Guitar Pro 5.

I don't like the redesign of Guitar Pro 6 at all, so I still use 5. And I only write tabs/MIDI-stuff for my own songwriting/tab songs for my own bands covers, so I don't care that it...

I don't think you should even consider a Yamaha SG-model if weight is a concern for you. They're absolutely amazing guitars, well made and really nicely designed - but they were designed in the 70's...

Fine amp, but the guitar is as people have already said not good. I have one and it was a waste of money. It's a guitar you buy to get the answer to the question - "Is this a hobby I'll stick...

It's funny this way, and also why I'd never consider anything from Schecter, Ltd, or PRS SE at current prices in Europe. They've all had a 30% increase this year. Gibson went up with their much...

My SG2000 is what I would call very heavy. Haven't weighed it, but due to the similarities in the construction, expect it to weigh like a non-weight relieved Les Paul. As for the neck, on mine (which...

Part of the appeal of the mini humbuckers is that they sound like their own thing. Less woofy low end, more clear and focused tone. Adding new pickups to that guitar and you're already about halfway...

Cheap Floyds are never a good idea. Made of cheap metal, and while they probably work okay for a while they soon wear out with use. Go with the string-thru.

If you care about your guitar, you should check those for wear and tighten every time you pick it up anyway... But yeah, they loosen quite a lot in the beginning with new leather ends.

I had it on a chair. I almost never use it anymore, I only keep it because the used value is negligible from where I stand and because it's nice to have spare amps to lend for jamming with friends.
