Why Are You Here?

There was a post on mylespaul asking what people thought of the schecter Solo ii custom, which many people rave about, which is unambiguously les-paul-like, and which is an objectively beautiful guitar (though I thought its aesthetic was a little too vampire for my liking). Anyway, the unanimous forum opinion was that it should either be thrown in the trash, or set on fire.

Whereas here, somebody *tried* to start a flame war, and the thread ended up filled with carrot recipes.

The choice was pretty easy.

Hung and sniffed around the usual LP and Strat forums. The crowd could be obnoxiously defensive on what seemed a life style choice instead of a simple luxury product, also way too many kiddies. Banned from both the Epiphone and Gibson forums for being mildly critical of their products(and perhaps Henry J in passing).

I like it here. Weather is good, and they walk around me in a wide berth.

I got the itch to get a Setzer Smoke. I came here for thoughtful discourse about the merits of the instrument. Plus I’d already made up my mind I was gonna do it and I had a feeling y’all would give me a gentle nudge to fulfill my dream. After a full body check into the boards (a bit more than a nudge), I got the Smoke and haven’t put it down since.
