I always wondered why fuzz pedals are so expensive, when they are mostly a handful of transistors and diodes.

I wonder why boss MFX don't have chorus modeled after their Dimension chorus.

I always hear that Taylor Swift inspired more girls to play guitar. When are we going to see these girls making music of their own?
Even if the piano player can't play, keep the party going.

I'd even take the denim, for some acoustic bass VI action.

Maybe the string tension would yank the bridge out? I'd be up for trying one though, love my Schecter Hellcat Baritone VI.

Not everyone who was inspired by Led Zepplin to learn guitar ended up playing for long, Even fewer modelled their careers after Zep. Yep I'm the guy who was always playing stairway in guitar stores long before Wayne's world. I never got into a band because of my mad Jimmy Page mimicking skills. Even though I'd been in a classic rock band.
