Finally. I've been hoping someone would say this. All of the "innovation" with electric solid-body guitars pretty much started in the 50s and ended by the 80s. We're still using the same crap wood and metal stringed instruments that we always were. We still rely on magnetic pickups and some kind of amp device to make sound. Wood and strings are still wood and strings. Frets are still frets. A few guys have gotten cute with bridge designs, but it's still all essentially the same as it always was. Why does it have to be protected?
