What should I have gotten, then? I tried out several pedals before I decided on that one.
Jesus it's not like I said "Woohoo, Metalzone FTW! Boss rules!"

I didn't really get the sound I wanted until I got my tube amp and stuck a Metal Muff in front of it. You aren't going to be happy as long as you're trying to get a tone out of your MG. Just won't...

Anything with a fixed bridge might be passable to OK from there, but I wouldn't touch anything with a trem.

Where is the strap button now? Moving it to the heel of the neck seems to work for me with explorer shapes. The Mockingbird shape isn't far off that.

Are you sure you're not hearing the strings and the amp because the volume is so low? If you don't hear it at higher volumes or with headphones on, don't worry about it.

The only thing I can really say is "not the line 6". They are not what they used to be and they sound really digital, processed, and muddy.

I've heard bad things about the Marshall MG's too.

Drill a new hole in the neck plate. You won't hurt anything, and the strap will work much better. I did that on my explorer and I have zero neck drop when standing up.

Shim the neck. Put a piece of wood under the heel like you say at the end.


EDIT: It's a half an inch where? 12th fret? I don't think you can shim that out. You may have screwed up somewhere.

If I remember correctly, You can hold down the footswitch button for a few seconds and it should store the current preset there so you can bring it back.

Roll with it. No one but you will probably ever know it's there. It gives the guitar character, and you will always know if it's your's or not.

ESP Can't (won't) sell the explorer shape in the US, even on a custom anymore. I believe Mr. Hetfield may be an exception, but his customs are probably ghost built by a luthier these days.

Usually I don't change strings until 1 breaks. Then I change the set.
Sometimes I will change them if I notice a big degrade in sound quality or feel.
