    American Original is gone... and nothing was announced to replace it

    I agree with you, if 1/3 of the Blackguards in Nacho's book were 9.5" radius, how can that be categorized as strictly "modern", that doesn't make any sense.

    What's the appeal of Telecasters?

    Yes Tele’s stay in tune and they’re very versatile etc. etc..But there’s one thing that I don’t believe gets mentioned often, I find they are great guitars for song writing. something about the Tele I just here riffs and melodies when I play it.

    Nobels Odr-1 just for a loud amp?

    I really like my Nobels ODR-1, use it mostly as boost with just a little drive, I find it fattens things up a bit.

    Hamilton v Verstappen

    Like the 3 year legal battle he waged against Hamilton Watches for using the Hamilton brand name, which he lost. They've been using it since 1892. Is that an example of being a gentlemen off the track?

    How do you feel new US made telecasters compare to pre 2000 ones?

    Where exactly do you find these declining sales numbers? I have never been able to find exact Fender guitar sales numbers. I’ve recently heard the Fender is having record high sales numbers, (due to the pandemic possibly), but I’ve never been able to find the actual numbers of guitars sold.

    DRRI vs the newer 12” PRRI?

    I agree, an incredible amount of guitarist, producers, and engineers, need to have their hearing checked. (be grateful that you don’t). I prefer the g12m-65 creamback, however I’m not sure if it’s overrated or not, having been used on not nearly as many albums as the clearly overrated V30 (that...

    Anyone agree that the AV and AO fretboards are OVER-rolled?

    Skinny? You must be kidding, my ‘03 is far from skinny, with a slightly rolled edge. I’m sure you’ve read “ The Blackguard” and have actually measured the neck, the word I would choose would be “accurate” for a ‘52, far from skinny. I also own an American Original and I agree that the neck is...
