    This does not make any sense. sodas are relatively equal in price. I don’t know how to eliminate that factor

    Danelectro is Zevia. It’s good but you better know what you are getting into.

    They say Dr. Pepper is "a unique blend of 23 flavors".
    I say it only has ONE flavor....Mr. Pibb

    The comparison is pretty silly. If you had grown up in Memphis, you would have noticed that the corner stores in the black neighborhoods never had signs for Coca Cola or Pepsi, as it was believed that both companies supported Jim Crow laws and organizations like the KKK. These stores sported RC Cola signs - pronounced "r-o-cee cokcola".

    There may have been validity to the racial prejudice - I don't know, but it was there none-the less.

    Probably something like a Melody Maker. Gretsch and Rickenbacker too niche. Fender haven't really made an iconic student guitar like Gibson did. A Single pup, no pickguard, one vol, pine bodied Strat might have done it.

    I love rootbeer, "Barq's has sparks". Pour some salted peanuts into the bottle then you've got a rootbeer float. Would that be an Epi?
