    4 Channel High Gain Head

    I am looking at getting a new amp. My needs, outside of sounding good and work properly, are that it have four channels (clean, a bit of dirt, heavy rock, and metal). I am looking at the Marshall JVM 410, Egnater Tourmaster, and Blackstar's Series One 1046L6. I have played through all three and...

    Carvin V3m control

    It was either here or the amp forum to post this....sorry. I have a Carvin V3m amp and a t.c. electronic Nova system effects unit. I would like to have amp channels change as I change patches on the Nova. The V3m IS NOT midi compatible. The only solution I have found was getting a VooDoo Labs...

    dulling the finish

    CAUTION!!!! There are some images that may cause some viewers undue stress and feelings of anxiety. So I got an Epiphone Prophecy for a great deal, and I wanted to try knocking down the finish a bit. The ultra high gloss looks great, but I thought a mate/muted finish would be cool. A few things...

    I got a couple of new Epi's this summer. For my birthday I got myself a Florentine. The faded black was hard to find, but Craig's List came through. Of course my wife, much to my surprise, got me a Schecter Hellraiser for my birthday. She new I was in the market for the Florentine, and...

    Another Iommi NGD!

    Well I didn't want to feel left out. I have been eyeing these for a few weeks. And only after getting mine did I even bother to look on here for any others. Pics I got this two days ago, And I must say that I love it. The tone is thick. The neck pickup sounds as if the tone knob is down to...

    Strat switch issue

    Working on an off brand strat style guitar. The switch needed replacing. I did not realize until I tried to install new switch that the spread on the mounting holes on the switch, and subsequently the pick guard, are narrower than what I believe to be the standard 40mm. Would love to get a...

    I hate beans!

    Kidney Beans that is. These are the Hipshot/Grover buttons. They fit PRS SE tuners as well. Tuning is more accurate, tone is is fatter and crisper, and it helps me play faster.:naughty:

    Need help ID-ing Strat

    I know that this is a Les Paul site, but I don't want to join the Strat forum. They seem weird. And I KNOW that there are some strat savvy dudes/dudets here. This guitar was gifted to me. A buddy, who is fat with guitars, said, "I don't play this one enough. It needs to be played. If I give it...

    H.R. Giger Destroyer

    I got this for what I believe is an awesome price. I Had been a fan of Giger's work for a long time. I would see these VERY rarely online. This one showed up at my local SamAsh. I emailed Ibanez about it. I got a quick reply, but not much info. There seems to be all kinds of "guesses" as to...

    Ngd prs se

    I can not understand how PRS is able to build such a quality piece of kit for such little money. The Korean plant is doing stellar work. I may be mistaken, but I believe that I read that the SE model is "touched up" at the Maryland factory....Anyhow, check it!
