I spend more than half my time on amp, guitar and pickup forums. I listen to countless hours of Youtube clips and read hundreds manufactures and harmony Central reviews. I argue with people about gear and even get into heated discussions and thrown off websites.
I can tell you pretty much anything from A to Z about any type of gear by now.
Ive gone through 20 bodies and necks, 10 different Maps and about as many Fenders and Gibsons. I have a revolving door for speakers. Speakers are a whole nother field and I have probably read and listened to over a hundred hours of speaker clips and specds and reviews. Nothing is insignigicant..tuners, pots, nuts..I can spout out jargon on each and every one of them.
I have in my memory bank 1000 questions and answers about pedals, and aoptehr 1000 video clips and another 1000 Harmony Central reviews on at least 100 of them.Truth is , I'm so wrapped up in all this I barely ever play.
But I'm a perfectionist. I have what I beleive are the best cabinets, the best pedals, the speakers for the cabinets, the best pickups for the guitars, the best tonewoods , setups, tuners, nuts, strings etc etc, ad infinitum.
What do you think about all this?
