1. Music: Recording Studio
    Been getting serious about recording lately. I already did some upgrades to my recording hardware last year (new computer, new interface, monitor speakers, etc.) I just invested some more into mics, acoustic treatment, etc. and I'm filling in some of the last few essential gaps. One of the...
  2. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    Since switching between a Gotoh and Floyd Rose trems, a guitar wasn't staying in tune as well. Some fettling was done: - cleaned studs and knife edges - sanded knife edges, with 1200 grit sandpaper wrapped around a stick - wrapped the studs in teflon tape - re-applied chapstick to studs...
  3. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    Behold! I actually did it! I found a cheap Squier Showmaster during the weekend (I bought it for the EMG HSS set for another guitar, but the Squier parts themself seems decent enough to upgrade).

  9. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    So, after many trials and tribulations at the USA/Canadian border wondering if this guitar was actually painted in Ghostbusters Slime paint and perhaps radioactive, it finally made it's way to my door (well, more like I had to go to UPS's door to fucking pick it up because I paid my import duty...
  10. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    I just dropped off my acoustic (Seagull S12+) to the shop to get my pickup installed properly (has a Seymour Duncan Mag Mic in the soundhole, but the wire's been hanging out until now, I'm sure I want the pickup to stick around, so I'm getting the wire properly installed). It's gonna be gone...
