if the "chordmaster" had been first, I might just have been taken in. It seemed possible that you could have devised some tube-based monstrosity that would have sounded a bit like arbitrary guitar cards in 1950. Of all the "exhibits", it came closest to having the ring of truth for me.

It seems half-hearted in its attempt at authenticity. Besides, the truth is far more interesting.
