    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...

    Up for sale is my Lovepedal Mini Buffer (made in 2004). It works great and has barely been used by me (I have another one so I don't really need this one). This is an awesome little box (about the size of a credit card and an inch tall), so it doesn't take up hardly any pedal board real estate...

    I'm currently using a Legacy 100W halfstack with a Tubescreamer in front as a boost. I'm also running my G Major through the effects loop. However, the G Major seems to be generating horrendous feedback! The TS and Legacy are fine together, but when I plug in the G Major I get nearly...

    I had a talk with someone about what's out in space. he gave all kinds of info. what scared me was how he said in order to travel through space you must control time. he talked calmly and didn't stumble. freaky dude!

    I gather all JEM Vine and Pyramid Fretboards are quarter-sawn. Got some totally Flatsawn ones from a seller (MonsterGuitarShop) and the fibres at top frets looks too flimsy, making durability questionable. Does anyone know if this Flatsawn surface Will affect durability? The strings...

    This really could be a thread about a few topics, but mainly I'd like to know how to get my high frets fixed on my new RG350 DX. I'm not all that upset about it, just need to know what common practice is for fixing high frets. The 8th fret is high enough that it completely chokes playing the...

    So this is kind of a noob question. What is the difference between a speaker cable and an instrument cable. Heres the issue: Me and my buddy got together for a jam the other day. A few days later he realizes his speaker cable is missing. I look through my cables and alas there is an extra one...

    I have a somewhat dinged up JS100 in red laying around that I took all of the parts out of. It only has the body, neck, pickup rings, input jack, and tuners left on it. I'm curious to see if anyone wants it for a project or even a beater guitar. I can sell the whole guitar for $75 or the body...

    So a friend of mine decided that he wanted me to install a set of EMG's (81/85) in his brand spankin' new SG standard. The install went very well and the thing sounded amazing. A week later, he saw a guy playing an SG just like his, just with the stock pickups... So he asked me to put the old...
  12. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    Well, in my really slow quest for becoming a guitar tech, I feel it's time to start fretting. I know I should start on simple stuff, and of course, on cheap/disposable necks. The thing is, I've looked around and basically I've found 2 radically different approaches: 1.- Stew Mac: "buy this...

    I'm looking at a BSB on the Evil Auction site, item # 160225751910. The guy is in Japan, he's the same guy who's been trying to sell the PGM700 for the past 6 months. My real concern is that he mentions that it's missing the truss rod cover and the back plate... looking closer, they are...
  14. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    I am about to begin my first fret job. I pulled the old ones out and they were either not glued, or the glue didn't hold at all because the removal was quite easy. So my question is... to glue or not to glue? What is the difference (other than gluing being a pain in the butt)? I will be...

    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

    Hello all, it's been quite a while since I've posted - I've been so busy with gradumatating from college. Anyway, I'm looking to buy my first laptop and I'm going with a Macbook. I've done a little bit of recording but I would like to be able to get into it a bit more, now that I'll be on my...

    Hi, I thought it would be interesting to have a thread that's entirely dedicated to overdrive and distortion, in which you can share info about which pedals you prefer and why, how you've managed to get the sound you searched through the use of your pedals, etc. etc. It might be a cool thread...

    Everyone knocks the Stewart McDonald Bill Lawrence pickups. I commonly hear that ony Bill and Becky make the "Real" Bill Lawrence pups and they are so much better. First: both Bill and Stew were part of the company that made "Bill Lawrence Pickups", then after the company folded both split and...
