    Do you owe them something? Do Apple need you? I am sad that people need to stand up for a multi billion dollar company...and write a blog about how great it all is for them to charge $200 for a pair of shitty headphones...

    "The human brain is an amazing thing. Amazingly gullible, I mean." Indeed it is Chris! We as consumers can somehow find sympathy and a kin hood with a multi billion dollar company.. They are pushing new boundary's in flogging off overpriced, poor sounding wireless earbuds with a proprietary...

    Iphone 7 Killing the Headphone Jack

    Fair point! Still it seems a little silly that people will defend Apple for removing it.. I will wager that many who do will also swear by a certain guitar lead, and will spend many dollars on quality cables.

    So whats your opinion on Apple music

    I personally, can't wait, to pay money for the rest of my life for something I will never own. Why didn't I think of this before? I long for the day when we can have food subscriptions... And I will have great feeds for a short while.. Please someone tell me they aren't thinking about it...

    Chinese guitar knock-offs... opinions?

    Cheers dude!! My beautiful fretboards will thank you for many a year.. Do you recommend a particular string?? As I said earlier...I have bought strings which deteriorate rather quickly... And I certainly don't want them. "Well, obviously it's not meant to be taken literally; it refers to any...

    Hey, Cheers! I am talking about unfinished fretboard, this is why I am loathe to put any sort of 'product' on it... Does lemon oil cause any sort of discoloration or any other wear on the maple? Also...... love the Python quote!!!! "I mean, if I went 'round, saying I was an emperor, just...

    To tell the honest truth, I personally can't perceive much, if any, difference between string brands. They always sound and feel better when fresh! So every new set is better... Having said that, I did once have a set of cheap as strings that just corroded and f*#ed out within days...so there...

    Any Bare Knuckle specialist ?

    ...Actually.. Having re-read your post. My needs were almost exactly the same as yours, and also going into a 2 humbucker mahogany Ibanez.. They suggested a Coldsweat bridge and a VHII neck. Like I said above... I am so happy with this selection.

    Bare Knuckle Pickups

    Hey Man, I highly recommend you send BareKnuckle an email, describing what guitar they will be going in, and what sound you are looking for. I did just that, and his recommendations were not at all what I thought I wanted. I wanted a Michael Romeo/Nuno bridge and a Petrucci neck. (this...

    Who Wants to Test Some New Firmware? (12.03 Beta 5 UPDATE)

    Axe-Fx as DAC?

    Hey peeps, One thing I noticed about my Axe is how awesome it sounds playing FLAC files through two RCF nx12 sma's. I'm curious how the Axe compares to dedicated DAC's purely for playback? And would you leave it on for hours at a time just to play music through? Also, I feel silly...
