    ...and it's actually kinda awesome. Considering I was still in high school when Downward is Heavenward was released, I'm not sure which is the biggest surprise, that this is easily on par with their mid-90s output, or that it exists at all. Bandcamp's album of the day from yesterday...

    Guys, I am getting a few more single coil guitars and am looking at ways to cut the 60 cycle hum that doesn't break the bank and will work on all my single coil guitars (will be 5 shortly). So, switching pickups is a no go right off the bat. I have heard the EH Hum Debugger is both great, and...

    I bought a house built in 1966, but it has updated wiring, everything is grounded, and the fuse panel is properly grounded. But I get a wicket hum through my amps here, My SVT-II Pro, 6505+ and even my solid state TC BG250. It comes through the guitars, you can hear it fade in and out...

    £250 A real utilitarian workhorse guitar. It's been modded with a lo-pro edge trem, a 1-hum pickguard, dimarzio straplock and strap, seymour duncan tb6 distortion. 24 frets, neck thru, fret dress, unreal playability. Some marks but been well serviced and looked after. Priced to sell. Can post...

    Seen this a few days ago and have major GAS right now. Thinking about trying to sell my Zion neck'd axe to help fund it. Gibson's QC sucks, but I can just return it if I get a shit one. I've lusted after a single humbucker LP for years now but most models are/were all mahogany flat tops or from...
  6. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    still sounds like a true single coil and not a mini humbucker? I want a hot neck pickup for my incoming RG560 and I want one that is hum canceling but I still want it to sound like a single. I really like the Dimarzio Heavy Blues 2 but it's not all that hot. something in that vein would be killer.
  7. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    So, I've decided to go with the Freeway Ultra in my LP with the BKP Rebel Yell bridge and Mississippi Queen neck. The diagram states that the, "neck pickup should be the same magnetic polarity as humbucker's screw coil for hum-cancelling operation in positions 1 and 5." Free-Way 3X3-05...

    Guitar is literally as old as I am :lol: I could pay cash pretty soon, or he's interested in a trade for my '93 Peavey 412MS that no one seems to want to buy, so I'm considering unloading it that way. I'm thinking, for the price, if the neck and body are in good shape and I like the feel, it's...
  10. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    I've just put together a new board and everything was sweet until today. I've turned everything on and there's a terrible hum when more than one pedal is engaged. I'm using a power supply with isolated outputs and the only thing I've done differently is mount everything on a board. Just mdf...

    Just got this, it's a Kevin Bond signature rhoads. Don't really know much about that dude or his playing (I know he was in superjoint...) but this is a pretty cool guitar. It's really light weight, which I'm not a fan of but it doesn't bother me that much. I like how it doesn't have a skinny...

    So I started this the other day it's an old 7620 body I had for awhile. I'm trying to keep this as simple as I can. I'm not sure weather to run a volume & a momentary kill button or just an on/off switch. I got the trem cavity routed out for the edge, I would rather have a Lo-pro but this is...
  13. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Yamaha RG something 610M or something. Fucking slays. One of the coolest headstock shapes ever, neck that is almost a dead ringer for an HM strat, manliest pickup config ever, trem design is awesome, blower switch. Will probably replace the pickup with an X2N, but the stock one isn't bad.

    Is this possible to do? I Just received 2 4conductor black hawks and would like the wiring as follows. 1-Bridge 2-Bridge and neck coil tap 3-Both 4-Neck Coil Tap 5-Neck

    Hey guys, I've got an issue with my RG7321 that I just can't seem to solve. Basically, I'm getting a lot of hum whenever I'm not touching the strings. Put my hand on the strings - the problem goes away. My first thought was that the strings / bridge aren't properly grounded, but... they are. I...

    Hey there, long time lurker, first time poster. A little more than a year ago a friend of mine gave me a Dean MLX7 that was in "scavenge any usable parts" condition. It's missing a few essentials and the owner before him routed the bridge position for an emg. Luckily, a 707 was included as well...
  17. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    Waiting to hear back from Mai Guitar to send final payment for the custom body. Looking at pickups now and can't really decide. Last time I had a swamp ash guitar was my ESP H207 and used Evolution/Air Norton. Looking for Duncan or Dimarzio suggestions however I may try out an Aldrich if it...
  18. Music: Recording Studio
    I've decided to use my old Samsung 22" LCD monitor I've been keeping up in the closet. My laptop has two video outputs, HDMI and SVGA. The monitor only has SVGA and DVI-D, so I got an SVGA cable and connected it the old fashioned analog way. So far so good, the computer and monitor work...
  19. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    I have some mild/light AC hum from my 6505, so I figured I'd try this thing out: Amazon.com: Electro-Harmonix Hum Debugger: Musical Instruments Verdict: Pass. It definitely works. I can stand in front of my amp and hold the pickups up to the tubes and there is NO hum, and as far as I can tell...
  20. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    It's always a bad sign that I don't even know which is the right forum for this on my own site. :lol: My KxK's bridge pickup started picking up some serious hum. I tried a different cable, and since I have the option, a whole different rig, and it's still there - crazy, super loud hum. It only...
