    Sadly I sold my Lightning Bolt with Vivians signature on the back of the headstock back in the early 90's. I bought this one due to missing her.

    decomposing foam in ATA case

    I already had foam from a previous project. I bought external corner casters, bumpers and a handle from them. WAY nicer to roll that flight case through airport and town thsn to carry it long distances.

    decomposing foam in ATA case

    I just got done doing that to an anvil guitar flight case. The foam was almost a powder. I used a 3" putty knife to scrape it out. I didn't bother trying to remove all of the old gooey adhesive. I just discovered DIYroadcases and they were awesome to deal with if you need any hardware.

    Need some input from you guys.

    You have golden ears. I'd trust your judgement as to whether a quad pair of 80's g12-65 ;) would sound better in a "factory" cab or one of yours. Many people "hear" with their eyes, so from a marketing viewpoint it would be hit or miss for the general public.

    My recording presets vs the FRFR I just bought.

    As long as you don't have phase reversal, it might work ok. The best answer is plug it in and see if it works for YOU. I'm betting you'll need to change your BMT settings as cranking 85-95dB will definitely change the tone compared to listening through monitors.

    Dr Bonkers' Guide to Using Fractal Axe-FX 3 for Bass

    After watching Leon's tone matching video yet again it got me wondering if I could use that technique with the xlr out on the back of the GK instead of a load box? Since the GK straight to the board sounds great, I'm thinking that would be a good way. What do you guys and gals think?
