    Hey Guys, new here........Great Site... Ive heard alot of backing tracks, and some of them are even authentic(the real thing from the real band) like a few of the Metallica tracks that i have.

    Is it me or is there WAY too much Van Halen posts on here? go to bootlegs, theres a specific section for just Van Halen posts. It's kind of ridiculous. Don't get me wrong, Van Halen is an awesome band, but there is just way too much of their stuff on here. Frankly I think some people just put it...

    Do you install the string with the ball end on a edge\floyd rose style bridge or do you cut it off ? I hate changing strings. I'll break a string and simply switch guitars, but sooner or later ,,,I'm stuck changing strings on multiple guitars. I miss my guitar tech.

    I know, people think I'm crazy but I plan on switching out my fixed bridge for a Floyd Rose double locking tremolo. I know where I'm routing and drilling but can anyone tell me how and where exactly to anchor the springs? Any help you have is greatly appreciated. Sincerely yours, WarlockLover

    Hey guys I've had a bit of a problem with my strat in the last month or so. I for whatever reason have a high E string being very very sharp I think one could describe it as, It seems to barely ring and when it does its very very dull/thing sounding and it seems that my low E string is very...

    Hey guys I had some questions about modding guitars. As for the first thing I just bought a new humbucker pickup and am wondering is it hard to wire them? Granted I've only wired a tone knob which in itself is beyon easy , then again only requires two wires. I would take it to my guitar tech but...

    I was looking at possibly having a floyd rose locking tremolo system installed in my guitar, however I was wondering if its by all means practical. I have a ibanez strat essentially and I was wondering are guitar techs able to put one in and typically how much do they run for, I would normally...

    Hey guys, I have 5 guitars and I notice that maintenance on them is killing my pocket. I notice the biggest problem that I end up luggin my guitars down to the shop is that the frets making an annoying buzz or rattle when you play them. It usually costs me about 35$ twice a year per guitar to...
