    I have a Surf green (MIM) 1999 '57 Stratocaster. I love the feel, and the maple 'v' neck, and the tone is good...but the stock pickups make that "noise". I would like a good replacement set (all 3) for this guitar that keep the Strat-Fender tone but have more flexibility toward humbucker-like...

    I was looking at Brian May's website the other day and he commented that after seeing Jeff Beck the night before he thought he might as well give up guitar! It's interesting that someone whom I rate very highly as a guitarist and musician can still feel the same way as me when they see someone...

    I started watchin a ton of videos on him on youtube, and I get the impression that he is nearly completely blind. I saw nearly because people always say "legally blind", but if he were fully blind, they would just say "blind." So is my assumption right; is he almost but not completely blind...

    I feel lucky to be seeing him in such a quaint venue. This will be my third time seeing him. Once with Whitesnake and Once at G3 a few years ago. I was at the Warner Theater in DC last April to see G3 with Joe, Pertucci, and Paul Gilbert. I missed Vai. I can't wait to see him again.

    Get your mind out of the gutter. GUITAR. How long did it take you before it 'clicked' and you actually impressed yourself that you were realy playing the guitar? It took me about 3 years and then one day - I picked it up and could actually play a solo that wasn't half bad. It's been a...

    Hi to everyone. This Sunday July 1 a friend of mines-Jimi Fiano is having his 50th birthday. He will be playing at O'Haras in Hollywood Florida. Mr Fiano has been featured in Guitar player magazine and was described by Mike Varney as sounding "like a cross between Jeff Beck,Van Halen and...

    There's a thread elsewhere in the forum about Vince Gill's playing abilities and it reminded me of a question I had. What are people talking about when they say a guitar or amp is good for "chicken pickin?" I can only assume it refers to twangy, clean, country soloing (like what Vince is...

    For about the last 15 years I have heard country music fans (I am not one) say that Vince Gill is an incredible guitar player. They claim he is capable of SHREDDING with the best of em', but he just choses not to because it's not his style. Some say he is the best in the world. His wife (Amy...

    Been jamming Brad Paisley lately and was wondering if there were any other fella's out there that get into country pickin'. Vince Gill is amazing as well.
  10. Pickups & wiring
    If you could only have one set of pickups what would they be and why? I'd choose a Breed in the bridge and a Paf Joe in the neck. Versitile enough to play everything, good pick response for instrumental/prog music (which I like), and they cut through and still clean up nice. Bass is tight and...

    Forgive me. This waiting for my JEM7VWH to ship from Rich is killing me so I feel compelled to start a meaningless thread to help pass the time until she arrives. So just for the heck of it, who's your 12 favorite guitarists? Lets say we all love Vai and Satriani so you can't include them. I'm...

    I have about $40 of freely spendable money, and I want something guitar-related, preferably not a pedal unless it's something other than the usual chorus/delay/distortion/flanger/phaser/EQ/ etc. etc. Any suggestions?

    anyone know of any instrumental country/bluegrass/etc albums or artists? i'm really digging all those twangy licks and all, lately. i know that vince gill is quite a player, does he have anything that features a lot of his playing? been listening to steve morse's stuff and he's got some great...

    I found some phots of Steves guitar on a Swedish forum, so I thought I post them here. So they are not taken by me. They are taken by a Swedish guy who had an EVO pass for the show in Malmö, Sweden. I hope he don't mind me posting them here. /Magnus

    I've been listening to mainly 80's/early 90's rock/hr/metal. I'd like to know what is good to listen to now? Can be rock/hr/metal/country/instrumental or anything. I don't really like cookie monster vocals, but I really like Children of Bodem. Old stuff that I listen to included priest...
