One Question Interviews: Boilerman

Jim (Boilerman - guitar)

SPB: What's the most overrated guitar feature? eg. whammy bars, D-Tuna?

Jim: I don't know about overrated, but my most hated guitar feature is the floating bridge. The Dan Electro guitar I use for Boilerman doesn't have one, but the guitar I learned on did and it caused me nothing but trouble as a kid. I get why they can technically be helpful, but I feel like the cons outweigh the pros on these monstrosities. They also look real goofy.
