All of these are bad, but mostly only hurt you. Owning a Line 6 amp hurts you and everyone around you.

Friends don't let friends buy Line 6.

Pinky, because real classical guitarists don't even use one. My nails are shorter than many, but the pinky is the only one on my right hand that's cut short.

Some of the flamenco guys use the pinky pretty well. But they are the freaks of the acoustic guitar world.

ACTUALLY. As a luthier, i can attest that the sonic return curve on a Floyd Rose equipped guitar having the ball ends still attached has an inverse effect on the gain structure of most 12AX7 tubes, depending on what music you're playing. 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 :lol:

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.

You're right. Doing a neck bend is far worse.

Especially if they bitch about how double locking trems are bridges for poseurs because Led Zeppelin never needed double locking trems and then proceed to completely ignore the double locking trem that could easily do the thing they want and make grunting noises while physically exerting themselves in an attempt to crudely bend the guitar neck like Paul Bunyan hopped up on PCP.
