    One Desire sounds like a modern take on Journey: Airbourne, a killer throwback to AC/DC: Roxanne, so Kings X Doug Pinnick guests on their songs: KXM, well, it's Pinnick and George Lynch, so not really a throwback, it's the OG right here: Art Nation, the very definition of Modern/Retro...

    Seen this on the local offer up for a few weeks now dude wants $200 USD for the body and neck. Not the biggest fan of the color. Thinking about making an offer for a project guitar. Can anybody tell me if this looks like a legit ESP?

    I've had a Paiste Alpha Metal Ride for many years and while I have been (and still am) happy with it... A band came by to record a few songs at my studio and they had a Zildjian Mega Bell ride with them, and I was like :eek: so I had to get one for myself. Found one from the 80s on Ebay for a...

    Most of you know I work for USACG but the big boss also has a company called Landon Guitars. It's a relatively new company that caters more towards the Suhr, Anderson type stuff with it's roots from the glory days of brands like Charvel and Kramer, etc. Landon Guitars | When you are ready for...

    Hi guys. I've got an old 80's Platinum Warlock in the basement, which needs a new bridge. I don't think, that It's an original Floyd Rose. Anyone who knows, where I could get a replacement one?
  10. Music: Recording Studio
    While I'm still having some minor issues with Naughty Seal Perfect Drums, I'm not giving up my idea! Most sample packs today seems aimed towards djent/core crowd, and feature super polished modern drums which aint really my thing. But Naughty Seal lets anybody who buys it create their own...

    So, in January I went hunting for one of these, and everywhere had them sold out. I gave up hope, but eventually (somehow) found one on Thomann. It arrived yesterday, and I love the colour and everything about it. I've wanted one of these since forever, and the originals are just too much money...

    Check em out! Super heavy metal in the vein of Icon, Dokken and all that. We're going to finish off vocals soon, and then start recording drums. I helped them out with solo guitars for this album. They will probably have their album out in 2017!

    My buddy (who really doesnt play guitar) has had an 80s Charvel that his uncle passed down to him years ago. He started playing here and there and by looking at it, there were obvious issues. The strings probably have not been changed in 10 years. The trem was nowhere close to being level and...

    https://www.facebook.com/TMNT/videos/342578922532544/?pnref=story Facebook link, youtube one isn't quite as good. Yeah it's probably going to be a terrible Michael Bay flick like the last one, but that trailer is awesome. Krang, Bebop, Rocksteady, aliens from Dimension X (might even be the...

    Im basically known as the djent kid here when I really dont listen to that much djent, so I want to listen to some REAL music that was made before I was born. I already have iced earth on tap. What else?

    It was the era where everyone wants to play FAST (thanks Paul Gilbert! :spock:) :hbang: But If had to pick one who had that melodic sense and the technical prowess to go with it, that would be hands down ...Vinnie Moore...''Meltdown'' still is, my fav guitar instrumental album
