That worked great! I'll try that, if my pedal ever arrives.

Boss have clearly had a quiet word with Andertons to put you on their Black Friday list.

Well DHL tell me it'll be delivered tomorrow but gear4music say next week. 🤔 (said Lee77 in a hushed voice to avoid fretmeisters attention)

Oh my a programmable SY-1, with a superb feature set!!

And from the reviews I've seen, this is very much aimed at both guitar and bass markets.

@Woodinblack - you are costing me an absolute fortune this year! On the plus side you've just sorted my Xmas pressie out! (And my third attempt at Panda FI ownership may well now be short lived...) 

Edit: I may have spoken too soon, apparently you need special connectivity to get the most of this, rather than normal pickups, and a budget of more than £800 for one of these. Looks like my FI is going to survive to another day!

Well, it had to be coming, after the SY-1 made the more expensive things look bad value, and with the GR-55 being pretty old now, there had to be something for the GK13 people. And this looks like both a SY/GR combined, which is the obvious next choice.

And yes, the promo video shows that it is very much designed for both markets (which they overlooked with the GR-10).

Well, as you know, my lifes goal is to cost you money :D

It is very tempting, but at the moment I am at the limits of my spending unless I sell some things!

Oh look, they have been busy:

 

It's something when a pedal demo is better than 95% of the music out there in the charts...

Have you checked using someone elses browser that this isn't just actually directed at you personally?

I'm cancelling the order.

Might get the C4 instead.

Completely understandable! 

And hopefully Andertons will finally be stocking the SY-1s when you're done being a computer programmer and ready to sell your C4 (ask Kev...), although you never know, it might just be the explosive pedal you've always been after! 💣

You know the SY-1 will appear in stock the minute you order a C4, right?

I’m still feeling pretty immune to this one after the demos I’ve heard. Also, I’ve taken the plunge on a MIDIBass (if my deposit ever flipping clears) so I’ll be able to use any synth I like on bass!

Be interested to hear how it works in action. I must admit the SY1 cures my need for synth backup when playing, but I am no longer chasing the actual synth driver as I have figured the bass is just not a good instrument for it, and I now have a linnstrument which gives a lot more for the same string layout, if you see what I mean

Yeah agree - some pedals just don't grab our imaginations, for sure.

Obviously differs with each of us as to precisely which pedal, but I can certainly relate to one of our fellow synth pedal lovers admitting he's not found the inclination to touch his C4 since getting it several months ago, whilst loving his new fretless bass.

I've had a similar experience with my FI's since getting my first one 18 months ago. Not really touched them - but have loved the new basses I've been fortunate to get my hands on. Maybe it's time to face the reality of my lack of enthusiasm and get my most recent Panda FI replacement moved on.

I guess it reminds me that we're first and foremost bass players and then somewhere down the list, computer editing boffins!

      The Godin ACS SA is a beautifully made semi-solid nylon-string electric guitar with synth access. Used acoustically it is loud enough for solo practice.

      The neck is like that of a regular classical guitar but less chunky, with a nut width of approximately 49mm (1.15/16in).

      The nylon-string output from the well-balanced piezo pickup under the compensated saddle is via a standard 1/4-inch jack and is controlled by a volume slider and 3-band EQ sliders with switchable mid frequency. Battery power consumption is extremely low.

      The guitar can also function as a synth controller when connected to a Roland or Axon guitar synth using the included 13-pin cable, through which it also draws power for the synth circuitry. The fourth slider controls synth volume, and the two push-buttons correspond to S1 and S2 in the Roland system. I used to have a guitar synth, and this guitar tracks far better than any add-on GK pickup I have used. If you don't want to use the synth function you can safely forget about it though! 

      It is currently strung with D'Addario Pro-Arté hard-tension strings. This does not make the guitar 'harder' to play - on the contrary, you can dig in more (especially with a plectrum) without causing buzzing and tuning issues. They could do with changing, but I am including a fresh set plus a set of Savarez strings as spares.

      I played this very guitar, with a plectrum, on this demo: Don't Speak solo

      Comes with thickly padded Tribal Planet gig bag (with neck support), instructions, correct Allen key for the truss rod, and Schaller strap locks to match the strap buttons on the guitar.

      There are a few minor scuffs and scratches, otherwise the photos give a good indication of the guitar's overall condition. The dots in the close-up pic of the bridge are tiny raindrops btw!

      Price is £625 £575 £525 collected from Swindon, Wiltshire. I can't offer courier delivery as I don't have a hard case so as to be able to insure against damage. However, I may be able to deliver to your home or workplace in person for a contribution towards my diesel costs - PM me with your location if you want to discuss this option. No trades thanks.

      Only been used at home so in good condition.
      Up for sale as I've bought a Helix so I'm starting to sell off my old pedals, hence no trades, sorry.
