Gibson Basses / Re: anyone in need of a Moog board for RD Artist?

The compression/expansion and brightmodes are more for freaking out IMO.

Bridge pup + expansion + chords + dirt pedal + big ass amp = thhe rythmn guitard starts to feel the existential threat.

That's my most of the time setting with the RD (or, to be fair, neck, normal mode, bass up, treble down, mudbucker simulation sort of thing for cleaner more melodic bits).  Granted don't use the RD as my main weapon.  The dude from Metz does, and on the records it certainly sounds like he uses bright mode sometimes.  FX mode is hard because it could be pedals.  RDs have a bit of a cult following with the heavier musics and (I guess I don't know what sort of stuff you do) I expect part of that is the non-normal modes (and the look).

... anyway, I was thinking the chordy rhythm bit I did on one song we recorded (used the Triumph on everything) wasn't sounding right; now thinking I should retrack it with the RD and how the bloody hell it didn't occur to me to switch (That's what happens when you wear to many hats in the studio, I suppose).

It looks great compared to the newly designed Flying V in my opinion, or is it the Star Trek logo?

It's kind of Kopi Luwak the other way around, isn't it? Ashes to ashes, dust to dust, crap to ... Ok, let's not wade there!

Still, this thread is somewhat of a let-down, I thought Gwyneth ate the coffee beans herself and you could then perhaps order ...  8)

Don't be surprised if she starts selling brewed coffee that has been recirculated through her nether regions. I have no doubt that some of her subscribers would buy it.

It's a solution in in search of a problem.

Of course we need this. With this people still don't hear the bass, but now they don't hear it perfectly tuned.

 :mrgreen:

The tuning won't be any more accurate, but the people who don't hear the bass can console them selves in knowing that the bassist saved 2 seconds tuning up.

I like it and I think an RD which has had a Moogectomy is the poorer for it.  But I would say that, because I have one, I guess.

I guess mine is the most extreme example of a Moogectomy out there and having had both I know what I love most...  :mrgreen:

Here's part of the guy's post.

Let me tell ya a quick and sad story. Few months ago I ordered a Memphis ES-Les Paul with a Bigsby. Price was around 3K. Guitar was brand new, and this is what I've found when opened the damn case;

The guitar had no f....g center mahogany block. Was empty. Yes you are reading right. THERE WAS NO MAHOGANY CENTER BLOCK. But the guitar left the factor that way.
The guitar, without its center block, had the ABR1 bridge screwed into the thin top and every time you were using the Bigsby, the entire bridge was wobbling back and forth. But again, the guitar left the factory that way.
That same guitar had the Bigsby completely crooked at an angle, off axis, so there were a mental tension pulling string on a side. And yes, again, the guitar left the factory that way.
Checklist was all "all good to go". This means nobody EVER checked this guitar, so that checklist was totally fake. I'm not saying that is the standard, but that is not about "the mistake of a man". This is more than that...there is some very shabby approach overall that allow crap like that happening.

Here's his inspection camera video of the insides, showing no center block.

I think he may have been mistaken (or he may have forgotten) as far as using it on stage because this photo clearly shows him using it in a performance. It certainly was not seen in many photographs.



I think this might be from some TV performance so it's probably a playback.
