Shucks, I never said I wasn't as guilty as the next addict . . .
Please don’t take my post as criticism. Like I said, I’ve expressed the same opinions as you.
It’s all good.
We all have the “what’s it all about” feelings of gear futility.
I spend half or more of my time on keyboards, so I have less choice of colors and finish ...
But I appreciate a pretty guitar, well setup ...
Is it true bypass?
Is your mate 5? That's a conversation I had with a 5 year old recently...
Who cares? It’s fun. All hobbies and interests have an obsessive aspect that goes too far and serves no real general purpose, which is a huge part of the fun. Yes I have way too many pedals, and 5 amps, and yes I don’t need 5 strats, 4 teles, a Les Paul and 2 acoustics. Heck I can hardly my even play! But I love it.
I see nothing wrong with preferring their girlfriends....
Yes it is, but I'm afraid the flush of youth is passed on this particular specimen.
Ha, I wasn't taking it that way at all! No worries.
Yeah, we had heard about tuning and being in tune back then, but i remember it more as being a concept not a reality.
So.....which do you feel have better tone......your white keys or the black?
The difference between playing guitar and playing golf? Playing guitar can entertain people who aren't musicians.
TD lost his affection for a toad stool that got old and... (Wait for it...)
So... it's "vintage"!
I was watching speaker demos with my gf the other night and i asked her which one she liked best based on the demo. Not suprisingly; color was not mentioned or was even a factor. [Spoiler alert: she preferred the V30. I preferred the Creamback]
Also: I'd take a yellow guitar over red all day long if I were choosing on color alone. Why? Because yellow is awesome.
EDIT: Forgot to add that I have a number of friends who I woukd not invite to a sound test because I'm certain I'd either get a "they sound the same" or a "that guitar is too pointy, I like the curvy one" response.
There was a hardcore band from PA that used to come to central Ohio in the mid 2000s who's guitarist played an orange super strat (maybe an ibanez?). He crowd surfed at a gig(mid gig, mid song) where everyone was super into it, even though there were probably only 60 people there.
As we helped them load up that night, he said someone totally grabbed his junk;he wasn't sure it was one if the hot girls thatd been eyeing him, but "at least they had a feminine grip".
Neon guitars totally =victory .
TD, I must introduce you to my Steinberger Spirits.
“The answer is none. None more black.”
You really must stop taking about Joe Bonamassa that way.
It ain’t just guitars that they don’t recognize.
I did a few numbers in a big nightclub in South Africa one night, at the behest of friends.
Everything went well, my voice was dialed in, the playing was good. Got lots of gratifying, enthusiastic applause. The place was packed, and they loved us.
When I left the stage, a young man came running over to me, very excited, and told me, “I’ve got all your albums at home!”
I smiled and thanked him and continued on to find my friends.
I didn’t have the heart to tell him, in his wild excitement, that I don’t have any albums.
I still think of him sometimes and scratch my head, wondering who he thought I was?
Non-musicians not only can’t tell guitars apart, they can’t tell singers apart, and probably can’t tell anything else apart. They just like music.
We’re the ones who take it apart and examine every piece.
Send me your Tele and LP, I'll PM you my address and pay for the shipping.
Oh, not so keen on that idea huh?...
