    How does Pleking affect the resale value of a guitar?

    I'm curious how Pleking affects the resale value of a guitar. I'm sure many of you would NEVER buy a guitar without playing it, but the world is a changin', and I suspect more guitars are now purchased online than at brick and mortar stores. Regardless, I'll use an American Ultra...

    Please define "Made In America" for me.

    What does it entail/mean if a Fender is Made In America? Does every part of the guitar have to be manufactured in America? Does the guitar have to be assembled in America? Could some parts be made elsewhere, but as long as the guitar is assembled in America, does that fit the definition...

    What do I need? A DI/Splitter/etc.?

    Hi guys! Here's my goal: Split my Tele signal into two separate paths. One will go directly into my pedalboard, and the other will go directly into my UAD Apollo Twin Interface (which has (1) 1/4" input on the front, and (2) XLR inputs on the back). The signal output from a Strymon Iridium...

    Telecaster versus Stratocaster Poll.

    I'm borrowing a friends Stratocaster, and while I admit it's a better looking guitar (just MY opinion :) ) than a Tele, I think the Telecaster sounds better, AND also seems to stay in tune better :) As this is a Tele Forum, and I'm aware that some of you own a Strat and other guitars as well...

    I'm STILL struggling with whether I should go with a multi f/x unit (I like the GT-1000 a LOT based upon all the YouTube videos) or individual pedal based around a Strymon Iridium. Here's what's causing the confusion :) Lifelong musician, I play/record drums, bass guitar, keyboards, etc. for...

    Do you prefer a guitar that has a fairly long or fairly short sustain?

    If you strum an open chord fairly hard, do you prefer a guitar that sustains longer (say up to 10 seconds to finally not be heard, or one that sustains for just a few seconds (around 5/7 seconds)?

    I need a good illustrated book for Jazz Chords.

    I play by ear (I can play a chord if I know what the name of the chord is), and I'm using jazz chords on many of my original songs that are written on a keyboard. My best friend, who has been playing guitar for 50+ years, doesn't look forward to playing the rhythm guitar chords on many of my...

    Fender Tone Master Deluxe Reverb or Twin Reverb?

    DISCLAIMER: Many of my Threads are intertwined :) It has been suggested in another Thread that perhaps a Tone Master Deluxe Reverb is favored more over the Tone Master Twin Reverb. The needs for either amp is mainly for recording at a home studio, but for the hell of it, I'll say you might...

    What 5 (or any number) pedals would you deem as essential?

    This Thread is an offshoot of my previous Thread regarding "Which of these two for my first Combo Amp?", the two being a Fender Tone Master Twin Reverb or a Katana Artist MKII. It dawned on me that it's not really a true "apples versus apples" competition, as the Katana is a modeler amp with a...

    Which of these two for my first Combo Amp?

    Okay, I'm tired of looking at this amp, and that amp, and with my convoluted thinking, it will be another year before I buy ANY amp :) I've narrowed it down to THESE two, and ONLY these two, so please help me out brothers and sisters, just as you ALWAYS do! To set the ground rules: 1) I...
