To me, going by sound alone, it sounds like he's using an old Marshall of some description, but with a wah pedal permanently set somewhere near the "full-treble" position, and dialing in the level of...

some more recent Les Pauls and SGs have bridges that lock onto the bridge posts so they don't fall off and don't need to be fixed in place by any other means when you take off all the strings, but...

this is true, but they only used 1 banjo string, rather than an entire set - many guitarists would get a standard set of 11 or heavier guitar strings with a wound 3rd string, throw away the bottom E...

my first guitar is a cheap nylon string acoustic that cost 38 in 1994 when my mum bought it for my brother. He got bored with it quickly, and I started playing it instead. It still leans against the...

I think tone chasing is a fun hobby and it's worth the effort if it keeps you interested in playing the instrument, but my opinion is that it is not all that useful in the real world.

I only ever seem to break strings when there's a bad or worn out string, or something wrong with the guitar causing strings to break.

That being said, I always bring at least two guitars to a gig -...

I had no idea the Baja had been discontinued, I'm resisting the urge to facepalm at Fender for that.

Out of those 3, the Baja Tele is the better option, by quite a long way, IMO.

I think it depends on the individual guitar. I have a fender strat that came with very small nut slots that needed to be widened to take 11 gauge strings properly. 12s might be fine on your strat -...

imo, the tonal differences are minimal at best, and probably completely inaudible if you're playing metal, because the chances are the amp will be distorting the sound to the point where it overrides...

I would say for a step down tuning, first try one gauge above what you normally use. If that feels too light, try going up another gauge.

The adjustments you need to make depend on the guitar, but...

Solid state amps aren't 'bad' per se - they just don't do tube-like tones very well, and most people, even those who don't yet realise it, want a tube amp.
