    Saw Zetro posting about this interview a while back and now they've posted the free version. It's 2.5 hours long but I thought it was real good. It might be a little slow at first but they get into a good groove and get comfortable talking back & forth. I kinda know Exodus' songs but don't know...

    I've been staring at guitars and specs and trying to sort out my jazzmaster GAS for the last month. I've also been staring at my collection and wondering if it's time to clear some out and dip my toes into the "you should really only do this once or twice" price range. A 2017 PRS McCarty 594...

    Probably not many people here who might have this situation but I'll post up with some of my lessons learned doing this work... Having grown up in the days of cassette 4-track recorders, I tried to leverage my Roland D-20 synth workstation to do the most work of bass,keyboards, and drums. A...

    Okay so I've had my 6505+ for awhile and I've been running the gain with a boost on 4.5 on the lead channel. Now that's always sounded good, but it never got me quite the crunch like the guys from Chimaira had, which is what I want from that amp. I saw a video that Rob did, and he's got his gain...

    Yesterday I took a drive to pick up a used Fender Classic Player 60's strat, limited edition Lacquer model. Seafoam green, matching headstock, vintage style tuners (a first for me), all nitro finish, tweed case. I have been GASing for daphne blue or similar, and this covers "or similar". The...

    Long story but basically was on a Fountainhead kick and decided I needed a fretless guitar. Considered buying something cheap and modding it but didn't see anything I liked much, plus I'm OCD about matching guitar, so I decided it'd be fun to try a Parker style build to match my two main...

    Was asked to produce one of my best friends bands album earlier this year. I'm normally mixing tech metal or tech death, so with this being stoner rock/metal, this was well our of my comfort zone. Its a dark story written by my friend the drummer whose dad took his own life for reasons I won't...

    Yep, I made one of THOSE. I love headless stuff, I'm a function > form guy and I actually started to love the shape the more I looked at it. So this goes out there to the rest of you with questionable taste. This was originally supposed to be a 'quick and dirty' type build. The initial woodwork...

    Hello everyone, Pretty stupid questions. Should I upload a cover to YouTube of a song without knowing how to properly pick/strum? Will I just get roasted out of oblivion for playing like a tard? Even if the cover is mostly accurate note/tonewise? (I am not perfect) :( To elaborate, I pick with...

    First up is a Solar A1.6 Artist LTD. Snagged this as a B-Stock, but I really can't figure out what was wrong with it! Solar Duncans sounded pretty great, but I threw in my favorite combo for recording (Ragnarok in the bridge and Air Norton in the neck) since this will basically just live in the...

    Another part of the trade deal for my SC607, one of the "hated" JCM2000 TSL 60's. Sure, it's not as good as a Plexi, JCM800 or 900, but ch2 with a boost is still pretty decent. I'm hoping to shift it on, but given how little I have into it, if it doesn't sell I may just keep it and mod it to...

    Before I even type anything, just look at this: I've wanted an ESP ever since I got into Metallica. And I've had plenty of LTDs, but ever timey I had the money to get an ESP, something would always come up. And over the past couple years, I got less into playing guitar and more into drinking...

    I'm not real sure how to describe Pete's sound.. definitely some Zappa influence. Dude can play his ass off and deserves more notoriety IMO. Also his tone is badass as well as the Jackson he's rocking in the video. Interesting lyrics too if you're into that sort of thing.

    Well I bought my first us made PRS. It's an S2 custom 24 in moss green. Tried some core models but found the carve uncomfortable. Digging into my arm a bit on the edges. I found the s2 bevel a lot more comfortable, so this is what I grabbed. Stock pickups sounded great but not quite enough...
