Well want to hear stupid....I started with the TSAR-1R which was cool, one day (as all good stories go) Reason were running a promotion which included these two verbs, being a TSAR-1R owner I was intrigued to see how much the bigger brother was. As there was no "was/now" on the store page I thought do a dummy sale and check what the total is, dumb move on my part, because the way they have there store and checkout etc I blundered and accidently bought the damn thing (Credit card details held on site grrrhhhh!!!!)... So the moral of the story is don't get to curious

I have the Trident A range plus some other Softube stuff in RE format and again would love to have the VST versions, but think that will have to be a dream at this moment in time..

Good going starting this post. I can only add some entertainment value at this time. I think I paid too much for the case for my new Martin 000X1AE, but it is a SKB road case. I paid about $10 over the Guitar Center Website price. But, I said the hell with it. I grabbed it. I wanted a smaller case than a bulky dreadnought type case, and this just fit perfectly like no case I've ever seen. Seems made to order. I'm pretty happy with the recent guitar purchase. Anyhow the case looks like this. Heavy duty, in a tight package. Guitar $499, Case $150.


Btw, I love that VOX you posted. What a smokin' guitar! I plaid a beat up ol' Vox in the early 70's and I remember to this day, how killer that guitar was/sounded. You may have corrupted me, after looking at a few more of them. Love that Tea Burst, and natural as well.

yeah i really like the vox... very very high gloss black single cut away. plays like a dream but i am STILL not sure if i like the CoAxe pups. i just think it would sound better with REAL p90s

nice stuff... though martin's are nice (but costly) but you gotta love a deal. i am still yet to get me a case for my kelly j60 but she is an odd size. although a jumbo... slightly smaller than a standard jumbo that is huge. i could probably get the perfect case from the company but i hate paying top dollar on anything... kinda stubborn that way.

I'm currently overseas for a time (military) and wanted a smaller guitar to take with me so I could have something to practice with. So I picked up a Taylor GS-Mini. It's what people might term a "parlour guitar". Small, concert shaped body. I'll get back to the guitar in a second.

I wanted to have a way to record ideas and things while I was out here but I obviously didn't want to have to bring along a ton of recording gear. So...I brought my iPad, a Focusrite Scarlett 2i2, USB hub, small desktop mic stand, my AT2020 microphone and an Arturia Minilab keyboard. All of that fit inside a medium sized backpack.

I had my wife ship me the guitar, not because I couldn't have traveled with it it's small enough that I could, but I just didn't want to haul it halfway around the world.

So I have my little mini-recording rig and it works well. A few iPad apps for things like drums and a little background stuff...a perfectly usable sketchpad.

The guitar though!! As small as it is I was thinking the sound would be compromised. And perhaps for a live performance it would be a little lackluster (although I wouldn't say that it's unusable by any means). However, recorded it sounds phenomenal! I've found in the past that smaller bodied guitars often sound quite good when recorded. The bass isn't as present and doesn't overload the microphone, so the highs are actually very crisp. As a studio guitar it may actually sound better than my Martin, or my full sized Taylor.

I was impressed to say the least. It really is a magical little acoustic. If anyone is looking for a guitar to travel with, or a campfire guitar, or really a fantastic sounding studio guitar, I'd highly recommend the GS-Mini. I'm having a blast with it.

I'm with hibidy. I've either decided the same out of necessity, or there are just other logistics involved! I can say that because I am one of I guess the few Northerners with a sense of humor.

To jBranam: I agree the P90's would be the way to go on the Vox. Too bad! CoAxe are great. Love em, (especially DiMarsio PAF's) but that Vox was meant for P90's. I like the black as well, but I have a 1971 Black Gibson Les Paul Custom "Fretless Wonder". It's beyond sick. By the laws of physics the frets are so low, it should not play. So no gee-tar in these parts gets to wear black.

well rocker i think the gear gods just like to play games. one minute they are nice... next minute they stick it to you and lokey... i am looking at the guitarfetish.com p90s they are dirt cheap and the majority like them. for those that complain... i don't think they understand you can adjust with caps and or resistors... but to each his own. i used dimarzio when i was younger... loved the obsolete MegaDrive humbucker. my les paul has a couple of seymore duncan's pups in it (sh2 jazz in neck and the sh6 distortion in the bridge) and i got them out of phase in the middle position of the 3-way switch so i get a LOT of diff tones from it. i am not real big on 'brands'... i am more concerned with the sounds. if it sounds right... i could care less who makes it. and matter of fact me and a buddy of mine are gonna get into building pups. he wants to build his own for his bass and i just want to experiment! he has two homemade winders almost completed so we might be in business soon. (when i can afford to buy components... the wire ain't cheap and i want two gauges) if i will quit buying plugs!!! now that i have some quality plugs... it just makes me WANT MORE!!! lol

again guys... this thread don't belong to me! it belongs to everyone. i will just take the blame for starting it. but i think we needed a gear thread. what we all have in common is S1 and the love of our DAW... but THAT is where the similarities end. this thread is so we can discuss our preferences, what we use and for others to look over when deciding on purchases.

cheers to all
