Work Horse

GarethL, 20.01.2015
A lot of people are skeptical about modelling guitar technology. For me its an invaluable tool in my toolbox. I play a range of styles in shows where we simply are not afforded the time for guitar changes between songs for acoustic or altered tunings. I use this along with the hd500x so all the changes are manage with a footswitch. Honestly, the sounds you get from the various models are excellent and the ability to switch from a growling Les Paul to an acoustic at the tap of a foot is a blessing.

as far as the actual guitars goes its a well built solid,well sounding guitar that holds its own with some of my other guitars at twice the price.

The idea is great and the bits that work are really good but the bits that don't work, well they don't work. The guitar itself is stunning to look at and plays quite well. It sounds ok but is it worth the high price? The alternate tunings works really well, at the twist of a knob you have your tunings for your Stones songs etc and any other tunings you may need.
With the guitar modeling, the acoustic guitar sound was very passable and banjo and sitar also the same. What let the whole thing down for me was the 12 string guitar sound, it was awful. The G-B-E string sounded fine but the E-A-D strings in varying degrees sounded like the worst kind of fret buz you can imagine, almost dead. I look forward to trying it again when this problem is sorted out.
