Could a Tonerite change your least fav guitar to your most fav guitar?

Recommended Posts

Haha! I just wanted to get y'all going! [flapper]

 

 

(credit due to Passthej45 for this little gem of an idea!)

Ok..sure, if I was to put a toneright on my LEAST favorite guitar, I am certain I would get some improvement. But the problem is when I take it off and play it, I am right back to the same crap again.

 

But...then again, that describes my slide playing.

 

What is REALLY needed is a devise that doesn't attached to the guitar to make it sound better, but one that we could attach to us to make US sound better.

 

And, on a brighter note, there are such things.

 

FRIED CHICKEN

PIE

THE BLUES BROTHERS MOVIE.

 

The SOUND OF HAPPY PEOPLE,

and GOD.

I like your list (well, except for the chicken part). I suppose a person could attach a Tonerite to themselves, but the results of that test might be better discussed on another type of forum [biggrin]

GK , I never knew you had it in you(sorry, sorry , sorry, inappropriate....I mean you brought it up..SORRY, SORRY....I'll stop NOW) [unsure]

btw I've heard that Euroaussie likes fried chicken but only if he can use a J165 or J185 as a plate to eat it on!

Ok, peace brothers & sisters, found a J-185 that sounds divine ... ok, its rosewood but still a J-185. Great tone, and they always looked great.

Isn't a tonerite kind of like a vibrator for your guitar. You are supposed to let them vibrate your strings to simulate playing them and it kind of opens up the grain a little for better sound?

 

Will that really work?

Ha, ha .... yes something like that. But it all depends what you do with it ..

I feel like ToneRite did great things for my J-185. It was always a little tight and has become a beast. When I bought the TR I had the J-185 in mind. I love the sound of my other guitars so I haven't used it on any of them for more than 72 hours, the J-185 was left for a week on low.

Anyone own one that they rent out? Seems like we should have a co-op or something so we could all share one as you don't need to use them al of the time.

Wait . . . . . .

 

 

Holy smokes.

 

 

It's a major conversion. B)

Perhaps a divine intervention can do that, however I'd suggest to send a tonerite and a 185 to EA and see what happens.

Yes - it really does work!

 

I wear the Tonerite under my hat.

 

I have it set on low when I play in standard tuning and I get a very nice vibrato.

 

But - when I play slide guitar I likes to have it flat sticks and it gives me the sh-sh-sh-shakes real good.

 

And all my guitars have improved at the same time, and all of my dreams have come true after sending $100 to that radio station in California.

P.S. You can connect it to the toner cartridge in your printer to improve the colour of your prints.

Ya I'd be down to rent it $10 a month like Netflix!

No, it's a minor inversion. That looks like a slightly odd-shaped, short-scale SWD, which is arguably what it is. Love the 185 body, don't love the cutaway. Sounds mighty fine, though, but does it sound like a 185?
