    Just spent $450 on a blender, so I guess in the words of King Crimson, "You have to be happy with what you have to be happy with."

    Do I plug the blender in before or after my noise gate in my pedal chain?

    As long as it's before the delay and reverb I think either is fine.

    I think im going to get a axe II/AX8 or hold out for the FM3. I love my hx stomp and my vht pitbull but the helix tones are my absolute fav's and I cant crank my VHT anymore. I have a few older vintage pedals I could sell with my stomp to cover a FM3 and just pack up my VHT!

    It'll be a while, but either an AxeFX III, or a Kalium Quake. Both are necessary, but I've no idea what to aim for first at this point.

    I just buyed one of these... (sry, for the bad pics. I'm too lazy for doing better :p)

    IMG_20190603_120412934.jpg IMG_20190603_120443329.jpg

    The fretboard is dry AF and I have to change strings (I will play standard 10-46's with Eb tuning on this, from factory there are 9's on it) and get some oil on that poor piece of Pau Ferro asap. I never got a new guitar with a fretboard which was that dry, it def. not have seen a drop of oil yet :( The action is also a little too high for my taste now, but it's playable and good intonated out of the box. I really like the neck (the shorter scale w/ 24,75", the modern C profile and the cooked maple). Fretwork (medium jumbos) is also good) but if they've done it w/ a 12" radius instead the 9,5" it would've been even better. Pickups sounding good and it's a little lighter than the MIM Strats I owned before (the lack of a trem, I assume).
    Overall, I really like it. I have a thing for offset body shapes, so this, with all it's other quirks (like the TOM the P90 in the neck, G-Scale...) was a must have for me.

    I think it just needs a good rub down and it'll be fine once it does. Normally, I'd suggest putting some oil on, spreading it around on the wood, leaving it a minute, and then wiping off the excess. However, given how dry that is, I'd leave it a little longer, say three to five minutes, and seeing if it needs another oiling after you wiping the excess off.

    Friedman Buxom Boost incoming. Should be fun to compare all of my overdrives to a true clean boost in a heavy context :metal:

    Bought a J Custom and a Ceres today. I think I might be a little more excited for the Ceres though lol. I plan to test it against my Ares 50's preamp.
