    Isn't she lovely?!

    I'm happy to be living in a day and time when shapely and voluptuous are respectable adjectives again.

    (Insert amp, guitar, strings, pickups, pedal) is too compressed/lacks dynamics.

    Get a thick pick and learn to play. While I fart in the general direction of deluded people who argue that tone is all in the hands/fingers, I will grant that much of dynamics lives there. When I was learning to play - in the eighties - you couldn't just go buy some 100.00 modeller and have the gain to play the popular stuff. Unless you had a pretty nice amp and a place to open it up you had to get creative to have the gain. One thing I learned early was that you could pick harder or softer to control a lot of that. The younger players I was teaching later in the 90's and 2000's really didn't have a clue about that stuff because they didn't have to. Uphill both ways in 10 feet of snow is how I used to get my gain :lol:

    Long time lurker, first time ....blah, blah, blah, tonewood, pickup up, Tele, LP ect
    Can I build a guitar out of . . . (insert any wood)
    Where can I buy . . . (you name it anything guitar related)
    Where can I buy . . . (this is usually someone in a random European country and gets responses from mostly American folks


    Yup!

    This made me laugh.

    Which pick should i get?
    Steve Vai's solo in Stevies Spanking is the best solo ever played!
    I wired my guitar with push-back cloth 412-strand braided silver wire so it lets the more purer sound waves through! The 108 strand stuff i had on was constricting my sound!

    Wood Tones--THE LAST WORD!


    I thought Formica® was good; then I tried Corian®, then compressed concrete, then polished granite, then Corsican Marble. With every increase in hardness and mass, I gained sustain, but I missed warm, resonant tones. I finally found the dulcet, velvety tones of blended/compressed Guatemalan Fruit Bat Guano & Albino Mongolian Pony Manure!!


    My guitar sounds great, but for some reason nobody likes to play with me much any more!! The only gigs I ever get are outdoors, in a moderate breeze. They are only Indie Rock, where I play lightening-fast 230 Db totally-unrelated power chords through a pair of Svetlana EL34-equipped Marshall Stacks, occasionally fracture my skull with a Shure 55SH Mic, or Punk, where I wipe juicy boogers on my emergency orange pants-leg, scream incoherently in Abnaki and shake my goodies at my frenzied, DMT-fired, mosh-pit audience.
