    Some english dudes sounding a lot like Wishone Ash mixed with a hint of Solstice (Englander). usually not into the christian appeal, but damn, if that aren't some tasty licks. grab the album here: https://wytchhazel.bandcamp.com/

    So, I was looking around at Strats for a while and decided to pull the trigger on this one. I wanted an Elite, but the thumb wheel neck adjustment and pickups were the only real differences. It's got a 9.5" to 14" compound radius, S1 switch, and very mediocre N3 noiseless pickups. It feels great...

    An Australian Fender dealer has revealed that the guitar maker is planning to phase out the use of ash for most of its instruments. We reached out to Fender, who have confirmed the plans. The reasons cited for the move are environmental, with climate change and a destructive pest threatening ash...

    I'd like to change the bridge humbucker in my ash (and maple neck with rosewood fretboard) Robin Medley, which is BRIGHT as hell. After doing a bit of research (I'm no pickup guru), first thing to do would be to go alnico instead of ceramic, me thinks. I've always been a Duncan guy, but I am...

    Having recently come back from Philippines, I spent some time with my cousins, also musicians, but are unable to afford instruments themselves and always resort to borrowing. So bought a guitar and a bass for them to call their own. One in particular is this RG: I'm also planning to upgrade...

    Ok, first a shitty cell phone pic: I managed to hold out almost 24 hours after this was announced at NAMM. It's a 1527 with an ash body and a maple fretboard, and a pair of Dimarzio PAFs. It's pretty much all I ever wanted in an Ibanez, and they even did it in my favorite finish they're...

    Went into a a local Scam Cash just for some strings but saw they had quite a few guitars I had wanted to try out. Started with the Fenders and worked my way around the room. Played a few Classic Series Strat's that were actually pretty damn nice for an $800 price tag, then grabbed an Yngwie...

    I'm attempting to smoke right now And I suck. :lol: This smoker's pretty bad. We got it as a wedding present. There's no vent at the bottom, so I'm having trouble getting it above 150. Next time around, I'll drill holes in the ash bowl and try to raise the charcoal grate up a couple inches to...

    Snagged this guy in a trade. Swamp ash body, RG1570 neck. Tone Zone (b), S1 (m), & Air Norton (n) for the pickups. Just got it Monday and have only been able to plug it in for a few minutes, but I'm pretty stoked on it! :metal::yesway:

    NBD for my buddy a couple weeks ago and I'm pretty jealous of this thing. Looks great and sounds amazing. Bass envy is a bitch. My BTB676 next to his SR605 Clip of it in a mix: https://soundcloud.com/jm2484/sr605-test :metal:

    Paul Reed Smith SE Nick Catanese Signature Electric Guitar | SamAsh These are pretty awesome guitars. Body thickness of the SE 245, 25" scale, slimmer neck, no inlays, awesome cosmetics, and intonatable stoptail bridge. Tough to beat them at that price.

    They've been on "closeout" during the last month or so when I've gone there. All the Gibsons are out of the main guitar area and are in their own little display in the front of the store. I asked an employee if they were no longer going to be carrying Gibson and he said he didn't know. Their...
