Good question Mark - I was wondering the same thing on Sunday after everyone left. I work as an engineer for Ernie Ball, Inc., makers of fine guitars and basses, strings, and accessories. My primary job functions are CNC mill programming, tooling design, quality assurance, and computer aided design. Mostly better, faster, cheaper, easier type of stuff. I also am involved in a lot of special projects. This week we're building a custom doubleneck 6/12-string guitar for John Petrucci of Dream Theater. My masterpiece is a completely self-contained mobile stage - check it out: http://www.ernieball.com/localheroes/stageforhire.html By the way, if anyone is an expert at setting up guitars, Ernie Ball needs somebody here ASAP to run the setup department. -Hans Mark Sottilaro wrote: > > Which leads me to my next question/thread, what do loopers do when > they're not looping?
