    Taylor 618e

    thinking of ordering one of these sight unseen - i have a lot of experience with taylors and sj200s - the idea of a big bodied full strumming sound with crazy dynamics + headroom available, plus still sensitive enough to do fingerstyle on [unlike most sj-style guitars which the top doesn't move...

    Who to Commission a Custom Esquire From?

    i'm looking for relic'd nitro finish, roasted maple neck, rosewood board, painted headstock, probably double bound, left-hand bridge on a righty setup, stainless frets or no deal - not sure about body wood yet, but definitely a one piece body i don't want to do the fender custom shop + all the...

    Dr.Z Nova + Pedals

    tell me about your Nova in general, how do you like the master on it, are you digging the tones you're getting with it? but, also, how is it taking boosts/drives/fuzz? in some of the videos, i've heard some really unpleasant high-treble trash + artifacts, especially that premier guitar vid...

    matchless c-30 (hc/sc/dc) series: how well does it take pedals?

    i see an hc-30 in my future - i've played one multiple times + it is definitely my dream amp [chime-y dirty cleans, a vast array of edge of breakup tones + wicked touch sensitivity are my requirements + the c series does it all in spades] but haven't had a chance to run my...

    WILD FUZZ CONTENT: MAE - Mask Audio Electronics - Maybe?

    just put an order in for one of these bad boys - huge fan of alec's work, both the black math + eldritch blast (collab w/ john of electronic audio experiments) have been mainstays of mine all year for making noise/destroying signals can't wait for this over-the-top riff machine to show up...

    Top Album Lists and Reviews of 2010

    Its the second annual Facebook Top Albums of the Year with me and my friends, so I thought I'd share and see if we could do the same thing in thread format. Short but sweet reviews are a must, otherwise it just turns into list after list of sh*t nobody will listen to. _TJK* My List and...

    Soloway Swan question (Seven string specific)

    Hi there, I've got an LN7 (seen here) and am curious about the string spacing as I am thinking of replacing the pickups. I've dropped Jim an e-mail but know he is busy with a guitar show and some heavy family stuff so I thought I'd reach out to TGP and see if anyone knows the specifics. _TJK*

    Classical Guitar - Nail Care Advice

    Just starting to take my nail grooming more seriously and was curious as to what professionals recommend. I'm not playing a nail destroying repertoire but would like a more finished edge on my nails for smoother attack. Also, how many of you use hoof strengthener and things like that? I...

    William Walton's Five Bagatelles - written for Julian Bream

    Just discovered these pieces recently - considering their popularity I'm surprised I haven't come across them earlier. What amazingly composed music! I'm absolutely enthralled by the tone (mood), movement and application of technique in all 5 parts. I'm ordering the sheet music as soon as I...

    (Help!) Serial Composition for Guitar (Help!)

    I've been studying 12 Tone/Serial Composition for the last year or so and have found a severe lack in material for guitar recital (solo/duet pieces specifically). I have recently found out that Denis ApIvor saw this "lack" and wrote a book specifically for serial composition on guitar, which...

    My CD Order: Get turned on to some new music!

    So my CD Baby order showed up today and I'm so stoked because it has been stuff I've wanted for the last couple of months but had to refrain from picking up. I've had to cut my album purchasing back a fair bit because it was getting out of control for my financial situation ($400 a month and a...

    New Adam Rogers: Sight

    New trio disc on Criss Cross Jazz, had no idea it was in the works. I usually enjoy his small ensemble stuff more than his trio work but from the clips, Patitucci, adds plenty of harmonic counterpoint to hold my interest. Equal number of covers/standard to originals on it as well. Thought...

    Anyone into Richard Pinhas?

    ...Just recently discovered him... amazing French guitarist inspired by Fripp and Eno equally (as well as Phillip Glass). His modern output, Metatron and Keio Line w/Merzbow especially, are fantastic. He loops incredible dream-like textures on guitar and synth adding to them over time until...

    Cocobolo Neck

    ...Just curious if anyone has a guitar with a solid Cocobolo neck and fretboard... one piece or multiple...etc I was thinking the tone might be just what I'm looking for, I've tried an Indian Rosewood neck with Brazilian board, and the harmonics on it were crazy; I like the way Cocobolo...

    Fuchs Clean Machine

    I've seen a few dealers with them now but have yet to hear very many first-hand experiences with them, and Andy still hasn't posted any clips on his site - minus the Tomo tracks from NAMM. Anyone bought one or had a chance to play one for a bit? What did you think of it? _TJK*
