If you haven't noticed the Warr Guitar is an instrument and those are compositions. It is not the instrument that is necessarily tasteful, but the use of it. Now go and listen to Trey Gunn in King Crimson from '94 until 2003. He doesn't actually use it in a tasteless manner. Tony Levin in King Crimson is the same.
You can't consider an instrument tasteless. It's all about the use. That's like trying to say because I have a big paintbrush, the big paintbrush is pretentious. It's not. It's just a tool - as is an instrument.
