Title: This place has gone quiet

I haven't visited in a while. I seem to remember it being pretty busy all day long on here with lots of regular posters. Everybody moved on?

It has gotten very quiet.  When anything does get posted, the old names seem to answer, so we're all keeping an eye on the forum, but no one seems to have much to say at the minute.

Lotta questions about modern sounds these days, which I know little about. I should due to my age, but I donīt. I feel old...sides that single coils, which I only can talk about once I get some. Need more guitars.

Beyond that I am just kinda saturated with stuff. Donīt have the space for more. And my money and space flows into homebrewing.

 Craziest thing going on is that I might try to pull the RY set + IT out of my Ibby S, put the set in a LP, taking out the SH SM combo, and putting Crawler bridge, SH middle, and MQ neck in the Ibby. Dunno what happens to the current crawler axe though (IT middle, crawler neck in bridge, Mule neck? Dunno). So a lot of throwing things around really, seeing if I canīt optimise for a more layed back playing style.


Sides that I am checking things. Sometimes outbursts of action, but generally I just donīt feel like I have much to say. Anytime a proper review is posted I add it to the sticky though, that thing ainīt dying on my watch.


Could this be a "people donīt post cause people donīt post" kinda deal?

There just aren't as many n00bs posting here asking for opinions.

They seem to use the FB (or perhaps even the new messaging system on the BK online shop) for that more these days

Yeah it is quieter but I do try to check in every few days. As has been said, I think people use other routes to raise questions but such is the way of the world. I am still playing a lot and digging my BKPs!

I don't play nearly as much as I used to but still have time for a couple hours a week if I'm not working. I always check on here but I'm not really as interested in new gear any more now so don't have much to talk about! Pretty much got my guitar setup how I like it, occasionally get the odd bit of GAS but that's about it haha.

I'm still with my 2 bands gigging and practicing a few times a week, but whenever I check in on here it mainly seems to be questions about pickups for genres of music I have no experience with, or gear I have no info on, so I tend to keep quiet.

Still picking up BK's and guitars!  Play once a week for a jam with a drummer and bass player, doing classic covers really.  At least I get to cycle through the guitars!  Still trying to fix the house after Hurricane Sandy.  Once it's done I'll have somewhere to get to the guitars easily again.

+1 on quiet.  I'm not really spending time on forums these days.  I've had a brief flirtation with thefretboard, but it's not as nice as here.

Rehearsal tonight with my VHII loaded Charvel.  Party on!

agree, this forum has almost died, people are facebook slaves thesedays, but I'm not even on there.

I like others am a lot busier thesedays, with my own mixing and mastering business and various other guitar related activities.

Face book is cr@p compared to forums.
Forums are very much like social filing cabinets.
Here we can all search every part and find old advice etc.
On fb if its unpopular its gone.

I just joined, but I have noticed the age on some threads which are at the top of the list is the sub forums. 

Whatever, the case, I've read some great posts here regarding BKP pickups.

As an aside, I wonder if the verification process I've had to use for most of my very few posts has anything to do with it?  The letters are difficult to read sometimes, the audio  start  "button" often appears  off my screen, and it's generally more of a pain than  any one of the other four forums I frequent.   For my first post, I just figured it was extra security, but a few posts in, I'm still having to do it.  It won't stop me, but some may figure why bother?

Time to do the 4 step process to post...

Whatever my issue was in my above post, it's gone (user error?).
