Lots and lots of talk about 'Tone', it gets treated with an almost religious reverence. Do these tone believers ever venture outside of their music rooms? Do they ever gig? I find it hard to believe they do. Every room, every stage sounds different. You do a 2 month tour playing 5 to 6 nights a week and your rig wont sound the same twice. Then you have the buggerment factor of some sound engineer making the guitar sound like he wants it in the mix. The capacitance per foot of some 6" patch cable or the materials that make up the caps in your guitar really do pale into the irrelevant. How do the tone heads deal with this? Or dont they have to?
