  1. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    So now that I built a pedalboard and I re-did the Babs-Cab with fucking sick black hardware, Mesa Track Locks, and four K100s (which are ridiculously expensive, more than V30s, but the best all around speaker Celestion makes) I figured it was time to do a little DiY action on the head to...

    So, this baby came last Monday but given as how I dropped and broke my new cell phone I couldn't take any pics until this past weekend. This is my first Carvin, and I am very impressed. My first observations: the soft-case is really nice. Mine was free, but even at $59 it would be a super...

    Hey guys, I'd really appreciate it if you could give my Walnut Strat a vote. I was first, but someone with a no-name thing from the 60's has overtaken me. The prize is a $50 GC gift card. It's not a huge prize, but it's more than I have now. Here's the link: Genuine Fender Walnut Strat. The...

  10. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    As some of you know, I was planning on doing a Jaguar shaped 7 string, but I've now decided against that. I decided to just do a superstrat that is to my taste. I really like the tone of my Walnut/Maple Carvin 7 so that influenced the wood choices quite a bit. My specs are: 27" scale 24 frets...
  11. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    Hey guys, after being interested in building for a long time I'm finally taking the plunge. After a few ideas I decided it would be really cool to make a 7 string jaguar. So that's what I'm doing! I have some specs in mind, but they aren't all set in stone yet. These are the specs I have planned...

    This guitar was made by Rick Toone, a luthier obsessed with ergonomics in guitars; this is evident by the radically awesome body sytle. Here is a boy shot showing off the H-S-S pickups, tremolo unit, and knobs. :yesway: Darren's Javelin body shape looks like a cousin of this guitar! Huge...
