Some Clarification...

WOW! the response to our feature on Gibson.com has been completely overwhelming!!! Thank you all for interest in WLPb (even from you detractors of little faith)!!!

There have been a lot of questions on various message boards regarding WLPb. Here are a couple answers/things to keep in mind:

1. No one "gigs" with the board. It's being put together by gearheads, for gearheads- a. for fun and b. so we can celebrate our passion: GEAR. The board will not be used in anyone's band or on anyone's record. We built it for fun and because we had the idea to do so.

2. The board DOES indeed sound good, believe it or not. I must admit that I had my doubts and that is why we went to the trouble to do an advance dry run- to see what would happen. The board is made up of high quality components that are produced by companies that we firmly believe in and in some cases officially endorse, such as Pedaltrain, Visual Sound, George L's, Creation Audio Labs, and Seymour Duncan, just to name a few. Additionally, we wired the entire board with George L's cable, so let that be a lesson to you of who rules the cable universe.

3. The video featured on YouTube documents a TEST RUN. It's not like we spend our time video taping our self indulgent guitar wankery hoping you like it. We don't care.

4. Design and tone are not necessarily the point. The feat is what matters. We could have done a much more elaborate design,
but it's not warranted given that that's not necessarily part of the idea.
