I tried it at NAMM and it really is that great. They're going to sell a lot of these. The only problem is it doesn't fit in the recessed jack of my Ibanez S sad.gif.

Good to know! I'll definitly try it with my own ibanez once it arrives here.

Very interesting! I don't find totally comfortable the G30 when needing to change guitars live. This seems to be quicker to switch, don't you think so?

Would taking a 1/4" Mono Male to Female Cable (3ft to 6ft, shorter the better), like an extension cord, & just attach it to the guitar strap make it work? unsure.gif

Yes, but that defeats the purpose of the G10, which is just a plug that goes into your jack instead of the conventional kind that has a cable to a transmitter on your strap.

Bummer, I use an S series as my primary guitar. sad.gif I have recently started gigging again and would love to go wireless. The last time I was playing in a band was 20 years ago and back then I used a Shure wireless system for guitar and vocals. It was fun to be able to leave the stage and roam the club and even go outside while performing but there was always the issue of tone suck. I imagine the quality of wireless units is much better these days.

It's possible to use a 1/4" right angle adapter, but the problem with that is the G10 would then be sticking out from the guitar body, which isn't very elegant. If I find a better solution I'll let you know (or if you find something, let me know).

The digital encoding of the signal in the G10 is indeed better quality than the radio signal of wireless systems of the past.

The G10 doesn't allow changing frequencies that it broadcasts on, so for many people in a live situation that will be a problem because of other wireless units. It's more for playing at home without cables and perfect for that

Multiple g10's in a live situation works fine. First turn on your non g10 units, then turn all your g10's in sequence so each one uses a unique frequency.

Cool, I wasn't aware of that. I read about it not having user assignable frequencies, so for example you play in a larger venue where they often give you a list of frequencies that have been allocated to the band and you set your wireless to that and you were unable to do that with the G10. I assumed wrongly that it was a fixed frequency rather than an automatic assigning.

I think your larger point is still correct. It's not a high-end device. Don't expect to see any G10's on stage when Rihanna or Guns N Roses is performing smile.gif. But the G10 was designed with live performance and multiple transmitters in mind, so for small to midsize gigs it should be fine.
