    Never owned a Mustang, but my best friend in HS had a '68 convertible.

    I still remember a great GP review of both of those. I'll take the JMP-1 thank you. But can't hate on that!!!!
    Agreed on all points. Regret selling my JMP 1 9200 rig wish I still had it!! Studio clip with mine from the "day".

That drawer came with the case/power amp/power supply. It won’t be used long term. (The GCX/GCP were just over $200 together!) The other loops are for switching the tuner and A/B for the power amp, one side to open back C90, one side to closed back V30.

    It’s sounding extremely good, switching to open back American style speakers for the clean and grit and closed back V30 for crunch, heavier rhythm and lead is awesome. Of course the uber clean Rhythm Yellow and saturated Lead 2 sound good, it’s the juicy Rhythm Green and Lead 1 tones that are really impressing me.
    If you're looking for a longer term pedal shelf, these two are popular on Rig Talk / TGP:

    EWI RF1UKM-LA
    Penn Elcom R1290

    Just out of curiosity, what were you planning to use the GCX for? If you're going to have a drawer with pedals, plan on allowing 2-3U for that depending on how tall they are.

I could definitely make that work as I don't use a lot of instant access buttons for the way I like to play.
    I remember those from a few years ago. Yeah, that would be my choice if someone else were paying for it!

    My research led me to avoid Liquid Foot, as support and programming both leave quite a bit to be desired. The RJM is the Cadillac, but for what I’m doing I figure I can get this whole rack for the price of a Mastermind GT. I’ll start with the GCP and go from there when need be. I’ve got an ES-8, so I’m familiar with what can be sent by a controller, but for now this will work until I outgrow it.

    However.... there is a Beta release of software out that allows you to link 2 GCPs, one can be all presets (banks of 10) and the other is all Instant Access, 2 banks of 12 IA. That might be an interesting option, even if it’s approaching an aircraft carrier sized board.
