  1. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Sup guys. My first post here. Gonna keep this short. Intermediate guitarist. I currently own nice Epi LP. Still love playing, just realized i'm not into LPs. Pickups aren't deal breaking, comfort/feel come first. These are the only two guitars i'm considering. Ibanez RG652MPBFX IBANEZ...

    20 years ago on February 20th 1996 Sepultura released: Love it or Hate it changed Sepultura and Metal forever even though they had been doing different things since their previous Album (Chaos A.D). I think this Record also marks the "true birth" of what was later known as Nu Metal. After...
  3. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    Hi there guys, I have a quick question, wondering if someone knows or have a EMG diagram like the one used on Jim Root's guitar? I mean, 2 humbuckers (active) one volume and the 3 switch blade, I have everything from EMG, the 2 pickups, the volume knob, the switch blade and the output jack, but...
  4. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Hi peoples of the interwebs, I'm buying a new guitar soon, and I have a dilemma. I have a set budget for whatever guitar I get, and I have the chance to get a cheap Jim Root Squier Tele. Now I know Squier isn't really the best brand, but it's a sig model, so do you guys think its worth shelling...

    or... part of it, anyway. Jesus.
  6. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Wanted to throw this up, because when I was looking there were literally ZERO reviews of this guitar that weren't from a music store trying to sell me one. I found one right before it should have been delivered, but that was it...so I'm posting this everywhere I can. Pics: Started...

    Someone over at /7/ suggested that this might be coming out as a signature model next year. This looks fucking AWESOME.
  10. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Once again I posted this on SSO, but I seem to get more responses here. So I posted a thread earlier about help finding an amp, and I think I've narrowed it down to two. Once again, your opinion is needed. Before I compare these two, I looked at the 6505+ and JCA amps. I eliminated the JCA...
  11. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    i am debating which one of these guitars to buy, i have played my dads 70s fender strat which was really nice but im not sure how different the neck profile on the jim root tele is compared to the strat (c shape modern c shape all that rubbish), i know its a squier but i just cant afford...
  12. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Has anyone tried one of these. Im interested in all these mini tube heads and an orange flavor would be a nice addition. It sounds great in all the vids i'v seen. But i know its made in china and i have no personal experience with one.
  13. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    I'm completely internet taught, so there are large gaps in my theory knowledge, and I don't have a teacher to ask about my specific misunderstandings, so I'm sorry if this is a novice question. If I were to play an E and an Ab that would be an E major. However, if I were to play the same Ab and...

    I have a Nexus One, and it's got Froyo 2.2 installed, it works great but curiosity is killing me...I'm curious about rooting the phone and installing Cyanogen on the phone, but naturally I'm nervous because this would be my first time and I don't know if I would really gain anything useful from...

    I'm not a big start/Fender fan :ugh: But the guitars look really great, simple - blank fretboards, nice colors :yesway:

    ...AKA: Listen to Angela crap all over the Johann Liiva songs. I was listening to some of these on youtube, and she completely ruins Pilgrim. Production, guitar tone, etc. sounds good. But the vocals... just ruined. :lol: She doesnt even enunciate the words close to the way Johann did...
