    Spinning this off from whichever trainwreck of ours this started from... So, I like pizza. I like making it, and I think if you're going to make it, you pretty much need to make your own dough. It takes some foresight and while it can be done by hand a decent stand mixer certainly makes it...
  2. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    Why you ask? Problem: I have a gig this weekend in Portland and I have a computer in my rig. The shortest rack mountable case I could find some time ago is quite long for standard racks. That and try hooking all that shit up in the dark at a gig. Not fun. Exhibit A :ugh: : So, my solution...
  3. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Decided to start looking for an RG550 on Craigslist recently... So there I am, doing my due diligence... What the fuck? $150 for an 89 RG570? :scream2: Email commences immediately Get the call, it's actually $150! :eek: Grabbed my keys Spotted my car Fired up some Kataklysm...
  4. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    This was meant to be a looong article to highlight the typical problems and solutions that pop up in refrets, accompanied by a bunch of drawings and such things showing how wood movement effects necks, and a bunch of stuff about frets. Not a how-to, but more an educational thing. I've never said...
  5. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    I saw this little guy and thought it would be perfect for my Telecaster. For those who haven't seen one before, it's an output jack that is bowl shaped. It also screws in at an angle with two small screws; that way it virtually never loosens. So, for those of us that have a hard time finding...

    I'll be starting with the actual picstory as of tomorrow when i get home from work :lol: And there needs to be 3 youtube video's aswell so i guess i'll have those done next week at some point once i figure out how to shoot them (webcam/phone most likely). The band: Now it's off to bed...
  7. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    Part of my kitchen-to-bathroom renovation project involved re-framing the floor to accomodate the new plumbing. The tricky part about that was there was no access to the floor framing from below, so, I had to remove the flooring. Good thing I did because one of the joists was split right in...

    New Elq Hand Me Down Day! :woohoo: Thanks to Elq's unquenchable need to buy newer, more expensive guitars, I have taken possession of his Carvin DC727. No need to buy a guitar off the shelf (Not like I could if I wanted to anyway), when I can take advantage of Elq's one in, one out lefty sale...
  9. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    After the single coil making effort a while back Soopahmahn took a fancy toward a humbucker size variation of a Strat style pickup, which I agreed to make happen. Initially I'd intended to make a silly thread of the making process, potentially involving cat litter and a vegetable garden...
  10. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    So I'm getting my intonation and string stretching on.. And snapped that factory high e after very little provocation :mad: Well, I can't have a brand new guitar with a missing string. Especially when I'm still in that honeymoon phase with it. Time to grab the keys and head down to Sam...
  11. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Today was the thing. Had some time so I decided to try my hand at putting the guitar skin on the 7620 I just bought. Apologies for this not being the most comprehensive picstory on how to do this, but: 1. I've not tried this or anything like it before, so I'm certainly not an expert 2. It takes...
  12. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Ok, quite a bit of stuff here so we're just gonna jump right in. Bought an RG2228 from Canada Kevin (aka 'Professor Squidbeard', aka 'Cancer666') from MG Classifieds. Same night ordered; 3 sets from JustStrings, Line6 HD500 and DiMarzio Cliplock from MF, and 8' of the largest fretwire I've...
  13. Music: Recording Studio
    "Recording is easy, right Chris?" Yes, yes it is. Getting awesome, shredly tone at home is as simple as plugging in your guitar, buying a bunch of really expensive shit, and then twisting a few knobs. Let's have a quick tour of the knobs that I have to think about when I record something...
  14. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    I've wanted to build another cherry guitar for a while now, so, on the most recent trip to the lumber yard I picked up a medium figure board that had a good ringing sound and started the planning. I wanted to try a different body style; something a little more comfortable/ergonomic. My...

  16. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    I picked up an Ibanez RG7620BK yesterday & thought to my self, "Self? How can I fuck up a perfectly good guitar?" So, I called up my partner-in-crime (and booty call) & here's the start of something magiKILL! :kd: One guitar.... A bagful of Lee-approved fr00tiness... ...and these fucks...
  17. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    It was over a year ago when my best friend told me about this pear tree in his back yard. Tall, feeble, painfully arching and giving way under its own weight, the umbrella which provided shade from the sun and rain was now only a wire frame with a few fabric remnants still intact. Decades of...

  20. Sports Talk
    It all starts with a beer, and a plan. Then you need some clubs: And to UNLEASH THE FUCKING FURY. :scream2: And a little patience. Here's my buddy Tony. Being patient. Why is he being patient, you ask? This leads to the occasional poor sportsmanship. :idea: But with the help of...
