    NGD: Lakland 65-S

    Acquiring this guitar was a saga that started in October. I traded an ESP Eclipse for it. When I got it, the bridge and neck pickups were horribly mismatched so I decided a swap was in order. It now has a Fortitude bridge, Satch Track middle, and PAF 36th neck. Got those installed and went to...

    Four Channel Options

    I currently have a heavily modded Friedman SS-100 but am looking at getting one of the four-channel behemoths to use in a cover band. The heads I'm currently considering are the Revv Generator 120 MkIII, KSR Artemis, or the KSR Colossus. I also considered the VH4 but have never liked any of the...

    NGD: Framus Mayfield

    There’s not a whole of NGDs for Framus because they tend to price themselves out of the market but I was able to pick this NOS 2009 Mayfield Pro from a dealer who has had it hanging since he took delivery in 2009. The Good: - The setup is incredible. Framus was one of the first brands to...

    NAD De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas

    I’ve been using my Friedman SS for the last few weeks and it is incredible. Three months ago, I had a 5150III, Dual Rectifier MW, and an Uberschall TJ. After trading the Uber for the Friedman, I decided most of my gain needs were filled but I was left wanting something super tight and dry, like...

    NAD Friedman SS-100

    I traded my Bogner Ubserchall TJ and Helix Floor for this Friedman SS-100 that was modded by Dave. The system volume was moved to the front panel of the amp. A structure switch was added to the gain channel to give a BE and HBE version of the channel. Apparently, even with the mod, the SS still...

    Dual Rectifier Modifications

    I was in contact with Jens Kruse about modifying my 3-channel, non-MW Dual Rectifier with his standard package. I have since reached out to Nashville Amplifier Service (Todd Sharp) about doing the modifications instead. NAS will be about half the price and they were really excited to have a high...

    Helix 4CM Issue

    I've been trying to troubleshoot a recent issue with my Helix running in 4CM with my Mark V:90. The signal path is utilizing the effects loop of a Boss TAE but I encounter the same issue using the amplifier's effects loop. The problem is channels 1 and 2 function normally but channel 3 squeals...

    Adhesive on Cable

    I use an EVH 5150 III (100w) with a Helix for effects. The 5150 does not support MIDI for changing channels so I use a Voodoo Lab Control Switcher with a custom Voodoo Labs cable running from the switcher to the amp's footswitch input which allows me to change channels on the amplifier with my...

    Advice on PA for Rehearsal/ Gig

    Just looking for advice on a PA system I'm putting together. It'll be used in our rehearsal space (a large basement). Later I'll be adding more speakers to be able to fully provide the PA for weddings/events instead of having to rent equipment. My budget is $2000 for the initial set up. It's...

    Synth VST for Live Performance

    I put together an 80s cover band to do some local bars/ clubs and am needing to source some VSTs for the synth parts. Our keyboard player is a classically trained pianist but doesn't know anything about twiddling knobs on a synth. His signal path is a Nektar Impact LX88+ into my gaming laptop...

    EVH 5150 III Midi

    There's another thread about this from 2013 but it kind of went in another direction so I thought I'd make a fresh one. I just picked up a dead mint EVH 5150 100 watt head with matching 4x12 for $1300. I was in the market for a MIDI controllable head to run a 4CM with my Helix but I couldn't...

    FS BKP Juggernauts and DiMarzio Ionizers

    First up is a set of nickel covered BKP Juggernauts. The bridge has the signature logo and is f-spaced. Note the oddly cut tabs. Otherwise pickups are in perfect condition with some discoloration on the rear of both pickups but it's nothing that could ever be seen when the pickups are mounted...

    VSK Guitars Build

    So a little over a week ago I placed an order for a guitar from VSK Guitars in New York. The guitar will be his OS7 body style with a string over headstock. I wanted to hold off on making a thread until I had some type of picture to offer and today I received a picture of the ash being used for...

    NGD: Surf Green Goodness

    So I traded a Krankenstein cab and 6505MH for a 2007 Jeff Beck Strat. I have been really wanting a sculpted heel Stratocaster for a while and the surf green just made this an offer I couldn't turn down. The cleans on neck and middle are phenomenal and gain with the bridge pickup gives you a...

    Identifying an Older ESP Horizon

    I am in the process of trading for an older ESP Horizon. I have never owned an ESP/LTD because I have always stuck to Ibanez and various American guitars but this is the very first trade that has been offered that interests me. Does anyone have any idea of what to look for to ensure the...

    Kiesel JBV6

    So I was checking Carvin's website to see if the K8H had been made available to order and I stumbled upon this. I wonder if Carvin saw enough orders of the other Jason Becker guitars to warrant a Becker Vader. Anyways... I'm not sure how I feel about it but I'm sure it will rock someone's...

    NGD: Gibson SG Standard

    My first post and a NGD. I have been always been a superstrat kind of guy, but after playing a couple SGs, I knew that I had to have one. I played every SG series for 2014 in a few different finishes. The Standard in Midnight Manhattan was calling my name and I pulled the trigger and ordered one...
