    BK C-Nailbombs in a Les Paul

    I traded for a LP Studio a few months ago. Loved playing it acoustically, not so much plugged in. It had the 490 set, so it was really woofy on the neck, and an ice pick on the bridge (much like my 62 LP/SG with the original PAFs). Just dropped a set of ceramic Nailbombs in, and holy shit… I’m...

    Carvin piezo saddles/preamp

    I have a DC127 with the piezo bridge and preamp. I don't use the piezo, and leave the treble boost/cut in the detent. If I replace the preamp with a passive volume and tone, is it going to change the tone of the pickups? I know everything affects everything, but I really dislike having two dozen...

    New headless build, all of your bizarre ideas welcome

    I have one of those EART headless Strandberg copies from Amazon. Bought it from a guy locally for like $200, has useable but not great hardware and pickups, a body that seemed mysteriously light, and a fantastic 5 piece neck, stainless frets, and working truss rod. Skip this next paragraph if...

    Headless hardware

    I have a Legator Ghost 6. Bought it used a few years ago, don't know the year, but I like the guitar a lot. For those unfamiliar, the setup is like Strandberg, ball end of the string at the bridge, clamps at the nut. The stock nut clamp stripped out (previous owner had some 'interesting'...

    B on a 6

    I love my 7 and 8 string, but there's just something about stringing up a regular scale guitar 13-56 and tuning down to B. Maybe it's nostalgia for all the pre-baritone & optimized strings death metal bands I grew up with, maybe it's the slightly wonky intonation (which is nowhere near as bad as...

    Neural DSP: Gojira for live tone

    Just bought a Macbook Pro M1, hooked up my iRig HD2, and downloaded the Neural Gojira trial. First off, sweet baby Jeebus, this plugin is sweet. I got some great tones out of AmpliTube iOS with the iRig, but this is plug and play awesomeness. Two questions: Connected to a power amp and cabinet...

    Pickup/string indecision

    On a 6 string, I can use 10-52 string, most any bridge pickup that's hotter than a PAF and get a tone/feel I love. Something around 10-50 on a 7, same type of pickup, and I'm good. I can't settle on a string gauge for my 8 string to save my life, and I bet I've swapped the Abasi Fluences and EMG...

    JP'd my RG

    A few months ago, I picked up a first gen JP-6. Within 5 seconds, I was in love with the scooped out forearm contour. Also have an RG 7 string mutt, with a 7621 neck and old 7321 body. A few years ago, I sanded the finish off the top and stained it a dark walnut. Decided to copy the JP's forearm...

    NGD: MIM Strat (pickup recommendation)

    For the first time ever, I got a guitar for Xmas. Never mind that I picked it out and bought it a month ago, didn’t get it until today. Anyway, it’s a 2012 MIM. Stock everything, except maybe the pickguard. Has a fairly chunky neck, plays great. I’m kicking around ideas for new pickups. I...

    Mark V:25

    Have a trade lined up for the weekend which will get me a Mesa Mark V:25. Next is sell more stuff and get a cabinet. Is there something I should go for rather than the 2x12 Recto?

    Recommend me a BKP

    I've never tried Bare Knuckle Pickups, and it's time to change that. The guitar in question is a PRS CE24, early 2000's, mahogany body, bolt on maple neck, vibrato bridge. It currently has a DiMarzio Norton/Air Classic set, which I don't dislike. I'd like a little more aggression than the...
