    Migrating from a II to a III

    So I revisited FracTool again and the best thing I can do is export to HTML each patch at a time. The other formats seem to be missing the scene changes. If I go the route of recording a desktop video of me scrolling through a preset in Axe-Edit, it will make it quick to re-create as I'd be...

    Announcing the Axe-Fx II XL Plus

    Chinese guitar knock-offs... opinions?

    Lots of great opinions here. Here's my take, if companies like Ibanez and ESP can have their guitars made in Asia (including China) then there's got to be some quality factories out there. Comparing a $226 knock-off to a $2500 authentic LP may be apples and oranges to a seasoned vet but...

    Chinese guitar knock-offs... opinions?

    not when the ad says its a copy and they show photos of it being made in their chinese factory. many sellers disclose this. many don't. so if the seller is saying its "made in usa" by Gibson and authentic in every way and you receive a knock-off then its counterfeit.
