Why a 2205 over a 2203?
>>
>>61947889
Get a used AxeFX II. You can find mint examples for what an AX-8 costs new. Triple the DSP power on the rack unit, no wait when buying used.

If you want new grab one of the close-out XL models. Only different between XL and XL+ is the latter has a brighter display. XLs are under $2000 (USD) new and there's no wait.
>>
>>61947895
It was cheaper and I was able to order an oversized 1x12 with an Eminence speaker to use with it
>>
>>61947889
Why not just get a kemper senpai?
>>
>>61947941
Massive tonal difference in the 2203 and 2205 though.

>>61947958
Not him but the Kemper vs AxeFX thing is only had by people who don't own them. They're completely different approaches the modelling and aren't really for the same market.

Either way waiting lists for Fractal is nothing new. I wait six months for my XL when it was released, and the wait for IIs at the time was even longer.

Why do they need to? Supply and demand. People are willing to wait for the product and they can charge whatever they want.

Like I said before, just go buy a used AxeFX II. It'll cost you the same as a new AX-8, has triple the DSP power, and you can have it by next week.

They aren't that expensive really. A months wages with a shitty part-time job. My point is in the community of players with AxeFXs or Kempers there's no real debate about it. They're totally different to each other.

Pretty expensive for something that you probably wont even be able to give away in 5 years tbqh. The only thing music related I could justify at that price would be a guitar tbqh.
>>
>>61948398
>give away in 5 years
AxeFX II came out five years ago in May. Used examples are typically $2000-2500.
>>
>>61948487
I mean like 5 years from now senpai. OR however long it takes for a successor to appear.
>>
>>61948617
An AxeFX Standard or Ultra will still cost you a good amount, but they were discontinued due to hitting the ceiling of what their DSP allowed. AxeFX II has such a ridiculous amount of DSP powerand considering they only recently did a huge firmware update (reset version to 1.0), it's not going anywhere soon.

Add in the fact that when the POD stuff was coming out no one ever really thought it sounded like an amplifier. It was more of a handy studio or practice tool. Once you start running modern modellers out through power amps and to cabinets they can be scary close sound wise. The differences are more apparent in how they feel to play although that's slowly improving as well.

Keep in mind Line 6 only just released a flagship modelling unit that has a third the power of what Fractal's unit had five years ago.

Do low-grade practice amps make your tone really whiny or something? Always thought it was my pickups but I played on a proper marshall at a practice studio and it went away.
>>
>>61948803

>>
>>61951177
They don't do you any favors for clean or distorted tones.
>>
>>61951177
no, maybe your picking up a lot of electrical noise.
>>
>>61951285
>he thinks you need a nice amp for cleans
>>
>>61951285
Yeah I guess that's it then. Any distortion I put in the mix makes higher notes ear cancer.

>>61951340

>>61951366
How much distortion are we talking? Try a pedal for metal.

Trying to decide between the Seagull S6 with or without QI pickups. Are the pickups really worth the extra cost?
>>
>>61951485
what are you saying? the distorted or cleans guy was bullshitting? I think he got taken seriously.
>>
>>61951575
not unless you will use them i.e plugging into a PA for a gig or band practice
>>
>>61951575
You can always add a pickup later.
>>
>>61951860
Well, seeing as I'll just be playing acoustically, I'll just stick to the regular. Thanks a ton anon, you saved me a lot of money!

Followup question: cedar or spruce for the S6?
>>
>>61951897
CEDAR

yes, spruce is everywhere and sounds great on acoustics but I can't stress this enough, an S6 will last you forever and 10-20 years from now will sound even better with cedar.

also cedar and cherry smell really good.
>>
>>61951897
bubinga!

>>61948363
Thats a great collection. Bet they're all fun to play. Which one do you play the most? Ive got about 7 strats that all sound different right now. Play the Korean the most right now. It plays really well, stays in tune, and has super hot pickups in it.

>>
>>61952100
Yeah. I have a guitar, a few basic pedals, and an amp.
I've never really NEEDED to know more but I feel retarded when people talk about all the digital stuff and racks.
>>
>>61952121
Its all good. Some people love the basic of the basic, and some love a billion options. When it comes down to it, the simple setups are the best when it comes to trouble shoot problems. Other times the amount of gear used is a dick measuring game. Use what works for you.

How can I get the sound that starts at 11:20 of https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ta2-VXNIhH0 ? I'm aware that one guitar is being screwdrivered, giving it that eerie whining sound, but the louder one has that much sharper sustained wailing sound, which I haven't been able to recreate.

come on. if i said here want this guitar. it has super high action, 8 year old strings. no low e string and 3 of the tuners dont work. its free! oh and if you want to get that stuff fixed it will cost like 2 grand and still be worth like a hundred bucks. you probably wouldn't be as stoked as you think you are on the piano.

its apparently worth doing then according to >>61953356

For the price of one of those you may as well just get a used Dual Recto and get a much much better amp.

99% of those low-wattage suckers sound like shit when you try to crank them.
>>
>>61953480
get a used solo rec. WAY better then the mini. Ive A and B'ed both. A used solo rec would probably be cheaper too. Just my 2 cents.

Just buy an old dual rectifier. I bought my roadster for 1100. It's worth it to spend the extra cash on it. The minis kinda suck.

>>61953532
>>61953554

I was thinking about this, but currently I'm not in a situation where I could utilise the full sized to it's full potential, I'll have to see what prices of the used are when I have the funds
>>
>>61953603
Sell those Squires and your least fav fender, buy a used mesa and cab.
>>
>>61953603
Not really about utilizing the full sized to it's current potential right NOW. But you may as well get a tried and true amp rather than a sorta-ok version of it that probably costs more/the same.

Better to get something good now then go through a bunch of ok things then get what you should have gotten 5 years and $5000 later. I made that mistake.

Pickups never effect resell value. Unless they're spun with gold wire, which Gibson did sometime ago. Dem blues lawyers are some spend-full motherfuckers.

So, I'm a huge Bowie fan and just finished listening to Here Come The Warm Jets. Robert Fripp's guitar style is fucking orgasmic. I've listened to ITCOTCK and a bit of Red, and they're good, but I'm looking for some Scary Monsters-esque Fripp. Any recommendations?

>>61954029
Marshall, les paul custom with splitable pickups,
other custom electronics, sustainer, boost pedal, other effects you hear on songs.

Assuming one wishes to actually compose wide-range of music after a while.
Is jazz theory or classical (harmony/counterpoint/structure) theory better?

I started with jazz since it seemed more applicable to my instrument but I'll be honest it seems...

Okay it seems very guitarish to put it simply.
It's quick to show the "how" but doesn't even mention the "what it is".
Like guitar players and how we often learn scales - they are just fingerings with memorized alt-pick pattern, instead of actual notes.
>>

Any /gg/ guys from LA that want to jam?
>>
>>61948803

That's actually true. With all the cheap tube amps manufacturers appearing even babbies have them so now the mojo has partially worn off.
While good that also has a bad side to it - no one bothers making proper ss circuit equivalent of soldanos, mesas or marshalls.
We are left up to the modelers but they always feel off when you play them. Like you know, how bright semi-clean feels different from high gain with wah. That kind of feel.
>>
>>61954372

This. Have a squier bullet with scalloped neck and very thoroughly glass-like sanded back of the neck.
The neck feels amazing and I often prefer it over other guitars.
Might even drop money for good refret, new pups, tremolo and tuners.

i'm a luthier, ask me anything
>>
>>61954581

>>61954581

How much does wood matter for electric guitar tone? Especially with high output pups and generous usage of amp signal devastation.
>>
>>61954595
For the same reason as any guitar manufacturer. Everyone wants to earn some money for their job.
>>61954601
Not much actually. Wood does not affect sound. It is density that affect resonation - imho it is why some bodies sound different from another. For me it is all that matter in electric guitar. Most of the tone comes from pickups and amp but different wood can affect sustain and shit
>>
>>61954372
>>61954577
Thanks. I have other fender guitars and other american made guitars that have a bare or oiled finish on the back of the neck. It does make a difference. I played a Gibson SG for year and the dirt/oil/dead skin built up, making it harder to play. Im happier playing a bare neck guitar without varnish or other treatments. Looking to retrofit a mighty mite or warmoth neck on my favorite strat body.
>>
>>61953066
If you're talking about fender specifically I understand that high quality would come from these countries. But otherwise generalizing a country's quality is a shortcut in research not worth taking. There are certainly plenty of companies and factories that defy the trend, both in a good and bad way.
>>
>>61954581
If I were to take my guitar to an amp tech that works on his own guitar, would it be better my guitar go to someone that actually has the right gauges, tools, and lathes for wood working to get a guitar modified? seems dumb but its probably cheaper the first option
>>
>>61954321
please intonate your guitar
>>
>>61954577
a guitar tech may not be willing to refret your neck depending on how the scalloping turned out. Hopefully you didn't go overboard or remove much wood close to the frets.
>>
>>61954748
depends on the amp tech. From your post I'm guessing your guitar needs basic work any schmuck could do, but you think setting up a guitar takes a wizard. I recommend you take it to a luthier since you probably will think the same result is better that way.
>>
>>61954734

Well usually MIA and MIJ guitars are good quality wise isn't it.

Where else do they make guitars? Korea? Indonesia? I know PRS SEs and Schecters come from Korea. Indonesia.. That's where the cort factory is at right.

Recently got a jazzmaster and its really quiet, do i have bad pickups or is that just what they're like?
>>
>>61954973
They should sound thin but not quiet. Maybe you would benefit from a gain boost or an overdrive pedal with the volume cranked and gain/distortion lowered. Really depends on your amps settings; preamp cranked for distortion or preamp set for cleans.
>>
>>61954969
I know about that, but I mean with an actual guitar. Would it basically just be a fretless fretboard that's good for shredding? Or whatever people scallop for.

>>
>>61955007
Scalloped necks are for people with light touch, and you can do crazy bends pretty easily. fretless boards take muscle memory to play a note in the correct tuning, much like a violin. Scalloped was pretty much an 80s thing. If its good for shreading while learning, no. If you have good ears and precision fret hand muscle memory yes. But hey, fuck it, drill yourself until you get it right.
>>
>>61955072
If it's hard to do chords on a scalloped fretboard and a fretless fretboard, I can't imagine what hell it must be to do chords on a fretboard that's both.

not who you're replying to but that sound can be gotten with pretty much any guitar that doesnt have super hot pickups. sounds like an SS amp to me.

>>61960933
There are pickups that are treble heavy that sound good, and treble heavy pickups that sound bad. The minis they've been sticking in these Vs are bad. The reason why you can pick these firebirds up for pretty cheap if you look around is because its a common complaint that they stuck some shitty pickups in them. But thats Gibson for you.

Play a diminished chord on one string, then hop over to the next octave, repeat, and then go down, moving as less as possible. That would be a good exercice I think, pic related.

Use it more. I find running diminished scales up and down is a good exercise for pinky competence, but you can do it with any scale really. Just make sure you're in proper positioning and aren't overusing your ring finger to compensate

don't do me like this senpai. walnut is my kryptonite.

Unique doesn't mean good. It looks like they finished a flat-top guitar and said "hey, let's ruin this guitar by shaving the edges off, I bet those djent-boys will love it."

>>61963221
It's not bad in general. But it's ugly as shit on that model
>>
>>61963202

Honestly I don't know what I'd play if I had a drummer, literally all I'm doing right now is learning the notes in the scales and reciting as I play...
>>
Got an electric guitar about two months ago, I've been trying out different strings to see what I like. Just got some DRs. Any recommendations?

What the fuck are you on about?
It's a guitar made for down-tuning, of course it's targeted towards djent , if anything it was a good idea to make it so.
Stop crying because some company you don't like made a new original model and go back to your shitty overpriced gibsons.
>>
>>61963426
never too late to learn em
also most tools are cheap as fuck
>>
>>61963334
That's fine, just fuck around with the scales when you find a drummer. Not really hard to sound good with bass + drums. It's just a matter of getting used to getting "locked in" with the drummer. Also, what's your goal with the bass? looking to join a band in the future?

>>61963436
He just doesn't like the look of the edges, why do you get so defensive about it? Did he hurt your pride by having an opinion that differs from yours?
>>
>>61963347
DR are a solid choice. Rotosound/Pyramid are pretty nice too if you're after a vintage sound.
D'addario are always a good choice too.
>>

>hurr durr this looks like shit this is retarded!

nice samefagging, btw

Oh I forgot people aren't allowed to have opinions here.

I'm not samefagging, just wondering why you get so angry about someone disagreeing with you.

There's a difference between having an opinion and spouting nonsensical shit to be an edgy contrarian, m8

pick the non-retarded one.

Any chance this might be true? Will they kill muh toans?
Having corrosive as fuck sweat this might be perfect for me. D'Addarios are the only strings that last me for weeks.
>>
>>61963757
He literally said the first option in his first post and never mentioned the second option, he only mentioned that he thinks they ruined the guitar by shaving the edges off because they thought djent boys would like it.

But I'm still wondering why you're so buttmad about someone not liking the djent look.

you can get a vintage late 70s-early 80s hard tail fender strat for around 1.1k - 1.2k if you look hard enough. they are fantastic guitars

Have you tried Elixir? Polywebs last for fucking ever
>>
>>61963982
I just moved here a month ago so it hadn't come up. i'm looking to move out soon anyway, kinda stifling here. guy rides my ass for taking a fucking shower before he does in the morning even though it's none of his fucking business. his fault he doesnt have a second cylinder for the basement

>>61963559

Looking to write a bit in the future. Maybe join a band or just write and record a lot of my own stuff.
>>
>>61963826
I don't know about ernie balls but i feel like nickel coated strings (and pure nickel strings) are more resistant to rust. Also, you could try coated strings (elixirs) or taped strings.
Alternatively, use fastfret or aqua velva after each use
>>
>>61964074
Polywebs last even longer but they're phasing them out because they last so long that they're bad for business.

Yeah, no where does he actually attack djent boys for liking that type of guitar. He attacks the guitar makers. Maybe you should learn to read?
>>
Any thoughts on Vintage guitars? They seem like a pretty solid alternative to Epis or Squires considering the price and the hardware.
>>
Out of curiosity how important do you think the difference between a tube amp and a good solidstate/modeling rig are? I was in a debate with my friend. He said the differences are so little and not perceivable by audiences. I told him that the differences come mostly in how much control the player has over the tone just by how they choose to attack the string, a tube amp gives a player much more dynamic range

There's no point. Where would the scalloping go, and why? The bumps between the divots would just create de facto frets. You might as well have a fretted neck at that point.
>>
>>61954973
Make sure you don't have the rhythm circuit switch on. That's the most likely cause for a big volume drop with the Fender offsets.
It's the one by the roller knobs closest to you, and it'll be in the up position if it's engaged.
