    "Tone" has been used in reference to musical instruments for centuries, starting in Greece about 2500 years ago: Online Etymology Dictionary

    You've got a lot of punchin' to do. You'd better eat your Wheaties.

    The title of this thread is misconceptions, I'm sure Jim was stating that as such, not as fact.

    pretty sure this one comes from tube amps listing their RMS watts while SS amps seem to like to list their total output power.

    When I discovered the flame top Les Paul type guitars 25 years ago, I actuallly believed, the flames are created by setting the guitar on fire....oh well, I was in my youth!

    well, once upon a time, I also thought electric guitars were made from plastic, and any flamed, quilted, spalted - you name it - surface was done with airbrush.

    and I still can´t get it out of my head, that a Telecaster is a guitar for girls!
    I´m honestly trying to broaden my horizon, but this is really hard for me to overcome. although I love the tone of some players, I just hate that headstock even more than the rest. you may stop clubbing me now, thanks!
