QuoteI had asked the question before, but it got lost: is the same resource power available in the luthier kit, albeit sacrificing potentially greater footswitch comfort?
Quote"Auto-Tune® works based on the pitch at the nut, but you can fool it into thinking the nut is somewhere else. For example, suppose you want a dropped D tuning. Fret the second fret on the sixth string (F#), strum the strings, and initiate tuning. Auto-Tune® will "think" the F# is the open E, and tune F# to E. So now when you play the E open string, you'll hear a D as the string is transposed down two steps. "It gets better. Want that heavy metal drop tuning? Barre on, for example, the fourth fret while tuning, and now whatever you play will be transposed down four semitones. Being a wise guy, I tried this on the 12th fret and—yes, I was now playing bass. What's more, it actually sounds like a bass. Say what? Or try this: fret the 12th fret on only the 5th and 6th strings. Now when you play chords, you'll have one helluva bottom end. The [Peavey] manual gives suggested fingering to create various alternate tunings—open G, baritone, DADGAD, open tunings, and the like."

Cause I hate the "Ovation" sound... On the other hand, the very impressive JTV/HD500 vid (what great playing!) makes me wonder how much of the great sound is due to the HD500 and not the JTV? Good argument for both together, maybe? I had a JTV-59, but traded it back for a GR-55 after having people tell me my sound (especially the 12-string, which was a deal breaker) was not realistic. Maybe I should have tried tweaking more, I don't know- the handling was good and the controlling was excellent... Now that I have the GP-10, other modelers are realistically going to have to give me a distinct advantage before I expand further or change. Forced GAS control, so to speak
