Quote from: germanicus on October 26, 2012, 04:49:23 PMJust played one at a GC for about 30 minutes.Chinese made guitar, ok quality. To be expected given price. The tuning worked without noticeable warble. I did have issues trying to get altered tunings in place. I fretted for a DADGAD tuning, and the high 'a' string didnt quite land properly. Im not sure why this was the case as I was under the impression that it continually analyzes and adjusts. This may have been due to the actual intonation of the guitar itself. It does a decent job with bends, but theres sort of a resistance to pitch changes (understandably) which takes a little getting use to. I Imagine this could impact your vibrato technique. I dont like how you are unable to uptune (digitally) a string without first tuning the string down, then fretting your alternate tuning offset, letting it pitch the strings to standard, then retuning the one string you want higher. It may be possible to do this easily with the future upgrade and break out box (as a stored preset), but the only way to uptune would be to physically tune the string once the altered tuning is set. For instance if I wanted to use a "CGCGCE", theres no way to presently do that with just its pitch shifting. Theres alot of tunings I use that require shifting upwards. I went in thinking if i liked it I would pick it up as a backup for my JTV, but it didnt knock my socks off. Jury is still out for awhile. Its a little under half of what you would pay for a JTV, but its not really compelling in that you dont have stored tunings (not yet at least, and even when they implement that in the future, it requires extra external gear and midi Program changes), and no modelling to speak of as yet. Its also not anyone near as nice a guitar as a JTV.

The auto tuning was amazing..stayed in tune all night. Other guitar player complained all night, he couldnt keep his strat in tune. He changed his mind about my autotune "piece of crap". Ha Ha Ha!!!!
