    They All Sound the Same, It's About Workflow

    Well they absolutely all sound more or less different to me. Not really giving a shit about accuracy, but the bottom line for me is the sound/feel aspect (the latter not able to judge here). For me the ranking would be 4, 1, 3 and 2 whereby 4 and 1 sound the closest matched to me.

    Intonation with Axe tuner: Why doesn't it work?

    The Axe is best suited for intonation setups. Precondition that said guitar is generally setup correct (action, saddle, strings, neck relief ...). A guitar is far from perfect what fret board layout is concerned, therefore some tempering of the intonation may be necessary to get things...

    Can someone help me with my pickups?

    Possibly wired out of phase... Check the wire coding.

    Wish Photos of the Amps and pedals in the edit program

    Just my 2 cents: a total wast of resources (human, cpu and memory) and cost driving just for a pretty GUI? Perfectly happy as is.

    Convince Me Not to Sell My Axefx

    If you need convincing then you obviously don’t know what you want. Sell it and go with whatever floats your boat.

    There’s a company (Schaeffer AG) here in Germany that supplies a free CAD-Software to do offline design/development of faceplates and housings, includes libraries for diverse connectors and such, excellent and easy to use…even calculates the costs. They have a wide variety of materials to...

    Other hobbies!

    My homegrown dual-mono-plexi with switchable dual rectifiers and dual eff-loops, all tube (except for the switchable silicone rectifiers of course). I'd say my hobby is hobbies in all directions, many in technical and creative directions.

    Absolutely speechless, didn’t see that one coming! The biggest inspiration in my musical career, still remember that jaw-dropping moment back in 78, the first time I heard eruption (amongst others), one of the biggest tipping-points in rock history, especially for tone hunting guitarists. RIP...

    DIY Monday - mods to my Epi LP

    To the subject of Epiphone: about 8 years ago I decided I wanted a Gibson SG (61 style) so I went to the local RockShop and tested a few they had there, when I saw this Epiphone Elitist SG (61 style) hanging on the wall there and decided to give it a whirl. It was an immediate no brainer that...
