  1. Haha, my pedalboard is nothing to brag about. It's not even a board actaully because I don't have enough pedals to need one, lol. I mostly use a Boss Blues Driver though my Super Champ. Then I also have a Russian Big Muff, and an MXR Stereo Chorus.
  2. That was a reasonable response so i'll post a reasonable question. Who is the Firebird X for? Apparently it's not for us, because we're Luddites who cling to old designs. Is it for beginner guitarists? Well with a pricetag of $5500 I doubt it. People seem to be assuming that even though we all hate them, they're going to sellout anyway. I don't see that happening, not at that price. There's a few people who have positive things to say about the Firebird X, but most if not all of their arguements boil down to "yea, it looks like it would be fun to play with". I bet you that opinion changes when they see the pricetag. It's a gamble that isn't worth burning a $5500 hole in your wallet. I used to have a Fender Frontman 25W amp, and it had the same amount of amp modeling and built in effects that the Firebird X does. It was 150$. The super-advanced techo guitar Firebird still needs an amp to play, so any digital amp renders it useless. Apparently this is for upper-middle class guitarists who only play at gigs using P.A systems.
  3. You might want to check out a little movie called The Abyss.
  4. Cool Les Paul. The only type of SG 'reimagining' I want to see is Gibson bringing this back.
  5. I started Guitar Lessons when I was 8. Hated it, and it almost destroyed my intrest in music. Never again. Self-taught since the age of 13. B)

    First SG

    I went it with cash to buy a Standard, walked out with a Faded. Just goes to show price is not directly realative to the guitar being 'better'. Standards, Specials, and Faded models are all pretty much identical in any way that really matters, everything else is just asthetic. The low finish on the Faded lets the guitar resonate better and it feels more comfortable in my hands. To anyone who wants to bring up looks, well.
  7. "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" is a lesson Gibson needs to learn in more fields than just website management. If there's one thing I hate it's pointless updates for the sake of appearing hip and trendy as opposed to offering any sort of useable features. The layout is more cramped, avatars are too small to be worthwhile, and it's more of a pain to post. Awesome upgrade guys.
  8. So we've "upgraded" to a more cramped theme and downgraded the resolution of avatars. Awesome.
  9. To you. Like I said, the Big Muff was never marketed as a Fuzz Box, so that analogy is based solely on peoples impression of the tone from it. Therefore, it sounds like a Fuzz to the point where thats how it's generally referred to.
