  1. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    from Russia ..and I really like them :yesway: "Hot Breeze" bridge (Ha!) & a "Rocket Queen" neck for my new semi-hollow body. The stock pups were pretty sweet but honky & lacked some output/versatility. These are better balanced & sound juicy/crunchy and awesome.. DEMO/TEST (Handheld...

    This are without a doubt some of the most cool looking and Design wise Headless/Travel Guitars I ever saw. Saw them today on FB (Russian Made I think): Lots of pics more (Constructing them and other models) on...

  4. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    So I just got this today. I decided that due to my issues with Kiesel and my general dislike for the company, I would try to trade off my Vader and this came up. Suhr Modern Satin. I have been wanting one for years. I shouldn't have waited so long. Absolutely fantastic player and about as...
  5. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    I started learning the solos to this today, and they're really very cool parts. There's a really great arpeggio section in the first lead break that I think is like a microcosm of some of his approaches to faster playing. It has an interesting arpeggio, some very deft sweeping, and some...

    I'd never even heard of this before I stumbled upon it on Spotify. Not exceptionally metal, but this is hauntingly beautiful:

    Ghost Win 2016 Best Metal Performance Grammy for 'Cirice' Good for them, recognition is recognition. Meliora is fantastic.

  9. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    So Floyd Rose seems to introduce another series (as if there wasn't enough already) but this one has a cool feature with the hex screw arm holder (similar to Gotoh Floyd). Can't find much about it on the net. Seems like they only exist on new 2015 Schecter guitars for the moment. Has anybody...

    Say what you will about the band (and I like them - they're consistently good, and occasionally spectacular), Dave Grohl is one of the coolest motherfuckers in the business. Even in a giant FF-emblazoned "throne" on rails moving forward and backward on the stage with his leg still up and in a...

    Very Maiden-like intro....I'm only 30 seconds in so far....but it's not bad, not sure if this fits in any "This kinda sounds like such and such era" of Ryche....and that's kinda cool.

    A friend of mine showed me these guys tonight. I've watched loads of their videos, and it's all just absolutely brilliant. They've had various lineups, with the guitarist being the only consistent member, but everyone who plays with them is insane. The cool thing is, unlike most of these sorts...

  14. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    It just struck me that NOBODY (???) makes custom active pickups?! It's all passives when you look at custom winders. Or are there any? Not that I'm interested at the moment, but would be cool if there were any.

    Sorry for my ineptitude for embedding video. I tried and didn't work. If someone wants to explain it to me like I'm 4 years old Thad be great. Anyways, in light of Shark week (which I've been glued to because I can't ride my bike still ), this seemed cool

    Summer NAMM 2015 New Products - The ESP Guitar Company The 24 fret ones look pretty nice. I'm not a super huge fan of the koa look so the M-II and EC-II look eh. The 5-string fetted BB model is pretty cool though, thought it was weird one was fretless and the other wasn't when they came out...

    This album started life in December with them travelling up to me to track drums. I mixed their EP a couple of years back and they were so happy with it they wanted me to engineer and produce their début album (deaf idiots). It's been a long ol' journey but it's finally due for release next...

    My Roland SDE 3000's - - The Official Steve Vai Website "the guy who came up with the SDE3000" is now the president of Boss. While he doesn't directly say they're going to release a product, he doesn't really say much when he's not in promo mode, so this popping up out of nowhere is a...
