That I'm hilarious.
In order of importance:
1. Enough knowledge to have extremely informed opinions about other people's guitars
2. The chance to speak civilly to people whose bumper stickers would probably enrage me
3. 200 bucks' worth of stewmac goodies
Good friends. Lively, informative discussion. A beautiful bluebird photo that makes me smile whenever I look at it. Just small things that are oh, so important!
Maybe the scientist of the future (well not too far in the future, we’re gonna be extinct within 2000 years ya know) will be in as much awe of this sacred relic as we are
In my short time here, excellent advice from Fiesta Red on harp amplification and more.
Good info from others as well on different topics, but you asked for the 'best'.
Phewwww. Man, I'm glad you posted that we will be extinct in 2,000 years, I thought it was only 12. I've now got an extra 1988 years to find out what that thing is, and what it means!
When I was in high school I was watching Regis philbin and he said that a comet is gonna wipe us out in 2036
I think the other estimate is more likely though
Living remotely, this is my family, my social media, my breaking news network.
Someone here sent me free tubes to try out in an amp.
Someone informed me about the right speaker for my speaker cabinet.
Someone informed me about Grote guitars on Amazon.
I have learned a huge amount about pick-ups.
I learned about 9.5s
I put my entire very modest recording gear together from input from people here.
I received a free recording book from someone here.
I am learning about all of the crap coming as I get older.
I get to see the best Super Bowl commercials here.
I have met a couple members here.
I have gotten to know a couple special people here through PMs that are very like minded.
I have cooked some great meals from recipes shared here. Really great meals.
I enjoy my morning coffee and breaks from projects/chores with this group every day. Thank you all.

How to do a good setup
I came here to ask a question about Telecasters. I stayed here because I found the things that I once thought I could get from FB, but soon quit that because I felt betrayed and sullied. Things like honest, cheerful debate, unselfish advice and council, and some excellent humor. I'm grateful for all y'all.
I'm learning to shut my mouth and not post on certain topics. Mind you, the emphasis is I am still learning.
I've learned that there are smart, knowledgable musicians and builders that can help me when I need help. That there are things that can be learned that I knew nothing about: amps and cooking for example, and that I also have knowledge and/or opinions to share with others. Who wouda thunk it?
A bunch of clutch amp troubleshooting stuff, honest product options, cool build ideas and advice, a place to show off and talk about my partscasters.
I enjoy bantering with the folks on here and have gained knowledge on guitars and other things.
Also, that bridge pins have a drastic effect in tone and sound on an acoustic guitar. That the wood effects the tone of an electric. Those pesky pickups not so much. LOL
My favorite pickup is the Silverado. LOL
It's a great guitar-oriented community, IMO. I'm glad to be a part of it, participate/contribute something when I can.
Also, I have always gotten ( maybe given, too?) great tech/gear, or music help and answers, EVERY time I have had a question, and quickly!
People are a fantastic resource!
But I also, dig how there are Forums here, where we can get away from guitar stuff- talk about:
firewood, Scotch, pizza, dogs, fly fishing, muscle cars, wives & kids, drummers
So TDPRI Rocks!
I have learned that there are people who can apparently differentiate between (and will endlessly debate) the changes in tone caused by, well, almost anything - that a bat with above (bat)average hearing and equipped with an oscilloscope could not detect in a double-blind test.
Also, that there are still good people in the world.
I also learned how to follow @Ronkirn's awesome setup guide. That's what originally snared me...
And that you can talk about almost anything not guitar-related here (that isn't prohibited, of course), and someone might just listen.
And that no-one likes the Antigua finish.
