    I'm torn between a set of YJM/YJM/HS-3 (Bridge) or Cruiser/Cruiser/Chopper (Bridge). The YJM/HS-3 set is basically what you get on the Yngwie Signature Strat. As much as I love Yngwie, I don't want to sound just like him. However, if out of this set I can get his earlier Ritchie Blackmore tone...

    I was doing a project in a local studio here in CT and the engineer turned me onto a cool opportunity: in the guitar booth he hung a bunch of 12" celestion speakers on the wall so I asked what the deal was... He knows people who were in the Deep Purple organization a long time who have a bunch...

    Yeah kind of a weird question, and I wasn't even really sure where to post this. I discovered that running my late 80's MIJ strat with upgraded fender noiseless single coils into my modded DS1, INTO my Marshall Guv'nor pedal, into my VOX Valvetronix on a *slightly* distorted amp...

    Imagine if you will, all the time over all the years spent practicing. Now add to that, all the thousands of dollars you spent,and will spend. For what? To impress who? You look at the thread about the 8 String crazy guy. How many hours did he devote to being phenomenal at THAT? Clearly...

    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...

    A.K.A. is Steve Vai slipping up his own bum-crack? I've loved Steve Vai for years, since I was about 10 actually, but recently he just seems to be far more egotistical and he's coming out with some crazy ideas (or at least, endorsing them.) Maybe it's just me, but the guy is just beginning to...

    I had a really great time demoing a lot of amps today. I happened to be browsing the web for info about Splawns a few weeks ago, and turns out that one of Splawn's biggest dealers lives only about 45 minutes away at his in-house run store, Rebel Amps. Splawns aren't the only thing he deals...

    Ok Ok, I know this is going to be blasphemous but i've always been attrated to the Fender Malmsteen Signature...(not the guy, only his guitar) I simply love that YJM neck PU... I just hope it's not noisy on a high gain amp. Oh and the scalloped maple fretboard !!! ( never played with scallop but...

    I'm going to start saving up for a hi-gain all tube half stack and I wanted to know if any of you use these certain ones. A Diezel VH4, ENGL Savage 120, and a Mesa Triple Recto. I'm currently in a bind and don't know which one is best for me. Money isn't a problem, I just want to make sure I get...

    For me it's Jason Becker. I really would like to know what amp, distortion pedal he uses on his demo tapes to Roth. Check out the songs from here. Guitar sounds like a buzzsaw with endless sustain. http://64.162.150.71/NeverHeardHotForTeacher.mp3 http://64.162.150.71/NeverHeardYankeeRose.mp3...

    I'm always interested in learning about new gear and the best way to learn is to find out what other people like. So without further ado, what would you have in your end all be all rig? For me it would be a 10-space shock mount rack containing (from top to bottom): Furman PL-Plus power...
