Ok so I'm not an English major. Sue me...……………….heres your F#&*%*^% period. With no apostrophe. Does that bother you too?
I just happened to be surfing Youtube the other day. Came across this guy doing 30 minutes on why you can't keep Les Paul's in tune. Just had to vent.
It seems every time I turn around lately I hear someone saying that Les Paul's, though great sounding, just wont stay in tune.
Who here, who is a Les Paul player, has a problem with keeping your guitar in tune?
I have been playing guitar well over half of my life. Have played everything from the...
Interesting that Leo never stopped trying to improve on the Strat. With Pre 1980 Musicman, Pre 1990 G&L F-100 S-500 Comanche's. Of which I've had all, Which is why the only Strat I have left Is a heavy MOD.

In the 70's and early 80's played .008's on everything. Moved to .009's and stayed there till around 2002. Reports I've heard have Billy Gibbons playing .007's doesn't seem to bother his tone. But 10's for me. .011" are an acoustic string in my world.
DO NOT like plastic cases. Have had two or three. All were crap. For a fender. G&G case. Will not buy one in plastic.
Our rhythm player back in the day, loading out of a gig. Set his Musicmaster in case down behind his car. Night was dark, player was drunk. Got in car and backed over the case...
