    People with guitars who don't know what they are doing

    I don't hate many people at all, the only that come close are politicians. Regarding Phillip, there is something about him that irks me, almost a patronisingly educational approach. That said, I've seen about three of his videos and have avoided him since. I wouldn't wish any offence to him, as...

    Needing help putting together a music PC

    My i5 laptop handles mobile recording of drums, 8 mics to individual inputs. I have no doubt it would take more if I had the them! I wouldn't be too worried.

    Needing help putting together a music PC

    Fair enough, it's a valid path. Definitely easy to get a stable DAW computer going now compared to the past when custom spec computers were pretty much essential. Apples were very good for that but it's a level playing field today.

    Custom shop vs vintage

    Some of us are talking Custom Shop as in Fender, Gibson and PRS Custom shop stuff which is available off the peg, others are referring to one off, made to order stuff. Which I don't consider the same at all. For me, Fender/Gibson/PRS Custom Shop - yes I would. Built to order luthier/custom...

    He's already got hardware and software for a PC. Little point going Apple now....

    Needing help putting together a music PC

    I still use an 6 year old Dell laptop, it's a 2.7 gig, dual core/quad thread processor with 8g ram on Win 7. I have no issues recording a live drum kit with 8 mics and overdubbing the rest; ending up with 60+ tracks. The biggest difference I found was replacing the 7200rpm hard drive with a SSD...

    The "WAT'ARE YOO LISSENING TO" topic

    What the fuck? How many songs/genres? I need a lie down.

    The Dorje / Toska / Clockwork Wolf & Co Thread

    I quite like most of it. I have found the CWW&Co quite interesting. I actually think that Rob has a great voice, his fry is excellent and range is stunning. The only bit that holds me back a little is that I find he leans a little to heavily into the technique. He often pronounces words in a way...

    New Rig Day: Much delayed (for reasons of explosions)...

    Sweet rig! And anyone that knows to point the speaker at their head is clearly a total expert.

    The "What pissed you off today" thread

    Mate, massive hugs from me. I'm terrible at talking about my feelings, mostly because I don't understand them. Typically it would be 'I'm feeling tired and hungry. I also feel that another guitar is necessary.' But there's a big difference in not expressing your emotions and saying 'Guys, I'm...

    The "What pissed you off today" thread

    I see where you're coming from and mirror that I'm not about to apologise for things that were said in a different era, that didn't intend on being harmful. That said, by using words as insults there is a direction insinuation that it is something negative, something undesirable and to illicit...

    Everyone's complaining about all of the price increases but....

    Regarding the quality of budget gear, I think that standardisation of trussrods, bridges and nuts has allowed much greater ability to make things work, as has ditching the number of catalogue guitars; there really were lots of Squiers, Marlins and Rockwoods bought from Argos when I was a...

    The "What pissed you off today" thread

    With you 100% :hug:I think I feel quite strongly about this as I'm aware of things I've said in the past. As a youth of the '90s, telling your mates something akin to 'You've had enough booze already? Are you gay?' was entirely normal. But I don't identify at all at being homophobic, I've been...

    The "What pissed you off today" thread

    I'm very wary of labelling lower level matters as racism, sexism or hate etc. as i think it can be counterproductive. Many people when challenged that their behaviour is racist will respond with something like 'I can't be racist, my best friend is black' or similar. And from that point on, their...

    The "What pissed you off today" thread

    People are just arseholes. It's a common trait for people to make fun of others and some people just fail to see that they're being unpleasant. Through choice, I haven't eaten meat in 16 years and last year had to give up gluten. I know its terribly fashionable to not eat gluten or be a vegan...

    The "What pissed you off today" thread

    I just quoted what is on their website mate. I have no doubt that you'll be happy with the cab, I'm not criticising the product just their abhorrent marketing! (Sorry, couldn't resist ;))

    Boult guitars

    It's something that conflicts in me and I'm a hypocrite. I got incredibly lucky and ended up with something brilliant but I paid £600 for the guitar and about £350 modding it. For that, i could have bought a new USA S2 model which needed no mods. I could actually have got a used one for about...

    Boult guitars

    I've been reading a series of articles in Guitarist Magazine when Dave Burrluck has been modding a Tokai Love Rock, trying to bring it closer to the sound and feel of a top level singlecut, using a Knaggs Kenai as the point of reference. Even with the same pickups and controls, upgraded nut...
