    Grocery store pricing themselves out of their market

    I think grocery prices are up everywhere. So it's not just that one store pricing themselves out of the market. This past week I spent almost double on groceries than what I normally spend. I did get a few more items than I usually get, but not a whole lot more.

    Rob O'Reilly guitar: Cool or gimmicky?

    I wasn't following everything Gibson was doing at the time, so I'm probably not totally informed on this, but I'd think things like coil split, etc. wouldn't have any bearing on how well the robot tuners worked. Maybe not enough attention to detail if they have too many things going on at the...

    Rob O'Reilly guitar: Cool or gimmicky?

    I had seen some people say they didn't like the idea of robo-tuners because they seemed like something for beginner guitar players; either that or they thought they were gimmicky because they'd say it's not that hard to tune a guitar. But I've heard other people say the quick tuning from...

    What does that mean?

    Rob O'Reilly guitar: Cool or gimmicky?

    I doubt they'd make the guitar so that it would refuse to work if there's an update. But one could check for updates before a live performance in order to get ready (though you might not want to - If it's not broken, don't fix it).

    Rob O'Reilly guitar: Cool or gimmicky?

    Those robo tuners weren't specifically a Gibson product though, were they? I thought they were another brand that Gibson licensed to install on their guitars as stock, but I thought they were available separately to be installed on any guitar.

    Rob O'Reilly guitar: Cool or gimmicky?

    I tend to agree, I thought those robot tuners were an interesting idea. I didn't immediately buy a set for my guitar(s), but I can see how it would be convenient to have them automatically tune the guitar. And I wouldn't call them obsolete. It definitely seems like there are a lot of people...

    Rob O'Reilly guitar: Cool or gimmicky?

    I just saw a video on YouTube about this Rob O'Reilly guitar that has some effects built in, MIDI connectivity, and even a screen on it: Useful or gimmicky? This is another review: https://www.musicradar.com/reviews/rob-oreilly-expressiv-midi-pro :

    Would You Buy A Laptop From Amazon?

    Can you elaborate? Why don't you like Amazon?

    Would You Buy A Laptop From Amazon?

    Why not? I've shopped on Amazon for years and have bought computer parts & many other things from Amazon. I'd trust buying a laptop from Amazon like any other store. I've gotten used to buying a lot of things online over the years.

    Are Noiseless pickups from 1991 Strat worth buying?

    I think there are some noiseless pickups from other companies that sound pretty darn good. I really like Kinman's pickups, but I also think Zexcoil's pickups and the Lace Holy Grails sound pretty good. Others may disagree though.

    What I said was "pups" as short for pickups bugs me. I'm just fine thinking of puppies.
