    Now, correct me if I'm wrong, but the picture does not seem to match the text, right? :lol::lol::lol:

    No, I did not click on the link.

    With a website called specimenproducts.com, it has to be legit.

    The ad at the top of my page says "Learn to Play Guitar Without Thinking!"

    No thanks, I get accused of that already.

    Remember, you can over tip her, just don't tip her over!

    I've heard tone does not exist in a vacuum....

    I mean, does anyone actually click these links? Not only are they really shady, but who knows what fun viruses and malware await those poor souls who actually do.

    Not to say every ad is crap, but there are a TON out there which are. Use an ad blocker or just ignore them would be my advice.

    Reminds me of the Amazon Chinese generic tube screamer page with a picture of the pedal next to an acoustic guitar (no pickup.) Even shows the person jamming out on the acoustic with the pedal sitting next to them....not plugged into anything....

    The person's probably supposed to scream at the pedal.

    You need to have an empty paper towel / toilet paper tube; you have to scream through the tube. Hence, tube screamer. Right? :lol::lol::lol:

    Of course not. And nobody is returning calls for expired auto warranties that never existed, or student loan forgiveness for 70 year olds that never borrowed money, etc. But, they all can sell their customers that they are making thousands of "contacts" each day. Vacuum-shaped amp repair touched hundreds of prospective customers, just in this thread. Marketing department budgets perk up...

    Clearly, that is an amp, not a guitar.

    Don’t be silly. It doesn’t look anything like an amp.
