    Okay, here is an opinion from another angle. I KNOW that a lot of people think that, "Only a Les Paul is a Les Paul". BUT, for under $5k, you can pick up a PRS Modern Eagle 1for (probably) under $5k. What is so special about that? Well, it has a solid Brazilian Rosewood NECK. And is magic. Granted, it is a 25" scale. ("How unauthentic!") FWIW, mine is a singlecut WITH trem. I would, SERIOUSLY, stack it up against any Gibson LP I have ever played.....For playability, tone, balance, etc. The pickups (57/08s) are spectacular. And the original suede leather hardshell case, alone, some say, is worth $1k. So, you want to pay THOUSANDS above the otherwise market value of an R9 because it has a Brazilian BOARD? Well, cool. Knock yourself out. Not in my world. Ever hear about "the greater fool theory?" For that matter, I have had three Nik Hubers with solid Brazilian NECKS. My average purchase price? Roughly $4500. I have never played ANY Les Paul that I would pick over any of the three in terms of tone or playability. (I am not stupid.....I WOULD take an original 50s version. But I would flip it).

    To be honest, rosewood is rosewood to me. I prefer ebony and I also like maple enough. With the new trend of roasted maple there should be no finish required. I wouldn't recognize R9 rosewood anyway. Did Hamer use it on their guitars? I only have two Hamer guitars with rosewood board, I see no magic in there.

    I had one with a Brazilian board years ago. It was nothing I’d fork over that kind of money for. I got the one I had very cheaply.

    Regardless of platform, record all tracks to a click with at least two bars of space, but all tracks starting at zero. And also to the mix engineers preferred specs, usually 24/48. Before you go to bounce your individual tracks (to a folder you already made to send along...) put a square wave pop on beats one and two of the first measure of each track. This gives the mix engineer two square visual aids to line up if there’s any transfer issues, and then plenty of space for them to trim.

    So, you’ve never owned an R9 Brazilian?

    Is there something about S1 Pro you don't like, or find difficult to use? You see a good number of former PT users on the S1 forums, that's for sure. Why not just let the other band members install S1 using your credentials? I forget how many exactly off the top of my head, but you get three, or five, installs with your account. I saw the thread too late to comment, but I'm still trying to figure out why, with owning S1, you didn't go with a couple of Quantums for what you spent on the Apollo? 😉

    Joe Shlabotnik is a retired major league baseball player and, like all adults, an unseen character in the world of Charles M. Schulz's long-running comic strip, Peanuts. He was first referred to by name in the Sunday strip from August 18, 1963, although Schroeder mentions a pianist named "Joseph Schlabotnik" in the February 22, 1957 strip, and a storyline which ran between May 7 and May 10, 1963 revolves around the distress caused to Charlie Brown when his unnamed favorite baseball player is sent down to the minors. Charlotte is a female given name, a female form of the male name Charlot, a diminutive of Charles.[1] It is of French origin meaning "free man" or "petite". The name dates back to at least the 14th century.

    That bass has almost as many knobs as a Boogie amp.

    I dunno...the bridge cover doesn’t look like it’s tall enough to cover the Blobicz. Maybe it’s possible by adding spacers?
