  1. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    So, I haven't posted any updates on the thread about my JTV-69 but the synopsis is that I ordered the repair parts for a fair price and in the meantime, I'm really digging this guitar and expecting it to stick around for a while. That said, I've been noodling on it a lot while I work on my...
  2. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    So I'm testing out a 57/66 set in my SLAT3-7 and I'm still debating if I keep them or not... I've noticed that the EMG 66 has a lot less output than the 57 and a ton more of bass (specs sheet shows identical output voltage values on both if that means something). Is this normal? I'm having a...
  3. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    I can't seem to find a place to buy just the cabling that comes with these. I've misplaced 90% of them and need to build a board. halp!
  4. Computers, Electronics, Gaming & IT
    I'm about ready to shoot myself in the head. Besides the fact that Windows constantly fails to configure updates, and shuts itself off for no reason...my dual monitors aren't working. They are two Acer 21.5 in LED screens. They are both capable of VGA and DVI. I don't want to use VGA. I...
  5. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    Alright, so. I rewired my bass. Sound is good, but there's a hum/buzz that I can't seem to troubleshoot. I've been all over the circuit with a continuity tester and all the grounds seem fine. Reflowed solder joints and all that. Swapped cables. Even tried different amps. I suspect the input...
  6. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    So my Randall RH150 keeps cracking and buzzing across all channels but it seems to stop when I flick and jiggle the tube. The underlying buzzing (to be considered a separate entity from the far more annoying crackling) also ceases when I touch the chassis, which made me think it's a grounding...
  7. Lifestyle, Health, Fitness & Food
    I don't know if it's stress, or anxiety, or what, but I'm usually a fairly thick-set guy (read: fat). No but seriously, I've been fat a couple of times in my life, but from my mid-20's onwards I've just been a normal size, but with a fairly big frame. Then out of nowhere I've got kinda...
  8. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    Can anyone give me a hand figuring this out? I'm trying to wire my CL/LF set into my guitar. Everything went smoothly but and everything SEEMED in order when i touched the poles with an allen wrench. However, when I plug the guitar in after stringing it up, the output of the bridge pickup is...
  9. General Music Discussion
    Hey guys, So I know this is kind of lame, but Ken Safarin, who did my solo album art (which I had to pay for) is doing a contest. Here is the work he did: So here is the deal. I am making my solo albums free. I totally expect myself to do a follow up to this first album, and for it to be...
  10. Computers, Electronics, Gaming & IT
    So, i picked myself up a fancy pants Zonet ZEW1642D Wireless N card to get the minecraft server up and running temporarily (Doesnt need anywhere near that much bandwidth), and well, i dont have a clue in hell what on earth i am doing. Not even kinda. :lol: Anyways, im running ubuntu server...
  11. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Let's get this out of the way; I'M A FUCKING NOOB. I'll add a screenshot in a few minutes after I play around with this some more, but I am attempting to re-amp through my Axe-Fx. I have recorded a direct guitar track through my Firestudio Mobile into Reaper. I set it to play a loop on repeat...
  12. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Ok, so I decided a little while ago that I want to reward myself with a custom guitar when I graduate with my PhD in about 2 years. The issue is, I can't really nail down all of the specs, mostly due to my inexperience. Every guitar I have owned has either been basswood or mahogany. I will...

  15. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    i´ve installed a tremol-no in my RG, and everything has been adjusted as required, and locked down. then suddenly i notice the entire bridge can now wiggle. like it´s loose or something. just a teeny wiggle. it didn´t annoy me very much, so i just figured i´d fix it later. later came along, and...
  16. Computers, Electronics, Gaming & IT
    So my internet provider had "technical issues" in this area the last few days, so I've had no net. They re-established a connection yesterday... but the net doesn't work on my main computer. I have 3 computers - one which is wired to the net (as in not wireless, it is the host and uses the main...
