loves P90s This little Piggy loves telecasters This little Piggy was walking through town and saw a sonic blue telecaster in a pawn shop window at GBP60 with a P90 in the neck This little Piggy went "wee wee wee" - all the way into the shop, and found it to...

    NGD - Epi SG P90 Junior (USED) (IN AGRICULTURE)

    I forget why it was that I became obsessed with these things, but it was probably the fact it is kinda the Esquire for the Gibson species that has always made me interested(yes I know it has no switching - be quiet) I don't really think they should sell for much though, and so I hung around...

    Carnage from 12s

    I’ve been a proponent of 11s in the past and so when I got my 50s Baja I thought maybe the interesting thing to do was to put 12s on it BAD MOVE: too heavy for my little office hands, and probably the reason why I didn’t get on so well with the 50s as I do the 60s Baja Few weeks in I noticed...

    THIS PROBABLY ALREADY EXISTS BUT I DON’T KNOW

    As I see different people on here say they’re a weak player/write their own songs/whichever, part of me wonders if that’s accurate. A combination of false modesty/BS means I bet some great players feign inability, and other people are actually really weak and derivative What I thought was if...

    FOR THE CIRCUITY TYPES

    For me, electricity will always be an analogy to water flowing round pipes. And perhaps for this reason, I hate to see some huge complex circuit abandoned, as though we threw away our domestic plumbing entirely for the want of a washer. I love the fact someone is replacing a few capacitors in...

    NGD/moan/fingerprints fit for a catburglar

    To get it out of the way: my daughter wanted a ¾ size classical for her birthday in dark purple, which gives me a choice of approximately 1 guitar she can get (so I got it). The guitar itself is not the star of the show in the picture-or-it-didn’t-happen – that is the (part healed) tips of my...

    NGD – allsortsastuff

    I keep meaning to stop buying things, but then stuff floats in front of me and I strike like a rattlesnake – it isn’t my fault. I blame Mother Nature. I just wish she had also blessed me with the rigour to sell as freely as I buy The 2 fold reason I didn’t post these tales of acquisitorial...

    Esquire up the road – guidance please

    OK, so for people not used to Lancashire place names, when you have stopped sniggering about a location being called Ramsbottom, can people have a look at this Esquire...

    Avatars – Mini Size Mirage

    I don’t know how many people here ever look at this site on a phone, but even on a screen bigger than 5 inches the size of the avatars makes them look very different from desktop I forget the names of the people, but one avatar looks like the compound eye of a fly – then when I look on desktop...

    TDPRI LOGO - I am an idiot

    English people reading this might listen to Frank Skinner on Absolute Radio. Indeed, anyone anywhere might listen to it, as it is put on the internet and is available as a podcast. As a comedian of national standing in the UK he is worth listening to, with a level of wit reflecting the fact he...

    MAGNESIUM – And The Perils Of Sweating Too Much

    Oink Oink, brothers and sisters I’ve been having a pretty rotten time of it lately, healthwise. All sorts of odd symptoms that doctor and hospital never got to the bottom of, the weirdest being my lower eyelids trembling a lot After all sorts of idiocy, the guy I sit next to at work asked...

    NAD TIMES TWICE

    OK, I have too much of everything already, but sometimes things float by me in the river and at a price I cannot help myself but to reach out, given I am being asked to pay 20% of what something used to retail at…. Meet my Thunderbird and Vaporizer (fun names) Each of them have their own bits...

    NGDs - All Sorts Of Stuff

    Oink Oink everyone NGD is probably my favourite thing to read on here, because of pictures and little acquisition adventures, but it is hard for me to post them myself due to time pressures and the fact I can't start a thread on my phone. But I don't like to think I don't contribute So...

    1958 Great Cosmick Magnet Pulling Me In – Waste Of Everyone’s Time?

    OK, so after I skimmed the thread bewailing AVRI disappearing as a line the other day, some evil advertiser must have known what I had been thinking and showed me an ad for a 1958 in a shop I could walk to from home, discounted by hundreds. It’s the shop I got my Martin Dreadnought from, so it...

    SIMILE CHALLENGE: A TUBE AMP IS LIKE....

    I was trying to explain to someone the other day why my big tube amp is different to a big SS amp, to someone who never played tubes I was a bit stuck, but eventually explained that it is a bit like having a hose in your hand with water coming out of it, and the childish fun of being able to...

    NAD: SCRAP VOX AD100VT XL

    OK so the last thing I need is another amplifier, but I saw this advertised locally as not working for £50, despite the fact working ones seem to sell at over £200 (as far as I can find, they retailed at USD 840 when they were for sale) A 100 watt amp with built in effects and attenuation, AND...

    SAVE ME, TDPRI/NGD

    HELP First things first - OK so I customised an SG before (my avatar), but obeying Einstein's Theory of Guitar Relativity, I realised that I was an SG short of the ideal number of guitars (another buddy has since also collected me an LP that someone took the set neck off, then realised what...

    1000th post - how did that happen?

    I'm a person who believes that if you weigh a pig all the time it never gets fat, and tend not to look at targets and stats I then saw the other day that I was at almost 1000 posts (I only ever reply to things on my phone, so it came as a shock to find since Feb I wrote almost 1000 things on...

    Blake Wright Dirty River/hand compensated 3 brass saddles

    I have had my first Squier Telecaster forever now, since my office had a whip round to get it for my birthday in 2003. I can never sell it, but of course it wasn’t going to win any prizes An over-indulgence in TDPRI threads has led to me doing a number of things to it – but I wanted to do each...
