A crybaby or some kind of wah would be a good gift. Also maybe a delay pedal. These effects are less subtle than chorus type effects. The crybaby is pretty essential for Hendrix, and a delay pedal...

I go about it the same way as red.guitar.

I find that the 12o'clock position is a good starting point with EQ settings, then tweak each one until you're happy. Same thing with pedals.

Go look by your ******* sink. Green scotch brite is on the back of dish sponges. You can get 800 grit paper at an auto paint store.

I just put a trem-stopper on mine. It works great. Check out FU-Tone. The one I got was $25. There are a few other options. The one I have prevents the bridge from floating.

Thanks Tyler, yeah, I tried that first. I think it's a ground issue. I have noisy pickups, a notoriously noisy amp, and mediocre cords.

Look at the bridge, see if it's noticeably tilted back. The bridge should be parallel to the body. If it's tilted back, your springs need to be adjusted. Floyd Rose website has videos to walk you...
