    When I was trying out guitars at G4M, I used a Line 6. To be honest, its clean sounds weren't half bad. I didn't like the distortion though.

    Yea it takes ages to learn to finally set up the line 6 It took me 2 damn years to find out which settings do what because sometimes other settings are inbound in the mids and shit.. But put an 10band EQ behind your amp then you can do everything with that distortion! Love it.

    Quickly setup I got this on my baritone :

    Then there's this with my old prestige guitar :

    Or you could use the clean channel and put another amp behind it!

    Eh, who am I kidding, I use software modelers because I can't afford a triple rec, too lazy to even buy a hardware unit.
    Speaking of which I am this close to giving up on Guitar Rig for anything distorted. Twangy shit, fine, cleans, fine, good effects, fine, but the Uberchall model and the dual rec model both sound really samey and not all that good and that's about all you get for crunch.

    I'm so impatient. I really want to get paid so I can start working on this custom build.

    Being my first build it's gonna be way fun. I'll be sure to take pics or make videos of the progress.

    My guitars and amp.
    The amp is alright, but it was cheap so. :)

    The Strat on the far right is not mine though. It's my friends that has been at my house for the past 6 months and I just wanted to put it in the picture.

    It's scarily bizarre how much John Mayer sounds like Stevie Ray Vaughan in both guitar playing and singing.

    Edited:

    I just bought the body to my custom build..



    Already has a couple of scuffs but it's gonna be a lot more than scuffed when it's finished.



    Total paid towards build so far: 42.50

    Really? I've had no issue getting really thick metal tones with Guitar Rig 4. I've also had no issue with distortion.

    Congratu-fucking-lations.

    I'm aiming to spend less than 300 but a chunk of that price will be pickups alone. I want quality wood too but I also want it pre-painted so I just need to find an old debuilt part and hope it goes cheap.

    I want the guitar to sound good but I also want it to be what I see in my head so I'm focusing a lot on aesthetic too.

    I'd say less than 200 on everything except the pickups is my goal then I'll spare 50-100 on some decent used pickups. I really really want Texas Specials but my friend has offered me stock fender pickups with a single coil DiMarzio humbucker wired for the bridge, I'm not a huge fan of HBs but having one on the bridge isn't a huge issue because I rarely use it. mid-bridge is awesome in HSS though.
    Huh.

    That's a fun idea, I guess, looks like I could grab a blemished LP body for $130, generic neck for $110 or less and a handful of crappy parts and have an abomination for $300/400. Guess I'll keep an eye out for parts from here on in. It seems like there's some interesting stuff floating around eBaaaaaaaaaaaaaaAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH

    Really? I've had no issue getting really thick metal tones with Guitar Rig 4. I've also had no issue with distortion.
    It's not so much that you can't get one it's that by the time I've doctored something up that sounds tolerable it sounds like, well, Guitar Rig. I can't get any heavy tone out of it that's not identical to every other heavy tone I'd get out of it without external tweaking. Contrast with Amplitube, where the different metal heads at least sound different (even if a couple are spotty as hell.)

    I only have a crappy p&s picture, I'll get some pictures tomorrow on spring break (week of playing, YAY).



    This is a bit old, it's much more dusty.
    I promise to get some kind of "photoshoot" guitar pictures done.

    Edited:

    I should also mention that the wooden monster cable pictured above has broken. My bassist stepped on the tip by accident when I unplugged my guitar at the end of a performance. It works to an extent; It'll cut out if you move it wrong. That has been pretty embarrassing when it cuts out in the middle of a song, and you can't get it back.

    Minor upgrade to my G&L, I want to keep it as stock as possible but I felt like these pot knobs looked nice on the guitar instead of the typical tophat style knobs.

    Reference for originals here:

    Sounds like drone metal. Which is to say, pretty good for a Line 6.


    You need to get an HD500 I had one for a while and it really blew all the other Line 6 products I've tried out of the water. (Except for the Pod X3 Pro but that's just because you can run more rigs at once on a X3 pro and it has bass models; the HD500 sounds better for guitar though)

    You are aloud to discuss more than guitars here. Bass talk his also heavily encouraged. Remember this.

    Sup, just continuing from the old thread



    That's my gear still as it is, I haven't added anything to it and in all honesty I feel very pleased with my current setup.
    I have that spider :allears:

    If you want me to be totally honest, it still sounds really digitally, which I'm not a fan of. I just don't like the gain, it kind of gets annoying when notes are sustaining as it is sort of an undefined noise that doesn't add to the playing.

    It's a very digital tone

    Not a bad tone, but a lot of people dislike digital now and days. I think it's such a cold tone, but it's not bad at all.

    Yeah it's not bad and it'll probably sit in a mix fine it just sounds a little...meh alone. Reminds me of why I'm hating GR4 right now, that same sort of fizzly undefined blob trail on everything when you crank it.

    I should get some practice in transcribing songs. Maybe two songs a week could be a goal. Or I could try one song and record the results.
