    Maybe some of these topics should be stickied - anyone agree?

    - Squier Vintage Modified basses - any good?
    - Fender MIA vs MIJ vs. MIM
    - anything else versus Fender MIA
    - SX versus Squier
    - Is Peavey any good??
    - what is *** worth? (guilty!)

    There are many repeated new posts. Maybe some stickied instructions for the search feature?

  2. -lined fretless vs. unlined
    -4 string vs. 5+
    -boutique vs. cheapo
    -Fender vs. other Fenders
    -Fender vs. all other brands and why Fender is better/worse
    -Warwick=awesome vs. Warwick=poop
    -rounds vs. flats
    -does a red Stingray sound better than a blue Stingray
    -which scale length is superior
    -which basses have a good low B
    -P vs J bass
    -between these unrelated basses, which do I pick
    -what is the best bass

    I think I hit a big chunk and I'm a relative n00b to TB.

    It's just a lack of common sense, unfortunately.
  6. Ahhh, forgot the "found the coolest bass in the world, now I gotta sell it to get the coolest bass in the world (repeat as needed)" threads.

    -why I'm right and you're wrong
    -I don't care who you are, Wish basses are uglier than sin
    -what a sexy bass....followed by a few dudes saying how ugly they think it is.
    -should I use a hatchet or a chainsaw to mod my bass?

    Come on, there should be a few more sarcastic guys like me out there..........:help:

    *disclaimer- I've changed the pickguard and put a badass bridge on my bass*

    Also- Show Your *****(insert brand, color,wood type, multi-string)
    4 string vs. 5 string
    What is "growl"
    SX vs. Alembic
    Any thread with "Guitar Center" in it
    I Love Fender!
    I Hate Fender!

  9. And the inevitable answer.....the tort, of course, stoopid.

    The best answer I ever saw on one of those threads, I can't remember when or where, it went something like .....'you guys, really, you'd put a tort on a turd'

    Well it made me laugh. Some guys' obsession with tort pickguards is laughable. As you can guess, I'm not a fan, but not against them. Only very few times have I seen a tort guard being suitable over anything else.

  10. -what would a bass with this wood config sound like? ok, how about this one? and this one? who am I kidding, I'm too afraid to order this bass for fear it won't sound perfect....
    -I want a configuration that doesn't exist, can someone build it for me for less than $1,000?
    -wood matters
    -wood doesn't matter
    -can I play a ________ in a _______ band?
    -best bass and strings to tune to z flat for my metal band?
    -how come my cheapo bass is falling apart?

    I was going to suggest some other stuff, but I thought better of it. Making all these sticky threads means a moderator has to do some work. Why make them?

    You know all these topics are going to pop up once a day or week anyway. That's just as good as a sticky thread that few people will read anyway.

    I'm not the biggest fan of tort either... but it can work well and this has to be the best example of tort I've ever seen

    wicked pic! Even JPJ's would still look better IMHO without a pickguard at all, and let the sunburst show through!

    Where was that pic taken? Looks like a house party!

    Hey man! I play metal and I rarely ever go below DADG!
  18. I'm glad someone enjoys my sarcasm and goofy sense of humor. Perhaps the moderators need to change my title to Official Sarcastic Turd!
  19. No worries, sooner or later every possible TB user will be offended by something I say. :p

    There is already a sticky with some of those links in it--the "Newbie Links" thread. If any of you knows of a particular thread that isn't listed in that one that should be, send me the link via PM and I'll post it in that thread. I am not going to spend that much time looking for all those threads to post.

    But, keep in mind, it's not going to stop the repetitive threads from being posted. First, people have to actually check out the stickied thread, which it seems many don't. And to stick each individual link would leave us with the first 2 pages of this forum nothing but stickies.
