A recent study shows that 8% of teenagers listen to nothing but music with guitars in it. Put this in your sig if you're one of the 92% who isn't a close-minded moron.

Ebow is an little electronic device that apparantly gives infinite sustain and a sort of strings/synth sound to the guitar by emitting something whilst being held up to a pickup.
