    Edge: Great Guitarist?

    it takes the dude 30-40 guitars to get through a set. that and all of the effects that go with them. meanwhile, the dude hasn't learned to play anything else. ever. uh. am i supposed to be impressed by that? not as bad as a current clip of the rolled stones, but bordering on unlistenable.

    Fender tonemaster gut pics?

    uh, Melville scholar, here. Mocha Dick was a 'minnow' around 1750ish or earlier and made it to the 1838. The Essex was sunk in 1820. Show me the digital effects pedal from then.

    Are guitar hobbyist gullible morons??? Glenn makes the case as to why it may be true.

    nope: it's like having your divorce attorney on speed dial at the wedding. or a fly in the chardonnay the whole "i'm only in this for what i can make on the re-sale" is frankly horrifying to me.

    New Aerodyne line?

    hmm. high gloss lipstick on the same old pigs. but built in Japan where the pass-through rate is better, but at prices charged for usedta be 'american' product. The only problem solved here (leaving aside the ones raised for marketing hacks and pay-to-play pseudo-reviewers) is the lame...

    Do a lot of people use 9's on Telecasters?

    why does OP or anyone care what someone who isn't them uses? experiment, find what works for YOU. and then become a little more you, not a little less you by being a copy of someone else.

    for a couple years Riley B used a Gibson SS cuz they paid him to. But it t'weren't his golden age. Fender Twins.

    Jazz guys: Why do I like Julian Lage?

    aside from his mentorship from jim hall . . . Lage can, but doesn't really play jazz. he plays pop that occasionally goes 'out.' in that sense, he's closer to jerry garcia and trey anastasio than you might think . . .

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

    The sarcasm and condescendence dripping from your comments makes me glad I will never have to deal with you. a 'technical' difference does not necessarily equate to functional difference. Once you get past the made-up stuff about things that do not make a difference in playability it comes...

    Tele blend wiring

    same. and same. iirc, no resistor, no cap, so the pots (250) are doing all the tone work. and. remembered: switched the blend, so that bridge is blended with neck, not vice-versa . . .

    Pau ferro

    marketing will say whatever it takes. now, for the fretboard wood making the induced electro-magnetic signal from the pickups sound different. REALLY? are you playing fretless? possibly, POSSIBLY, the characteristics of the wood might affect at some infinitesimal level, how the fret and...

    Just got a 1975 Twin Reverb. Got some questions...

    1. experiment & go with what you like. Be cautious about accepting "expert" advice. They don't live in your head or environment. 2. Does 'good shape' mean re-capped? If not, replacing the filter caps matters way more than what transformer. 3. if you like the way it plays now, i wouldn't...

    Squier or Sire..... What Do You Think ?

    neither. I have no desire to encourage zombie brands like Fender, who are literally throwing sub-standard product on the market, charging a brand premium established by a company that hasn't existed since 1965, and deconstructing the myth that brand premium's allegedly based on by treating...

    Layoffs in Corona factory

    read Fender's Indeed page. dumpster fire workplace by most accounts, & oddly a lot of the 'good' reviews came from people who got fired 2 months in. But read through it & you'll get a pretty good idea why that 50% rework rate exists. Buy a new Fender, Charvel, EVH and you're sending $$ to...
