  1. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    I have had trouble with humming in one of my guitars for a while and now I figured why. The goddamn noiseless springs... should have drawn that conclusion earlier :nuts: Anyway, without having to scrape off the noiseless coating, is there any other way to get the grounding done?
  2. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    I finally got the package from Floyd Rose and oh yeah!!! The push-in arm with Gotoh Floyd-style hex tension screw is fucking brilliant. I have had Original Floyd Rose for 5 years and I've always had to lock the thumbwheel down several times when I play. And with years it has gotten worse and...
  3. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Looking to kill the noise from my trem springs in my 7s. I tried foam but can still hear some ring from them. I was wondering if anyone uses the Floyd noiseless springs and if they work. Also which should I get the regular, heavy duty or mix of both? I use different tuning for each B, A, Drop A etc.

Anything else out there worth noting? I'm trying to avoid actives, since I don't want to deal with a battery in this guitar, hence no SA's.

  7. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    I just got back from GuitarCenter, where I played some pretty nice strat with Noiseless pickups. I thought they sounded pretty good, and as the name claims, they were pretty hum-free, even through a JSX on the ubergain channel :yesway: They wanted $440 for the guitar, and I may consider it...
  8. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    Hey guys, While I don't think I'm a pickup n00b as far as humbuckers are concerned (active - passive - that's about it), I don't know much about single coils and their deviations. Are stacks true single coils, or just humbuckers in disguise? What is the sound like, by comparison? Can single...
