    Have prices gone up?

    A year or so ago, I was looking into getting a Schecter Blackjack SLS C-7 and I remember the price being around $650, and now when I look, they're $899.99. AMS even has it listed at $649.99 when you search, but when you click to the item page, it's back up to $899.99.

    Problem with Boss Loop Station timing

    Is it just me, or is it very difficult to get a perfect loop on these? I have two, an RC-2 and an RC-20XL, and I have the same problem with each. No matter how tight I think I'm playing, my loops come out off-time and it makes it impossible to jam with another person with them. I won't act...

    Buying odd combinations of items

    One night a friend of mine got embarrassed because we stopped at the store, and I bought lotion for a tattoo and he bought energy drinks. When we walked out, he was like 'damn it man, they probably think we're going to have some intense gay sex!' This could be an amusing game. What items do you...

    Are you able to separate an artist from their art?

    This topic seems to have come up a lot recently, with the serious allegations against some members of bands liked by a lot of us on this board. I'm curious to know where everyone stands on the issue. When someone from a band you like does something really shitty or is revealed just to be a bad...

    Need help from a Kemper owner

    My KPA is making a weird noise that I'm convinced is NOT normal. I've been trying to get help on the Kemper forums, but Christoph (the creator) is telling me the noise my KPA is making is not anything out of the ordinary. What I need is for someone to download the profile 'Cobra Crunch' on...

    Problem with line noise

    I was having a noise issue with my Kemper, and had to send it in for repair. It didn't always do it, but when it did, it was so bad I didn't even want to play it. Here's a sample of that: Now that the KPA is out of town, I've had to go back to...

    What's wrong with this picture?

    I saw this at the Sam Ash down the street from my house. Pretty funny, not surprised that they would neglect the 8-strings since the salesmen seem to be especially snobby about any kind of ERG. I've also seen a guitar at Guitar Center with only one pickup screw (loosely) holding a pickup in so...

    Sweet deal on a Horizon NT-II

    ESP Horizon NT-II I want this thing so bad it hurts, but I don't have the cash, nor do I live anywhere near close enough to deal with this guy. I guess we don't have a hot deals thread for standard guitars (:scratch:) but I figured it would be cool if a fellow forum member was able to snatch...

    LTD SC-607B *FEELER*

    Is this guy for real?

    I've seen the "SICK 10 STRING SHRED" videos he's posted, and listened to a little bit of his material. This video came up in my facebook feed last night, though, and it confused me a little bit, because it doesn't look like he's actually playing what you're hearing at some points, especially the...

    How to get that growly super low tone?

    I've been through a few 8 strings, and a 30" 6-string, and haven't been able to nail down that raw Northlane/Bermuda kind of 8-string tone. I'm guessing the bass plays a big role in that thick growly sound, but I want some advice before I buy another guitar for playing that kind of stuff. So...

    Problem with BKP Cold Sweat 7s

    I just had a set of Cold Sweats installed in my SC-607B. The guy who works on my guitars said the pots were fine, so he left them in. I think he said they were 1k pots. I always figured the electronics needed to be changed when going from active to passive, but I trust him, so I didn't argue...

    Noob question about down-tuning a bass

    I've got an Ibanez 6-string bass (SR-506, I think). I think I measured the nut to bridge at 34". Could I reasonably tune this down to G, or should I look at getting a different bass?

    Annoyed at my 8-string

    So last night I decided to pull out my SLS-C8 for fun, since I hadn't played it in a while. The problem is, there wasn't much fun to be had. Every patch I tried it through on my Kemper, it just sounded so dull, and it even felt kind of bad in my left hand. I'm sure a new set of strings could...

    Dog housebreaking relapse

    This one's for anyone that knows about crate training. We adopted a rescue about a week and a half ago. She went to the bathroom in the house a few times the first day, but after that she pretty much got the idea that outside is the place to go. She never had an accident in her crate, which we...
