yea, but he does. don't try and play him like that he has been playing guitar since before you were born. he is the one who got me playing guitar and bass. he has spent more money on guitars and guitar parts than your parents have on cars. he told me "if i never picked up a guitar i would either be driving a ferrari or be in a bigger house" he has enough amps and wires to blow a hole in the wall. he is one of the most experienced guitar players i know. he could tell you what year a guitar was by looking at it. and he is my friend as well. so next time you wanna try and flame pick someone else...
You think I was flaming?!
You haven't seen flaming yet!
This is flaming: YOU ARE THE STUPIDEST BABY WHO THINKS HE KNOWS WHAT HE IS TALKING ABOUT AND IS REALLY JUST TAKING UP ROOM IN OUR THREAD!!!!!!! LEAVE YOU STUPID WHINY KID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You are the one trying to think you're all that and saying stupid things that are NOT true.
This thread is not for flaming, it is for the MATURE (a key word here) discussion of guitar/bass.
Little whiny kids like you can can go play in the newbies section.
That, young one, is flaming.
And also, he probably said that to you because you are a beginner and it would not be worth it to put new pickups in your guitar.
And if you can't get a decent sound out of your guitar without a pedal board, then your sound isn't good.

hmm, seems ok but i still think buying new pickups is a waste of money unless your stock ones are blown or stopped working or if your amp is just a plug n play with nothing to really adjust but volume. even then you could take the money from the pickups and invest in an amp. my friend got a line 6 spyder 400 amp and its like the last amp you'll ever need.
I kind of agree and kind of don't. I've never actually replaced my pickups, but I'd imagine it's very satisfactory. Like that feeling you get after you thoroughly clean and restring your gear, except multiplied by like 10. Sort of like a second wind. I've never seen a reason to replace any of my pickups, but I guess some people do... and aftermarket pickups might really help or alter your tone. If I threw EMGs in my bass it would sound incredibly different, and it's a sound no amp, short of crazy head and cab set ups will help me get. Right now my bass sounds like... maybe, well, strings on wood with a bit of treble bite, I mean that's really what it sounds like. With EMGs it would sound all hi-fi and poo. My amp can't change my tone like that, and I have a small, but good amp. (Acoustic)
And the price of pickups is nowhere close to the cost of a good amp... I'm surprised your friend likes his Line 6. I play bass myself so I don't touch that stuff, but I know two guitarists with Line 6 amps and both get horrendous tones that make me want to put my foot through their amp. Granted, I've heard a couple decent tones out of the Line 6's with the pro settings or whatever, but it seems like everyone fights those amps to get a good tone.
It is sooooo exhilarating to put something into a kitten (stock pickups), and turn it into a beast (custom seymour duncans)!
