1. The Gear Page is run by musicians for musicians. We listen, we learn and if we misstep we are not afraid to do the right thing. We proposed some changes to the Emporiums. Based on feedback from members, we have decided to not go ahead with those changes. However, it has also highlighted that we need some community input into what is working and what is not working for members here. Primarily focused on the Emporiums, we'd like input on your thoughts about TGP and how things work in the Emporiums for you and how you'd improve them. The discussion thread on the is here!

    Hey Guys,
    it's been forever since I've been on, had to re-register!
    David McNaught and I have been working on some pre-production instrumentals. We will eventually be finishing these up with drummer John Robertson.
    Untill then, you can here the pre-production, drum machine versions here.

    http://www.mcnaughtguitars.com/swish/index.html

    There are two tracks on the page:
    1- Latex
    2- Something Strange

    They were recorded with a McNaught Phoenix, Wagner Darkburst pickups, stainless steel frets, and played through a modified Marshall.
    The bass is a Music Man StingRay, David is working on the first McNaught Bass ( i got dibs ) as we speak.

    Both tracks were recorded in the basement (not the name of a studio, I actually mean "the basement". :)

    Dave, Sounds damn good. You'll have to update this when you get a drummer behind it instead of the machine.

    Do you mind me asking who modded the Marshall?

    It was done by Scott Splawn at Splawn Amps several years ago. Scott stays pretty busy with his own amps as well.

    Thanks Sub-D,
    we are very, very new to the home recording scene. We're from back in the time when you saved up all summer to go in the studio and pay a small fortune for a three song demo.
    Lots of homework to do.

    Hey Guitar Guy,
    thanks for the kind words.
    For the Project X music, David will probably be using his Phoenix for most of it.
    We are however, planning on adding soundclips to the McNaught website that will feature a variety of different McNaught shapes, wood combinations, and pickups. There will definitely be some Singlecut tracks on there.
