    Rolling Stones- shady band security, never again.

    Just saw they added a show at the Hard Rock in Florida, 7000 seats. Wonder how much those tix are going for? I'm over going to stadium shows, except for bands where I'm there for the whole experience and don't need to actually see the band. I love the Stones, although I don't really care...

    Single vs multiple volumes

    My first electric had 2 knobs, but all the rest are singles. Along with being able to fine-tune the middle position, what I like is that I can be playing one on 6-8 and have the other at 10 to use as a boost when I switch. But overall, I've been using single knob guitars for decades.

    Agreed with both of those. If there were more scenes, I'd rather be able to get at them directly. Having two "banks" of scenes doesn't seem useful to me, but I guess it's kind of like the way Views are used on the FCs... I can't see myself ever needing more than 8 scenes, but I don't play...

    So what's the deal with 24 fret guitars

    I have one PRS SE w/ 24 frets that I got for a couple of songs where I needed that high E, as others have mentioned. But I generally prefer the fatter tone of the neck pup on 22s.

    Ticketing Software

    I built a website on Wix for a client who sells tix to her events (not music-related but same idea) so I know you can do it there. IIRC it links to her Paypal and she can refund in the event of weather since they're outdoors. Most also can connect to Stripe, Square, Venmo, credit cards, etc...

    What would you use an external switch for?

    I'm thinking of either tempo/tuner on one and presets layout on the other, or I may use them for Vol +/-

    I don't understand this design decision either. I'd love to be able to have a 2-button switch and then 2 EXP pedals (one dedicated for volume, other could be wah, whammy, etc).

    FM9 -- I'll Miss the Rhino Bars

    I would prefer some sort of force field that projects a few feet out in front of the unit and keeps all objects like feet and liquids away. But a missile system would be much more rock'n'roll. I generally do this anyway, as I tap w/ my right foot and like having my most used buttons on the right.

    My first electric was (is) a 1980 Ibanez AS-200, essentially a 335 copy.

It was my #1 for a number...
