    This guy on speed? Cool guitars though, love when ash gets worn like that.

    Thanks for posting! Been waiting for a Pelican rig rundown for quite some time now.

    yeah he's pretty chatty compared to trevor. I was laughing my ass off when he was all surprised that switching from a 250k pot to a 500k pot made a difference.

    I love this band and that was actually a great rig rundown.

    These guys are total gear nerds.

    More like gear dorks, considering what they didn’t remember or understand about their gear. Good guys, all the same.

    That SG body / Flying V headstock custom looks killer!

    I really have the hots for single bridge humbucker guitars these days. 1 Pickup, 1 knob.

    That video gave me an idea. How about a single pickup guitar, with 2 volume knobs (one 250k and one 500k pot), and a 3 way selector switch for the 2 knob positions and killswitch position in the middle.

    why? that just seem needlessly complicated for something that's not going to be a gigantic difference. It's not like going from 250k to 1meg.
    it'd be easier to wire up the guitar with a no load pot so you can completely bypass the vol knob if you want.

    What a brainstorm: “Yeah; and with this switch, it’s like I’m turning the knob halfway down to achieve the same relative volume cut. It gets used all the time. What do you mean my car’s being towed?”
