    As promised, the Debate has been rescheduled. The new date/time is Sunday, the 4th, at 7PM (Mountain Time). Rules for the debate will be announced when it begins.

    The Election will occur on Monday the 5th of November. Candidates are encouraged to link the election to their social media. Only members will be able to cast a vote.

    I appreciate that you guys have used the election of the DGT Club President as a way to blow off steam, keep it playful, and remember that, in the end, we are all friends. The "Other" election (the discussion of which remains strictly forbidden) has failed to produce the same result.

    As out moderator points out, this is an international club. Here we see that the H/T ticket intends to hog all of the DGTs for the American market and 'dem ferriners', to use words overheard by our wiretaps, can just go without.

    aristotle/rugerpc recognizes the internationality of the club and the appeal of the DGT to all the peoples of the Earth (even bass players). As proof of our international commitment, one only needs look to our very first staff posting of Albrecht Smuten as the VP candidate's international hit man - er - chief of staff.

    We are also confident that the people will also recognize that the Equal Temperament Party's VP candidate is pro-active in seeking new DGT model choices by his commissioning of the DGDGBD DGT he is now testing. That he bought it in a sweaty panic due to constant harping from the other campaigns about being some type of carpetbagger without credentials has not a word of (verifiable) truth.

    Attached, please find a job application to re-staff our 501 C3.

    Failure to respond to the questions might be a good strategy. The debate will not be a deciding factor for your participation - though it may impact the decision of the voters.

    Either way, don't blame anyone for your decision. Quit on your own terms.

    I thought it was because Craig nominated me for the Green party's FBI position, J. Edgar hoover was a well known (and loved) cross-dossier too.

    Well, the rumors of J. Edgar Hoover's cross-dossiering are at least unsubstantiated....

    Oh, you can taunt, but I am not a quiiter, and I won't stop quitting just because of this! What kind of leader would I be if I were so easily manipulated???

    More proof of current President's disloyalty to DGT and PRS in general. Please, carry on, you're making it easier for us.

    I agree. Multiple thread/forum spamming is really not the behaviour of a President.....

    Unbelievable. The current Prez posts a pic of a GIBSON as his bona fide??!?!?

    And the Empire Eriza Green candidates edit their posts when they are caught with their pants down?!??

    I wonder how the electorate stands for the shenanigans.

    Well, you won't find that at the Equal Temperament Party. We have a job before us - the revitalization of the DGT Club. It starts with embracing new members instead of just guarding the door like an angry old man trying to send soup back at a deli. All clubs need new members and new ideas to survive. Granted, the DGT is very nearly the planet's perfect guitar. But even perfection has its unsightly 'beauty marks.'

    In addition to not touching the existing DGT line with a 10 foot pole as to changes, we also see the need to broaden the base by offering new models and options along side of the venerated line.

    We are proud to present another prototype - the DGTØ.



    Gone are the distracting knobs and switches. Controls are now via a breakthrough Brain Scan/Brain Switching module - BS for short. With this evolutionary interface, you merely need think about what you want the electronics to do and it happens.

    Superfast and noisless switching between pickups, coil tapping, tone control and volume are only a Brain Storm away.

    The BS DGTØ. Revolution. Evolution. Pure BS.

    aristotle/rugerpc - choices for everyone.

    An excellent idea, Rango!!

    Do I take this as an acceptance to be the aristotle/rugerpc Equal Temperament Party's nominee for Secretary of Mods?

    Dear Candidates for the office of DGT Club President (and respective cabinet members),

    In an effort to help me prepare for Sunday night's debate I have prepared a series of sample questions. I would like you to take this time to determine how you, collectively, will coordinate a response to each of the debate questions. In all cases, your final answer is to be posted by the person running for the top seat. It is the responsibility of the Presidential Candidate to ensure his response speaks for his entire party.

    You will have 10 minutes to post (and edit) your response. Once the 10 minute window has expired, you will each have 5 minutes (in a free-for-all format) to retort. That 5 minute window will INCLUDE comments from members of the audience. In all cases, I will notify you when responses are allowed and when the window closes. Responses posted outside the proper windows will be deleted.

    There will be 4 questions, in total. These questions have been carefully selected from hundreds of possibilities. What remain are questions that represent the very pinnacle of pseudo-cork-sniffery.

    The debate will begin, promptly, at 7PM (Mountain) this Sunday evening and will end exactly 60 minutes later. It will be held in THIS thread. Quote people often, they're likely to flip-flop on you.

    Remember... don't ruin the fun for everyone else by dipping your toes into "other" elections. So far, you guys have been Rockstars. Thank you
    .

    So here is your first sample debate question. There is no time restriction for response.

    ★ ☆★ ☆★ ☆★ ☆★ ☆★ ☆★ ☆★ ☆★ ☆ ★ ☆★ ☆★ ☆★ ☆★ ☆★ ☆★ ☆★ ☆★ ☆

    SAMPLE QUESTION #1:
    Mr. Grissom's guitar, the David Grissom Trem (DGT), is based upon a carefully massaged recipe that was developed over two decades. While it's control layout, neck carve, finish, and pickups are unique to the DGT model, many DGT owners just can't seem to nail that signature "Grissom Sound". This fact seems to underscore the notion that tone has as much to do with the player as it does his tools. And so, it begs the question... how much of Mr. Grissom's tone should we attribute to his amazing head of raven-black curls? Which haircut sounded best?
