  1. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Sold my white Jackson on Tuesday and this popped up on my feed while I was taking down the Jackson listing. I couldn't believe how cheap it was, so I ran it past the crew in the BCR group I'm in and they were all like "buy it now, flip it for 4-5x as much tomorrow" so I verified the most recent...
  2. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    I took advantage of a 15% Black Friday sale and picked up this Taylor. :yesway: Sitka spruce top, rosewood sides and an ebony board. It's super resonant and sounds awesome. i haven't bothered with the electronics because I'll just mic it, but it's always nice to have. I also have to...
  3. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    New additions to the family. Finally got a replacement body for the old ibanez RG350EX along with a black pickguard and white pups(JB bridge and cheapo unbranded other positions). Got the JS32T Kelly a month ago or so. Its become my go-to. Just got the Hagstrom Fantoman in White along with the...
  4. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Random 3am purchase. One Rev G Racktifier. Displayed here in the "the sweet lord of darkness rig"(tm) Got a dodgy tube somewhere, but even that is not taking anything away from the shit eating grin that is the result of the orange channel. Holy fuck is that good. I think i am in love. I now...
  5. Music: Song A Week
    Is anyone interested in a song a week cover edition? I know not everyone is into writing, or has the time, but might be up for doing a cover a week? The rules would be that you need to produce a recording of a cover a week. Can be a cover of any song, in any style. This can be a song you...
  6. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    A few months back I picked up my current/only bass, an Ibanez EDB600, and while it plays great and looks just as good as it plays, I snagged it because in the case that I couldn't find a 5-string that I really liked, I could down tune that as my backup and know I still had a solid instrument in...
  7. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    So I'm down staying with my parents for the week and, since I do this twice a year, I've thought about picking up a cheap guitar locally and just keeping it here so i can still practice. Didn't want to spend more than $100 and originally have thought about trying to get a Squire Strat but I saw...
  8. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Picked up a TC Electronic HyperGravity Mini Pedal. Really like it clean and was quite surprised how good it sounded with dirt and full blown Distortion. I was thinking that I would only use it with cleans but I may be an "on most of the time" pedal. Have not messed with any tone prints yet but...
  9. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    I just picked up this E-II V on Musician's Friend. I've wanted a white ESP V for years and years, but I could never find one for a price I'd be willing to pay, and since a couple years back I bought a silver one, the few that would turn up I wouldn't buy since I didn't "need" it. This time I...
  10. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    The pull up on the OFR on my Xiphos was giving me issues. I dunno if it's the way the saddles are shaped, or what, but as you pull up the strings go lower against the fretboard a lot faster than the Gotoh trems in my other guitars. I thought about swapping the Gotoh from the purple Charvel to...

    Ahhh!!! I fooled you all didn't I? :smoking:
  12. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    I'm trying to cull the herd a bit and decided to do some horse trading at Atomic Music. Ran across a 2000 LP Classic with a headstock repair that was both insanely good and didn't require much additional cash beyond the 2-for-1 trade (my KWS strat that I wasn't using, along with my Jackson Kip...
  13. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    In december I startted a long and protracted journey to get hold of a uv7pwh from norway, and once I'd bought it and it shipped, the seller was kind enough to point me to an add on the norwegian version of craigslist. Wasn't posted anywhere else. Anyway, i had a look, couldn't quite believe it...

    So the Rhoads from Donnie got here today, and it's beautiful. Thanks :donnie:! His pictures of it are better than any I could take, so here's a couch shot of my Jackson Rhoads: Top row (L-R): 85 RR Custom, 86 RR Custom, 88 RR Custom, 90 RR Custom, 98 Custom Shop Bottom row (L-R): 01 Custom...
  15. Guitars For Sale / Trade / Wanted
    Selling a Jackson Stars LTD ASL-TN01. Blue Flamed Maple Top. Limited Edition. Made by FujiGen/Chushin Gakki, Japan. 2007 model. Looking into acquiring some other gear, so this one has to go. A bit of a shame... Sounds huge! A Mahogany Soloist, go figure. Could be better than some of its...
  16. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Got this back in October. Had been really wanting a Prestige Ibanez 7 but could never really justify the price when I already have a handful of good 7 strings. Then one beer fueled night I ran across this scratch and dent RGD3127 that had a few $$ knocked off so I snagged it. Couldn't be...

    I have not had a NAD for several years. The HT-5 is now retired, and living with my Dad. I got this today. Now.. GET OFF MAH LAWN DAGNABBIT. :scream2:
  18. Music: Other Instruments
    I've been on the hunt for a PJ something or other for a while now, and this popped up locally. Besides some scratchy pots, a missing knob, and a chip on the tip of the headstock (which I immediately made worse), it's pretty much perfect. Terrible phone pics: It also came with the best case...
  19. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    First off... I know... the last one was the "last" one. So just keep your filthy mouths shut! :lol: This was an unexpected trade that was presented to me. I had my Universe on Offer-Up and kind of forgot it was on there. Got a message a couple weeks ago asking if I would trade a Kiesel Vader...

    So, dude bolted a string to a couple trees, grabbed a pickup, and started plucking :lol:
