i am just not into owning guitars i don’t play out or guitars for art…they are just tools to me to get a sound i have in me head….however, this one is so bootiful, i fell for her…sadly the maple top does not resonate at all, so it is a very flat sound…there is a good reason why soft woods are used on top….
My love is songwriting. I am not a very good guitarist. I’m a good rhythm guitarist but that’s it. I can keep a good beat.
So an expensive, exceptional guitar is wasted on me. Plus, I play in songwriting groups with some good guitarists but all I can hear is the guitar when they play their songs.
Plus, I am cheap. Plus, I will not spend time fiddling with gear. So I am partial to crap gear. Pretty much very simple analog stuff that sorta kinda works, sometimes but takes minimal fiddling.
I also play out a lot, mainly in crap bars to drunks, with crap PAs and sound — so fiddling with anything is pointless. I’m the only one listening anyway. That is the s-s scene in Chi-town.
Saw these guyz in Joliet , IL. They are incredible. There were 10 ppl, they played like it was a stadium.
