I've always been a strat man and have always had a big hangup about telecasters just didn't like it and saw the strat as the new improved model (which essentially it was!). However, I played a friend's tele recently and absolutely loved it! So I decided to try some out. Ended up buying an...
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...

I want to buy a neck pickup for my ibanez guitar, I have Three options but I am not sure about which one to choose, I have a DP159 bridge pickup and I wonder what would be a good combination, I know the evo neck is supposed to be compatible with this one but I have heard good things about...
Hi there everyone!
I have recently started a new project with an old Strat copy body I managed to get hold of. The body is definitely a copy going by the shape of the pick-guard up against my USA Strat's one. (Just a tiny bit off when it comes to scre holes and horn etc.)
Anyway. After a bit...
I currently own a 2002 Fender Mexican Stratocaster. The guitar originally had 3 white single coils and a white pickguard. I have modified the guitar some as you can see. The pickups are 2 single-coil 69 fender customs(SD covers) and 1 SD custom shop 78 EVH pickup. I also changed all the pots to...
So I just got a Jackson KE3 of Ebay.
and its a brilliant guitar to play.
feels nice, plays fast, bridge is quite good.
the guy i bought it off put a Dimarzio Evolution in the bridge.
and i don't know if while doing that he might've screwed the wiring.

Hey guys I am looking for a new axe and would like your opinions. I really like the LTD Alexi Laiho signature model, but am not sure it is worth over a grand to me. I am not buying it for the name. Don't get me wrong I like COB and Alexi is a great guitarist but that is not why I am looking at...
I'm a rather new guitarist, and I'm currently learning sweeping techniques on electric guitar for solo purposes. Problem is I can't seem to sweep cleanly.
I seem to have this problem of getting a lot of noisy while sweeping. The moment I lift my finger off a fret to go to the next...
I've read all I could find about Robin Trower's sound and he seems to play stock strats and does very little to mod or replace his pickups. It's basically a stock guitar setup for him.
I've got a stock American Fender and I've been playing through the neck pickup but I can't get his sound...
hey guys, i just had my friend solder on some Fender Vintage Noisless pickups in my Squire strat (gonna change the neck next, dont worry). And now that there on i forget the height there supposed to be, if i recall right the neck pickup is supposed to be lower than the bridge pickup or what?
My 1988 Steinberger GR4 with 1998 neck which has been refretted (reputedly to Alan Holdsworth spec) 20" radius near flat relief and 6100 frets. At some point it's had a synth pickup fitted then removed.
It sports the standard fitment of SD Custom Custom in the bridge and two SD Hotrails, I...

I have picked up this axe, and it has mass buckle-rash and front finish wear with cracking. The headstock has a split and was repaired with a chunk of wood behing the val. that is irritating when barring the first fret. The binding is great and yellowed with one small crack by the 21st fret...
