    Some guitars are too funny not to post

    I love how the body is supposed to look like the scars of being ridden hard, toured, etc... but the headstock, the part most likely to get damaged even in guitars listed as "mint"*, is still pristine somehow. (*what I mean is people who say "mint condition, aside from a chip in the headstock")

    T.V. shows you've been watching

    I've not seen it, and I don't know who the bass player is you're referring to, but I'm imagining Sting, then maybe Flea...maybe Paul McCartney...but then after those I start picturing Star Wars scenes with Robert Trujillo and Les Claypool.

    NGD: Kiesel DC600

    People have criticized Kiesel/Carvin's trem screws for years, but to me the center is too beefy do be drywall screws and they look exactly like McMaster Carr's "deck screws". No matter what they are, I don't recall ever hearing anyone have an issue that would be cause by the screw type (in my...

    It's like if Guild made a Warlock.

    It's like a Ritter, but bad. A Shitter, if you will.

    Terrible looking amp heads?

    The cabs being cream, with the white faces is what stuck out to me. Black and orange could have looked cooler. But I also hate guitars with, like, white pickguard and cream pickups so I might be biased.

    Not so much the heads, but...everywhere.

    US Political Discussion: Biden/Harris Edition (Rules in OP)

    An interesting read. https://www.pbs.org/newshour/politics/what-action-should-be-taken-on-guns-we-asked-every-senator?fbclid=IwAR0dWpT-_A8tRo3b2dkyXHkJIv7zBTH7R0RPor3eVyo4vb2Zqbb6Bri39OE

    US Political Discussion: Biden/Harris Edition (Rules in OP)

    He deleted it within I think a few minutes. But his later tweet claiming that it was a leftist, trans illegal immigrant stayed up for 2 hours after the original "source" deleted their own tweet. edit: CORRECTION: I was mistaken...the second one was Arizona Congressman Paul Gosar.

    US Political Discussion: Biden/Harris Edition (Rules in OP)

    Yeah, something like 30% of all of the weapons used in Chicago crime comes from neighboring states, and something like 10% of those can be traced to two stores in Indiana near the border (I'm sure I've got some of the numbers wrong, but the jist of it is that a substantial portion comes across...

    US Political Discussion: Biden/Harris Edition (Rules in OP)

    FWIW, the "red flags" of the New York shooter don't count, apparently, because the law was specifically written to exclude general threats, and a judge is only allowed to file a petition if there is a specific threat, to a specific person. Threats towards groups don't count. It also doesn't...

    What do you play besides Guitar and Bass?

    I can play "Wipeout" on drums. It's the one song I can play front-to-black. Other than that, I can make it sound like I play bass, uke and banjo, but I don't. If I don't have to play within a key, like...if I just get to play and hold a single random note, would that count? If so, add cello...

    Anyone else not like glossy guitar necks?

    Because if a body is already gloss, it's more expensive do do something different on the neck (except if it's a bolt-on), which many manufacturers do. But nobody (that I've ever seen) makes a satin or oiled body with a gloss neck.

    Anyone else not like glossy guitar necks?

    I can forgive a poly gloss neck (but would never order one on a custom build), but a gloss nitro neck is a deal-breaker for me, after swearing off them forever after outdoor Midwest summer gigs in the sun with a black Les Paul. My dry hands can skate up and down, no problem...but the moment my...

    "Not Worth its own thread" Thread

    There are companies that specialize in "old" cars with modern drivetrains, suspensions and tires, and sometimes even upgraded interior tech, air conditioning, etc. Singer is the first one I've heard of, and they do Porsche 911s. Some glorious stuff...but these end up costing, like, 2x or more...
