    NGD: 1977 Les Paul Custom

    It's not the weight it's a combination of 3 ply maple neck, volute, and a reduced angle headstock that make the neck and headstock less fragile. I prefer those design improvements, particularly if I'm playing live.

    NGD: 1977 Les Paul Custom

    Well just as you say weight doesn't affect anything other than weight, "resonance" doesn't affect anything other than what it sounds like not plugged in. Weight doesn't make a guitar more suited to rock or metal but a neck joint that doesn't snap when you hit the bass player and higher output...

    DigiTech SDRUM

    Sweet. Would be good for busking and maybe even light cover gigs.

    Is there anyone here who actually LIKE the tone of digital amps/distortion?

    I admit that I have an affinity to plug-and-play simple gear, but I think that's a function of my laziness, more than anything. If you're a band doing any sort of recording you're going to spend hours figuring out the best tones, the best fit for each particular track, each particular mix...

    Is there anyone here who actually LIKE the tone of digital amps/distortion?

    I think some of the earlier, less accurate-sounding modelers can have a cool sound in the right context. I believe Cynic's Focus album featured mainly modelling guitar sounds and it was perfect for that alien, ethereal vibe.

    Never heard of these. When were they made?

    Good Sepultura albums?

    It was always Arise for me. I can get into their groovey/ethnic stuff when the mood hits too, but coming from a thrash mentality Arise was the one I liked. Their live shows from that era on youtube are pretty great.

    Seymour Duncan PowerStage 700 power amp

    Definitely a market for this sort of thing.

    Ah ok I see what you're saying

    Ibanez NAMM 2017

    errr...maybe. There are hundreds of suitable woods for fretboards, plenty of composites, and plenty of synthetics. If you mean the marketing might suffer because companies might be less convincing when the new options offer "superb snap and tonal response!!!11!!" or whatever and it's the...

    New pedal that makes guitar sound double-tracked

    It's a nice idea but IMO a very mild chorus works well enough to thicken up the sound for live gigs. Particularly a stereo chorus if you have one.

    Cab Sim pedals are 'in'..

    yeah it's kinda perfect isn't it?

    Cab Sim pedals are 'in'..

    I believe Atomic has a new one out as well, although it's more of a preamp pedal + IR loading cab + reverb. Looks really useful

    Youtube guitar/gear videos - what matters to YOU?

    Also, try not to be too much of a fanboy. It's really obvious when a reviewer is really excited to receive his guitar and is just gushing over it. I know, I know, nice gear is nice but try to calm yourself a little. i.e. no unboxings.

    Youtube guitar/gear videos - what matters to YOU?

    not to be the contrarian, but I prefer talking and explaining the gear to playing. How much an amp compresses, it's dynamic range etc - none of those things can be shown over a youtube video and are about 10x more important than any tonal analysis I might be able to hear from some guy playing...

    Boss Katana amps (What the Boss Waza amp should have been)

    One more question. On the Boss software editor there is a "Solo Level" and "Solo SW" setting for the overdrives. I imagine this is so you can change the level and tone of your boost for solos. But I can't see a switch on the amp or pedal to do this. Is it something that can be done by...

    Boss Katana amps (What the Boss Waza amp should have been)

    Cheers, How are you finding the internal noise gate? Does it place the boost pedals in an internal loop like the NS pedal can?

    Boss Katana amps (What the Boss Waza amp should have been)

    Oh just seen, it's the 4 "tone setting" channels, right? So effectively for live performance that's 4 presets available, plus the boost for each channel. That's enough for me I imagine.
