    New FF 8 from Thomann...Hmmm

    https://www.thomannmusic.com/cort_kx508_ms_marina_blueburst.htm Interesting specs, I wonder if the frets are anything special, since it does not note they are nickel or anything. Not a fan of the colors, but certainly interesting at the price.

    Chernobyl on HBO

    Great show (mini series), the Liquidators were true heroes IMO. This should scare the hell out of any ignorant Nuclear advocates, but it won't.

    I knew this would happen.

    OK, so I recently was able to aquire an Axe FX Ultra for a great price of $900 from GC. Got it an everything is working nicely, getting some damn good tones through a Mesa 2:50 into a Mesa 412. But just like a knew it would, it's making me GAS for the newer modelers, thinking I am missing out on...

    RG2228 with standard nut and Gibralter?

    http://www.guitarcenter.com/Used/Ibanez/RG2228-Prestige-Series-8-String-Solid-Body-Electric-Guitar-112356721.gc Something fishy there? Or did early ones not have a locking nut w/ Gibralter? Could it be a fake? Or is it a black RG852? EDIT: Ah, I zoomed in on the headstock, and it's definatley...

    Did they discontinue the RG852?

    I just got one from GC on sale for $1039, and it's no longer listed on the site, like it was literally the last one. I'm curious if they stopped making them after only two years. Is there some sort of problem with them? I have not found any bad reviews. Also, how much better is the eight string...

    Dactivator 8 versus.....?

    Here is my situation. I bought a new Ibanez SIX28FDBG, obviously it comes with Dactivators. In comparison to my Jackson 8 string wiith 808s, it sounds muddy more or less, or at least loose on the bottom end. Now of course these are different guitars, neckthrough versus bolt on, etc.. So I...

    My rack is finally complete....

    Got lucky on a minty Rectifier preamp for $513 shipped (needed fresh tubes though), and now I am in rig heaven. The GSP models are really great, but the tubes are just a bit more responsive and "squishy". The Ampdrive model boosing the preamp is insane, and the GSP gate works flawlessly at...

    So how do you feel about Hula Girls?

    In case you have not witnessed the insanity yet.... https://heatst.com/culture-wars/social-justice-warrior-abuses-her-lyft-driver-over-offensive-hula-girl-bobblehead/ ...I just bought one to put on my dash, and it's actually from the "continent" of Hawaii. I predict Hula girl sales to...

    Finally, I found a THETA pre with the FTSW

    I have always had GAS for a THETA rack preamp. I got one from GC before, but without a FTSW, which is required to use the preamps and loop. Apparently AMS had one sitting around for a while, "not factory sealed". $699 in three payments and all the usual benefits from AMS. I have to go to work...

    GSP1101 vs. Pod HD ProX vs. 11R vs. ???

    OK, been building up a rack rig for the past few weeks. Really want a modeler that I can have fun tweaking around with. I play an RG8 (EMG808x) tuned standard to B on the 7th and G on the 8th. Anything from Deathcore to Djent and Progressive can pop out of my head/hands at any time. I really...

    Nazgul/Sentient versus Blackouts 8 string

    So, I got my Jackson SlATHXSD today... SLATHXSD 3-8 | X Series | Jackson® Guitars ....and despite the marketing, it came with the Nazgul Sentient combo. I called them and let them know (they are owned by Fender BTW), and they are checking into the discrepency. The guy said they would do a swap...
