You know, craigslist hasn’t been that funny lately. Then I found a great guitar ad. It’s really a classic.
The make and model are pretty irrelevant. But the closing line is awesome (as usual, read aloud in your best tough guy voice): “This guitar rips.. you wanna shred like the big boys?- this is your new axe..”
Really, this thing rips. It absolutely shreds. And the elite group of shredders known only as “the big boys” plays this model. Some might even go so far as toÂ refer to it as a fierce medieval weapon, or a tool used to cut down towering redwoods. Just thinking about its monstrous toneÂ and enedless sustain might make you throw out all punctuation rules.Â If you’ve got the balls to take it to the next level, make this guy a reasonable offer. Trades are for fucking wimps.
Yngwie Malmsteen is some cheese-metal shredder dude.
His website is amazing for two reasons.
1. It looks like a myspace page, but is not a myspace page
2. It features the artwork for his latest album (which apparently was designed by a 12 year old in 1986).
Well, my buddy Greg just linked to this site by a guy who spends his free time messing with people on Craigslist.
This one is hilarious.
Some of them are less funny. Maybe I should’ve linked to those first, then that one. Oh, well.
I think this might be a joke, but I can’t tell. Maybe it’s an outward expression of an inside joke.

I am only interested in SERIOUS students who want to WORK and learn how to really destroy on both the mental and physical planes.

You probably haven’t heard, but Ted Weber passed away last Friday.Â
He was a speaker builder, the founder of Weber Speakers, and quite an innovator when it came to guitar tone. I’ve got 3 of his California Series speakers in various speaker cabs. They sound great.
Here’s a link to is obituary.Â
The best part is that he was a hobbyist. Unlike Seymour Duncan or Bill Lawrence who were better known for their playing, before they started designing gear, Ted Weber worked at GM most of his life. He built a few guitar speakers for friends, and then things took off.
Coincidentally, Weber Speakers is in the midst of a 10% off sale.
