Yeah buts it's fashionable diss kirk though.

While he might not be Gary Moore or (insert other legend name here), he has talent and has played an important part in rock/metal.

I think it's great he's got it and look forward to seeing it get played.

Also cool, a Jazzguar, essentially a 25.5" Jaguar.


I've got a cathedral reverb! Those things are awesome!

Or do you mean a twin? Nah, I prefer the Bassman and I'm not really into surf tbh.

Kirk Hammett is a great guitarist, I don't see what the big deal is. It's great that it goes to a player.

I recognize all but the 2 large ones immediately left of your Wampler Whammy. A wah and volume?

What do you think of the soul food? Also, are you more of an OCD or TS9 fan? I like the Fulltone/Ibanez battle. I think it can be kind of fun.


Also, a gent might be willing to trade my Sparklecaster plus his Godin Freeway Classic +cash. And by plus cash, I mean immediate money to buy Seymour Duncan P-Rails for it. He agreed to let me keep the quarter pounder out of the Strat.

The blue is a RMC WAH 1. Quite a sought after wah, especially here. The black is a Dunlop Volume Pedal X. £120 for a volume pedal is a lot, but there's no tone suck at all.

The OCD blows the TS9 away. I wouldn't use a TS9 as a soul OD as it's a bit lifeless compared to the OCD, which is the best distortion I've owned and will probably never sell. I don't know why everyone doesn't own one. I use the TS9 to colour the tone of my muff or as a boost, but it colours the tone more than the Soul Food so if I just want a more transparent boost I'll use the Soul Food. It does colour the tone with a bit of mid range but there are mods you can do, but it's working fairly well right now without it.

Great pedal for the price!

Agreed on the OCD. Great dirtbox.

Ya. I jump my Bassman and add the OCD and it just sounds ridiculous. Bordering on fuzz.

My band's recording next month so you'll hear my signature tone pretty soon!

I wouldn't mind trying a more sought after Klon Klone to see what the fuss is all about, aside from that I'm pretty much done with overdrives. (Might buy some new fuzz soon though.)

Fuzz is definitely my favorite, owned a bunch. What kind would you want?

There's one called the Dual Fuzz that I've been looking at for a fair amount of time. If need to import it so the delay has put me off.

Have you used one?

The Freeway Classic is a very nice mid-level Stratclone. Should be as good as better than almost anything short of a MiA or MiJ Fender fatstrat. Should be built like a tank.

Our fellow UGers think highly of it, too.

Killer choice. I like the Fix'd side especially.

metallica in general has become a living parody.

"metal" has always been a tongue in cheek joke on itself, they've just taken it to another level.



i love them for that.

I like 90's Metallica.

They had the potential to grow into an amazing Hard Rock band.

Sadly they listened to the long hairs and tried to be teenagers again.
