Thoughts on Monoprice DLX Plus guitars Versus Squier/Epiphone/other beginner guitars
  • I would agree on Yamaha, just make sure you play it 1st and get a good setup or learn to do it on your own. I don't own one but have handled a couple, I'd say they come in a bit nicer than the Ibanez Gio stuff and just under their lower main line of instruments. Depending on what price point the Epiphones are you can also get a great guitar cheap - their set neck models, pound for pound, are better built than their Gibson counterparts, mainly because Gibson still cuts the headstock along with the neck, creating a weak spot. Epiphones are done with a scarf joint which is much stronger if it happens to take a spill.

  • The front fell off.
  • I think it's a good added measure to stop a print, in this case something caused the spaghetti, it would have kept causing spaghetti but the cover popping off stopped the print. I've got about 400 hrs on my p1s (upgraded from p1p), and I've never had the faceplate pop off. I would guess this is an isolated incident.

  • Sadly, it seems any mass gathering is a potential target for this kind of bullshit. Regardless of the number of law enforcement in the area, it only takes seconds to mag dump pretty much any firearm. I'd be interested to know if the victims were complete bystanders or if this was the result of some sort of altercation.

  • You won't find much of an argument with me on any of these points. We see our freedoms get trampled on in the name of... whatever, and too many people just say "thank you sir, may I have another".

  • Finally a well thought out and reasonable response. I appreciate that, along with the lack of name-calling.

    The issue at hand is, mere negligence, even if it was ruled as such, rarely elicits a conviction, and oftentimes won't even resort in charges. Stack that with the resentment that roughly 50% of the voting public (not ongoing to argue numbers, just using it as a rough guide) would see it as an attack on the person whom they believed in and voted for (or saw as a foil to someone they liked less, in this case Biden).

    There's also the issue that criminal negligence is notoriously hard to convict on, and in the highly unlikely scenario it were charged, convicted and sentenced, it wouldn't take a dream team of lawyers to overturn based on unequal application of the law, which, in this case, wouldn't take more than watching the nightly news.

    None of this is stating that it's my belief that he was criminally negligent by using the terms "fight like hell" and such, I do not. It's common enough vernacular in the English language that to try and indict, let alone convict on it is pretty paper-thin.

    Look, I understand that roughly half of the country dislikes him, if not outright hates him. However, that isn't enough to throw out precedent in an attempt to remove him from the ballot. The fact that it is being tried in several states is, in its pure form, fascism.

    Interesting that you bring up the possibility of false flag actors, I wasn't going to go there, but I do appreciate the honesty in that it is quite possible there were some there.

  • What, pray tell, gives you that idea? Considering i seem to know more about it than most of the people in this thread that want to pull some sort of "gotcha" on me, id argue the opposite. What do you find me to be in disagreement with the constitution on? Only arguments I've made here have been that there's no proof that Trump ordered an assault on the capitol. If your argument is that they were whipped up by his rhetoric (and I'd like to see it in context, including the "peacefully and patriotically let your voices be heard" part included), then way more people need to be imprisoned longer for their "involvement" in the BLM/antifa riots of 2020. Maxine Waters literally stated that if you see a "Trumper" in a public place to get in their face and tell them they're not welcome. Seems to be pretty inciting speech, yet she's free to roam about and squander our tax dollars (like both sides do, I'm not disputing that). You don't really believe any of this shit, you just hate Trump and see it as an excuse to remove him from politics and to serve as a warning to anyone who dares to stand in the way of your progressive agenda.

    Saying I was "there in spirit, so come get me" was pretty obviously a joke. If you don't like it, that's on you.
