    i am a jazz performance major in college and im looking to get a new guitar. i have a big jazz box but i dont care for its lack of versatility and feel that i can do the same stuff on a solidbody. i have been shopping around for some time and have narrowed my choices down to three models that...

    I just had a thought right now and was wondering if anyone else has tried this. Ive been using an MXR or Boss EQ pedal in my FX Loop to boost for solos for years now. Ive always had a few problems though. For one I dont always want some solo's to come out as loud as others. I also dont like the...

    Say I wanna hook use 2 practice amps that obviously don't have a speaker out or anything. Is there any way to do this besides getting one of those Morley A/B switches, or a similar device. And are those A/B switches that hard to make yourself?

    Hi, i'm not sure if this is the right place to post such a message but here goes. I am trying to get a "bouncy" almost hollow sound with really mean treble, almost exactly like the sound in Steve Vais' Tender Surrender live in detriot 1997, it can be found on vai.com whenever they reopen the...

    Hey ppl, I'm looking for a volume pedal that won't color my tone AT ALL. I don't mind it introducing a little noise as long as my tone is still there. If you know my rig, then you know I'm completely hardnosed in my stance. Money is not a concern. As a metric for what I'm after, when the...

    When you see your favorite guitarist on stage switching guitars, how do they do it without making all kinds of weird noises from touching the cable? Is there some sort of pedal they use to cut the signal while switching, or do they turn the amp off for a few seconds? Or is it something else?

    Hi guys!! I thought we'd do a less controversial topic this time around... I'd like to hear about your favorite rig setup ie: What guitar you use, amps, effects..in what order do you like up your effects/pedals... I think we can learn from each other on this one!!!

    I bought a Morley Bad Horsie wah pedal a couple of weeks ago, and it nearly changed my life. :lol: It's got a really sweet wah sound, and I loved how I didn't have to damn near push the thing through the stage to get it on and off. It's been a dream come true until last night at a gig. I did a...

    I know Steves current rack consist of a g-force and a sde-3000. I was wondering if anyone knows if he uses the efx loop or if he uses some kind of mixer.

    I just picked up a used GCX Switcher for my rack. It didn't have a manual with it, but that shouldn't be a problem. I'm honestly not sure how to hook it all up, but it shouldn't be too hard to figure out. Looks like there are (8) loops with (4) inputs each: input, output, send & return...
