    How much $$ worth are you in Gear?

    this is where I land too. I’ve got a lot of cash in gear but it was all spent during good times with no debt incurred as a result, so I regret nothing.

    Gearpage litmus test

    It's hard to be objective about one's own skills. Somedays I feel incredible and other days I feel pretty bad. If the question is can I cop Crossroads pretty well (like these ladies) then the answer is yes. But I don't know if this is a large enough sample size to really determine their skill...

    Access Gig Bag Stinks Of Mold/Mildew...

    Yeah - I don't tend to rehab moldy smelling gig bags. They're cheap enough to replace if they're that bad.

    Current Gibson LP Studios (Update: NGD)

    I’ve played several real nice studios. if you’ve played it and you dig it why wouldn’t you buy it?

    Is the Gibson custom shop worth it over a standard?

    I’ve got a r8 and a SG standard. Both are fantastic guitars. You really got to play one if you can and just buy the one that feels best.

    Heaven help me, I'm craving an SG

    I’ll always recommend a good used one - but I just bought a 2020 with a maestro and it’s one of my favorite guitars. Ever.

    Suggestions on who should refinish my LP?

    Ill say that MJT has done alright by me on F styles. No idea how an LP would go but I imagine they’d do at least good work

    Fedex issue, anyone ever have this happen?

    They all suck right now. It’s a huge issue with increased demand, social distancing requirements and staffing shortages. Certain hubs, like Atlanta, are regional or national hubs with significantly more traffic than a small distribution center in Duluth. What your experiencing totally sucks but...

    Is it tacky to use the Fender Custom Shop Strap?

    A guitarists strap has never changed my opinion of what they were doing on stage. If it’s a good strap that you like why wouldn’t you use it?

    School me on: Gibson ES-335!

    Like what @mdrake34 said they do sound different - but they're close. I fall on the LP side of the debate in terms of which one I like better. Only recommendation I really have is make sure you're using a PAF style pickup and I prefer low winds. Has a really nice open sound. Oh and crank the...

    Loosing the weight

    If you’re looking to get as light as possible I’d go anywhere but a les Paul as a starting platform. If it’s gotta be that guitar that I don’t see a ton of options but planing it down

    PRS DGT Not Staying in Tune

    sure sounds like the bit isn’t cut well and is likely sitting too high

    A solid glass guitar and neck.

    As an artistic statement it’s plenty impressive, it’s just totally impractical

    A solid glass guitar and neck.

    Gee. That seems a terrible idea

    Examples of Great Clean Tone from Humbuckers?

    Don’t be afraid to use your volume knob too. Lots of sparkle can be found in cleaned up drive tones. That’s probably my favorite way to get clean out of a humbucker

    Are SGs the best all round "couch" electric?

    I’ve honestly blurred the line between reality and sarcasm so hard that I don’t know what I meant
