That thing is WEIRD. I had one to mess around with once and when you clicked it over to a different tuning, the strings were still in standard tuning, so it would sound like a given tuning but you'd feel it vibrate in standard.
Heebie Jeebies, I tell ya

Yes, I mean that as a compliment.

I have one guitar with Duncans in both neck and bridge, both coil tapped= tons of versatility. That guitar can cover anything we throw at it, and it saves packing more gear!
I NEVER thought myself a tone snob/nut, but if my 'battered by the 3rd song' ears can hear the difference, it's got to be pretty noticeable I'd think

I take my acoustic and electric. I mix it up depending on the song and my mood. I've done the whole night with one or the other, so I know that if anything happens to one, I can do the rest of the show with the other.

It's more important to be tight and "on", but I have no delusions of stadium grandeur. It's drunks in a pub, and they don't care about much other than a tight groove and vocals, and that level of care is inversely proportional to the amount of booze they consume as the night goes on.

These days only 2. Strings don't break like they use to and people steal guitars now. I grew up playing in bar bands in the late 70's and early 80's things have changed a bit since then, but one fellow just had his favourite guitar stolen from a casino gig not long ago. I use to take mine with me back up to the room if we had a longer break ..you might want to as well..plus it looks cool to walk out with your guitar..helped with women anyway.
