In this episode, we compare three guitars at different price points:
Blue Monkey (Warmoth - $1500)
We also draw conclusions about the effectiveness of the new Dry n’ Glide product from Graph Tech Guitar Labs, which is designed to help mitigate friction caused by sweaty hands, a topic of some interest here on the East Coast.
We discuss the merits of cleaning corrosion from pickup polepieces, and discuss how it can be accomplished safely.
And we do a little playing, of course.

Dave Scott is a pro player who possesses many skills, all of which he performs at a very high level. He is a nice guy, and seriously funny, especially when he’s had a few beers, at which times he also gets pretty smiley.
George Ellison is a former guitar tech and is also a guitar player. He knows a few things about guitars, so we let him be in the videos.
Scott Leslie is our at-large producer, and Ben Gillis is our camera operator.
