    Did you consider something like Patreon for people who want to pitch in and help out in financing? Or do you think that wouldn't work for something like this?

    So are those of us that purchased the game changer guitar just screwed? How will we maintain the ability to do what we paid for (Change pickup combination ) if you do not have a working application or keep the web browsers working? I SEE THE GUITAR IS OFF THE WEBSITE so is the Game Changer official dead?

    I don't work for EBMM but my guess would be that it's not currently profitable to continue to accept orders on new Game Changer guitars and basses, but that they will continue to support the current application for those of us who have the instruments. I also wouldn't be shocked if they revisit the technology sometime in the future.

    That sounds pretty reasonable.

    Keep in mind that that technology is still being used- it provides switching for the Majesty, for example (though it's not open to configuration the way it is on the GC instruments). So I imagine we'll see more of it one day.

    Patreon is a website that essentially allows users to subscribe to specific "creators" of a wide variety, as a way for users to more or less directly pay creators for their work instead of it having to go through some large scale platform that takes a huge cut of the money. I believe it's most commonly used for things such as podcasts, comics, and blogs. Not sure it would work well for something like this, but I could be wrong.

    For the last time EB MM. What is going to happen with the ability to keep Game Changer ability to edit the pickup combinations through the software?

Sweet jeebus, those upgrades made an already magical guitar even magicaller. It's not perfect at every single thing, but it's perfect at every single thing I want.

    I couldn't help but notice that there's a spot on the circuit board for a sixth pickup. How would one go about making that work, I wonder? Would the app detect the sixth coil to allow configuration? Just think of the possibilities.
    I have a couple PRails and Iím considering swapping one into the neck position on my HSHP. How does the rail sound combine with the middle pickup?
    A better question might be, if you had it to do over again, would you?

    I have a GC bass I bought about a year or two ago. I have other Reflexes and play them more due to their intuitive nature. I'm finally trying to get the GC to work on an iPad 2nd Gen. I bought a Line 6 Midi II device to connect. I'm having a helluva time getting everything to work. Does the app actually work with Gamechanger? There's no real tutorial or instructions on how to actually set it up and use it. I have found brief FAQ replies and such that hint that it should work. But it seems to be a secret. Has anybody been successful with the IOS app? Like many others I fear the web app will eventually be shut down and the whole thing will be a loss. I would like to get the IOS app working if at all possible so I have a backup application. Truth told the web app should have been a windows program that could be run on a decently modern windows computer that has all the features of the web app.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    And it would be totally useless for those of us that have Macs. Web app works for windows and Mac so why they probably went that route
