    Gibson...what is going on?

    I'm pretty sure the Stratocaster headstock design is fiercely protected. Don't know whether they had to sue though.

    Stratocaster - Try again? Or punt...

    Me too. I love the Strat headstock, especially the large one. So glad Charvel is under the Fender umbrella and can use their headstock.

    Stratocaster - Try again? Or punt...

    I like my MIM 24 fret Charvel (HH and FR). It has the Full-Shred in the bridge, works really well. You'd think it's high output (from the name) but I'm pretty sure it's actually lower output than the JB. No issues with fret end quality here.

    Announcing the FM3 Amp Modeler/FX Processor!

    I really like the usefulness of two manual level controls for live (e.g. on the III). One level knob for FOH that I don't touch anymore after the mixer set his levels, and another one for my stage wedge if I have to fine tune during the gig. Can this be done with the FM3, and how would I use...

    Guitar Setup and how setup affects Axe-Fx

    If you listen to this very well made video by the mighty Keith Merrow, I think it will be hard to defend the position that pick-ups don't make a huge difference, or differently put, can sound very different. But you be the judge, I'll not engage in an argument. He's even only comparing Seymour...

    John Petrucci's JP2-C Settings

    He also doesn't use a noise gate, and always runs stereo. I believe he uses the Axe-Fx Stereo Delay to go to stereo and then from there into a pair of Mesas. (That's what I remember from JPGU 2.0).

    I'm pretty sure GG uses the AX8 frequently, if nothing else than for practicing and demos while teaching. At JPGU 2.0 last year he'd often build a backing track on the fly with the looper, to demo the concept he was talking about. Judging from how sure-footed he was on that I'd say he uses it...

    Any Bass Players using the AX8?

    I'm interested in this topic too. I have a III and play guitar, but I'm curious for my bass player. What do bass players with an AX8 use for amplification (not interested to know about in in-ears)? A wedge or other FRFR like for guitar, or more likely a power amp and dedicated (bass) cabinet?
