    For me, I keep the rig as simple as possible, in order to avoid hassle or issues, and be instant-flexible... Simply because it is required by my big band !


    One checked guitar and amp - sometimes two, just in case - and a very few pedals, 2 or 3 at maximum.


    I used to play with a compact pedalboard, but I don't carry it anymore... Maybe I'll be back to it one day ? But I'm never sure to have the place to put it at my feets ! o_O

    Hard to Think there's people who don't use the bridge pickup.
    I'm Using the bridge for about 90%

    I'm trying to branch out. But as I mentioned, I'm half of duo and like having the extra body of the neck. On the Country Club, the neck is fuller but also has plenty of bite to it. The middle position is actually the most mellow.

    The Bloom midi sounds interesting and very cool. If you want to try an eq, Check out the source audio eq. It has two circuits so it can either work in stereo, or you can have the eq placed in 2 different places in your signal chain (and that can be assigned to different presets). It is also super programmable so you can for example hook it up to an expression pedal and gradually shift it between 2 different eq presets. I've never used it but if I didn't have a silly fetish for analog I probably would have bought it over the free the tone eq.

    Because I never was able to switch different guitars on my rig I got at least two identical guitars for the stage. So I can switch them in case a string breaks. My rig is usually tailored to one type of instrument. If I had to switch between a Strat and a Gretsch I would have to make several adjustments.

    And another possibility is using a GK guitar with a VG-99. You can go from standard tuning to Nashville, Open G, Single Coil, Humbucker, and more, the the touch of a button, plus have just about every effect you might want.
