    As the title says, I am looking for a newbergh Steinberger, preferable the "full Bodied" version like Vito Bratta used. Color is unimportant, condition is relative. I would LIKE good condition, but will settle for decent. I am pretty much only looking for a trade right now, if possible. I have...

    Is he playing straight into a Lonestar? This is the tone I hear in my head. Amazing IMO. What can I do with that amp and an RG and a side note how does that compare to a Legacy gain wise?

    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...

    Sorry if this question has been asked already! Mine was a black Satellite Les Paul copy, bought in 1979 from a local tobacconists that also sold a range of cheap guitars. The body was a sort of plywood although you couldnt tell because of the thick black finish, the neck was a bolt on but...

    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...

    Post your ABSOLUTE FAVORITE song to hear in the car that makes you crazy. You know, the song that comes on (or you put on) that instantly makes everyone in the car start head-banging or jumping around like idiots. Mine are.......... AC/DC - Back In Black VH -You Really Got Me Ozzy - Crazy...
  11. Pickups & wiring
    I am having the Fender Custom shop make me a strat. A long time ago I played a Fender custom strat that had a single coil in the neck and Humbucker in the bridge and no middle pickup (I remember Vito Bratta, George Lynch, and a few others had strats like this). It had a 3 position switch and the...

    Who's tone are you most trying to emulate? I'd say I'm going for a cross between Andy Timmons and Brad Gillis. I've already found that the Vai tone doesn't work well with my style of playing. Petrucci's tone is just too elusive. Besides, I'm not sure it would work well for me. But I hear...

    Ok, so I discovered these guys today. Britny Fox. And I like what I hear. I would like to get some other names I might have missed. After all, I haven't heard most of them yet. It would be nice if it's possible to get some CDs of the bands in question. For reference, some other bands I like...

    Forgive me. This waiting for my JEM7VWH to ship from Rich is killing me so I feel compelled to start a meaningless thread to help pass the time until she arrives. So just for the heck of it, who's your 12 favorite guitarists? Lets say we all love Vai and Satriani so you can't include them. I'm...

    Hi, I looked on Google & Ibanez's wiring schematic pages but didn't find schematics for the RG2027? http://www.ibanez.com/wiring/models.asp?t=e I scored a RG2027 7 string a while back and noted the pu's were a little noisy and poorly potted (waxed) I figured when I could I would re-pot the...

    I thought i would bring out a few cd's that i havent heard in some time so I pulled out White Lions Big Game. I think it had been over ten years since I last played that disc. I'll tell you it's been a long time since I have heard Vitto Bratta play and my God he has some awesome tone and melody...
