Tesla coil guitar amp

It may not sound that great, but I’m a big fan of any technology that allows arcs of electricity to shoot between the amplifier and the guitar during a bitching Metallica solo.

    You guys are aware Jack White shows off a Tesla coil in COFFEE AND CIGARETTES? (he doesn’t play guitar next to it though).

    Sounds more like Ministry than Metalica. And I’m still waiting for someone to wire one up to a vocoder, so we can have talking Tesla coils. Steven Hawking would definitely need to upgrade to some sort of lightning throwing monster robot body at that point.

    I say let’s get Jack White and Jack Black to compete in ‘Celebrity Air Guitar’, we can sell the idea to Fox and make MILLIONS …. millions, I tell ya …..

    and I bet Jack Black wins.
    Or maybe Jack Gray will win.

    Gary61: Agreed, especially if it’s Jack White.

    Jack White ‘plays’ guitar? Is that what the kids are calling it now?
    (and his sister, what’s-her-name, ‘Off White’??)

    I know Jack Black plays guitar ….
