comment Does the pickup really have any effect on the guitar's distortion sound?
Another aspect of active pickups is that they are quieter than passive pickups, connecting back to the issues brought up under hum-cancelling.

comment How do you decide on a string gauge for an electric guitar?
Re: "But you CANNOT use acoustic strings on your electric guitar." I have done it. Was given a set of GHS White Bronze strings once, which I put on my 80s Tele. They worked. Many players use magnetic soundhole pickups in their acoustics, which should behave like a neck pickup on the electric. Not really what you probably want for electric guitar sounds, but they did work.

comment How can I evaluate the quality and value of a violin?
I gave few details about what details were, and this is why I said "superficially". An experienced player understands the details, which is why the best players play fine instruments and not $100 made-in-China instruments. As a fiddle owner and guitar player, though, I bow to your greater experience.

comment Why can't we play what people speak?
One of the first things that Vai did for Zappa was to transcribe his solos from the Shut Up And Play Your Guitar, to be published. Evidently, he transcribed some of the Zappa's stage banter, too. (Can't source it atm.) So him playing what his sister said is unsurprising but incredible.
