  1. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    Hi folks, I'm new to this forum. I'm thinking of buying an ESP vintage plus (alder/rosewood) for christmas. I'm big fan of that distressed/relic strat look. I'm thinking of using it as my rock/metal guitar, so maybe I'll ditch the stock duncan SSL-1, and use something hotter. So here's the...

    Yesterday, I purchased my new Mac Mini and knew it came with an HDMI to DVI adapter. What I DIDN'T know, was that the.DVI portion is 24-pin and the one my monitor uses is only 15. I searched high and lo to find either a 15/24 male l/male DVI cable but they dont make one it seems; nor could I...
  3. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    So, I'm putting together another small rig & the preamp will most likely be an Engl E530 for the preamp. I tried the Engl running into 1 side of a Mesa 20/20. Very nice indeed. So...... What else is out there in terms of a 1-space tube poweramp? 2-space hasn't been ruled out, but I'd prefer...

    Last Friday I walked into the GC in San Francisco and jammed on an LTD EC-407 for about an hour to an hour and a half, and it was a really solid guitar; however, I've come to not get along with the LP shape sans the PRS Akerfeldt singlecut model, due to the way they cut into your forearm after a...

    I am not a bass player but I'm looking to upgrade my current crap bass guitar which I use for recording to something decent. I never really had any experience with bass guitars, the best thing I've played is a 4 string 90's SR. I need a 5 stringer and I've been looking at what Ibanez has to...

    Hey guys, I've been updating my little recording rig here recently (updated for me at least), and I'm wondering about firewire interfaces. This will be my first venture into the world of firewire and there are a lot of pros/cons with all of them. I don't need much, this isn't a monster studio...

    I need your help guys :) I've recently played the Schecter V7, the old one with block heel and strat style body. The neck was awesome, a little rounder than my 7321 but still great. My only problem is I'd have to sell my RG550 to fund it and I need to know if the trem in the Schecter is...
