    Engl volume come and go

    That's that. I have an EVH 5153 50w and an Engl Ironball 20w and while I didn't have any problem with the first for 4 years already, the second, which is only 2 years and didn't go out of home started a few months ago to lose volume randomly. I thought it'd probably be something with the effect...

    NGD - Lag Hyvibe 30

    So I was very happy with my acoustic LAG T500 ACE and saw this new Hyvibe thing and instantly fell in love with the wood in the new 30 model. Sold my old one and bought it. I don't play very much lately but the device is funny with loop, bluetooth and whatnot. Here are some pics

    English language native speakers - difference among similar terms

    Hi. A friend of mine is doing a thesis about male vocabulary and stuff and asked me what I think is the difference among masculinity, maleness, manliness, manhood... He feels that masculinity and manliness are synonyms, but maleness includes the biological idea (as the word containes male)...

    NGD - Skervesen Raptor 8 (it's going to be a RAN Crusher buuuut...)

    I finally got this guitar that started being a RAN Crusher until the company collapsed and got me in the middle of the process. This was the original project: Skervesen took the project that were still somewhat profitable as they took some materials from the the deceased RAN warehouse and...

    Happy New Year everybody! A couple of weeks ago I woke up with some pain in my right index finger. I had gone to bed as every night after a bit of practicing a challenging new part and felt all right. In the morning, I noticed the pain when I make the clamp pressure against the thumb. At the...

    what strings to buy for 8 stringer tuned to standard E?

    It comes with this gauge set: The scale is 28'' and it's tuned one step down the whole guitar, I mean EADGCFAD. I like it to be from 15 to 18lbs roughly. Do you know any set fit for this? I don't like how the middle strings are tight as hell while the 8th is like rubber.

    Tips for playing this b*tch?

    I dunno what I do wrong, but after three weeks, I still can't play this or just very dirty. The string changes and speed kill me. My bandmate (the composer) tells me I hit the string too lightly but even my shoulder hurts. I don't know if I should put my forehand in the body of the guitar near...

    My guitar builder claims wood matters A LOT.

    He is also a builder of Violins and Classic/Flamenco guitars with more than 30 years of experience. One day he told me he made the first 7 string ever just before the 90s arrived and earlier he included wood pickups in his guitars. Apparently Fender tried to buy the idea from him, though he...

    Hi, mates I have a 6 string guitar loaded with EMG 81/89. As of late I only play 7 stringers it stayed in its case for more than half a year. The other day I felt like playing it and after I plugged it, the sound started farting, bland, coming and going depending on how strong I hit the...
