    "Tone"

    People who search for it baffle me. It's what comes out, and you like it or you don't.

    portland, or
    i will pretend that i know what im talking about and say
    glassy high end means treble that is not harsh and overly metallic but is softer but still clear...like guitar slides, listen to glass and metal slides on the same guitar and hear the difference

    and if you dont know what softer means, your SO can probably tell you

    This tone monster has a super fast neck and plays itself like buttah, with sustain for days!

    you need thicker skin - real meaning: rationalization for being a bully

    we hear this all the time on the web..
    who the heck wants thick skin?
    Why should I desensitize myself to aggressors?

    bah!

    Very passive-aggressive. I'm going to say something that I know will make you mad, but if you get mad it's YOUR fault.
