    Hi all, I've been away from this site to avoid GAS for sometime now, but I find myself climbing the wall with GAS again and this is where it leads me. :) Lately I've been checking out the Caparison guitars and I'm afraid I'm hellbent on getting one. I'm looking into the Dellinger and TAT...

    Is it just the royalty to Vai that makes it so expensive?

    Hey guys, I have a ESP LTD EC-1000. Thinking of changing the EMGs for PAF Pros, anyone know how this will sound? I used to have PAF Pros in an alder bodied super strat I have and loved the sound then, but obviously a les paul will sound a little different! Cheers Joe

    I played a J-Custom RG8470 the other day and the tone was great. The DiMarzio Tone Zone sounded great to my ears. Not muddy, not wooly-just right, if you know how to EQ that is. But, because of the love/hate reviews of the pickups I'm worried that if I get one and put it into my RG560 (basswood...

  9. Pickups & wiring
    Alright guys. I recently got a RG560 and I wanna put new pickups in it. Now I usually play heavy stuff, but lately I am trying to diversify. The only famous player's guitar tone I absolutely love is Joe Satriani's. So naturally I was looking at the Mo'Joe for the bridge, but is it able to get...

    Anyone out there own one? I'm intrigued by all of the switching and was wondering how good the single coil sounds really are compared to a trusty strat? Also, how's the trem in terms of feel? Does the trem float or is it fixed against the body? How's the range? I've seen some really...

    Hi guys, great website you got here, I've been reading for a long time but never really decided to post anything until now. For the last few months I've been having the dilemma between a JS1200 and a JEM7WH. I'm mainly a shredder, but I love to rock the blues sometimes. I'm a big fan of the...
  12. Pickups & wiring
    Hey guys I have a Warmoth Alder hardtail strat with a Carvin Maple neck with ebony fretboard. I'm going to be using HSS or HH pickup configuration. Can you guys give me some suggestions on bridge pickups? Originally I was thinking Duncan JB but I don't want something so brittle sounding. I...
  13. Pickups & wiring
    Hi folks, This is my first post here, and the 59 model is my first Duncan pickup (used DiMarzios in the past) I'm really glad that i discovered the 59 model. Since i went to 10-46 (from 009s) i never was happy about my tone with the DiMarzio Breeds (too buzzy and hard, but dull, without...

    Hi Folks, I've been looking a little more closely at Jackson lately, and am drooling over some of their models like the DKMGT (EMG's and reverse headstock), and I was wondering about their quality/product herachy verses Ibanez's. I'm beginning to be unhappy with Ibanez's product-line...
  16. Pickups & wiring
    I might be buying a JEM77BRMR, but I'm not sure whether or not I should keep the Breeds in there or switch them to Evolutions. In a JEM, I'd probably be looking for the humbuckers to do distorted and overdriven tones really well, but I want the neck and middle to have amazing clean tones. When...

    Why is basswood considered a low end wood for electric guitars??? I mean, paul gilberts guitar, the rg bolt ons, vai's older jem... These are some of the most famous guitars... Why is it considered low end?? The wood issue really confuses me... some say and swear that the wood has nothing...

    This pup really turned out to be a hidden jem for me reminds me a lot of the bridge pup in the EBMM EVH guitars dimarzio claims the tone zone is the closest but this norton is way closer it is like a fred in that it feels lower output but has more of the punch and balls of the tone zone with...

    I'd been looking for a fixed bridge, alder bodied, fat strat for a while, but never found one that felt right, which is strange given that I like strats! I've also never been quite happy with the vol control on a strat being so close to the bridge. After much research I ordered this beast...
