  1. Not sure if anyone else has brought this up, but the new songs made me think about The Rest of My Life by Less Than Jake, which Mark co-wrote. OMT and MTYK feel like follow-ups to it.
  2. I've got you. I'll only send the interview link to trusted members though. I don't want to get any PMs from noobs.
  3. I don't know anything about that brand, but typically the inexpensive starter guitars on Amazon have spotty quality control and, as a beginner, you might not be able to tell whether there are issues or what specifically they are. If you buy one, I'd suggest bringing it in somewhere for a set-up (or if you're friends with any experienced guitarists, you could ask them if it plays well) to make sure it's as playable as it can be. But of course a set-up costs money and will probably cancel out a lot of the savings from buying a guitar like this on Amazon. In my opinion, you'd be better off going to a guitar shop and buying something there. It'll probably cost more, but most shops will make sure the guitar's set up properly and if it's not, they should let you bring it back for a free set-up or return/exchange it if there are major issues.
  4. Banning you for calling it X rather than Twitter.
  5. I hated Shake It Off when I first heard it too. I'm still not a huge fan, but it's a lot of fun live. Blank Space is the song that really made me a fan.
  6. This is a great album, but I have absolutely no desire to spend $50+ to get another copy of it.
  7. That's the album that got me into her music. I'm psyched!
  8. It took me a few months, but I was 11 and a girl. 😂
  9. I'm quite happy with it overall. It had some of the common QC issues with this reissue (logo placement on the headstock is a little off, an edge of the pickguard is chipped and I basically had to do a full set up... the action was stupidly high and the intonation wasn't great), but nothing major and it's playing great now. I still need to oil the fretboard because it's incredibly dry, but I'll wait until the first string change to do that. I've also discovered that I don't particularly like that volume knob placement, but I'm sure it's just a matter of getting used to it.
  10. Nah, just look at his pants. The man has no taste.
  11. Speaking of guitar mods, I finally got around to trying out soldering. I replaced the pickups and all the electronics in my old MIM strat. It all went way more smoothly than I expected, so thanks to you and @Paparazzi Magnet for encouraging me to give it a go.
  12. They seem to be pushing these really hard, so hopefully they'll be around for a while and you'll be able to get one eventually!
  13. Glad I pre-ordered my TD strat because the stock in Canada seems quite limited. Mine should get here next week, but new orders are now saying they won't ship until October.
  14. Fender would have been stupid not to reissue the TD strat. So many of the people who started playing guitar because of Tom have the disposable income to drop on a $1k+ guitar now. Add in the resurgence in blink's popularity and the fact that Tom's back with Fender and it was a no-brainer.
  15. And MIM Fenders are so much better now than they were 20 years ago, at least in general.
  16. I'm sure that will be true in the future, but for now, I can't see many people being willing to pay the same/more for a used one when brand new models are flooding the market.
  17. It's hilarious seeing people on Reverb still trying to sell the old ones for as much or more as the reissue.
  18. It's a steal compared to the cost of the old Mexican version on reverb these days. You could always wait for the value of those to drop (which I imagine this reissue will cause) and buy one of those.
