    Billy Gibbons at Daryl's house

    I've seen it, and sometimes he looks like a deer in the headlights, trying to figure out the progressions.

    A Work In Progress.

    I have a corner of my guitar room I use. I use recording programs since 1) I don't have the room for a physical recorder and 2) I am a dinosaur and use the same program I have used for the last 22 years! Besides, I can see the waveform and make edits on it with ease, as compared to a hard drive...

    Using The Pickup Configuration’s That Guitars Are Coming With.

    Some of mine have splits, but I prefer series/parallel. More of a Gretsch like sound. Single twang, without the hum. As for Phase, try lowering the volume on one of the pickups to get more/less of the out of phase sound. Enjoy!

    Roller saddles simple questions

    Like Done said, have your nut checked. As for a roller bridge itself: IF you have a trem, it helps. If not, there's no need to add more bits of metal on the bridge.

    Does this look legit? MIK SG

    They are meant to be played. Part of playing them, is getting those little nicks and dents. I would freak more if I got my first ding in a pristine guitar, over one with the bumps and bruises already there.

    Naughty Boy

    I am not going to argue about the CNC process. I have a few MIC guitars, and they are wonderful. BUT they were built for a MAIN known company. (Ibanez and Eastman.) My main point was that the PARTS were most likely garbage in these no name brands. And a few do have the "Zewui" headstock design...

    Naughty Boy

    The "Naughty Boy" is its own brand from China, with a different headstock shape then a Gibby, and it's own logo. Problem is, do you want to spend the price of it plus, to get it playable? Think of every part on it as cheap garbage, and the fret work done by blind drunk monkey. QC is NOT high on...

    Pickups for an Epiphone Korina Flying V?

    Exactly. I mean, if you want to go from standard to a slide guitar, and only have one guitar, great. But do you REALLY need more screws on your guitar? And small tools to lose in a drawer?

    Suggestions for an intonatable wraparound bridge for a modern SG Special

    I'll respectfully disagree about the Badass. It works and has worked for some 50 years. Tonepros makes a nice wrap-around, that I personally find stupidly designed. You need a wrench, against the body of the guitar, to adjust the action. What were they thinking? Wilkenson makes a wrap-around...

    Live shows: How long do you take to warm up?

    Used to practice the gig the night before, then during the day of the gig, practiced the intros and outros of the songs. Always found endings to be hardest.

    Les Trem II Not Playing Nice with SG Modern

    Ok, here's my 2 cents thrown in... If you are loving the feel of the guitar, and the sound fits what's in your head, don't turn it into a strat. It's a different animal, and none of the trem systems will give you that same feeling. It's like a Paul player trying to get the same tones out of a...

    Are the two SG P90 models hum cancelling in the middle position?

    You would be out of phase.
