It wasn't broken; why did you "fix" it? :(

    I wasn't into soda back then, but living in the kingdom of Coca Cola (Atlanta) was interesting during all of that. There is a religious position that a majority of Atlantans seem to take - Coke is good, Pepsi is evil.

    I do know that Pepsi and Coke are very different and I could easily identify in a blind test. But classic vs. original coke? I have no idea! I'm not even sure I know where to find new coke.

    Only a bridge Dynasonic needs to have "slightly hotter output than their vintage counterparts". I prefer the neck pickup to be "vastly less output than their vintage counterparts."

    I also prefer cane sugar but I actually don't like the Mexican Coke as much as it tastes sweeter to me - Classic Coke is more acidic and crisp on my tongue. Not sure if that is due to the type or amount of sweetener.

    I drink Coke now maybe once every 3 months, usually when going to In n Out on a road trip.

    My current soda of choice is Reed's Extra Ginger Ale, sweetened with honey and cane sugar.

    Apart from the latest pickup deviating from vintage-spec, Guild is apparently making some nice guitars.

    It may be the fructose syrup or something else making it crisp. I’ve bought some of the imported Coke and found it to be normal, and other times a bit more flat. I know cane sugar is a sweetener. But it seems like for some reason it’s got a shorter lifespan and goes flat sooner. Although maybe it’s another ingredient causing the corn syrup to last longer or give it more bite.

    Reeds sounds tasty. There’s so many micro soda companies out there now.

    Yeah, its a wonderful consumer age. Aside from not putting crap like corn syrup in it, but actual food ingredients, they also tend to be much less sweet tasting and catered to adults. I'm not really a dessert person and many sweets are just too overwhelming for me. I actually get a sore throat when something is too sugary.
