    Any Partscaster fans out there?

    I finished one recently....and lo and behold, I almost had enough for another guitar! (Only 40 dollars in parts were required!) I haven't taken any photos...yet...but I'm wondering if there are any partscaster folks out there, and are any of these guitars your main players?

    I am a Total, and Complete TRAITOR

    I've been playing Strats lately. And I've been digging it. I'm done chasing tone. It's easier just to have a guitar where I can find a spot in the frequency range and be heard. I still pull out the Lesters, but for now it's Strats and Teles. It's a nice change of pace. :D

    Mayer vs. Bonamassa: Who's Better?

    This was easily the most annoying thing I could think up. :thumb: Both are the same age. They came up differently, but they're roughly in the same place these days as far as popularity and notoriety. Mayer: Lots of pop songs, intricate chord changes, multiple projects (He just got...

    I'm tired of superhero movies

    I am probably alone in this, but I've really hit a brick wall with these types of movies. When these movies started coming out in the 2000's, I thought they were cool. I read comic books as a kid, and seeing it all on the silver screen like that? Hey, I was impressed. But in the past...

    I'd rather practice on a cheap guitar

    I don't know if this is weird, but it's definitely something I've had to accept. Don't get me wrong, I have some really nice guitars. Included in that lot is a McCarthy Era Gibson, 2 that were built specifically for me,, 2 custom shop models. And sure, some pricey Gibsons... But you know...

    I don't mind ceramic pickups

    I really don't, especially if they're single coils. If you get the height adjusted on 'em they're not all that bad.... :D

    The "Esteban" Effect

    Anyone remember Esteban? That cheesy guy with the bolo hat and the bad flamenco licks who became a household name by hawking guitars on QVC/Home Shopping Network and everywhere else? I was recently watching a performance online from Greg Koch and it hit me.... ..this is how new guitar...

    50 Shades of Grey: You'll probably end up watching it

    50 Shades of Grey may create a run on whips and handcuffs but does it gives BDSM a bad name? The only reason I say this: it's as close as you're ever gonna get to having your SO sit through a porno movie. :laugh2:

    Jack Pearson PROVES it's not the guitar that matters!

    I don't know how many people pick up Guitar Player magazine, but this month they did an article on Jack Pearson. Who is he? Arguably the top sessions guy in Nashville (and yes, that IS something in a town full of badass guitar players). What's his guitar of choice? A Squier Bullet with stock...

    Yet another reason to hate American Idol

    I really cannot stand this show for a myriad of reasons. I think it has really fed into the notion of being able to bypass paying one's dues for a shot at the top. And it has made the discovery of new talent into a game show on TV. Oh, it's true it's long in the tooth now, and it's time...
