i've always been wondering about this, but how did EMG come up with the numbers for their pickups? like, what's the signifigance (sp?) of the numbers? was it the number of times it took for them to get the right tone out of them? dont tell me that 81 are more for bridge and 85's/60's/and 89's are more for neck. I want to know why THOSE numbers?

my only guess would be that its the year it came in, but that doesnt make much sense for the 60 (or does it?). anyways, theres tons of questions you could ask, why the bugera 6260? why the JCM800? why the epiphone G-400?

Head and Cab for $130? You don't need a head and cabinet, you need a psychological examination.

Whay do knobs go to 10? Who came up with that? Why are tubes called tubes? I think they are really bulb shaped. What does the "Roll" mean in "Rock and Roll." Thats a funny word..."Roll." Say, "roll."
