Knowledge for its own sake is the best kind by far!
What – you mean the internet is a more effective way to spread lies than a mimeograph machine & a streetcorner??
The foolish & gullible will be with us always – but at least now they have hats, so we know who they are.
Diet Myth® – a third less BS than a regular myth!
Wait, no – that doesn’t work.
Taking an airplane to go get sandwiches?
The nutjobs were right – Elvis, you are alive!
Actually, a laminated neck with a scarf-jointed headstock would be stronger than a single-piece – especially if it’s a neck-through.
But I must insist that my point – that skill is far more important than equipment – holds no matter what. Yes, better equipment will make either party better than themselves on lesser gear – but it will not make the lesser talent surpass the greater, unless they’re actually not much lesser to start with.
Nothing wrong with a Sadowski – but, if (as I assume from the name, never having encountered a Sadowski guitar) you’re talking about a bass, save a little more and get an Alembic; there’s nothing like it.
Alvarez is a Japanese brand imported by St. Louis Music, who have been making excellent-for-the-price-point guitars since, IIRC, the late ‘60s. David Dollack is a professor of, I think, physics in Chicago who builds guitars on the side; I wouldn’t expect you to have heard of him, as I have encountered 2 of his pieces – and 1 was his personal instrument.
My friend’s ax is the finest guitar I have ever played. And I’ve played a Božo, Gibsons from the 1920s to now, Martins from the 1840s to now……
Dr. Dollack makes a nice guitar.
Yep – one our funniest, most cerebral comics and a mindless slapstick buffoon were brothers. The family name certainly suited Albert better…….
Yeah, right – just like my friend who I considered to be the best over-all guitarist in the world & I switched instruments, I suddenly played better on his custom Dollack than he did on my Alvarez.
I can assure you, that didn’t happen. Yes, we each sounded better on the Dollack than we did on the Alvarez – but he played circles around me with his left hand tied behind his back no matter what instrument each was on.
Skill will trump equipment every time.
Why golf? The world is full of mysteries.
You are mistaken. I traveled – weeks at a time – for work for a number of years, and for pleasure for my entire life (including backpacking, where the only 3 concerns are, in order, “Do I need it? What does it weigh? How small can I make it?”), and I can assure you that properly rolled clothes take far less space than either folded or flat. If you don’t find it so, you’re rolling them wrong.
