  1. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    I've seen a lot about the Fluences and there seems to be a few features about them that are quite appealing to me. Anyone installed them or played a set? I've always preferred 81s for my actives although recently I moved over to 57/66 sets because I prefer the more vintage kinda feel. I'm...

    Wouldn't that be fucking sweet?! I googled it and only found a couple of pics, and I guess there's no official Jackson guitars with pickguards. So, I bought this old Jackson Concept from a friend for a couple of bucks: And turned it into this! I did a decent refret and put a new Gotoh Floyd...
  3. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    This was something I noticed over the weekend, for some reason, and have started thinking about - when you play a trill, do you start the trill with a hammer-on or a pull off? For example, if you're trilling on the D string between the open D and a 2nd fret E, do you start the trill by picking...

    Wasn't really thinking of keeping these but decided they'll come in handy now that I've got a drummer in my band. 4x SM57s 2x SM58s 2x Samson C02s Already got a 57 and a 58 so that gives me enough mics to fully do a kit. However I need to get a kick mic so I'm thinking of getting the SM7...

    Long story short, is it worth shielding your cavity? Been considering doing it to my RG, I play with high gain and was thinking maybe it will help get rid of a little of the hiss associated.

    I'm thinking of picking up a guitar cheap because it's got a cracked control cavity top. Doesn't bother me as it's not to bad but one day I may look at repairing it. I was thinking of cutting out the top of the cavity and routing the edge like the control cavity opposite and putting a...

    My very first guitar build i did a flame shape guitar and bought a warmoth neck off a buddy who wasn't using it. brand new. the guitar has been wonderful over the past 12 years, but these days just playing at home, i don't play it much cause the shape just isn't comfortable for sitting and...

    I do enjoy my 8 but I'm just not jiving with the white. I would like to repaint it but what color? Looking for suggestions... It has a white pearloid pickgaurd, I've been thinking black, but I am capable of any color really.

    69 dude! To be precise: Fulltone 69 MkII. In the pile of my recent pedal obsession haul, one of my favorites was the MXR Octavio, which was fuzz that adds a cool octave up effect. Then I realised, I don't have a traditional fuzz pedal yet. I chose the Fulltone because, 1: I don't have a...
  11. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    So lately I've had obscene 5150/6505+ gas, and I figure I could probably find someone that'd trade for my Matrix 2u, I was just curious if anyone's ran the AxeFx through a 6505+, would I be able to run both modeling, and the 6505+ by using the axe in the loop, or would I just get the effects...
  12. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    I love the convenience, reliability, and consistency of my FRFR setup (either an hd500 or axe-fx ultra into an hd1221 or k12) but i'm debating going back to a tube setup. My setup is pretty loud (not as loud as my other guitarists 6505+ and mesa 4x12) but it seems like I am buried every time we...

    I don't gig or plan on using it any type of band situation but think it would be great for home recording. They sound great and I love the lower wattage. Any thoughts?

    Hello guys and gals. I've had my Blackstar HT-5 for about a year now and I love it. However, I believe it is time to move on to something that will best suit my goal. I really want to write and record my own tunes in my own home studio. I bought an Audiobox USB interface and downloaded Reaper...

    I don't buy into hype, but fuck, the nebulous descriptors/packaging used for these make me want them in my '82 Mockingbird, which is mahogany body/mahogany neck through/short scale. I was planning on swapping the old gross super distortion that is in there now for either a Custom/Distortion/81x...
