    ......what little gap there might be in the neck pocket of my guitar.

    ......whether tube amps are better than solid state amps.

    ......if the neck alignment on my Tele could be better.

    ......whether or nor tonewood does make a difference.

    ......that ditching the box playing, pentatonic scale approach actually does make me a better player.

    ......and so on, and so on, and so on.

    All things that don't really matter as far as I'm concerned.

    Can you post a few videos of your playing so we can evaluate whether you should care more about those things?

    ...whether this pickup or that pickup will make you sound like Billy Gibbons.
    That's my favorite.


    The radius of the neck, for God's sake.
    Really.
    It's a guitar.
    It has a neck.
    Grab it and play it.

    :oops:

    Just play ‘em and don’t worry about the minutiae, that’s my motto.

    If something really bothers me, I fix it. Otherwise, I’d rather play than worry.

    Does not caring affect tone?

    I can see your house from here.
    That's a big part of the hobby for some, basically everything guitar-related except playing them.

    This is rhe reason that I've been collecting guitars for 60 years. If one doesn't make me happy, I have several others to fall back on.
