  1. Buy and Sell
    Found a seller online who was selling these things for dirt cheap. Messaged him and asked why they were so cheap, apparently he bought 11 of them from a closing music store and was selling them for a small profit. I got mine today, and the damn this is a beauty...

    Hello everyone, I got my first electric guitar today and I loved it... until I changed the strings! Now it sounds terrible! I've tuned it and checked the tuning and it says its fine, but as soon as I go to play Hells Bells or something it sounds like crap. Its a used Epiphone Les Paul (White +...

    Ok. I'm in band starting a new project. It's a really great concept, but I need to get my guitar to sound like the electric guitar in the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly theme. I can't post a link cuz I'm new, but go to youtube and type "The Good, the Bad, the Ugly opening." It's the first one...

    This set includes an EMG 81 and an EMG 85. After several hours of fitting and soldering and them not working (due to my Epiphone electronics being different from the schematics (so many additional ground wires and silly connectors)) I managed to get it working. My epiphone electronics now follow...

    Hey guys, ive had this epiphone les paul standard here for a while now, and I really like it, however I am thinking its time to replace the pickups to get a new sound, the stock pickups are good, but not really great, sometimes I find myself plugging in my squier even to get that clear bluesy...

    Ok so I'm just starting out playing guitar, and now it's time to change my strings for the first time. 1 - How do I change them? 2 - How do I know I have fitted them correct? 3- Which strings do I buy? I have a Slash custom Epiphone Les Paul. I took the E string out, just by losening the...

    Hey, I have an epiphone les paul custom, alpine white i'd love to fit: Neck - Seymour Duncan Amnico 2 Bridge - Active EMG-81 I was wondering if it would be possible for me to fit these (looking particularly at the EMG here) without boring out any of my guitar body to put the battery in. I.e...

    Half my stuff is "crap". The other half is really rather decent. You'll see what I mean... First off Hohner HW-300 Acoustic. Old. It's beat and I didn't care for it well or save it any abuse back when I was a "kid" with it. I distictly remember kickeing it across the floor once, resulting...

    Sorry if this is a dumb question, but i'm not very good with the technical side of playing the guitar. I have a Line 6 50 Watt Spider 112 (1x12") amp, and i recently purchased an Epiphone Les Paul. I choose the insane setting, then turn all the knobs to the correct places so i can get the right...

    Good news and bad news. Recently, I purchased a lower end Fender Strat with a Rosewood neck. It was stolen at lunch. I took it to work because I was taking it to a local guitar shop after work to get some custom work done on it. When I came back to my car the trunk was open and I thought I...

    No matter how I tweak things my guitar tracks lack warmth and sound scratchy on the top end without the sustain and gain I’m looking for. I’m looking for a hard rock sound (VH, Scorpions) and no matter how I tweak the EQ it ends up emphasizing the scratchiness and mud. Sound files are...

    Hell-O. The first example "kotcc" is galloping chords. I hear this and I don't have a clue how to gallop chords fast. I uploaded a clip so you guys could listen. Is there a certain motion to galloping chords that fast? I usually get caught up on strings trying to gallop that fast, even if I...
