    what's wrong with Marshall MG amps

    I love an MG100HDFX head plugged into my 1960AV cab. I get awesome tone with it. I don't care what anyone says. Actually... I think the prices for used MG100HDFX heads are going up on ebay.. they used to be $150-200 .. last I looked, they're going for $300-350

    Video About How to Solder

    I think it helps to have a nice soldering station like a Hakko FX888-D or a Weller WESD-51 ... and a nice chisel tip on your iron. The chisel tip transfers heat much better than a conical tip. Also I really like the brass mesh tip cleaners.. I seem to get much better results with that than a...

    no offense, but why can't Gibson make a good pickup?

    Well... no matter now... cause I just ordered a set of Seth Lovers and I'm gonna put em in my Gibson LP Standard (which currently has the stock BB PROS) ... so I shall soon find out :D

    no offense, but why can't Gibson make a good pickup?

    So... are Seymour Duncan Seth Lovers better than Burstbucker Pros?

    335 Electronics Installation (a.k.a. How to take years off your life)

    I did one of my Epi DOTs a few weeks ago. Complete replacement of pickups, wiring, pots, switch and output jack. I'd never done a semi hollow before.. but I wanted to experience it... and I want to do it again several more times to get better and better at it!! I'll post some pics...

    Too many USA models

    There are almost as many models variations as there are things to bitch about.

    JCM 800 for the uninitiated

    The JCM 800 I have actually has a volume knob on it ... so that solves the problem of it being "too loud".

    Strat Family pic

    Thanks :) The blue one is an MIM Lake Placid Blue and I installed Fender Fat 50s pickups in it. The black one is also an MIM and I installed a black guard to make it look like David Gilmour's and I also installed Fender Tex Mex pickups. I want to post some sound clips soon...

    Strat Family pic

    Just for the fun of it. ... Been really getting into my Strats lately and felt like sharing :) My Spiderman guitar is a Dimarzio body and neck with a Kahler tremolo system on it. It used to have Fender Lace Sensors in it but I recently installed Fender Fat 50s pickups in it and...

    NGD and NAD - Fender galore!

    I LOVE this pic!! The shiny Strat and Tele with that beautiful DRRI. Looks as beautiful as the crystal clear clean tone they produce! :) Loved your clip as well. Sounded GREAT! :cool:

    It seems to me that a LP has more 'color' in its tone than a Strat, and a Strat has

    Strat on the bridge or neck pickup with the tone knob rolled back a little through a cranked Marshall can sound just like a Les Paul IMO. Plus with a Strat you can get those sweet crystal clear tones. I enjoy all 5 positions. I LOVE playing a Strat into a Tubescreamer'd clean amp!! Sweet...

    I still want a white custom LOL

    I just wipe it down after playing it (most of the time), and I also gig with a fan on me when it's warm so I don't sweat on it too much.

    Stock Epiphone pickups = MUD

    I have a 2007 Vintage Burst plain top Epi LP Standard with stock pickups and they actually have plenty of snap to 'em. Through my setup I get all the clarity and sweet tone I want. Even on the neck pickup. But my 2006 Epi Black Beauty on the other hand... that thing was MUD MUD MUD and more...

    I still want a white custom LOL

    I've had this 2002 LP Custom since 2006. I hope to never sell it. It plays and sounds just as amazing as my Gibsons and of course looks beautiful. I installed a set of Burstbucker PROs in it shortly after I got it. I gig it all the time and it's a 100% professional quality guitar. :cool:

    Ever buy an Epi Les Paul AFTER buying a Gibson Les Paul?

    I feel the same way!! I have 6 Gibson LPs and 8 Epi LPs and they're all great!! Yes the Gibsons are a little nicer but the Epis are great in every way and I enjoy 'em just as much ... and gig them all regularly.
