    NPD! Lil Fella & Remedy Fuzz

    I don't know the first thing about fuzz pedals but I could not resist trying these out. Li'l Fella is more like a high gain distortion with a Gate feature that lends it the fuzziness, remedy fuzz is moreso the sound I think of when someone says fuzz, it's big and gated and gets near square wave...

    Neck Shape and Comfort

    I've been starting to play my 7 a lot more again and I guess im coming to the point in my life where I'm not as flexible anymore, my wrist gets hot and starts to be difficult to play and eventually hurts and I have to just stop. I never have this issue with my sixes or the 8 I built. Just my...

    Fs:LTD ex307, ibby rg32(I think)

    Brief & Accurate Description of gear/guitar:I'm letting go of both my guitars since I don't play them anymore. The ex has a chip which I'll show in the photos later, the Rg is a little faded from age. But they both play and are functional. Strings might be a bit old but that's about the worse...
