    NGD - well, sort of

    Eddie’s passing last October spurred me to start another Frankenstrat project. I did a 79 non-Floyd version about a decade ago which I never really took to. Am still waiting for my body and neck from Warmoth so decided to test my replication skills on a cheap set first. Had hoped to finish the...

    wow...(pat martino content)

    being only a cursory fan of jazz, i have only one album by pat martino (el hombre) and have only listened to it a couple of times. but recently i chanced upon the following two videos which had me downloading them into my iphone and watching them over and over again. all i can say is i will soon...

    well it only took me 26 years...

    to shed that "i'm not worthy" feeling. don't get me wrong, i'm no closer to being able to play like him than 27 years ago (sadly) became aware of steve morse in 89 and ever since i saw his music man on the oct 89 issue of guitar player magazine, i have always pined for one but never felt i...

    advice needed for 2 volume 1 tone on 3 pickup guitar

    hi all, i'm hopeless at understanding wiring diagrams and as such simply follow the wiring diagrams to the t. i'm thinking of re-wiring my ibanez at10p (the low end andy timmons) to get 2 volumes (1 for the neck+middle and 1 for the bridge) and 1 master tone. on searching the intrawebs, i...

    can't decide between jackson and ibanez

    am looking to get an inexpensive superstrat. was ready to spring for a jackson adrian smith sdx when i realised that ibanez had recently released a cheaper version of satriani's 24-fret signature: js140. have been a big fan of joe for many years now so the js140 is very enticing despite the...

    so where are these kids taking lessons from?

    was looking for youtube vids to pick up some nuno stuff and same across this.. am impressed that she made it looked so effortless..
  10. sundance_kiddsg


    was surprised that my better half allowed this.. i guess a midnight airport pickup favor has its benefits. never really an acoustic player even though i started out on one. but the martin d18 is a nice way of getting back into the unplugged world. the setup is immaculate, no fret buzz at all...

    time waits for no man i guess

    over the weekend, i had my 6-year old princess in my car when “i want to hold your hand” came on my mp3 player. as she was singing along with the song, my wife commented that my daughter was into oldies. it then dawned on me that songs by the fab four are considered oldies to me too...

    diy mfc101 labels

    having suffered a fairly painful paper cut on my left index putting me out of commission guitar-wise, decided to work on something i have been meaning to for some time now. - printed switch names on glossy label paper and stuck it onto a magnetic sheet; - pin marked to guide hole punch; -...

    who here loves their jobs?

    the responses to fabio's thread on being self-employed got me thinking. i am always envious of friends or people i know who are making a living out of doing things they love or have genuine interest in. personally i don't particularly fancy my job. the only thing that drags me out of bed is...

    momentary scare when axe fx screen went blank during usb recording

    not sure if this post goes here... i was doing some recording via usb when all of a sudden, the recording software popped up a window indicating that there was something wrong with the device. i looked up to see my axe fx front panel displaying just a green screen with the output 1 clip light...

    anyone here don't keep their modeling mode at "authentic"

    and if you do, what sort of amps do you deviate from it (clean or mid gain or hi gain)? just curious if this feature is used much.

    well, it's been a bank breaking month... the rasmus is about two years late; and an even odder acquisition at this point in time when guthrie is no longer with suhr.. wasn't really expecting to get it as i have never considered getting a rasmus if i can't spring for a suhr (much like the...

    ngd: charvel wild card #7

    just couldn't resist the lure, especially knowing that these japanese charvels are a thing of the past (or so i heard) whilst the neck seymour duncan stk t1 sounded great, the jb in the bridge was a tad too high output for me, making it rather harsh sounding. moreover, the volume difference...

    the cameron ccv is a nice amp

    this one was never on my radar as i tend to lean towards fenders and marshalls when dialing up amp tones. happened to chance upon this old video and decided to give it a whirl. i really like the dynamics on this one. although, not sure why pete's amp sounded more gainy than what i can get...

    some weeks ago, i saw this in a store window and since then, each time i see it, it seemed to be beckoning me towards it. i finally yielded to the siren's song and here she is. i am so going to be in trouble if the missus ever finds out i've gotten another guitar in a span of six months..

    What's your fx chain like?

    just curious to see if you guys have a standard signal chain you tend to base your patches on. now that axe edit is back in business, was wondering if you guys care to display your grid layout for others (and i) to draw inspiration from. mine's pretty basic run of the mill stuff, the only...

    switching presets glitchy when axe edit on

    when i rotate the value knob to switch presets while connected to the pc with the axe edit open, i keep getting glitches (sound dropouts) sometimes the front panel will go into edit mode on its own. all's okay if i exit the axe edit. same thing if i switch presets via the mfc101. is this normal?

    my new pedalboard

    well, sort of... started making cutouts of my stompers some time ago to plan my pedalboard layout (i have too much time on my hands, i know) this helps me figure out what size board i need before i pop by the wood shop. just waiting for the tone freak to arrive before i set this up for real.

    interesting find - eqs at zero on brit pre sounds pretty good

    after watching the recent joe bonamassa rig rundown video where his tech was describing how joe has one of his jcm2000 set to clean but with all eq knobs set to zero except the mid at 2, i tried the following on the brit-pre amp: - dime the drive knob; - set all eqs including presence and...

    3-pin midi sufficient for fw updates?

    i had a custom panel done ala vafam. noted that the 5-pin midi connector has only pins 2,3,4 wired. i read that the axe fx/mfc101 needs all 5 pins for the tuner and tempo functions to work. as i use the cat5 cable to connect my mfc and the midi connector will only be used for mfc firmware...

    axe fx 2 with new dsl40c

    i recently got myself the relatively new marshall dsl40c cos i've always loved the dsl50 head i have but needed something a little more compact. just for shits and giggles, i plugged my axe fx 2 into the dsl's fx return (with the axe fx power amp and cab off) and really liked the tone i am...

    how is your mfc101 currently set up?

    the mfc101 is amazing

    finally gave up the struggle and got myself the mfc101, in anticipation of controlling scenes in the (hopefully soon) fw9. thought i had the bases pretty much covered with my ground control pro but having just set up the mfc101 (thanks to katsukuri's well laid out video instructions), i now...

    are certain amp models meant to have low volume levels?

    i was always under the impression that double pressing the bypass button will reset the amp parameters to their baseline default settings. when i did this with the new deluxe tweed model, the volume level is very low compared with other clean models (deluxe verb, double verb, etc) the master...

    there're simply no compromises with this thing..

    after reading the posts on advance amp parameters, i recently started trying out making adjustments to the master, comp, speakers, dynamics, input trim, sat, sag, xformer parameters and man, i'm really stoked with the effects i'm getting. the effect on the player's feedback has to be felt to be...

    advice needed: anyone else getting pops when engaging their drive blocks?

    i started using the drive block with my clean amp block (eg running a zendrive into a double verb) and notice a loud pop whenever the drive block is engaged. the noise is not apparent when running the drive block into overdriven amp blocks (eg no popping when running into an overdriven...
