an acquired taste some may never acquire
Jan 30th, 2018 01:38 PM   Edit   Profile  

I was looking at a guitar auction posted by a Japanese seller. Now, I admit: I speak his language even more poorly than he speaks mine, but this is still funny.

"The bridge part of the body top has a trace of fixation by the adhesive, but now it is possible to move according to the usual specifications. There is pain damage, but there is no effect on the xylem.

Rod ... There is plenty of room left and right.

Fret ... Overall the remaining amount is 70% ~ 80%. Although there are some reductions, you can play comfortably without clogging sounds or bubbling at string heights of 1.7 mm - 2.2 mm on 12 F."

I know I just HATE when my frets clog and bubble on me...

Yeah well it happens, we just have to learn to work through it. I'm sure even Jimi and SRV had some clog and bubble issues.

The pain damage though, that's the hard one to overcome. Whether or not our xylem ever gets effected still remains to be seen.
