    I got my new American Deluxe QMT a week or so ago. I really dig it and the S1 system is pretty hip. I really like the ebony board. I dig the quilt and the wavy grain. Almost like having a flame and quilt in one guitar. The SCN pups are nice and lowered are very mellow which I dig. The DH-1 is...

    Just wondering if there are any Carvin fans in here? I think they make some of the best quality guitars and especially necks around. To this day my Bolt Plus guitar has the best playing/feeling neck i`ve ever seen. Any love for Carvin?

    i recently moved to Canberra (thats the capital of Australia, for our American cousins) from the UK, and had to leave my Jem7V in storage over there, until my brother gets off his behind and ships it here. I have always been a fan of Nuno, so i bought an N4 relic, what a guitar, feels very...

    In your own personal opinion, what is your favorite Strat or Strat copy for under $1000?

    I have a Gibson SG STD. I bought it because the neck was nice and the fingerboard on this particular one is uber sweet. It is a joy to play. I've never been very fond of the looks of the SG though. After having it about a year, it mostly stays in it's case because I've come to really be...

    I thought this would be a funny thread. I just spent an hour trying to remember everything i had and what i still have. It's bad, i have a horrible memory. It runs in the family. Also, i have a large collection at my young age. However, i thought i'd be worth a few yucks if everyone shared a...

    I'm not really sure I'm such a big fan of my RGT42 anymore. The neck thru construction really just isn't doing it for me tone-wise (stiff/bright). I made a poor choice thinking neck thru = orgasmic tone. And also, the Edge Pro II bridge isn't really my thing, and I swear the locking nut only...

    I plan on buying a Carvin bolt by the end of the summer. I know I want a Mahogony body, and I know I dont want a Rosewood fretboard (Carvin's rosewood looks like crap, and it feels a little slow for me) so that leaves Birdseye Maple (Birdseye, of course!!) or Ebony. I know that either will...

    I decided to mod one of my Carvin Bolts recently and put a DiMarzio Cruiser in the neck for hum-free single-coil sounds. The other two pickups are a RW/RP AP11 in the middle and a C22B in the bridge. A basic H/S/H setup with a coil-split switch. I am really pleased with this combo. The Crusier...

    so I'm heading off to university next year and I'll need to bring a guitar with me. the problem is, I don't want to take my ESP Dave Mustaine DV8-R because it's too big and I don't want to take my Ibanez JS1200 because it's too precious and I would kill myself if it got damaged somehow or...
