What is the value of a really good unbiased online review? To coin a phrase “priceless”. Do you get tired of typing in your query of “guitar review” and coming up with a bunch of worthless reviews. I mean ones that actually confuse you and lead you farther away from your goal. It can be infuriating and frustrating.
We all know a pancake has two sides. Well I want to hear about both sides of the pancake when I read a review. To put it into terms you understand, providing the bad points as well as the good points of a guitar is only fair to the consumer.
Lots of reviews are written by Professional Review Writers who get payed by the particular company to review their product and put the old positive sensational twist on it. Perhaps the distributor or store has reviewers to write about products, but simply put, they get payed to say positive stuff and trivialize negative issues with a product. Payed is the operative word.
To prepare an un biased review, it is vitally important that the reviewer is not receiving products like guitars and gear from said company to review . If someone has gained the credibility for a company like Fender or Gibson Guitar’s to send you guitars to review, than it seems logical to keep them happy by providing great reviews.

The products you want reviewed need to be evaluated in a manner that would bring forth some of the not so good qualities of a product.
My Brother in law is a computer guy, he works for a big computer company. He is at the Jimi Hendrix level of computers skills, yet he likes to review products before he buys them.

A good review can help solve that problem and keep some gas money in your pocket too.
