I'd say the 1spot has become what it is largely because it's so dependable, and it flat-out works. It's like the Bad Monkey overdrive. You can buy it anywhere, it's affordable, and you can count on...

I've seen a line of no-brand kids/beginner guitars with this concept already, that cost around $50 on their own. Might as well save your decent guitar, and buy that instead.
