    NGD - Charvel

    I've been thinking about some sort of inexpensive Tele for a while now; leaning towards either a Nashville so I can get the 5-way tones, or a G&L ASAT (because they're probably much better than a Fender at that price ;-) ... but this looks sweet. I generally prefer 3 pups but with the options...

    Will the Steelers go undefeated?

    My wife hopes so. I do not ;-) Steelers-Chiefs for the AFC title would be a great game either way. They've got 4 games remaining against good teams so it could be tough. (did I just say the Browns are a good team??!!!!??)

    Real or fake?

    The perspective and having a rug, a blanket, and a floor behind it makes it look kind of odd. I never understand the people who take pictures of their guitars w/ backgrounds that make it hard to see the guitar, outdoors, by the pool, too dark, etc... aren't you trying to make it look as good...

    Why Fractal is good for my sanity... and my wallet.

    I've always been into versatility. Most of my guitars have mods to get more sounds; I've used various modelers since way back. I like things to sound authentic, but I've only played a handful of amps/cabs/pedals enough to really know how they should sound. So when I heard about the AFX (from...

    Mini LCD wish - bigger text or bold

    True, but the whole point is that the board IS so powerful and most people * don't * use the same buttons for every preset. If I did that, it'd be easy to remember it and wouldn't need any labels at all.

    Yep, look for iaresee's presets for sure. Another tip: Jerry turned up the treble on his amps, and rolled off the tone knob on his guitar to compensate and get that fat midrange. What kind of guitar are you using?
