    Crate V33H amp mod

    Hello everyone. I was looking for a project amp and a crate v33h popped up for very very cheap. I vaguely remember people taking about modding them back in the day. I got the amp, and was pretty underwhelmed with the sound stock as I assume most where when the amp was new. I set out to find the...

    Iron Gear review on Hot Slag and Rolling Mill Pickups

    I heard a lot of good things about the iron Gear pickups for the price I had to jump on it and give it a try. So I got the Hot Slag bridge and Rolling Mill Neck, and have added them to my Squier telecaster Deluxe. Which before had the stock Fender Wide range humbuckers which were a bit muddy. I...

    Agile Septor 727 Pickup Recommendations

    Hey all! So I got an Agile Septor 727 a few weeks ago and I'm really enjoying it. Maybe a few minor complaints, but I think it's worth the price. Anyway, I'm not a big fan of the stock Cepheus pickups, they sounds really muddy on the 6th and 7th strings (and a little even on the 5th at times...

    Jackson JS22-7 Dinky Humbucker Question

    Hey all! So I've seen a lot of mention on this forum about the JS22-7, but it seems like most are dealing with the version I don't have. I recently bought one used and want to replace the PUPs but I'm a little concerned about humbucker size and compatibility. The Jackson I ended up with has the...

    Adding a Tone Knob

    My main eight, an Agile Intrepid Pro 828 MN Nat, has NO tone knob. It has a single EMG 808 and a volume knob and that's it. I've already ruled out routing another pickup hole but want to add a tone knob to male the whole thing a little more versatile. Has anybody done this before? Can I do it...
