    Big Wreck live tour .. but for the sun

    Hey Big'Uns, I can see myself in your video! The show was amazing. If you're in doubt, go see it!

    Does anyone prefer the PRS SE or S2 over the Core line?

    For now, S2 because there's no core or SE Vela...wish they would change that!

    My Echopark Guitars Nightmare

    Maybe I'm insane - always thought bridge pickups were a smidge longer to account for the angle.

    My Echopark Guitars Nightmare

    Expectations vs. reality - neck twist

    This is the plan at the moment - I'm sending it to SF Guitar Works for a plek job. It may seem like overkill (any maybe it is), but I want to get the frets leveled with the least amount of material removed. I think the truss can be adjusted so that there's some backbow on the bass side and...

    What's this beat-up Charvel?

    I'm gonna pass - it's listed at 275 on Tucson Craigslist. I'm always in the market for a cheap decent floyd guitar but this one isn't blowing my skirt up. Thanks for the tips everyone!
