    Me Before buying a 26.5" scale length guitar: :flex: I got dis Me after practicing scales on one for an hour: mommy help. I have been struggling with my new extended range fiddle a bit. Everything is slightly off just enough that it is messing with my muscle memory. I actually had to...

    Looking to buy my first 7 string and noticed a couple I was interested in had a 25.5” scale length. I thought this was a standard scale length, didn’t think it was considered extended scale. Looking to get a 7 that would be used for B standard and maybe drop A. Will the 25.5” scale work well for...
  3. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Hi all, I'm looking to get back into electric guitar specifically for metal and have found over the last 30 years that I prefer shorter scale instruments but not too narrow of a neck. I was wondering if anyone could please post recommendations of guitars that are 24.75" to 25" scale length with...

    Hardware and pickguard will probably be swapped out to black with time, but it looks good in it's basic form. I like that it has a matched headstock! Maybe would look awesome with a white pickguard?! The 35" is REALLY appealing. The Jackson felt nice, despite the terribly buzzing 1st fret. So I...

    I'll try and keep this short, but it requires a little explaining... Acquired new guitar. It's short scale. I want to start using D standard/drop C for my own music, but still require Eb/drop C# guitars for my covers band. Gig regularly so separate guitars are needed for all tunings, can't be...

    I know there are plenty of short scale superstrats, but I'm talking about more classic guitars; Flying V's and Explorers etc. I don't get why the 25.5"+ market gets the choice most of the time, but the LP/Flying V/Explorer market are firmly established in TOM country. I mean, if I were to...

    I haven't owned a short scale guitar for any great period of time for a long time now, and since getting that Les Paul the other day, I want to put some strings on it that will match my 25.5" guitars. My 'standard' that I base everything around is a D'Addario 10-46 set in Eb standard. That's...

    Musickraft makes necks and bodies as standard items. Crooks also emailed them and they'll do 24 3/4" scale 7 string conversion necks, too. So a 7 with a topmount Floyd is in my future.

    So I saw this comment on youtube (about tonewood and shit): (let's keep this thread free of tonewood debate, we all know some of us believe it, and some don't, and nobody wants to be convinced the other way :roll2: ... This thread is for scale length only) Gasolinechlorine: Actually, you...
  12. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Hi guys, I am currently studying theory by myself (which can get pretty frustrating) and I was wondering about the different modes of the major scale. For instance, I read somewhere the Phrygian is minor (even though it's a mode of the major scale) but depending on the key it might become major...

    I swapped pickups on a friends Les Paul today, and when I was finished and tried out the EMG 89 I instantly recognized that sound. I fucking love neck pickup sound on Les Pauls and similar! I remember having Paf Pro in some Les Paul copy that sounded absolutely amazing, so after I sold it I got...

  15. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    So I'm in the market for a 30 scale 6 string tuned for sub octave. I'll be using it for the subtle overdubs, the odd bass session where I need for tic-tacs or that Jack Bruce sound, or whatever inspriation hits. I'm not planning to spend over 1 grand AUD either. Right now it's narrowed to...

    Hey, hi guys :metal: So, I'm about to get a new custom 7 strings and I was thinking about going for a 27" 24 frets this time. But, as I was browsing Ibanez website I bumped into this: Electric Guitars RG - RGIB6 Iron Label | Ibanez guitars So, I was thinking about what would it be like to...
  20. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    I'm learning some stuff in metal rhythm that is tuned to drop c#. My guitar is an Epiphone Les Paul with a 24" scale. My strings are DR 10-46's and have noticed that the guitar still sounds a little flabby with this tuning. I really like the drop c# tuning and want to stick with it. Correct me...
