    N(to me)PD! TC Nova Drive

    I know this is an older thread, but I was searching to see if someone was asked the same question as me. Well, I know you didn't ask this question, but your wish is basically my question. How can a company who made the nova system and g-system, end up with the product line they have today? I...

    Is there such a thing as a "collectible Shredder Guitar"?

    And there was also the original Schon guitar -- made by Jackson (and later Larrivee i believe).

    where you buy your guitars?

    Wherever I can, brick and mortar stores, TGP, ACF, reverb, ebay, craigslist, dealer websites. I do like to play the guitar in person, if it is a relatively common guitar, even if i have to pay a bit more. For less common or used guitars, often it has to be unplayed, typically when I do buy a...

    Favorite Solid Color for Strat with Maple Fretboard and White Pickguard?

    Olympic white looks great to me in this combo. I have this 89 wine red american standard, I always liked the color combo, but not as much as oly white.

    Guitar/gear game changer… what was yours?

    Zoom h4n handheld recorder, about six years ago. Any handheld recorder would probably have done it, but at the time, and even now, the features on the h4n are quite nice. Recording your practice regularly and listening critically, revealed a lot of areas I could improve on, that I don't...

    What gear are you getting for the Holidays?

    Awesome mic, after i moved to a 906 i wonder how i ever made it with a 57. I have my eye on a acoustic, that I am on the fence about, trying to forget about actually. But really have nothing else on the gear list for the near future. But I'm still super excited to play the guitars I already have!

    How many different Strat builders do we need?

    Well, I don't think it is greed, with all the competition and choices, I don't think these builders are pulling it in. Maybe I am wrong. But I suspect these builders are passionate about guitars and love what they do.

    Sold Mid 80's "Dallas-Era" Schecter PT (Eminence front!)

    This is another guitar that is a GREAT player, but I have not focusing on electric all that much the past several years. This guitar has served me very well, and really deserves a good home where it will be played. These were based on the original Schecter PT that Pete Townshend...

    UPS ruins another beautiful guitar

    I'm not going to speculate on all the particulars, but I can feel your disappointment in a guitar being damaged like that. If it makes you feel any better, I had a similar break recently in an acoustic headstock, my local shop did an great job on the repair, and I never even notice it now. It...

    Old strat pickups - individual weak magnets noticed

    Interesting. How much "quieter" are particular pole pieces? I ask, because this happened to me, the first string pole piece in the neck pickup of a set of lace sensors. From about 1994. In my case, that pole piece was almost dead. But I just replaced the entire pickup. But it is possible...

    Yamaha Revstar?

    Couple issues ago in the UK Guitarist mag, there was a big write up on the revstar. They based a lot of the design on older Japanese street bikes of the 60's. I recently tried the entire lineup including the higher end Japan model, at a show here. Was really impressed, but I have to say I...
