    *IF* you were totally irresponsible, and *IF* you got a stimulus check for $1200 (feel free to play along even if you're not a US citizen), and *IF* you felt totally justified spending every dime of it on gear, what would you get? Tell us, post a pic, give us the why behind the what... I'd...

    Never felt the need to post something like this before on a subject that I figured would be explored to death... but I've decided to get a Jackson Rhoads, but having a hard time picking through the litter. They all seem to be missing one or two details that I want... except for the RR1. Maybe...
  4. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Moving some gear around which will free up (potentially) quite a bit of cash to drop on a guitar. I'm absolutely sick to death of buy-to-try, and at the price point I'm aiming at I'd actually want to spend a day playing guitars in person before making a decision. I'm in Cambridgeshire. There...

    I have an older 1tb Seagate that i use for back ups that works just fine but being it's older it's a bit on the slow side. I've been looking at 2-3tb portables. Being that they are portable and usb powered, would that make them slower then a wired one? It'll be used for more backup but also it's...

    I've got plenty of 6's and two 8's but have been 7-less for 3-4 years now. The 8's are fun and get me by but I really only use them for just messing around on at home. For me they aren't really useful in the real world. Trying to keep it under $1k so I've been looking at the Iron Label series...

    What do you do with this stuff glue it to the wall?:scratch: I'm scared to death to fire this thing up I'm bad enough on a PC, prepare to be tormented to fuck. This is easy I think I can run this. :metal::facemelt::metal:
  8. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Alright, I'm back for more advice... This time, I have $700 credit to spend at a Guitar Center (or will in a couple weeks.) I'm looking at used Ibanez RG. I'm thinking RG570 but fixed... no trem. I'll probably drop some decent pickups in it, that's up in the air. I'd like some feedback on...

    Wirelessly posted Yup, still looking around. Clean single channel (fender bassmam 200, traynor yba, plexi/jcm80) or dual channel. 50W+ is ideal. I have outboard reverb and want an fx loop for clean boost and delay. My short list is the ceriatone two channel plexi for sale near my grandparents...
  10. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    I've discovered a few things.... Theres very little as nice as the top of the range Ibanez or ESP models, they are just superb. played Suhr, Tom Andreson, Musicman - they were all nice, but I honestly liked the J-custom and ESP better. The J-custom at Shibuya Ishibashi was particularly...

    I'm currently shopping for a new six string with a trem around the $500 price range. Specs I'm looking for include: RG-shaped body (or similarly "sharp edged") 25.5" scale Edge Zero II or Floyd Rose (see below for trem questions) Decent pickups (EMG 81/85 combo preferably, but I'm open to...

    The wife has decided on a mac mini, but she's not sure what type of processor to get (and I'm of no help :lol:). Seems to be several options out there… She wants to play games on Steam, run photoshop, but most of all, record/edit videos without hangups/lagging (which she gets all the time on...

    So I guess I'm finally starting a new project guitar. I guess Budda's RG550mxxdy that he's got on the way got to me in a way that I did not anticipate. Besides that, I've wanted to do a project mutt for a while. The pic on ebay has obviously been poorly photoshopped, so we'll see what color...

    Searched all night, and found fucking TWO that I like. I'd originally wanted to get P37RIE, since my last name is Petrie. Completely unavailable. Next I looked for X44 AJP (4th April DOB and initials). Unavailable Apparently you can also only get the car with X or Y, which is no use. So I've...

    Seriously. :mad: Pop-ups (well, blocked ones), flash, fucking shit-tastic forms, and generally all around full of fail. That's every Toyota website I can find. :mad: I'm e-kicking the tires on trading the 'Bimmer in on a truck, since, while I love my car, having storage and not having to...

    Been having a real hard time finding a Wah pedal I like, theres a lot of crap out there. The low end wah's all appear to be shit, none of them have hardwire line-thru(why??) and break easy. Id like something with a lot of features but most the multi-fx type shit out there just sacrifices tone to...
