It probably won't surprise you, Bill, to hear that I'd also endorse the approach suggested by litesnsirens .
I'm only "chiming in" with the thought that maybe you should hold off on spending more for an external modeller until after you've had a chance to spend some time playing with your new L3t's inbuilt "Body" and "Verb" controls.
It strikes me that anyone who's a fan of the magnificent, natural resonances that seem to radiate so effortlessly from the Santa Cruz Guitar Company's instruments may very well find that they don't need much more, even when using others, ...be those others solid-bodied or semi-acoustic.
"Knowing a thing or two" is a true gift.
Great suggestion.....and yes, the Santa Cruz is truly a very special instrument. I play it so much that my wife teases by asking if she or the guitar gets more attention. Fortunately for me, she does. But in all seriousness, I can't say enough about the SCGC OM.
Great suggestion....when playing my Strat, I rarely play with anything but a clean or higher gain tone. I don't have tube screamers or pedals. I will see how the L3t sounds and reacts to my playing before jumping in.
I was referring to my studio interface/converter for my preamps and mixing/mastering gear not an MP3 player.
