Prs guitars always have insane tops, although I'm pretty sure the made in Asia models just have a veneer. I used to have a mccarty double cut knockoff made by Cort in the early 00's with all the prs internals from a junked husk. That was an amazing guitar and I've always wanted a real mccarty ever since.

I put the stock pickups back in my slash standard and it sounds so damn good. Way better sound than the seymour duncans. I don't think i want to sell it now haha.

Having both of my les pauls in the shop at the same time has taught me that I am 100% a les paul player. My strat is so fucking perfect but when it was the only guitar I had to play (other than my acoustic), I just had no motivation to pick it up for hours at a time.

As long as I never owned a Tele...my two T-style guitars are pretty much all I pick up anymore.

Def veneer. We donít get fat slabs of 5a flamed maple at this price point. I started thinking ďgee, I sure hope it isnít plywood underneathĒ then I thought ďwho cares! I love this thing!!Ē.

I guess Iím a little weird re the fav instrument thing. I love em all. I keep an 8, 2 7ís(trem and hard tail), 2 6ís, and a bass within arms reach at all times. Iíd keep more out but I just donít have the space. And Iím constantly rotating through my entire collection based on my needs and/or whims. I love guitars. Period.

Well, except for wacky key sig dudes variax. That thing feels and sounds like ass...

I just accidentally stumbled on to the fact my daw will make excellent recordings right off YT. Derp...

I needed a jazz swing @ 100bpm and didnít feel like digging out the beatbuddy so I just ytíd it. While I was recording the piece I wanted to record I noticed my daw was recording both.

I haz teh tech ineptz, but my G13 E7add9 transition is crisp af.

YouTube backing tracks are awesome. Yesterday I met a few of my girlfriend's friends and we were jamming, and it was all a little incoherent (having an electric cello, electric violin, wurlitzer and me on the guitar), but I put on this Portishead backing track through the PA and we were jamming hard af. It sounded so damn good haha. Yt backing tracks are frickin awesome for noodling

Back in the late 80’s early 90’s when I was performing in bars/house parties etc, I considered noodling a bad word and a waste of time. I had 2-3 new covers per week to learn and about 60 setlist covers that could always use some polishing. No time for that noodling shit man, I’m a busy musician!

But when I picked up the guitar again in 2018, after following the same “covers only” trajectory for a few months, I found that I had grown and wanted to have my own musical voice. That’s when I discovered the beauty and utility of noodling/improv. I fit improv into my work every single day. Over drones, over progressions, over backing tracks, or just freestyle.

It’s helped me immensely.
