    Your Axe-Fx 3 can probably do most of the stuff you would find in all but the most esoteric pedals, at least if you combine a few blocks together. The difficulty is of course building it yourself.

    It should kill your pedal gas too, for the most part. Check out the new factory presets. If you hear an effect you think is cool, post for help on how to build it. Simeon on the fas forum is a wizard with that stuff.

    Yeah, I should get it tomorrow!

    I actually tried it in a store but was a bit on the fence if it will add something to my existing stable of guitars but when I got home and compared to my semihollowbody I felt it might be worth it. Lucked out that I found the same store had a demo model for several hundred euros less and unless it is beat up with issues might turn out to be a decent deal.

    The one I tried was a gorgeous and really well made guitar, had zero complaints about it. Sounded great through a little Orange OR15 stack.

    Those f-holes look super sleek/ stealth. I dig that aesthetic in a world of traditional f-hole hollows and semis. Combined with the hardware, body color, etc... that's a class act all the way round. Congratulations.

    I'm actually am not overly fond of the F-hole look and would probably prefer a more classic shape to them. The color looks very much like the product photos in most lighting but is a lighter shade of green in sunlight. Reminds me of a more green tinted version of my Fender Jazzmaster's Ocean Turquoise finish. Just a great and unique color!

    The guitar is very well made, I can't find anything but very minor cosmetic flaws on it. A few dark specs in paint and some tooling marks on binding. All I needed to do is adjust the neck pickup a little bit. Will slap on some 11s on it when I change the strings. This "demo model" is basically brand new, just needed to wipe some dust off it.

    I haven't played many Filtertrons so I can't really say how the rather unknown Tesla TV-ML1 pickups compare but I do like how they sound. The coil split feature is also useful to reduce gain and make it sound more acoustic-ish.

    Been waiting for one of these to pop up and had my gear search scripts hit on this one in great condition. I wonder if the guy was surprised when someone bought it like 45 seconds after the listing went live :D

    GAS'ing over my own stuff lol. Just got this back out of storage (since 2017), but I didn't have a cab until yesterday to play it through. What a killer Marshall clone with basically JTM45 to modded JCM territory covered. And it's the newest version so it actually has very good cleans as well.

    I played it through the Budda Phatcab 212, but I think it might sound better through the Randall 212 with v30's.

    Also looking forward to playing my Kemper through the cabs instead of headphones. Curious to A/B the onboard SS power amp against my 6L6 Fryette PS2.

    tl;dr getting your stuff back after 4 years is like buying new stuff :lol:

    Got myself one, with the JT580LP. Man does it perform, I love this amazing Japanese piece of engineering. It stays in tune, holds the strings well, is still smooth as butter even though it's from '97.

    There is a SWEET deal on an AMT Stonehead on Reverb right now. Someone snatch it up and save me from my gas.

    Trying to stop buying gear but I need a few more things.

    A pair of G12T-75, looking for a decent price on an old vented pair first.

    Someone told me I need a mimiq pedal.

    Putting in an order for a couple of Motor City Hotheads.
