      I don’t know about the Korg pandora but I can assure you the G3 sounds great thru headphones.
      It’s a great practise tool.

    Keep on rocking!

    I bought my G3 and was looking presets, good tone
    metallica do not have something to zoom G3?

    I really like the cool tones you are able to reproduce with the G3. Im really looking to getting one real soon but I have a question you may be able to answer. Does this unit have any harmonizer effects? Ive seen a video on the G5 and it has that effect on it but I was curious to know if the G3 also had it. Thanks and keep up the awesome work!!

    NICE ! The tone is right on the money, and I think your playing is even a bit tighter than Scholz’s … gives a nice “extra” edge to the tune – great job !

    I always thought Boston layered many guitar parts together to get a wall of sound while recording. How many guitar parts are there in this recording ? just curious; btw, you sound great and i just bought a G3 used from the bay and can’t to get to playing.
