  1. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    This has been something that I've been curious about. I'm sure it's probably been discussed. Within the last few years I've really started to notice that other peoples idea of low is actually high by my tastes. Especially since I've started building at work. And by "building" I mean actually...
  2. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    [/URL][/IMG] Got the JVM on Saturday. It's the 4th one I've had; the first two were 50 Watt 205 h heads, the third was a 100 Watt 210h and this is my first 4 channel one. It originally seemed like overkill to me but all the controls are pretty intuitive. I love these amps, I'm surprised there...

    i'm a sucker for reverse headstocks. Unfortunately, there's almost bugger all ibanezes that have them, so when I saw this going cheap (it needed a bit of an overhaul, specifically the electronics) I decided to jump on it, as, well, cheap enough to not care if it turned out to be a turkey :D. Guy...
  4. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    So after a wonderful set up and a little bit of filing the base of my locknut i have got my action height really low with no fretbuzz. Woo Hoo. There is a trade off though, in fact there's two. The low action is causing string rattle when i pick hard. The low action is causing my tremolo to...

    I did my first ever truss rod adjustment and mod at the same time. The neck on my Kramer Forum 1 had too much relief and the truss rod was already as tight as it could get. So, after talking to boots and some dudes on basstalk they recommended that I add a washer to the truss rod nut. So I...

  7. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    I picked up a Jackson , and the bridge sits really high. The action is too high because of it. Can I lower the bridge while its under tension from the strings? I was told I have yo adjust the rod first. That doesnt make sense to me though. Maybe im wrong. Can anyone guide me along lowering my...
  8. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    This isn't a proper pickup demonstration - I mostly just use the neck position, with the bridge for one passage in the middle - but I used my Strat with the ML set for this month's Jemsite solo competition. This is an awesome sounding set of pickups, plain and simple. This is with the gain at...

    Europa Report (2013) - IMDb I watched it this evening and thought it was pretty darn enjoyable. It relies on being a bit more thoughtful than a lot of sci-fi, and less on action and fantasy technology, but it's still really cool for a Friday night movie. :yesway:

    I bet you all thought I bought that RG550 from Biggness. Nope, I got sick ESP instead. Just kidding, I got a RG550 I did a full teardown and cleaned up the tremelo, fretboard, polished the frets, there was still some left over buffing compound in the trem cavity from the factory...
  11. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    I was looking to brass saddles, tone block, and/or nut, what difference will they make, and which one will make the 'best' difference? I'm looking to get a little more chime. I was also curious how I could do a JP style truss rod adjustment, as removing the pickguard/neck to do action is...
  12. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    Hi, I have a JP7 with a roasted maple neck (Pao Ferro fretboard). I got the guitar about 8 months ago, and to my liking the action was a bit too low, and the neck was too straight, so I adjusted the truss rod a bit to get a little more bow in it and that also resulted in a higher action which I...
  13. General Music Discussion
    My new sexy beast doing its thing! Playing through my Kemper Profiler here, and using the Dimarzio Evolution bridge pickup. One of my favorite solos ever, Wait by White Lion! Vito Bratta had SO many cool ideas in his solos... very melodic, lots of cool tapping, and classic 80's shred tone for...
  14. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Hey guys, So I'm pretty stoked I was able to swing this. The 7 was my dream guitar, so I figured I must have another! They are spec'd pretty much identically. It sounds great and plays very comfortably. One thing I noticed more on the 7 and a little on this one is the tonality of the low end can...

    Might be a stupid question, and I dont know that you can, but.. I'v got a nice MMO mouse with 12 buttons on the side that I'm making an action list for in reaper. I want to beable to do everything with the mouse. Play, record, split, glue,.... all that shit. I'v got that no problem. But I'd...

  20. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    Hello, I have a strat copy and while most would view it as junk it is the first guitar I ever bought so it has an immense amount of sentimental value. I rescued it from a storage space and plugged it in and found that the switch seemed questionable and the pick ups were muted if functioning at...
