    Hm, never been there, I would have thought it would be more active than that.
     
  5. I tried going there because a good amount of guitarist sites are full of the guys we complain about. No traffic there. There's a guitar thread in Misc that gets 20x the traffic of Talk Guitar.

    yeah, it used to be advertised on the front page of TB somewhere. Haven't seen it since the change.

    Why don't the just migrate over there? I would much rather have an entire forum than a single thread.

    just posted a link to it over on the guitar thread in misc. Would love to have a second TB type forum to go to, just gotta advertise it to get it populated.
     
  10. I visit TalkGuitar from time to time, but rarely see any posts that I could comment on. The Guitar thread in TalkBass seems to get more visits. :p

    Maybe it's the TB-philosophy of no ugly instruments and respect to other musicians. I've observed that most TB members are down-to-earth and seem to check any egos before posting. Many (not all) guitarists seem to present themselves in a peacock-like ego.

    Yeah, I agree. But imagine a guitar forum populated with people with the TB mindset, which I think the guitarist here share. So if most of the guitarist populated that site, It would be a great forum.

    And what exactly is an Ugly instrument?
     
  13. Best of both worlds.
     
  14. No such thing as an ugly instrument. Appearance is in the eye of the beholder.

    For my gui**** leanings I usually go to the brand specific sites... My Les Paul dot com was one such place. They were FAR to cliquey and over all a pretty douchey bunch. Needless to say I didn't hang around there long. That was years ago and they may have improved for all I know. I'm not willing to go and check though.
