    What is your favorite Gretsch bracing and why?

    This explains bracing types: https://www.gretschguitars.com/support/specs-explained/bracing Tone is more than bracing alone. Thickness of the top(3-ply vs 5-ply) is a factor too. I don't have a preference but I only have experience with trestle and sound posts. While I'm here...what do they...

    Fixed that on-or-off tone pot

    "Cap in yo ass" get's a whole new meaning. 😂

    No problem with hats, I actually wear them to keep the hair in check.

    All-Purpose Meat Smoking Thread

    I've never smoked meat so have nothing useful to add, but I can tell this has the makings of a good thread.

    Scammers on Reverb

    This is a weird one to me. "Excellent feedback as a buyer" and then goes rogue? A lot of parcel deliveries have a option to move the day or time of delivery and sometimes the address, but that means someone had access to his delivery details or account. It could happen I suppose.

    What do you know about a Gretsch Alligator?

    It's nice enough, but mine came inexplicably with rough frets. Levelled but not dressed. Never seen anything like it.

    If I could use 3000euros for guitar...

    They're expensive and gimmicky. That said, I may try my hand at building my own one day. :)

    First world issue Amazon rant

    I’m betting good money on it if they ship small pocket sized stuff in an appropriate sized box, will see a dramatic increase in “displaced” parcels... In fact I suspect that might be the reasoning behind the oversized packaging.

    First world issue Amazon rant

    It’s almost criminal! They make pop toys now, same principle but a small plastic board with bubbles which can be popped infinitely. My little princess has one.

    telecaster electronics help!

    As said before, these are thin strands that are easy to accidently pull apart. Did you get a Over Load or Infinity reading when you did the measurements?

    Wearing shorts on stage

    Exactly Henry...The older I get the more petty any annoyances from my youth seem to have become. I really don’t care care what anyone wears. Same I'm able to note the sloppy dress sense of a waiter/waitress in a restaurant and perhaps make an unfair assumption on the level of service, while...

    Stanley FX Abbey Road Reverb Stand-Alone Pedal

    Tnx. AFAIK Stanley FX actually did very little in regards to the echo emulation. They make use of the exact same algorithms as used in the old eTap2HW as programmed by Peter "Piet" Verbruggen. The eTap2HW was offered as a DIY kit by Newtone(A modest Dutch online FX DIY community which I used...
