It reminds me of http://www.swallet.com/ I carried one of those for a few years, and it was great.

Looks like you've got it right. The tuner should be beginning of the chain, otherwise you'd have to turn off all of the effects to tune effectively. Also, having the tuner first allows the effects to...

I think if there's one touring band on a DIY, the ideal spot is to have them play 3rd of 4 bands.

Don't book the touring band last. Everyone will leave after the big local.

You can't adjust the intonation on an acoustic guitar.

I think it is probably because of the nut. If you hold down the string between the 2nd and 3rd fret, how close is the string to the top of the first fret? It shouldn't touch, but you should be barely...

I supposed American-made amps may be more expensive overseas. Have you checked out Laney amps?

Traditionally, guitar strings are not coated. The addition of a thin coating preserves the life of...

For recording, I'd recommend using non-coated strings (not Elixir). You'll probably have to replace them every couple of days, but they'll sound best.

Amp recs in your price range (used):

Bruce Springsteen is good friends with Joe Grushecky, and Joe's son is in The Composure. If you're a Springsteen fan near Pittsburgh, pickup tickets to the Joe Grushecky show.

You really should go with Elixir strings.

If you don't change your strings often, then you absolutely need to get coated strings. Uncoated strings will start to corrode immediately, and need to be...

Any cheap set that has decent bearing edges will sound good when it has good heads and is tuned well. I think that the best bet is to buy a cheap used kit and replace all the heads. You can't cheap...

Oak isn't as strong as hickory across the grain. They don't splinter the way hickory does, but they snap in half easier.
