Probably a dirty pot, you should squirt a little contact cleaner in it. Swish it around, rock the pedal back and forth, and that should clean it up. Its a common problem with wah pedals. Its not that they're defective, its just somewhere from point A. The Factory and point B. Your house it found som...

Yeah, it seems you dont understand how a floyd works. This should clear everything up. http://www.ibanezrules.com/tech/setup/index.htm Those springs on the back dont "tighten" the tremolo. They are to counter-balance the strong force applied by the STRINGS. If the springs are too loose, then the tre...

Thats why you see warnings on all sort of packages that say "May Contain Peanuts" or "Processed on machinery that also processes peanuts" or something to that effect.

Re: Vai & Vegetarianism

The comments about cows not having feelings or experiencing pain is just silly. Its not very hard to look at an animal and determine whether or not it is experiencing pain.
