15 November 2012 - 06:32 PMI find this a fascinating idea. I'd like to be able to research it empirically myself. While most of the guitar players I know lean to the idea that a guitar can have mojo, they disagree as to what that mojo really is.
While I like the idea of some kind of mystical force that can live in our guitars I believe that the mojo actually comes from what we project onto and into the guitar through our playing and how we feel about the guitar and how we pour ourselves through it in our attempt to communicate with it.
However, that said . . . I used to be an investigator with a Fortune 500 company. What I know from my personal empiracal study is that during a full moon we caught, on average, more people up to no good (stealing and such). Not only did we note a definite rise in numbers of occurrences during a full moon, the perps were usually much more aggressive or out of the ordinary. as in fuitbat loony.
So . . . there is something to be said about how the moon acts upon us (and possibly trees). We can look at it this way, if the moon has the power to control the tides who is to say it doesn't affect us.
Great thread! thanks for it!

24 September 2012 - 08:10 AMI'm in a band with two other guitar players, 1 a gibson LP, the other an American Strat (one of their select models). I bought a Custom PRS SE in July and we were all amazed at the sound, playability, versatility. It is the only guitar I play on stage now. The other two guys are ALWAYS commenting on how great the PRS sounds.
We play stuff from 80s style power ballads to TransSiberian Orchestra. I play a LOT of blues on the thing, as well.
Great, Great, Great guitar.
11 September 2012 - 10:50 AMWow, great minds think alike! Here is my old one:
It was a GREAT guitar! The only reason I got rid of it was a needed a single-coil in my arsenal, and something had to go. I still miss it!
Wouldn't it be something if I had your old guitar. Small world. Found this one in a guitar shop run by an old hippie. The shop was about the size of my bedroom. Small and packed full of crap. This was the one guitar worth anything.
Holy sh*t, Rocketman...That guitar is absolutely beautiful!
