    I bought a 5150 a while ago. Picked it up at my favorite shop in the US for a good price. Awesome sounding head. It was $500 and I bought it the second I saw it. Took it to rehearsal after. After about 45 minutes the volume dropped significantly. Which of course led to the drummer and other...

    So long story short I've spent a massive amount of time with my Ecstasy and I love it to death BUT I'm just not entirely satisfied with the tone for my purposes. I find I've been using my 5150II and Megalith Beta more so and as I'm not gigging with my band yet I'm not in quite a rush to pick...

    Hi, about a week ago I got a brand-new JP7 (I will make a proper NGD-thread with more pics later). Awesome guitar, just one small issue: when the guitar arrived, the trem bar was loose in the case and when I opened the case, the bar was halfway lying across the headstock and caused a small dent...

    Im curious what everyone's main acoustic is and why? I have an Ibanez AW 7 string that I'm not getting along with anymore but I know if I get rid of it I'll regret it. I bought it new in 04' after wanting one for years. It aged well, sounds good, great projection and balanced tone and it sits...

    Hi, about a year ago or so I started replacing stock PU's in some of my 7-string guitars. I installed a CrunchLab/Liquifire combo in an RG827 premium, and I installed Blazes in another RG827. Just a few weeks ago I installed another CL/LF in one of my Sterling byMM JP70s and an...

    I'm sure most of you know that I have an "Ibby" body on the way home to me from Nate Perle. During the course of the building process I've changed the design in my head about 637,198,472,518 times, and I still can't decide what I really want. :lol: First up is the finish. I might go with a...

    Ok here goes.. Ive recently changed from an amp full of.effects to a 6505 combo. Was thinking of getting some pedals. I mainly use, harmony, flange and sometimes a delay. Now, a multi affects pedal would give me all this at.a lower price of buying pedals separately. I could even sell my.wah...

    So, my trusty old jackson DX1, routed for lo pro floyd style, has had the tremolno taken out of it with fanciful notions of, for the first time in 15 years, using the trem. It has a gotoh in it. The locking screws on the gotoh sit just barely above the body, with about 2mm (max) extension over...

    So I have a black Ibby. I got a great deal on a black/green zebra dimarzio for the bridge. It already has a black AN in the neck. I would also like to match the neck pickup but the reason I got a deal on the bridge pickup is bc dimarzio has changed their green. If I get a green/zebra AN it wont...

    Toss me some ideas. Here, friends, are some hastily taken washed out cell phone pics of my desk. I want to get my monitors off of there, both so that they sound better, and so that I can put a second screen up on top. The problem is, if I get stands, and move them to the sides, I can't...

    I'm sanding my bandmate's S7320 (still!) and although all the paint is off, the sawdust is white, and it looks as if the grain of the wood is under a really thin veneer of lacquer or something. Is it ok to oil on this, is this just some sort of illusion or do they put a clear coat on it before...

    So check this I had dimarzio crunch lab and liqifire pups put in my prestige last week. And got it back plugged it in and I thought it sounded like ass. Store guy said it was cuz I'm used to EMG(whatever) so after some playing I turn the tone knob. Oh god, so the vol all the way up would...

    I recently purchased a Jackson JS32RR from GC and I'm now at the point where: 1) I am going to need a new amp sooner or later, the one I'm currently using is a Peavey Rage 158 and it's only 15W so I'd like a larger one. I have no clue as to what would work best for me, so I'm asking you. 2) I...

    So, I'm in a situation where I have to choose between getting either the ESP LTD EX-Avatar or B.C. Rich Mockingbird ST What would you choose? I have to make my decision by tuesday! :eek:

    Hey dudes. A couple weeks back my guitar player's house caught fire, and pretty much all of our equipment suffered pretty bad smoke damage, including the Dual Rectifier that I had bought from a friend a couple months back. Luckily for us, his house was covered by insurance and all of our...

    So, here's the situation: I've finally managed to sell my old Warlock, which has been on the market for over a year at this point, and the original plan was to sell that and then my Deliverance 60 head to fund a Sig:X. Now I'm playing with the idea of getting a Blackstar Club 40 for a practice...

  19. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    So, I've got some money, because I sold my half-stack (being that I'm playing bass in my band, I really don't need a half-stack at home, and wasn't using it much, and we're looking at maybe moving into a smaller apartment eventually). Things I need/want (in no particular order) and will be...

    So, my gear life never seems to be without excitement.... I just ordered a set of Nailbombs for my RG7421XL. This was originally intended to be my main, but now that I found out the Carvin 7 I want is only $989, I'm going to end up pulling the trigger on that. Here's my question: Should I...
