    started a topic you know guys... I just have to say it.

    you know guys... I just have to say it.

    Is Gibson (after Salvation and Eggnog) not the best thing to ever happen to humanity (also, perhaps, after the double-kick)?

    lol I just got a new J-185 CE Rosewood and the thing is the most incredible guitar I have ever played. I used to believe that with Gibson, you pay for hype and a shiny name on the headstock, but I am seriously blown away by this guitar. I also own a Gibson Flying V, and while I have played nicer guitars, I am still quite in love with it. Any other Gibson enthusiasts out there?

    Get up to the Citation X and things get much more complicated. Oh, but the SOUND! To die for, really.
    I'm more of an Avro Arrow kinda guy. Much more bang for your CAD buck

    I think that is a recipe for success. I you have multipal guitars it is better to have each with different sounds and playing different parts. Two identical guitars that are playing the same parts have a tendancy to cancel each other.

    Naw, I don't take it personally because like I said, I don't care who plays what unless it sounds absurdly cheap on my team Selfish, maybe.

    I just got confused is all.

    I have heard rumor of that but I heard that they are too loud for church volumes. Maybe get a really big hot plate?

    You might be taking it personally because my post followed yours, though it was not directed at you, just in general why we have to call one brand cheap as opposed to saying "I prefer this or that." not a big deal, just voicing my opinion that I think its more beneficial to discuss what we like and why rather than dis what we don't like.

    In terms of Aircraft, I have little experience so I'd better stay out of that conversation, I'm impressed that you fly tho.

    Humor is sometimes weird and I hardly take anything on the internet seriously.

    BTW how is the action on those Cessnas. I haven't played one yet.

    LOL, that's my point Edwin, that's how silly it gets sometimes.

    I personally think that some people who play Teles look cheap. And I'm serious.
