    NGD: ESP Arrow (Sugilite)

    I already have an Original Series Arrow in Black Andromeda, so this was not the most necessary purchase I've made to date. But when I saw the Sugilite finish, I couldn't pass on it. Never seen another Arrow like it. Of course, much like every Original Series/Custom Shop ESP I've ever laid my...

    NGD! Ormsby Hype GTI Standard Scale

    Got my second Ormsby guitar on Friday! I've been wanting a light blue guitar for a while now and haven't found anything that really fit what I wanted in terms of specs.

    New Pickup Recommendations?

    Hi all! Sorry for the long winded post ahead of time lol. I recently picked up a Solar SB1.6 and while I love the feel of the guitar, the pickups leave a bit to be desired, especially in terms of clarity and the mids are scooped. I'm pretty happy with the tone I get out of my 7 string with...

    Does Anybody Else Like Tuning a Standard-Scale 6-String Down Into 8-String Territory?

    Tl;dr: thread title. I go through these occasional fits of inspiration where I really like the idea of a standard-scale 6-string tuned down to a ridiculous register, like G1 or F#1 standard. I get that it presents all kinds of problems wrt harmonicity, intonation, etc., but I kind of like that...

    My main problem with 7 string guitars..

    Don't get me wrong, I love my 7 string. But, due to its size, it makes 6 string guitars feel like a twig. After months of playing my 7, going back to a 6 just feels uncomfortable. Does anyone feel similar about this?

    How changing guitar strings sound like:

    Preface - I have a 6-string fender strat with bareknuckle juggernauts. I've never owned a 7-string guitar. I was changing my guitar strings with it still being plugged into my Axe-FX and it sounded kinda cool being detuned and stuff. I have no idea what the tuning is haha. Check it out...

    Jackson Soloist Pro

    Hi, I've been offered this Jackson Soloist Pro series. The dude says that he changed the real floyd for a cheap one because he never uses it. The pots and pickup selector also look different from a real one but he says they are original. Do you think it's a real Jackson Pro or a copy? Thanks!

    Alright here we go with the cliche.... Hi my name is Calvin....... hello Calvin....... I currently play a 6 string but my metal I feel isn't metal enough. Although the douche baggery of buying an 8 or 9 string right away is compelling, I feel dipping my tootsies in the shallow end of the...
