    I don't understand why people use UPS and FedEx

    The only time I've ever had a massive problem was with USPS where a one off custom guitar, shipped from Texas to the UK, was essentially lost for 5 months. I got it in the end but it was very stressful.

    Forshage Neo-H Koa build

    I've mentioned this on a few threads but figured it needed its own. My mother passed away 2 years ago and I used part of the inheritance to commission a guitar from Chris Forshage. I already have a pair of Chris' headless Orion model but this time I was looking for something a bit special. We...

    Forshage Galaxy Custom Build

    Thank you- yes it is a very special piece of Koa. The guitar was a 'present' from my mum's estate. Before died she said I should have a guitar made.

    Well I did it, just bought an Axe III and FC-12

    I've recently upgraded from a II to a III and liking it much. I do still prefer the Kemper for mid gain, slightly broken up stuff but I love the Axe III for everything else.

    Trevor Rabin (Yes) Fractal and bassist KPA

    It is typical to have a backup in case one goes down- but if you look in close there doesn't seem to be anything plugged into the front of the right side Kemper. He could be using it purely as an FX RTN feed out to a second cab if it is a power head, or using the rear input (but why use the...

    Trevor Rabin (Yes) Fractal and bassist KPA

    Yup, Lee Pomeroy is playing bass though the Kemper, Rabin through the Fractal. Interesting article on Lee's use of the Kemper here: https://www.musicradar.com/news/lee-pomeroy-to-play-these-songs-with-jon-anderson-and-trevor-rabin-is-a-dream-come-true

    Helix 2.8?

    Smaller companies can innovate quicker though- which is why you see a 20:1 ratio of Fractal updates to the rest of the competition. I've had a lot of Line 6 devices- currently have a Helix along with a Kemper, Axe FX II and FX8. Line 6 development looks positively glacial in comparison to Fractal.

    You're not practicing enough...

    I used to play until my hands ached. After 25 years of doing that I required hand surgery and then had an enforced 2 years away from the instrument (if I ever wanted to play again). I now play 2-3 hours a day. It is enough.
