    burst-finish les pauls for hard rock/metal

    what do you guys think about it? if you saw someone playing van halen or slayer or ozzy on a lp with a burst, would you laugh at how silly they looked? do you guys think that you can really only pull it off with a les paul with a solid color finish (randy rhoads, zakk wylde, vivian campbell)...

    big muff??

    Hey guys, haven't been here a while, but im sure a lot of you have a lot of experience with big muff pis. i generally want it to sound massive, i mostly want it to have some grit, but if i can get some smoothness out of it, even better. basically ive been looking at the big muff pi w/ tone...

    First bass + bass amp?

    hey what's up guys. so im pretty convinced that my studio deluxe lp is extremely versatile with the burstbucker pro and 490R, and the coil splitting sounds pretty good to my ears (not comparable to an actual single coil, still good nonetheless). i don't think ill need another guitar for a while...

    finish issues...

    hey mlp, i got a minor issue with the finish of my studio deluxe 60s in tobacco burst.. well on my chair, where you would sit, it would make a slight U shape, and the part of the u that went up, constantly hit my guitar, so my mom's ex boyfriend (back when he was the boyfriend) duct taped a...

    studio deluxe 60s for a trad pro?

    hey guys... sorry if this is the wrong forum, but i want to sell my studio deluxe 60s and buy a trad pro. The deluxe 60s is in extremely solid condition. there's scratches on the back (isn't that with any guitar? :naughty:) but they're only noticeable if you really try and find them in light...

    Captain Beefheart?

    Can someone explain this to me? I'm trying to listen to Trout Mask Replica... but I don't get why people think this is good... it's laughably bad.

    studio 60s vs trad pro

    hey guys... im not saying i want to at this moment, but it's something i may consider doing. would selling my tobacco burst studio 60s to get a tobacco burst trad pro be worth it? only things i see right off the bat that are different are binding, pickups, pickguard and a plek set up. are these...

    NPD zVex fuzz factory

    hey mlp, took a trip to 8th street music in jersey yesterday, looking for a fuzz. i tried big muff pi with tone wicker, proco rat, and this fuzz factory. all pedals were great, and i almost went with the rat, but the fuzz factory, for me at least, blew the others out of the water not only in...

    questions on my next amp (an orange)

    hey guys, i've been thinking a lot lately on a different sound than my usual marhsall avt20 combo. im not saying its bad, im just looking for something with...a little more clarity i suppose, and something which can handle the classic rock tones a bit more, aswell as the crushing...

    White vs. Black

    alright guys, i dont know when, but im imagining my next lp to be a classic custom :applause: either that, or ill buy a used custom or something, im not sure which would be better. but imo the torrefied fretboards dont look as bad as everyone thinks they do. anyways, i can't decide for the life...

    Thoughts on Orange amps?

    hey everyone, i made a trip to guitarcenter yesterday, yeah i know bad choice but i got an oppurtinity to play an orange tiny terror 1x12 combo. pretty cool amp, just wish it would have a footswitch/switchable channel. Besides that, i thought it sounded great clean and dirty. i wanted to play...

    mic levels fluctuating?..

    hey guys, i have an sm57, which i wanted to use to mic my amp to record songs. well, when i use sound recorder, or reaper (i have windows vista btw) and try and record my amp, when i listen to the recording, some parts it's loud, some parts it's quiet. i know it's not a problem with the mic...

    first microphone

    hey guys, im looking for my first mic :thumb: it's going to be mainly for recording an amp, should sound good when recording clean and distorted guitar, and it being able to do a good enough job (not looking for anything mindblowingly great) for recording vocals is a huge plus. i was looking at...

    Mr. Crowley first solo

    this solo is ridicilous. well for starters in the beginning the blues licks and pentatonic runs in sextuplets are hard enough to play up to tempo, let alone in perfect sextuplet time, then at the end of the it goes to 2 32nd note patterns in the fingering shape of 421 and 421, then that big...

    burstbucker pro (replacement)

    hey mlp, so my studio delxue (see avatar) has a burstbucker pro in the bridge:hmm: at first i thought it was a very good sounding pickup, but now im starting to realize it's decent at best... i usually play all my rock/metal oriented things (think van halen, megadeth, black sabbath, guns n roses...

    best bang for your buck cable?

    hey guys, one of my crappy 3 ft cables got a short in it, so now i have to spin it around otherwise it makes a dreadful noise. im looking for a quality cable that won't break, reduces feedback, and maybe even makes my guitar sound better (i'm not sure if that's possible :D). of course i looked...

    loose pickup switch?...

    hi guys, sorry if this is the wrong forum, but on my LP the pickup selector is loose. not the actual piece protruding that switches to one side or the other, but the ring that holds that in place, along with the washer with "treble" and rythm. the pickups work just fine, it's just the damn...

    a few crybaby questions.

    hey MLPers, i was wondering, when you have the wah plugged in on both sides and running off the battery but it's not on, does that use up battery? my other question is if i should get a new crybaby or wah. i love the crybaby i have, the gcb-95, but i hate the fact that because it's not true...
