    So my poor wife asked me something about something on her computer, and in troubleshooting discovered (or rather, was shocked to recall) that it's from 2012. This injustice cannot stand. I'm looking at getting her a new machine. No screaming gamer PC's, but obviously no shitboxes either...

    Can't find anything on a specific TV series; likely I remember something incorrect, so.. Some info, in case you guys knows something: Late 80's or early 90's TV series "Black Roses", about a nuclear accident coverup in England. Had an American specialist named Jedburg in it. Clapton played the...

    Keep seeing pieces on this. It's great that a version of "The Ultimate Sin" is going to be back in print, after the lack of availability that has been going on forever, but in all the pieces I've seen on this it doesn't bother to mention whether Blizzard, etc. features the original drums and...

    I have a blackstar solidstate 150W head(ID150H) and I'm looking for a cabinet for it. I just moved into a new apartment a few weeks ago and needed the money to move in, so I sold the old cab(peavey 412MS) to friend from work and let him borrow my head until I can find a new cab. Being that its...

    Sadly the nice looking Proto 2 will not be available it seems, would make the production super expensive. Notice how he calls it a "she" at min 1.48 ;)

    For whatever reason this cab seems impossible to find on google. Mostly looking to see if its made out of MDF or plywood and what speakers are in it. Found one I might be able to get for a good trade to pair with my Vader 2x12 & AX8.

    I'm a huuuuuge fan of Destiny. Thought I'd share this in case there are others out there also. I'm ready for a new raid! :yesway: Edit: If any mods can get the player to show up - I tried. I can never get it to work.

    I've been asking around different places and couldn't get any good answers, but I just discovered that the Gotoh locking nuts uses metric radius, so I checked with a ruler and this is the answers! The wider nut (GHL) has 400mm radius = almost 16" The narrow nut (FGR) has a 360mm radius = about...

    Happy weekend, guys - So I'm sitting here in my office, Strat plugged into the my Fender Hot Rod DeVille - I'm trying to figure out tone - what I'm looking for is Gov't Mule meets Indigenous but I would settle for rolling off the "bang" I get from my pick attack and a smooth, greasy sustain...

    Well the day has arrived where my gear came from Japan. I paid for the single box repack for reasons that will be obvious in a moment. The box itself is sturdy and well taped, and nice enough to keep for shipping another guitar making the 1200Y repack fee well worth it. Inside was the guitar...

    Anyone have a ESP 7 string? How is the guitar from your experience? I'm very intrested in getting this piece of art, but I'm just waiting for Christmas to get my hands on one. I'm planning to get a Fender Champion 100 (2x12) amp, I've heard very good things about this guy. You know how good...

    Does anyone know what kind of neck shape a 1993 Custom M-II had (like this one: FT WTT: rare ESP custom KH-2 )? Was it Extra Thin Flat like bolt-on versions from 2000s? Or Extra Thin U like NTBs? And what was the fretboard radius? Also, would a current Floyd Rose Original fit in that guitar?

    Got a question to throw out there for those who have sold and bought online. I have a 7 string Ibanez listed on Craigslist and got a reply from this guy in the UK wanting to know if I would consider shipping international. Has anyone on here had any issues with selling overseas and what should...

    I don't know if anyone can believe I can hardly believe it, myself. Anyway, driving home two days ago, I happened to see someone on the side of the road selling a bunch of garbage and amidst all this garbage, I caught a glimpse of a reverse headstock. My spider-senses were going...

    So, i have the chance of buying an Ibanez k-7, it looks (specs wise) like a pretty cool guitar (mahogany body, "prestige like" neck with 5 pieces of wood, decent tremolo and pickups, made in Japan, etc). This guitar im looking at its pretty well taken cared of, and the price looks good too. Im...

    I found a Jackson RR7V used online(GC) for $380. Good deal? Bad deal? Are they decent guitars? I've got a JRR94 and am quite happy with it, but I haven't seen very many of the RR7V's and I don't know shit about them. I love Jackson V's, but if the RR7's are junk I'd rather steer clear.
