    Any good guitar stores in Stockholm?

    DLX Music on Kungsholmen stocks Fender and Gibson custom shops and some of the finer PRS models. When i visited them a couple of weeks ago they also had a JP Music Man and a Charvel Custom guitar. I think this is the nicest guitar store in Stockholm. Then there is TGT11 as well, they are way...

    What cab should i get for my first tube amp?

    Interesting. I finally pulled the trigger now on a 112 Orange. I realize that's i just need to go for something at this point and try. It feels good however that i did not go for the absolue cheap budget Harley Benton.

    What cab should i get for my first tube amp?

    Sure i'm always having a look on the used market as well. My philosophy has always been to not go for the cheapest alternative, that's why i'm quite skeptical of getting a Harley Benton. However from them i can get a 2x12 for less than what i can get an Orange 1x12 for. Now both of these include...

    What cab should i get for my first tube amp?

    Thank everyone for the input. Right now i'm mostly thorn between if i should aim for a cheaper 212 or a more expensive 112. Currently it's leaning more towards the later alternative, since space also is needs to be taken in to account

    What cab should i get for my first tube amp?

    Okay, so now i spotted a used EVH 1x12 with a Celestion G12H in it. This is a bit more expensive, but it would be really cool with a matching cab to the EVH LBX-S. :cool: I read that this one isn't as bright as the V30, so maybe it could work well to balance out the tone of a 1x12 cab? Anyone...

    What cab should i get for my first tube amp?

    In general, what's the defining characteristic of a 2x12 compared to a 1x12, granted that they use the same speakers?

    What cab should i get for my first tube amp?

    This might be a stupid question, but anyway. A V30 is always a V30 right? So that the Harely Benton is so cheap should be a matter of a compromise in overall build quality and materials over a Marshall with V30's for example? Then comes the question, is the difference in tone very obvious? How...

    What cab should i get for my first tube amp?

    Thanks man. Since they are among the more popular speakers, they seem to be the safest bet so far. Especially when i don't have an opportunity to try them personally before hand. So i just have to go by hearsay. Would you say it's worth going by a 2x12 already to begin with? I understand it's...

    What cab should i get for my first tube amp?

    Hello everyone, I'm about to buy my first tube amp after having only used my Axe FX for years. I've read up on different alternatives within my budget at around $800, and narrowed it down to an EVH 5150 lll LBX-S. While aiming for a volume level suited for home use this seems to be the best...

    First encounter with Dream Theater: Overture 1928

    Just wanted to share a video that i recorded yesterday. For some reason i didn't discover this band until rather recently so this is the first time i play a full John Petrucci/Dream Theater song. Lately i've been listening a hell of a lot to this album. The tone seemed to turn out pretty good. I...

    What is this ESP strat called?

    I see, yeah it should be a fair assumption to compare with the regular Snapper model. And i guess adding half scalloped frets to it might make it closer to even $6000... I might just get a used Fender with similar specs and have it scalloped afterwards. Even though i would prefer it with the...

    What is this ESP strat called?

    Great, here we have it! Does anyone have any idea of how much an order like this roughly would cost? Or how to find out? I dont have an ESP custom dealer in my country.

    What is this ESP strat called?

    Thanks @Ikke ! I really have a thing for ESP strats but these vintage style ones are indeed very hard to find :( The guitar i posted about looks to have a Snapper headstock with a vintage strat body shape. Gotta be a custom order i guess... Here is the video with the guitar in.

    What is this ESP strat called?

    What is this ESP strat model called? I think it's really sexy, gotta love candy apple red and maple boards... Is there anything like this guitar in the current line up of ESP? I would really like to have something like it.

    New ESP Japan Factory Tour

    Premier Guitar posted this video the other day on Youtube. Even though i find the interviewer too loud and interrupting, the video was very interesting to watch so i thought I'd share it. Apparently only 50 people work in their Japan factory and only 4 handle the custom orders. Impressive!

    ESP Custom Club!

    Oh yes. I've always thought that the "1 factory" is specialized in handling orders that are beyond the ordinary in some way, with custom body shapes, inlays, graphics, and whatnot. And that the "2 factory" mostly handles original series and slight custom variations of those guitars. But since...

    ESP Custom Club!

    What's actually the difference between 1 and 2? Both come from the custom shop, are made in the same factory, by the same people...? Of what i've seen, most exhibition series end with 2, and they're like the nicest guitars ESP makes.
