I was born with perfect pitch. It's a gift... and a curse. (sorry, quoting Monk)

Orange Amps

What do you think of 'em? I've been considering one, it's a toss-up. But are they good?

Juice Building the Church Juice has some nasty stuff in there that'll make you put down your guitar for three weeks and cry, Building the Church is just insanely hard, but the key to both is slow them down, and get the note/finger patterns down, once it's in your fingers it'll come. A metronome is y...

Anyone know where I can find a JEM77BRMR?

Title's self explanatory. I can't find one ANYWHERE, does anyone know where I can find one used or (preferrably) new? I'm DYING to have one of these.

my guess is he used the bogner head through a marshall amp, all with his universe.

Yeah, Sex and Religion is my personal favorite album by Mr. Vai

Hmm... now leaning towards the Fender 50's Stratocaster in Daphne Blue, can't go wrong for $630. The only thing preventing me is the V neck, I don't know how it would feel as compared to my soft-C on my Mexican Standard. I'd swap out the pickups, I have a set of Fender Hot Noiseless pickups that'd s...

If you're on a PC, get a LightScribe drive, that should do the trick, then find a program to design it and then inscribe it!

I'm not 100% sure that's what I'm looking for. As far as the tuning peg, yes, that's the look I'm going for. But, I want the tuners that you shove the string down the post then wrap it around, it's a lot quicker.

Thanks for all opinions, but here's my response to each: @Banicka: I like the vintage tuners, I'm actually considering putting Fender vintage tuners on there, just to go for the look. I like the look. I'm DEFINITELY not doing medium-jumbo frets, I do sometimes play a bit of chording while still shre...
