    Post The Well LXXXXI: Fall to your knees... and bow to the refinishing lord.

    ConvoysToNothingness told me that it was my turn to do this.

    Shall we begin?

    How do you find the Spring weather in Michigan?

    Who are your favorite band?

    Coffee or tea?

    Beer or whiskey?

    Which one of those guitars is your favorite?

    Spring weather in SE Michigan is all over the place. Most years we get one last snow in the beginning of April, this year we got skipped, it was 80 degrees instead. Last week we had a few days of it barely hitting the 50s, we're at mid-upper 80s this week. I stay inside most of the time anyway.

    Anthrax, although that could change soon. I've been a fan since 88, but liked John Bush's vocals better. The way they kept screwing him over was criminal. The next album has to be so f-ing good to renew themselves, and I doubt they have it in them. It's like they used all the good riffs on the S.O.D. projects, and of course, we can kiss them goodbye as well because of vocalist issues.

    Tea. Can't stand coffee.

    Beer. Can't stand whiskey.

    My favorite guitar is the one that is in my hands at the time. I could probably rate a top 5 out of them all, but that could change as I keep adding new ones. I really like the Steve Morse bridge in the white Telecaster, the Andy Timmons bridge in the Red Strat, the D-Sonic in the Purple Strat... Oddly enough, I like the pickups, but not the endorsee players. I also like the EMG 81 and SD Blackout Metal equipped Strats. The next one will probably get an EMG 85.

    Do you plan on keeping every guitar that you build?

    Would you rather have one near-perfect, custom built, anything goes, money is no object guitar or do you enjoy the army of home brew axes you have accumulated?

    Is it gooey in a kangaroo pouch?

    The only time I used the tone (and volume controls) was to make sure that they were turned all the way up. When I found out that removing them was like making them turned up to 11 permanently, I had to go for it.

    Probably. I am planning on moving though across the country, so it may be a pain to move them all. I might sell them, and then rebuild them after I move.

    Would you rather have one near-perfect, custom built, anything goes, money is no object guitar or do you enjoy the army of home brew axes you have accumulated?
    I think everyone knows the answer to this one. I have yet to find a guitar that's the be all, end all guitar. I'd rather have a bunch of 95% there guitars rather than trying to find the one guitar that does everything. I've been messing around with guitars since I was 14, and it's much easier to unplug one and plug another one in when you want something different.

    Is it gooey in a kangaroo pouch?
    From what I've seen in cartoons, yes.

    Correct on the Metallica one.

    Where's the Exciter reference?

    Keeps the people that work in the cotton swab industry employed. No better tool for removal in my mind.

    Ahh. Not really a Judas Priest fan, only heard the original once, heard the SYL cover a few times, but usually skipped that track.

    No, the title was all Metallica. The other reference was in the text of the first post. It's a little more subtle.

    Convoys to Nothingness is an Enslaved song? No idea, I thought of WASP at first, but I don't really know why.

    Here's my question: Why aren't you a Priest fan? Don't you know how awesome they are? Listen to the Sad Wings of Destiny album, you know you want to.

    Here's another: Do you think you'll ever start to outgrow your guitars? (I ask because I've outgrown Vs and Rhoads type guitars in favour of less overtly "metal" ones).

    Nope, it's more subtle than that.

    I don't really like Halford's voice. One of the reasons I prefer John Bush to Joey Belladonna. It's why I never really cared for Overkill, and can only take Iron Maiden in small doses.. and I absolutely despise King Diamond. I just prefer deeper sounding vocalists.

    Here's another: Do you think you'll ever start to outgrow your guitars? (I ask because I've outgrown Vs and Rhoads type guitars in favour of less overtly "metal" ones).
    I used to play only BC Rich guitars. I still have a Virgin, Warlock, and an Avenge/SoB. I've found that I prefer comfort over looks these days.. so I leave the eye appeal to the colors instead of the pointy-ness.

    But your guitars aren't different. They're all the same. That is why we all think you are a crazy person.

    But I digress; I don't actually have a problem with it, and it wouldn't matter a lick if I did, so here's another honest question:

    What in the HELL do you find NOT to like about Andy Timmons?????

    When I first saw the pickup on Dimarzio's webpage, I had to look him up to see who he was.

    Yeah, I didn't care for his band back when I was 11 either. Great pickup though.

    I'm the guy that can hear people across the street talking from inside my house with the doors and windows shut.. I can hear the UPS truck down the street, knowing that I'll have a delivery soon. I can hear pick noise on most professionally recorded albums.. and I can hear the differences between the pickups.

    Who's death affected you more? Dimebag or Dio?

    Top ten forum members you'd have a pizza with?

    Favorite metal bands?

    Favorite Dimarzio pickup by output (low, medium, High) and why?

    Favorite SD pickup by output (low, medium, High) and why?
