    What a money-grab! They’ll just want to sell you a Wangcaster Merkin as well!

    Of course some players suffer from sustain problems…

    Sorry. Didn’t mean to pick on anyone.

    Where’s the whammy?

    It’s always pretty sad when someone feels compelled to make the implicit explicit. (See also: Prince’s ejaculating guitar at the end of Purple Rain.)

    is there a harp counterpart? just imagine..

  16. mrfantasy says:

    I wonder if you can get it in the uncircumcised version.

    You can, but it has a perpensity to get dirtier and can be difficult to clean and tune.
