    I see there are 2 output jacks on the guitar, even on the guitars without piezo. What are each of these jacks for?

    Can you explain how you guys come up with 8 million combinations? Do it take into account that there are 10 volume and tone settings az well?

    Please review the control function diagrams found on The Game Changer specs page for information regarding the jacks.

    Ok thanks Drew, I'll start

    Can we download the software just to understand what sort of wiring is feasible even if we don't have a game changer yet?

    is the iPhone app available?

    is the gamechanger in HSH config will come with pup cover or not ?

    Are there concrete plans to implement the gamechanger system on all EBMM models? If so, what is the timeframe for this? Will it be a build-to-order option?

    I see on the app screenshots that there is a button with a musical note. Does that provide a "preview" of the pickup combination?

    Also, is an internet connection required for running the app or just to connect to the bank database.

    Thanks and congratulations!

    There are no volume or tone settings are available. The Game Changer is all about pickup wiring, not volume/tone control/preamp settings.

    The math is quite complex, and I prefer not to prove it. However, noting that you can wire coils in combination of up to six coils in any order, in series or parallel, in or out of phase, the potential combinations increase dramatically with every coil added to the circuit. 4 coils results in about 9,000 presets; 5 coils results in about 250,000 presets; and 6 coils results in about 8.5 million presets.

    Just as an example, note how many combos there are with just these 3 coils (and there are more; underlined coils are "out of phase"):
    (1s2)p3
    (1s2)p3
    (1s2)p3
    (1s2)p3
    (1s2)p3
    (1s2)p3
    (1s2)p3
    1s(2p3)....
    (2s1)p3....
    2s(1p3)....
    (1s3)p2....
    etc....

    The software is still in beta form, and will not be released until further notice. There will be instructional videos and click through showing basic functionality in the near future

    There is no iPhone app available at this time

    All options of The Game Changer are shown/described as sold on The Game Changer website

    The Game Changer is only offered on the Reflex HH Bass, and the HH, HHP, HSH, and HSHP Guitar at this time.

    Thank you for the congrats!

    There is on the fly auditioning on the web app. At this time, web access is required. However, there have been discussions for lite offline capabilities.

    Is it possible to swap out the pickups with any off-the-shelf pickups? If so, how difficult would the process be compared to a typical guitar?

    (Wohoo! My first post! I think it tells you how excited I am of this guitar!)

    When will it start shipping, will it ship worldwide and when will the website be fully unlocked and we get all the finishes available?

    Thanks

    Thanks for the quick reply!

    One more thing that I haven't seen answered anywhere directly. I'm assuming that the guitar will work without batteries in it (or when they run out). In this case, does the guitar go to the default wiring? Do both bank A and B work?

    This thread is a cool idea. I bet it could eventually become a FAQ in the GC website.


    Edit: Don't mean to abuse, but I thought of something else that was mentioned before: is the silent circuit integrated in the GC for configurations that are not noise canceling?
