    Wouldn't a proper Hendrix Signature Strat...

    I've seen some Charvels that can pull off the reverse headstock, but on a traditional looking Strat it just doesn't work. An upside down Strat just looks better. I've been toying around with the idea since I started to learn guitar. I only mess with the controls on my Strat because they're so...

    I found out about that movie from my uncles that were Marines. They're the same ones that made sure I knew that only women were allowed in the Army. I love shit talking as much as the next guy; but one thing I've learned from friends and family that were in the military, they get that shit down...

    I've always heard if you make a mistake in a song, make it again and then it's jazz. I like to think of myself as a very accomplished jazz guitar player. :slash:

    I'm just glad your friend has a guitar to rock out on now. :dude:

    That surprises me too. I got it before SS frets were really a thing on regular guitars. It's probably some super hard Chinese mystery metal. :hmm:

    A new guitarist emerges today (Now with photos)

    Ya, I bought it at Guitar Center like 5-6 years ago when I got into Japanese metal and "had" to have a goofy shaped guitar. I only had it a couple months when I started pickup swapping on it. It had a couple sets in it, but none of them ever sounded good to me. So it sat in my closet in a...

    I've played plenty of Epis that were great, but the headstock bugs me on Les Paul shapes. I don't mind it on stuff like me Epi acoustic, or something like a Sheraton or a Wilshire, just not on a Les Paul.

    I wouldn't think it would have SS frets, it's an LTD F-50. I'm glad she likes like it. I just had it sitting in my closet in pieces, so I'm glad someone has it that's going to rock out on it. :dude: :dude: :dude:

    Clapton is like coffee, better with Cream. At least I guess so...I hate coffee, and the only Clapton record I like is Disraeli Gears.

    This has probably been done on here, and even if hasn't, I TOTALLY didn't steal this idea off another forum I'm on. I figure we can make it at least a couple pages before it gets locked because of something stupid like pickguard on/off or top wrapping. :io:Just try to keep it somewhat...

    If I can post the picture of the neck on my "cheapo Standard" it seems like I keep posting... Neck too thick??? Play it until it's not.

    Do You Upgrade/Mod Your Guitars?

    Most of mine are, but it depends on the guitar. I have an old Charvel from the 80s that the wiring is a nightmare, and has a coil split switch added to it, and I'm pretty sure when I get around to rewire it I'm going to change it to a Stratoblaster. My Strat I wasn't really planning on modding...

    Pay It Forward Again

    Alright, this is what I've dug up so far, a couple project guitars I'm never going to finish. Washburn 7 string It needs a nut and some tuners, and I'm pretty sure I have a bridge and a tailpiece around here if some one needs one to go with it. It has a Dimarzio John Petrucci pickup (not...

    What should I do with the switch on my guitar?

    I found out on another forum it's a coil split. It's been added to the guitar, it supposed to be just 1 humbucker and 1 volume knob. I'm still leaning towards a Stratoblaster and that's a 9v and a little circuit board with a trim pot if I remember right, it looks like there should be enough...
