    Hello, there is a theory that a part of the initial energy of the strings is absorbed by the moving/vibrating trem springs. I believe that, since it is obvious that much of the "reverb" effect that float double locking trem systems is exhibiting is due do energy initially carried by the...

    Hey there I recently bought a real nice Rg350dx off a mate for £100, bargain, And I bought the Peavey Vypyr 30 as I needed a new amp, so I set up the guitar, put on some Elixirs and played away, and noticed when I was trying to hold a note, it kept cutting off after about 2-3 seconds, the Rg...

    I know that they are D'Addario 9-42, but what is their type? They seems very soft. I have a set of D'Addario EXL120 9-42 on another guitar and they feel more tight comparing to the stock strings. Just changed the stock strings to Ernie Ball 2223 9-42 and finished tightening the springs because...

    Looking at my guitar collection, I have 3 players at the moment, only one of which is stock. I'm also in the process of essentially rebuilding two other guitars with all new electronics and hardware, which when complete will leave me with 5 'modded' guitars and a lonely 1 stock model. Which do...

    Hi, Hey, does anyone else have sustain issues (as in not much sustain) with stock pickups in their Yamaha Pacifica's? I used to use a compressor which resulted in decent sustain but now that I have a VOX Satchurator I don't use one anymore. The sustain is almost cut in half now which isn't...

    hi, i guess this is kind of a two part question. 1) What is the main different between the V7 and V8 pickups? Can you put the V8 in the neck position? Should you? 2) The reason is, i plan on getting a more powerful bridge pickup, and am wondering if i can move the V8 up to the neck if it...
