    There was a thread on here a little while back about Epiphone Lp's. The general feeling is that if you can afford a Gibson then that's probably best as you'll have to try out a good few Epi's before you get a keeper and even then you'll need to do a few mods to it. My feeling is that I've also...

    Right folks! The neck and headstock in great shape. Don't really care for the body paint, neither do I need the pickups. Goal : refinishing, new bridge, new pickups and electronics. By the way, are the neck and body the same on a 7421 than on the 7621? If so, I would consider that as well...

    Here's the deal. I've got three EMG active humbuckers (81, 85, 60), but only two quick-connect cables. They're all the new style requiring the quick-connect cable, so I'd sell one without the quick-connect for $45, while the other two would go for $50 each. You can find the quick-connect cables...

    Just installed a EMG 81 and 85 into my axe. The EMG 85 sounds fine, but when switching to the 81 there is A LOT of noise. Sound is coming through the pickup, but there more noise than actual sound. The funny thing is, if I push down one of the string so it touches the pickup, the noise...

    taken from dimarzio.com bridge model dp# 220 Active humbuckers have a distinctive sound - powerful, clean, open-sounding, with excellent harmonic overtones and very tight lows. The down side for many players is that they also sound cold, have limited dynamics and run out of headroom when...
