  1. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    Hi, does someone here uses a downtuned guitar using thicker string gauges (like D'addario EXL148 or similar)? Can someone post a pic of the nut with a similar setup? I've ordered a new guitar incl. a setup for drop c from a (well know) guitar shop and I'm not really happy with the results. It's...

    I cannot for the life of me get this Randy Rhoads Jackson V tuned to drop C# with 13-56s on this god forsaken Floyd Rose bridge - Can someone please help me do this.

    Looks to me like he's using one-finger barre chords, and at times when he's chugging the open B5 he's clearly not fretting anything. Not a massive fan of the song on the whole, but just how fucking SICK is that section starting at 2:55? That riff, and then when the whole band come back in...

    Hey folks - If I wanted to go drop D on my Les Paul, what string gauge would you suggest? Currently, it's 46-9. Would 52-10 be alright? I have a couple sets of 52-10 lying around.

    Hi, My first post here. I'm trying dropping down to B standard tuning and I'm a bit stuck as to which string gauge to use. I play an LTD EC401 and I've just tried Ernie Ball 11-54 which are a bit too loose. Without me wasting more money I don't really have, does anyone play in this tuning...

    Hey guys, quick question: what string-gauges do you use for a Double Drop E tuning (E A E A D G B e)? A friend of me has the Shecter Omen 8, so scale length would be 26.5". Have not found a lot of infos on this while googling, so I figured you guys might know... Thanks in advance :)

    Trying to decide which one to go with and wondered what you guys think. I am looking for a guitar to setup with 12's and leave it tuned in drop C or B. I've narrowed my choices down to either a Fender Jim Root strat, or an ESP M-1. They're both around $1000 used and I like different aspects...
  8. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    Posted this on the other forum, but I'm desperate for opinions. Basically I'm too lazy and cheap to buy and install another EMG set for my upcoming Kelly, so I'm looking for opinions on the Lace Drop N' Gain bridge pickup. Already tried several supposed active-like passives, like the...

    Yes yes, another comparison thread..I don't have access to play either one of these exact models but I'm familiar with the neck shapes of both. As mentioned, I'm looking for a new guitar that will be setup in drop B or C and have come across two really good deals that I'm trying to decide...
  10. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    I've been looking for a solution to the problem of having to tune my guitars down constantly. Of the 15 guitars I own I only play 3 on a regular basis but still seem to be tuning them up or down constantly. 2 of 3 have Floyd Rose bridge. I've been looking at the Digitech Polyphonic Drop Tune...

    Hey guys I'm looking for some advice on my next guitar. I want something that I can play lower tuned songs with and was considering just buying another 6string to throw on something like 12's and tuned in drop B. Then I started to wonder if maybe a 7 string would be an option? Does 6 string...
