EWWWWWWW


compensated brass saddles ftw!

I know your into performance guitars (from what Iv seen) but I figure for myself at least, if Danny Gatton/Jimmy Page/Pete Townsend can handle then so can I.

The 3 saddle bridge just feels at home and gives a slightly different sound when running through the same setup and turning up volume. I guess you could say twangier. Not to mention I like tele's because of there simplicity. If there was ever a tele genocide I could somewhat easily construct a new one.

One of the benefits of living with parents who make money:


I play guitar and trumpet but I still find myself returning to my old-fashioned upright the most. I particularly like the Kawai brand too, maybe it's just because I grew up playing on them. Unless I'm playing classical, I also prefer uprights to grands.

My trumpet is pretty decent, just haven't been playing as much I'd like since the jazz band I used to play with folded a couple months ago.

I can only recommend you use properly compensated saddles, instead of the awful un-intonatable stock ones.

I know we've not met, but if you're into taken advice from strangers, go for the trumpet my friend. That thing has the power to summon Zeus.

I personally hate the 3 saddle bridges. They dig into your hand. I liked this type of bridge, plus it doesn't have the ridge to hold the ash tray. So the right hand feels like a strat, but with the knobs in the wrong spot. Some didn't like this model because it's wired hotter, but it can still do a decent tele sound if you roll the volume off a bit.

I own a guitar


It's not like I can play it


But it's a-musing to look at (jeez that's bad...)

I should be able to play it though, I have the capabilities, both musical and physical, to be able to play a guitar. I should.

What is the point of having a guitar lying around if you aren't going to play it?!

Pick it up, and learn some chords at least man!!

I tune it now and then .
Really should learn some cords, yeah. So I can at least sing along while playing. I can sing quite allright. So that would make a nice combination.

I feel you though, I have one and I wish I could play, but learning the thing is a ****ing bore. I hate the F chord, I hate tuning it, I think bar chords are ridiculous, everything seems disjointed.

Grab a base. At least there isn't a B string.
