  1. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    I make pickguards quite a bit for customers. Particularly Charvels, because the aftermarket scene is pretty scant. Made a ton since lockdown. It's easy to source 1ply gloss or matte black/white, 3ply B/W/B, W/B/W, tortoiseshell, all the usual crap... I'll grab a sheet here and there off eBay or...

  3. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    I've been studying guitar for about 9 months now, and around 6 months ago I started typing up my hand written notes in GIMP, to make 8.5x11" images I can print up for my guitar binder. A few days ago, I decided to share them on the internet. After some feedback on other forums and discord...

    So, I figured I'd snatch one of these up because it had good bones for a modding. I added Hipshot locking tuners, a Hipshot 8-string hardtail, and a pair of EMGs :yesway:

    So after the re fret on my axe, it needed a new nut ( I cracked the bone nut removing it ). originally I wanted to use a floyd nut, and had modified one to use. However, everyone told me to get a reg nut. I ended up going with bone and was happy, until I decided to try my original plan. after...

    I noticed, that my soloproject (DropTheSun) material isn't working in this forum. Too djenty they say. So, that gave me an idea to share some of my band project material instead. These are two songs that i wrote for my band a while ago.

    On occasion in my shop, I like to try making parts out of non-standard materials, in this case a new nut for my tired old friend, the "Rativerse" (formerly known as 'Potty' the UV). The material is Acrylic Acetate, a hard plastic used most commonly in the pen-turning crowd, and comes in numerous...

    :wavey: Hey everyone. I posted a younger version of this mix in my Apogee Jam thread, but worked on it and think it deserves its own thread. I'd really like some comments or opinions on this. Just trying to learn. :) http://soundcloud.com/jsmccabe/teaser-2 I used... Schecter Loomis Apogee...

    Mr. Muenzner (of Obscura and formerly Necrophagist) posted some stuff from his upcoming solo album over on ss.org. I'm not the biggest fan of either band (though the new Obscura album is pretty cool), so I wasn't expecting to be too keen on it. I was wrong. It actually kicks ass. :metal...

    I'm considering updating the nut on my Walnut Strat to go along with the new Graph Tech String Saver Classic Strat Saddles and Strat Tele Roller Guitar String Guides I ordered. The bridge is a standard style Strat tremelo. I've had a graphite nut on my other Strat for 25+ years and it's fine...

    Just stumbled across this. I hope this means Guthrie is working on a new CD. If this track is any indication I'll be all over it. :drool: I can just imagine the soloing madness that Guthrie will lay over this.

    THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN have posted the following update: "Ben Weinman has been holed up like a mad scientist blasting out the furious DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN insanity that will eventually find it's way onto our next release. When Ben says that the stuff he's been writing has actually been...
