  1. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    I upgraded my LTD ST-203FR (HSS) with a JB in the bridge which, as always with alder strat-types, sounds badass. I really dig the stock single coils, as they tend to balance really well with the JB despite the obvious output difference. The only problem is though I've ran into the inevitable...

    Hey guys. I have a quick question... I'm a lefty so I don't have too many options to me. My favorite bands are Godsmack, Metallica, and Drowning Pool... you get the idea.

    OK...alder bodied guitar with a 26.25" scale, maple neck and rosewood board. I've already got an X2N in my other alder bodied six, and love it, but was mulling over something different for this second guitar. What's everyone's opinion on this combo? If anyone has any other suggestions, I'm...

    We are making this for Chris. Its an Alder RG (Nearly 1 piece) with 2 humbuckers & the old school JEM style carved heel on the back. Still got some prepping to do & some holes to drill but I thought I would post some progress pictures. This is basically what it looks like right off the CNC.
  9. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    Looking to get some suggestions for production pickups for a Carvin I've got coming in. Looking at Dimarzios (cuz there wouldn't have to be any routing) but I'd so love to get some SDs in there. Also please don't recommend BKPs, etc cuz I dont have the bread for them. Specs on the carvin...
