    Don't cross the few elite here who think they own the forum. If you post something they don't like they put you on ignore like anyone else cares. LOL

    Or just follow the rules of the site and don't be a jerk when someone tries to make sure you know the rules. I suppose we could have just reported him, let the mods/owners figure out if he was violating the no competing website rule but we figured better to let him know up front. Not our fault the guy decided to be a jerk in response. Guess you and Chilly Billy will be good friends since you share the same attitude.

    I don't think pedantic is fair. As a new member here you might be better off making friends and showing willingness to learn rather than calling us pedantic. This is a pre cbs sub forum. We're into these details here. Veneer boards are plenty disirable. Stevie Ray used one. Most of my strat loving friends prefer them to slabs as do I. I have always been told that Brazilian rosewood was the rule in the pre cbs era so not really relevant

    The responses here remind me of Tsims thread "what happened to this forum"

    It doesn't seem to me that the OP was a "jerk". He was polite all the time. That's quite unfair.

    You’re right, jerk was probably too harsh, he was very snarky in his reply telling me and Fezz to chill or relax when we were both trying to educate him about the rules and make sure he did no violate them. Bob was very polite in his responses other than that part. I’ve rethought my decision to send Bob to the cornfield. I really did dig his video and playing.

    Thank you for the kind words @rafasounds
    And thank you @Bazz Jass to make things clear, I was only quoting you to crack a joke...
    of course we are all "pedantic" when it comes to our nerdy stuff : )

    Well.. I enjoyed the video. I thought Bob was very entertaining and enthusiastic. Breath of fresh air even. An Italian talking about a Strat, latin style, instead of the usual Anglo supects.. ha ha.

    He certainly made me smile anyway.. :)

    Welcome to the forum Bob.. :thumb:

    Nice vid and welcome Bob

    I like to know what guitars sound like straight to the amp without any effects but the amps own reverb

    I have no idea what your guitar actually sounds like

    Thank you @albala! I think it's a matter of different "schools of thought", so to say. Of course I much respect your point of view and I myself often use to record the sound of a guitar plugged straight into an amp. Nevertheless I'm used to test a guitar in a complete setup, with sounds that are more "ductle" and useable in a live gig or recording, provided of course that you are using transparent, light and non-invasive effects. Also, in the video, the effects are carefully used with different degrees of boost/overdrive/distortion, which should give an idea. If you feel like doing so, just check out the sound of the '57 Les Paul Jr. in the last episode (BTR#04) and listen how different it sounds with exactly the same setup and how both guitars behave with their very own distinct "personality".
