    For any PC gamers -- Steam sale

    I've seen Steam mentioned a few times on MLP, so I'd just though I'd give a heads-up. Very decent winter sale, I just picked up both Metro games, Fallout 4, the remastered version of Skyrim and the first Dishonored for less than £32, which is less than any one of those games should cost...

    Suggest me some Linux Distros

    Got an old Dell I want to turn into a family PC (so that I'm not constantly being called on to work magic with iPads), but I don't to spring the money on a Windows 10 licence if the family wont use it. So can anyone suggest some easy, low impact Linux distros? Bearing in mind that this PC...

    Anyone know what this is? Clapton brand 70's era.

    I got tagged in this photo on Facebook earlier, the owner wants to know what it is. I'm stumped (as, apparently, is Google) so I'd though I'd call on the infinite wisdom of MLP. It has 1975 engraved on the back. Any ideas?

    Japan Travel Advice

    My Sister and I are planning a trip to Japan next August, a country we're both fascinated by and have always wanted to visit. We're planning to be there for about three weeks and we aren't wanting to stay in one place, we want to experience as much of the diversity the country has to offer as...

    Top Gear -- Chris Evans steps down.

    Guardian story He was the biggest thing holding the rebooted show back (the second being that it's still called 'Top Gear'). I might actually watch it now that he's gone. Providing that they actually make another series...

    Question for any Graphic designers/Illustrators out there.

    This is a subject I don't know much about, so I'd thought Id ask the question here: My little sister is off to University in September to do a Fashion/Costuming degree, and one of the course requirements/recommendations is that she should have some ability to create computer illustrations and...

    Maybe some competition for the iPod

    I haven't come across a device that looks like it could really compete with the overall package of the iPod (not that I've been looking), but I've just stumbled across this Android based player from Onkyo. It's more expensive, but when you consider the increase in quality and the fact that this...

    Custom Shop Strat -- Soft fretwire?

    Not sure if this me being overly "picky" or not, but anyway: I've got a 2011 Custom Shop '60 Relic Strat (see avatar) which is currently my go to guitar. However, within about a year of owning it (purchased new in 2012), I'd worn the frets between, say, the seventh and fifteenth down flat (not...

    What could be causing this noise?

    My Two-Rock started making this noise a couple of days ago, and I assumed that is was a bad connection in one of the leads somewhere in amongst the couple of drives and a wah going into the front of the amp. So this morning I unplug everything from the front end to go through the leads and...

    Learning to love heavier strings?

    Right. Long story short, I have pathetic girly hands and have only ever been able to handle gauge 9 strings on Fenders. Last week I decided to try 10's on my Custom-Shop Strat (because it's always felt a little slinkier that my other Fenders) and I now have the tone that I've always wanted...

    Any Philip Sayce fans out there?

    I'm not sure how many of you know of this guy, but I thought I'd share some of his music anyway. Really talented blues/rock guitarist and judging from a few of his interview I've watched/read, a really nice guy too. Philip Sayce Alchemy - YouTube Philip Sayce - 09. Are You Ready...

    Think my opinion of Macs is about to perform a U-turn.

    Any of you that are particularly skilled with PCs might be able to help me here. So, last night my PC , whilst hibernating, just updated itself without any notification or asking for permission (this despite the fact I'd turned auto-update off, because they always break something) and I've...

    New Plastics on my Les Paul Brimstone

    Well here she is, as promised. I'd like to apologise in advance for the quality of the lighting in the photos. I will edit and update this thread when the Sun graces us with it's presence, although that's likely to be many years from now, so these place-holders will have to do for now. I...

    Attenuating a Marshall...

    Right, here comes one helluva Newbish question, as you are about to discover, I know very little about amps: I own a Marshall DSL-50 Head, going into a Marshall 1936 2-12 cab, and I've been looking into getting an attenuator to reign in the death and destruction that it's quite capable of...

    Normal P90s in a Humbucker route?

    I found this photo on another Les Paul forum: And from what I can see, this Deluxe has some form of plastic insert to allow standard P90s to be used in a Humbucker sized route, which is amazing because I've always wanted P90s in a Les Paul, but can't quite afford a R4/R6 (but I'm working...

    Need help with an American Strat

    Hi all, this is my first time venturing outside of the "Gibson Les Paul" section of this forum. I've always had sort of a love-hate relationship with Strats; I generally find them much more comfortable and much easier to play than Les Pauls, but I've never liked the way the Bridge/Middle...

    The Sun came out today... (Pic. heavy)

    It was surprisingly sunny today, and seeing as this is England, and that happens here once every Thirty-Five years or so, I though I'd better take the opportunity to attempt some half decent Photos of my Guitars. First off, here's my 04' Les Paul Classic: The Camera (I'm assuming)...

    NGD Standard plus LTD Edition.

    First of all, I apologize for the truly terrible picture quality, I've never really been one for taking pictures so the best camera I have is lodged in the back of a Blackberry. I just got my new Les Paul Standard Plus, Limited Edition Brimstone burst. ^ I'm a technological retard, so if...

    Buying a Les Paul in America.

    Hello all, first time poster. I've been looking at a few of the threads made by American users of this forum that have purchased Les Pauls in US stores, and I can't believe the difference in price between there and here in England. Of course I would expect a slight increase in price due to...
