    I think the amp is on the part of the bat you can`t see on his shoulder. And it is real and it does work because of the shape & size of the hole that`s in the bat.

    Also your national anthem comes from the "War of 1812" which you lost to us Canadians and the British. and the "Star Spangled Banner" Was actually composed by a British composer so LOL at ruining your independence day.

    Treasonous whiners!

    GullGull, if we lost the war of 1812, why the hell are we still a country? I`m pretty sure it ended in a stale mate.

    Get your facts straight troll.

    fedabog. It was the U.S that declared war. It was the U.S that invaded Canada.

    It was Canada`s role as the defenders.

    Do declare war, invade a country and end up with nothing constitutes as a loss for the invaders.

    Look up War Plan Red. It was the United States` plan to invade Canada after WWI in a possible war with Great Britain who seemed to be the biggest threat at the time.

    The Canadians considered that possibility and came up the Defense Scheme No.1 which was way more awesome than it sounds. Basically,l they would preempt the American attack by invading and taking a number of cities in the Northern U.S. throwing us off balance and playing for time so they could eventually fall back into Canada when the rest of the British Empire sent reinforcements.

    Are some of you people really trying to reason that we didn`t lose the War of 1812. Don`t make me laugh.

    We lost hard. They burned down the freaking white house for God`s sake.

    It happens. Get over it.

    Treaty of Ghent 1814: "status quo ante bellum" Sure sounds like a draw to me.

    actually gullcull is sort of right. the tune for the us anthem came from a british drinking song called "To Anacreon in Heaven" from the late 1700`s

    just about any instrument given a mic-pick up and routed through an effects processor can sound like a guitar.
