Lapstick Portable guitar

Image taken from

A lot, if not most of times, I wish I had my instrument with me. I am sure the vast majority of guitar players, and musicians feel the same. Knowing, my laziness, when it comes to carrying extra equipment, I know I have to do something. Today I decided to look at my options, and found the lapstick. The lapstick seems to like it could be the answer, to all the guitar players who like me, wish they could play and practice everywhere they go. I know there are many guitarists like me, when it comes to the drive to play as much as possible. With that said, although I still don’t know enough about the lapstick, beyond the specs displayed on their website, it seems like it could be an interesting investment. It is an extremely small, instrument, with a built in portable amp to boot. I’m sure many of you, like I, will be glad to know of its existence.

    Ok, i recently bought a guitar, but i am having some problems with my amp. The amp i have is a fender mustang i with dials for gain, bass, mid, treble, volume, and reverb. I was wondering what to set the dials for the best rock or hard rock sound.

    I’ve had mine about a year. I take it everywhere I go, and love it.

    For a rock sound you want a lot of mids, a good amount of bass but not so much it sounds muddy. On the treble it could be just about anywhere depending on the sound you are going for. There are many variables. What I suggest with most amps is to start with all the equalizer knobs at 12 O’clock. The channel volume all the way up, and the master volume to be the one to control the volume. Here on you can start playing with the eq
