    I got my Line 6 Helix in the mail this past Thursday; didn't feel like making a thread yapping about so a post will do.

    Maple always makes the scale look shorter than if it was ebony...

    Not sure I agree, but here's an easy comparison.
    Ebony, maple and rosewood.

    Haha! Whatever, resulted in me posting a pic of three Horizons. Who’s complaining?

    Cuz the black shaft would look bigger than the lighter maple one? lol

    And yes, in the end... three horizons later... we win.

    2018 Update (pre-NAMM):
    1.) Seymour Duncan Retributions - for my Ibanez K-7
    2.) TC Electronics Crescendo
    3.) StewMac Z-File and a couple of other files to complete my needs to do fretwork
    4.) Bass Rig - Just picked up a Mesa Boogie 400 for dirt cheap and have an Ampeg PR-410HLF inline.

    So I needed more modulation effects, and one of my favoritest bands is Breaking Benjamin, so I decided to give a rotary speaker sim a shot since a lot of the funky sounds they get involve the H&K Rotosphere. Would be a cool effect for leads, or just chimey chords.

    Buuuut I'm not spending $300 on a 5 pound hunk of metal, lights, and tubes. So I got a Line 6 Roto-Machine.

    Considering some Fishman Modern 7's to go into my new Perle FR Ibby body to complement my EMG's in my Tele & the 57/66 set in my TFS6.

    After strictly using an Axe Fx II for the past year and a half I'm going to try the 4cm method with an amp. Already picked up a Vader 2x12. I'm thinking a Dual Rec is in order.

    ^4CM is great :yesway: I do that with my VHT 50/CL and really enjoy it. All the flexibility of the Fractal with the satisfying feel and "in the room" sound of a nice tube amp

    I'll get a new six next week, still havent decided between the Jackson Juggernaut HT6 Pro Series and PRS SE Mark Holcomb.

    Specs are fairly similiar but PRS has nicer pickups, but when getting the Jackson I'd have money left over for pickups. I prefer satin finishes, the PRS looks a bit cheap. I really liked the 7 string model of the jackson and prefer superstrats in general, but heard very good things considering the PRS quality. Currently leaning more towards the Jackson because I prefer the style but I still can't make the "what if" thoughts about the PRS stop.

    Just ordered another Monoprice tuner, they're on sale for $15.99 right now. Pretty solid tuner pedal for the price!

    putting everything else on halt for this. Ibanez just had to reel me back in. I know it is so much more likely to be a lemon being in the Iron Label range, but I've been working on my setup skills on some old guitars of mine, so I'm kind of prepared for the worst, it's just too hot not to get (and replace the hardware with chrome hardware.)[​IMG]
