Re: Triple play again



Hi Per,

yes, absolutely I think it is great guitar. It was made in the golden 
years by the best japanese guitar crafters. I just changed the neck pickup 
with a Texas Special and the middle (wich I never use alone) with a Silver 
Lace Sensor. I was trying to find some other for the bridge, but after the 
tests (4 o 5 different pickups) I leave the original. It sound great for 
me. The hardware and the construction is great!
Ableton push is something that since many time ago I am wishing :) enjoy 
it! I just tried Shove (push 4 iPad w/ Lemur) and it works...but it's not 
the same. 

Best regads,

Ruben
