    Christmas was good this year!

    So the wife gave the blessing to go ahead and get a guitar. I had originally found a left over JP 6 BFR Roasted Neck that I was going to get but just found out it sold a few weeks back. Choice #2, The Game Changer! It should ship tomorrow and I should have it early next week. I got the HSH with piezo and trmolo option with a rosewood fretboard. I freaking cannot wait. Here is a picture of the exact guitar from the MM page.

    You will love it! The pickups are amazing, the neck is fantastic, the sounds you can get from the Game Changer will make you grin!

    I played one a few months back and fell in love. I would have loved to have stayed and played it longer but the wife was giving me her impatient look. She gave the blessing on this one amazingly but I had sold off some more gear to afford it so that is probably why but when it does get here, it will be played quite a bit.

    Congrats! They sound amazing!

    I dunno, possibly. It felt bigger than a Silhouette neck. Which is the thickest necked EBMM?

    When I played the Game Changer at a Music Man store in Denver a few months back, I also played a BFR Roasted Neck JP6. Compared to it, the Game Changer had a much fatter neck. The JP6's neck was very thin. Last year I bought my youngest son a Sterling by Music Man Sub Silo3. With it, the neck felt similar to it but I don't recall how much different it is? I will find out tomorrow though. I do remember from playing the Game Changer a few months back that it was still very comfortable to play with the thicker neck and from what I remember it didn't feel all that super thick to me. It felt nice and playable but the circumference of the JP 6 neck was different.

    Yes this will be. There are so many of them that I love though but with all of the infinite tonal options of the Game Changer, this had to be the first one. I was also looking at a BFR Roasted Neck JP6 that was used and in the same price range but it just sold. Had it still been available, I would have gotten it because I love the roasted necks but ever since the Game Changer was released, I have also wanted one of those too. I can't wait to get this in the studio too. I have some good friends that are full time recording artists and next time I meet up with them, I am going to look forward to seeing the giddy looks on their face when I let them try this thing out.

    So you've had almost a week with it. What are your favorite presets?

    You know that is a good question. I got the guitar Friday night and started playing around with it almost all day Saturday. I have not had the chance to experiment with any of the online settings yet but will be soon. So as far as the stock settings go, there are a few that I like. Really though, I am still learning this guitar but at the same time I am also learning how to play again myself. I am also teaching my youngest son how to play too so I haven't done a lot of tonal experimentation yet but do plan on doing so hopefully sometime soon.
