    If you play any kind of staccato stuff on the guitar, you probably notice a slight HRRRNNNG after the notes. This, in addition to foaming the springs if you have a trem, will help shut that crap up: Go grab some of this foam tubing from Home Depot. You can get like 20 feet for $4. You'll...

    You should probably not do this. Ever. At least, not without someone else in the room, with 911 on standby :lol: Did some work on my tele copy project tonight, took some video :wub:

  11. MG.ORG Status Updates
    Once upon a time I tried to split pickups into their own forum, but lumped wiring in with them. This was a tad confusing, because the tech forum right below it was also about wiring... This has been widely regarded as a bad idea, so it's been changed. The pickup forum is now just for discussing...

    As you guys may have seen in this past thread, I recently scored a black OFR7 on the cheap. The Lo-TRS7 in my Ibanez RG7420BP (dubbed Blackbeard) must be replaced. A lot of you may know that the Original Floyd Rose 7 is a drop-in replacement for quite a few older Ibanez tremolos. One thing that...

    Had a problem where my Decimator started to cut in and out. When I wiggled the Filter Tracking knob, the sound got clearer (not perfect), let it go and it cuts out again. I taped the Filter Tracking knob as far to the left as it would hold, and it worked. I gave it over to an electronics tech...

    I am thinking of trying to do this my self, but is it worth it or should I just spend the money for someone else to do it? I know some benefits would be I could start doing this to my friends guitars and when/if I get good enough start doing it as a side job. What do you guys think? Should I...

    What do they usually charge you? I'm talking things like set-ups, pickup swaps, and other general work, etc. I've never used a tech other than this one cool old dude that Shannon introduced me to who you have to pretty much force money into his hand. Even then, it's only been for stuff that I...

    Anyone own one of these? Tech 21 BSDR SansAmp Bass Driver DI: Musical Instruments I know that Drew has a rack SansAmp DI that he's pretty happy with, but I'd like something a little more compact. The reviews seem relatively positive. Is there something out there in the 200-300...

    Well, this looks bloody awesome... Usually tours in the UK get ruined by putting some bloody awful band on (usually Trigger The Bloodshed) in the middle of some awesome ones, but there isn't a band here who I don't want to see. The only other gig I've been to like that was Evergrey, Amaranthe...
