    High E Slipping on Floyd

    Just bumping this to say I found some insert blocks that were in stock finally. You have to pay more than usual, but if you're wanting to go ahead and fix the issue, it's what you're stuck with until they start making more:

    Q-Tuner Q2.0 Pickups

    Had one years ago and can echo the same sentiments. It had some moments where I enjoyed the hifi clean sound, but I wasn't patient enough to reconfigure all of my equipment around them. I could absolutely see someone who is better at that stuff pull off some absolutely killer tones with them.

    High E Slipping on Floyd

    I'm actually in the same boat as you. My high E string will no longer hold the string in place when I get it up to tension so I'm really needing a replacement. I tried to drop some solder in there, but that didn't work at all.

    Covid 19/Coronavirus

    Neat. New case seems to be someone who is about 5 miles from me. This is apparently a community spread case and not a travel related one. Can't wait to watch the numbers of infected rapidly rise and lots of people with little health care coverage and bosses telling them to come to work even...

    Neural DSP teasing something new (Quad Cortex)

    I get that it's highly unlikely to ever be a problem, I just get leery at putting wifi and connecting everything to the internet.

    Neural DSP teasing something new (Quad Cortex)

    Minor nitpick, but I don't like having even more devices with wifi on them. Hopefully the implementation is solid, I just feel like it's a potential security problem.

    Gibson suing Dean Guitars

    I would be willing to bet this is one of the first things brought up in defense for Dean if this makes it to a court. Show prior usage of the shapes Gibson is trying to claim IP over. It will never make it to court because I can't even see an east Texas judge saying this case has the merits to...

    Fortin Nameless Plugin from NeuralDSP

    You're not ignorant. I just don't have enough money to get one of those units and was trying to think of something cheaper and maybe DIY

    Fortin Nameless Plugin from NeuralDSP

    They run ARM processors which means that stuff designed for PCs and Macs wouldn't be compatible. They're also not a very beefy platform so I doubt they'd have the processing power or RAM to run the VSTs. Some day though I would love to be able to load up a VST, get my presets and IRs worked...

    Horizon Devices Preamp Pedal

    Arnold can have some interesting takes on guitars, but he nitpicks everything to a huge degree. I'm honestly surprised he's ever happy with anything. And I really don't like his tone most of the time, but that's not a dealbreaker.

    Periphery Megathread: Everything Periphery

    Can I just say that I really enjoyed Alpha/Omega? I was listening to it again recently and I enjoyed how well the albums flowed together. I'm not usually a fan of concept albums but this worked for me. I had fun listening to it again.

    2018 (album/ep) Releases

    Don't know if this is SSO's style or not, but Andrew WK put out a new album and it's pretty good.

    Mercuriall is at it again - TRIAXIS

    Hopefully I get my tax return in before the sale is over. Just tried the Spark last night and was super impressed by it.

    Buckethead Interview

    I admit I hesitated to start listening because I've always bought into the Buckethead mystique and wasn't sure I was ready to hear Brian the person. I'm glad that he put this out there though, it sounds like he is really trying to heal himself.

    Anyone Here Ever Give Up Playing Entirely? Or Thinking Of Quitting?

    I've been playing music since I was 11 and I've always considered it a part of me, but I've had times where I didn't want to play or couldn't. I was encouraged in high school to pursue music to some degree by my band teachers (who even offered to put in a good word to me at a couple of...

    The Buckethead thread. Bring the chicken.

    My favorite guitarist and listening to his music was a huge turning point for me. I've had an idea for a tattoo involving him that I will hopefully one day put on myself.

    DragonForce - Reaching Into Infinity

    I like this album. Maybe not my favorite but it's still got it's moments. I will say that I saw the title and my brain read it as "Reaching Infertility"

    Scale the Summit MegaThread

    This is disappointing to say the least. I really thought when I was buying Chris' materials from the StS website I was supporting the whole band or at least they were getting a cut of it or something. Makes me not want to support the endeavor any more.

    Buckethead Announces First Live Shows in 4 Years

    No TX dates :/ I can't believe it's been 10 years since I've seen him live. I've missed him the other times he's come through and I'd love to see him again even if his recent material has been mostly uninspiring.
