Just saw a guitar that has caught my attention (see Tele Board) that has a Hipshot installed on it. Although I have always thought Clarence's playing was spiritual, wonder how Albert Lee does it, and have recently realized how good of a picker Brad Paisley is, I'm a just ok player at best. Mainly play to entertain myself these days, or sometimes with a buddy or two. Could I ever learn some simple uses for the Hipshot? All of the above are killer players. Heck, I rarely use a vibrato on the few guitars I own that even have one. Basic question: for a guy like me, would the Hipshot just get in the way, or would I ever actually learn to use the thing?
