« on: October 21, 2009, 04:53:02 PM »
I got this periodic mail from Music Ground (from Leeds, I believe?!), informing about the products they sell (usually pricey vintage guitars and amps) and sometimes "priceyer" pedals...
Look at this one!!!

Excuse my ignorance, but who's this guy? And what bands has he played in?  :P

Anyway, the price is ridiculous for sure. Mucho mojo!  8)

Hey Guys, I love shit like this!

No 1, it's gives rich people something to spend their money on and reminds us that they're still stupid and that having lots of money really isn't a great sign of intelligence  :icon_eek:

No 2, it means if we ever get in trouble and need quick cash we can just get hold of the local popstar and help them sell off a little more of whatever soul they may or may not have left  :icon_biggrin: :icon_lol:

No3 it's a sure sign, if one was ever needed, that being brave, resourceful and clever as well as having your tongue firmly planted in your cheek is the easiest way to make people throw money at you. True?

Hi,

I like his tone in Ziggy Stardust & Aladdin Sane, he was a fantastic guitarist. Some time ago I made myself a Tonebender which sounds great and I spent 15$ including the box and 3pdt, but £369 is just madness :icon_eek:

AWESOME! How did I ever play a single note before the Jack White Commemorative Burst Box!!

You think that someday someone might make a Meg White drum machine that plays in a sloppy unpredictable manner?

As much as I love Mick Ronson and the MK1, I just can't get behind a signature model for a man who's been dead for 16 years.  I also don't believe that they had access to Mick's original Tone Bender, but that they're just making  assumptions about what was inside.
