Guitar Fetish is having a huge sale this weekend.

Post by robroe » Fri Feb 14, 2020 6:14 am

10% coupon on everything site wide
plus another stacked 15% coupon on clearance stuff...so like 25% off clearance.

i just bought a blemished seafoam green bound telecaster body for 37 bucks. the blemish reason is that the binding is yellowing. WHICH IS RAD ANYWAYS.

Seems like they are always claiming it is a blowout sale.

I grabbed a bound burst one that had a glue stain and the neck pocket was 2mm larger than normal. When I use allparts necks I feel like I end up sanding that much anyways.... lol

Debated getting a neck and body but the shipping is twice the cost of the parts

Whoah, do you use a charcoal pencil as a pick?

I've never seen this particular wear pattern before...

Charcoal pencils make great picks by the look of it :D

EDIT: I somehow managed to miss the first line of your comment and came up with the exact same joke :derp:

That pickguard looks like shit.
Beware of for sale ads advertising Fender Squires, usually they're neither... and remember.. Say NO to relics!

Allparts 1.0mm black picks.
.13 flatwound strings.
High Action

It makes a mess, ruts in the pickguard, and it doesnt wash off. One of the main reasons I put tort pickguards on my expensive guitars. This ones my #1 player though.

Ah! I'd wondered if you were using a copper or metal pick or something. Huh. Yep. Sure does make a mess!
