I guess that being taken onto stage and played for a few hours would mean it has more potential damage and abuse then being played anywhere else.
In my experience, people who gig take better care of their instruments. And since most places are nonsmoking now (at least in Ohio for the past couple decades or so) the nicotine that would age the finishes (as well as the skin and body of the breather) that wouldn't be a concern.
Nicotine damage could be as likely in someone's non-gigging places.
Most people are right-handed but most guitars are left-handed...or do I have that backwards in reverse?
Not sure what you mean? Handedness of guitars refers to the strumming hand. Most guitars are right-handed, and right-handed guitar players would strum with their right hand.
Yeah , but the left hand does all the hard work, so should'nt our right hand guitars really be referred to as left hand guitars?
How about when people say 'pups'??
You talking about pickups or puppies??
That's not always true. If you're fingerpicking, then the right hand is going to be doing a good amount of work. In some ways, fingerpicking might be harder work than pushing the strings down to form a chord.
Everything is vintage. Yesterday's newspaper is vintage, specifically yesterday's vintage.
Truss rod is free.
Really? But I have to pay for the rest of the guitar...
OK, 'headroom' is best regarded in any sound system you don't want to distort as the safety margin between the optimum operating level for a signal and the onset of clipping. Knowing how much headroom there is in an analogue mixing desk important if you want to get the most signal through it you can (hence with the lowest noise) without making everything sound fuzzy and distorted.
The concept also applies to guitar amps, but the criteria for what is desirable is somewhat different. A small valve/tube amp with a hot preamp stage won't have much headroom. As a result, it will probably be great for doing Gary Moore impressions in your home studio, but absolutely useless for getting clean chords on even a small gig.
The flip side of that is a 100W head often has so much headroom, that there is no way it will achieve 'rock hero' tones in a small club because the level through its circuits have to be set so low, the valves in the power section are almost idling, rather than driving into the natural compression that happens when the amp is turned up high.
What can you say bad about those?
I love it when people say that the vibration going into the body produces better tone and sustain. When tone is completely subjective, and sustain means the STRING vibrates more, not the body.
This is what I get for not reading the whole thread before posting. Not only did you make the same joke, you even grabbed the same photo.
"The way Leo built it" If you have something as simple as a 5 way switch in your guitar, its not how Leo built it, its how CBS built it. Dumb dumb dumb dumb statement.
There have been many instances of left handed people that play right handed cuz they could not get a lefty guitar and there have been instances where right hander's play a left handed guitar cuz in their mind they thought it would be logical to use their strong hand to fret with.
Then there is Michael Angelo Batio who is a freak of freaks and does whatever he wants.
Fretting out. I can get worried but I have never fretted out.
Yes...I always think Twain when I someone mentiones twang and I do not like Shanaia Twain or country music in general.
That sort of puts my tele into a corner that I don't want it to be in. I also don't like it when someone wants to try it out and immediately starts playing a country song "because hey its a telecaster"
Yeah!! For me telecasters mean Rock & Punk & Blues!!!
