    "Amp in the room" tone doesn't matter. Or does it?

    Same here, I'm not in a band or recording right now (and don't really have the time or desire to do so). Amp-in-the-room is all I got!

    Unpopular opinions on gear

    I love those tones, too. I really love their Astronomy (B.O.C.) cover from that as well.

    Dealbreakers. What are yours?

    I'm actually headed in the opposite direction currently, three of my most recent purchases have Nitro. Most of mine are still poly, but I'm starting to like nitro better.

    New Metal Music Thread

    I'm pissed that I got rid of almost all of my CD's. Better sound quality, and I miss having the proper album sleeve, liner notes, artwork et al. Neither of our cars have CD players now though....

    Squier Paranormal Baritone - Cheap 27" Ripe for Modding?

    Maybe go on the lighter side and see if it works, D'addario and others make an 11-56 set that would probably be good with the long scale. They put 14-68 on there from the factory and they definitely do not feel good.

    Which wire is best, in your opinion?

    Cloth push-back wire is the best I've used. It's really easy to work with, holds it shape well (as in won't immediately want to spring back off the lug you're trying to solder to, or whatever), and the "push-back" feature versus having to strip the wire every time is really nice. And it's...
