So today I found out the guitarist in my band didn't know what humbuckers, single coils, or any pick-up for that matter were.

I thought this was kind of strange because he has been playing for awhile and is pretty good, I figured he knew what the stuff on his instrument was called.

Anyways, have any of you had something like this happen?

A bassist that didn't know what a pickguard was? A guitarist that didn't know you could change strings?

Well I've been playing for over a year and still have NO idea what the hell tone is...also my band had a guitarist that didn't know there was any other tuning than standard...

yeah a lot of guitarists dont know what "the action" on a guitar is.
Me: Wow the action on your guitar is pretty high.
Them: What?

Sure
They were people that payed attention to PLAYING more than the technical stuff.
Like they knew if they twisted this knob and flicked this switch it would give them the sound they wanted, but they didnt know what those knobs or switches were lol.

Im still in arms about whether a Fret is the space between the metal things or the metal stips themselves.

That's not even a competition...they're completely different sized trucks...It should be either Ford Ranger vs. Dodge Dakota or Ford F150 vs. Dodge Ram.
