    Want to learn some slide - help

    Any advice would be great. Total newbie to slide. My main first issue is how to set up my guitar better for slide......... I can't get any good sounds going, and I understand I should raise the action a bit. So, just raise the bridge up a bit ? Should I do any adjustment with the truss rod? Thanks!

    Anyone play / own SGs only ?

    Just curious ....... After all these years and different guitars I feel at home on an SG. Maybe I'll go all in ! Sell the others and pick up a few more SGs!

    2016 / 2017 SG Standards

    I have a shot to get one or the other. The differences I know about are the gig bag with the 2016 and the bat pick guard; as well as different pickups. Is there anything I'm missing that I should consider between the two? Thanks!

    Tennis elbow from playing guitar, anyone?

I had , until now attributed this all to my job which works both my arms pretty good. And the fact that I am getting older. But now I...

    How to find out how many of these SGs were made?

    I have a Captain Kirk SG and have been searching to try and find out how many they made. Just for me to keep as history with this guitar that I hope gets passed down for generations. I can't find anything concrete. (even e-mailed Gibson, with no reply) Any ideas on how to find this out...

    My SG history and new CK Custom review

    I'm more of a recent SG convert, a little over a year now they have become my go to guitars. Before that I was playing Strats and Strat style guitars, but always trying to get them to sound like a Gibson. So I picked up my first SG, a special, as a backup to my then main PRS Strat style and...

    Back from the other side, looking for some suggestions

    I have to admit I've been playing my LP a lot lately. But finally had the realization that I truly am an SG guy. Its so much easier to play and get to the higher registers; Tone-wise, I'd have to give the LP a slight edge in sustain, but really nothing more. And man those things are HEAVY! So...

It amazing all the different combos you can put the effects in. anyone care to take a look at my pedals and let me know how you would line them up?
