    NGD - Legator N8FP - My Disappointment is immeasurable -_-

    This is kinda weird, but it looks more and more purple as I look at it. More of a red-violet. I guess what I'm trying to say is that it's growing on me or something yeah, I was hesitant due to some of that, but I also found a lot of evidence (anecdotal, some with pictures) or something saying...

    NGD - Legator N8FP - My Disappointment is immeasurable -_-

    The initial "what the fucking hell" is wearing off now. And I can totally refinish it and make it look fantastic just based on what I've been doing to wood with some stains, and it's still an ash body after-all. I'm probably going to take a wire brush to my brand new $950 guitar (lol nut being...

    NGD - Legator N8FP - My Disappointment is immeasurable -_-

    yes I am aware of all that (well, minus the prototype thing). Seriously though, you're coming at me like I'm being unreasonable or ignorant? They are nothing alike, at all. It's practically brown unless I angle it really awkwardly. They still have the same pictures on their site. Here's a...

    NGD - Legator N8FP - My Disappointment is immeasurable -_-

    This is what they sold me vs what I got: They are nothing alike o.O The headstock kinda is... I wanted a vibrant purple guitar and I got one that is barely purple and almost looks fucking brown. It's well-built, seemingly, at least, fret ends are great. The grain is nice, and I can absolutely...

    What is your next guitar/gear purchase gonna be?

    Very likely replacing my Exponent 500 head with a Quad Cortex and power amp. I like the head, but there's just a few quibbles with it that I don't think Darkglass can or will fix, and right now I don't even need a full-blown 500W head (the band I just got into uses a PA for rehearsal and likely...

    Show Me Your Bass!

    Large improvement over the EMG HZs that were in it before. The switch and push/pull pot gives me a lot of sounds, and tbh if used as a drop-tuned baritone guitar it sounds pretty f'ing brutal imo lol The "hifi"/scooped voices are pretty much unusable in that context, though; you literally hear...

    Show Me Your Bass!

    Recently installed Fishman Fluence modern bass in my SRC6 and changed out the cheap black plastic knobs for hardware-matching cosmo black ones Next thing I'm doing to it is probably sanding the "walnut" finish off and staining it black or perhaps black, then sand that back some, and put in...

    The Fishman Fluence Thread

    I just finished installing the 4-string bass modern soapbars in my SRC6. It's a lot of fun, and for funsies it even does "the brutals metals" heavy chugging thing like a champ. Sounds really good in a lot of different settings. The only thing I would have done differently is put a 5-string set...

    Would you choose a 22 fret guitar as your main 7?

    I would, sure. I almost never use frets at that extreme of the fretboard. Meanwhile, all my basses are also 24 fret like wut lol. Now, in my head I think it sounds cool. 24 frets, yeah! MOAR NOTES. But it seems it's mostly old or cheaper guitars that have less than 24 frets. AND WHY IS THIS...

    Best string gauge for drop F? (7 string guitar)

    For funsies (I was in a silly mood) I tuned my 27" 8-string down to D1 on probably a .74 string (it was up at F). It's pretty loose, at the 5th fret I can bend it up to G# lol... I ordered a .095, .090, and have a .084 to test on it, but power chords don't sound wretched with a light touch...

    Best string gauge for drop F? (7 string guitar)

    I just came across this on their FAQ: Why don’t you make “X” gauge string? "We make a lot of different string gauges—over 100 actually—and with all companies there are certain limitations in terms of how many gauges we can keep in stock, fulfill in a reasonable timeframe, and ensure that they...

    Best string gauge for drop F? (7 string guitar)

    +1 to Stringjoy, and just pointing out that as they offer completely custom sets (within their gauges) there's no need to buy an 8-string set and not use a string. They'll send the 7-string set to you in a box printed with "Custom" and the gauges of all the strings. I use them on my 7-string...

    Good bass to give as gift?

    As others have said, Schecters are good even at this price range. I have a Stiletto Extreme 4 from 2012 that is excellent. Definitely a brand that punches above its weight, imo. I would add looking at a Sire Marcus Miller M2. $400, but doesn't feel like it. They did this "rolled fret board"...

    NCD? - Genz Benz Focus LT FCS410t cab

    Yeah, I got the new assembly today and it was literally plug and play, and now I know how to repair the old one so I have a spare:

    NBD - Hot pile of Soviet-era garbage Borisov Formanta

    I actually got this on March 31st, the thread blew up on TalkBass and I didn't want to post it on April Fool's Day hah. First, story time. I bought this the day before Russia attacked Ukraine, got the tracking number and everything. I did not expect to ever see it, and did not even consider...

    Post Your GAS

    I didn't know Brian Welch switched to ESP (shows how much I follow Korn) but his signature is pretty >_> I think it would look nice next to my SC-607 >_> **Edit** It's a 25.5" scale -_- I like the 27" on my SC-607 too much. Pass... I'll just admire it from afar...

    NCD? - Genz Benz Focus LT FCS410t cab

    The bottom. Combined with my Darkglass 1x12, they are The Smol Stack of Doom lol. Somewhere in this cab's ten year history, some no-talent hack butcher its electronics and basically used wire cutters to remove the tweeter from the circuit vs just using the fucking off switch. I've been in...

    Are you perfectly happy with your 7 String?

    I am very happy with my SC-607. I love the lavender purple color, it feels great in my hand (I'm wearing the satin on the back of the neck to a gloss lol), and the 27" scale length really seems to work for it. I see people on YouTube with 7-strings that look really "fat/wide" on the neck and for...
