  1. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    2 questions : - Why some of their pickups have the logo on them, and some not? Bought a Tone Zone bridge humbucker for my Robin, and 98% of the Tone Zone I see are without the logo. Same goes with other models. - Received my pickups installed that way from my luthier. I trust him on what he's...
  2. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    So I got this guitar from a friend when I was 17ish and it was my modding/painting guinea pig for a while. A couple years ago I decided to undo all the shit that I did to it previously and get it back to stock-ish. Specs as it was when I got it - Strat/San Dimas Style body - Dark Blue - H-H* -...

    Not sure if this can actully be done but I'll ask anyway. Im currently working on a drum mix for my friend and I's album and he uses Logic although we have the same plugin suite (waves and other stuff). Im wondering if there is a way to export an automation map for things like reverb on a...

    I'm thinking of adding a 7 string RG to the stable, but the sheer volume of different models has me drowning in a sea of numbers trying to sort out what's what. So my question to the experts: is there a 26.5" scale, tremolo equipped RG worth buying available in the neighborhood of $800 (new or...

    The net is awash with conflicting and generally useless information, and sifting through it is a proper rabbit hole, so I'm just asking for some very simple answers based on your experience. I know all the differences and nuances of using nitro vs poly etc. Fuck using nitro, shit takes a...
  6. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Hey guys - This evening, I'm checking out a possible trade for me. The object of my affection is a Mark V 90 combo. Includes footswitch and cover. Below are the photos sent to me. The plan is to test it at this guy's place. Anything I should look for? Any quirks that I should be aware of...
  7. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    so I just bought a used set of EMGs off ebay for a steal, and now they are here i'm a little worried i've been duped as these don't seem to match any wiring diagrams i can find, and all EMG quick connects i've seen are 3 pins and not 5 pins like these are. They look like EMG HZs from the back...
  8. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    I know you guys would rather read reviews than be asked stupid questions but since I have little time to spend going to stores to try different pedals: What's a good chorus pedal to use with ultragain (to fatten up harmonics per example)? If you have no idea what I'm talking about, listen to...
  9. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    I'm trying to make my bandmate's 5153 100W head midi switchable. I've found the schematic (here) and knocked up an adaptor box to convert the TRS relays of the switcher to the 7 pin DIN of the footswitch cable. This works perfectly for manually triggering the relays, but as soon as we try...

    is there a way to enable LeCab2 on my monitor in Reaper x64? I can hear the IR's I've loaded when I play back recorded tracks, but I want to hear the impulses when I'm not recording, so I can audition some etc before I start. That would also be super useful for day to day jamming through an...

    WAs cruising craigslist and came up on this ad for a japanese J-craft 7 string for 300. But the pics dont add up. When i asked about the specifics the dude cussed me out. look how the neck heel sticks way out from the body. What does this dude have going on here...
  12. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Any knowledge would be appreciated. I don't know how long it has been going on, the left side of my VHT2150 (2 independent 100watts power amps) power amp works well and sounds good, but there is a noticeable low hum coming from the speaker on the left side only. When I tap the front panel which...

    I'm hunting for a short scale (24.75") super strat. I see Fusion models pop up all the time on Ebay. Which models are short scale?

    Jackson Kelly Pointy Guitar with Floyd Rose Blue Purple | eBay I came across this listing last night, thought it was a steal and almost clicked "buy it now" but then I started scrutinizing the photos and saw a few red flags: First of all, guy says "might be a KE3..." Um, there are lots of...
  15. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Hey guys another WTF is this Jackson thead. For the life of me I can't find that Jackson ever made a Professional with a TOM in HSH configuration and with a reverse headstock and sharkies. What this be? http://i1082.photobucket.com/albums/j379/brow_tines/photo-1.jpg...

    So I'm working on, what I'm sure is a very basic Java assignment on using Interfaces and overides and such. Here are the instructions given, for which I think I only need help with one aspect: It's point #3 that I'm having a problem with. I have to essentially provide values in Vehicle that...
  17. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Ok, I got this awhile back and I'm not exactly sure on what is it and have been hoping to find out. It is american made and have done research and believe it was built in 1990 in Ontario, CA and possibly a Jackson Fusion? If you cannot read the neck plate good enough it reads: 000659 4452...
  18. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Hi, I'm looking into switching out the 6L6's on my knucklehead reverb. I like EL34's, but I'm also searching for a tube that will give some extra low end and low mids punch, I also want to get rid of the rivera's harsh\brittle highs and buzz. I talked to eurotubes and talked to doug'stubes...
