I used to gig a lot. My last year playing a bunch we did 189 shows.  I did it by incorporating an entertainment company that exclusively represented my band, and then calling venues as representation on behalf of the band.  Our bookings skyrocketed.

They were nice and bright at first but they dulled really quickly. And it wasn't a warm mellow tone. It was a dead string tone. Poor sustain, etc.

I suppose they are fine if you want to change strings 4-6 times a month but I don't have time or $ for that.

I just tried those fancy black coated strings from DR and pulled them right back off after 3 weeks.  They go dead so fast.

If my memory serves me correct, Jeff (Topdown) had one when I was at Chordiestock, but it was a while ago and I may be mistaken. If he does not respond here drop him a line, but I agree with the others, you need to play one and get your own feelings for one.

He does! His guitar is the reason I thought I wanted one. Sounds and feels great.  But then again when I played it I couldn’t see the price tag. smile

I played one because I also wanted an indestructible guitar.  A friend who was with me said "what would you do with an indestructible 2500 dollar guitar?" The point he was bringing up is that if I drop that kind of cheddah on an axe, I'm going to treat it well. I wouldn't toss a guitar that expensive in the back of my car for a week even if it was heat proof; I'm too careful with instruments.

At first I liked the sound. Then I played it next to a few other instruments in the same price range. You're giving up a ton of tone quality for durability. It sounded thin and underwhelming.

The store also had a real purty Taylor 514ce that I played. It totally spoke to me. So I got that instead.

May I offer a theory critique?

It would work insofar as it would make the signal hotter but the tone may not be what you’re accustomed to.  So I think the utility would be pretty limited if you’re trying to replicate a stage tone.  If you’re just trying to have a guitar loud enough to practice on without respect for tone, I bet it would work.

Do you have samples of the guitar/voice stuff?

Tell us more about your rig. Guitar direct to amp dry, no processing? Same for Vox?
