    Buying 1st Electric Guitar for Granddaughter- Advice Please?

    Get her a Classic Vibe. If money's too tight try to find a used one. But for an extra $75 - $100, a brand new one (in her choice of colors, as long as it's an appropriate color) with a custom engraved neckplate, like Martin says.

    wider necks and regular width necks (what do you think)

    I have bigger hands also (but short thick fingers) and I prefer a bigger neck.

    please read the rules people...

    What, like slings and arrows? Scottish claymores, mace, flail, throwing stars? Lightsabers, blasters, phasers, disruptors (switched series there)? Flintlock muskets, cap & ball, Gatling gun? Or more modern? From my cold dead hand? Or using a motorvehicle?

    I do a lot of volume swells, anchor my pinky to the PG near the volume knob and have never moved it on accident.

    My techology challenged 80 year old mother asked me what the difference between 4G (she has an iPhone 6) and 5G is. I told her 5G is 1 more G than 4. For when you need that extra push over the cliff.

    please read the rules people...

    Wait, there are rules? Here I thought I could swear, spit on the floor, wear my muddy boots in the house, burp during dinner, fart in mixed company, and blow my nose on my napkin at dinner.

    Do you think this kind of cruelty should be allowed to go on?

    I'm not a vegetarian- did that during my granola days. And nothing against the dairy (or meat) industry but this sickens me. I've been a hunter, and still fish, and every time I've taken an animal I gave thanks for that animal's life. There is always respect and decency there. As far as...

    ST is to me...your take on the glorious monster?

    For me personally its an outlet for my rock n' roll lifestyle. There are zero like minded individuals here. Everyone I made music with lives in other places, and other than the occasional text or email there's nothing. Couple guys won't even email ("I sit in front of a computer 8 hours a day...

    Monoprice 8 plug 9V PS?

    After upgrading from a boat anchor SS Peavey Stereo Chorus 400 to a Bugera V5 Infinium I've been adding pedals for what I gave up- chorus, EQ and boost (I use as a drive/dirt pedal, since the Bug is only 1 channel). I'm adding color pedals (analog delay, autowah, octave, volume wah and a comp)...

    Parents leave the TV on all the time- background noise kinda thing. Just walked downstairs, dad's reading, mom's on the computer. And PBS is fundraising- with a Doobie Brothers concert. Dad's tapping his foot to a rocking live version of Talk About Love. I can understand folk acts- Pete...

    Jumbo frets - pluses and minuses?

    My first electric, the Stratocaster in my avatar ('76 hardtail natural- homerun first swing!) has jumbo frets. Its all I know and when I play shorter fret guitars I feel I have to dig in more and press down more firmly. You other brothers can't deny.
