    NGD! Schecter PS-PT Tele!

    Thanks! I appreciate it. Since I just had a baby I have temporarily stopped buying guitars. I feel lucky that my last purchase for now turned out great. As an update, I still really like it, still no flaws. I am considering swapping the bridge pickup, though - it's good for light stuff but...

    Is my strat body a goner?

    Sorry for your (potential) loss. Honestly I don't know, but I do know wood glue is powerful stuff and that guitar bodies are almost always 2-3 pieces glued together. Why can't they glue a crack together? I am not a luthier, just a guy that plays guitar, drinks whisky, and stays up late getting...

    Every time you post that JP I feel even more jealous. You are a bad person and you should feel bad.

    NGD: Suhr Modern Set Neck is Finished!

    Fair enough. I forgot how bad it is in America. Keep fighting the good fight.

    NGD: Suhr Modern Set Neck is Finished!

    Wow man. You know a one-way trip to Mars is estimated by NASA to take 21 months? You could go to Mars, have a nice day in the cold sun, and be just 2 months and a day from home in that time.

    NGD: Suhr Modern Set Neck is Finished!

    I don't have enough patience to wait in line for more than 15 minutes at a restaurant.

    NGD: Suhr Modern Set Neck is Finished!

    That's sick, man. A 12-month wait, though? Did they have to go procure some of the parts from the ark of the covenant?

    Looking for the right Suhr bridge humbucker

    Fair enough. Still, the Gravity Storm bridge sounds pretty much like what you're describing, unless it's still too hot.

    Looking for the right Suhr bridge humbucker

    Me too, honestly. Tried ssv+ and aldrich. The thornbucker looks interesting but honestly Dimarzio just rules. The Gravity Storm is about as good as it gets.

    D'Addario O-Port

    Wait are you saying a company put out a cheap looking plastic guitar gadget for profit rather than as a way to help us guitarists totally enhance the whole guitar experience and make us question how any pro could have lived without it?

    ESP LTD H-1001 sexiest guitar ever?

    I love superstrats. Absolutely adore them. I thought this was a cool guitar like 15 years ago. Then I started buying high-end guitars. Now this guitar looks so cheap to me. Like who is it trying to fool?

    Ibanez now using Meranti

    My j.custom sounds like the 2nd coming of Christ - whatever version of mahogany, maple and ebony they used sure is working well.

    New 2K Fender professional with unleveled frets. Is that to be expected?

    Send it back. You know you will always feel ripped off with this guitar. Get a replacement.

    How is your tone today?

    For my main tones, great. Kemper is a great device. Also rely on a fuzzface a bit for rolled back volume pot cleans.

    Fender Player Series (and Deluxe, and Vintera)

    If this is his first guitar, he will probably play on it exclusively for a little while. If he plays any rock, I really recommend going HSS. Hard to beat, really. I love my SSS BUT I have an HSS that is definitely my most versatile guitar. I also would say that of course playing each guitar...

    Fishman Fluence Open Core - user reviews?

    Had moderns and classics, not open core. Got tired of the tones before long. Same with EMGs. Passives just sound richer to my ears. Nothing wrong with them for certain applications and probably in a mix they would rock. But for playing alone...I couldn't keep them.

    NGD Suhr Indigo

    I usually don't like solid colors, but the neck flame gives it enough character. Looks good!

    Oh I see, AN. I had one before. I thought you were talking about the AZ air zone bridge.
