Others pick up on nachos and pizza in the second picture. I notice the flag... That's the royal standard of the UK as introduced by queen Victoria in 1837. Hardly renaissance! Amateurs.

I'm a big Jackson fan, so I'm always inclined to fall on that side. But I would be a bit wary about importing a used instrument. Even if it's from a big seller with a good returns policy, it's still...

Active or passive pickups? A used Jackson DK2T, DKMGT or SLSMG would be a pretty good choice, I reckon. They're all 24 fret, superstrat shape, 2H, non-trem, Japanese built. [/Jackson fan]

It was always just a hobby for me. I never had any real intention of being a professional musician. It's a good thing too, considering how stagnant my playing is these days.

The characters are generally well written. I think perhaps one of the (minor) weaknesses of the show is that they don't have *quite* enough time to do them all justice, which might be why it...

The woods is a matter of preference and what tone they're going for. Jackson uses alder on most of their guitars. It's quite balanced tonally, quite light, quite easy to get hold of. Just generally...

Ah okay. I might have guessed that the buzz was caused by trem springs, except you said it's a non-floyd model! Is the nut slot cut too low for that string? That might possibly cause it.
