    I don't have anymore details. I just thought he had it modified. Maybe I'm thinking of Paul Gilbert and his ADA MP-1.

    About the "Modified" Gp-1000 all I know is that there are two versions.. one is the modded Marshall version and the other the modded Fender deluxe version. I guess Alexi used the Marshall modded version.

    Yeah. The Fender version is also known as the '87 version and the Marshall version is also known as the '88 version.


    Arcane, thanks for the GP-1000 settings, they're in the first post.

    The 87 and 88 are FAR more similar than most people seem to say.

    I'll try to record some comparison clips some time.

    Roope has 2 black ESP Random Stars,If you look closely they have different hardware colors.

    Chrome Hardware Star=Drop C
    Gold Hardware Star=D Standard.

    Not that I can tell. My setup has been a little weird lately (should rewire and organize sometime), so an A/B test is kind of out of the question at this point.

    I have heard about a "transitional" model between 87 and 88 that closely resembles the circuit of the 88. Maybe that's what my 87 is and might explain why they sound so similar.

    I'd crack 'em open to visually see if they're different at all, but holy shit - that would require un-racking the damn things and unscrewing 12 screws...not to mention putting all that stuff back together. I'm a busy (lazy) man.

    @Stonecoldsoul07: I dont have enough time now to watch cry again but isn't it a bit weird that you can't see him changing guitars?

    Nope, i believe its from the FME 2006.

    Actually i dont care which whammy pedal it is, but i'm making a huge post about alexi's gear. And i want it to be precise.

    I actually dont have a clue which wah it is, because the input is in the front, and not on the (regular) side.
