  1. General Music Discussion
    Been really digging these guys! I actually discovered them while searching for a graphic of Swamp Thing. My wife made me a sweet vinyl Cthulhu sticker for my white SG Warmoth, and I wanted a Swamp Thing one, too. I found a t-shirt on The Black Swamp's bandcamp page, and bought it :lol...
  2. Art, Movies, Books, TV & Media
    I'm not yet convinced but I will watch it anyway since I used to read a lot of Swamp Thing 20+ years ago. Also having been co- created by one of my all favorite Artists (Berni Wrightson) It has a special place in me :)
  3. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    How are Eminence Swamp Thangs for metal? I want to combine with 2 V30's in a 4X12 and hope to thicken and add additional l low end and chunk for palm mutes. Anyone have experience running both V30's and Swamp Thangs? Their sb sensitivity looks close so I am depending on that and a guy feeling...

    Snagged this guy in a trade. Swamp ash body, RG1570 neck. Tone Zone (b), S1 (m), & Air Norton (n) for the pickups. Just got it Monday and have only been able to plug it in for a few minutes, but I'm pretty stoked on it! :metal::yesway:
  5. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Anybody got some experience with these? I'm thinking about trying a new X-pattern in one of my 4x12. I like the thump and loudness of the Celestion mix, but I heard the Eminence mix could do the same with less speaker breakup. What about Celestion G12 65 or Greenbacks?

  7. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    In a CraigsList anomaly, I managed to sell a pair of 16ohm Swamp Thangs for what it cost to pickup a pair of 16ohm Governors, in the same night, in the same city :lol: So far, I vastly prefer the V30's in my Sovtek 4x12. The V30's in my Avatar 2x12 are probably about the same. I was looking...

  9. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    Waiting to hear back from Mai Guitar to send final payment for the custom body. Looking at pickups now and can't really decide. Last time I had a swamp ash guitar was my ESP H207 and used Evolution/Air Norton. Looking for Duncan or Dimarzio suggestions however I may try out an Aldrich if it...

    So, I'm currently building a new fiddle. Kind of a twin brother to Zebra in America. Swamp ash body Hard maple neck Madagascar ebony fretboard 7 string Through a recto I'm wanting the best pickup for a progressive metal tone. Think the tone from Mirror and Lie off of Awake from DT. I love the...

    I just confirmed a project with Daniel. We are going to do a Swamp Ash body, painted white, with an open grained finish. It should be pretty sweet.

    This is from the same board as the RGD style body I posted. It's carved front and back(though near the control cavity I left it flat because of limitations of the input jack placement as well as limitations of my tooling). The body is 5/8" at the edges, 1.8" in the middle. It's set up for a...

    Pics: This body only weighs 3lbs. The swamp ash came from a 13" wide, 2" thick board at my local wood supplier. It's 1.8" thick. The only thing I haven't done is pressed in the ferrules. Will fit an RG7421 or 7621 neck, and I believe the 7321 neck as well, but if you plan on using this...

  19. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    OK, so I've had my U from Hell for a while now, and was digging the DS7 to start of with, but, have the following issues with the sound of it in the guitar: 1) The guitar has a LOT of low end resonance, and I mean a LOT, that overpowers the top end, and the DS7 just doesn't give the top end the...

    Hey guys, new member here, I'm registered on the JP forum/Jemsite/Fractal Audio forum as Andelusion in case anyone recognises that name! I got a Carvin DC727 a while ago, with a swamp ash body, walnut top, maple neck (with walnut stripe) and a birdseye maple fingerboard. I'm thinking about...
