Very nice! I had a IC400 myself a few years back, but passed it along. I really wish I hadn't.
It's funny that you mention the sound being harsh. My IC400 was easily the most mellow sounding of my humbucker equipped guitars. Lots of bass and low mids, but the upper mids and highs were...
The first Les Paul I ever really wanted was one of the 90's wine red Studios, back when they have ebony fretboards. I'd still love to pick one of those up some day.
In the meantime, I have this. Picked up used a number of years ago from Greg Platzer. Not much original on it besides the...
Glad you're enjoying yours. I picked up one of the originals when they first came out, and I picked up one of the newer ones a few years back out of nostalgia. Both sound like broken vacuum cleaners to my ears, but to each his own!
I've seen that guitar before, in the ad section of Guitar Player or Premier Guitar magazine. If anyone has access to any issues from a few years back, it might be worth a look. I may flip through a few issues when I get home.
The Micro and Nano Pogs just provide octave up and octave down pitch shifters. They have three controls which adjust the relative levels of the octave signals and the dry signals.
Just listen to the videos.
I'm pretty happy with my current setup, although I'd like to get my P-90 equipped Les Paul worked on a bit.
I'd also like a Gretsch, or a guitar in that style. Maybe a Reverend with Filtertrons and a Bigsby in orange.
A neck on a guitar is just a solution in search of a problem. I wish Leo Felcher had never invented them. If you can't play guitar without a neck, electronic tuners, effects pedals, and an amplifier, then you're just not a very good guitar player.
I've had Les Pauls and an SG, Teles and Strats. Sold the SG, and while I sometimes regret it, I never did quite like the way it balanced. GREAT upper fret access though, and easy guitar to play seated.
I had an Ibanez Iceman for a while, but moved it on. It was very nice, but the tone...
There are a couple of guys locally who could probably do it (including Keith from Machine Head Pedals), but I just haven't had the motivation to get it done. It's an EASY fix (switch one capacitor for another), but it requires being handy with a soldering iron, and I'm absolutely terrible at...
I've heard the footswitch problem is a pretty easy fix.
America's Pedal - FX switch repair
I just gave away my last DOD pedal rather than deal with the broken switch issue (the aforementioned Grunge).
Now I just need to figure out how to fix the switch on my Ibanez Classic Metal...
