First try the amp's distortion. I don't recommend going much over 3 o'clock or it will get fizzy. As for the Rat, it's a harsh, aggressive sounding distortion. My suggestion for that would be to...

SweetWater is the best if you're buying a high end product. GC/Musician's Friend/Music123 are all the same company. Never dealt with Sam Ash.

Mainly the push/pull parts and anything for the vibrato feature. I don't know a whole lot about the guts of those amps or the circuits. But I've not heard back on my offer, so I don't think I'm...

Check the output jack for broken wires. It could be the switch as well. A pot would crackle when you use it but it shouldn't cut out. Spray contact cleaner into the switch and see if it helps if...

Gibson must not have been too found of the wood quality of their Faded Vs when I bought one, because they put a wall anchor in the strap button hole. If they don't think it's good enough to hold a...

Meh, used middle range Jackson or ESP. You're paying for the shape with those lower end guitars, not the quality. For $300 you could get a used X series Warrior, Rhoads or Kelly or some similar ESP.

The more I think about it, if you haven't ordered those already, I would strongly suggest finding the size of that neck and getting a new nut. The reason I say that is looking at the picture you...

Yes, especially if you aren't sure about the size. If you still replace the nut, make sure you also get one that mounts the same way as your current one (top or bottom).

I think you'll be fine as well. It probably won't play the best and if it has a trem it will be hard to setup, but if you use a decently heavy gauge string your neck isn't going to bend like a...

Are those EMG actives or the old passive HZs in that DKMGT? If they're the actives, you're gonna have to trade the entire wiring setup out, and will see a downgrade in quality.

Most $400 guitars have trems that aren't bad in terms of feel but will probably be worn out after a couple years of abuse. The Edge III comes to mind. Jackson units tend to be a little bit better,...

Those are not active pickups, unless it's a really old Jackson with a preamp circuit. It sounds to me like a wire on the input jack may have broken off. Could also be the toggle switch.
