    Finally it is nearly finished!!!!! http://moreguitarpics.fotopic.net/c1462960.html I started this project about 3 years ago. After much work, **** ups, hold ups, the birth of a child and 2 career changes I am nearing the end. I have mentioned this project in a few threads, particularly in...

    Can you nail down the best tone you ever heard to the specific song, I can: John Petrucci on A Change of Seasons playing Achillies Last Stand during the solo. It's the best to me. What was he using at this time? Pickups, guitar amps? Anyone know? What kind of pickup could I use to achieve this...

    What do you guys think of Laney amps? How's their tone compare with say Mesa or Fender or Marshall etc.? I was thinking of upgrading my Marshall AVT20 to a Laney LC15 or VC15, not really sure what the difference is. They've got a Laney LC15 for $400 at my shop, which I think is a STEAL

    He does the get out of my yard arpeggio's in it looks like standard tuning with complete cleanness which is insane, I've watched a few of his vids but he is pretty damn good. http://www.youtube.com/pipebecker

    It kills me to see that none of the very well known guitar virtuosos started their carreers not too long ago. Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Paul Gilbert, Greg Howe, Tony Macalpine, Richie Kotzen, Allan Holdsworth, Jimmy Page, Reb Beach.... etc all started 2 or 3 decades ago. IMO the newer guitarists...

    I am building a rack just to try something different mainly for some instrumental music. I found a cheap ADA MP1 incredibly clean so bought it today for that 80s rock ala Nuno Bettencourt etc... What poweramp would you recommend me for the rack? 20watt would be more than enough power and I...

    Lately I've been paying alot of attention to tone, and mostly in Rock guitar. I would really like to see some players you guys enjoy tone wise. I'm gonna list some, and I gotta say, the guy I HATE the most is Brad Gillis, worst guitar player ever, but anyway, here is my List of best tone in...

    I know I'm going to regret selling this, but ever since I've gotten my Carvin Legacy I rarely put the Mod4 MkII to use. Plus, I've got some things to take care of and I don't like having unused gear sitting around. Might as well let someone put this awesome preamp to use. New front input jack...

    Though, I know Paul is literally light years ahead of Nuno as a player, I feel Nuno's short solo was far better than Paul's whole performance. PG's guitar sounds like sh* and his problem is that he is TOO modest. Whenever he plays with someone else you can tell he tones his playing way down as...
