    NGD: It's Mirage Monday, yo!

    As I may have eluded in another post: This piece has been tucked away for a month, now. I got fed up with repeatedly trying to talk myself into cracking open the box, day after day. Or in other words, I finally suceeded/caved in. Wooh, finally cleared THAT dillema outta my mind. What a...

    Is a neck-through guitar sitting sideways in a box gonna damage the neck?

    I got a new fiddle-jammer 2 weeks ago, and STILL haven’t opened it up. Pretty sure it didn’t include a case. I assume it just shipped in the manufacturer box, within the outter shipping box. It’s been sitting on the floor horizontally, w the headstock pointing at the wall. Today, I was just...

    NGD LTD Jeff Ling JL-600

    I’ve been obsessed with the M shape featuring a hard tail for a while now. I attempted to talk myself into the M 1000 HT several times. I love the spec sheet on that one. Unfortunately...it's pimped out with the black poplar fade. Gonna have to pass, too rich for my blood. Enter the JL 600...

    NGD EII (more like unboxing)

    Last week I FINALLY got my hands on my first EII. This one's been on my gear bucket list since 2020. Ive had several LTD’s, and had pretty good experiences. So I was really excited about upgrading to this one. When I unboxed it and opened the case, the top of the guitar brought a smile to my...

    Are the pre-2015 Schecter C1 Blackjack and SLS the same guitar?

    Been GASing for a good ol workhorse Schecter C1 with the SLS neck profile. Also, fixed bridge is mandatory. My budget is $600 max, preferably $500. So I’m looking for the pre-2015 models. Does anybody know if the early 2010’s/pre-2015 Schecter C1 Blackjack and SLS are the same guitar? Or if the...

    Recording tube amp with stereo pedal (without load box)?

    I have a TC Flashback in the fx loop of my Marshall JVM, and recently decided to see what happens when you hook up the stereo out of the TC to a recording setup. To clarify, I have the amp hooked up to a cab like normal, and I’m just jamming live style. The whole time, Im simultaneously...

    Ibanez Prestige RG652FX vs Genesis RG521

    So, the Ibanez RG652FX has been on my long time GAS list . Recently I discovered a few listings on Ebay/Reverb, and made some offers…no luck. Currently, the asking prices are beyond what would be considered “bang for the buck.” Then I stumbled upon the Genesis RG521. Theres a few of those...

    ESP EII Eclipse v LTD EC 1000 neck feel

    Back in the day I owned an LTD WA 600, and EC 1000. Naturally, I sold them and went with other gear. I learned after the fact, of course, that I preferred LTD neck shapes. I'm missing them super hard right about now. The GAS is strong, and I'm lurking on Reverb, as usual. We all know, it do be...

    Ernie Ball JP6 vs E-II M-I/M-II

    The EBMM JP6 just made the nomination for my next superstrat. Theres a couple questions I'm hoping to get answered by anyone who happens to have experience with either of these guitars. 1. I'm assuming the JP6 has a floating trem that doesnt appear to be double locking. Is it possible to tune...

    Hard tail ESP E-II M-II NT in simple colors?

    Ive been GAS'ing hard for an ESP E-II M-II NT https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/EIIMIINTHSBNF--esp-e-ii-m-ii-nt-black-natural-fade. The specs on that guitar are pretty much perfect as far as I'm concerned. Problem is, I detest both the finishes available on that guitar, and I don't like...

    Upgrading from Line 6 UX2 for better mic'ed guitar tones

    Ive been using a Line 6 UX2 for years now to record di guitars and bass with sims. Recently, I tried using it a few times to mic up my amp with a single Shure SM57. I ended up with ok results. My mic techniques are a work in progress. Still, Im curious about upgrading my interface to make the...

    My thoughts on the Friedman BE100

    Unpopular opinion: I'm not totally floored by what the Friedman BE100 has to offer. I have a 2016 model that I bought new. The entire 3 yrs Ive owned it, I've only jammed it under a dozen times. Also, Ive only played with the master volume at 1. Last night I decided to try the fx loop trick...
