    I’d like to kill every tree in North America.

    Huh. Wonder where you are? I grew up in Phoenix - in the middle of what was a former pecan grove (grown with SRP water).

    I’d like to kill every tree in North America.

    In New Hampshire, maybe. At 7000 feet in Colorado, with our Memorial Day to Labor Day growing season...not so much.

    How much should I care about no COA coming with an R9?

    I would agree that the discount should be good, particularly consiering the non-original case. (Even thought the original cases are crap in terms of protecting the instrument, they're part of the cool factor.) Nevertheless, my best-sounding R9 is one with no COA (but original case) and little...

    A Ibanez Shinetex microfiber cloth has ruined a new pickguard. Is there a way to restore it?

    Missing the CPSC-required warnings: Do not put body parts in flame. Do not attempt to eat flame. Do not direct flame toward children or small animals. Do not use flame in the presence of combustible materials. Etc. ad nauseam. Seriously, it's a great tip.

    What's the longest time you've spent learning a song and getting it right?

    What's the longest time you've spent learning a song and getting it right?

    Smoke on the Water. Now that you've finished laughing yourself silly, the rest of the story... ;) I learned the basic parts at 15 when I began playing, but then figured out the solo (to the best of my ability at the time) from the version on Made in Japan. A couple years ago, I resolved to...
