Re: some loop content

That's pretty funny about the sustainer bit. Fripp plays their guitars,
Reeves Gabrels uses the sustainer. You CAN purchase their sustainer
separately (as i found out in an issue of Japan's Young Guitar Mag.) but it
is around $400.00 for it. It'd be better off to get the guitar and use the
body for experimentation's. Call Fernandes and ask their help.
