    What should I make next?

    I bet a resin river guitar in a Jaguar/Jazzmaster/offset style would look proper tasty.

    Pencil tele

    Looking good! :cool: I'd go with the last fretboard, I think the darker colour of it works nice with the headstock colour and with the black glossy top. I'd leave the headstock as-is personally, as I don't know if the pencil veneer on it might be a bit too much.....personal opinion though of...

    will kemper kill amp gas?

    I think my rig at the moment has 3 different amp sounds, and between the 2 performances I've got set up there's probably only a couple more. Pretty much Fender for the cleans/crunch, Mesa Rectifier for heavier gain and a 5150 for lead tones. One of the built in ones that I used a lot for cleans...

    Gear rules?

    I used to only play guitars with tuneomatic bridges as a steadfast rule. Now I have more guitars without them than with! My tastes have really changed and developed over the years, so many things that I used to think about guitars has mainly gone out of the window. As long as it plays good and...

    NAD: Will Kemper prove it's reputation?

    Nice to see! It'll be good to hear your thoughts once you've spent a lot more time with it, but it sounds like you've had the same reaction I did when I first got mine. Totally agree on the interface comments, the Helix does it a lot nicer but once you've figured it out it just becomes second...

    NGD: So yellow it hurts

    Thanks for the love! The funny thing about this to me is that in the past I used to hate on Fender and Stratocasters because I thought they were boring. Now here's my collection: Time changes us all :p

    NGD: So yellow it hurts

    For a while I've been toying with the idea of getting one of my Fender Stratocasters resprayed in yellow, but I could never decide on which one to do it on. The decision was made much simpler when a seller I regularly follow on Reverb popped this beauty up. It was a no-brainer purchase. So...

    What put a smile on your face today?

    So, in the past few weeks I've split up my old band, lost a really good friend and lost my job. On the plus side, I've started an even better band, made some good new friends AND I've just pulled the trigger on an awesome piece of gear. Silver linings and all :D P.S anyone need any graphic...

    will kemper kill amp gas?

    Yep, I basically run mine through either a Blackstar 2x12 or Mesa Rectifier 2x12 with cab emulation off for live use. I've used cab emulation when I toured without cabs, and for direct in recording so it's easy to turn on and off. The pickup thing is quite common to come up, and the 2 ways of...

    will kemper kill amp gas?

    I used to buy a new amp every 6 months or so since I was never entirely happy. I bought a Kemper about 2 years ago after using one in the studio, and have literally had no GAS for amps since. Anytime I've thought "oh it would be great to just switch to a valve amp and go back to non profiling" I...

    Needing help putting together a music PC

    I'd suggest looking at some of the 3XS systems that you can get through Scan. They're in your price range, and you can change some of the parts if you want before ordering it. All custom built by them. I got one of their "gaming" desktops a few years ago to use for audio production and it...

    The "What pissed you off today" thread

    Thanks, but I literally figured it out about 2 seconds after posting that. I've spent 2 days trying multiple reinstalls, messing around with VST's, checking routing, and guess what? It was muted in the security settings of my Mac. Bloody typical it was an easy fix! :oops:

    The "What pissed you off today" thread

    Just upgraded to a Macbook and Cubase 10 and my Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 outputs audio but doesn't record. Seems like it's all set up right in the settings but nothing going. Frustrating as heck
