I thought it was more of a "doesn't take criticism nearly as well as he gives it" situation, but you can make your own decisions.

I am certain it will at some point, but the way it was explained to me was that real-time audio processing isn't really compatible with the CPU of a desktop, no matter how powerful. It's more of a...

What you see as "overly complex" can also be seen as the incredible depth of possibility that the Axe offers. It's certainly daunting when you first delve into the tweak menus. I think after a few...

Interesting. Have you played an Axe-FX?

To me, Bias was a pretty decent program, but in terms of sound quality was somewhere between last gen and current gen POD units. The Axe-Fx was head and...

What gauge were the previous strings? Do you notice a change in action?

As with everything Gibson it's not quite as simple as yes or no. Studios have been thinner, but it depends on the year. 2002 I think might be a tad thinner than a Standard. They've messed around with...

Sounds like you've done all you can. Time to take it to a tech/luthier.
