    Picked this up today. Was at my GC last week, but I went out of town 1 hour before it came in and had to wait until today. Ibanez Artist. Three piece neck, one piece bubinga top, Super 58 pickups, and single and out of phase switching. All sound quite good. Would prefer silver hardware though. In the honeymoon phase, but plays well. Will do a new guitar day if it stays.

    How long have you had yours? Just picked it up today and only changed the strings. Need to give it a few days and see how it goes.

    ^^ I've had mine about a year and I'm very happy with it. I'm really liking the Super 58's.

    I just picked up a Sennheiser XS Wireless 2 lavalier mic. set and have a Behringer Feedback Destroyer on the way. I hope the feedback destroyer will do what it claims to do. I use these for Scout events and I'm usually pretty limited on mic and speaker placement options. We are also in areas surrounded by reflective surfaces. With my current handheld mic, I try to keep within a certain area to avoid feedback, but I would like to move around a bit more with the lavalier while having the handheld active for another speaker to use.

    Let the drooling begin. U so lucky. I love Ibanez but the Artist is the one I want the most. Had a AR250 bout a year ago but let it go. But the SUPERDUPER58s are killer pups. Play with enthusiasm.

    I see what you are doing with the grass background. If I was Gibson I would be coming after you....

    And it’s St. Augustine like yours. But Au Naturale. No fertilizer.

    I prefer the unfermented version more, but it's growing on me!

    The Feedback Eliminator is awesome. I have one, but I think it is called the 'exterminator.'

    I got these for $43 delivered. They are a 5.8 ghz wireless guitar system that is super simple yet simply works. More testing to come but they seem to handle my strat with midboost cranked or turned way down. No noise or dropouts and no change in tone that I have noticed so far.

    Look around for best price or other similar brands that are also 5.8 ghz (less interference than crowded 2.4, and much better than old UHF tech).

    I got one of these last week.
    It is a nice little practice amp.

    IMG_20190306_170301.jpg Picked this up a few months ago through Zzounds little payment plan option. It's actually a solid little practice amp, I was taking it to work when I had a security gig at UPS lol. The tonebridge app on Android has some pretty bad latency so I found an app called Deplike that works pretty well, just have to watch an ad or pay a seriously outrageous subscription to unlock all of the modeling options. Sounds good without the apps too though. Would definitely recommend.

    I like the look and concept and $50 price but wont the higher freq make for less distance typically (fun for walking around the bar) and wont digital vs uhf analog cause more latency?

    The stated range is “only” 300 feet. At 5.8 the signal will not pass through walls or solid objects as well as 2.4 or lower frequencies but if you are playing gigs bigger than this can handle, you can probably afford a better system with large external antennas. Also, 2.4 and UHF are both much more crowded bands, so more likely to have interference issues. I will probably never travel more than 30 feet from my pedal board and figured the price point was worth the risk. So far I am very happy.

    The digital processing is super simple with very little latency. Only a few ms. Adding the wireless latency to the Amplifire processing still does not add up to noticeable objectionable delay. Analog UHF has signal loss and other issues which is why it is rapidly dying out at all price points.

    Glad it is back with you. Seems similar to mine except for the pickups. The body, fretwork and finish are all very nice. But the jack feels cheap and the pots are dime sized. It does sound good though. Bet you make yours sing.
