    Rickenbacker 360/12 This is a '90s Rickenbacker 360/12 in Midnight Blue with black trim. Sounds incredible, like a Rick should, with some compression and treble boost. I've done the hard work of setting it up with Elixirs (custom set pieced together from a 12-string set and a 9-46 set) and...

    A good friend and I were working on this mod project. The goal was to spec it out to my liking. The PRS S2 series is a guitar line wherein the body was made alongside their core series stateside but outfitted with overseas electronics and other hardware. Presenting "Darth Paul", a modified PRS...

    I understand that it's probably a pretty good instrument in comparison to other instruments. But from a history standpoint, why did it become as popular as it is today, and why will I never hear a lute, tuba, French horn, or violin solo in a heavy metal song?whatsapp web 192.168.0.1 routerlogin

    I have the possibility to trade my Rectoverb 50 for an Axe standard, power amp, and rack case and i'm seriously tempted in doing so. I've been thinking about going to a digital rig for a while now, to make live setups so much easier and when we spring for an in ear setup, it will make that much...

    From yesterday's wiring fun: The ML's have been my favorite singlecoils for a while now, so I grabbed a set of the V60s figuring I wanted something different for my sunburst Strat, and if the MLs were THAT good, the V60s couldn't be too bad either. I figured I'd do an A/B comparison in my...

    I'm not using her at all, so it's time to let her go. Here's the scoop - it works perfectly fine. It's got a little wear on the outside, including a slightly bent rack tab but nothing major. When I got it shipped to me it wouldn't boot initially but turns out the EEPROM chip was just slightly...

    Hi, My first post here. I'm trying dropping down to B standard tuning and I'm a bit stuck as to which string gauge to use. I play an LTD EC401 and I've just tried Ernie Ball 11-54 which are a bit too loose. Without me wasting more money I don't really have, does anyone play in this tuning...

    I've been wanting to pick up a Les Paul, and was thinking of either the Epiphone Les Paul Standard or the Gibson Les Paul Studio Faded. Obviously one is more affordable than the other, I was just curious if the Gibson was "worth" the extra coin for the upgrades and higher specs, or which one you...

    Surprised nobody over here has posted these yet... Looks like Gibson is doing another run of LP 7s. AMS has several in stock and The Music Zoo has one amber left. Available in Heritage Cherry Sunburst, Trans Amber, and Tobacco Burst New Releases! Gibson USA August Limited Run Guitars! Les...
  13. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Listening to and playing death metal all the time means I rarely play my suhr so recommend me something to learn in E standard that is fun and a bit challenging to play. I've never been a fan of metallica or megadeth so ignore them!

    I'm doing some stuff in D standard, and want to set up my 4-string Soundgear for it, which is a 34" scale. Does anyone have recommendations for strings? I know jack shit about bass string gauges. :lol:

    This is as boring as it gets, a black Les Paul Standard. But I always wanted one, finally had some cash on the side, and found a good deal. I was actually on the hunt for an older "aged white/ivory/creme" (whatever you call it) Les Paul Custom (you know, Randy Rhoads model), actually found a...

    So me and my band play all out songs in B standard, 7 string guitar for me, 6 tuned to B for the other guitarist and a 5 string bass. But it lately I've just been yearning to go back to E standard. Does anyone else ever get this? i was jamming some of my bands tracks on a 6 in E standard and...

    Holy fucking hell. :holy: I mean, I knew the neck and middle were good, but... 1) Now they're through proper 250k volume and tone pots, darkening and smoothing them a hair, and 2) now they have an awesome, awesome, awesome bridge singlecoil to compliment them. Thick, powerful, and clear...
  18. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Anyone else pick any of these up? I got a free set from the promotional giveaway they had a couple days ago and strung my Rhoads up with them today. To me they seem like the standard bright ass strings that D'Addario puts out, not that that's a bad thing though. Supposedly they're a higher...

    I bought a set of these for my Nomad (to replace 6CA7's) while shopping for JJ E34L's, and decided to toss them into the Stiletto to get a good comparison between the TungSol EL34B's that were in there. Comparatively, I actually found them to be stunningly similar. As in, it just felt the...
