I haven't looked at my old guitar for more than 15 years, so I figured it's time for a revival, this project is long overdue.
The electric guitar we bought in my teens was a Washburn Mercury II MG300 LHB with Floyd Rose.
Read on to check the electrical connections in this guitar, look at real time DSP platform selection and more photos.
My old effects and cables were gone, too. This is sad, but it leaves room for their new and exciting digital counterparts to enter. I'm eyeing on the brilliant Guitar Rig 5 by Native Instruments and the open source, ultra low latency Bela platform developed by the Augmented Instruments Laboratory at my uni, Queen Mary, University of London. More posts are going to come on these projects later.
In stark contrast and as a sign of the times when I put this in the box, I found 3.5" floppy disk labels with the guitar. Remarkable how instruments keep their modern look in this otherwise fast changing electronics world.
