  1. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    For those who don't remember - NBD thread here And for those who can't be fucked to click the thread, this is what it looked like when I got it... Needless to say, this was converted at some point in its long life. It's a 1986 Charvel 3B. Looks like this as stock: It was upgraded with...
  2. Music: Other Instruments
    So at the beginning of the year I decided I needed a 5 string Precision in my life, I wanted something classic but I wanted to give it a very modern feel, inspired somewhat by the Roger Waters signature Precision but with more black and active soapbars. Since there seems to be two options for...
  3. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    So, this is my first year Ibanez '81 AS-200, and a '94 Japanese Fender Tele. The Ibby is an amazing guitar, just fantastic. The Tele is a Tele :) It had a pearl pickguard on it but my brother (the same one whose Bernese Mountain dog ate my ESP Custom shop Firebird for those of you keeping score)...
  4. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    A couple months ago I got a 2018 Les Paul Signature Player Plus.....came with BurstBucker Pro pickups (I hate them). So I tried what I had on hand: A Duncan Distortion, DiMarzio Super Distortion, Duncan Custom, DiMarzio Air Classic, Duncan JB, Duncan Jazz, Carvin Distortion. BTW, this Les Paul...
  5. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Since I just got a Marshall amp, I needed a Gibson Les Paul! True Story. I needed it. :agreed: Got from Sweetwater.....and went with the available option of getting a TUSQ XL nut installed (added $90). Just because. :yesway: The pickguard assembly (and extra stuff) came in the case, I'm...
  6. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    What's up everyone, I haven't posted here in a couple years (because of some life tragedy bulls***). Anyhow, I just got the DSL40CR from Sweetwater today. After I opened the box (before trying the amp) I took off the back and checked the tube bias - they're at 34, pretty much where everyone (and...

  8. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    So, following up all my previous posts about Detune pedals, Delay pedals and Wah pedals, I found the perfect one of each kind and ordered a custom pedalboard from pedalpad.com to make them easier to use and easier to carry around and set-up. Now, I've always hated using pedals live because I...
  9. Guitars For Sale / Trade / Wanted
    I met this beautiful lady back in '04. She was glistening and gorgeous and new. I just knew I had to have her. I fell in love with her almost instantly. We did everything together. I spent every afternoon after work groping her, playing our favorite songs, or enjoying a movie and eating our...
  10. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    So if you saw my recent asking thread this is no surprise to you, but I recently picked up a Suhr Rasmus Guthrie Govan model and its here! I got this in quite a convoluted trade, and I've been curious about these for a few months now. James was selling his Mark iii to buy universe parts, but...
  11. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    This has been a few weeks in the making, but it's finally done! A while ago I decided I need an Explorer in my life. I deeply regret selling my Thunderhorse, and have wanted to grab another one ever since. Not often having the funds free for a Gibson, I thought I'd bide my time and grab a...
  12. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    Well I got my new angelus and as it was a case queen, the frets were highly tarnished. Figured now would be a perfect time to do another how to. Make sure the fretboard is clean and dry, don't apply any lemon oil before doing the job or else nothing will stick. Firstly, the materials...
  13. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    As I think I mentioned previously, I decided to re-do my rig. It's been a long process with *some* end in sight, but still a ways to go. The Ceriatone OTS I posted a few months back is almost finished (assembled but I'm debugging some gremlins), which will be paired with an oversized ported...

    There was a bit of interest in some of my paint work from my guitar thread so i figured id put a fresh one here. I'm a custom painter full time now, after walking after from my digital arts career of 17 years. If it sits still long enough i pretty much will paint it for ya. The pay is shit and...

    This one is for Jackie. Cannondale Quick 6. She tried a few including a Trek and Specialized at this price point. She really felt most comfortable on the cannondale. Here's a pic of her trying one out. Mostly just trying different sized frames, she liked the med frame the most.
  17. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    If you find yourself with a horrendously rusted bridge, screws, trem, locking nut or most any guitar hardware it can be rebuilt quite easily with the right knowhow and time. I'll be using an original first year Edge trem from an RG550 I'm rebuilding (literally rebuilding, the headstock is off...
  18. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    I was so smitten with my Angelus and always wanted a Dellinger so the moment one popped up on Ebay, I jumped on it. It's a 2005 Dellinger SE HGS and was in remarkably good condition even so far as not having any chips out of the headstock tip. Mahogany body, maple neck and the thickest, BLACKEST...
  19. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    OK, as promised here is my NGD for my first guitar build (and hopefully not the last). I'd been planning this quite a while and bought the woods about a year ago from zack at area51 customs in his closing down blowout sale. it was a single piece of sapele and a bookmatched piece of walnut -...

    I thought this was pretty cool - old highway overpass that connects two sides of a state park. Most of the graffiti is pretty profane, but this was like a motivational poster in the making. :yesway:
