I saw them a few months back. It was worth it for me because it was a small club show of maybe 200 people max because people in the states don't love the biff. and i haven't ever seen them live prior. $90 for a GA pit at a large venue is a little more eh. I don't mind the last album but they did play a fair number of tunes from it when I saw them. Not sure of the most recent setlists though.

Random thought: Jaicen & musecasters, since you guys build guitars, what do you think of Fender's move to use Pau Ferro on all MIM guitars instead of rosewood? Is it a close subsitute? Are there any other woods that aren't traditionally used for fretboards but would be closer to rosewood?

You're thinking of buying that tele, aren't you?

There are some that are similar (bubinga for example), but they're now also covered by the CITES regs, so people can't try passing off rosewood as a non-convention alternative.

If you're thinking of getting a custom, don't worry too much you can still get pretty much whatever you want, it just comes with an extra charge on top, but I understand Pau Ferro is good, and has been used as a substitute for true rosewoods.

As to what I think of the move to Pau Ferro, I think there's no need for scarce tropical hardwoods on cheap guitars. I think they should ditch the Pau Ferro to be honest, and go exclusively maple. It's less of an issue for Fender than say, Gibson for example.

To be honest, I expect to see Pau Ferro on the CITES list in a few years time, along with all genus' of Ebony, Ziricote, and basically any other tropical hardwoods from rainforest sources.

You're living at the tail end of the golden age of guitar building.

When builders start using skateboard ramp material for fretboards, just remember... Gibson did it first.

Haha no, maybe TVL's JM before it gets a Pau Ferro fretboard.

I always liked the look of darker rosewood boards anyway. If I were to get a custom I would get ebony.

James said ebony feels a lot different, so that can't be a rosewood substitute. I think Gibson was testing out richlite last year or the year before on a couple guitars - I wonder how that's going. Tbh if richlite feels like real wood, I would be happy to get a guitar with a richlite board.

I do agree Jaicen, I absolutely don't think slapping rosewood on a $199 Squier is sensible or sustainable

Actually I'd go a bit further, it should probably be reserved for the high end 'nice pieces'.

There's other synthetic substitutes in addition to richlite, one of which is a rosewood type made from bamboo fibre or something. It looks pretty sweet to be honest, and something I'd like to try.

ďI know Iíll get shit for saying this, but itís fucking lazy. Itís insulting to people who spent 35 years playing and learning, like a lot of players. And we continue to work at it!

What do you actually play? Pick up an acoustic guitarÖ try that!Ē
Detecting some (not so) subtle jealousy here...
