    Hm. Ask us a hard one!

    I'm a grumpy old guy, and I love the crazy dos women wear these days. Some of the guys' hair formations are another story . . . .

    I actually didn't reallize that we grumpy old guys were the vast majority here until the Woodstock fiftieth anniversary threads popped up a few weeks ago. I learned that:

    - it was no fun.
    - everyone got sick.
    - everyone sat on piles of garbage.
    - anyone who claims to have been there is a liar.
    - the music was just a bunch of two-chord jams.
    - the music sucked.
    - there were only 50,000 people there.

    Live and learn!

    I don’t know what this is all about but I feel right at home with my fellow curmudgeons ;)

    I should’ve been born in 1940

    Honestly, I always regarded the telecaster as grampa's guitar... And this is a telecaster forum...

    I think the tuners were Gotohs, first year had Gotoh logos til they got the P. If you still have the knobs and pickups check out the prices on eBay, you could be sitting on a gold mine!

    I have to smile that the op was complaining about a 5 page thread about us all grumping along , yet his post being grumpy at us all has now gone on for 15 pages. Oh the irony.

    Hello. The OP of the now infamous pink hair question thread here.

    It seems almost no one actually read my original question post properly except you.

    Well done!

    I’m grumpy because I had surgery 3 days ago and cannot sleep as a result.

    How dare you call me a Grumpy Old Man, you young whipper snapper.

    If I was 40 years younger I'd give you a good hiding (if I could catch you).

    I don't accept the premise of the title of the thread: Is this just the Grumpy Old Man forum.

    The OP is a 34 year old man who has taken exception to the attitude of some older members to younger women - as is his right. But, he chooses to express his feelings not through pity and derision "you pathetic old sods", but through borderline-anger. The many responses to him from these alleged "grumpies" might be summarised as "lighten up kid".

    Who is really grumpy here?

    Er yeah we did ,

    Here it is again though in case ya forgot.

    Or purple or blue. It looks like it is deliberately partially/very badly done, which is what attracts my curiosity. I see this look also on otherwise quite conventional looking women. Lots of it in London where I am. Is there an urban code to the shade?

    I asked my student daughter and she said maybe because it makes them look more rad or hip.



    Don't you go jumping ship now lol:p

    It’s all about straps. All these young kids with big guitar straps for small guitars. Real straps are small.
