  1. Wow, there are certainly a lot of opinions. I like the idea of keeping most in cases and leaving one out for easy access. I might start a rotation so they each get to be out as I'd hate to give one of the guitars a complex. Thanks for the input from all, its nice to see what works for others. I particularly loved the stand made from a pew!
  2. What do most people think is the best way to keep a guitar? I generally keep mine in the case but I've heard from others that allowing the guitar to be kept on a stand allows it to breathe better. Am I wrong to keep it in the case?
  3. Just plates with the new strings on Sunday and I was surprised how good they sounded. The strings still feel slick to my fingers but it simply required me to pay attention to the chord shapes and positions, something I usually don't do. I wouldn't say that I'm a convert to coated strings but I am impressed with how nice they sound. Now, if they sound this good next month I may be a believer!
  4. I just tried a set of coated strings and sp far I hate them. My fingers slide around on them like a fat man on ice. I am considering taking them off after one day and restringing with non coated, but I am wondering if it might take time for them to start playing better. Anyone have experience they could share?
  5. I have no answer, but I'd like to add a question: can a latch be repaired on a case? I just bought a used guitar and it came with an ohsc but had one latch broken. Any suggestions?
  6. Bbg, about 20 some hours of use. I read that a lithium can give you 60 hours with this pickup and I plan to try that out. EA, that's hysterical!
  7. It would be nice if they put that in the manual. It says nothing about a flashing light, so I figured it wasn't related to the battery. I'm kind of annoyed BC I just have a couple weeks on these strings and now will have to put new ones on to change the battery. Lesson learned: change battery with the strings.
  8. I was playing live and in between songs moved to change the blend on the aura ellipse when I noticed the battery light flashing. I don't have the manual and don't know what it means. I know a solid light means the battery needs replacement but I don't know what the flashing light means. Anyone experience this before?
  9. 'A bottom range you will lust after' is pretty good.
  10. Well done, and the uke was pleasant to hear.
  11. I guess I was surprised that the more expensive mic images didn't sound better to my ears. Perhaps its because I am only used to playing with cheap mics. I've only played with different mics in a studio, and it always sounds different through the board.
  12. I am playing with the aura ellipse pickup in a songwriter deluxe custom that plays like butter. I've been trying out the different images and have found that #3 sounds great to me. Imagine my surprise to find out that image is from a sm57! Has anyone else played around with the images?
