    Is there anyone here who thinks guitars should never be modified?

    +1 I won't say I think guitars should never be modified, but I notice that a lot too. People will buy a guitar on-line, and even before they've got a chance to play the thing, they're buying new tuners and pups for it. The mindset, especially noticeable in any guitar forum I've ever been in, is...

    Crazy guitar for sale ad

    I am also one of those who doesn't like the "make an offer" ads. Give me some idea of what you want for it so I know if what I'm willing to pay is even in the ballpark. But if that's the way someone wants to advertise something, that's their business, I just don't respond to ads like that. But...

    Haven't touched my guitar in MONTHS (long post)

    +1 I've gone through phases where it's started to seem too much like a battle and I'm not satisfied with anything I'm playing, then I know it's time to just set it aside. Sometimes, it's just a question of becoming more interested in focusing more on one of my other too many interests and...

    Problem w/ guitar repair - advice needed

    It seems I've read in different forums about people doing that. Have you paid him already for the work he was supposed to do?

    Problem w/ guitar repair - advice needed

    Filing a complaint with the BBB is actually almost worthless. They don't take any action - they file your complaint and it's on record with them so if anyone is thinking of doing business with a company, they can check with the BBB to see if they've had any complaints filed in the past. But how...

    too much gear...too many tones.....what to do?

    Same for me, I had too much stuff, it did become a distraction. It was fun getting and having a bunch of guitars, but just deciding which one I felt like playing felt like a distraction. Then there's the extra "toys". the assortment of pedals, which I didn't have much of anyway, and stuff like...

    agile guitars

    For me, that is the definition of a high end guitar. If it does all of that, what else do you need? A big name on the headstock? But yeah, like others have said, a search will bring up a ton of stuff. I've had three and bought one for my son, still have two of them. Only sold the one because...

    Ebay: if you're not shipping internationally you're losing out

    That's 100% what it is for me why I won't ship internationally.

    Do you still wear your wedding ring when playing the guitar?

    Back when I was married, I used to take it off because I worried about it scratching the guitar. Sometimes I would forget to take it off, or didn't want to bother because I was just going to do some quick playing, and it never gave me a problem, so mostly I was taking it off just because I was...

    Tell some of your WORST on-line guitar purchase horror stories .....

    Guess I've been lucky, bought most of the too many guitars I've had, on-line, and not had any real horror stories. The worst was having bought a guitar on ebay, and it wasn't getting shipped, and I wasn't getting a response from the seller. I filed a dispute with PayPal and low and behold, I had...

    concensus on agile guitars

    I had one of those, it was a very nice guitar, but I decided I just don't like a goldtop finish, but loved the guitar otherwise. I bought my son a sunburst al2000, also a sweet guitar. I still have an Agile AD-201 and an Agile tele, which when thinning out some guitars, I chose to keep over the...

    Is Anybody Buying(Guitars,etc.) These Days?

    I've noticed most non-CONUS buyers are realistic about the extra shipping costs and are willing to pay the extra shipping, but for me, I won't do it because of the worry. I pack a guitar to the max, haven't "lost" one in shipping yet, but I still worry the whole time if one goes across country...

    Show us your family! (your guitar family)

    So many guitars, so few controls

    The same goes for me on that. I like LP style guitars, but don't like the controls. I finally found one that just had three knobs in a line with the pup switch down by the knobs, and it's been the only one I've kept. Of course I obviously prefer simpler anyway since teles are my favorite.
