    Default All Apologies...at least to Andrew

    As some of you know, I've given AT a little bit of shit for his Sustainer/Shirtless issues. While it's been fun, I've realized that my hypocrisy knows no limits.

    I must be honest...I bought a Jackson PC-1 guitar. Great guitar, lovely neck, awesome sounds. It does, however, have a Sustainer in the neck pickup. I've had it for a week and each time I play it I feel guilty. Not because I've teased Andrew, but because I realize to achieve the full effect of the Sustainer, I need to be Shirtless.

    So, I've broken down, removed the shirt and have come to experience the unbridled joy of playing a Sustainer equipped guitar.

    To Andrew, I apologize. To the rest of the Guitar Room, the Sustainer is alot of fun. Now I know why Eddie never wore a shirt when using his!

    I feel better getting this off of my (bare) chest! God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change...

    What in God's holy damnation does having a sustainer and playing one...have to do with playing guitar with your shirt off!?!?


    Wait...I just got it. Because eddie always had his shirt off...while playing it in 2004....AH! LOL...I get it...

    Well the Wolfgang I've been refinishing that had extra routing done to accommodate the Sustainer pickup and circuit board is still not completed. All I need to do, though, is wet sand, buff, and polish the body; it can then be assembled. (I started work on this damn thing 18 months ago.) But I am getting prepared... doing my pushups and crunches, tanning, and all the things that are needed to go shirtless while playing. The Sustainer has a cerebral effect, one that in essence makes you want to play shirtless. Whether or not it makes you play better is certainly up for debate. But its mind control powers are not in question. You WILL create endless feedback and sustained notes, and you WILL play shirtless.

    And now Scott has succumb to its powers. May God be with him.

    It is an electromagnetic device, like a pickup, that forces the strings to vibrate using magnetic force, instead of receiving the strings vibrations and transfering them to an amp....

    In other words, it makes the strings vibrate on their own -- and forever. Or at least until your battery runs out or until Ed's attorneys confiscate your striped copy sustainer guitar....

    I thought in order to get the full effects of a sustainer you also must have 20 year old boots with your toes sticking out.

    Thanks, but that's a Sustainiac Sustainer (witch also acts as a humbucker when not activated)............
