    Favored 7-string pickups and why? I need to find some..

    thanks for sharing! I have never tried any Carvin pickups, even when I had Carvin guitars, they always came with EMG's I think..I never had a "new" one.. I think I Will see what the local music store has and maybe I get lucky and they actually have some 7-string pickups.. I know they are...

    Favored 7-string pickups and why? I need to find some..

    I made a trade and ended up with a new PRS SE 7-string, but the stock pickups are well, at least to my ears, ball-less and "tinny" if that makes sense, and I was hoping for you guys to chime in with what pickups you like in your 7's and why. I have tried Blackouts in a Dinky, but they were...

    PRS SE vs. S2 Custom 24

    i currently have both and also a nice CE22 and I play my SE more than either of the other two. IT is perhaps the finest playing guitar, for me, that I have ever owned. I have owned well over 100 guitars in 30 years of playing. no reason not to buy and cherish and love an SE. The S2 is a...

    Anyone have a Kelly JS32 guitar?

    I have been wanting an "explorer" type guitar, but I prefer 24 frets and hard tails. I know there was that awesome Gibson "Shred X" or whatever, but dang they are expensive "when" you can find one for sale.. I saw the little cheapy JS32 Kelly and it has the "same" neck as my neck-thru Jacksons...

    Guitar Center

    The 2 stores close by me are full of guys that always are very helpful and the manager and assistant managers always go out of their way to make the best deal they can..sometimes it is good, and sometimes it is what they can do. Am glad they are there and hope they continue to be.

    Am I crazy or does the PRS SE Santana....

    i have one of the prototype SE custom 24's, or something..mine has "half moons" and not birds..and it was not "perfect" out of the box..the tuners sucked, the pickups were WAY awful, but DAMN the neck is EVERY BIT AS GOOD as my '86 CE24 was. So, some gotoh's, some EMG's, and **POOF** the damn...

    Those of you who don't like PRS guitars...

    Several people that I spoke with on this subject all had one thing that stood out as a "main" reason they did not really care for a PRS. They all mentioned the small-ish scale. I have tiny little girl hands, so the PRS is AWESOME for me, but I guess for some folks with big ass monkey fingers...

    2012 American Strat just out of the box...not impressed!

    I will get dogged bad on here, but the only Fender I could ever stand was the "HM" strats back in the 80's. Of all the current line, only the EJ "feels" like something I would want to play, but sadly, they are seriously missing some number of frets! hahahaha Hope you get the kinks worked out...

    Fixed Pics! NGD: New Charvel Shed machine! Beautiful flame top too!

    Ywep..it does sound great, but it is very VERY bright sounding, and has nothing but a volume, so I am going to install a tone control of some kind..just not sure what yet, and then put a mini toggle in up closer to the strings where I prefer my pickup selector to be.

    School Me on Floyd Rose

    +1..! In my experience, the cheap "Special" models are junk. I have not seen/played one that was worth having yet. I personally prefer Kahlers to Flyds as they are so much easier to setup and deal with, especially changing strings.

    Fixed Pics! NGD: New Charvel Shed machine! Beautiful flame top too!

    Had no luck selling my Korg X50 so I ended up trading it back to the music store and getting this! Is an amazingly feature packed axe..! Locking tuners, EMG's, and the tech was able to get the 9's absolutely on the deck! IT is really SWEET..!! Beautiful top, awesome abalone looking binding...

    Anyone try any of the Sterling JP50's..?

    Got mine home from being setup by a pro and it plays fantastically..it sounds like a rotten butthole though..it has an Air Norton in the neck and a Super Distortion in the bridge..I don't like either worth a damn after playing several hours. So I have an EMG89R for the neck and an 81TW coming...

    Anyone try any of the Sterling JP50's..?

    This is the "red pearl burst" one..so I guess it is the Indonesia one? It has a DiMarzio Distortion in the bridge and a Air Norton in the neck, or so I am told. It has no scratch that I can find but it has like .12's on it and I took it to the guitar store here locally to let the luthier look...

    Anyone try any of the Sterling JP50's..?

    Found one used with Dimarzio's already in it, not a scratch on it, and DAMN cheap, so was thinking about getting it, but never even seen a "Sterling" before..I know it is the "cheap" version of the EB Petrucci, but from what I saw, it seemed a pretty solid guitar..and for $175 with a case it...

    Your favorite songs to play?

    I usually warm up with the first 5 or 6 songs from Maximum Security by Tony Macalpine, so I guess thru the years, they have become my favorites to butcher..er..I mean play! :)
