Brilliant axe. Incredibly resonant and sounds great. My main/best guitar before this was a Schecter C-1 Classic, which has the same wood/pickup setup other than the neck pickup, and it's so much better than that. It's wild how a nicer guitar just gets out of your way when you play it. The '59 in...
Squire Paranormal Cabronita Baritone
Fender p90-ish pickups
7 and change pounds
Narrow Tall fretwire
neck is nice - frets are level and not jaggy ends
Pickups sound good
Tuners are ok
Nut is cut well
The bridge kinda is meh I may swap it out...
When I was in high school, my dad woke me up early one morning and said he'd been by a yard sale where they were selling two guitars. They turned out to be an Ibanez Iceman II and some Epiphone asymmetric V. Got them both for $150. At the time I really liked the Iceman - I'd only been playing...
This is the only OFR guitar I own so I'm afraid I can't really compare to somerhing to tell if this is normal, but is it typical yo have a little bit of play in the studs in an OFR? I'm 99% sure it's the studs themselves and not the anchors, which seem pretty rock-solid, and it's just that I can...
When I bought both of my new Jacksons they came with a few free lessons from Fender Play. I didn't bother taking advantage of the offer, but my wife was curious. A few weeks ago they ran some deal where you could get all the lessons you wanted for only $45 for a year, so we got her a...
I just found a guy who managed to play at 720bpm after I found another that he did at 1500, I returned to find another who did 2000 after 4000 and finally found a guy who achieved a speed of what seems be 26000bpm, 466 notes per second, I just want to ask one thing, at what speed is really...
Went to the Gilmour guitar exhibit at Christie's in NYC today....holy shit, man. You can literally smell the guitars you're so close to them. I have a bunch more pics but really, there are going to be a ton showing up that will be far better quality than mine.
They had one of his signature...
Love this album, been spinning in a lot these past 5-6 months.
This track always cracks me up though. It's like Floyd Rose hired them for a 4 minute ad. The guitar parts on this record rule, but this is a little too over the top, even for me.
I first experienced this when I was 12 or 13 and it's become one of my biggest pet peeves since then.
You know those guitarist who, not on a stage, but when you're sitting in a room with them and they start playing and stare you right in the face as if they're forcing some kind of connection...
Saw this information today. Testament will be playing both The New Order & The Gathering albums live at a festival show in Los Angeles this December. Also some Celtic Frost content for those inclined. Details.
The actor who plays hodor on Game of Thrones was back stage and got to jam with Megadeth and played Holy Wars.
EDIT: ANDD I screwed up the title RIP.
About a year ago, I tried auditioning for this dumb little "punk" band. The whole thing was an absolute disaster for many reasons, but worst part came at the end, when I was doing a bunch of really big stretches for some reason. The way I'd always played them involved me bending my fretting hand...
