Welcome to the GB&C Central Hub!

This is the new central resource thread for the GB&C. It contains links to all of the ONLY/ULTIMATE threads, links to several great tutorials, and a link to the reorganized GB&C resource thread, which itself contains a wealth of information. In addition, this thread contains guidelines for making a good thread and some guidelines for the forum regulars, as well as some GB&C-specific rules.

The links and information contained here will be updated as new information and useful threads (only/ultimate, tutorials, etc) pop up, so check back often!

This thread is and shall remain a work in progress, since it will be continually updated with new information. If you have any ideas for additions, just PM a Moderator and they'll take care of it!

GB&C-Specific Rules:

*Do not give advice on a subject you don't know about. Dangerous advice will get you a warning.

*Advertising your business, company, or whatever is a bannable offense. It usually results in a permanent ban.

*Respect the opinions of other users. Everyone has different tastes in what looks good or what works for them. Don't bash other peoples' gear or paint job/guitar body shape ideas, etc.

*Don't bump old threads, unless you started it originally and/or there is a unique and genuine need for new information.

**More to come...

New Thread Guidelines:

*Make a good, clear OP. Include all the information you think is relevant. Asking what type of pickups you should get is too vague. Include your current control configuration, the style(s) of music you play, even the wood your guitar is made of, if you can.

*Have some content. If you are posting a build, post the build pictures and commentary in the thread. Do not post a link to another website as your only content.

*Name your threads appropriately. I can't tell you how annoying it is to see a thread title simply called "help" or something ambiguous like that. It has always been against the GB&C rules to do this, anyway, and can result in the thread being closed. It may also result in a warning if deemed appropriate by the acting moderator.

**More to come...

Guidelines for the forum regulars:

*Don't chew the newbies. You used to be one. Be helpful and point them in the right direction. You don't have to do everything FOR them.

*When telling a user to to consult a sticky or an only/ultimate thread, be considerate in telling them so and link them to the appropriate thread. Don't just report the thread for closing and leave them hanging like that.

**More to come...
