Unambiguos Guitar Provenance Terminology

I am starting a new thread for this discussion so as not to hijack another post. I'll try to reproduce the relevant items so far: I originally asserted: Apologies in advance, but I am on a [part-time] mission for precise guitar provenance terminology. I think this is the only way we can all discuss ...

Apologies in advance, but I am on a [part-time] mission for precise guitar provenance terminology. I think this is the only way we can all discuss these things with clarity and civility. I think it's important to distinguish between originals , reproductions , and counterfeits . Another valid word f...

After some research...Is this possibly a Fakai? I do reside in Canada.. If it's a fake Tokai, it's not the infamous "Canadian Fakai" that we normally discuss i.e. the one with "Make in Korea" [sic] on the back of the headstock. Also, the headstock has the typical UK version nib in the bookmark, whi...

Re: Buying 80's MIJ Breezysound - Advise/Help

Music theory / __ walked into a bar joke

This was posted by last.fm founder, on this thread: http://www.quora.com/What-are-the-best-_____-walked-into-a-bar-jokes# A C, an E-flat, and a G go into a bar. The bartender says: "Sorry, but we don't serve minors." So, the E-flat leaves, and the C and the G have an open fifth between them. After a...
