    New Guitar Day! GMW Randy Rhoads Polka Dot

    I’m not sure I’m going to gig with it or not. The cheap polka dot replica I already have I’ve beat up pretty good from gigging over the last few years. Not sure I want that for this one.

    New Guitar Day! GMW Randy Rhoads Polka Dot

    Yes, it did. Besides the Floyd Rose it’s basically the exact specs of Randy’s. You can order it from GMW with some different options. 22 frets, EMG’s, ebony fretboard. Which is ideally how I would like it. But it costs about $3k.

    New Guitar Day! GMW Randy Rhoads Polka Dot

    Thanks to fellow forumite @deakle for messaging me this morning to let me know this beauty was for sale on Reverb and local to me in Houston. I messaged the guy and picked it up about 2 hours later on my way into the office. GMW serial #083. My only complaint is the 21 frets. Wish it had 22.

    I like them all for different reasons. I use the Atomic CLR’s to create my presets so it all starts with those. I guess I would choose them. But I like gigging with the Friedman’s and XiTone’s because they have a nice cab like thump to them which is great for live use.

    Yep, I sure am. So I've been using the Low/ High cuts in the Preamp section of the Cab block before this update set at 85/8500. Should I leave those as is and just fine tune with the new ones added on the Cab page or set the ones on the Preamp page back to factory defaults (20/10k I believe?)...

    Axe-Fx III Firmware Version 5.08

    Do we need to reset amp blocks for this update? There is definitely a change in the tone for my gigging presets with 5.08. Like a cut in the high end. Sounds kind of muddy. I went back to 5.07 and everything sounded great again. Loaded 5.08 back up and it's like a blanket over the tone.

    No, I use scenes. Example: Scene 1 is my Rhythm so I have the amp block set to channel B of the 5153 on Scene 1. On Scene 2 I want it to be the clean channel so on Scene 2 I set the amp block on channel A which is the green clean channel of the 5153.
