So you missed the part about the Silvertones?
I LOVE those old things, but they are STILL
cheesy assed guitars....
Ever try and do some fine bridge adjustment on
one of those things?
Ever try to raise ONE string to get rid of a fret
Did you see the phrase "By todays tech standards"?
Lets go on to the part where I mentioned
replacing the tuners....not just on Silvertones
I hate vintage tuners that bind....ESPECIALLY the
Silvertone tuners, although Fender
tuners,depending on the model, can be just as bad.
You try to downtune, you turn the tuner, it goes
click,click,click, then it finally gives and the
string drops down like 3 steps and you have to
tune it UP again, hopefully close, otherwise you
start the process all over again.
Yes lube helps, but on friction tuners it can
also mean a big headache.
Vintage Fenders are WAY overpriced anyway.
(Don't get me wrong, I love the sound of 'em!)
This is caused by "investors" who don't PLAY the
friggin' things, just stick them in a vault
For them,it's not about the guitar, it's not
about music, it's about MONEY.
Kinda like what the Yuppie market did for Harley
Yeah the new HD chrome and neon boutique look is
for BIKERS!?!?!More like CEO's who couldn't bear
to get a drop of oil on their Armani's, but, I'm
Yes, reread my post, especially the part
about "BY TODAYS TECH STANDARDS"
I NEVER said I didn't love 'em.
You made that part up on your own.
