Once you actually understand how sound and music really work together as one in true harmony, you'll see that having the ball ends on your strings creates a flux aura around the pickups and transitions inwardly with the magnetic response of the pickups.

    Just give in and accept balls as your musical savior.

    This is close.... but only between the last two, and the fingernail edges out intentionally buying Line6.

    How was "not oiling your fretboard like a disgusting animal" not an option in this poll?

    Worst musical atrocity and #1 pet peeve, and the only thing I hate more than people who neglect fretboards, is people who play one of your guitars and do a "neck bend" without asking you.

    It's a bad enough atrocity if it's their own fucking guitar. Sadly I know a bunch of people who think this is OK. Specifically more "classic rock"/"blues" oriented players.



    That's the point where you have to give them the lecture, "How would you feel if, without asking, I just came into your house, grabbed your grandmas urn from the mantle place, spilled the ashes everywhere, and then shit on the floor? Don't ever do that to a guitar of mine again."

    It's round 1, fuckstick. That means subsequent rounds to determine which is the champion of all atrocities. Like your bitchass Hot Topic patch jacket, which will no doubt appear in a later round.

    PS: Guitar honey rules.

    I agree with the spirit of this post, but I question the equivalence of these two things

    Can we have an "all of the above"-option?

    I have to admit I owned a Flextone 2 for about 13 years. It wasn't terrible by any means, certainly better than the Kustom 10 W amp I had before, but both the 6505+ and Laney IRT Studio I've owned after it are vastly superior. The worst thing about the Flextones is that they're impossible to sell - I'm now trying to sell my brother's obsolete Line 6 stuff, but nobody's showing any interest. He should have just kept the Tech 21 TM60 - that was actually a really good amp, just didn't have enough gain.
