Funny gear reviews

Found this on the Guitar Center site for the S470.

...A 5-way toggle switch controlles 2 humbuckers (neck and bridge positions) and a single coil pickup (middle position). The Pickups are made by Infinity, who does Ibanez's stock pickups. They sound great through anything....

Re: Funny gear reviews

It's because Infinity pickups aren't exactly the best pickups around. Plus, Infinity pickups are made by Ibanez, not vice versa. Judging by the way you yanks talk about GC, it sounds like the guitar was reviewed by a typical GC employee.
