    Hole on the side of pickup covers

    "open pore pickups allow them to breathe and resonate more, producing exceptional string separation and clarity even under modern high gain."

    Double NGD, something old and something new

    I sold my J Custom and wanted to fill some gaps in my "collection". Ill start with the best deal i think ive ever gotten on a gear purchase: an MIJ Jackson So-Cal, for $1k. Listed as used, but is 99% Mint. It must have been a B stock or something, you can see the damage behind the nut, and the...

    PSA: Reverb raising payment processing fees to 3.19%

    a friend of mine said this to me, it made some sense for sure, although im not as versed in this kind of thing like he is. "Unfortunately, the credit card monopolies have been raising the transaction rates. [...] Many countries have moved to free digital payment schemes where fees are bypassed...

    Best Trem Stopper?

    cheap option: stacked & taped coins, wood blocks, a slide latching door lock, or just keep folding some tape on itself until it fits Expensive option: temol-no and other manufactured stoppers.

    Greetings from NC

    NC here too, yeah the scene is dead imo. Just a bunch of 25+ year olds going to shows when the odd band passes through a "major" city. You'll want to check out Greensboro (there used to be a big scene there) shows, Charlotte, Asheville, and Raleigh. Thats pretty much the only places our kinds of...

    Pretty much decided I’m insane

    heres what fixed that for me, play in a band. When youre not making music, you tend to focus on the things that are tangential to producing music. Otherwise, i was obsessed with writing songs, not collecting gear. If there is a sound in a song you think you need, try to get close with what you...

    J Custom NGD

    I took this in on a trade recently and figured i'd post some about it before i moved it on. Ibanez J Custom RG8520 SDE I really like the switching this has going on, kin to the RGD switching with an added coil tap mini toggle. The middle pickup position, tapped, gives you that squishy/straty...

    Where do you all get your strings?

    i purchase from my local music shop. I dont bother with optomised tensions or any of that sutff, just pick up 4 packs of 9s and move on. I'd recon that a lot of these online string manufactures get their strings the same place that EB, GHS, etc get them. Kind of like most electronics, all same...

    NB(aritone)D: "Why didn't anyone tell me about the ESP Ultratone?" Edition

    Oh man, this is just all the good stuff. Purple is my favorite color AND you got the reverse headstock. Really excellent axe there Dio.

    FS Mayones Regius Gothic 7

    The impressions in the finish are hard to photograph but would be similar to things like button edges being rubbed against the finish, which would create shallow 'grooves' in the finish. Ask any questions!

    Snagged a Modern Suhr

    Here ya go, Well after my band mate got a modern in a trade and let me use it for an entire reherseal, I was smitten with it. I've always wanted to try one but chalked it up to a bucket list type of thing. He traded his off for an EBMM JP15 while I was obsessively searching for a used...
