    Don't laugh this is serious.

    Can I play out wearing a teddy boy jacket ( a drape?) and english creepers?
    Or should I play a Gretch Chet Atkins with my chosen ensemble of the evenning.

    Which guitars and which fashion statements are just too too to even consider?
    Does barrel saddles require a differant style of shoes or hair style?
    What goes go with a sparkle finish.
    What to tacky to wear with a sparkle finish.
    Can yo wear cuban healed mules and play a strat?
    No, this is very, very serious, do you wear the tele or does the tele wear you.
    Is your public image strong enough for the forceful lines of the telecaster or do need the
    Softer lines of a strat to express the inner you.
    Which guitar makes you a babe magnet?
    Natural finish or solid color?
    Don't be shy, show us what you got.

    I had to google both of those, and I'm still not sure what English Creepers are, but I say "Hell Yes!"

    Your avoid the question. Yes you are.

    Are you saying carrot top bless his pointy little head could play a tele at any time in his act

    Creepers / tele
    See below

    This is serious....well ok it an imagine study for a project, re:types of guitars and personal self image. Part of personal self image is social persona and style of instrument ( guitar).
    So come on be serious.

    Those shoes are... interesting.

    I'm not sure I'd want to wear them in public, let alone on stage. :p

    Considering I showed up to my guitar lessons last Friday with my Guild GAD GC-2 and wearing my trusty old Slayer Hoodie, I dont think the attire matters :lol:

    No.
    Sure, why not?
    The third question doesn't make sense. "too too"???
    No.
    Anything.
    Nothing.
    No.
    I wear the Tele.
    Irrelevant, silly question.
    None.
    Either one.

    Really? This is serious? If you need to ask, then just wear regular pants and a regular shirt and be a normal 65-yr-old man, instead of trying to look younger and be something you're not.

    Is this all about being too short? Over across the way in Frisco no problem, in Oakland, mmm I dunno about wearing them things, maybe put 'em on when you get where you're going. What if you had an accident and you had to get out of the car? What if it was serious and you went to the hospital and them big ol' creepers were sticking out from under the sheet on the gurney? You might die of your injuries while they were treating you for a foot disorder!

    Depends on where you're playing- I know places where you'd get beat up in something like that...

    Listen to the voices in your head. If your instincts tell you that stuff works, just add the guitar.

    Also known as "Brothel Creepers". A dress shoe with a really big crepe sole that when you walk no one can hear you coming. It's the same sole found on desert boots.

    But you know In Tweed We Trust
