    Does the output jack need to be replaced after removing some EMG's?

    Does the output jack need to be replaced after removing some EMG's?

    Thank you for the information. They emailed me to let me know they can look it over for me and fix/adjust anything wrong there. The information each of you provided will provide me with questions for them as well so thank you for providing it for me :)

    Does the output jack need to be replaced after removing some EMG's?

    They have done some quality work in the past but the pandemic had increased their workload there by a lot (they said it had more than quadrupled), and I found out the owner who usually does all of the work for me was on vacation during this time so they might have rushed everything to meet my...

    Does the output jack need to be replaced after removing some EMG's?

    I had brought them four guitars for some work/mods and they had just finished all of them except for the PU replacement so I think they might have rushed this last one since I was headed there to get them and they realized all the electronics needed to be changed for passive PU's (they had just...

    Does the output jack need to be replaced after removing some EMG's?

    I had paid a guitar repair shop to remove some EMG's (EMG-81 and EMG-SA) from my guitar and install some passive pickups (DiMarzio CrunchLab Bridge and Bare Knuckle Impulse Single Coil). We are not able to try the guitars out there due to their understandable pandemic precautions but I had...

    FS Bare knuckle pickups (low prices)

    You should provide pictures of the pickups since there are a lot of different versions/styles/looks for them. I wanted to see if any of them would compliment the pickups I have on my guitars. I wish you had the Painkiller bridge as well :)

    FS FOR SALE: AXE FX ULTRA, $579.00. ORIG PKG++

    I had helped a friend by dialing in his Ultra when he purchased one two years ago. I quickly remembered why I liked the one I sold many years before and I ended up purchasing 3 of them myself shortly afterwards :) I did end up selling/trading two of them last year since I realized it was...

    Static Crackle Guitar Noise Problem

    After recording my electric guitar (emg 81 pickups) through high gain amp modelers or software amp sims there are high end crackling static sounds on all of my tracks. I have used both the AxeFX III and Scarlett 4i4 and made sure my guitar DI’s were clean and clear beforehand. It is only when I...

    Cygnus Question .......

    I had wondered if the power amp modeling being disabled would affect the new tone/feel of Cygnus enough to not feel/hear much of a difference so I tried it with headphones (and turned the PA modeling back on) and it still sounded/felt like Ares, however, I did update the firmware again and there...

    Cygnus Question .......

    Yeah, I have been pretty happy with the Ares tone but I was curious to hear the changes that had been discussed/mentioned in here. I waited until last week to finally do the firmware update and when there wasn't any real change then I figured that either I needed to do something more or there...

    Cygnus Question .......

    Hey @pauly, I think the firmware didn't completely update the first time since I had tried it again as you suggested and it does sound like a different firmware version now!! The first time I did the update I had noticed that when I had opened the FM3-Edit and things were resyncing, the...

    Cygnus Question .......

    "Any suggestions?" was the question regarding my statement of "I was expecting a change in tone and feel since I was going from Ares to Cygnus, however, I really didn't notice anything different from Ares to Cygnus" (I was hoping to get some suggestions on how to get the change in tone and feel...

    Cygnus Question .......

    I had updated my FM3 to the FW 4.00 and I had uploaded the new presets based upon the Cygnus firmware. I was expecting a change in tone and feel since I was going from Ares to Cygnus, however, I really didn't notice anything different from Ares to Cygnus and I usually notice them right away...

    Guitar pick harshness

    Where can you purchase these esseti picks? I came across them at NAMM about 4 years ago and I found they are really GREAT sounding, however, it would seem like you can only purchase them directly from the company (the site is in Italian, I believe, and they are pretty expensive).
