    Apple to start making TVs, report says - CNN.com I'm sure they'll be reasonably priced. :lol: It sucks that they want to bundle all of their shit with it. I'd love a reasonably priced 50' version of my iMac screen, but since the 27" monitor-only version is $1,000 with no HDMI, I think I'll...
  2. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    I've got a Stratocaster body that's been sitting in my closet now for ages waiting for me to decide on a finish. I'm a big fan of the look of the old Paisley telecasters, and would like to replicate that look on my strat. I've done some Google searching for color ideas and such, but most of the...

    What's some of yours? Here are mine (don't ban me mods :wub:) -German thrash is better than American thrash (exception being Testament) -Janick Gers brings a lot of positives to Maiden (and some negatives too) -Cliff Burton is massively overrated as a bass player (great songwriter/arranger...

    So ABM seems to be making a piezo floyd. Go to their page (ABM- High Quality Guitar Parts), and click on new products, and you get a few pictures and a notice that more info will be available on the new site due in july. Opening the middle picture in a new window shows that it was resized WAY...
  5. Music: Recording Studio
    well...sorta. I just got a pair of M-Audio AV-40s, and I dont have stands for them, so they're sitting on my desk atm (each on top of a small layer of foam, a mouse pad, and some styrofoam, to help isolate it from my desk). I'm poor as shit, but I need to figure out a way to better way to...
  6. Music: Other Instruments
    This isn't really a drum programming question, it's more aimed at drummers. I'm flushing out a song idea, and the first thing I do once I have my tempo is to just fill a track with hat hits on the beat to help myself keep time. Then I build kicks/snare tracks around it, and I'm left with a...

    Those two Alien prequels? Ridley Scott tells us more! | Blastr Fucking yes. :D
  8. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    See title. I'm considering getting a body made for the neck I just picked up, because I love 22 fret guitars, love offset dots, and don't particularly like the S-series shape. So I'd be looking to order an RG body, with the bridge routed for a 22 fret scale. Since Courtney poofed, and Sims is...
  9. MG.ORG Status Updates
    Things might get ugly here and there, bear with me (and blame Drew) if anything looks temporarily out of whack.
  10. Music: Recording Studio
    So, I've been playing a lot of Fallout 3, and While I love the music in it, I'd like to create a playlist for myself of late 40's-early-60's songs sounding like they're coming through an AM radio instead of being a Stereophonic Experience, as it were. Here's the song I want to do first. I...

    The phrasing is just phenomenal. I wish I could play like that. I feel a lot more jazz-fusion coming up in my future. YouTube - ALEX HUTCHINGS - ICE COLD
  13. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    I can't tell you guys how good it feels to finally track down that one piece of gear you've been GASing over for years. It's like everything is finally coming together and it feels awesome. Beyond awesome. So, rather than keeping you all in suspense and making your actually scroll down the...
  14. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    I want to get one of these: Buy Levy's M7DP01 Distressed Leather Skulls Guitar Strap | Guitar & Bass Straps | Musician's Friend But they want $32 to ship to Canada.... If someone would tack that onto an order, then ship it up to me, I would greatly appreciate it. I'll even pay you :lol:

  16. Music: Recording Studio
    I'm at the point in my life where I need to move up badly. either a band or jam with someone. I don't know alot of peeps in my area that can jam with me so it's coming down to making my own clips. I love the way bulb and zimbloth's recordings come out so I'm gonna semi go that route. Can you...

    KxK Picstory (844 Days in the making) Preface: I'm a huge fan of Holdsworth and Shawn Lane. I've given much of my attention to the 'whys' of their gear choices, and tried to learn from their experiences. With that being said, I created these specs for a custom KxK Sii-7 based on that...
  18. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    A while back, I cut a string slot too deep, ruining the nut, and didn't have another nut black. In the midst of tearing the house apart in seach of a nut blank, I found a cow bone that the dog had been chewing. I thought, "Bone is bone.", right? Well, it actually worked! So, last night I...
  19. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    So as my skills keep developing and I keep improving my playing I find my playing is starting to drift towards playing more leads and solos...along with that shift in style is coming the curiosity of getting a floating bridge floyd rose guitar. I just wanted to ask you guys, how does the tuning...
