    EAE Longsword if I can ever find one. I found a Claymore at the beginning of quarantine but dude flaked out big time and paypal'd me back a month later. At this point it's the thrill of the hunt as much as anything...

    Just an idea, maybe possibly paint existing pickup rings using model paint? I think that stuff is enamel and looks nice on model cars. Seems easier said than done seeing as I'm like a 3 year old with paint, but just throwing it out there in case your skills are better.

    My gf’s mother knocked over my RG8 a couple years ago and it busted a bit (lol). I made a rudimentary one that’s worked ok for a while but I’m finally getting in a brass one that will actually fit and look nice. That plus some new strangs coming in today - got me excited for some after the burial madness this afternoon.

    Lol I actually thought you meant an actual longsword. I'm thinking about getting a katana sword myself.

    mans goddamn if it isn’t too tall. Fuck

    does anyone know a good (easy) way to shorten this damn thing. So disappointed. I sanded off the glue from my mod, so I thought I would be enough, looks like I need to completely delete the shelf but I don’t want to refinish the headstock

    Went and checked out a Precision Partscaster at the local Music Go Round, and walked out with it, now I just need to get this metal pickguard off so I can spray it black and it'll be a looker.

    It also came with flatwounds, and despite playing smoothly, these strings are not for me

    Had one for a long time. Download the mod that allows you to rename everything to the correct names (eg Diezel, Bogner). The stock presets were meh because they were showing off the next settings of each effect or amp model. Dial everything back or lend amps and it sounds fantastic.

    I'm this close to ordering a KNE star body. Just not sure if I want to go 2 1/4" heel and get a Musikraft neck or the standard size and Warmoth.

    Personally I'd go warmoth. I've had very good luck with their necks (I have like 5 necks from them), and they make excellent necks. I really haven't had to do much to them other than install a nut and slightly round some fret edges. Bodies on the other hand, are a mixed bag ime.

    Yeah, this is my 2nd Vetta II. I think they’re great amps. The 5150 amp model is excellent, and there are some really unique tones to be found in this series.

    I've about the same experience with Warmoth with nary an issue. I've had 3 Musikraft necks and all good there as well. I like that Musikraft offers the wider heel but they aren't building bodies anymore.

    I like the KNE star shape better than Warmoth, looks more like the old Charvel bodies and I prefer the way the body joins the heel on the bass side with the KNE. Their prices are really reasonable too.

    It's a push depending on features. Musikraft is a little cheaper when building a neck but a Warmoth showcase neck can be just as reasonable. I'll probably go Musikraft with the wider heel and the Charvel style headstock. Been wanting to try a non fine tuner floyd with a normal nut as well. Should be a cool project for that.

    Fear Factory's Mechanize was recorded with a Vetta and it's STILL one of the best metal tones out there IMO.
