    The fr00t will be real

    So last year some time I bought an Ibanez EX365 body on a whim because I have a huge boner for HS guitars, and I wanted something sweet and fr00ty (pun kinda intended). Now I'm finally getting to the point of getting the rest of the parts but can't decide on what kind of fr00t to go with as far...

    Anybody gotten work done by Marty Bell somewhat recently?

    I'm looking to send a guitar to him to get refinished and have heard (and seen listed on his site) that his turnaround time is really quick, but was curious to hear first-hand of people's more recent experiences to see if that quick turnaround time was still accurate. Feel free to post pictures...

    Good, versatile guitar between $500 and $1000, what would you pick?

    What the title says. I want to finally upgrade from my Douglas Telecaster after many years, and am looking for something in that price range. I'm very interested in the PRS Mark Holcomb SE, but it's not currently in stock at Sweetwater and I'm waiting to hear back on if financing can still be...

    NGD: Neptune Swirl Strat

    Well, kind of NGD. :lol: This was one of my first guitars, a (what seems to be) brandless, "Grand Prix" Strat. I've just never actually officially shared it like this on the forum. It all started a couple years ago when I disassembled it with plans to refinish it, but didn't get around to...

    Project Strat, the Re-Projecting: This Time in Space

    After far too long, I've decided to start progressing on what started with this thread from a while back. I have the idea in my head that eventually I'm gonna own a gas giants collection of guitars, with each one being swirled like a different gas giant. This plan started after I some...

    NBD: Gettin' the Grind on

    Pictures first: So lately I've been shopping a bit for a bass. Decided to stop in to my local guitar shop the other day to see if they had anything good, and I walk in to the bass room to see this on the wall. As it caught my attention, I immediately went to play it and it plays nicely...

    Double Acoustic NGD (one guitar, one not so much)

    So this is super belated, but this semester's been busy and has prevented me from sharing some goodies I got this Christmas. First up is a Yamaha FG700S. The case it came in is very nice IMO, and came with a nice clip-on tuner, some picks, a strap, and a capo. :) But what's inside...

    Triggering sample from MIDI-triggered audio? (Reaper)

    So I feel that the title may have been redundant sounding and hopefully this makes sense, but what I want to do right now is this: I currently have a "Drums" track set up in Reaper, where I have my MIDI track of the drum part. The drums track has had its I/O changed to where each individual...

    So now that we're entering the summer months, and it's been a bit stormy here, it's got me thinking about power surges causing damage to electronic equipment. So does anyone here use a power conditioner in their home studio setup and have some recommendations for one? Preferably not terribly...
