On the subject of mass production, I imagine that's why Fender got out of the market. They didn't take off like Teles and Strats.

I would love one of Dave Wheelhouse's guitars but he doesn't make ...

Doing what an important person says pays better than standing on principle, which may ultimately not pay at all.

Hi Richard

If you have a lever that lowers 6 to F#, you can split that with the B pedal to give a G. This gives you three inversions of the minor triad on strings 5 6 & 8 to go with the majors. ...

Raising the D can be useful. With P6 it changes F6 to F7, and if you are using 5&6 one fret back for a 13th chord it restores the 2nd degree of the scale. I have it on P8 on my uni.
