then buy a used rc-2 or jam man for around 100 and you have a lot of versatility

they are a bit pricey over there (UK/Europe) correct? I always put that down for the reason people seem to hate them.

Over here they are so cheap that theya re kind of a no brainer if you want a c ...

the only mod i bothered to do with my CP jag was switching the pickup switches so that up = off, as opposed to down. Means i don't accidentally switch things off whilst i'm playing.

I don't think mine are ambitious enough to warrant a game plan:

You guys got a gameplan? I had all these crazy ideas last year, but they never came into fruition because I didn't make a plan of action. I think it's necessary!
