Thanks for the responses!
It's been years since I've had a guitar with a Floyd Rose bridge so I can't quite recall how much range it affords.
That's very helpful. Awesome to get an answer from John Suhr himself! Sounds like it can go as far as possible if I understand correctly. Once the...
I'm wondering how much range the Gotoh Floyd Rose on a Suhr Modern would have, with the recessed bridge option. Anyone with such a guitar or firsthand experience able to share their thoughts? I'm specifically asking how much you can pull up on the trem (e.g. a major 3rd on the open G string)...
Interested in this as well. My concerns around more practical rather than about tone. I know basswood/maple and mahogany/maple bodies will sound great. But in terms of weight how big is the difference? Also basswood seems softer and dings easily.
Similar experience here. Called to ask for more photos since the one pathetic one online did not offer enough detail. I thought the salesperson would be glad to have an interested customer reach out, but I never got the pics. After a few tries, I simply gave up.
Swapped out for dimarzio air norton and tone zone pickups. Like it better as they have a more classic sound but with a modern edge and definitely enough output. I personally found the stock LF/CL combination a little flat, but I suspect this is because they are voiced for Mesa Boogie amps which...
My vote goes to the first one too. Assume both feel/sound similar.
Been looking at custom 24 models lately. #1 looks like a winner, #2 looks odd and it might be unique but the the risk is that the novelty may wear off.
Very glad to see these guitars being produced. I'm an Ibanez fan and hope they sound and play as well as they look! Always felt there was a bit of a gap in the offerings for super strats with more vintage-oriented appointments e.g. no locking trems.
I've not had good experiences with the...
DiMarzio pickups are great.
I have had a pair of 36th PAFs in my LP for a few years now. Lots of clarity. They are bright enough and provide a bit of that snap you don't always get with LP style guitars. I've been intrigued by the PAF Master and 59 models but haven't gotten round to trying...
I love Dimarzios. Admittedly, I've never tried BKP pickups but I've never had reason to. Conpletely satisfied with Dimarzios.
For the neck, the Area pickups have always sounded good to me. Quiet and clean with the right amount of sting. But I'm more of a humbucker guy and have more experience...
Looking for a good guitar tech in the SF Bay Area. Specifically in south bay near San Jose.
Need to swap pickups in my guitar and want to find someone who knows how to take care of my instrument. Don't mean to be nitpicky but I've seen more than one tech handle my guitars in a cavalier fashion...
I have a '05 LP Faded that I love.
I put a Bobby Lee screwless pickguard on it http://www.bobbyleesignatureseries.com/html/How_do_I_get_one.htm
I put in a Tonepros bridge and swapped out my pickups too for nickel-covered ones; also dropped in some upgraded caps and pots.
As the title says... wondering if anyone has played a PRS SE Torero?
"The SE Torero Electric Guitar from Paul Reed Smith features a double-cutaway solid mahogany body and a maple top faced with a beautiful flame maple veneer. The 3-piece maple neck has a 24-fret ebony fingerboard and a...
I've used them a lot and never had any complaints:
The PAF Joe gets a really nice neck humbucker sound. Clear and warm.
Air Zone in the bridge gives a fat nice rock sound...
