"The Relevator is a really versatile and unique guitar. All of the built-in effects, with the parameters right at your fingertips, are a noise player's wet dream! There are also a ton of tone options from the multiple pick-ups that make it good for any style. Watch out for the black button on the fuzz! It's a beast!"
