    Was browsing Reverb and discovered this: https://reverb.com/item/33589415-sustainer-pickup-single-coil-isustainer-v1-0-white Looks basically like a Fernandes Sustainer, but much cheaper and with a smaller circuit. Have never seen, nor heard of these before. Anyone got any knowledge or...

    MF lists them as a fusion between a V30 and a greenback tonally (source: https://www.musiciansfriend.com/accessories/celestion-g12h-anniversary-30w-12-guitar-speaker) - anyone have experience to say if this is accurate or true?

    I would like to relate my very positive experience with Sweetwater during the past two weeks. Previously, I had two minor orders - a purchase of a gig bag for an inexpensive classical guitar and a purchase of five acoustic guitar humidifiers, the kind that go between the strings. About two...

    I am looking to get mostly out of the 'new guitars acquisition' business, as I pretty much have most of my bases covered now (a few shredders, a mahogany Les Paul type, a semi, a full hollow, a Strat, a Tele, you get the idea) and am looking at guitars that tick a lot of boxes. I LOVE Soloists...

    I've been shopping around for a poweramp to use with my AX8, and the SD powerstage units caught my eye. Fucking expensive, but they look sweet. Wondering if anyone here has any experience with them. Specifically if the 170w version can keep up with a clubfisted "i break $1000 of cynmbals a year"...

    Anyone with any experience of fanned fret guitars? Im considering an Ormsby SX (headstock is like reverse ESP M shape headstock) it will be a 6 string fanned fret from 27'' down to 25.5''. For anyone who has tried one how did you find it compared to a normal guitar? Difficult to get used to...

    I hope this post saves someone from the terrible experience I had with Jeff Kiesel and Kiesel Guitars. I have been a client of Kiesel Guitars (Carvin) for many years. I have bought 9 guitars from them. 3 over the past year and a half. I was on Facebook and saw a live video of Jeff Kiesel...

    What do you guys think of this amp? What does it do well? Any complaints? Which bands use it?

    Lengthy interview, I'm only about halfway through, got it on in the background while I work, but it's been fun and interesting so far (who knew Hetfield was a fucking bee-keeping expert!?)
  11. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    Hey guys, long shot once again but I figured I would ask. I ordered a Duncan Invader for one RG550, now looking for a different one as a second choice for another RG550. I keep seeing these in comparisons and demos online and I have to admit, they seem to sound pretty good but that might just...

    Anyone with experience with Gretsch G5655t CB + NEck radius question I was offered a trade for one of these. In terms of value I think it is fair. But what are these guitars like? I'm open to trying something new. But prefer medium to small necks. The PRS se 245 for example is too chunky...

    I picked up a Vox ToneLab ST Effects Modeler in trade today and I'm not sure whether to play with it a bit or just trade it straight away. It's in decent shape, but I'm not sure whether to try to learn to use it or not. Thanks -

    I notice they will be on sale during boxing week. Not sure what the discount will be as the ad doesn't say. How do they compare to say Rokit or other similarly priced options? I've only heard a friend's Rokit 6. Other than that I have no experience in this area. Sorry original title should...

    I'm specifically eyeing this one. I've played a couple Mythics that were pretty nice, but I was hoping someone here had more experience with them and could share that with me.
  16. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    I love the Rebel Yells in my Suhr Modern 7, and by and large are very happy with them. So, full disclosure, this is as much about the fact that I think the Suhr would look awesome with either Cream or Zebra pickups, as it is about the tones. Near as I can tell, the Emerald set should have...

    I like my RG370 but as with all people with an addiction I want to trade up. I have an opportunity to get one of these in good condition for $500. What do you guys think? Watched a premier guitar review on youtube and read their article on it. Their verdit was pick it up if you want a heavy...

    Looking for a Christmas present for my father, I thought i'd try to add to his (already impressive) mic collection. He somehow doesn't have a SM57(Sennheiser guy, but wants a few 57s for guitar and such) and while I thought about just grabbing one of those, I found a Rode M3 for a damn good...
  19. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    I hate making these sorts of threads usually, but there is a pretty clean looking one going cheap at the moment and its got me tempted - does anyone have any experience/thoughts on the RG450? The one I'm looking at is Korean made so that apparently places it in the mid 90s, and if I'm correct...

    I've been asked to join road house blues bar band (yay I'm actually going to start gigging again) :) the guys want me to get this type of sound Jeff used JCM 800's I'm not in the frame of mind to drop big coin on an amp I can't crank. someone suggested I take a look at the Laney GH50L or a...
