  1. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Got this when I inherited the bass from Moose, but never got a chance to hook it up as we were preparing to move. Well, I'm finally unpacking all my gear and such and figured I'd fire this puppy up for the first time in nearly 30 years. He got this in 1993 when we built out Sound Wizard Studios...

    Hey guys I need a bridge pickup for my Charvel DK24 bc I hate the Full Shred in there. Anybody have anything? 6 string. F space preferred, but not totally required. Something like a BKP, Aldrich, some Duncan's or Dimarzio, etc. Let me know if any of you filthy animals have something.

  4. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Now that my Axe-2 has vacated my desk and is heading to Leon's, I have some space to fill. I have a 4U studio desk, 2x2 side by side. I don't need any more preamps or power amps (already have the Axe-3, Kemper, Mesa 20/20, a 5150 and a 6505 combo). One side of the desk is my interface and...
  5. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    My 1st guitar back in 1989 and the only headless I have owned. My parents asked me what I wanted for Christmas. I picked out that beauty from the JCPenney catalog (when I wasn't wanking to the bra section)

    Wanna try going full-blown single coil (as opposed to stacked humbucker) as I really love the contrast, and more or less always split my neck pickup whenever I'm on it anyway :shrug: JB/Aldrich/Distortion (whichever I'm in the mood for at the time, I seem to be cycling these at the moment :lol...
  7. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    I was watching Rick's video on Rosanna, and I happened to come across this lesson on Premier guitar. Cool little lesson, and its satisfying as heck to hit that triplet run. https://www.premierguitar.com/articles/27473-digging-deeper-steve-lukathers-fantastic-chromatics

    Say what you want about Line 6's Helix modeling, I'm still unsure of it myself. But this sure is a cute little fucker, and the price ($599) is certainly right.
  9. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    I guess the formal name for this would be a 'Line 6 Variax James Tyler JTV-69'? So, a couple people might remember this deceptively titled thread: http://www.metalguitarist.org/forum/guitar-instrument-discussion/90890-ngd-28-guitars-pickups.html Anyway, I still contend that the Variax system...

  11. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    While changing Neck pickups (Single Coils and Single Sized Humbuckers) recently and trying to deal with Volume Drops, got me thinking why do we dont yet have something like "smart" pickup Selectors and Volume Pots... I mean... lets imagine that when I go from one position to the other I want a...

    This video was recommended to me by youtube This video is on the creation of a drum sound that caught on in the 80s Looking at their other videos it looks very interesting. Looks like they analyze music in depth.

  14. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    This kept popping up in my YT related/suggested videos. I don't really care about getting the VH sound, but still ended up watching most of it anyway. Good stuff.

    https://www.engadget.com/2017/05/17/mixhalo-incubus-pharrell/ So basically a PA isn't necessary anymore, if everyone's onboard. Practically speaking, there will still be a PA for people not wanting to use headphones, but this makes for a very cool option for concert goers. Perhaps it'll reduce...
  16. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    All three of my guitars currently have actives, and have been that way for the last 3-4 years so I'd like to try something different with my fusion. I'm not 100% sure what I'm looking for other than I want the pickups to be passive. My playing is fairly heavily influenced by melo-death and...

    They came towards the tail end of the prog scene, and there's a lot of, varied set of influences in here (Yes, Gentle Giant, Queen, Steely Dan, ELP, Beach Boys), but they've got some cool ideas of their own, too.

    My grandmother painted this a long ass time ago. I'm not sure when, but I'm pretty sure it was the 50's or 60's. It was in my father's old bedroom of their house from the time I was born until my grandmother passed away a little over a year ago. Before I even started playing guitar, I'd stare at...

    There's always audio and shit on this page, lets keep it visual in this thread! :flex: If you have any cool live pics of your band post it! Can be anything, the drummer crowdsurfing or whatever. This is a pic from a cool local gigging hall, and with all these epic lights it's just awesome as...
