I like the Lace Alumitone tone since I installed one on my Gibson Les Paul CM and I wanted more possibilities for my SG. So, I went ahead and tried something. My SG had Classic ’57 PAF and I don’t like them so much on this guitar. They are were perfect on my ES-339 but I wanted something different on the SG.
I needed an electroacoustic guitar to improve the covers recordings I am currently into. I was first aiming at a Gibson J-200 or maybe a Songwriter but I was so in love with the sound of my Sigma GCS-1 that (just before the Coronavirus crisis started) I finally pulled the trigger on the guitar I thought it was based on: the Martin 00-18.
This story started with my wish to use both my acoustic and electric guitars on my acoustic Marshall AS100D. The pedalboard setup started with the MESA/Boogie V-Twin that would give me the crunch for the E-guitars but it soon began to appear more complicated when I thought about using my Line 6 PODxt Live in the FX loop and ended up replacing it with the Line 6 HX Stomp.
Let’s summarize: 1 amp with 2 guitar channels: Channel #1 for the Line 6 Acoustic Variax + Channel #2 for my electrics (and my Martin electro acoustic to come).
My goal was to set and “build” a pedalboard that would be as efficient and compact as possible.
