The Affinity series tele's are $199, and have alder bodies. Pretty sure those are made in china but correct me if i'm wrong.

The Standard series teles are $249, and have agathis bodies? Also, it states that they are made in mexico on GC's site. (which could be wrong I suppose, being the internet and all).

That seems backwards to me, unless wood supply levels/pricing are that much better in Asia.

I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.

Well, tonewood makes much less of a difference on electrics than acoustics, so my guess would be the money is going to the electronics (someone more educated than I back me up/correct me). Things that make a bigger difference. Manufacturing spots could also make a difference, but given the wood situation, I think the money may be reinvested into better electronics.
Guitar/Bass:
Schecter: Damien 6/Stilletto Extreme 5, Squier: Bullet HSS*, Washburn RX10*/WG-587, Agile Septor 727
*mods

Amps/FX
Peavey: Vypyr 30/Max 112 (200W), ISP: Decimator

That may very well be a factor, though I'm not sure that it's an overriding one. A lot of woods are sourced in Asia, particularly those grown on plantations (mahogany, for example).

You sure about that?

Are you trying to prove my point right? Cause Steven Pearcy sounds awful in that and has sounded awful the last 4 years


And the joke is cause people used to put Ratt clips when they did gear demos. That's what I was referencing.


Also that was a 1 off reunion and Pearcy has been gone from Ratt the last 2 years.

Yeah it was a little bit inside so I can see the confusion.


FWIW though I'm a big hair guy and I love Ratt.

I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

dspellman that's no mashup. that's just inappropriate editing.

since we're posting matchups.



OT - it's probably true about electronics as well, hadn't considered that.
