Ultimate EG Gear chat thread!

hey EG regulars! you know who you are.

to thank you for making EG the best section, the mods have decided to let you have a place to hang out and talk about guitars, gigs, gear...
-trying out new guitars, gasing for others, looking for help from guys who have gigged, band problems, installing pups...


lets see how this works.
i'll be checking the thread often and closing it if needed.

if this goes well, i'll be calling on a few EG veterans to help out.

i'm hoping to start a few clicks in EG, like we used to have in here.
get to know a few of you by name.



k, Jenny

yes there's a gear and accessory forum. this is a thread where guys can chat about guitars and gear. not just ask specific questions.

afternoon guys hows it going, anyone work with their band this weekend?

Gigged the friday, was good fun. Bit of a quiet venue though

I've just finished cleaning and restringing and resetting two FR guitars, so I'm just jamming now. **** any kind of effort today, I have work tomorrow!

The band I manage had a live radio show, and the lead guitarist's Line 6/Bogner tube amp blew a preamp tube right before they were supposed to go on. I had to bring him my Fender Champ at the last minute, and when we dimed it in the studio it sounded AMAZING. Of course he lost all cleans and was not happy about that, but otherwise it was awesome. Then yesterday we had to sit around the tiny guitar shop for like an hour while he got the amp fixed.

^^ I'm pretty sure once a mic cable is shot, there's no reason to try to fix it. Do you have a LOT of free time on your hands or super expensive cables?

I think this is a cool idea, before is start talkin about my new guitar which im having built, you should all check out the Klon Centaur overdrive pedal, i heard a lot of differnet comments on it some say its the best, some say its not worth it, i just got mine and im running it through 2 half stacks at the same time, a mesa triple and a marshal tsl 100 and its amazing i strongly recommeng it, its awesome. And yeah im finally building m very own guitar with PRS, going over all the schematics for it right now, just have a question what do you think i should put as my custom inlay in the guitar, im very clueless on it. thanks

i tried to fix one. i think i got it working. it's like ive got 4 now. ^^^

the wires inside all start to touch after a while and cut the signal. so i was trying to insulate them better.

i got one working but i wouldnt use it out.


i know it sounds dumb but if i was getting a cusom inlay, i'd probably get my name!

probably stupid tho.

Are you going for a single or double cut?

As for inlays, just pick something you like, even if it's completely random; it's your guitar, you can do whatever you want . If you need inspiration, check out a few luthier's sites and stuff like Warmoth.com

you get better tones out of them? that just sounds made up.

i mean, yeah shorter the better, but why would coil help? less chance of kink?
