    Wait! Am I the only not liking this? Approach, the sound, playing... all in general very bad atmosphere for a video that should be full of energy and keeping attention

    Errrrr ...
    Am I the ONLY person who watched that and thought WTF?
    When the rep from the company is looking wowed and states "Amazing!" whilst some truly mediocre and at time dire finger-picking is going on then I'm left surprised.
    That was very poor playing for a professional. I'd easily keep up and I'm an out of practice amateur!

    Isn't he the douchecanoe that took a Sharpie to a fairly rare 1930's Gibson archtop at some music store?

    @Boss 302 , I tried to "Like" your post more than once, but the forum seems to not let me express my appreciation for your thread!

    No, sir, you're not.

    Note to self: Just before crashing/ burning while trying to execute something, stop, put the guitar down and say "Wow, it's soo great", even better than the old "repeat mistake to make it look intentional" trick.
    Anyone ever try that during a gig???

    "Suprized" is too kind. The word is "are you serious??"

    Whatever you think of the playing, so what.
    That is your opinion, you are entitled to it.

    Not every guitarist, plays to the best of their ability, all the time.
    Nor should they have too, when trying out a different guitar.
    Keep that in mind, next time you drop a dud note in a music store.

    I like he knows each guitar and it comes over that he's genuinely happy to be playing them.

    So, somebody's opinion is this background is white and letters are black. That person is obviously blind or doesn't know colors.
    John 5 maybe doesn't have to play his best every time. Maybe iconic guitars don't have to sound according to their reputation and prices. That amp in the video maybe is the worst John could get.
    But:
    1. Why somebody should release video that everything (except guitars and amp) is under average convincing a lot people iconic guitars suck?
    2. Why some people who watch that are so excited?

    I just don't get it

    He seems like a nice guy, Chewbacca skin coat notwithstanding. I don't have much experience with his playing but I too was thinking he must be having an off day (it happens) and that amp sounded pretty bad. The only guitar that demonstration made me want was Kossoff's LP Junior and that was before he tuned it down.

    I don't like him because he looks like the bad guy from the original Mad Max movie and he scared me as a kid.

    Your first sentence, is gibberish.
    The second, wtf?

    Mate, do your self a favour, & don't bother to reply.
    In fact it is all gibberish, dud notes every where. :laugh2:

    I think you have made a point of sorts, maybe.
    Now do move, along & stop spoiling it for others.:cheers2:

    Spoiling?
    Your arguments are poor. Actually, I don't see any. Few of mine are standing up there, mocking... obviously.
    See, I don't reply.
    I don't insult also.
    So, it must make me a better man. With good hearing, of course.
    Your move, but be precise in describing this video how great it is.
    I'll join here in a few days, I must watch some videos worth watching. So, take your time.
