  4. The Guitar Rack
    Hey guys as some of you may know last week I got a new ESP LTD Alexi-600. It was an awesome guitar but I had two issues with it. One, it was neck heavy and two the finish was not spectacular. I have learned that ESP has recently revised the strap button and input jack location to rid the neck...

    I will be refinishing and basically replacing my old Ibanez Gio Starter guitar soon and have a question about the pickups i should get. I have my mind set on Seymour Duncan because the place i go to only sells those. I want to try and get a cross between an EVH and Slash sound, with some...

    I was watching DIY Network tonight. I was surprised to see First Act's Chief Luthier Kelly Butler building a custom guitar for Los Lonely Boys' Henry Garza. I guess this was aired back in July so this might be old news to everyone. It was the best hour of TV I've seen in a long time. :Sylvia...

    Selling my Wayne Exotic Rock Legend guitar. This is a unique Wayne guitar. When I originally order this Michael Charvel said this was his first wayne guitar he did with this type of finish. May possibly be the only one still. If you order this same guitar from Wayne guitars it will take 8-9...

    I have seen many posts where people are asking for pickup suggestions. As many of you realize, we can talk until we are blue in the face, but actually hearing the pickup is much better than anything else. The object of this thread is for you to put the guitar and pickup in the subject of your...

    So much is said about tone on forums like this. What the hell does the word even mean? In the truest definition, a tone is just a sound. To musicians, tone is the quality of timbre. We often talk of sweet tones, elusive "holy grail" tones, etc.... This got me thinking. Ask 5 guitarists to set...
