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.

This episode was sponsored by Sinasoid. They have an article on their website where they justify their costs. Who else is going to bring you this kind of transparency? Go read the piece. It's worth it. This is why we're glad to contine working with Sinasoid.
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.

Ryan and Steve had some drinks that were stronger than usual and end up with a recording that is slower than usual. Steve finally gets a chance to talk about the Friday Club ED-450b and El Cardinale overdrive. They're great. That's all you need to really know. We get to ads like this one, suppose you want a DiMarzio pick up and you have a mountain bike layout around. Well, let this guy know, okay? What's that? You want a pink Duo Sonic...yeah, that's a thing. Also, someone things adding metal dots to a $500 Gretsch makes it worth $1500. Spoiler: We disagree.
This week we talk about NoiseKICK FX, and that gray area where personal beliefs and paying customers collide.
