  1. Sounds good, I am in no rush at all. :)
  2. I will look into your tools cozy, and I can probably get the tools to work properly in bootcamp. Generally, it is more or less a combination of workflow problems. I do all my work in OSX and all my tools are there, I only keep Bootcamp the occasional game or bizarro legacy program. The other half is that I am more of a video editor, rather than image editor person; I am somewhat awful working in Photoshop or Pixelmator. Either way, I will give it another crack once I have the time and patience to try again.
  3. Crosspost from another thread. Has anyone managed to make a decent pair of custom Gretsch style game inlay? I have searched, but that route got almost nowhere. For clarity, I mean the hump block, even though the neoclassical is nice too. It is a silly thing, but it adds a little more immersion to the game, I figured maybe someone here might have had done it themselves. I tried, literally spent over an hour with the editor and some janky inlay pictures, but on OSX that part of the toolkit just refuses to work properly.

I can try to find better pictures if someone wants to try, I am just hoping that there is another Gretsch fan this might interest, I am not really expecting anyone to kill themselves for my inlay idea. I can try and find better pictures, or take some myself but right now my guitar is strung so I have just been using GIS'd images. :)
  4. Thanks for the suggestion, I will post it in that thread. I will try to make an image, but I am fairly abysmal at stuff like that.

  6. I know this is not what you want to hear OP, but I would get the realtone cable. It will save you a lot of headaches and you can usually find one on sale at some point. The RS1 cable is the same one as the 2014, so if you can go that way too if it is cheaper.
  7. My only fear with those strings and rocksmith is that you develop too much of a crutch, expecting strings to be colored all of the time.
  8. Yeah, it is pretty much all preference, there is no 'right' answer as far as gauge and brand go. I prefer lighter strings because it feels like I am fighting the instrument less, but others go the complete opposite. I keep my LP style instrument with thicker strings because it is nice to have the option and it just feels right with that instrument. It really is a matter of whatever works for you, do not let anyone tell you otherwise. While I would suggest experimenting, something to consider is that when you change gauges you will almost certainly have to readjust your intonation for the new gauge. Most guitars it is not super difficult or anything, but if you are afraid of that kind of stuff it is something to consider as well. Most people get a comfort zone of string gauge/type and brand that they like. I have played through most of the major brands myself and have my own preferences. As far as changing goes, I personally draw the line when they are noticeably rusty. The D'addarios and Dunlops (my preferential brands) usually last at least a month before that starts to happen, give or take a few weeks depending on the humidity and how much I wail on them. I know some people play them until they literally break, and some people will change them almost constantly so they always have that wonderful new string feel. Whatever floats your boat. Also, wipe your strings when you are done playing. It takes like one minute and it will greatly enhance the life of your strings. So basically everyone here has given you good advice. Last thing, is that I would spend more time with any decent brand names regular strings before moving onto things like NYXLs. NYXLs are nice strings, but they are 2x the cost and in my opinion pretty diminishing returns unless they offer you something that you really want. I played through a few packs of the expensive strings I got on sale and found them to perform fairly similarly to the same brands regular strings, and in the NYXLs case they did not last any longer either. YMMV.
  9. Personally I think both the 490s and 61 Zebras are excellent pickups. They are fairly versatile, but they really hammer rock songs especially well. Then again I do not play Metal or stuff like that, so maybe they are less than stellar for that.
  10. For that price you might consider the CV series Strats, which from what I hear are pretty decent. I have a CV Tele though, so I am not really speaking from personally experience about that model.
  11. I have a Mustang III v2 and think it sounds phenomenal if it is tweaked properly.
  12. I can play on anything, but I guess my preferred would be Jazz III or .96 Pink Tortex.
