i agree steve, but thats not really the issue i was discussing in respect to the all in one pedals. even ther same person playing the same lick with his own touch will have a different tone if using a strat or a les paul. my problem with previous pedals (all in one) is that the actual tone of the guitars gets masked a bit by the effects pedal. where it doesnt sem to happen when using different guitars using just maybe a single stomp box. i think the last peadal i had with all kinds of settings and things was a big digitech. no mater what guitar i put through it with the exeption of clean, everything just sounded like the digitech pedal. it didnt show the subtleties of the different types of pickups. be it a single coil or humbucking. witht he exception that the humbucking was a stronger signal.
i appreciate all the feedback, guess i'll just have to get one of these things and give it a whirl.
