    Is there a difference? I always thought the term “cork sniffer” WAS sort of a parody. ;)

    The steering wheel is extra special in that it causes the vehicle to traverse non-straight roads, thus allowing you to arrive at more transportationally desirable locations. The brake pads are hand-picked to combine with the rotors to produce a veritable fantasy of safe stoppage, arrival and conveyance ecstasy.

    Like fine cigars, the guitar needs to be stored in a strong cedar case and kept buried at a depth of no less than four feet (two in warmer climates) to stabilize humidity and temperature only to be dug up when required...

    Which is all negated when he hugs that thing like a long-lost college buddy while playing.

    LOL.

    Imagine if every fret had an inlay.

    Mind blown.

    Check this bro, imagine if the whole guitar was made of inlay. So much resonances. Crazy harmonics like whoa.

    You need a neck completely made of MOP to completely blow your mind. If you go with 100% abalone, you'll end-up knocking the socks off that aren't even on...

    What can you say? Like individuals of a particular worldview which won't be mentioned here, with cork sniffers there is just SO much material to work with. The mockery truly writes itself.

    Don't even talk like this. When the first note was played, the instrument would collapse on itself and create a concentrated global gravity vacuum from which nothing could escape. The very thought terrifies me.

    Happens on TGP all the time. Just not as blatantly absurd. Or maybe not as tongue in cheek.

    I've been thinking about adding MOP and bracing to my Strats.

    I have a few people to whom I'd gladly ship such an instrument, ensuring their demise... granted you can calculate for me the spread of the guitar-created gravity-vacuum.

    Again: add MOP bracings for maximum effect.

    Same people here saying most cork sniffer guitar related snake oil is nonsense.......

    ........yet still believe rosewood fretboard has a darker tonality than maple fretboard.

    Frets are super tall, super skinny inlays.
    Contemplate.

    Wow.

    Right! As you know, rosewood does not have a darker tone.
    However I have personally observed that it does have an almost imperceptible, ever-so-slightly delayed immediacy to the attack, when compared in an A/B test to maple.

    Other people may not have observed this, which is not surprising since everyone has a different life experience, different perceptions and resulting different opinions and viewpoints.
    And that's
    okay.
