    Just like the title says. I seen this and thought, man, I'm glad I play a Tele and glad I play it though a nice 5e3 tube amp so my tone doesn't suck like this guys' does. You don't need to watch the whole thing unless you want. Trust me its bad. You only need to watch the first few minutes or so to get the idea.




    That guys tone is awful, and the facial expressions, omg :rolleyes: If you wana good laugh (as if you didn't laugh at that first vid) check this next one out, funny ass ***** (IMHO): :lol:

    Well!!! Sorry Night Prowler, I was expecting something really vomit-inducing but I actually found this eminently enjoyable!

    What a great dem for the Roland 60 and guitar playing styles in general! Entertainment to the max - and all his tones sounded great to me - really! And he can PLAY.

    I think if he removed the glasses and applied some makeup and wore something a little more flamboyant, suddenly his facial and bodily expressions make sense. Just 'cos he seems a little 'geeky', don't berate him for that.

    Thanx a lot for entertaining this guitarist - as one who can appreciate all styles of playing.

    You're entitled to your opinion. I never said he couldn't play, its the tone of his guitar(s) and that amp that I don't care for. And yes, one can certainly conclude he's entertaining!
    I couldn't stop laughing when I watched that second video. :lol:

    I don't think you can play like that on a Tele unless you file some points onto the body and headstock.

    I dont think his tone sucks at all. It's perfect for the music he's playing.

    He doesn't play a Tele and a 5e3? Lots to people don't, but that doesn't mean their tone sucks.

    The sad thing is I have an old Cube 60 and it works great for me. I don't use distortion but I play around with it at the house. With proper tweaking I can get decent distortion but not great. I would buy a pedal if I needed "real" distortion. For Jazz, however, I can get a surprisingly warm sweet tone.

    He's selling an inexpensive amp to an audience of kids who might well be using it for its metal/heavy rock tones. It's a very good amp with some fine, useable and giggable tones available. It might not be the thing for two-tube, 5 watt purists, but that's subjectivity for you!

    Looks like he's having quite a bit of fun. Isn't that what playing guitar is all about? And I don't think it's sounds all that bad.
