  1. I suspect our readings of Animal Farm might differ, too, and that's just fine. No comment on the hens.... I foolishly took the bait, I admit it, but if you look at the first comments that yanked this thread out of its original path it was the same old comments that are made every time Springsteen is mentioned in any thread in any context. I should have just let them go, I know that.
  2. Writes the guy whose broad-minded light-hearted contribution to the discussion was that musicians should just "SHUT UP AND SING"... It's also "just life" that some musicians and other entertainers talk about politics, or even sing about them. While some just sing about themes that grate on some people as being from an "implicitly political" angle. I don't see that anyone commenting on this thread from any perspective has been "running and hiding" or finds it impossible to imagine that not everyone agrees with them. Just the opposite, I'd say. Given the the fact this thread start
  3. Okay, to return closer to the original post: double pick guards: some people love the way they look, some hate it; some think they ruin tone/sound, some don't worry about it (or at least not apart from each specific guitar). But aside from lefties (guitarists, not political parties) who in a world of so many guitars for right-handers might be happy to see an easy conversion come their way, does anyone actually find the double pick guard useful? Do you have a double pick guard guitar that's been protected from marks you make on your other guitars? Or do you have a guitar that you wi
  4. Honestly, I wasn't thinking specifically of your post when I wrote that part, though because I started off quoting your post I'd see how you'd think that. I'm sorry about that. The acid reflux was more generally about the comments sections of, say Youtube, and newspapers, where people just let 'em rip (even if the connection to the subject is tenuous). Didn't actually see much bile in your comment, and the only question I'd have had about it specifically was when did Babs, the cast of Hamilton and Pence start playing Gibsons? If that were true, whatever else one might say about them at least t
  5. Luckily for you there are some countries in the world where this "policy" of yours is actually law--and there's generally no line for citizenship to them if you'd like to apply. Unluckily for the rest of us, a dismaying number of Western politicians are starting to express admiration for such blatantly authoritarian, anti-democracy regimes. All of us have very selective memories about what we consider offensive statements by performers. As a lurker here for years I've noticed that a mention of someone like Springsteen is sure to evoke indignant responses from a predictable group
  6. Totally agree with your description of the guitar, I've had one since last spring--which means that I also have some serious pick guard placement envy. And if you like its sound now, of course just wait till you play it more; it just keeps getting better. Also agree that the case is perfect for it: solidly made and worth getting instead of some other option. Congrats.
