    Got a sudden influx of cash near my birthday so I did what any normal person does- spend it. I've been taking drum lessons since February and have been using an e-kit this whole time. While I do like the kit, it's kinda clear that I need to play an acoustic kit while I learn the fundamentals...

    This is a total bucket list guitar for me, I've wanted one forever. It's in pretty excellent shape, but needs fresh strings and a bath before I can put any time on it. :metal: And the current fleet in my office. These are the ones I play regularly, everything else is in a case in my...

    I'll have my first ever roasted maple neck in from Warmoth this coming Tuesday. This is my first experience with roasted maple. It's the only neck they insure without a finish so I assume it's alright to use without one but i'm just curious if I should maybe put some tung oil or gunstock oil or...

    Saw this yesterday but forget to post it. Dont know if they are Europe Only... PRS Europe does a sweet limited-edition model, and its new run of Maple Limited SE Custom 24 guitars is no exception. The limited model offers a maple fretboard that gives PRS's iconic bird inlays a blackout...

    My dads current band (he's on guitar) just released their promo on youtube I have produced/recorded/mixed everything, and did drums too because they had no drummer at the time. I want some opinions on the mix! This is "just" the promo, so any suggestions until the album is welcome!

    I was thinking about if I got for example an all roasted maple neck but want a sort of "ebony look" Can I just dye the maple with anything I would otherwise dye rosewood with, or would that be a bad idea? I know these woods works differently, so therefor I ask. Its a bit expensive to go and...

    Why did they put such a boring neck on this one?????????????? The other RG3570s had the sharktooth-outline inlays and even white binding around the fretboard. It's near perfect for me, spec-wise; plus it's got white binding AND black&white pickguard AND a conservatively colored maple top...

    My necks and strings NEVER gets gunky or dirty, my hands barely sweat anything. I also often wash my hands with washing liquid before playing, not that I have to, but it's always good to have dry hands. But every time I have a visitor they gunk up my strings and necks in five minutes :roll2...

    Ok, first a shitty cell phone pic: I managed to hold out almost 24 hours after this was announced at NAMM. It's a 1527 with an ash body and a maple fretboard, and a pair of Dimarzio PAFs. It's pretty much all I ever wanted in an Ibanez, and they even did it in my favorite finish they're...

    I have been hunting the best deal on an all black P bass with maple fretboard. I was torn between a Squier Classic Vibe, I like them a lot, building my own, would have ran an easy $800+ for warmoth body and neck build, or something used for less. I scored this off ebay, uncontested for $495...

    I'd decided I would thin the herd. I had... have too many guitars. I know, never, never too many. But my office will only take so many stands and I really don't like case queens tying up my money. So, I was able to sell two guitars for cash on Craigslist (the third is still up there) and...

    When my 1527M sold, I put a down payment on an Elysian Espada 6. I always thought the Espada shape was perfect, and Adams work on my 7621, and his past builds/modifications have all left me totally confident in Adams work, and he's cool to talk to about cars and moonshine so it's a win win. I...
