    FRFR for loud Hi Gain tone

    Matrix 1600 power amp - run two 1x12's with EV 12L's. Not really FRFR - but could be based on the EV's very neutral character. The EV's are VERY loud and while not that light - would be lighter than a 2x12 - and they can take, and love high volumes. I have a Xitone as well and its great - but...

    What's the longest time you've spent learning a song and getting it right?

    Exactly - I like to take one or two difficult measures, put the metronome on slow and work on it that way. Your learning the song and improving a technique.

    Very interesting tone wood experiment

    First video I have seen of this guy - very interesting experiments on whether tone wood matters. If you haven't seen it, its a good watch.

    Best automatic Espresso machine?

    I've tried 2 different kinds of fully automatic ones in the past 15 years - the Saeco and Nespresso. Neither one lasted more than 2 years - I went back to a Breville thats not fully automatic and it has lasted almost 10 years and still going strong. Not sure if fully auto ones have improved...

    John Mayer PRS SE Silver Sky vs Silver Sky Core

    Yeah - as much as I would like a SS - my hands don't agree with the 7.25 radius. When/if they make one with at least a 10" radius, SE or core - I will get it...

    Axe XL as a load box??

    I have recently starting using my XL in the effects loop of my amp using the 4 cable method - which I have never tried before. What I found is that I'm using the output levels on the axe to control my volume and setting my amp to a certain level ( stays around 3). But in theory, I could turn up...

    Is the Mk I now a little outdated?

    I have an XL - it still sounds great. What makes something outdated ? Is a 1959 LP outdated ? If it sounds great, it sounds great. My XL sounds as great as it did when Ares 2 came out and everyone here said " this is the best sounding firmware ever !". That hasn't changed - still sounds great !

    NGD - Filling that Tele-shaped hole in my life

    I have had an RK tele for about 5 years and love it. I actually love the Dimarzios in it. Its sounds like a hot rodded tele. The neck is a little thick for my tastes - thats the only thing . Its not a guitar I can play all night because of that. But I can play it for a few songs here and there...
