  1. Some rockstars do it because they have the emotional control of a 2 year old.

    I wouldn’t, unless there is a specific issue you are trying to cure other than appearance. JMO, but the less you remove the better. YMMV.

    I'm going to leave it unless somethings not working as you all have said.

    I'm just oiling the fretboard now and installing my cobalts....

  5. One time I saw Iron Maiden a bunch of years ago at Madison Square Garden they lost power on stage. The band took out a soccer ball and started kicking around with each other until the power was fixed.

    Agreed. The audience is happy if it sounds good, and a happy guitarist always sounds better. So if they want a guitar with a different feel or sound, tuning, or whatever to be happy, then it all works.

    Me? I'm happy with a THUNDERBIRD.

  13. Yeah, the rule of time-outs is 1 minute for each year of age. He's going to be sitting in a corner being ignored for nearly an hour.


    Thunderbird.
     
  14. There are two types of guitar player:

    Krang krang - AC/DC, etc. - Les Paul, SG etc.
    Dweedly dweedly - Richie Blackmore, Robin Trower. Strat, Tele etc.

    :laugh:

  15. I see Hetfield has adopted the Rammstein disappearing mic stand.

    My YBA200 is 19kg, which makes it a featherweight compared to others of a similar power rating.

    There's a used one on Reverb(not mine)for $500.
     
  17. Even looks similar to Richard Kruspe's mic!

    My Mesa Strategy weighs 22kg (49lbs)... 465 Watts of tube power. The benefits of metal go beyond just the music! :roflmao:

    It is also a fitness tool or torture device, depending on your point of view.

    and all done.

    The cobalt slinky flats work very well on this bass. Probably the best fit yet for my stable.

  21. I use basses tuned in E, D, & C# in my heavy band. It can get confusing when I’m in D tuning across the board, but the guitarist only has his E dropped to Do_O
