    Am I a "blues lawyer"?

    Looking forward to being a nu metal engineer in 2040

    NGD: Aristides H/06r

    In this intro video, they say that the bridge is custom designed for this guitar to provide a balanced trem effect across all of the strings. There's a little more going on than is evident at a glance.

    Mesa Mini Rec— worked a good deal. Should I grab it?

    It's a fair price but not a screaming deal or anything, I've been seeing them right at $750 for years. Get it if you want it, don't feel like you're missing out if you don't.

    Lightest tube head with an FX loop

    Mesa Mini Rectifier!

    There are guitarists who are showing up for the audience to enjoy the gig, and there are those showing up for themselves to enjoy the gig and the audience be damned. It appears that both types are present in this thread.

    Versatile Guitar For Metal

    I have to point out that a lot of metal players - classic and modern - have done it on Les Pauls. It's absolutely not necessary to change much of anything in your preferences to encompass that genre. Dethklok comes to mind as being played in C standard on an LP. That said, the genre thrives...

    How do you like the L6 Power Cab ?

    It was pretty decent, but I liked my Xitone active wedge better in the end.

    New guitar has made the rounds on Reverb…

    Oh yeah I've been through this with the same thing being passed around over and over. It's probably throwing a check engine light and nobody wants to fix it.

    NGD: Aristides H/06r

    I know what you're thinking. Another headless, and another Aristides? Come on, TGP is practically drowning in these already! :p:p Aristides has been on my radar for a while but I was waiting for the right one to become available and this hit the mark. The original line are cool and all, but the...

    Why is the "don't tell my wife" joke/line so common in the guitar community?

    I feel bad for everyone who thinks it's funny, and worse for everyone for whom it's not really a joke.

    Question about height to hang guitars on the wall

    Top of my hangers are at 78" from the floor. High up without being a pain in the butt to pull off.

    Celestion G12H-30 Anniversary vs. G12H-75 Creamback

    That was a long time ago now - but think of it this way. There was a time that I had only played Stratocasters and similar guitars, ever. And no amount of reading or TGP discussion was going to tell me why a Les Paul might be what I actually like (or not!). At some point you've gotta own the...

    FM3 Second Time Around Thoughts (vs Helix)

    I really didn't enjoy using the FM3 with only three switches. I wish Fractal had gone with a slightly larger form factor. That said, five is working out alright.

    Great modeling device, great amp(s), which do you use first and why?

    I sold most of my amps after Axe Fx came into the picture. All I have left is a Jet City (which I'm fond of, don't get me wrong) but I can't remember the last time I powered it up.

    What can't an Axe-FX III do?

    The tuner is fine, there's absolutely nothing wrong with it. But it is a single note monophonic tuner - no polytune here unfortunately.

    Best expression for Fractal aside from EV-1

    An EV-2 ;) Mission Engineering is who you want. Should be available from many retailers.

    Fractal FM3 for dummies

    There's a learning curve. There's also an expectations problem. Let me put it this way: some time back, I set up a test rig where I'd play a tube amp or my Fractal AX8 (+ Crown class D amp) through the same cab and compare. I did this with an EVH 5153 and the Fractal lost by a smidge. I also did...

    The Three Footswitch Trend

    I just got the FM3 and 3 switches is manageable but very annoying. Lots of tapping and holding to get between layouts and views/banks. I'm using one pedal jack for expression, going to put a dual footswitch into the other jack and see if five feels a little better. I would honestly love to run...

    Options paralysis choosing a digital rig

    I think the L6 POD Go would be an excellent way to dip your toes in. They're also easy to find with a good return policy if you decide something else would be a better fit.

    Paul Reed Smith ....give me a break

    Jesus people. It's been a tough year, Paul is just trying to find a little extra for the Christmas bonuses this year. If anything it's inconsiderate NOT to buy the guitars.

    EVH: How much has he inspired your rig?

    The 5153 is my favorite amp period, both in real life and in digital modeling. It's that simple for me.

    Poll: Do you play guitar?

    I have some songs from a dude going by Omnitica with some fabulous work along these lines. Have you heard any of it?

    Gonna try gigging just the FM3. Will I succeed?

    If you want just a little bit more without adding a ton of footprint, you can consider a small dual foot switch. The "Mosky" on Amazon is a popular one. That gives you two buttons and you still have a jack left for an expression pedal.
