  1. I think it's cool. The "I don't care what you think" ethos is strong. Makes me really curious what sort of songs got played with it, or if it was just created as a steampunk prop. My romantic side wants it to be an old blues guy, but it could be a guy playing country songs wearing only red, white, and blue speedos and a ten gallon hat.
  2. That looks like a nice guitar! Congrats and welcome. 😎
  3. I remember the necks on those old Peaveys were wide and not very chunky. I really liked the ones I tried. I think the main thing with fixing the holes is to manage your expectations. They end up being almost as noticeable or more in my experience.
  4. I've heard your playing. You've got no basis for criticizing mine. You're acting like a child. Goodbye troll.
  5. Well said! I'll work on my talent. Nice guy.
  6. You think Guthrie Govan is mediocre poop and Blackmore is God. I don't think we can move forward from here, champ. My posting used to be mostly responding to people about legit guitar stuff. Now it's facebook here.
  7. One person's peanut is another person's allergy.
  8. I really don't get the hatred angle. It's called personal taste. I don't think Richie Blackmore is "poop" just because of his limited technical ability. I just avoid listening to him and move on.
  9. Why use Google when you can get somebody else to do it for you?
  10. They're just trying to make a living in the music biz. Criticizing their guitar skill is a bit rough. Why not just ignore their videos if you find them repulsive?
  11. It's hard to tell from the photos.
  12. I think there's an internet cake up for grabs.
  13. It's just personal taste. My Strat has decades of wear from my hands, but I don't personally go out of my way to make it look worn. I can't hate on people that like the look of aged stuff. Even if it's simulated age, why does that bug some people so much? It's entertainment and art, which carries an element of illusion. Just look at the wigs on all the old rockers.
  14. There's a chance that the unused contacts are oxidized. I'd give them a gentle clean with a little piece of super fine sandpaper (1000 grit).
  15. That looks cool! Sounds like you're on the right track.
  16. If you haven't already I'd mess around with the pickup heights first. Most guitars I come across have them adjusted too close to the strings. Any specific recommendation will be based on the type of music you play. 😎
  17. No offense intended. I think I've got a narrow view of what a guitar god is. 😎
  18. Conventional? He's running through a list of classic guitarist styles so yeah I agree! Duane seems like a nice guy, but his guitar technique is really too artistic (read didn't practice enough) for a thread about guitar gods. 😉
