Sounds like a Rhett Schull video that OP is talking about. You're missing the point. The point isn't that your everyday guitarist is doing this. He did it to make a video, to get views, to gain more subscribers, and to put food on the table. The whole point of the video is to inform and entertain. Hey, guitars don't come from the factory in the most perfect shape. Can they be played and sound great? Of course. Hey, this is what the measurements and tolerances can look like out of the factory. Kind of a cool machine that can see this, right? Has a few millimeters ever stopped Jimi Hendrix or SRV from kicking ass on guitar? Of course not. I'm 38 years old. When I was a teen and in my 20s, I rode a motorcycle every single day, rain or shine. I was really into motorcycle tech, and modding or adjusting bikes to perform better on the track or on the street. All the old farts on the forum would sit around and say, "What's the point of all that? Just get out there and ride your bike. Enjoy the open road and feel the wind on your face." While I get the point, sometimes I just wanna say F*CK YOU, OLD MAN! Part of the enjoyment is understanding how and why things work. Part of the excitement is knowing it's within your control to change the experience. I want to know that the motor I'm throwing around the mountains was checked and maintained by me, and that every fluid and bolt and screw is as it should be because I did all that work myself. I figured my attitude toward this would change as I got a little bit older. Maybe I have a long way to go. But even now, it seems lame to me when dudes say "Just plug it in and play it." Maybe some people enjoy tweaking, modding, etc. more than you do? I mean, this entire forum is filled with people building and tweaking amps, hobbling together partscasters, etc. Why buy a $5,000 automatic watch when a $50 Timex will do? Why buy a $3,000 Les Paul when a $300 Epiphone will do? We don't want to just look at the time or strum some chords. Some of us appreciate heritage, engineering, the ability to tweak and modify, etc. Live and let live.
