    New Strat Recommendations

    Must be new. Price: up to $1200 new. $1,500 if there is an overwhelming reason. Certainly would buy a $500 if that’s just as good. 3 Single coils. Strongly prefer American if possible. Neck feel is important I really like the modern C neck found on the Mexican fender performer. I was just...

    Guitars w/ Necks similar to Fender modern C

    I played a fender performer strat recently and I’m about to pull the trigger on a new guitar. Loved the neck, and played great. My only hesitation is that I felt that $750 for a Mexican strat seemed a little much. I am not sure if that is where the market is now or if you’re just paying for...

    People who built Warmoth Guitar with little technical abilities....

    I’m weighing my options on getting my next strat style guitar. I want to get a strat to eventually give to my son. I’d like the quality to be on par with Carvin or American strat. What was your experience the first time you built a warmoth guitar? How idiotproof is it? I am more of a computer...

    Stiff, (preferably not leather) strap recommendation....

    Any brand recommendations? I want to get a couple replacement straps. I don’t like the ones that bunch together or twist up easily that come typically with the ones that designs. I have a levii and Dunlop strap that are nylon but thinish. I’ll settle for those if there isn’t something else...

    Envelope filter preset help - Helix

    I’m new to my helix HX, and I’m having a little trouble dialing in a decent auto wah. There are so many parameters. The treble can get overbearing, and when I try to make adjustments, i remove all the fun, and quack out of the pedal. I just want something I can strum funky rhythm, and possibly...

    HX Effects Question about Volume...

    Thanks. You’re right. It’ll act like volume was set at 5. I have a Princeton reverb. No loop. I guess I’ll get an accentuator at some point. big help. Thanks!

    HX Effects Question about Volume...

    If you used one of the effects as "volume" and defaulted it to, say, 50% volume, and always kept it on, would that act like a global volume setting? Basically, I have a fender reverb that I'd like to set around 4.5-5 to get a natural breakup. I am hoping I can run my guitar through he HX...

    Are there any versatile alternatives to the PRS hollowbody?

    9fingers, I've been on the fence about getting the new version of the M900, Cort m-custom (for some reason I only see them being sold in Europe) Are the f holes chambered or is it more like the prs hb2 where there is just a small block, and the rest is hollow. Overall, I'm just curious whether...

    Trey Anastasio tone - help me get it - pedal order game...

    Any actual guitar recriminations, especially for that clean, airy sound? I'd especially like to see Schecter C1 e/a, and some of the ibanez artcores, like the Awd or fwd series. The Eastman t184 seems like a good option. I've only heard samples on YouTube. Any others?

    EDIGREG's Koa Equator Instruments Standard Build

    I'm not sure how soon I'll be pulling the trigger on my guitar, but keep me posted. Your equator looks amazing so far. I hope to one day get a completely custom guitar. I did a carvin, but there were only so many designs to choose from... Two other quick questions, if the neck is thicker than...

    EDIGREG's Koa Equator Instruments Standard Build

    Congrats on your build. I saw your YouTube channel. Are you just upgrading or was there something about the t184 that didn't do it for you? How was the neck of the eastman, like a strat? I'm am looking at getting an eastman t486. It sounded like the tone was spot on with Treys... Was it not?

    Can someone explain fretboard radius/thin necks?

    Thanks guys. That was very helpful. 12-14", and definitely a thin thin neck for leads/wankery!

    Can someone explain fretboard radius/thin necks?

    Ultimately I'd like a semi hollow/hollow with a neck that's easy to play fast/shred/play notes instead of chords. I read that a 16" or 14" fretboard radius is good for this (my carvin has a 14", & I agree) So I was looking a schecter online that wasn't available at my locL store. It has a...

    Flat neck/shredder Semi-hollow?

    I’m looking for a semi-hollow/hollow guitar with a shredder neck that is smaller than a ES355. My budget is around $1000-$1500 range, but I’d prefer to get a used beater guitar in the 200-600 range, & swap out the electronics/get set up professionally. I’m currently have Schecter c/sh-1...

    Carvin guitars, compared to Fender and G & L

    I wouldn't put them in the mediocre group. I own a HSS Strat version which I use as my workhorse, and a CT-6, which is like a PRS. Very good for the money. Well built, nice finish
