    So, the day has come. My pickups arrived for the Schecter Solo my wife calls The Dark Mistress. They are the black brushed chrome EMG 57/66 set. Also going to install M-Steel 10's. Brace yourself, bitch... we're doin' this dry.

    Thinking about a change in my Suhr again - I like how the Rebel Yells sound, but theyre' really not all that hot, at all, meaning I have to push the Rectfier's preamp gain further than it likes, and I've got them adjusted about as close to the strings as I can get away with. They kill for lower...

    Do you hate good tone? Is chainsaw black metal grind your thing? Do you run a Metal Zone into your Crate full stack? Do you think Dimebag used too much mids? Do you own a Mark V and run the gain, treble and presence on 10? WELL TODAY IS YOUR LUCKY DAY FRIEND. Ol' Papa Quigs has JUST the...

    I did a forum search but did not find anything on this, anyone tried one of these yet? Seems like a great idea, it automatically bias's your amp and you can set custom bias to run two 6l6 and two El34 if you want. Also great for Mesa Products that run low bias or if you have miss matched tubes...

    Exactly as the title states, is there an easy way to install a bridge ground on a guitar that doesn't have one?

    Although this isn't exactly a new thing, I did my first solderless EMG install tonight. The guitar is an LTD EC50 and the pickups were a pair of EMG 60's. Up to this point, pickup installs was always a soldering affair which, on occasion, meant hunting down a weak solder point. Other than...

    Got a little package from Pennsylvania today. FINALLY. Absolutely no thanks to the USPS who lost my package. Banjo Mike is the frickin man. Look at all the fun shit he includes with your pickup purchase: Here's the '59-7 Neck and the Duncan Distortion 7 Bridge: Neato baseplate...

    So while I was on vacation in Colorado last week, my buddy Cyrus shot me an email with a link to a fresh looking RG7620GN. Of course I couldn't let it fall into the wrong hands (again) so, Cyrus being the awesome dude he is, snapped it up for me and held onto it until I got back. Yesterday, I...

    I have 4 SATA ports on my board. SATA0 is my primary, and now im tossing a 2nd hard disk in there on SATA1. When I boot, the drive isn't recognized. Says SATA1 Not Found. Looking under CMOS, SATA0 is there, all snuggly and happy, but the second disk drive isnt. I'm sure I'm missing something...

    I would like to create a CD that installs my current Linux Mint setup. I've never done this before, so I'm not sure if there is an easy tool available to do this, or if I should .tar.gz it up and find/build an installer script and all that myself. I dig the setup that I have, and I would like...

    They fit! :yesway: Ignore the strings/wires still in from the old stuff - I have to run out and grab some pickup rings, and wanted to make sure they actually fit in the guitar before I started taking it apart. All 6 wires on these are soldered somewhere crazy, so this may take me a while. :lol:
