F!$k Fender and Gibson and F!$k Guitar Center too Is there any wonder why guitars are pieces of crap now and been getting worse for the past 30 years? They are? you say. Yep. Fender and Gibson through Guitar Center are selling throw away guitars for your snot nosed 16 year old wanna be. OK […]
I added a new page:Nerdy You’ll find Ideas and inspirations and other stuff I’m working on.
