    I believe if I hang out here much longer I will need a glossary to keep up with all the different terms, warmer, sweeter, spanky, thick, thin, and the list goes on and on. I am guessing there will be more than one definition on each one!

    'MOJO' Self precieved idea that a guitar is superior in tone because it's old wood and holds some magical properties usually generated by the owner who spent way to much for said guitar and must justify said purchase.

    ROFL. Yes, tonal adjectives which were never intended to describe sound, defined with more such adjectives, in a subjective way.:dude

    All original vintage amp = I just got done abusing this worn out POS, and it's gonna cost you at least twice what you paid to get it to sound good again.
