    I found a Bootleg custom guitar brand. Rojack 2000 dollars. I need it. The quality is great. And just look at it. I love the paint job. And I can not play it. My tinnitus is really bad. I'm praying it goes away like last time. But I need this guitar. I need it. Help me I'm weak. :cautious::cool::poutingcat:

    Mojo for your tinnitus to go away , there is a lot of research going on so there is help , but that guitar gives me a ringing sensation in my eyeballs.

    Yeah, that's putting it mildly lol.

    @Randell if it makes you feel better, I can tell you the quality of this is certainly not great. Take one peek at that photo of the neck joint...

    Yes , if it was a neck through construction it would move it out of the 'art' guitar scene , my main complaint is that i just would not have the panache for such a guitar.

    Good luck with the tinnitus thing; that sucks. But that guitar- you'll hurt somebody with that thing!

    Not my aesthetic but to each his/her own.
    Very stylized and looks well-made to my eye.

    @Randell, I've had tinnitus for over ten years. It doesn't mean you're going deaf. Have you been to an ENT specialist? My doctor said I only have 'notch' hearing loss (a very specific frequency that's too high to really matter). And I should just use common sense to protect my hearing.

    My tinnitus probably came about from my work as a sound man... sitting in front of the mains without ear plugs for extended periods of time.

    He said that nobody really knows what causes tinnitus. It can be caused by subjecting your ears to continuous loud noise, but some people get tinnitus for apparently no reason at all (could be stress, high blood pressure, etc.).

    I was pretty freaked out when it started happening (anxiety makes tinnitus worse). I thought I was going to go deaf and would have to give up playing, but my ENT said that there's no reason to stop playing in a band (he's a musician too).

    He said; on stage, you're safer than the audience is, because you're not standing in front of the PA speakers. It's at rehearsal where you're at the greatest risk, because people tend to play louder than they need to, and point their amps inward. So if you're not getting damage from your own amp, your ears are getting battered by every one else's amps.

    If you use acoustical ear plugs (that are designed to deflect the pressure wave, but still let all the frequencies through), you should be ok... But don't take my advice... Take your doctor's advice. My situation may be different from yours.

    I just wanted to let you know that having tinnitus doesn't necessarily mean you're losing your hearing, or that you can't play any more.

    Mine is reactive. Every noise makes it louder. No spikes. Louder it does not decrease. I have floaters. Last time I had visual snow syndrome. Watch the video. I see spots and things. My eye site is effected. I also have nerve problems. When it get severe. And it is past that. It feel like my nerves are being stung by bees with electricity runny through them. Every one must protect them self from it getting to that point.

    Some people like my pastor and his wife stays at a base level and spikes every once in a while. And they sing, make CD's DVD's. They are sort of well known and know a lot of famous gospel singers and TV preachers. Your's must be the same. You have a everyday constant head ace. My mom got me something to sleep. Over he sleep meds spiked it. The doctors will not give me nothing to sleep. Or a Benzo to lower it. She got it in here name. Every day it gets 20 times louder with every noise. It sucks.:cry::frowning::sleepy::mad::(

    Sorry for your situation, Randall. Mojo to you.

    I've got nerve pain, myself. Some days it's tolerable. Some days it brings me to the edge of insanity. :mad::(

    Your situation sounds a bit worse than mine. My tinnitus only gets louder if I focus on it, or have anxiety (it can sound like the roar of a jet engine if I'm having a full-on anxiety attack). So there’s a psychological element to it, but loud noises don’t make my tinnitus worse. It never goes away, but I can choose to ignore it.

    For a while, it was difficult to be in a quiet room, or to sleep at night without music or white noise in the background. Now, I can sit in complete silence (reading or at the computer) and barely even notice the ringing. Like the noise from your refrigerator motor... When you move into a new place, you might be keenly aware of how loud the refrigerator is compared to your old one (and it can even keep you awake at night), but after a week or so, you don’t hear it anymore (unles you’re trying to).

    Have you tried meditation? I meditate regularly (twice a day), which significantly reduces the occurance of anxiety, and intense attacks are rare. But when I do have an actual ‘attack’, meditation ends it very quickly. It also has many other benefits, and if it hasn’t reduced the severity of my tinnitus, it has reduced my awareness and emotional reaction to it (same thing, really).

    OK, I need to go w/ fullonshred, other than only having about 1/4" of wood on wood contact that's keeping the neck attached to the body, whats wrong with the neck joint?

    GUITAR.NECK.jpg Now this is ABOUT the worst label you've ever seen, but looking at area 1 looks like there's only 1/4 inch of wood on wood contact holding that neck on

    Look at #2 and EITHER there is a pencil line drawn down the neck or that really IS the neck joint, substantiating my idea about #1
    Then you look at area #3 and it gets REALLY WONKY, looks like 1/8" fret board overhang from the neck, now Ive never seen that. but that doesn't make it bad

    or does it?

    Or did I actually miss the issue entirely?

    See I really liked it, until I saw the one humbucker. Now Im sure there are lots of folks who cabn make all kinds of good sound sfrom a guitar w/ 1 pup

    Im just not one of them
