The 'metallic' sound of electronic amps can be appealing to some people out there. I like tubes though.


They sound flat to me. I mostly like to play clean with a little reverb and presence.

My baby got hurt at a gig over the weekend! Crying or Very sad



The picture looks kind of cool though! It was taken in a van on the way home. Laughing

The spot needs to be filled. The neck will then be relacquered and buffed. I hope it comes out good.

Growing up (and in college) I played low brass (euphonium, trombone, and tuba). I sold or gave away all my low brass instruments a few years ago. I DO still have a few trumpets that I goof around with from time to time.

I've always wanted to play guitar...but a combination of a lack of effort, extremely short and inflexible fingers, and wavering desire has held me back.

There's nothing wrong with a little battle damage, it shows that you were trying! how did it happen? I play the guitar and sing in a band, at the moment I am playing my strat 'plus' the most. I have put a seymor duncan jb humbucker in the bridge position because the stock lace sensor did not distort very well. Until recently I was playing my ibanez (don't know the model no, it's just black!)
My pride and joy though is my Fender jazmaster limited edition, I picked it up cheap from a 2nd hand shop who had no idea that it was quite rare, neither did I at the time! I can't play it in my band though because it would just get destroyed, we tend to go all out when we play, so we need robust stuff!

It's not a very sexy story. My hands were all sweaty and it slipped while I was putting in a stand. It fell face first and hit a cable. The bass is a little top heavy, so that didn't help.

You have a nice collection of Fenders there. What style of music do you play?

I was in the marching band (playing tuba), pep band (playing trombone), and a concert band (playing euphonium). Also sang in my college's all men choir (Varsity Bards).

Also did the drum and bugle thing in basic training and tech school (US Air Force).

Yeah, that's the worst thing about gigs, the sweatiness is never attractive! The band we get compared to the most is Tool I guess, which I kinda get from a song structure point of view, but we are more energetic/aggressive and not so progressive and ambient.

How about you?

I got my baby back today! They did a real nice job on the neck. I cannot see the chip or filler. The lacquer on the back looks even better than it did from the factory. Very Happy
