I'm installing my own pickup system on my new custom built guitar to save $50. Is it okay to ground the welder to the end pin?

My wife made me sell a guitar.

Should I get a new one?































No. Just divorce her.

I absolutely love this guitar. It’s been my dream guitar since I was a little lad. It plays fantastic (like butter actually), sounds likes angels making love, it’s setup perfectly, has every appointment I could ever want, and is sheer joy to play. The neck profile is awesome, and the neck is so comfortable.

But...it’s not working out for me as I can’t get used to the neck profile, and really miss the tone of my old “HOG” guitar. It was super playable and had a fantastic setup. Not to mention a great neck profile.

Should I sell it? What are your thoughts?

If interested I’m putting this beauty up for sale for a mere $14,500.

Ground Shipping at your expense of course. Insurance extra. Add $400 more for the premium case.

Save tens of dollars from new with this “lifer” added to your stable.

Because we're going to change the title of the thread to "The Most Important Questions Asked in the Past Year" and see if anyone notices the difference.

Would lessons really help me to play better? Or, should I just practice more?

So glad you asked about this as I did that with mixed results. My Snark went crazy afterwards, neither my yoke-style or spring-style capo work anymore now, and all the tone it produces now sounds like it is coming from my attic. I took it to my tech and he said it would cost $2,100 just to peer inside the hole with a flashlight. Do you think that I should risk it or just sell the guitar to someone with an earwax build-up problem?

Thanks in advance as I knew this would be the place to get some expert opinions.

Best,
Jayne

Is Taylor v-class bracing better than traditional x-bracing?

The neck of my Voyage Air that I bought on Reverb snaps in half at the neck joint. Should I demand a refund from a seller and have him cover shipping both ways?
