  2. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Hi all, I'm new (again) to electric guitar and unfortunately, my wife does not like hearing metal guitar so I'm going to have to spend most of my time playing through headphones and a MacBook. As a plus side, I can do this also in the early morning and evenings without offending neighbors. I'm...

    Hi, I'm pretty new to home recording but a guitarist of over 10 years. For my recordings I'm using DI with VST plugins for tone. My problem is that my tone is heavy but always seems kind of muddy. I do a lot of double picking and gallop type rhythms at 180+ beats per minute and the two pick...

    I'm learning some stuff in metal rhythm that is tuned to drop c#. My guitar is an Epiphone Les Paul with a 24" scale. My strings are DR 10-46's and have noticed that the guitar still sounds a little flabby with this tuning. I really like the drop c# tuning and want to stick with it. Correct me...

  7. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    I am changing pretty much all of the wiring in my guitar, as in, I'm removing all the pickups, the 5 way selector, and only keeping the volume and tone pots. I was wondering, is it ok to use headphone wires? I know they aren't exactly ideal, I just need to know if they work. Thanks.

    I'm working on a Jackson hybrid project, fitting a KV body to a Dinky neck. The joint is ok, there is a very slight gap. However, I'm extremely disappointed because after installing the pickups (Seymour Duncan SH-6 Distortions in both positions), installing the bridge and stringing up the...

    Hello guys. I think this is the beginning of my mid-life crisis lol. Anyway, I'm almost 42 and only picked up the guitar around six months ago. Well, I actually tried years ago, but an ex-wife soon crushed my dreams of learning with her BS. I am however a total noob. I grew up listening to...
