Very interesting comment, David.  I'd like to see your elaboration on
this.  I think I know where you are going with it. I gave up the synth
as well, several years ago....the hex-pickup variety that is. I still
use a synth-like algorithm in my effect unit...but for the most part I
try to get all I can out of the natural guitar sound and effect
