To enter the Line 6 giveaway, I’ve asked readers to tell me about their guitar gear: guitars, effects, amps,… I found this interesting to know readers tastes when it comes to guitar gear!
The sample is:
- Not really representative: If there was 5 times more entrants the landscape would have been totally different.
- Biased a little: as the prize was a Line 6 Pod HD500, it attracted many Line 6 fans.
Instead of giving you numbers, percentage, and other statistics I chose to display the result of the “survey” as a word cloud. It’s a fun, and visual way to see this. I used the Wordle website to generate this cloud.
- The Fender Stratocaster is the queen of guitars!
- The Gibson Les Paul must be the princess then…
- Their Squier & Epiphone little sisters are very appreciated.
- I thought I would see more Yamaha guitars than Ibanez… Wrong!
- The “guitar collectors” (own more than 3 guitars).
- The Copy tag in the cloud indicates that many of you have (legal) copies of Stratocaster & Les Paul from various brands.
- Amplification = Marshall.
- Effects = Boss.
- There is a lot of Line 6 gear (but I think it’s mainly due to the fact that Line 6 fans were more interested in the giveaway)
