    Yeah, I gotta be honest. I got a real, all original, MIA Strat ( not from GC, I didn't) and TBH, it's
    nice, but ennhh. IMO, a fair amount of the cork sniffery around here is a lot of sucking wind. A real player can make a 10$ Ukulele sound good. The best gear in the world isn't going to make a so-so player sound great.

    Those nights on a gig before the last night and load out, the band was about the music and the instruments giving the the folks in the club some of what they came for. Then when the last set was done, instruments packed up, PA and lights shut down there was the afterwards. We talk a lot about music here, gear and guitars, and I have learned a lot. This thread is the afterwards.

    Many more than just those two. McCartney, Harrison and Lennon all had Casinos. Paul got his first and may have been on Taxman. Lennon bought his in 1966 and it was his main guitar through the remainder of the Beatles and into the Platic Ono Band.

    Hmmm... maybe the forum name should be changed to fit Mr. Grumpypants' and the rat packs preferences. Interesting how the base of the complaint is in the name of the entity in question.

    It was getting a bit stagnant around here.

    I do, but only because I've done a lot of Southwestern cooking since moving to AZ. More information, better cooking. If you're doing something innovative, I need to know about it.

    I'm in it for the tortilla, not just the **** people stuff in them.

    KISS principle. Make a good Tortilla, and noone cares wtf is inside, they'll still eat it.

    Those tiny paper thin corn torts are awesome. The street tacos use those. Nom nom

    I don't think UberEats delivers that far away... but I'm in it for the Taco not the appraisal.

    This is a gear related forum.. where we talk about and often criticize or praise gear. I have no idea what somebody posted and maybe it was inappropriate but I find the question you pose to be... interesting ... considering this is a forum about strats in particular, and guitar gear in general.. with various forums differentiated by WHICH gear people are talking about...
