That was My first thought. Mic the cab, put a rug down on the hardwoods etc. Oy.

Agree with the E-Filter, That is a hard pedal to use in between different guitars without making adjustment. Even the dialed in sound of it had too much peak, it was clipping the recording gear. Actually, most of the demo was clipped. Still I could tell how nice those guitars sounded... Its like you could feel how nice they sounded. I wish guys would think a little farther when doing guitar demo's and maybe use audio files recorded separately through audio mics, then paired with video files... a camera mic doesn't do guitar demo justice, ever.

Matt is no longer using the Gold Eagle Irwin inlay? I wonder if that is by request from the Irwin camp... I really dig the peacock though.

I really want a Bare Bones Wolf... Even with the lack of mic setup you can tell it sounds like the ultimate Strat. ME WANTEE

Yep yep
totally agree it's all in the hands!

that said, having the gear plays a part in "the tone" as well!

maybe a small part but it does play a part in getting things exactly right.

here are the same hands, but slightly different rig.

Wolf w/ stickers = $6800
Are you sure about that? That price seems accurate for the ones without stickers, unless prices have changed, the early wolf with stickers should be high 5s
