Practice more, play what you like. Good things come from dumb threads sometimes! The 'unsolicited' part was about making a thread proclaiming your opinion. Responses, especially like yours, are great...

Probably, but you just need to get some sort of lubricant in there so you can work it loose. It doesn't matter too much what it is unless it's really, really frozen. Give it a shot with whatever you...

EMGs are not ridiculously priced. You can get an 81/85 set all day long on eBay for $100, and even retail a set is $200 which includes all the pots, caps, and the stereo output jack you'll need to...

Don't hit them so hard :shrug:
Strings are going to move if you slam a pick into them. You need to either change your pick attack or deal with the consequences. A properly set up guitar shouldn't...

What gauge are you using now?

It's worth trying a larger gauge but it's also worth trying to not beat your guitar so badly that it goes noticeably out of tune. If you have a floating bridge that's...

If it's enough to throw the strings out of tune, it's not a good technique. That or you're using strings that are way too thin, but I doubt that.

I don't get what the question is here. You say the...

I mean, they offered them for sale commercially. Whether they sold any is another question. I never saw one in the wild.

Some of the Dano pedals sounded surprisingly good, but the majority of them...

I think the problem here is that you don't really know if you can safely triple (!) the voltage going into the electronics without frying them. EMGs can handle it, but they're fairly robust and it's...

Not true. They sold the entire board with the pedals, which should tell you how cheap they were! I remember them being in the MF catalog.

If you're pushing your strings out of tune just by playing them, something else is wrong. You need a setup, looking in particular at the nut and bridge.

It's all subjective. It's not a question of fact.

Cube is a fine starter amp in the same vein as the Peavey vypyr or the vox valvetronix. Lots of options, decent sound, good bedroom players.

I thought it was a pretty good amp. The presets definitely suck, but as far as a super versatile amp, for the prices they go for used, it's basically unbeatable.

The benefits of stereo are having separation for stereo effects like reverb, delay, chorus etc. None of that matters anyway, the 1960 is a mono amp so you won't be running the cab in stereo anyway....
