    Looking to buy my next Extended guitar, need help!

    6 years ago, I bought a Stephen Carpenter LTD 8 string. To me the tone sounded like a string bolted to a piece of driftwood: Muffled, with no clarity.

    Power supply 5x2.1 or 5.5x2.5?

    Hello, guys! As I couldn't find the exact supply type my NUX Od-3 uses, I bought a universal 9v 600mA DC power supply. It has a few jacks, and both 5x2.1 and 5.5x2.5 seem to work fine. I found on the internet afterwards that most power supplies are 5.5x2.1, a jack that I don't have. I returned...

    Do I have a short in my cable or guitar?

    I'm trying to figure out what is going on with my tone. Sometimes my tone can be a little lifeless, but I get used to it. So I end up not noticing it. Until it sounds normal again. The normal version sounds thicker, like it has more juice to it. I thought it was my cable so I switched to a...
