    I wish they made this colour with an Evertune. The all black and the white with maple look a bit... Meh.

    I got my Axe-Fx III purchase invitation today. I don't know if I should order it now or skip and see if there will be a holiday discount. Thoughts? I have the Axe-Fx II and I'm not sure when I'll sell it. I need both in hand for a little while in order to recreate my patches on the III.

    So I was gonna wait a buy a Bill & Becky L500XL and install it into my PRS SE277 Soapbar, which would require some woodwork to get it to fit. Not a lot; just drilling holes for the pickup rings, but it should fit since the L500-series pickups fit in P90 routes. Plus the benifit of the pickup ring covering up the extra routing.

    ...But I forgot that Bill Lawrence USA makes the L550XL (the L500XL in a soapbar-style ring/housing).

    So I bought that on sale with a coupon. :D Also gives me a chance to see how much difference the BLUSA is to the B&B.

    So, back to passive with the SE.

    I just got offered a custom EVH 50w for my rm100. Not likely that I can pass that up. And a Butcher for my 6505mh. Things are looking up.

    I don't own one, but personally I wouldn't bother. Not like the II has become any worse by the existence of the III. If you're happy with your current sound, nothing I've heard from the III sounds significantly different or better.

    Now I know that I'm gonna buy a new guitar soon, but I am wondering to myself:

    Do I need an Evertune or not?

    If so, I'd go with this:

    And if not, then I'd rather go with this:

    Are you willing to potentially sacrifice a bit of tone and sustain for extreme levels of tuning stability?

    Would you like the possibility of locking your low strings so they don't go sharp when picked hard in lower tunings?

    Are you prepared to fuck around for what seems like hours with an allen key that keeps falling out, and then pissing about a bit more with a tuner trying to remember what "zone 2" is, and which zone you want to be in, any time you want to adjust tuning?

    I'm not really selling this so can someone go "pro Evertune" for balance reasons please?

    Good to get a not so positive outlook now and then on the subject, the internet is saturated with positive comments. It honestly seems like a hassle, and apparently the tuning is too good, which causes other guitars to sound bad. Not to mention intonation problems when tuning up or down in zone 2 where the saddle shifts. I'm very unsure.

    The Edge version of this is up for grabs locally, mint/new condition, $800. Here I just got small pile of new gear and can't justify. Such a good deal, such bad timing....ugh!!

    I love mine but I have other guitars to supplement where it lacks. I don't bother messing with knowing where zone 2 is and stuff and I don't think Ola Englund even does. You just fiddle with it a bit until you like it. That's what I do...or I should say did, because I haven't touched it (not even felt the need) since that first time. It's a nice tool. Wouldn't have it as my main axe with the sustain lacking a bit though, I like long bendy passages a lot.

    Bought a bucker bridge for my Tele. Instead of making it a twang-banger, I'm just gonna all-out make it into a rock machine. :lol:

    My router's gonna get a workout. Jesus.

    What am I doing with my life...

    I'm buying this instead of investing any more time in making/tweaking presets on the II XL+ and investing any more money in it by buying the old MFC-101 MKIII. Will get this and wait for the new foot controllers.

    Traded my ec1k + cash for a OG Ibanez mc300, in pretty rough cosmetic shape but it’s all original but missing truss rod cover and rear cavity cover. Dont know if I want to sell it to build a new pc and get out of the guitar game or keep it.
