    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.

    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.

    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.
