The Ultimate Manufacturer List

Couldnt find anything like it so decided to start one up...

Making a master list of everything guitar related.. Reason being how many times have you seen something like a boutique pedal or unique guitar only to forget to get the website of it and its lost forever. Well now you have a place to go. This would also help as a quick reference when we need to generate a quick list for users asking questions about hard to find gear.

The format...

Company Name:
Description:
Interesting fact:
Favorite Pedal:
Link:

The example..

Company Name: Protone Pedals
Description: Boutique Pedals out of Texas
Interesting Fact: Makes the Rusty Cooley and Jason Becker Pedal
Favorite Pedal: Bodyrot and Rhino
Link:http://www.protonepedals.com/

So start posting them up and I'll add them to the list. From main stream to boutique to one off. If its guitar related and you think someone will be interested in it post it.

(Updated to post 184 page 10)
