    Washburn N4 experts... step inside please

    Can anyone tell me what the extra hole on the lower right side of the back cavity is for? I have heard that it may be for a trem blocker. Just trying to get a better idea. I finally bit the bullet and joined the N4 club. I will definitely be installed a d-tuna, just trying to figure out if I...

    Favorite Suhr Strat pickups

    I recently installed a pair of V60LPs in my strat with an SSV+ in the bridge. Absolutely love they way they sound. Granted, I play hard rock on a hot rodded Marshall style amp. The neck V60LP will do Hendrix all day long though.

    NGD Plus NPUD

    Thanks guys! I am really digging the setup. Yes, the Splawn and EVH do sound good together... although I am starting to get major GAS for Friedman SS100.

    NGD Plus NPUD

    Picked up a Sweetwater Fender American Professional Strat last month. Came with a roasted maple neck, rosewood board and an alder body. It came stock with Fender Custom Shop 69 pickups- which sounded good, but I wanted to make this a rock machine. So I picked up two Suhr V60LP single-coils...

    Are younger players turning away from the Les Paul?

    The popularity of the Les Paul comes and goes. Slash was primarily responsible for the last resurgence in the 90s. I love both of my Les Pauls- a Standard and a Classic. They both play great. I also love my Strat and my Charvel Pro Mod. If a player comes along swinging a Les Paul that kids...

    Eric Johnson equivalent Strats?

    I recently picked up a Sweetwater UAS Professional Strat, and have been very impressed with the quality of the guitar. From the roasted maple neck to the impeccable fret work, the guitar is top notch. It does have a very light satin finish on the neck. I have only played one Fender Custom...

    The Gibson Les Paul Classic ... which year(s) is best?

    I have a 2001 that is outstanding. I changed the pots for CTS 500k and did the 50s wiring. Also put in some pickups that were more my flavor.

    Suhr SSH+ and Aldrich pickups???

    I've had both in a Les Paul. The SSH+ has more top end. The Aldrich has a mid range grind that few other pickups have. It has become my go to Les Paul pickup.

    Clapton 24 Nights Tone

    I have always loved Clapton's tone on the 24 Nights album. I know that it's not everyone's cup of tea... but for the sake of this thread, lets just stick with I love this tone...lol! I know that he had a sizable rack setup during this period, but I don't hear a ton of grease on this tone for...

    Should we be buying guitars from mom and pop stores now?

    I would love to show at my local mom a pop store. Unfortunately they only carry Squire starter packs these days.

    Which Shur single-coils to pair with the Aldrich bridge?

    I am in the process of overhauling my strat to make it a rock machine. I will be using a 53mm Suhr Aldrich in the bridge position, and I’m trying to decide on which singles to use in the neck and middle. I want to capture that Hendrix/Trower/SRV vibe with the neck pickup. I was thinking of the...

    Sweetwater Fender American Professional Strat

    Yes, I am aware of the jumbo frets. Those are actually a preference for me. How do the CS69 pickups compare to the Fat 50s or the 57/62s?

    Sweetwater Fender American Professional Strat

    Has anyone bought one of the Sweetwater American Professional Strats? Looking at the one with the roasted maple neck and the CS69 pickups. If so, I would love to hear what you though of the guitar. I am seriously considering a rosewood board model.

    After not being a goldtop fan...after getting one...I've seen the light!

    I absolutely love my 2001 Classic gold top. I bought it in 2003, and really had never thought about owning a gold top before then. Now I cannot imagine not owning this guitar. It is on its second refret, and is my number one guitar.

    To Wrap or Not to Wrap Strings

    If I’m playing 10s in standard tuning, I run them straight through. If I’m in E flat with 11s, I will top wrap to make it a bit easier to play.

    PRS vs ErnieBall MusicMan

    Love both companies. My main gripe with EBMM is the use of tiny “vintage” frets. I can’t stand small frets- which keeps me from buying their guitars. I don’t see the point of spending that kind of money only to have to immediately have to get new frets.

    Shur Thornbucker Plus under high gain? Now with another question...

    I believe you can buy raw nickel covers from MojoTone.com And Pete, please don't think I was dissing your pickups. I think they sound great. They just didn't work for me personally. I am no where near as talented as you are on guitar. So a little extra heat helps me a lot. Lol.

    Shur Thornbucker Plus under high gain? Now with another question...

    Hey guys. The videos being referenced are mine. (very flattering, by the way) The Thornbuckers are very uncompressed pickups. And while listening to the my video of the TB+, I do think they sound very good. I didn't think that they felt good under my fingers for higher gain tones. If you...

    PAF Thread, yes, another one

    Well, since no one has suggested them yet- and they are my favorite PAF style pickups- I'll throw Bare Knuckle Pickups the Mule set in the mix. You can get them in just about any color you want.
