    How many guitars do you have? How many is too many?

    I have 6, I need a nice acoustic but I have all of my bases covered for what I do with what I've got. I used to collect , I was up to 24 back in 2010, I sold them all off slowly over the years if they were guitars I would not gig with

    What guitar is haunting you?

    I owned it and sold it to fund a BRJ 7 that was pretty special in it's own right , but this one had something else going on with it. Incredibly easy to play. Early J-custom 8527 -BLK

    Do you like 7 string guitars?

    I actually yanked them and put in Bareknuckle Boot camp True grits. the Paf=7's sounded great at home, in a band mix it sounded like I was playing a 7 string strat, very thin. I'm not in love with the True Grit bridge anymore either, this guitar has tons of high mids, They work for classic rock...

    Do you like 7 string guitars?

    I love them, between 2010 and 2015 I only played 7's. (turned into a Nevermore freak) Now I have an Ibanez RG752AHM that I adore, it plays great but the band I'm in is all classic rock stuff so I never really get to use it to it's potential. I tend to play very differently on my 7 than I do on...

    two MIJ charvels a WildCard#4 and a Socal that I've turned into a Charvel "Adrian Smith" and a Trans Black SL-1 to go with my Trans Black SL2H that I've been looking to get for a few years now. Actually looking to move the wildcard now as it's kind of redundant.

    Has the used guitar market gone nuts?

    I follow Jackson soloists on Reverb and they all seem to be priced 25-50% higher than what they were selling for 6 months ago. And for the most part they are all just sitting. I scored a couple of MIJ charvels at reasonable prices but I had to move quick to get them. $2200 for an SL1 that...

    I just took delivery of a Charvel WildCard #4 and I want to upgrade the floyd on it. it holds tune fine so I'm not going to drop the $200 and swap the entire trem (yet anyway) Has anyone done this on one of these Charvels? StewMac says the 37MM block is the one to use for recessed trems I don't...

    Buying Guitars online, without trying first????

    I've bought and sold a ton of guitars on Ebay and Reverb. I try to buy at a price where if it doesn't work out I can move it along without taking a loss. I've had several Jackson SL1's that I've done that with. I have an SL2H that is my holy grail in terms of play-ability and have been looking...

    someone near me has a Carvin string for sale that has a black limba body and neck with a maple fretboard I have no idea what this would sound like through a marshall JVM, but it looks sharp I'm tempted to go check it out as I've owned a Carvin 7 in the past and really liked it.

    How should you deal with a low-baller at the point of sale?

    don't blink, I had a guy drive in from Albany New York last week to buy my Axe Fx II rig (i'm in Boston) I already offered the package at a ridiculous price and he said he was going to offer me a $100 less. I told I'd hate for him to drive all the way out here for nothing. I state a price...
