    Saying "100% of the time" is the best way to get disproven by counter-example.

    For example, I drank one ounce of Nyquil last night.

    There you go.

    +20 years later, I still think the armour and mask Deicide vocalist/bassist, Glen Benton used to wear on stage is cool. :metal:

    I still and have always liked B.C. Rich, U.S. custom shop, Kerry King signature guitars with the Tribal paint jobs. :metal:

    -i think fieldy is a talented bassist
    -i think Most Djent bands are incredibly talented but sound terrible
    -i think most guitar solos are pointless
    -i think amp sims and programmed drums make metal sound bland
    -i think bass VI's sound better than 8-string guitars
    -i think lunchables makes the best pizza on earth (especially cold)
    -i think that using 3 chords to write massive amounts of songs requires more talent than knowing every chord and scale

    ME: You are better off with a chinese/indo guitar that has the features/spec you want than a USA guitar that has a bridge you cant stand, neck you can't stand etc."

    I see people all the time saying "Get the USA guitar - the other will be unplayable!!" Hogwash. And, quality does not turn Floyd Roses into fixed bridges. But you WILL get more interweb cred with the USA guitar, even if you can't stand playing it.

    Certainly has not sounded as good since! Yeah load tone is pretty darn good, but i still prefer TBA.

    I think I might be one of the only people who think the new Carvin Vader looks awful, particularly the green one (do they come in other colors? Don't remember...)

    I don't like Carvin guitars because of their body shapes. I don't know why but somehow their shapes are not striking me from an aesthetic perspective. In addition to that, most Kiesel Guitars are overdoing it imo regarding figured woods, colors etc. They look gaudy as hell.

    Korn is the best nu-Metal band and influenced way more artists than other metal bands of the last 15 years.

    I just hate the "Metal" lifestyle. I dislike the clothing, the hairstyles, I hate the glorification of alcohol. Hell, I even dislike the metal horn you form with your fingers. Still like some of the music.

    EDM is awesome and I love Dubstep.

    Classic metal albums are completely boring and unexciting by todays standard of music (e.g. Master Of Puppets, Reign In Blood, Altars Of Madness etc.).

    I hate raw lofi productions for black metal music.

    But "EMG" isn't how you spell "Bare Knuckle"... :lol:

    I have EMGs in almost every guitar I have. I know they aren't for everyone, but I don't get the hate...

    I like EMGs, too. But then, I even like some stock pickups. :flame:

    - I feel that out of all my guitars I've owned (30+), the EMG-equipped sounded best live.
    - I love TOM bridges, and the only thing I prefer more are hipshot-style bridges.
    - I've owned many 1980's Ibanez (ex: RG550, 540, 420, 565, 770, ect) and they all played pretty much the same despite price/value differences.
    - My RG8 felt better than my RG2228 I traded away.
    - Not a fan of the Duncan Nazgul at all, the Pegasus is pretty rad.
    - I think the stained Birdseye fingerboards Jeff does at Carvin are ugly as fvck.
    - Fat unsculpted neck-thru heels make me cringe, no matter which company.
    - The new Korean Strandberg Bodens are overpriced.
    - It seems most "progressive" bands today (especially Djent) just try to cram as much shit into one song as they can instead of trying to think outside the box.
    - I love Claudio Sanchez' (of Coheed and Cambria) voice.
    - I love Wiz Khalifa, Tyler The Creator, Hopsin, Tech N9ne, Migos, Rae Srummerd, Machine Gun Kelly, and countless more popular rappers, and even though I'm a massive prog-head, I'd rather listen to rap than most modern progressive music.
    - The Black Dahlia Murder are the best thing since sliced bread.

    Many more things I could list, but that felt nice.

    Most people tend to hate everything that I think, so rep going away is nice for me.

    - I think 99% of Carvins are kinda ugly on one way or another.
    - Superstrats are overrated and companies need to stop making so many.
    - Bolt-ons can be just as good as neck thru or set neck granted that pocket is tight as f*ck.
    - Nothing (for my tastes at least) will ever beat the classic mahogany body/maple neck guitar going into a overdriven Marshall/Marshall type EL34 tone.
    - A Boss Metal Zone into a Line 6 spider can get a halfway decent tone with enough dicking around.
    - Most Basses look cooler than most guitars.
    - Silverburst is the best finish ever.
    - Zebrawood is ugly.
    - American cars are stupid. All of them.
    - Chicago Deep Dish > NYC pizza (and I'm from the NYC area).
    - I think strandberg cornered itself strictly into the prog/tech metal market, and I will never buy one for that reason. Stone/Sludge for life.
    - Gibsons aren't really that terrible most of the time.
    - EVH can pull his head out of his own ass and go suck a d*ck.

    :agreed: (The only reason I'd personally want neck-thru is that it makes the guitar sound more like the neck wood, and macassar ebony in body-blank sizes is impossible to find)
    -The issue is people ruin it by leaving it all pale and gross, instead of giving it the oil and gloss that it needs. This piece looks perfectly yummy (even if the guitar is very-very art-deco).
