A sketch from life, in the age of cell-phone photography is, I would guess, pretty rare. You are lucky.

There is nothing cheap about the way this pedal is built. I have no complaints about Behringer mics and mixers. I should add that everything imported into Australia is not cheap here.

By appearances, this pedal should be a good choice. Its solidly constructed and very neat and tidy inside. But it has an annoying feature.

The linkage between the pedal and the pot is a sliding cl ...

If the $800 and $250 guitars have the same pickup, the difference might be negligible to the ear, but that is probably not going to be the case due to variables. You will pay for design, finish and el ...

Here's a version on a pedal guitar, but the tune has only three chords so it should not be too hard to pick up. Its a good learner piece, but in C6 the only wrinkle will be finding a flat 7.

Never mind the guitars . . .look at that table!!!!! Mr. Green

But seriously, it is such a subjective question. To my ears, I have to say yes. A vintage guitar is not a requirement.
