    I know from more polite discussions that Les does more to get the sound right than almost anybody here. In that regard, he is a consummate professional, with a highly discriminating ear.

    I've posted many times about how important it is to set up an amp properly with every guitar. I always do that.

    A few minutes is enough for me to know whether I'm interested in an instrument or like playing it. You may need longer.

    The personal insult isn't necessary.

    Mmm the scratchy sound of steel against junk! Why don't Hanes use stainless steel wool in their underwear? I want to know...it sounds so much better.

    J/K all!

    A friend of a friend who played in the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra used to say "frets are a crutch"!

    Oh boy, here we go.

    Ok, new conspiracy: Paul makes magnetized frets to alter thought patterns....and control the weather. Discuss.

    It’s the phases of the moon that makes my magic happen. The ebbing and flowing of cool and mojo shifts with my lack of birds and dots on the DGT, in particular. Some of my best gigs were on full moons. The percentage of dancing drunk girls seemed to go up, too.

    This post ended up being more truth than anticipated. o_O

    Is a guitar more attractive on stand, or in hand?

    If the poles are aligned N-S does that make you sound like Eddie Van Halen?
