    Anyone Using Bare Knuckle on a Single Coil - Specifically Strat Style Guitar?

    I've got a custom set that Tim made up for me based on an original set of '62 strat pickups, and they're in my '62 strat re-issue. They sound exactly as I'd imagine a '62 strat to sound, but completely different from humbuckers, which is to be expected really. Can't go wrong with his pickups in...

    Downloaded patches not working

    Check to see if the patch has a user cab specified. If it does and your corresponding slot is empty, then you won't get any sound. Another favourite is if the patch has a volume block in it assigned to an expression pedal. Bypass the volume block in that case.
