    What is the criticism of the ash/rosewood combo?

    My experience is that a tele loses a little spank with rosewood.

    Electric shock at gig and how to test.

    Lots of great advice here but please don't discount your amp. It's a 70s silver face? This ain't the kind of thing you play around with until it happens again. Bring it to a tech, check leaky caps, all that stuff.

    anyone, regardless of how hard you've tried, come to the conclusion that you're not a gibson guy?

    I feel the same exact way. I never understand people that buy multiple guitars and then string them the same, adjust the action the same, put in the same ole pickups, like the frets all the same. To me a guitar has to look, play and sound different than the next to be special. Whether I am a...

    Your 1st guitar

    1975. My Dad took me to Daddy's Junky Music store in Portsmouth, NH. The salesman offered my dad the 10 yr old Strat, kinda dinged, or the brand new Hondo 2. I did not chose well, although that Hondo was treated like royalty for a long time.

    Guitar wall hanger with base?

    This hanger was similar to a string swing, but it has a base where the bottom of the guitar sat...almost like a mounted guitar stand. Can't find one like that for sale.

    Guitar wall hanger with base?

    i was at a mom and pop today, and their Taylor's were on a slat-board hanger, but there was also a base that they rested on. Unfortunately, neither mom nor pop were around to ask them about them. Does someone make these commercially for mounting on a normal (non slat) wall?

    1951 tele bridge pickup shootout

    I dunno man. I consider myself to have good ears and I just didn't hear enough here to really prefer one over the other. Whatever differences there are would appear to be easily compensated for with a slight nudge of the EQ. Neither seems particularly hotter than the other.

    Guitar Center: What are you doing?

    Stores pay about half LIST, not retail. The electronics pieces typically have even less margin. The rest of your argument is absolutely correct. Guitar Center and Walmart make money on volume, so it is a little ridiculous to me that a local Walmart wouldn't match their online price. It all...

    Anyone noticed a longevity change in D'addario XL strings?

    I use primarily dads but keep some guitars strung with other brands. I think that if d'ad changed their formula it would be very apparent in tone change, which I haven't noticed. Maybe your relief hasn't changed, but I'd still be willing to bet you are just experiencing humidity changes.

    Does Stringing Strings Over A Stop Tailpiece On A Gibson Guitar Make A Dif?

    I have a 79 LP Custom. For decades I poo-poo'd top wrapping. But I noticed the neck angle was forcing the bass strings to rub on the back of the bridge. So, I decked it and top wrapped, and lo and behold the clouds parted and Mr Paul spoke to me from the heavens. He borrowed a rock from...

    Let Us Now Praise Cheap but Excellent Guitars

    I bought a Gretsch electromatic from Musicians Friend using the july4 coupon, and I couldn't be happier. I simply can't believe this is a sub 1k guitar. I can't find a flaw on it. It came from MF in great shape. The neck was perfect and needed no adjustment. The action was easily lowered a...
