  1. One question on the quietness of the StageRight and also Blues Jr. Do they produce any hiss or unwanted noises?
  2. You're obviously not a bottom of the line player, learning a classical song "by ear" is no easy feat. Nice guitar!
  3. Uncle Fester, you will be delighted by this "contraption". And it takes only 3 minutes to get used to it. (sadly not for electric guitars) I had to look-up Pointdexter glasses. And I learned a lesson - looks like they do not come with a nose and moustache. ๐Ÿ˜„
  4. Ergoplay is very customizable (height and also both slant axes), though usable only on classical and dreadnaught. Foot-stool usage creates back pain, but also numbs the left leg in prolonged sessions. With Ergoplay (or similar), playing for like 4 hours straight leaves NO physical problems. All one has to do is play the guitar. Pure joy! ๐Ÿค  Highly recommended for guitar players of all sizes & all ages.
  5. I can confirm, there's a huge difference for the better!
  6. I've been using a similar item - for classical guitar - for some years now. Will never use a foot-stool again. Like night and day, as they say! EDIT: I use this "Ergoplay", which also has vacuum sucker cups and stays on the guitar when you play and when you don't. https://www.amazon.com/ErgoPlay-Trรถster-Support-Right-Handed-Players/dp/B00AW4TPJQ/ref=sr_1_2?dchild=1&keywords=ergoplay&qid=1595876993&sr=8-2
  7. First contact was thru this song ... all the classic ones came later. Peter Green, R.I.P.
  8. In "Down to Earth" (1979) and later - in some solos there is clear evidence of 2nd or 4th position selector being used. I think so, just because the way it sounds there. Thanx to you and @RCT on the Tele 3-saddle intonation education. There will also be ES-335 questions later this year (hopefully!).
  9. One question on the 3-saddle Tele - does it intonate properly? (I have never owned one, but heard some ugly stories...)
  10. Haha, @RCT, fantastic! ๐Ÿ˜Ž
  11. I'd never buy, rent, borrow or steal a 3-bucker LP or clone. But it's just my point of view, I'm not going to war over that, Sergeant :]
  12. Yeah, Frampton really did have 3 on an LP. My view is, only Strats are allowed 3 - and NOT h'buckers at that!
  13. Not delighted about that third pickup either, all due respect to Peter Frampton. I don't wanta get exiled from this forum, but 3 pickups belong on a Strat - and only on a Strat.
  14. Lately wireless transmitters/receivers are available, as technology gets better. But as always, beware of the cheap stuff. The most important factor to watch when buying is LATENCY, measured in milli-seconds (thousandths of a second). The greater this number, the more time it takes for the signal you play to be heard on the amp side. This delay is inherent to the functioning of the electronics chips in the units, not the distance to the amp. The Line6 G10 are OK with a declared delay of 2.9 milli-seconds, more expensive models have this number at 1.5 milli-seconds, which is even better. There are makers of cheaper models on the market, with a delay of like 12 milliseconds, which in my view is too much. One might sometimes notice a slight delay when playing, which can be annoying. So, when buying, always watch for LATENCY in the specifications - SMALLER IS BETTER.
