    Wes Borland was tuning a 24 3/4" scale guitar to F# in 1999 and no one really batted an eye.

    The guy was on the cover of guitar magazines with his F# tuned guitars and was in one of the biggest bands in the world that were emulated by kids in every town in America. Perhaps guitar snobs didn't think he was a big deal but everyone else did.

    He's about the only thing i actually liked about their music. He is a solid guitarist and what he was doing at the time had a little bit more going on than your run of the mill nu-metal. I saw them on the main stage at Ozzfest '98 and was actually pretty entertained with their over-the-top show and giant toilet props. My buddy got kicked in the back of the head by a crowdsurfer and had to go to the medic tent. On his way back he got to hang with the limp bizkit guys for a while and stated they were pretty awesome and down to earth off stage.
