    I've wanted a Blackmachine style guitar for years now but as everyone knows they're rare AF and stupidly expensive.... But I've just seen this Siggery Heresy B6 clone pop up on eBay for a really good price. What's the deal with these guitars? I've heard good and bad things, it looks pretty...

    We have a D-link DIR615 router for a townhouse right now. After the umpteenth time of nearly hitting our limit on our internet package, I've upgraded to more than 2x the speed and unlimited bandwidth. The service update will be done next week once the new modem arrives. My question is, since I...

    My main rig for the past few years was mainly playing my 6505mh and using the celestion v30 speakers i put into my bugera combo. Ive been wanting to change this up as of late since playing speakers on a combo is of an open back design etc... Dude on facebook posted a Carvin Legacy 4x12 slant...

    I saw a Line 6 DL4 for sale online today for next to nothing. He said that he was having trouble getting it to turn on and that he took it apart and did something to get it to turn but not stay on....maybe power source problems. Without knowing a whole lot about what's wrong with it do you think...

    I picked up this hellraiser in a trade deal but I haven't really meshed with it and its in need of some repairs. I've been trying to sell it for 350$ on craiglist and reverb but its not moved in the past few months so I'm kind of giving up on that route. I think its a pretty good guitar, I...
  6. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    I kind of like the idea of have my own handwound pickups but am afraid they wont sound good. Can they be made for metal or are they only going to put out mellow tones?
  7. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Looking to kill the noise from my trem springs in my 7s. I tried foam but can still hear some ring from them. I was wondering if anyone uses the Floyd noiseless springs and if they work. Also which should I get the regular, heavy duty or mix of both? I use different tuning for each B, A, Drop A etc.
  8. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Seen some conflicting opinions so I wanted to sort it out...I've come across some pretty killer deals on S2 PRS's, and curious whether it's worth the jump/upgrade from the SE's? My current SE's are all great, I just wanted to know if the S2's are all that and then some.

    Model Packs - Software (Price updated in cart) Mainly looking at the Metal pack for the 5150 model. Has anyone tried them? Is it worth $35?
  10. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    'Ello. I'm looking into replacing the V7/V8 set on my RGD as I find them a bit too muddy. It's a really nice guitar and I'd like something really good to do it justice. Looking for a lot of power but also clarity and versatility because although I play a lot of PHAT riffs, some do involve full...

    There's a guy selling one of these locally and I'm having some trouble figuring out the value and more information on the guitar. I think it's US built and koa (or mahogany?) but I can't confirm that-were there any imports with similar specs? There's an almost identical guitar on ebay right...

    So I'm currently living/working overseas in Kuwait ("home" is east coast USA). I've been over in this region for the past 3 years and I've finally gotten to a spot where I've moved my wife over with me and we're settled in to officially make this a long-term deal. Through this time, I've been...

    VFE had a baby sale start this last week (his wife is just about due). So I was able to pick up this other version of the Ice Scream that I didn't have. Now this is hands down the best overdrive pedal I've ever used. It is incredible for boosting. The pink one is a higher gain version, and I...

    Picked this up a few weeks ago from jacksonplayer. I'd been lusting after it since he brought it over a few months ago, and he was thinning the heard after buying an SG and a Les Paul back to back. This one has the same 60s neck as my Studio, which is in between the 60s slim taper and...
  15. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    This was hanging up in a local music store. Listed as a JS-32, but the inline reverse headstock and the frosted knobs leads me to believe it's a Dinky-7 (I don't remember the exact model number on those...?). Price on the tag is $199, so I'm curious if it's worth it and/or if anybody else would...

    still trying to figure what to get for a fixed bridge fiddle and saw these. a bit more than the LTD's but considerably less than the usual Eclipse but still made in japan? what's the deal with these this would be right up my alley (a little more than I originally wanted to spend but may be worth...

    Axe-Fx II Firmware 19.00 Released If you use drive blocks in front of your amp sims, you need this update. I had to tweak some parameters after the update, but it's worth it. The drives do a better job of seasoning the amp sound now rather than overwhelming it.

    Well I picked the Eden WT550. There was a rep there who helped demo it for me. Definitely more of a classic sound than a modern sound. Lots of options to play with as far as EQ goes. This weekend I am taking it over to a friends place who is a long time bass player so we can put it through...

    My Ibanez soundtank delay pedal just doesn't have the versatility I want. I think I've fiddled with it about all I can. I want one that can do the short repeat and the timed out delays for that big hairspray sound. Most delay pedals I find break the bank and maybe I should just give up, but...

    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.
