    Agreed. That's why while I've wanted one for quite some time I was only gonna go for an artisan or monarchy because I think the shield is done way better on them.

    Still very excited to have one. I haven't even played a Majesty yet somehow.

    I finally played one at the Philly guitar show last month and was blown away. Played it back to back with a Skervesen and a Suhr and preferred the Majesty by a lot. Almost bought it on the spot, but it was a matte black finish and I'm 100% Italian, those two things don't mix. I wound up with the purple monarch too, and it's killer.

    I just laughed, but then felt bad wondering if i should have :)

    I'm always worried that i'm too oily/sweaty for my two matte finish guitars as well, as it's my favourite finish. Luckily i've managed to not make them shiny yet.

    Oh my matte finish was totally gone on my Agile in less than a year. It’s not oil. Your skin buffs the finish to a shine

    I've been pretty anti Axe for years, but seriously considering just getting an Axe 3 and offing some of my amps, especially since I have 10 now and don't play half of them.

    I use my triple rec and xtc classic probably 75% of the time for jamming or recording. That third spot could go to any of the other 3-4 that I use regularly, probably my Top Hat King Royale though.

    Grabbed a set of Shure 215 in-ears as I'm playing live again. Life is awesome :D

    King Royale was on my list for a while -- don't see that mentioned on SSO often. I managed to try a Club and I guess wasn't too fond of it, so gave up until I can get hands-on. What's in the set of 10?

    For sure not a popular pick around here, but I'm a huge fan of mixing hi gain sounds with more mid gain things, and a rec with an Ac30 works so damn well for big rock sounds. I think as far as pure tone goes, the KR might be the best sounding amp I have, but it basically does two specialty type of tones so it's not the first thing I grab when I'm recording something. The stable is : 2 channel Triple Rec, Dual Rec Tremoverb, King Royale, VHT Pittbull Classic, Diezel VH4S, Bogner Ecstacy Classic, Rivera K-tre Reverb, H&K Triamp MkII, Engl Invader 100, Fender Supersonic 60.

    Ha, nice! I'm setup similar almost 1-to-1. Dual Rec 2 channel, Badcat Cub, VHT Pittbull, Diezel VH4, Bogner Ecstacy 20th, (there's a cheap K-tre near me I'm spotting), H&K Warp T, Engl SE, Two-Rock CLRS. Though I guess the supersonic is one of the rare high gain Fenders and not like a blackface.

    That's kind of crazy. What are you using most of your stuff? I haven't used my k-tre, invader, or tverb in like 2 years. Probably 5 years for my invader, so those are the ones I'll be moving. I thought the supersonic was built on a deluxe reverb circuit originally that they modified. It's definitely not hi gain like the metalhead or machete were.

    Mostly SLO and VH4 now, since those are the more recent things and they sit on my favorite cab that's at 16ohm. Actually the only 2 things I own that are sort of on the chopping block are maybe the Warp-T and a Carol-Ann Tucana, since they don't really nail an important sound. Recto covers the Warp-T (it's Rev F and much less bass than the Warp), and Tucana's definitely a bit of a jack-of-all-trades, at least with current tubes.

    Last night I realised that Fender guitars aren't really my thing after all. I mean, they sound and play pretty well but there's just something missing. Now I really want to go out and test the Ibanez AZ models because they are basicly just strats but more suitable for modern tones and playing styles. Especially this one. :yum:

    Sooo I decided and pulled the trigger on a BKP Rebel Yell. I'm a decade late on the hype train, but I'm sold. :lol:

    After that, I'm gonna look into that Sinmix IR pack.

    Have you tried their Holydiver? It's been my favorite pickup for, oh man, at least 10 years. Where did the time go. Oh geez.
