    Sorry I did not mean to cause offence. To be fair to the salesman he did stress that all their guitars were carefully made, it's just that he compared BFR to an elite custom shop.

    Thank you. The salesman told me that also they were assembled by their finest, specially chosen craftspeople. Do you know if this is true?

    How is the BFR different?

    Apologies if this has been asked before.

    I ask this in the context of being interested in a Bongo Ball family reserve. Although it looks stunning it has quite a premium attached to it's price, and...

    Hula Skirt or catsuit would be great.

    Thank you. I don't think a how to video of how to change strings on an EBMM guitar(using Ernie Ball strings) would cost much more than one of their high end guitars. Even with a professional lighting...
  6. Changing Strings on a silhouette - is this video a good guide

    I don't know if this doubles as a complaints forum - but searching for you tube videos on how to change strings I was surprised that Music Man had not produced it's own how to video on this- given...

    I agree, the neck's vital. But I was asking about vital components that could easily be junked/recycled, if they were blocking overall playability and sound.

  8. For you, what is the killer component part on a bass?

    Looking at replaceable items like tuners, bridges, pick ups or even colour; what is the most important part a guitar for individual members?

    For me, I think it is the bridge. 1. Because it is...

    Thanks for the replies. I was certainly influenced into buying a silo special because Stones used them on tour. I figured if it was good enough for Richards to play in front of 50,000 crowds it was...
  10. Does Keith Richards still use the Silhouette on tour?

    Apologies I am not a Rolling Stones scholar. Does anyone know if Keef still use this on tour as his go to, I remember reading that when it first came out - he something like that Silhouette was a...

    Sorry to hear of your loss. It's maybe not consoling hindsight, but here in the UK there is a substance called 'Smartwater', an invisible forensic liquid that links an item to a registered owner. My...

    I have never sold a guitar to a private non trade buyer.

    But I have bought quite a few guitars from private sellers. And, personally I would never,ever buy a high value guitar from a private...

    Apologies but my question is why you want to return it to it's original condition?,

    Something about not fixing things that you are happy with, comes to mind.

    Maybe you could look at your current collection and consider whether there are any you don't need, i.e. use regularly, to come up with a possible trade in against a cutlass.

    As for whether you...

    I really like that shimmering blue, it can't be easy for a paint shop to get that effect.

    Was music better in the 'old days'?

    Ok it's a very subjective question and I am not sure I know the answer.
