    Sterling by Music Man JP157, Neptune blue. Haven’t had a 7-stringer in ages, so I’m really looking forward to see how this one fits my hands...

    • 30' scale length
    • 3 piece Maple neck

    Oooh what brand? I need a set for my strat that needs push-pull knobs. I was looking at Tele knobs from Forney:

    Just got an amptweaker depthfinder the other day and have a Victory Amps Countess V4 preamp pedal out for delivery today. The plan is to have 3 channels between my TMpro and the Countess covering a bit more ground tone wise. The clips I've heard of the Countess sound delicious and the TMpro does the tight brutal death metal thing excellently. So I'm eager to see what kind of boosted tones I can get out of the Countess. I've been playing the shit out of the Rg550 I bought for my bday since I got it put back together and polished last week. I refinished it from black to a blue glitter finish which looks slick and has the 80's shred vibe going strong. Waiting on a pair of Duncan Dualities for that and a blue glitter truss rod cover and pickguard. I think that's everything at the moment.
    Oh and the rig will be
    Guitar->isp decimator->boss ms-3->OD808->TMpro(Depthfinder in loop)/[countess in sidetrak]-> rtn to ms-3->output to mooer radar-> 2 JBL 308s
    Thus far running a pedalboard rig into studio monitors I've been happier with my tone than ever. Clear tight and fully tweakable with next to no menu diving(the thing that kills modelers for me).

    I've been on a strat GAS kick lately but also really wouldn't mind another Jackson SL1...best of both worlds there. But also makes me think about looking into some of the other HSS options around. The Charvel's, Ibanez AZ's etc...

    Guess we'll see how finances are looking here in a few months with all the craziness going on.

    Yeah probably getting the HX Effects next.

    Sucks because I may need to get a new one. I don't trust finding a used one and end up getting one with noise problems

    Nevermind, bought a Torpedo Captor. Found a good deal on one.

    Wanted an actual reactive load since the one I got isn't apparently a real reactive load? :lol:

    I kind of want an interface for around $50, which I don't think I'm gonna find. I basically only need/want it to hook up my guitar to my laptop.

    ^For $50 don't even bother. There's stuff out there on Reverb for that price, but it's all 15 year old early gen USB1.0 crap that will cause you bodily and mental injury. Spend the extra 50-75 and get something modern and decent.

    I don't need phantom power, mic inputs, or anything like that. I just need something to plug a guitar into that hooks up to the computer via USB.

    The first interface I bought was a Lexicon Lambda that I got in 2006. I think I paid $120, and I'm sure asshats still sell them to unsuspecting schmucks for the same price. I used it mostly just for getting my guitar into my computer to record. I never got better than 600ms of latency using it, it would randomly unconnect from my computer for no reason, and it was suspiciously around the time when I learned what Stockholm syndrome was. If you like having aneurysms and wasting time, I'd recommend it.

    Looking for an affordable wireless (mainly quarantine playing w/o cables - if they ever let us out again may be even for rehearsals).

    Anything note-worthy currently, apart from the G10?
