There was this guy who came into the store two or three years ago. Immediately he went to the back of the shop, where the most expensive guitars are. After two or three tryouts, he wanted to get something really loud. When I explained to him that loud doesn't mean good, he was really pissed. "I want the  biggest sound, I want the biggest tone. I don't care about the amp !" I replied: "a guitar, without an amp is like a couple without sex. No sex, no couple. Now all you have to decide is: Do you want loud sex or good sex ?
