actually, it's pretty amazing, here is how it works:
1) do I want clean or distorted or BLENDED dist+clean ? use 3 position switch
2 )how loud do I want the distortion compared to the clean? each clean and dist have their own volume for perfect blend.
3) how much distortion gain and attack do I want ? crank the seperate dist gain/comp knob
4) how much distortion do I want for EACH string (adjust each string from the back plate = thank you analog hexaphonic distortion with 6 handwired distortion boxes hidden in the electronics, bye bye crappy lifeless tone roland vg8
5) do I want mono out (1 amp) -> then each pan knob (6 , 1 per string), becomes each string's individual volume
6) do I want stereo out (2 amps) -> then each pan knob adjust the position of each string in the stereo space. use the rare splitter box it comes with to send left and right to different amps.
7) adjust master volume for overall loudness
adjust master tone knob for overall tone
9) sound like EVH on Top Jimmy
10) play like EVH and don't forget to use the Floyd.
In all honesty it's pretty cool and different!
The old guitar player for Bob Dylan invented it and because he
is good friends with Eddie, voila a guitar for Eddie to use circa 80's.
Steve Ripley is the inventor.
He is a really cool guy!
