"Best" is a debatable word. These may be some of the most memorable or famous riffs, but are they the best? What intros did they miss?
Let’s face it: one of the most important parts of a song is its intro. A memorable intro can bring lighters out of pockets, prompt roars of recognition from a crowd and cause freeway drivers to reach

A new study proves that music can actually ease physical pain!
Music can energize, soothe or relax us. And it can also help reduce pain. Researchers found that listening to a favorite song or story helped children manage pain after major surgery.

I called about getting a setup done for my Strat. They said they charge $65 for the whole shebang (cleaning, fret work, setup, everything). There was no option to just set the bridge up and adjust the truss rod, so I said "Fine, whatever I'll just take it in". I dropped it off and the guy who took asked if I wanted to wait around or have them call me when it's ready. I said I was gonna leave and that they should call me. Then the guy said it usually takes around 10 days which made no sense to me. Why would they ask if I was gonna wait around if I had to wait there for 10 days? I left it there anyway.... over THREE WEEKS went by and I never got a call back. I went over there and they said they hadn't even touched it yet. I just took my guitar back and left. Maybe 3+ weeks is okay for some people to wait for a setup but, to me, that's just ridiculous. I didn't give them a 1 star because they weren't rude about it or anything. Also their guitar selection is kinda meh. Edit: I went back a second time and they got it done really fast. The tech was a nice guy. If you ever take a guitar in just MAKE SURE TO ASK how long it might take and hold them to it. Make a follow up call if they don't get back to you in a few days. Sometimes they're crazy backed up. The setup on my fender was actually really nice and comfortable. I'd take it there again. I'd still like to see I bigger brand variety (PRS, Ibanez, Jackson) but they've probably decided that their average customer looks for what they already have in stock.

On the waiting portion my people must have been confused and thought you meant a simple restring. Our guitar turnaround time is longer than anyone else would like currently and we are working to get it back up to where we'd like it. We have 3 techs and just brought in a 4th to work part time and help. Now the part that bothers me is the lack of communication, that's not acceptable and frankly it's not acceptable to sit 3 wks regardless. We failed there. If you want to come back, I will discount the setup or give you an option for just the bridge and truss rod and even discount that too. I will also bump you to the very front of he line and make sure the tech makes it his/her first job on the bench. Let me know if you want to take me up and we apologize for the lack of customer service we showed you. We want to be known for our customer service and we fell short on this.
