    Left Handed Guitars

    What's schecter like these days for left handed guitars? I seem to recall them having a fair few lefties, especially erg's but haven't checked in recent years. (no reason to since I'm not personally left handed.) Their prices were always pretty decent too, especially when you consider how...

    Kiesel quality control

    Lotta people giving OP grief when all they did was ask a simple question. They weren't even accusatory and ended up happy with the guitar after they got it fixed. Admittedly it was an easy fix, I remember being new to floating trems. My idiot brain couldn't figure out why things went out of...

    Glenn Fricker on modern metal singing

    The most annoying part about Glenn is that shit eating grin that halfway pops on his face when he sharply inhales to stutter out a loud rant. Like, you can tell he's like "this is what the kids came here for, here goes!" He mutters and stumbles and forgets what he's supposed to say too frequently.

    Now that I've had an Evertune guitar for a while...

    My experience with the ever tune was that the guitars are very heavy in comparison to non-et guitars. The acoustic sound is dull, but the Pickups don't typically care for that. (they sounded fine plugged in.) Mine was set up well and it required a light touch to get it to bend. Still, they did...

    Quitting music

    Fortunately I'm a woman, so I'm safe from having to be alpha, beta, sigma, whateverthefuck. Anyway, if this is memeing, this is funny. If not, then it's even more funny. Time to go and actually read beyond the first page and see what's up. lol

    B on a 6

    I prefer sevens for the simple fact that chords end up sounding kinda junky in low tunings. I like being able to retain low fret bar chords while getting a low A or B. I do however really like sixes tuned to D or drop C. One of my most used guitars is a six tuned to D standard that I...

    Blacklisted From Ordering From Rondo Music

    No brownie points needed. You're acting annoying, and your string of emails confirms you were acting annoying. Guy made the right choice blacklisting you if a simple full refund + "sorry, it was sold" leads to unnecessary digging and pages of emails trying to have a "gotcha" moment.

    Blacklisted From Ordering From Rondo Music

    Seems wildly out of character to me. His response to me saying I was considering taking my business elsewhere when I had two orders fairly close together have issues (pickup died in one guitar so likely not a him problem) and getting shipped a neck pickup instead of a bridge pickup. I wasn't...

    George Floyd...

    I mean, that's not my point. I'm not even saying anything overtly positive towards Kyle. I'm saying Kyle was passive all day/night, albeit with a rifle in case things went south. Things DID go south, and he shot someone who was trying to hurt/kill him. Maybe people aren't saying "errrrrrrr...

    George Floyd...

    So the consensus in this forum is "privileged white 17 year old's brains against the floor good, but privileged 3 white guys with huge rap sheets including kid rape and wife beating and domestic abuse are okay?" Gotcha, thanks.

    Do any coil tapped Humbuckers compare to a Strat?

    I like this response, and it puts more in detail kind of what I was thinking. But, final weird semi-tangent, is a coil split not somehow a tap? Like, I know a tap is more akin to "you output "x" amount of winds before the full amount of winds." But, for simplicities sake, lets say there are...

    Do any coil tapped Humbuckers compare to a Strat?

    This in conjunction with a few other responses kind of clears it up for me. Humbuckers are basically built, by coil, differently than your standard single coil. It's either hotter or colder than a typical single coil.

    George Floyd...

    Oh believe me, I'm aware that I'm siding with some MAGA/Blue line folks, and that's not the default me. Again it's people starting fires and shooting guns like yosemite sam into the air and then getting shot vs someone who honestly looked like they were trying to do good. I still don't let...

    Do any coil tapped Humbuckers compare to a Strat?

    I kind of understood that, but doesn't that just cancel out the second coil? So shouldn't the remaining coil just be a single coil? Or does the fact that it's just tapping off after the first coil make that much of a difference where it's not the same as just running that one coil without the...

    George Floyd...

    Final thing I'll say in here, (at least in regards to this situation... Thread title/original topic still triggers me about shitty systemic racism, as well as what spawned these riots.) but I'm neither a he or white, and I've been inclined to side with Kyle so you'd lose whatever you bet, at...

    Do any coil tapped Humbuckers compare to a Strat?

    I'm curious what the actual difference between single coil and coil split is. I've never thought to hard about it, and am pretty ignorant to the construction of a pickup. Does it have to do with winding not being the same on the single coil of a humbucker, or is it more the position of pole...

    Help deciding

    Is... Is this what a landslide looks like... I also vote Schecter. Just an all around better guitar, imho.

    George Floyd...

    I'm gonna bow out, but just wanted to share that despite holding different views I have no ill will towards you or anyone else. It's too mentally taxing on me to continue stressing out about this, which ultimately has no bearing on me since I'm not one to go out with a gun into a riot/be the...

    Sell a Gibson, get an Epiphone

    Epiphones aren't typically bad, and Gibsons can be great too. Selling a Gibson for an epi, or even vice versa, is ill advised in the fact that they're really quite different guitars. I've played plenty of Epiphones and plenty of Gibson's, and I wouldn't say they're interchangeable just because...

    George Floyd...

    He did a really bad job of escalating then considering how many people he ran into and didn't hurt or antagonize.
