M. Ted (inactive) Does the guitar make the difference? (91* d) RE: Does the guitar make the difference? 23 Oct 00


Didn't say whether I liked them or not--when I was in acquistion mode, I certain tried them, but didn't feel the urge-What I did say was that I am getting really tired of seeing what strikes me as commercial sounding plugs--such as the following "Larrivee has a wider, less radiused neck standard. As a finger-style player I find myself making far fewer extraneous left-hand mutes on a Larrivee."

It is a perfectly crafted "Feature/benefit" statement of like you'd see in the better guitar advertisements--As a general rule, people don't write like that in discussion threads--

I am somewhat paranoid, I know, but I fear the day that our Mudcat is awash with little plugs like "I particularly enjoy playing :Wild Mountain Thyme on my "Hoot Gibson Commemorative Clavinet" which comes, standard, with an embossed Faux-Cordura gig-bag, and 180 Hours of AOL"--
