  1. Hi, I know that gilad sometimes uses 2 different amps. One is a bass amp that he uses because of the super octave oc 3. Does anyone knows the order that he uses the pedals? thank you very much.

    1. Hi, I still have the workshop video from Combo Coaching Seasson that was on Youtube (it is not on youtube for some reason anymore). I guess you question is what is the chain path to the bass amp. In the video he states Guitar | Compresor | EQ | Bass Amp.

      1. Hi Vuk, I’d be grateful if you reupload the video! I had the video but lost it from corrupted memory card. Thanks!

  2. On the Baker there’s tape going to/from the tailpiece to the f hole? I don’t see an extra (midi?)pick-up. Anybody know what it is? I’ve only just discovered him, fascinating harmonies, sounds like two guitarists sometimes, love it all. Victor Baker lays great too, and another client, Romain Pilon.

  3. Does anyone know what the additional electronics and switch he seems to have bolted onto the front of his guitar?
