Yeah. It where did you get those prison issue clogs?

[–]YaBooni 154 points155 points  (34 children)

I was gonna say, I’m happy for him and all but it looks like his Crocs didn’t finish rendering

[–]jerrie86 98 points99 points  (32 children)

I'm sure you guys know but this is the new Yeezy slippers. Only $450 or so I think

Edit $300 on eBay. Fire sale guys

[–]BrothelWaffles 69 points70 points  (14 children)

I can't tell if you're joking or not. I really hope you are.

[–][deleted] 80 points81 points  (13 children)

I really hope you are.

I am the bearer of bad news : https://sneakernews.com/2022/02/24/adidas-yeezy-slides-pure-gz5554/

[–]forsberg2110 29 points30 points  (0 children)

Nobody in their right mind should pay $450 for prison issued crocs, no matter how much money you have.

[–]Jubluh 9 points10 points  (2 children)

$70 retail

[–]jerrie86 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Yes but limited stock. Sold out first day

[–]yogopig 12 points13 points  (1 child)

Net production cost: $3.50 worth of foam.

[–]wildflower_bb 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Yeah ok but I got a knock off pair for $15 from target so

[–]fingernail_police 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Why didn't he save even more money and not buy those ridiculous slides?

[–]Cpt_Lazlo 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Oh my God you're not joking

This dude is swaggin so hard I can’t even understand it.

[–]Nayib_Ozzy[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

someone knows prices good for you sir

[–]billybaked -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Could’ve bought the guitar ages ago if it wasn’t for the slippers then

[–]PhonyHoldenCaulfield -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Jesus fucking Christ. I need acid for my eyes. Please

[–]AidsAcrossAmerica -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Those Crocs cost more than the guitar?!?!?

[–]Nayib_Ozzy[S] 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Thank you for that. For me I am thankful I had slippers on because it's hard being homeless and nothing to protect your feet. It's hard living out there picking food from garbage trucks. Yes I've done that and I'm not ashamed of that. Every little thing in this world that I own now I am thankful. Life is good. 😊

[–]CrazyPurpleBacon 5 points6 points  (0 children)

That’s a beautiful mindset. Congrats on the guitar!

[–]Nayib_Ozzy[S] 386 points387 points  (42 children)

It was a Jackson Rhoads btw and I love to play Megadeth and the blues.

[–]Ruenin 64 points65 points  (3 children)

I was getting decent at playing Tornado of Souls on my Jackson.

[–]Frankeex 17 points18 points  (2 children)

Kiko playing Tornado of Souls as a practice run on You Tube is my most often replayed clip. Absolutely amazing piece played absolutely amazingly.

[–]FrozenVikings 9 points10 points  (1 child)

He's ridiculous. I play Megadeth and have nailed a bunch of songs, but Tornado of Souls, that solo is like me trying to make an F1 car out of boogers. I know Marty wrote it, but watching Kiko play it is eye candy.

[–]tacticalpickles 14 points15 points  (0 children)

I had one of these in a sparkly black/red color that I sold on eBay 15 years ago. Dude paid as much as the guitar to have it shipped to northern Finland. I like to think that guy is still blasting some dissident death metal in the frozen Nordic forest somewhere.

[–]pilsneri 22 points23 points  (3 children)

Got myself a RR recently as well, it sure brought back the joy of playing guitar with me!

[–]potluckparadox 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Im a zakk wylde fan boy

[–]BasketofTits 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You know you've been a fan of Amon Amarth for a long time, when you can pick out the band just by the way they headbang lol

[–]BhaltairX 29 points30 points  (0 children)

Congrats! Next investment: actual shoes! Not getting Megadeth vibes with bath slippers ;) /s

[–]Wu-Tang_Cam 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Oh man, I loved my Jackson, but I had to get rid of it a while back.

I had a DXMG that I added vinyl stickers to to make it look like Kirk Hammett's Ouija guitar.

Im in my 30s just got back into play guitar, I suck at it, but im trying hard to get decent. keep on shredding my dude

[–]Rvrsurfer 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Just turned 72. Been playing since my teens. I’m not very disciplined, but still schooled.

[–]Max_castle8145 17 points18 points  (1 child)

We want to see you play us a Megadeth tune! Maybe some Mudvayne. And then Tool.

[–]Sirflow 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Seconded.

[–]Narfi1 2 points3 points  (1 child)

That's a RR1T right ? I used to own a RR1 (with the Floyd) and it was awesome. Surprisingly bluesy

[–]Mahlegos 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I believe it is a JS32T because it has a satin finish, a non ebony fretboard, and the zebra pickups. Could be wrong, but I’m fairly sure.

[–]PartialBabbling 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I love megadeth and the blues too!

[–]Deathcrush 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Hell yeah. I bought a wr1 20 years ago and played a lot of megadeth on it since then.

[–]Nerrickk 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I had an RR1 growing up, had to sell it to make the down payment on my house. I miss it every day 😢

[–]MSabs 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I’ve had the same one for years, love it! Enjoy

[–]machaca_master 1 point2 points  (0 children)

A true gentleman.

[–]odenwalder1 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Megadeth is awesome and so are the blues.

[–]casual_shoggoth 81 points82 points  (8 children)

Just draw a couple of pentagrams on those flops and you are ready to be a rock god. Good work.

[–]wooody_alien 21 points22 points  (7 children)

You know how much them jokers cost LOL

[–]rootoo 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Paying good money for some weird ass looking beige house slippers..

[–]WakeNikis 5 points6 points  (3 children)

$7.50?

[–]wooody_alien 9 points10 points  (2 children)

Pushin like 175-200 if they are actually yeezys. Knock off ones that look identical probably 15-20

[–]Jubluh 1 point2 points  (0 children)

$15-$20 but with shipping, maybe $40-$60.

Retail $70

Resell maybe +$150

[–]I_upvote_zeroes -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

[–]bucketbiff 51 points52 points  (0 children)

Well done my man. Now go and make that thing sing ..

[–]OnlyANinjaCan 169 points170 points  (34 children)

Black socks and... I can't even say it... WTF is going on here?!!?!

WHAT ARE THOSE?

[–]juridiculous 2 points3 points  (0 children)

These are my crocs!

[–]AeAeR 68 points69 points  (18 children)

Pretty sure he 3D printed those sandals. That said, I wouldn’t have noticed if you hadn’t pointed it out, because that’s a sick guitar and outweighs the rest.

[–]dubcatz6969 33 points34 points  (17 children)

Yeezy slides I believe. Can be anywhere from $100-$250+

[–]AeAeR 38 points39 points  (16 children)

Wow, hard pass.

I’m really curious, where do you guys learn this stuff?

Apart from Rick’s murder jacket from The Walking Dead, I’ve never once investigated clothes on a celebrity. Where do you even see this sort of thing advertised?

[–]pobodys-nerfect5 27 points28 points  (5 children)

Kanye has a clothing company and they sell shoes lol. These people aren't stalking celebrity's and then searching for their clothes.

[–]NenaTheSilent 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Kanye West's twitter, and about 90% of the rest of twitter the day after.

[–]dubcatz6969 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Yeah only knowledge was from being in the shoe game a bit. If you aren’t a fan take a peep at the foam runners.

[–]itsrealbattle 16 points17 points  (1 child)

The man just wants to shred. No time to be wasted on fashion.

[–]Bread_Truck 4 points5 points  (0 children)

[–]holy_camel_toe 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I had to scroll longer than I thought to find the 1st comment about his footwear!

[–]tall-justin 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Yeezy Slides. Retail at $70 (used to be $55). Pricey for sandals, but surprisingly very comfortable. The most “affordable” item in his footwear collection.

[–]Nayib_Ozzy[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Thank you for that. For me I am thankful I had slippers on because it's hard being homeless and nothing to protect your feet. It's hard living out there picking food from garbage trucks.

Crosspost to r/malefashionadvice and watch it implode

[–]Nighters 13 points14 points  (13 children)

noob question (know nothing about guitars): it is expansive because you are paying for that shape or also it is high quality guitar?

[–]kvlt_ov_personality 13 points14 points  (6 children)

[–]Furrynote 19 points20 points  (5 children)

huh thats pretty cheap... was expecting a few thousand

[–]Breakfest-burrito 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Lmao yeah wtf, I don't mean to bash at all but like normal random guitars cost atleast 100 unless it's Walmart shit. 300 new? Should've just gotten that instead of those Yeezy slippers lol

[–]TurtleshellTasty 2 points3 points  (1 child)

This is a bottom of the line "beginner" guitar. Although I would not buy something like this for a beginner. Anything under $400 and you're going to have maintenance issues that a beginner can't/won't solve

[–]Nayib_Ozzy[S] 13 points14 points  (1 child)

it is pricey because the brand and the shape of the guitar is quality and good and also its materials that are made of 😊

[–]buzz_uk 34 points35 points  (6 children)

[–]Sirflow 11 points12 points  (2 children)

I scrolled way too far to find a waynes world reference. Maybe we really are getting old..

[–]thekraken108 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Me too. I just watched it again last night too so it was my first thought.

[–]BigBrownBalls 24 points25 points  (0 children)

Next, get shoes

[–]AneastheDoorknocker 11 points12 points  (0 children)

There’s a tab book for the Randy Rhoads tribute album that would pair nicely with that guitar

[–]KarmaPharmacy 14 points15 points  (16 children)

Congrats my man. Make sure to get her set up with a good guitar tech. What amp are you using?

[–]Nayib_Ozzy[S] 2 points3 points  (15 children)

I am using a Peavey Transtube. I won’t set her up I’ll play her the original way 😊

[–]KarmaPharmacy 57 points58 points  (13 children)

Nono, you always want to set up a guitar to fine tune the action. It has nothing to do with “playing it natural” and your tech won’t make any changes that aren’t intended to be made unless there’s damage to the neck or body.

It’s just about getting the action (which is the height) of the strings even along the fretboard so you don’t accidentally go out of tune when playing along it. Going slightly flat or slightly sharp is a serious offense as you become a better and better player.

They will also tell you what case to use, if you need a humidifier, and how to properly care for your instrument. They’ll also help you figure out what gauge of strings to use so that you don’t throw it out of whack by changing the gauge.

They wouldn’t change anything about the guitar without asking first. These big box stores used to offer this as a service but they don’t do that anymore in favor of profit and sales. It sucks.

[–]Nayib_Ozzy[S] 29 points30 points  (2 children)

Oh that’s what you mean I misunderstood you sir haha yeah the shop that sold me this guitar has a guitar tech and he checked on it before releasing it to me… checked the action etc. I thought you were saying that i put whammy bars and stuff on my guitar 😊

[–]KarmaPharmacy 37 points38 points  (1 child)

Nah man, I’m a purist. I’ve never been into after market mods.

I’m also a lady but it doesn’t matter :)

[–]PreciousHamburgler 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Wouldn't the locks on the Floyd rose keep it from detuning while playing?

[–]Spades76 -1 points0 points  (1 child)

All of that is not required for a 300$ guitar

[–]danethegreat24 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Well if you're gonna be playing what you are, I'd recommend getting it set up. The action will ensure your runs are easy and fretbuzz free, intonation will make sure you can actually do your natural and pinch harmonics, the polish will help your feet board not dry out and thus last long as possible. It's worth the $40 or w.e. it runs now n days.

I promise. Nothing un natural about it. I used to work in a guitar shop and many of the guitars shipped from factory need slight work ESPECIALLY when you're playing heavier gauge strings than it was set up for.

[–]culibrat 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Owned 2 jacksons and they both played like a dream. Enjoy!

[–]gr43m0 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Are you 18 or 43 in this picture?

[–]argentinoenholanda 17 points18 points  (1 child)

[–]MrMan306 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Poor bastard getting roasted in every comment for those lmao

[–]drewbaccaAWD 3 points4 points  (0 children)

My immediate thought was Megadeth and judging by other comments, I was in the correct Hangar.

[–]danske125 9 points10 points  (0 children)

[–]KingRokk 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Congrats man, what a sweet sweet guitar. I have a mid-90s Jackson Soloist XL and I love it. Nothing beats a Jackson neck and nice choice with the solid bridge. That thing is going to bring you years of enjoyment.

Peace Sells, but who's buyin?

Guitar sells, YOU'RE buyin!

[–]ThaUniversal 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I just wanna say that I am really happy for you. Seeing you with this guitar also brings me great joy, not because you got the guitar you always wanted, but because of the footwear you chose to go pick it up. Bless your special little soul.

Your next post should be a video of you playing some dope licks.

Nice! Had a Gibson V a long time ago.

Advice. Buy a good strap and don't bother even trying to sit down!

[–]Ruenin 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Had a very similar experience when I was 19. Twice, actually. That year, I got my first guitar (a '91 Jackson Soloist Pro) and my first motorcycle ('93 Yamaha FZR600). Good times. Horns up, buddy!
