    So I thought I ask what music forums you all check out. This one is my first and fave for sure. It was and is the one I really liked best from some 10 years ago. Feels like family, always go here first. Everyone is so helpful and is the only forum I trust to send money too when I want to buy gear. But I also check out other ones too. SO FIRST on MY list is
    1 Agf forum, simply the best for me.
    2 The gear page. Mainly because it has the most constant and new topics.
    3 strat talk , like strats
    4 mylespaul like les pauls and other stuff there.
    5 epi talk although this one runs out of post quick.
    6 the boogie board like mesa boogies, but has really gotten slow there
    And those are my routine ones , do go yo oyhers too.
    AGF IS for sure everyday

    Mostly just this one daily.

    TDPRI.com is excellent for Teles, but I usually lurk the build and finish threads. There's an encyclopedia of info there for building, finishing, and maintaining guitars. The Strat and Squier '51 subforums are always good too.

    I've been looking into seven string guitars a lot recently, so sevenstring.org has been helpful as well.

    It's rare, but the music threads on Reddit can also have interesting topics from time to time. It's slowly spiralling down into mainly shitposting these days. It was better, but it's just a big arguement now.

    Just this and occasionally rigtalk. I just don't have the time right for a lot of internet time. There is so much other stuff to do and could care less about checking multiple forums all the time.

    I used to visit rig talk alot, but now I mainly visit AGF, squier talk, and TGP in that order and sometimes I visit Talkbass to ask a question or two.

    This is my home base, but I do lurk on TDPRI sometimes, and only occasionally post (it's harder to participate in a thread, when a bunch of people have already said what you were going to say by the time you get to it). I also check in on TalkBass from time to time, but the traffic there is worse than TDPRI. The user-base there is massive. Threads go to multiple pages within minutes... And a lot of the comments are worthless, or repetitive, because nobody bothers to actually read the threads. They just read the titles and then rush to put their two cents in.

    I don't really have time for more forums than this one, actually... I already spend more time here than I should! :)

    AGF, TDPRI, occasionally MyLesPaul, and I spend too much time lurking when I should be practicing (like now).

    Since we changed from the Agile Guitar Forum to A Guitar Forum, I only visit this one as we cover all the types and brands and this is a great group of people, feels like home.

    None. Most forums (music or other special interests) are filled with people even more full of themselves. Just not worth particpating. Only go there if searching a particular piece of gear to read opinions (which often quickly devolve into pissing matches (my stream is yellower than your stream...yes but my stream can knock around urinal cakes...)).

    Yes...it's Monday morning here in Bangkok and my GF has just filled my apartment with some nasty arsed fish smell from the microwave and I'm not in a good mood because it doesn't bug her in the least. I guess I need one of those "No Steamed Mackerel Allowed" signs....Ebay ?

    Posting; AGF 95% , TDPRI 4% , others less than 1%.

    Like a lot of you here, I feel this is home base. I like occasionally adding to other discussions/questions in other forums on specific amp or guitar related stuff but I only really give my open opinion here where the decorum is wholly respectful.

    I sometimes search for topics in google and travel the globe of forums for info. If I were to list my main readers it would be

    AGF TDPRI and TheGearPage. The gearpage is a bit of a shark tank and often reminds me of Harmony central in the early days before it went off the cliff with aggressive soap boxing. I do find really good supportive and interesting threads but sometimes a crusader enters and it takes a nose dive. Must be the price of so many members?

    AGF is my fave, because of the peeps, and the not-taking-ourselves-too-serious attitude.
    I am also a member of:
    TGP, visit daily more than once, I'm there trying to sell mostly, I like the humour in the Pub. Lotta Pedalphiles and corkers
    Canadian Guitar Forum, visit daily usually, it's sort of like a mini-agf,
    mylespaul, maybe once a week, it's a fun place, good humour, but can be a bit corksniffery
    TDPRI, maybe once or twice a week, used to be a lot more, but it's gotten really weird last six months, so much crazy chinese spam, super slow pages
    talkbass, hardly ever, but very down to earth, real people.
    Ultimateguitar, once every couple months maybe, interesting vibe there, like 2500 super eager beginners, three working metal guys, and five old salts
    Reranch forum, hardly not much anymore since I finish few guitars now
    Harmony Central, does it even still exist? Visit every few months to look around, then leave, but I can't quit them, been a member since wayyyyy back

    I think that's it. That's too many.

    This place almost exclusively. The only time I'll hit any of the other popular ones is if researching a particular guitar or problem takes me there. That or occasionally their classifieds. Although I have infrequently posted on a few of them, it almost always had to do with Agiles or technical issues related to left-handed guitars...

    This. Don´t need another. Besides, time doesn´t help -the lack of, that is-. So only this. And, I´m just not visiting here, I´m part of.:)

    I'm only a member here. I've lurked on TDPRI, StratTalk, and TalkBass also, but this was the only place I've felt like I belonged.

    Squier Talk and here. Seems to me to be similar groups of people with a similar mindset
