  1. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    I'm searching around trying to find any guitar builders in Virginia. There are a ton of guys making acoustic guitars, but I can't find anyone making electrics. In Richmond we have Lindy Fralin making pickups and TKL making cases. There's apparently an amp builder in NoVA, Viking Amps, but he's...

    I dig this. It's elements from Doom that I really like, and it's a gal singing like a gal, instead of an angsty teenage guy choking on a mouthful of bees :lol:

    Was talking to my manager at work the other day (he 6'5" and stocky) he is looking into getting a guitar but the dude has huge hands. I did some searching @ Guitar Center but large fret boards are not a searchable feature :rofl: On top of that the guy is left handed. He just wants something...

    So my girlfriend wants to build a 3 string guitar and first we looked at Krappy Guitars, but we figured why not build it ourselves. She's actually a bit more skillde with woodwork than I am (can you imagine the possibility? :lol: ) So just to try the humbucker with three strings we parted...

    ONE BUILD AT A TIME IS NOT ENOUGH. I have these planks for the body (16.5x49.5cm each) as well as a Seymour Duncan Nazgul which I've had lying about for a while. Been considering making this a Les Paul Junior shape because of Carcass reasons but I'm feeling indecisive so any input would be...

    Last weekend I came across this band on youtube. Big time Sabbath vibe. Was surprised their first album came out in 1995 and have put out many studio albums since. Simplistic riffs but very heavy stuff. Had to tune down to C tuning to play Stone Magnet and then found most of their other songs...

    Thought there might be some interest in a new video/pay what you want single my brother has released. It's a nostalgic country waltz about an ex-girlfriend, her skinhead Dad and amorous mother. It's had some great feedback from Steve Lukather and Tommy Lee. Wilma, my brother's guitar, is...

    Every time I borrow my mom's classical (which is admittedly the nicest guitar I have ever played and something of a family heirloom passed down through generations) the thought strikes me that electric will never have tiny classy appointments like this. God damn. I want a fucking floyd with...

    After a long hiatus, and given the fact I'm currently listening some Testament again, I wanted to share my rendition of their song Electric Crown's solo section, full mix video. I recorded all the rhythm and lead guitars with this classy 1979 Gibson Les Paul and the Axe Fx II (v14.02); the...
