Rank #2: 125 - Tone Is Not in The Fingers!
In Episode 125 Ryan and Steve give a little recap of Kauerfest before doing a little housekeeping and moving onto our weekly ads. If you've ever been worried that your Strat or Tele isn't perfectly intonated at every fret position, these tempered frets might be your solution. Ever want to get the perfect glamour photos for your capo? Maybe you should try some shots out by the pool. Oh yeah...Andres Segovia's student chose this guitar. That guarantees quality...right?
This week we tackle the statement "Tone is in your fingers" and look at what people mean by it and why we we're tired of hearing about it.

Rank #8: 129 - Terrible Ass Guitar
Welcome to episode 129. If you're in the Orange County area and want to hang out on 7/23/16, come to the Quilter Labs open house. Go to the Quilter website for more information. We're really excited to do the show, and hopefully can get some great material out of it.
Next, we hit what we can only hope is an attempt to turn a guitar into a Muppet. I mean, why do people do this to guitars? Someone sent an ad where you can trade an ass guitar (a bad one, at that) for a motorcycle. Lastly, we read about a guy that's going to destroy a guitar if he can't sell it. Unfortunately, the image wouldn't upload, so that's a huge bummer.
This week's main topic is the Rhoney Lil Stinker. It looks like a Dreamcicle, but it tastes a lot different.
This week's music is "Tu Vuoi Arrivare Su" by Gli Uragani. This is what happens when listeners don't send their own music for us to play.
