  1. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Looking for suggestions on guitars that have a Floyd Rose and a thicker neck. I really prefer my Gibson necks over anything else, but it seems to be quite difficult to find something with a similar neck profile that also has an FR on it, while being under $1k. I've looked at the FRX systems...

    I finally got around to removing the last vestiges of the crappy Jackson electronics in my Soloist Jr., replacing the neck pickup with a Duncan Hot Rails neck model that I happened to have laying around in my parts bin. I'd bought it brand new years ago for a project I can't even remember, so it...

    Around min 27 +/- 7 string on the video but Ola said Solar is announcing them today (maybe more models?)

    We all like to learn from our mistakes, but it's more convenient to learn from others' so here you go :lol: I plugged and redrilled the holes on the neck for my current Falchion project, did a test fit with the screws and then came the hitch... The last one didn't budge at all because I didn't...

    A buddy brought over a Strat body and asked if I could make a neck for it. Looked like a good opportunity to use a blank that I had just cut from a billet of roasted maple and purpleheart. The paint had been laid on pretty thick and had run in a few places so I asked him if he wanted me to try...

    So, I have acquired this fine instrument online, which is a lot of guitar for its price, in my humble opinion. Guess I got lucky, because fretwork is flawless and it sounds huge. It plays fantastic! Anyway, on to the neck profile: I remember trying several Indo Pro Soloist during the past few...

    I guess I am entering my "old man" phase because I never thought I would own a tele, much less a Fender tele. I was sorta wanting to pickup a guitar that wasnt metal, but had humbuckers because I have a series were I go through all the amps in the Axe FX, and using high output pickups for some...

    The recessed Floyd Charvel Model 5/6 obviously has a neck angle. HOW ABOUT THE KAHLER ONES?????????????? Just wondering. If I find one for a good deal I might get one and Evertune the shit out of it , how knows

    HI! Please re-direct me if not in the right forum. Sorry,am a newbie trying to get back into the guitar scene after many years off and looking for hands on help. Long story short,I use to own a 1997 Jackson sl2 that I played thrash/speed metal/soloing within garage bands and small gigs.Since...
  11. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    So, the pickup merry-go-round in my Charvel clearly isn't over. I've settled on the bridge pickup at least (Aldrich). I'm absolutely in love with that again, maybe moreso than the first time I tried it! But the neck pickup... I've had a Duncan Hot Rails in there for a while but it's a bit...

    Backstory: My 89 Kramer focus 6000's frets are REALLY worn. The neck is ok but it needs a re-fret if im going to play it any longer. However, a re-fret is probably like $300 or so? The guitar is a bit beat up and do not want to invest a ton of cash in it but I would at least like it...
  13. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    I've often contemplated having a double-neck axe, and watching Sons of Apollo both live plays + a most interesting vid where Thal explains about his Vigier, I felt wet in some places. Now, I'd like either a double-7 or an 8-string fretted + 6- or 7 fretless, but which neck order? For doing...

    "You can use different sized or shaped frets for different parts of the neck." Guitar Player, a "reputable publication", ran this article. https://www.guitarplayer.com/gear/tech-bench-gary-brawers-refret-checklist Terrible reckless advice? Life hack of the century? Strangely unsubstantiated...

    I'm considering a parts build - a strat, to be precise. Most of the parts/electronics are fairly straight forward. However finishes stump me. Here's my question: if I order a Warmoth body with a urethane finish, will it mate with a nitro neck without any reactions or problems? Thanks guys.

    Seen this on the local offer up for a few weeks now dude wants $200 USD for the body and neck. Not the biggest fan of the color. Thinking about making an offer for a project guitar. Can anybody tell me if this looks like a legit ESP?

    Wanna try going full-blown single coil (as opposed to stacked humbucker) as I really love the contrast, and more or less always split my neck pickup whenever I'm on it anyway :shrug: JB/Aldrich/Distortion (whichever I'm in the mood for at the time, I seem to be cycling these at the moment :lol...

    Anything considered, preferably a funky colour or white. No cream. I hate cream. Show me what you've got!

    Just saw this on SS.org and wanted to share it mainly to read the reactions on the conclusions :cool: Sustain and Electric Guitar Neck Joint Type :smoking:

    Since switching to L500XL's, I figured I may as well experiment with neck pickups while I'm enjoying the honeymoon period... I've flipped the Bill Lawrence pickup a la Dimebag so it's got slightly less of that boingy single-coil treble going on. He used a bridge 59 in the neck (also flipped, to...
