    started stringing up my jazzmaster build and realized that the bridge is too low in relation to the neck, so now I get to make a shim to make it taller.
    I also tweaked my back doing oly lifts yesterday so I've been fucking miserable all day.

    Yeah I placed the order on a Friday night, way after business hours, and got a very obvious automated email saying the request was denied. :lol:

    I was even going to keep it and budget a bit, but the guitar itself needs some minor fret work done that I don't have the tools for.

    I finally got an email back from the company and they're at least paying for the shipping, so goodbye randy rhoads, we hardly knew ye'.

    Hey, at least they covered you where it counts. That was the part I'd have been most upset about.

    Andertons TV used to actually be good and you saw a wide array of gear.
    Now however all we fuxking see on it is them choosing and gushing over Boss Katanas....

    Sick of it now. Every single vid

    why are you surprised that they'd push a product that the majority of their audience can actually afford and which happens to sound good?

    Because even in their "sound like" series where they try and recreate legendary artisist and their rigs - they still pick Katanas.....

    They're trying to "sound like," not "here's the gear your need if you want to have the same exact kit as EVH." For one, those JBLs or whatever they were would be a total pain to come by, and you'd have to find a decent alternative.

    But a fair few of them are "break the bank" so they basically give themselves unlimted budget and still seem to pick Katanas haha.

    I mean i get there will be a few legendary dudes/bands that used rare as hell things but most are going to use stuff you can still come by. (Say Marshall tube amps etc)

    I just find it annoying they always pick the same amp for most things. Its become less "sound like these artists" and more " all our vids sound the same because of same amp"

    They even know and joke about it which annoys me more lol

    Well, their videos are kinda annoying in general, even before "Just Add Katana!" was a thing. The tones are kinda uninspiring.

    I watched them a fair bit at one point, but I stopped before the Katana stuff because well... I would do a lot better picking gear to replicate the tones they're trying to replicate :lol: IMO they were actually pretty good in the beginning, but then it just started feeling like they're doing the same episode over and over...

    My back went out for no reason at all yesterday. Felt fine all day, sat up from the couch, now I feel like I need a walker.

    On the plus side it's pissing me off so much I'm forcing myself to move around and clean my pig sty apartment.
