  1. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    Hi Folks, I have a bit of a weird problem that started a few days ago. Whenever I go to play an E note at the 12th fret on the high E-string, it sounds dead (along with fret buzz). All of the other notes in the surrounding area sound perfect. The strings are about 6 months old, and I haven't...
  2. Players, Bands, Sounds, Tours, Lessons & Theory!
    Hi Folks, I arrived at the concert (March 16th) at 8:25pm, about 5 minutes before Maiden went on, so I missed the opener. I'll put this in point form since I'm feeling lazy now: Attendance - well, I don't know the sheer numbers, but the general floor admission was about %50 full, and the...
  3. Gear, Equipment, Recording & Off Topic
    There are no right or wrong answers here! What do you think defines your sound? Given that maybe most professional guitarists are heard through their recorded output, is your recorded sound your real sound and your live sound just an approximation, or the other way round? In my case, anything I...

    Hi Folks, I finally got my new Jackson that I ordered two weeks ago. I was so impressed with my DK2T that I bought 2 months ago, I decided to add another Jackson to my collection. Their made in Japan DK-series is an excellent bang-for-the-buck, and they are alderwood to boot. Too bad they don't...
  6. Pickups & wiring
    Okay, thinking of wiring a super distortion in my bridge slot (strat, swamp ash body) with a coil split option for more single coil-ish tone. The thing is, I'm still not 100% convinced. How would you guys describe the Super Distortion, and what do you think of it?
  7. 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...
  8. Pickups & wiring
    Hi Folks, I've had my Lado Earth for about 6 months now...I love the guitar...hate the pickups. They are Duncan JB's that were factory installed before I bought the guitar, and they lack the power and tonal qualities that I am looking for. Anyways, I posted here a few months ago explaining...

    This is my new LADO Rocker (Custom) I just picked up last week !! The top of the guitar is Quilted Sapele with a AAAA Maple core and a Lacewood back. The neck is made from Maple,Bubinga & Purpleheart. http://i240.photobucket.com/albums/ff122/gpptsi/n632745098_1323843_7017.jpg...
  10. Gear, Equipment, Recording & Off Topic
    Hi Folks, I just bought my first tube amp, and I am overjoyed by it. Originally I was looking at a Peavey Royal 8 (since I live in 500 square-foot apartment), but it sounded dreadfull. Then when the JSX Mini Colossal finally showed-up at my local music shop, I tried it out. Pretty cool, until I...

    I tried posting a reply to the "Lado Earth" guy, Big Red, but the system didn't give me authorization (who knows?). In any case, the Lado Earth is a neckthru Curly Maple guitar with a fast neck and two humbucking pickups. I have two of them in my collection and yes, I can answer your question...

    Hi Folks, I just took delivery of my first Jackson today… a DK2T. Here are a few pics: The above is my "Blue-Man Group". Yes, they are blue (even though they look black). LOL After much consideration, I decided not to go with a DKMGT for the time being as per my original thread...
  13. All Other Guitars (including Prestige)
    This is awsome, I am completely in love with this guitar!!! This is a very metal looking axe, this has got to be one of the better looking guitars Ibanez has done in a while. When I get my finances get bacl to normal I am definately buying one of these, will change the pickups though of course...
  14. Pickups & wiring
    I have an alder Jackson that sounds pretty good but had EMG's and I really don't like EMG's... I'm looking for something that clips a bit of the brighter tendencies of the alder. I'm thinking a Breed. Any ideas? FYI I'm playing through a JSX.
  15. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    Yeah, that's right. I had a tech restring it, 2 saddles broke when he did it(the d and g). Since then I tried to restring it, then the high b saddle broke(it takes about 2 and 1/2 weeks to get these saddles in, too.) Finally got that one fixed, last night I was using my fine tuner and the low...
  16. Pickups & wiring
    Hi Folks, I have an odd question; how low can that middle single pick-up be lowered in a RG Prestige? How deep is that recess? Can the top of the pickup be made flush with guitar's surface? The reason why I'm asking is that I tried a new 1570 recently, but I kept on striking the middle pickup...

    Hi Folks, This one is for the Maiden fans around here; I was talking to Joe Lado (real last name is Kovacic, and is the founder of Lado Guitars) in the middle of the week while placing my order (more on that further down in my post). I told him how much I liked Adrian Smith's tone when he used...
  18. Polls
    Okay... recent threads have really made me wonder. Do you buy a Sig series guitars to play?? OR, do you buy it to sit in a glass case and have drool parties?? (look what I have...I'm soo cool.....drool baby:) ) I personally play MINE:)
  19. All Other Guitars (including Prestige)
    Well, it's a pretty simple question... What's the best-sounding guitar you've ever played? Mine is possibly the RG3120. I played this certain guitar at { UGH } Guitar Center a while back, and i just couldn't put it down. The clean sounds were crystal clear, and...
