    You can bump the input trim to simulate a hotter pickup to a degree so It can kind of work. I have a Thornbucker + in the bridge of my CT with it coil tapped the tone is very convincing for the Gretchen era. For a different gain structure I just go full humbucking and add more gain and I can...

    I thought top wrapping the strings was to reduce the break angle over the saddles for the benefit of less tuning issues? I know that raising the stop bar accomplices the same result but doesn't traditionally look right.

    Dark stage solutions

    I feel this is one of the things on the AX8 that was overlooked by FAS... not sure why. The other thing I don't like is the fact that you can't see the labeling on any of the quick knobs in the dark, especially with the screen glowing as bright as it does. It would have been nice to have it...

    Do you guys think modellers change your approach to choosing a guitar pickup?

    For me it has opened up a broader choice of pickups to look at but I'm still of the camp that a lower output pickup (10k or lower) is the prefered choice as it harder to take away something that's already there then to add it with respect to output! Pickup voicing and mag choice while part of...
