    I'm a new apprentice

    My wife is much cooler with TAS than GAS. She understands there is a much greater chance of making money with the tools instead of gear and pouring money into another band. She's pretty cool.

    I'm a new apprentice

    I bugged a local luthier -actually I wanted him to look at my Les Paul to see if there was anything I could do to make it even easier to play and ask about fretwork and I mentioned how much I love classical guitars, and would love to build them despite being a shite classical player. So a couple...

    Beano Boost?

    Finally got the War Pig from Black Cat Vintage Guitar FX, it is nicely wired. Pics and review later -I'm nursing a knee injury and will need to slide down the basement steps to test it later.

    Ibanez recs..

    I've owned a few RG's over the years and they are great versatile guitars.

    I started with the Stroboclip and then got the HD. It's tough doing an intonation job with the clip on. It doesn't hold the note as long. Also the clip broke a while ago. A Korg Pitchblack would work for most. I did intonation jobs back in the 90's with a Sabine, a Korg, and a Seiko at...

    I use a Peterson with the guitar in the playing position approximating my or the player's described touch. I also tune the 5th fret and intonate at the 17th in EQU mode (per Peterson's recs) I feel it gives better results all over, but especially higher up.

    Beano Boost?

    Black Cat Vintage FX is refunding my money, we'll see if that actually happens just like ordering a unit from them. I can't believe I'm saying I have to "settle for" an Analog Man Beano. The War Pig was the unit to have -OC44, Mullard tone caps, vintage resistors, and hand wired. Idk why...

    Beano Boost?

    6 weeks. I ordered a War Pig that was never sent to me from Black Cat Vintage Guitar fx. I've received numerous emails from the seller promising the pedal was built/shipped which culminated with a FedEx and Parcel2Go tracking number showing (again) the package was never picked up on his end...

    HNGD to me! Epi SG Classic

    Thank you. I'm amazed at how well it plays. I'm thinking of getting another Epi SG for X-mas (61 std or reg std).

    I don't love my Pyramids.

    I love the warmth of pure nickel strings ever since someone on here recommended the DR Pure Blues, I was a Dean Markley Cryo fan until then. Ernie Ball makes the Classic Rock and Roll nickel sets. Maybe their version will work better for you since you were using EB Power Slinky before.

    HNGD to me! Epi SG Classic

    This is my first Epi and first axe purchased online (Sweetwater) and I am amazed! Except for 1 finish blem that I can live with, and lowering the treble side action 1/64th" she is as good as I would have picked from a local store. The tongue has some nice fall away, and the neck is dead...

    Looking for an SG -Orville?

    I'm looking for an SG, the new Epiphones look nice (SG Classic, Classic worn I might want p90's and the Standard). I'm also open to MIJ versions. I've yet to be disappointed with axes from Japan. Their fretwork is always great, they shred etc. Would it be worth spending more on an Orville with...
