    DigiTech RP360XP

    just FYI for anyone who cares, i asked Digitech support (who replied VERY quickly) and they said YES, you can use bass guitar with the RP360 to record, and they recommended using the Bassman amp model as a starting point

    Ebay guitar search clarity

    yup, this is the way. However, I've seen quite a few listings that would be written something like this: "Fender American Stratocaster NOT SQUIER! " and that search w/ "-squier" would omit that listing. So just know you might be missing on some auctions

    Ship more than one guitar in same box?

    if all three guitars were in their own boxes (and then put in one very large box), i think it would be fine. if i understand it correctly, two of the guitars will be in their own boxes with a third semi-hollow in a gig bag, sandwiched in between the two other boxes? That doesnt sound good to...

    Recently bought guitar showing up in Guitar Center used --- something fishy going on?

    the salesperson i'm talking to via email (the GC that has the guitar is in another state) wasnt the one who did the trade in with the original owner, and all he can tell me is that the "guitar is in like-new condition and still has the plastic on the pickguard." :dunno the suggestion of a...

    Recently bought guitar showing up in Guitar Center used --- something fishy going on?

    There is a "Just Arrived" guitar (nice strat, listed on GC's used site at around $900) that showed up on Guitar Center's used website. I emailed the store and asked for the serial number which they provided (so I could check w/ Fender on authenticity). The guitar is new enough to the store that...

    Local Ebay Item - No Local Pickup

    How would the seller prove that you received the guitar, if you did local pickup (especially if in his original listing he didnt offer local pickup as an Ebay option)? If he shipped the item, he would at least have a tracking number/receipt/etc. I imagine you could pick it up from him locally...

    Leaving your GOOD guitar at home....

    well, not really ... unless you were going to a guitar competition of some sorts and you needed your "best" guitar (fastest neck, or whatever). I think for most, the point of gigging is not limited to having the best tone possible. A large part would be just plain having a good time. And if...

    Potential Buyers asking for Serial Numbers?

    you can e-mail ESP (and other guitar manufacturers) with a serial number and they will usually respond within 1 day whether that serial number is legit or not, and if it is legit they will tell you what model and year the guitar is. i would not buy a guitar from a seller who refused to provide...
