    Those tremowhammy bar things on guitars that make the strings all bendy? Hate em. Almost as much as I hate reverb.

    Haha... If my (perhaps flawed) assumption there is correct, perhaps you can post your preference as your own unpopular opinion LOL

    after combining all the opinions on this thread I have learned that there have never been ANY GREAT guitar players, ever!

    ALL amps are $h**!

    ALL guitars, whether new, modded or factory reliced are $h**!

    Yeah, that's about the sum of it. That's why opinions are like a-holes: everybody's got one, and they all stink.

    It's entertaining to see all of the musicians playing Ralph Macchio licks at NAMM.

    What’s funny to me about the whole ending of that movie is so often there is this quintessential dis of neoclassical wankery and what not and all that it lacks. But what does Ralph Machio pull out of his tush to defeat the soul-less Steve Vai? Neo Classical wankery.

    Anyone who craps on Yngwie really should study up on chops of Ralph Macchio
