    Dumb question? What do you play your backing tracks through?

    My amp has a Line in jack so I use my phone with an aux and a 3.5 to 1/4 converter. Now that I have a guitar processor, I just use its aux input. To try something different, I suggest you use your earphones to play your backing tracks. Put only one earphone in your ear and turn your other free...

    Newb question...what's with stringing over the stop bar?

    I did the top wrapping thing to my new LP to reduce the break angle and make the stop bar have more contact with the body. I don't really find the strings slinkier. And now that I'm using 10's i have to fight with the guitar a little to bend the strings now. But the sustain is a little better...

    I will post more tones next week when my semester exams end. I'm yet to try some songs on my les paul. I changed the strings to 10's and it gave me tuning problems so I filed the nut and all that and now it's stays in tune forever.

    If i ever have to get a real amp again in the future, it would totally be the new JCM800 (or even the head&cab because it looks so fancy) . The amp wasn't exactly Poo Poo. I think it is about what someone is looking for. I liked he idea of a low wattage tube amp but later when I properly...

    I haven't really got time to sit down with it. Lately I've been into Oasis and i really like Don't look back in anger. So yesterday I plugged my phone into the pedal and started chasing the sound of Noel Gallagher. Marshall amp model, a tube screamer, some delay and reverb. It wasn't the exact...

    [NGD] MY FIRST GIBSON LES PAUL

    Does the control cavity look fine to you? I was a little concerned about the little burn on this white wire.

    Definitely no biasing did cross my mind but I read about the horrifying dangers so i didn't want to play around with it. I was never sure about the amp so in case I wanted to return it I didn't want to open it.

    [NGD] MY FIRST GIBSON LES PAUL

    I exchanged the amp because it just didn't sound right to me. Got a Boss GT100 instead.

    I exchanged the amp for a Boss GT100. Quiet, flexible and has everything I need (aux, looper & recording). I didn't get much time to learn how it works yet but the presets were pretty impressive. I think i am finally getting the sound I wanted for so long.

    Thanks everyone for the input. (un)fortunately, I am returning the amp today. I wanted a good sound at low wattage and price without compromising anything but that doesn't seem to be possible today. I might exchange it for the lionheart L20t or a multi FX pedal like a Line 6 Pod HD500X or...

    I only adjusted the action and the pup height & its pole pieces to my preference. I lubed the nut with graphite, truss rod was fine and so was the intonation. The guitar came with burstbuckers 1&2 and they sound 'vintagey' to me so they're fine for my taste.

    I don't think I can return it now. I will have to wait years before I get the sound I really want. I knew I should've just bought a multi fx pedal. Any tips/mods are welcomed.
