"Wilderness appealed to those bored or disgusted with man and his work. It not only offered an escape from society but also was an ideal stage for the romantic individual to exercise the cult that he frequently made of his own soul. The solitude and total freedom of the wilderness created a perfect setting for either melancholy or exultation."
Someone brought me a guitar to tune this morning, and I’ve just found out that since a few years the clay dots on Mexican-made Fenders are not grafted onto the fretboard anymore, but are simply now crappy white thermo-stickers or something. That’s really lame and it kills everything! Even my cheap late-’90s Korean Stratocaster I got as my first guitar have real clay dots. That’s just another good reason not to buy brand new guitars anymore. You have no idea how this kind of little things can piss me off!
