Trigger warning: Taylor Swift compared to Beatles!

“As the U.S. leg of the Eras Tour hits the history books after a SoFi Stadium finale, comparisons to even the greatest pop tours of the past are hard to come by — this one sits in its own league, business-wise and culturally.”

Does Variety read this forum?

Be well friends!

Fret HEIGHT and tone?

  • 8,179
  • 259
The original frets on my es335 were unplaybly low so I had it refreted with SS jumbos. That killed the tone on the guitar so I went back to nickel.

After much thinking I decided to go with jescar 55090. From what I've read this is what the Gibson usa line hade for a long time. I like how my SGs play and the woody sound they have, and when I measured the width it seemed to be 90, so that seemed the safest bet. I also didn't choose wider frets because I like the extra room further up the...

Strap locks. I don't like them anymore.

  • 6,248
  • 202
I don't know why
I've always used Schallers, the oldest set I have is like 25 years old, and they haven't failed me in any way.
But as of late, the simplicity of pull a strap on the peg - pull it off seems so tempting. I don't move on stage as much as I used to, although some b*tt wiggling is alas, still mandatory, and it only makes me want to ditch my good ole german locks.
So I ordered a bunch of oversized strap buttinz.

Can anyone relate?

Frontmen and singers who surprised you with their guitar chops?

  • 13,768

It's always a pleasant surprise when I find out the frontman of a band, who I would have assumed would be just a medium-skill rhythm player, has great chops.

When I was younger it was Billie Joe Armstrong's pentantonic blues solos that I thought were amazing and shockingly good. Though I'm less wowed by his chops these days, the "bro he can actually shred" thing kinda wore off, he's still probably underrated as a guitarist in the popular consciousness.

Springsteen was another one, he at...

I never really knew much about Tom Jones. Certainly never saw this side of him. This whole clip is great. He kisses a few broads, hits on sisters mid-verse, but the real fun starts at 1:20. The guy’s an F’ing lunatic, I may have to dig deeper into this freak's catalog.

What is causing this flake-off? What price would it appeal to you in this dire situation? I had to laugh a little at it still being called LIGHTLY AGED.

The guitar market is now a soft market

I have seen items I track on Reverb go down in price over the past six months. It is slow moving, but as the average or market price on open and recently sold listings moves down, that affects what new listings get priced at.

Here's Phillip McKnight's take on what he sees in the current market (at 2:17, then again at 2:08:14)

In your opinion, what is the best three album run in music history? I was going to restrict it to Rock, but any genre. Should make it interesting.

This is my pick, being a Metalhead. A 3 album run that began an entire music genre: 1. Black Sabbath:

I have purchased an expensive pedal off a dude on reverb. Was silly enough to paypal the money as a “gift”. Yes, i know.
The package had arrived but there was a stack of paper inside the box instead of a $600 device. Courier wasnt present while i opened the parcel
The seller filed a claim with GLS from his side, but GLS emailed him back with a “we don’t see any proof the package was tampered with under our custody”

Is there anything i can do?

FWIW the duct tape on the parcel was...
