Live sketch #2 - "Take Your Time" (Live Guitar Looping)

Here's a little improvisation I made today. Electro-Harmonix Chillswitch is a super cool pedal and it works soooo nicely with Digitech Whammy 4. Enjoy!

Harley Benton S-580 WR review - Part 3: Sights, sounds and the final judgement

17.5.2014 Important update! 
I've been having some problems with the low neck angle (=high action) of this guitar and while the neck adjustments made the playability better they didn't completely solve the problem. So here's what I did: Harley Benton S-580 WR Mod - Part 1: Fixing the low neck angle

“I’ve studied the early live footage. Townshend’s SG, when ‘windmilled,’ responds with an explosive power that can’t be explained merely by the force with which the strings are struck. More study is required, in that regard.” -Dr. Ricky Fromus

Okay, let's talk about tone. I've been playing my Harley Benton S-580 through my regular amp setup (Fender Super Champ XD) for about a week now and I have compared the tone to my other humbucker guitars. In the first two parts of my review (Part 1 and Part 2) I was a bit skeptical about the stock humbuckers since they sounded muddy and muffled through my portable rig (soundcard-iPad-Jamup app). So, are the stock pickups really that bad?
