    Dealbreakers. What are yours?

    NGD: Does this count as a Les Paul?

    Great guitar!!! I had a LTD EC401 and it was amazing. It had the DiMarzio 36th Anniversary PAF pickups in it. I only sold it to buy an actual Les Paul. The ironic thing is that I had to install an identical set of pickups in the LP to get it to sound as good as the LTD.

    NGD - First 7 string!

    Nice guitar. I had a very similar model, RGIR27FE, and I made the guitar shop dress the fret ends before I'd agree to buy it. Phillip McKnight has some great YouTube videos on doing setups and addressing fret sprout.

    What is your next guitar/gear purchase gonna be?

    I bought a used PRS S2 McCarty 594 Thinline in mint condition at Guitar Center. It's on pawn hold though so I can't bring it home until March 4th.

    What is the best

    My Radial Headlight hasn't had those issues. Perhaps I just got a good one.

    What is the best

    I use the Radial Headlight. It lets me go out to 4 different amps and to a tuner. It can also go to 2 amps at a time.

    What is your next guitar/gear purchase gonna be?

    Probably not for me then. My PRS CU24 has the pattern thin which is my favorite PRS neck. My PRS 513 has the wide fat neck (same as the Tremonti SE) which I can handle but I keep thinking about trading it for one with a wide thin.

    What is your next guitar/gear purchase gonna be?

    I'm satisfied with my current gear collection but I always keep my eyes open for cool new stuff. I might get in on the 2nd model from Badlands if the guitar appeals to me. I almost bought the first one which they capped at 50 units. I think it will be a few months before they announce it...

    Badlands Guitars, another youtuber brand

    Keep in mind I was only speculating. I have no real knowledge that Acacia is involved at all.

    Badlands Guitars, another youtuber brand

    I had an Acacia for a while. The build quality and fit and finish were top tier. My only issue was that it was too heavy.

    Badlands Guitars, another youtuber brand

    I like them and I like the concept. I expect them to be really high quality, especially since Phil is personally inspecting them before they ship. He used to own a guitar shop and he's been a guitar repair tech for many years. I contemplated getting in on this one but decided to see how it's...

Scott (1984; the...

    ≈$1k Metal Gig Setup

    I'd go with a Line 6 HX Stomp and a PA speaker. If I absolutely wanted to use a real amp, I'd go for the Iconic combo at your price point.

    Line 6 Black Friday Software Deals

    I got an email from Line 6 this morning and it looks like a great sale on their software. $49 for Native (if you own an HX product) is the best price I've ever seen; it's usually $69 for Black Friday. Here's what was in the ad: Save 50% on the Helix® Native amp and effects plugin, the...

    Show me guitars or guitar gear you've won and where you won them.

    I won a Neumann TLM 49 microphone from Sweetwater during their annual Christmas giveaways in 2014.. It was valued at $1700. I had no use for it so I sold it and used the money to buy a Schecter KM-7, a Polytune 2 and some accessories. A few months later I won an Apogee USB Audio Interface...

    NGD: ESP E-II Eclipse

    I picked this up at the Guitar Center in Reno, NV on Friday for a really good price. It doesn't look like it's even been played other than dirty frets, which look great now. It was set up perfectly so all I did was put on some new strings, clean it and touch up a couple fret ends. It's a 2020...
