  1. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    I just picked up a Jackson Pro Dinky hardtail on clearance and I love it to pieces. The only issue is buzzing and humming on a few of the pickup wiring options. The noise is on the 2-3-4 positions. It's similar to single-coil noise, but I've got an Ibanez RG with similar wiring options (I...

    Hey guys - I've been playing the gold top a lot, lately. One thing I've noticed is that the higher the gain on the amp / the louder I'm playing, the more my G-string (get that picture out of your head) seems to ring out and want to feed back. I can do a gentle vibrato on that string - after...

    So I'm not a big fan of the ZR in my S - I just don't like the feel, and only having 2 springs is annoying at best. Do you think it's feasible to replace it with a normal knife edge trem (Edge Lo Pro/FR Pro) + claw?
  5. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Today I had the volume cutting a lot on both channels of the ROV. I've had the amp probably a little over a year I think, casually use. I popped in new tubes, and voila; sounds great again, and loud as hell. Is it normal to go through power tubes this quick? I don't remember swapping them on...

    Hey, My main concern is TONE, Where I live right now I only have access to try and buy the Orange PPC412 COMPACT, and I don't have access for the full version. Keep in mind that I am aware that the only difference is Weight & Speaker Cones (Celestion 30's VS Celestion Design). Has anyone...
  7. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    I know 250k is the preferred value for singlecoils, but is there any reason you can't use 500k? What are the likely effects, slightly more open high end? If it's a really bad idea, is it possible to wire a guitar with extra resistors in line between the pickup and the pots to replicate the...

  9. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    I've been toying with how much gain I'm using, and the height of my pickups to try to achieve a happy balance, but it seems like I'm fighting a losing battle here. I thought that passives sounded best when they were farther from the strings, and EMG's basically needed to touching the...

    I have a Cort M520 which I really love. I've exchanged the brigde pickup for a Duncan Custom (TB-5) so now it sounds amazing as well. I measured the string distance to 52 mm and opted for a trembucker (F-spaced), but once in the guitar the pickup is a bit too wide for the pickup ring and the...
  11. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    A couple of nights ago I restrung my Yamaha 26.25" 6er with 10-52 gauge strings, tuned it up to D standard (from the original Bb) and took the action right down. I knew it would be pretty cool, as it's a great guitar, but it's really blown me away quite how well it's worked. I was able to get...
