I can totally understand why you wouldn't want a guitar Kirk Hammet made into a signature model!! LOL!!!

Why were you blowing out your guitars? Did you pick up a new endorsement contract and decided to get rid of your Ibanez's?? And if so, got any more left you wanna sell :D

Welcome to the forum Slowhand. :)

In my opinion, pretty much all the forums are full of dumb people. I just believe that most of them don't post anything until someone starts posting something stupid and makes them think it's ok. I'm pretty sure the second we start having flame wars here, we'll be seeing a lot of dumbass posts (hopefully it AIN'T GONNA HAPPEN)

Well one of the great things about being here is, this site is geared more towards upper-end tech stuff, which most n00bs don't really look at. To them, their biggest dilemma for guitar playing is which company's strings to use (DR!) or what picks to use, let alone changing pickups and tonal necessities. So I have a very strong feeling that we will see very few, if any, n00b/flame posts.

That and we have a good admin team ;D

LOL!! I doubt any kid that's trying to figure out which the best strings are for their Squier, Ibanez or LTD is really going to even know what the pickups actually do and how it affects the tone 'cause apparently, all the tone comes from the strings and the picks you use.

Just to prove how dumb some people are.. I was just in a guitar shop today and the sales guy, some high school/college kid, was trying to sell an Ibanez RG to some kid and his mom and told them that this one was better because it's got 5 pickups to give you a lot more sounds. (It's an HSH guitar). After hearing that I was actually temped to step in to correct the guy but it was funnier to stand back and hear him talk about the guitar like he actually knows what he's talking about.

There is always going to be trolls in just about any forum.  Just ignore 'em and you'll be fine.

There are times that I'd admit I'd get into a flaming war with 'em cuz you can only take so much.  You're only letting them win if you engage.

I've heard about how bad the Ultimate Guitar forum is, where the mods aren't neutral.

Have you ever heard a bridge pickup that made a guitar sound like a giant mosquito attack? If you've run into this problem, The Tone ZoneŽ is the solution sell your Boss Metal Zone 2.

I used to be a member on ULTIMATEGUITAR and just couldnt stand it and i got banned because i got so pissed off and told them to f*ck off, and i will tell you why.

You can ask any question or post a new thread and some stupid f*ck will always say
"dude just raper her or repe this and that"
and that just pisses me off.
I I planned to get my membership deleted so i posted a thread on
why do you little fuckers think rape is funny?

A great forum to joing because its mostly adults (im 18 btw) is MYLESPAUL
