    Damn I missed celebrating. Yesterday November 27th was National Electric Guitar Day.Celebrated in honor of Jimi Hendrix's birthday. (He'd be only 76.) What would be best way to honor such a day? Maybe buy a guitar? Or piece of kit?

    Or how about a nice cake:

    if you change the selector switch, does it affect which cake layer you're tasting? With this type guitar, you truly can't have too many.

    I wonder if chocolate guitars sound different than white ones?

    Depends which tonal flour you use. I have heard Gold Medal produces far better sound than does Pillsbury. I'll check YouTube for any testing results.

    the intonation seems to be off, and the strings dont seem to be tuned up to pitch.

    3/10 guitar but im sure it makes up for it and sweet tones.

    Even better I've heard is small batch artisanal ground whole wheat. But it'll cost you. Looks great so everyone will think you have better tone.

    I made my wife take down her silly Christmas yard flag and flew this one to honor the day. Thought of you @drmilktruck when I ordered it.

    You choose whether it's the caterwauling or the blue guitar.

    If I could afford that I'd buy a Gretsch whose model number starts with a 6 instead of a bunch of WalMart 5's!!!!:eek:

    I thought my excuse for more gear had gone there, because l didn’t realise that was a day... but I’ve just remembered that I’m Scottish, this is St Andrew’s Day and that’s all the excuse I need! That and the Guitar Guitar pre-owned E-Mail has just dropped into my inbox.... oh, and it’s pay day! Happy St Andrew’s Day everyone!

    Vintage cakes from the '50's used Mother's Best Flour.

    I saw this as National Electric Guitar Day as in National Guitars.
