    Purchased new guitar, Schecter C-6 Elite

    I purchased a new guitar, a Schecter C-6 Elite. However, I wasn't happy with it, it was an inexpensive guitar, and it certainly played and sounded so-so at best. I ended up returning the guitar. Although I got a very good deal on it, this was one of the very few guitars I purchased that I ended...

    Those of you tech savvy enough to wire your own guitars

    I am not tech savvy, I can't replace my pickups, wire or install pots, or do more than work on my own neck and set action to my liking. How did you learn to do your own tech work. It would be nice to save money, additionally, I know of no techs in my location, just music stores where work is...

    All who buy a guitar just for a nice neck, pick ups and electronics (not name brand) please post.

    After I bought my Gibsons and Fenders and other big name guitars when I was young I realized that there exist some fabulous no name electrics out there, and as I've aged I categorize guitars as "nice guitars" for the simple reason they ARE in fact nice guitars, I no longer buy for the brand name.

    Perfectionism with my guitar collection drives me crazy

    How does one resolve such issues ? I know intellectually it is impossible to play the guitars and keep them in pristine condition, but I can't get over the concerns about my guitars showing signs of wear. It seems that there is really no resolving such a problem.

    Boss Katana 100 1x12- A question.

    Large mail order music stores increasingly adding tax on to total sum of purchase.

    For the first time, today, I ordered a Boss Katana. I was surprised that MF added state tax onto my order. This seems to be somewhat of a recent change.

    Exchanging opinions on decent VERY affordable guitar cases under $89.

    I bought a Silver Creek Dreadnaught Hard shell guitar case for $66 for my Acoustic guitar and these are very well made very protective cases. I would highly recommend them. I have also bought some of Musicians friend $79 cases that are absolute junk. I am thrilled with Silver Creeks cases, and...

    You've most likely seen this interview with VanHalen, but if you haven't it's interesting.

    I found this to be very down to earth, and it got me smiling. What inspired me was thinking about the "What is it like to be 60" thread. This interview took place when VanHalen recently turned 60.
