I thought for sure he was going to end up with a signature Marshall or Friedman amp, so I'm surprised to see him with something like this. He definitely gets some killer tones out of the set-up and I'm still enough of a Vai fanboy to think "If he's digging this, it's got to be pretty decent." as...
I did this one for a guitar show recently and as much as I dig it, I like the guitar I built for myself anyways more. So, this one is up for 2100 Canadian + shipping and case....which is probably around 1700 us. It was supposed to have EMG's and a piezo system, but I never ended...
A few days ago, I got the bug to try to see if I could get close to John Petrucci's tone in a stem I found on YouTube for On The Backs of Angels. The tone in that stem is really similar to the awesome Crunch channel tone Petrucci gets in the Proto Playthrough video, so I used the settings Mesa...
I went to Rick Graham's YouTube channel, and he has this video set as the one that plays on his home page. I had no idea he used to be overweight. I must have only seen recent videos. This is pretty nuts, and figured some of you fitness guys might dig this.
replacing the Dimarzio Chopper in the neck spot with this. I like the chopper but it's a tad too hot for my tastes. Was checking out medium output pickups and figured I'd give the demon a shot. Waiting for my bridge pickup to arrive can't wait to get this installed.
Mesa posted up pictures of the settings of the video we all have been drooling over. I know we basically had them figured out, but its nice to see them in graphic form. :yesway:

Hey. I have been playing guitar for a year or so (im still a noobie so don't get surprised if I sound really lame). I originally wanted to play lots of thrash metal, but found that most of the solos are alot harder than I thought. At some point I sorta lost interest and started playing my cheap...
This one is totally finished yet (tuners dont' have the lock down screw drilled yet), so the pics look like they're taken with a potato. The better ones will be coming once i do the music store test and have way better lighting.
