  1. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Saw an Ibby RG680CM in deep black 8 months ago, not something I'd see on sale often in my neck of the woods, and I wanted a guitar with Dimarzio Utopias in it (well without buying an actual Pia), so in those came, along with a Mad Hatter Terminator Evo kit, 2 gold knobs and long lockdown delays...

  4. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    I bought my first 7 string back in 1994 with UV77MCs were being blown out for $1400 (which seemed like a lot of money at the time). Back then, if you wanted new strings you had to buy a pack of regular strings and scour the single string bins of the local music store hoping to find as many...

    So i started listening to this band tonight and i am basically stunned. I feel like i've been hearing this band in the back of my head since i was 16. Its like the best parts of Smashing Pumpkins, early Weezer, and a mess of other shoe gaze bands.... This band has clotheslined me in the...

    So this was .... supposed ... to be an entry for the SSO 1 hour competition. The theme was "party" (:ugh:). Now, I decided to do this proper, and it took me more like 2-1/2 hours to do, plus I submitted it about half an hour past the deadline. :lol: So here it is. Keep in mind, I really don't...

    My friends that live on the outside of town hold at least two shows a month, primarily all types of punk. They've had a metal show with great success and some rock shows as well. Through letting bands crash at their place after shows they've developed a huge network of great bands who are...
