    NGD: Blue Powder Pia

    Hello Ello All, Picked up a Blue Powder Pia, so far, zero complaints. Plays well, very comfy, just an all-around solid guitar. A bit hard to capture the color without overexposing it. Looks great in person to my eye anyway: Damn high res pic limits...🤣

    Ibanez LB1-VL

    I just bought Lari Basilio signature Ibanez LB1-VL and have to say It's very nice sounding and versatile guitar. I like those specs and how It's sounds, responding very dynamically for your touch. White color would be nice but this violet color goes ok for me too ;D Some pictures below:

    Ibanez JEM7VP vs Ibanez PIA3761

    Hello again everybody! This time, I tried my hand at comparing these two Ibanez Steve Vai signatures. Both guitars are pretty cool, even though I haven't gotten along with very many Ibanez guitars in the past. @York Audio IRs on everything, as usual. Axe Fx 3 on all the tones of course. I...

    Bullet For My Valentine "Tears Don't Fall" Playthrough + Free Preset

    Another song from my adolescence, it took me 12 years to play it sufficiently, bullet for my valentine is a great band (I like the latest works less, but they are personal tastes). For the patch I used the "pvh 6160+" simulation, for both cleans and lead sounds and A Recto Cab. I added the delay...

    Dangerous But Worth the Risk - Warren DeMartini Solo

    Pantera - "5 minutes Alone" cover

    hi guys, I tried to play Pantera, unfortunately dimembag is impossible to imitate, don't be too hard on me 😁🤘🏻. I used the PVH 6160+ together with the stereo cab "Cali mix + Cali v30". The sound is not the same and maybe not even close, but I liked it a lot in the mix, let me know what you think

    Disturbed Guitar Playthrough

    Saturation switch .. just tried it!

    Holy smokes... I just realized the use of the saturation switch. Mod or not.. don't really care.. it makes the palm mutes really juicy. Now I just need to edit a little on the gain and pull it back a bit. Well... couldn't wait to throw this track I made yesterday up on soundcloud... I know...

    Bogner Ecstasy Blue Channel

    This time I played a simple and fast improvisation with my Ibanez AZ and a Bogner Ecstasy Blue Channel simulation.

    NGD: Suhr Modern Plus

    Just recently got my new Suhr Modern Plus in and am absolutely loving it. Only had a couple of hours to make some presets for a gig we had and this has to be the easiest guitar to get a great sound with. Blown away by the fullness and clarity of the pickups. Prior to getting this I had decided...
