    Guitar Snob? Nah, never heard that before!

    If this is called "odd", then I am odd as well; I feel exactly the same.

    What have you bought guitar-related in the past 48 hrs?

    A black working Volcano Rock-A-Teer P-bass clone with maple fretboard, for 35 euros. And a set of Kluson nickel tuners with Grover style knobs for my Yamaha FG420/12 that I am converting to 6 string, due to deformation of the top.

    Would that be the Roxy era? Best era Zappa in my opinion! You were lucky!

    The Fender Dhani Harrison signature model.

    For what I want to do with it, which is: noodle at home, it projects nicely, with an even and stable tone. The built in tuner works pretty good as well!

    The Fender Dhani Harrison signature model.

    Reviving an old thread, but: I got one. And I love it! Sounds so much better than my other soprano ukes, handles much better too. I mostly play these three songs on it currently: Bach’s Jesu joy of men’s desiring, Foo Fighters Times like these, and the start of Something by George Harrison.

    NGD: 2016 Indonesian 70s Stratocaster

    Thanks! So I paid €250 for it which I thought was reasonable. Did some research and because of the Duncan Designed pickups I am guessing this is a Vintage Modified Stratocaster, quality wise just under a Classic Vibe.

    NGD: 2016 Indonesian 70s Stratocaster

    So this week I picked up this black Indonesian made Squier Stratocaster, virtually unplayed by the looks, but already with little dents in the frets higher up the neck, as I discovered when I played it more thoroughly at home. Still, soundwise very good, I like the neck, started playing all...

    The guitarists in all of our DNA.

    Different for everyone, depends on music you listen to. For me: grew up with lots of beatles, lots of stones, lots of simon and garfunkel, learned to play guitar by listening to the Crossroads compilation cd box, and was completely overwhelmed when I heard Led Zeppelin for the first time as a...

    Is there a song worse than China Grove?

    Found another one much worse, that I actually had to play because the female singer in the band built her career around this song. Have you ever played this one as a bass player? It is basically 1 line repeated over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over...

    How many Esquires end up getting a neck pickup installed?

    It’s very simple. If you want a neck pickup, buy a Telecaster. Leave the Esquires to us folks that never use a neck pickup anyways.

    Your First Concert

    The first big concert I went to was Pinkpop 1991. From a single artist, it was U2 in Nijmegen 1993. I thought it was meh. Used to be a fan, not anymore after that. https://www.setlist.fm/setlist/u2/1993/goffertpark-nijmegen-netherlands-53d6fb55.html The same year I saw Peter Gabriel in...

    Dweezil showing off some of his dad's and his own gear

    Wellllll Red, why are you not on a didgeridoo forum then? 😁 I think I know what you mean, but this IS a forum about the appreciation of guitars. And not necessarily about good music even, come to think of it. Again, 2cts! 😉

    Dweezil showing off some of his dad's and his own gear

    Well I respectfully disagree.. ;) I would agree with you if DZ just would keep them in a shrine or something weird like that. But he plays those guitars and keeps them in working order, tinkers with them and tries stuff out, and is not afraid to modify some super rare Gibson reissue Roxy SGs...
