    NGD - 1960 Bourbon Burst

    I have the same guitar and color scheme, absolutely love it. I'm pretty new to guitars, but it seems the quality gap between Epi and Gib has narrowed significantly.

    Fastest neck on a single cut: Schecter Solo Apocalypse vs ESP LTD EC-1000?

    What mods do you have? I learned to play on an RGA42fm I bought used, I swapped out the stock Quantums for JB/Jazz pair, it sounds and plays great for a $400 guitar.

    Fastest neck on a single cut: Schecter Solo Apocalypse vs ESP LTD EC-1000?

    Anyone else love their Gibson or Epi, but also love Ibanez Wizard necks? Do any single cuts get close in terms of flat radius, string spacing, and feel?

    Fool In The Rain

    I've been messing around learning the riff and solo, which to me, is one of the most unique tones Page ever coaxed out of a guitar. (For some time, I suspected it was actually a kazoo) Pretty sure that's neck pickup, but what else does he have dialed in there? Any guess on how to approximate...

    Epi LP upgrade ideas

    Yeah for now I can't outplay the stock Probuckers, and they sound really good to me anyway. The THR can do some cool stuff, I just haven't invested the time to learn how to dial it in with the Android app.

    Epi LP upgrade ideas

    I have an Epi LP Standard 60's, which came with Probuckers. I love it, and am not in any hurry to change things, but love to tinker. My main interests are classic rock and mainstream metal (Zep, Molly Hatchet, Billy Squire, Metallica, Iron Maiden, Black Label) but also like Satriani, KWS,and...

    Practice Studio Setup

    Pardon my naivete, will most computer sound cards adequately drive passive monitors?

    Practice Studio Setup

    I'm currently working on setting up the spare bedroom as a practice studio. It will do double duty as an occasional guest room. I need to keep it simple, so it will be 3-4 guitars on the wall, a couple floor stands, a chair and a stool, and I have a desk PC. I'd like to add a sound system to...

    How to judge progress...

    That's why I'm reluctant to take lessons, some of the players ever are mostly self-taught. I appreciate the perspective.

    How to judge progress...

    I took up guitar at age 57 in June 2020. I started with Steve Stine's free beginner course, and felt I made good progress for a few months. I like his stuff on technique and theory, and use a few others for song tutorials (Rob Brown's Guitar 365, Shut Up And Play) At this point I'm feeling...

    Selector switch knob sizes

    I recently bought and installed an upgrade wiring harness for my Ibanez RGA 42fm. The replacement 5-way switch (920D Custom) is too big for the stock Ibanez switch knob. I've had the same problem with a Franken Tele I built - a standard Top Hat knob wont fit the aftermarket 3 way switch. Are...
