...The preferences themselves are enough, they don't need anything more, just their experience that says Hey, I like it like This...

Its true you can go just play your guitar, however when your not playing you may have questions like the OP? And this may be the first time you thought of any of this since 1977 however thats not true with others obviously.

Whats the point just play and dont worry, everyone gets that but the fact remains some simply have questions that actually have answers.

Anybody that is thinking about that stuff whilst ballz deep in some good old arena rock should take up golf or something.

The operative words being "whilst ballz deep", in whatever kind of music pretty much nonsequitur imho, your not typing and talking whilst balls deeps in anything, in anything at the moment but another attempted point of what? Perhaps you should pay no attention as you have and suggest and when your not playing too.

That's true. I'd welcome an answer or opinion from someone I know has experience. But, after all, we're just usernames on an internet forum and we may or may not know what we're talking about. Maybe we don't even really play. Opinions and answers on a forum are sometimes helpful until people have differing opinions and answers. That's when I'd recommend taking the guitar to someone who works on them for a living and get their opinion and find out the facts. People on the internet certainly don't know who I am or if I can even play.

I think the original poster's question was answered though and this thread isn't being very useful any more if people are going to argue (or whatever you call it) over preferences and opinions which may or may not be based on experience and which may or may not be based on fact. I know how I like my guitars and I'd put them up against any other in the world.

Well I wasn't talking to you Einstein, perhaps it is you that should pay less attention.

Doesnt matter who you are talking to I'm talking clearly to you, politely and directly, and yes I noticed the name calling and the indirect passive aggressive behavior I guess since you have nothing else to contribute or discuss thats the expert distinction where you now become more direct to what end? Please dont call me anything other than whats desired. Its childish.

True I agree 100%.

Wow, so after all the insane back and forth between some members on this thread I came to the conclusion that my guitar is just fine, and some of you guys take this way too seriously! Thanks to those like RCT that gave some helpful and real-world info. Much appreciated!

Sorry that no one made any popcorn for you in the midst of the intermission, aka all the other stuff. Hope all is well with your guitar and that you get many years of playing out of it. [thumbup]

Yep, pretty much came to the conclusion that all of these preferences and opinions are just that...preferences and opinions and there's nothing wrong with the guitar fro a manufacturing/ fit and finish perspective. Some like things one way, others seem to have VERY strong opinions about what they hypothesize is the right way and is the ONLY right way with no real proof to substantiate it, even though they seem very passionate that their way is the only way. Personally, I'll side with those who say I've been doing it this way for 30 years and have had no ill-effects. That works for me. Simple and to the point!

Good deal.

And to be fair, I prolly did come on a little strong to Mr. Golden in front of everyone in the room, so I'll apologize for coming on too strong, Mr. Golden, in front of everyone in the room. It's only guitars, no need to go gettin all jiggy and such.

Oh I didnt expect an apology rct, but a thank you I suppose is in order, so Thank You, Mr is not required, I see you can also be quite a charming individual when you want to be..


Nevertheless imo the thread very quickly addressed the often asked questions with the set neck angle and other related issues inherent to the history of it, thats a good thing. Same questions usually comes up quite naturally and in a short read anyone can read further, add, elaborate, ask questions, whatever, just go play. I look forward to simply adding the thread when the same question comes up in relation to the same point. Imo it simply places a good deal of information to the often asked and rightly so questions and inquiry into perceived issues in a short read. All good, have a great day and thanks again!

as a spectator, and one who considers RCT a pal, and btw I "get" his take on things and usually find that I agree with him, I found this a very entertaining read! I'm glad it ended amicably, we're all more or less, slices off the same loaf of bread here.
