    A need to know basis?

    Are you a "stats" guy for the sports you follow? You can enjoy sports with or without lots of background info.

    Often the player has the specs.

    No way. I never listen when I play.

    If we are saying things that might get us banned...

    I have tried to like delay but I can't make it work for me. I'm good with reverb to add some depth to the sound. I don't dig the dotted eighth note sound of the edge. Give me a deluxe reverb and I am good to go straight in.

    Good on you OP, you fly your flag loud and proud.

    I'm the same way. I just don't care enough to worry about that stuff.

    I didn't know any of this stuff before guitar forums on the internet. Now I'm able to articulate what I like. Then sometimes I'll play a guitar with the wrong specs and love it. It makes me rethink everything I thought I liked all over again.

    Prior to the internet and guitar forums, I had no idea of any of my guitar specs. It never dawned on me to care. If the guitar felt good and sounded good, I bought it. Now with the internet, we can look up all sorts of things and fuss over dozens of options. As they say, a little information is a dangerous thing.

    When I was young, I worked in an electronics store. (Home and car audio) There were different groups of buyers. Budget buyers. How good does it sound buyers, Need every new feature buyers. And then there were what we called "Tweaks." They buy based mostly on specifications.
    They knew the specs on all different brands of audio gear. They were constantly worried about resistance, capacitors, power supplies, high frequency roll off, IC chips, gold connectors, grille cloth material etc. The best possible specs is what tripped their trigger. So we sold them what they wanted.

    I think there are loads tweaks in the guitar world. Nothing wrong with that, and nothing wrong if those things don't interest you. Players approach guitars and amps from many different angles. Just try to weed through the topics and learn the things YOU want to know about.

    I play a $4500 Custom Shop. "Yup, it's a Strat."

    I play my kid's $150 Squier. "Yup, it's a Strat."

    Everything in-between? All in your head.

    The only use I have for specs is when I want to:
    - get something that's the same because I already have one "whatever" I like
    - change something because I don't like it and I want something different

    Otherwise, none of it matters to me.
