    NGD Kiesel 7string Delos "Mr.Pink"

    Absolutely not a Kiesel fan given their documented shoddy history here on this forum, but man, my liking for this thing upon opening the thread was genuinely unexpected! What a wonderful guitar! Pink guitars for the win!

    New Polyphia Single - Playing God

    Oh, I was solely talking about the nylon-string things.

    New Polyphia Single - Playing God

    You sure that they are not just custom thinline solidbody nylon-strings (like what so, so, so many big-box brand offers nowadays) but just with a FR body shape? Nothing about the guitars looks particularly interesting or noteworthy.

    NGD: I Found A Wirebird!

    This the one that was floating around on Reverb for awhile? I’ve seen it change hands at least 3-4 times pretty quickly, which had me wondering if something was wrong with it. Ya know, typical suspicions from seeing a particular guitar pop up for sale again and again and again.

    Good albums with disappointing sound/production

    All of Texas In July's material pre-2011. The Salt of the Earth EP, the Uncivilized 2-track single, and the I Am album. No clue why I didn't think about all of this until now considering that TIJ are one of my favorite bands and biggest musical influences, and I listen to their songs...

    > states dollar amount publicly on forum as if gloating (what is it with boomers doing this all the time?) > $14,000 really ain't that much when split amongst six instruments > "Willie Nelson" This right here just further solidifies my comments above. (#121 and #123.) This is everything that is...

    Nailed it. If you're brand new to playing an instrument, then you don't need to be shelling out for a custom or semi-custom build because you: 1.) aren't prepared for what can (and probably will) go wrong in the process (Murphy's law) 2.) don't know what you want as far as specs (takes...

    What the heck is the connection with shitty guitarists who also collect shitty dirt bikes and then attempt to use the dirt bikes to justify their ownership of a guitar? "I need a nice guitar because I have not just one, but MULTIPLE dirt bikes! YEEHAW!" I don't understand the connection. This...

    That is the effect that social media has had on people. People, especially super young players, feel this unreasonable urge to flex by saying "hey, I've got a nice guitar!" as a way to try to make up for the fact that their playing skills are total shit. Even before social media got to where it...

    Seymour Duncan moving 3 Custom Shop pickups to production models

    Pretty much, the AH1B was a production line Allan Holdsworth signature pickup. Not sure if it being a production line pickup was due to Duncan wanting to sell the model exclusively as an aftermarket pickup option for players or if it came stock in one of Allan's old signature guitars (like...

    Seymour Duncan moving 3 Custom Shop pickups to production models

    And meanwhile, I'm still sitting over here waiting for Duncan to bring back the Custom Shop Metal Fatigue Allan Holdsworth pickup as a production model again, like how it used to be the Duncan AH1B.

    NGD: Hapas Sludge 628

    I was wondering who received this after I saw Robert post these photos to the Hapas social media. So glad to see that this Sludge is in the hands of a fellow forum member! This board needs more Hapas content.

    Good albums with disappointing sound/production

    Maaan...I don't know why this one didn't pop into my mind immediately since I'm a huge NIN fan. 100% accurate. I mean, Trent was just cleaning toilets at a studio at that time in the 80s; and Pretty Hate Machine was him figuring things out in a kind of barebones production way afterhours...
