    I was wondering where the quote, "the devil makes work for idle hands to do" comes from. At I learned something today.

    Has anybody famous ever played a wangcaster? It's probably the most famous weird guitar, but I don't think anybody significant has ever played one.

    Okay, I was about to make a joke about that last thing I just said. I'm not going to.

    Wow, I saw that guitar, or one just like it, in a reggae club in St John. I thought it was the coolest thing ever. (and...violence is bad, I get it.)

    I don't know which is weirder the LaBaye guitar or that someone actually took an L6-s willingly on stage.
