Welcome to my APRIL FOOL pages

Once a year I launch a stupid concept into the ether on April 1st to see who falls for it...

2006
A new idea for a soft case...

2005
Troubled by low back pain and carrying all that footstool ironmongery?...

2004
Oval Augustine Guitar Strings and some really stylish packaging too...

2003
The PMPU guitar with minimal bridge torque despite having 12 strings...

2002
The European administration ruled that there are 10 semitones in the octave...

2001
The Slancelot twisted frets made big stretches easier for the left hand...

2000
It was the guitar body full of cardon dioxide, to lower the body resonance...

1999
People read about La Bellinear tapered strings, which mean a guitar's frets can be equally spaced...

1998
Visitors enjoyed proof that loud, deep bass, played on a guitar held tightly, can cure male impotence..
