Hi!!

I've been reading about the quality and awesomeness (is that a word ?) of the Navigator guitars for years.
And I was dreaming of buying one of their Les Pauls
Two years ago, I found a guy in France (I'm french) who were solding one at a very fair price. So I bought it instantly without even trying it !
And I'm more than happy. It sounds like a "tele on steroids".
I've had a Gibson Les Paul Axcess for 10 years and I sold it right after. It couldn't match the Nav !

First some pix :
Actually the burst is more orange than in the pix

And here's a video where you hear it. I used my Strymon Iridium to record it so you can hear it played through many different configuration.

Nice axe and great demo!
I also have an Iridium, it s a pretty good amp / cab / room emulator.

Thanks !
I love the Iridium, I've been only using is since I bought it last.
I see that you have a Kemper. How would you compare it to the Iridium ?

Actually the amp emulation is great... i love all 3 amps and the IRs are amazing too. The room setting is perfect for me... i al not big into effects so this is more than enough.
I do feel the headphone out is not great though, it is noisy and the sound definition is not as good as when i play the Iridium through my Kemper.
Of course it does not have the versatility of the Kemper in amps range, drives range and effects... then again I am not a big effects guy and I think the drive already available in the Iridium does the job very well.
I find it is an amazing portable solution you can move about anywhere.
Though to be honest, i find myself running it through my Kemper for the reasons mentioned above. The reason i run it rather than simply playing the Kemper profiles is i like the simplicity to dial a tone versus browsing through dozens of profiles.

Thanks for your feedback.
That's the main reason why I bought the Irdium, it's plug & play !
Most of the time, I use it alone, but I think it's sounds better with an overdrive before.
Maybe because I love my King of Tone.

You have a great guitar collection !
Is there a thread where you presented them ?
