    NGD: Well, I guess that makes it a keeper.

    So, I'm a big fan of Frank Iero, and I've been trying to find one of his sig Wilshires, but every time I find one I can't afford it, and when I can afford it I can't find one. So I finally gave up and just bought a regular one, but I'm still thinking about modding this one to be like the one he...

    WTB: Epiphone Wilshire Phant-o-matic

    I've been trying to find one of these for a while and it never works out when I find one. Even if somebody could give me a lead on finding one it would be appreciated.

    Your Ideal Amp

    I'm sure we all have a favorite amp that even though we love it, it just needs that little somethin somethin to make it perfect. So what would it be? I really like my Peavey Deuce, but the main problem is, Jesus Christ...old Peaveys are loud. I've had a couple half stacks and a 212 Peavey 6505...

    I've been wanting to name my Les Paul for a while.

    I've always thought naming things was stupid, but this is pretty much the only guitar I've played the last 12 years, and I'm pretty attached to it. I figure it deserves a name. I found this when I was looking for a pick earlier. The dude that sold it to me at Guitar Center gave me one of his...

    I want a nickel bridge for my Les Paul.

    My pickups have nickel covers, so they look weird with the chrome bridge. I've tried looking it up, but all the talk about bridges I've found is about trying to get a better tone or making it more vintage correct. I don't care about any of that, I like how my guitar sounds as it is. So what are...

    That's Definitely My Kid...

    So my son has autism, and usually loses his shit around loud noises. The past couple times I've been playing guitar he'll come running in the room with his hands over his ears and after a little bit start saying too loud. So I'll stop and he gets upset. I ask him what's wrong and he'll say he...

    Anyone want to help a vinyl noob out?

    My wife got me a Crosley for Christmas because I always griping that there was an old classic rock record I wanted to get, but I'd found 2 copies of it on cd, and both were way too high for a cd. After the new wore off I started realizing how not good it sounded, I ordered a set of Edifier...

    Had my first jam session in a while.

    I've been drinking a lot recently because my grandma passed away, but I've been trying to play guitar to keep me busy so I won't drink. But this past Friday one of my buddys came over to have a couple drinks. We wound up talking about bands we where in back in the day which led to us having a...

    The Unpopular Opinions Thread.

    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...

    What should I do with the switch on my guitar?

    I have an old Charvel Model 2 that need to be rewired. Sometime in the past 30 some odd years, somebody added some kind of switch to it. I'm not real sure what it does (I guess either a coil tap or phase switch) but it makes it sound real thin and staticy, and it has one of the worst solder jobs...

    NGD: Custom ESP content

    Before I even type anything, just look at this: I've wanted an ESP ever since I got into Metallica. And I've had plenty of LTDs, but ever timey I had the money to get an ESP, something would always come up. And over the past couple years, I got less into playing guitar and more into drinking...

    A question about learning scales and theory.

    So, a little backstory, I've been playing guitar for probably 15 years, but 99% of it has just been playing along with tabs, minus 4 or 5 years where I had more interest in getting drunk than learning guitar. Recently I got the same guitar bug I got when I was a teenager. I've been busy...

    Finally getting my own guitar space.

    Up until recently me and my family have lived in a trailer that was way to small, so my gear has always got shuffled around depending on where no one else was. Kids are watching cartoons, play in the bedroom, then the wife decides to watch Game of Thrones, well, looks like I'm playing guitar in...

    How do backstage passes work?

    I was looking at what bands are coming to town and Red Dragon Cartel's coming. Not that big of a fan of them, but I am a big Jake Lee fan. I kinda destroyed my first guitar trying to paint it to look like his guitar from the Bark at the Moon video. Backstage passes cost about the same as what...

    I've never been more proud of myself.

    Yesterday I was going to change the strings on my Strat and the battery in my tuner was low enough that it would barely stay on long enough to make sure the strings were in tune. Which wouldn't be that big of a deal except my Strat has a Floyd Rose and I was changing string gauges. I had it...

    My Strat needs some upgrades.

    I have one of the Dave Murray Strats that has a Hot Rail in the bridge and neck and a JB jr in the middle. It sounds good, but it's not straty enough. I'm thinking of switching to some regular strat pickups and putting a stratoblaster on it or just getting some hotter strat pickups. I like...

    Thinking about learning a different instrument.

    I've gotten into a bad habit with guitar, where I'm good enough to play most of the songs I like, so instead of practicing important stuff I'll just wind up playing along with songs. I figure if I try learning something else it'll push me out of my comfort zone, and I'll have to learn something...

    Probably a stupid question about cabinets.

    In a couple months im looking at buying a Marshall DSL because I've always wanted a Marshall halfstack. I have a MG cabinet I bought back in the day, and according to Sweetwater, it has Celestion G12-412MG speakers, and a 1960 cabinet has GT12-75 speakers. As someone who has no clue about...

    The Most Rock and Roll Song of All Time

    I was sitting here enjoying a couple beers, listening to music and I had Ted Nugent's version of Johnny B Goode pop up, and even though Chuck Berry stole it from some kid at a high school dance, every time I hear it, I can't help but think it's like the rock and roll national anthem. And it...

    Do you ever have a guitar that sounds perfect...

    But you want to change the pickups so it'll sound different? I have a set of Sigil Berserkers in my Les Paul and they're the best set of pickups I've ever heard, but every now and then I'll be playing something like some Joe Walsh or some Sabbath and I'll be thinking, this sounds killer but...
