of course maple fingerborad sounds brighter(!) just like a metal nut sounds
brighter than other materials. more hard-wood, more heavy gear - means more
sound from your strings and less wood resonance. I shit you not. rosewood
fingerboard DOES sound warmer but you can always compensate with heavy duty
bridge, saddles, nut and frets.

hi ,i enjoy your videos.I would like to know your opinion about scalloped
fretboards, recently refretted mine and since i felt experimental i
scalloped the last five frets of my stratocaster,and i have to admit that
playing bendings there now is an orgasmic thing in my opinion.i used very
high dunlop 6100 jumbo frets and the action is rather high,personally i
love it,and im tempted to scallop some more u think i would get
the same benefits in terms of grip on the strings as i get at the higher
part of the fretboard?I would also like to know your opinion about the
different materials used for frewire,like normal nickel vs stainless
steel and golden mixed composite,thanks,rock on

Hey Scott, does this apply to acoustic guitars bro?

Author xGshikamaru (20 days)
Some people use steel wool to clean their rosewood fingerboard, what do you
think of it ? Of course given the pickups are magnetic you need to
carefully tape the neck pickup or steel wool dust will go there. It seems
like a lot of trouble for little benefit for me. Also, oil is not for
cleaning, but keeping a good level of moisture in the wood, I tend to use
alcohol to clean my fretboard, but as it dries the wood, I apply oil to
keep it healthy.

Great way of teaching and putting some sense into the watchers, really

Hi Groovy. Two questions.

1) Does lubbing the nut/saddles really makes a difference with a tremolo in
order to maintain tuning? (I have a bridge with rolling saddles anyway so I
guess it doesn't apply to that)...the tremolo I'm using is a LesTrem II so
I don't want it for more than vibrato.

2) Are you hanging/grabbing all those guitars by the neck? doesn't that
fuck the guitars up over time?

Thanks a lot you dumb motherfucker :D

Author Rob Maxwell (17 days)
Ok thanks for that, let me re-phrase my question, assuming that I don't
mean the literal definition of 'plywood', which is layers of wood pressed
one on top of another, or two or sometimes three whole blocks of wood glued
side by side and shaped an painted to look like a single piece, or particle
board for that matter and I literally mean a material like balsa wood? I
have heard of guitar bodies being made from foam before, it astounds me
what 'manufactures' can actually craft from various materials other than
what you would normally, I suppose, expect.
Also Les Paul was famed for playing his hand built guitar, which is
literally, as you probably know, a centre block with two plywood ;) wings,
personally from what I've heard of this instrument I think it sounds very
dull, I wonder if it would stand up against your string plucking test or if
it would acoustically sound bright and furthermore more or less bright?
Let me know what you think :)

hey groovy I have a question I mean I love maple fingerboards for what you
just said they don't get full of shit and they just feel nicer to the touch
but I love the look of a rosewood board (never played on ebony) but I
wonder why do they not apply the coating on rosewood as well? from what I
know it wouldn't kill the guitar or any shit should I attempt to apply
myself or have somebody do it?

I took my Strat in for some wiring and the concerned tech took me aside and
told me that my Seymour Duncan vintage alnico 5's needed to be replaced
because my Strat has a maple neck. I was like, "huh, it sounds great?" He
took pity on me and told me to just change em out if I wanted my axe to
sing. The point you make on the mother of pearl puts to rest all the tone
wood assholes making life miserable for so many people. Talk to real
players and they are more often than not NOT fetishists. Thanks Scott, you
crazy groovy mother fucker!

Author Marty Tippens (13 days)
I very much appreciate your maple vs rosewood demonstration debunking the
transference-based notion that the brighter maple fretboard produces a
brighter tone. I'm afraid there is yet another goofball notion that you'll
need to debunk out there stating that early '60's Fender slab-board necks
produce a "thicker" tone! Its actually said in so many words on a youtube
review of an AV '59 rosewood board Stratocaster

Author Kenny Clark (20 days)
Ha! Ha! Ha! I loved "warm/bright" demonstration (with the inlays.) I was
employed as an industrial ultrasonic inspector some years ago (and was top
of my graduating class in the field.) I completely agree with you that the
different inlays or wood have nothing to do with the tone of the guitar.
The difference of the acoustic impedances of the various materials is not
enough for the human ear to tell the difference, therefore the teeny, tiny,
minute, infinitesimal, differences in sound between these materials cannot
be detected by human ears. If this were really a concern then we'd all
have to worry about calluses and fingernail length and a whole lot of other
shit too. You're absolutely's all bullshit! Thanks for the
video. I really enjoyed it!

Author LogicallyInsane1 (16 days)
I agree the woods make no difference. However, I have noticed that the new
guitar strap I bought has made my guitar sound way brighter. I put it in
the dryer for 25 minutes, and pulled it out, and it made my guitar sound
warmer. I'm hoping for a happy medium between the two. Should I go with 12
and a half mins in the dryer? And also, once the strap cooled down, I
noticed my guitar just kept getting brighter.. Is there anyway to avoid

This should be a series, man! 2 Years ago I got my first guitar worth more
than $100; Govt. series LP. All in all I love the guitar, but it's
definitely very gimmicky and I won't be giving a shit about rosewood again
haha. I like that they skipped all the plastic binding on it though; it's a
little lighter than a full on LP. Sounds great through distortion and such,
but having a hard time finding a cleaner tone that works. I'm sure 10% of
that is the gear I'm using and 90% the fact that I've only been playing
about 3 years.

Have you played any Zager guitars? If so, please elaborate or link to
somewhere you've done so already.

Thank for all the free knowledge!

I bought a old Indonesia made Fender Squier Bullet guitar in a pawn shop in
Quebec Canada a few years ago! The shop owner didnt even want to sell it as
he said it was just a window dressing and probably didnt even work. He
ended up selling it to me for $40 ( I offered him $70 bucks) and I
proceeded to plug into a 40 watt Dean Markley chorus amp (Exellent amp in
its own right I discovered) and WOW!! This guitar sounded better than my
91' American made strat, which I held in high esteem. The Squiers'
fretboard seemed very dry, and the guitar with old strings just seemed to
hold its sustain forever! TELL YA THE TRUTH..I FELT LIKE I STOLE IT! Never
been excited about a guitar in a long time, but this super cheap fixed
bridge guitar with staggered pickups, blew away my baby'd up American
strat, and has been my 'go to, 'Get 'er Done' guitar since... Just had to
share that story out, and let people know their are inexpensive treasures
found in every guitar! Dont let $$$ dictate quality tone you seek!

I fucking love this guy and I love the "real point of the video" at the
end. So true. Just play the guitar and work on your technique. So many
people think its the fucking gear that makes them sound good but you gotta
know how to play that guitar with your rack of effects not just rely on
your fuckin this or your fuckin that.
