LA Music here in Canada...It was my first purchase from this company and I just want to say I have never experienced this from a supposedly "reputable" music store.
Following many days of not getting any assurance when the guitars would ship, I finally received them yesterday. One of them came...
First off let me say I am no where near even approaching amateur luthier status...just a bit handy and somewhat adventuresome and/or foolish. I thought I would share at least my lessons learned.
What a roller coaster, but I am actually anxious to try this effect again with different...
Brief & Accurate Description of gear/guitar:Excellent condition guitar. Only issues are some minor pick scratches and wear on the satin finish. While I know this is relative, its definitely one of the more "perfect" guitars I have ever played. I just don't play 8 strings as much as I thought...
So, last year I got a DC800 and it ended up being pretty much the best guitar I have owned in terms of fit/finish/ergs/sound/playability. This year I decided to get a 6 string to match it with pretty much the same specs. Which were:

I was inspired by Cataclysm Child's DC800s and this is what came out, with some minor changes of course.
Streaky ebony fingerboard
Satin all over
I havent had a chance to play it yet (Kids driving me crazy)...
Shout out to Mcbonez for a great transaction. Despite some confusion with Paypal, he was/is a great guy to deal with.
I had a Lundgren M7 and Dimarzio Blaze in my all mahogany Carvin 727 and the sound was great but a bit "dark". I am very happy with the coldsweats, extremely clear with an...
Gear/Guitar Wanted:Cold Sweat, Miracle Man, Holy Diver, Painkiller. Not interested in aftermaths. For some reason they are quite harsh in my guitar.

When I first pulled it out of the box and inspected it, I was skeptical because there were a few minor paint finish flaws (Black smudging on the neck binding) and it appears there was some weird sanding around the pickup selector. Despite the strings looking new, they sounded "dead" when I...

I wanted a simpler layout on my guitar since I dont use coil splitters...ever, same with the tone knob. In my other 727, I actually removed the tone and put the volume in its place because my picking hand always bumping up against it. A small fixable annoyance.
I have another CS4 that is all...
I got this yesterday afternoon after paying way too much in brokerage and taxes.
I gotta say I was kinda skeptical of this one at first, the neck dive just killed any enjoyment of playing it. I had to move the strap button to the bottom horn and now its actually really comfortable and...
Well, it finally got here and whoa is this thing a monster! Large and pointy! Thanks to Harris for the great trade, I have no regrets.
Plays extremely well, very comfortable, balanced and no dive. Somewhat bright sounding, very clear defined tone. The only other...
Ok let me first say that I went into this thinking I was gonna do the whole picstory thing on the conversion, but step after step I kept making stupid mistakes. Keep in mind that it is not yet complete and I may just completely redo it, frankly its a miracle I got this far.
