    Strobe tuner recommendations

    Hi Guys, I'm looking for a decent tuner in the $150-200 range. I know I'm not going to get the big boy Peterson strobe tuners so I'm wondering if something like the Peterson StroboPlus is good enough (see pic)? Right now I use the strobe feature on my Sabine rack tuner and it's decent but 1)...

    Carvin FR Nut Replacement

    My Carvin DC727 has a licensed floyd with the optional floyd clamping nut installed. I tuned my guitar to A standard, and I use very thick low strings. It is a disease. Anyways, the lowest string is the problem - a 70 gauge string. The problem is that the nut slut is not slotted wide enough...

    NGD: Carvin DC727

    So if you've been reading the Kiesel thread I had a bit of an upset with the Ibanez RG565 I ordered that came in with major cracks in the finish. Sent it back and noticed a Carvin for sale that I couldn't stop looking at. I can always buy a 500-series RG, but IMO when a nice Carvin/Kiesel pops...

    NGD: Sunglasses required

    Posted about this earlier in the week but it just showed up today. First of all - this is the first guitar I have EVER received brand new in the last 25 years that required absolutely zero setup. I'm talking someone fully set this up to the point of turning a wrench makes it buzz. Someone did...

    Debating between a few pickups/sets

    Hey guys Long story short, my Ibanez rg565 is showing up today. I already know I'll change the pickups, I've had them before and they aren't my thing. So I'm planning to buy some new ones. HS config for pickups. First off - no actives. I have them in two guitars and I much prefer passive...

    Can't decide between these... 80's inspired

    So I'm buying a new guitar in the next few days and I'm really stuck between two models: RG550 (roadflare red) and RG565 (orange). I've had a 1992 purple RG550 before, and it was an excellent guitar. From what I know of the Genesis models, they're comparable except the neck is different a...

    Refretting Les Paul, SS vs Nickel

    Hey guys I have a 1975 Gibson LP Custom that a few people have seen before, the yellow beast. Anyways, the frets have been dead for a very long time. They're completely flat to the board up and down... So a refretting is in order. Recently all the guitars I've liked have had SS frets. I...

    Switch issue on two guitars

    So about a month ago I had two back to back NGDs, an Ibanez s6570q and schecter c7 SLS Elite. Both came with the same switch issue. It was weird so I actually had to rule out my setup. Basically both switches have a problem where output completely cuts out unless I wiggle the switch a little...

    NGD (2 of 2): Ibanez S6570Q

    Hey guys. I was fortunately able to simultaneously buy the schecter in my other ngd post and trade my Jackson WR7 for an Ibanez prestige at the same time. So I have my second NGD in two days. And my wife tells me it's my last for awhile... We'll see. First, this thing looks gorgeous in the...

    NGD (1 of 2): Schecter C-7 SLS Elite

    So first of my 2 NGDs, the other is tomorrow. I've always wanted one of these, always loved the look of them. But I hated schecter in the early 2000s. I remember picking up the Hellraiser and the neck was a baseball bat like my Les Paul. However, a couple years ago I got a KM7 mkiii that blew...

    Feedback on 7th String

    I recently had my Jackson fret levelled, it plays infinitely better than when I bought it. I noticed when playing in my amp, the first few frets (7th string) have a bit of feedback pretty instantly if I pick them with no palm muting. I figure it's probably just barely fretting out somewhere...

    DIY Fret Levelling Advice

    Hi Guys, My Jackson WR7 are definitely off from the factory. I've identified a few high spots. I do all my own tech work, however I've always been nervous about touching frets. I think now might be the time. I figure since it's only a couple spots and the frets are all brand new, this might be...

    Tips for learning insane vibrato

    I'm a sucker for guys with wide crazy vibrato, and while I've improved my vibrato a lot over the years for strings I pull down on, my vibrato on the strings I push up on (high E, B) isn't so great. Are there good practice techniques to improve vibrato? Should I just go really slow and dedicate...
