    Your reason/justification for owning more guitars? Help!

    I pretty much either play in standard or drop the lowest string but I have several guitars because they all do something different. One has a trem, the other a piezo, Humbucker, single coils, actives, passives, different woods, etc Basically I went the multiple guitars for specific uses instead...

    How do you afford guitars from custom shops and high end instruments?

    I'm in the military, so I'm definitely not rich I tend to not really spend money on things that aren't food, fuel, or bills too often, and I live well below my means so I normally have a fair amount savings that every now and then I'll use a little of for a guitar.

    LTD MH-400B - EMGs: keep or replace?

    Honestly a lot of people have other preferences but EMG 81 and 85 are solid pick ups They sound clear, have a fairly flat EQ curve, and depending on what you like the standard EMGs are a little compressed so that can be a benefit. I Prefer the X series by emg because they're less compressed...

    To BOOST or not to BOOST?

    I absolutely love using a clean boost/preamp/EQ pedal Infront of my amp to help tighten things up and give the perception of more gain. So something like a Pepers Pedals dirty tree, Fortin Blade, Boss 10 band EQ. But I generally do not like putting overdrives in front of an amp because they...

    Nolly signature "Polymath" BKPs

    More pickup options is always a good thing, but no single pickup is worth paying that price in my opinion

    Amps that sound good....when someone else is playing it?

    So this is a thing, apparently.

    Like a lot of people have said not a fan of his but I like this guitar. My only complaint is the 5 black lines under the strings.

    (your opinion needed) Optimum Scale Length for Low F#

    I voted 28, but I honestly think that this is very player specific. I personally use a 9-80 set on both my 8s (one is 27.5" the other is 28") and it works great for me.

    Will a .090 fit through a string through on an 8 string with a hipshot?

    I can tell you that a hipshot will take a .090 with no issue (I use one on my 8) but like max said the body might not be able to without a little drilling first. I didn't need too with my DC800 but I have no idea if your SC model will. If memory serves right steph uses a really light guage so...
