  1. Pickups & wiring
    I'm playing more metal now and am doing more palm-muted low E power chords. I'm now playing RG350's with EVH Frankenstein pickups. When I do the muted E's my "chunk chunk chunk" sounds aren't distinct like they are on my Jackson with stock Seymour pickups. I use exactly the same palm-mute...

    I'm in desperate need of guidance. On stage i'm haunted by these screaming feedbacks every time i kick open just a little distortion. It's not string-feedback, but higher in pitch, and it develops much faster. If i play it's gone, but as soon as i stop playing, it's there again. Here's my...

    Hey guys :) I recorded these back in May with the mic from a Speedlink Medusa 5.1 headset, look up the specs if you like but it's certainly not the most high fidelity mic out there. I don't remember mic placement too well. This is just a smattering of high-gain thrash metal riffs, guess the...

    I am in the market for a high gain head. I am looking for something excessively smooth, like a tubescreamer but obviously with lots of gain and without the mid-range hump. I can spend about $1000-$1200. Unfortunately, where I live, all they sell is the typical Fender combos, Marshalls, and a...

    Hi all. I have a Peavey Valveking Head, it's great but it lacks gain in a big way. I want to replace the tubes so that this gain is increased by a massive amount if possible, what would you recommend? Or could it be a problem with the tubes that is giving me this lack of gain? There's no power...
  7. Pickups & wiring
    I have an S2170 as you probably guess from the title, and I also have enough money lying around to get it not only fixed (ZR trem holder...noooo) but to upgrade the pickups in the process. I definitely want to upgrade the two humbuckers, the single coil isn't essential because I don't use it...

    Well, after much convincing of the wife to let me order a Tourmaster, I come to find out that MF (Mother F*ckers?) wont ship amps to my neck of the woods. So we went to the music store today and I came away with an Express 5:50. I know some people say they aren’t as good as the F-50, but having...

    As hard as it is for me to do, I need to sell this unbelievable guitar. It is a 1998 Jackson KV1, which is no longer produced. This guitar is in great condition and has only two small dings which are pictured bellow. It is all original including its Hard tail Kahler(which is great to palm...

    What are the main differences in these guitars besides the top shape. I would be replacing the pickups in either one. Is there any differences in the necks? Some of the RG's I've played had too thin of necks...

    I'm a complete n00B in the ways of pickups and guitar modifications, so I need you guys here at jemsite to help me a little. Recently I decided to buy the parts I need from warmoth.com, so I could assemble the fabled "me" guitar. Now, I've made a parts list of (most) everything I will need...

  15. Pickups & wiring
    When you say a Pickup is compressed, what does that mean. I commonly hear the Evo and X2N are compressed and some others. Does this mean more open, less open? More gain, tighter, brighter, sustain longer, cover up bad playing?

    I saw you had a Lawrence L-500. Have you played the XL500? Can you get similuar Nuno tones with it. I've heard clips that sound darn close to Nuno using the XL500. I ask because a friend has one he wants to get rid of cheap. I like the tone of Lawrence's and how they can go from Dimes tone to...

    A while ago I decided it was time to move up from my trusted old Johnson Millenium amp and to the real thing (tube amp). The idea was to have a great 3 or 4 channel amp as the basis, and then put on effects later on when I can afford it (a Digitech GSP1011 was in my mind). Could I have chosen...
  19. Pickups & wiring
    Alright guys. I recently got a RG560 and I wanna put new pickups in it. Now I usually play heavy stuff, but lately I am trying to diversify. The only famous player's guitar tone I absolutely love is Joe Satriani's. So naturally I was looking at the Mo'Joe for the bridge, but is it able to get...
