    Hyrdo dipping that ISN'T a swirl pattern

    Oh yeah there ain't no way your getting anything nice with those conditions. I've been struggling here at Xotic trying to navigate spraying nitro in the cold. Guess we need a climate controlled booth eh lol

    Hyrdo dipping that ISN'T a swirl pattern

    The reason it looks like a swirl isn't necessarily because they swirl the guitar in there. Think about it, you're lowering the guitar body into the paint, the paint is going to move on the body and... what's a good word. Smear? Sure lol, but yeah having the guitar submerged, putting paint on the...

    Schecter Banshee Mach 7 Blasphemy

    So, got a Mach 7 a while back and it rips, killer guitar! I work for Xotic California building vintage inspired S and T shape guitars. Everything is painted with nitro so I figured screw it, lets refinish this badboy. This thing is DUNKED in poly like all new guitars are, I already got most of...

    Lundgren M7 VS. Seymour Duncan Jupiter

    Well I recently found out that the Jupiter 7 is only available through the custom shop and it's definitely different output wise compared to the six. Output numbers aren't everything but the 6 is 14.2k and the 7 is 17.8 which is a big difference. Regardless, the 6 was fuckin gnarly. I had a...

    Schecter Banshee Mach 7

    Damn that's frustrating. I know the feeling I've had a few of those where I'm super excited to get it in my hands, it's been hyped up and it just falls short of the expectations. Fortunately, like I said it has all the right fixins to make it killer it just might take a little work. Definitely...

    Do/would you baby a "relic'd" guitar?

    Nah, I've owned a few and I like how they get even more beat up. I like the beat up look so much I stripped and refinished my ESP Phoenix, left it un-relic'd and decided to get after it at work like a damned madman but I don't care. I'm never selling this thing, I've seen maybe three legit MIJ...

    Jackson/Charvel Owners Club

    Some slick stuff in here! I have a 90's Jackson Soloist pro that I got in pretty bad shape. Truss rod nut was completely stripped, frets were wrecked, fretboard all chewed up. Got a stainless refret, new schaller baseplate, and some shitty paint job for fun with a legit military octane stencil...

    Looking to get into something in LA area

    Y'all, I'm a small time studio and gigging guitarist but I'm tired of playing for pop bands, so tired of it lol. I have no connection to the metal scene out here, it seems kinda small but idk, I've been here for like two years and haven't really even seen the scene. If anyone out here has...

    Suggestions for next build? (Charvel vs LTD vs Warmoth)

    It's the 6115 fret, medium jumbo peaked. It has a triangular shape goin on, super sick. I was playin it last night, guess it's not the height of a jumbo, jumbo's are .118 these are .108 but it's still rad. They just feel really good because there's a very small area the string touches

    Suggestions for next build? (Charvel vs LTD vs Warmoth)

    Woah I had no idea about that. He seemed like a super chill nice guy when I talked to him. That's a shame, his builds look wild and there aint too many people doing the crazy explorer/kelly thing these days

    Suggestions for next build? (Charvel vs LTD vs Warmoth)

    You can also check out Lef Custom Guitars on instagram. He does bonkers builds but started offering unfinished builds as well. He quoted me 1000 straight for a neck through seven string explorer shape with ss frets. Frets come leveled and ready to go, you just gotta put on the finish and get the...

    Suggestions for next build? (Charvel vs LTD vs Warmoth)

    So I build a Warmoth soloist recently (22 frets cuz... well I kinda regret not going 24 now, whatever). Roasted alder body, hss, roasted flame maple neck and board with SS frets, top mounted gotoh floyd, and an aged nitro metallic sea foam green finish. Total 80's shredder. It fuckin rips. I do...

    Have you ever been disappointed in a band after you saw them live?

    Here's a different take on the question. I'm a gigging guitarist (In LA) and I get asked to play with pop artists (odd because my instagram is all metal for the most part) but I get sent the music and I say "yeah that'll work, they sound good, not much guitar in here but maybe i can do some cool...

    Pickups don't matter?

    Not gonna read though hundreds of replies but here's my take. Glenn is just making money by causing controversy, it's pretty whack in my opinion. He claims pickups make no difference and demonstrates it with a real ugly tone, like an objectively bad one in my opinion (guess that makes it...

    Lundgren M7 VS. Seymour Duncan Jupiter

    Hey yall! So I've got some M7's in my Schecter Banshee Mach7 and they are definitely sick but they have this super intense cocked wah thing that I don't really vibe with. They are great for ignorantly low tuning but I want something that doesn't feel so...unnatural. I had a set of SD jupiters in...
