    In retrospect you can kinda tell this seems like it was a plan B. A guitar that Kirk really didn't have anything to do with post-1984 after he got his Jackson and Fernandes guitars. I'm surprised they didn't make a sig based on his Les Paul Custom he used between 1988 - the mid 2000s.

    Interesting that Kirk apparently used single coils for awhile.

    Yup. Apparently a lot of stuff in the RtL era was done with this baby. His main fiddle until he got the Jackson.

    Also if you watch THAT For Whom The Bell Tolls video, the final shot of Kirk is him playing this guitar.

    Well it's not like Kirk's guitar is on during rhythm parts lol.

    Ya know, this has always been something I wondered about. In live performances, Kirk is usually playing basic rhythm parts together with James. In the studio, are the rhythm parts literally all James?

    Pretty sure St Anger was both of them. There is probably some rhythm tracks from Kirk, but it's likely similar to Megadeth in someways. Dave, at least early on, played the hard left/right tracks, and had a track from Chris/Marty, etc. in the center, though probably a little mixed down. While Metallica likely doesn't do the same thing, it's probably similar. ie, 24 tracks from James, and 1 track left, 1 track right of Kirk, if that. Most of it is James though.

    Until Re/Load it was all James. For example, Kirk isn't even credited on Nothing Else Matters! You can hear on isolated tracks from Re/Load that the right (Kirk) and left (James) track are actually quite different, unlike previous records. Compare and contrast:




    EDIT: At least, Re/Load have certainly both Kirk and James playing the rhythms; not sure about the following records.

    I've read that beforehand James would play Rhythm panned to one side with his guitar and whole rig, and then James again panned to the other side but with Kirk's guitar and whole rig.

    So with the Invective being MIC, can anyone chime in on the reliability? I'm pretty close to buying one, but that kinda worries me.

    I've got one of the "assembled in the USA" Invectives and haven't had any issues so far other than the LED for the lead channel going out, but that's an easy fix.

    I've only had it a few months but I'm really happy with the quality and sound.

    Edit: can't wait to try it with some KT88's.

    @bulb are there any plans to make this a midsize 50w amp? I know the full size is 50w-able but its still the monster size and weight that it is. The mini version Im afraid wont have the same crushing balls gain at very loud band practices and shows...

    Can we please get a standalone 50 w head or are there any plans to do this?

    @Deadpool_25 how is the boost in this amp? Does it make it tighter like a TS style boost would?
