Hi all. So, which is the best 1x12 cab for the evh lbx ii? Mesa mini rectifier (v30) or evh (g12h30) ? I play mostly metal. Personally, im leaning towards the mesa but i ve heard v30s meke this amp sound too harsh(?) So which of the two would you pick and why? Thanks in advance!
#1802
^ What type of metal?

I haven't tried the amp, or either cab (this is going well ), but yeah I'd have said a V30 (though the mesa one is slightly different from the off-the-shelf one) is probably more aimed towards metal than a G12h30 which sounds more to me like 70s hard rock. But as i said above, it does depend on what you mean by metal. And also exactly how that specific amp and those specific cabs sound...

I saw in a couple of pictures that on Bucketheads Les Paul (only some pictures) that his neck pickup is painted in white. Can anyone explain to me why he would do this, and if there are any pros and cons.

Dave_Mc Hi dave thanks for the reply, i play a lot of modern metal and a bit of thrash but mostly modern. I was supposed to go with the 6505 mini head, but i read bad things about its reliability (overheating problems, etc), so the lbx ii was the second best alternative.
#1804
thanks. I'd imagine the v30 is the safer choice, then, but with the caveats I mentioned above- I haven't tried your amp or those specific cabs, and it's ages since I've tried the Mesa version of the V30.

What Strap Locks would fit in / have the same screws as my Epiphone 1958 Korina Explorer?


none. they all have smaller screws. take a tooth pick, stick it in with some wood glue. let dry. next day, put the screws in that come with the straplocks, and you are good. I have 18 guitars with straplocks did ALL of them this way, and never have had a problem. it is to a degree standard procedure.

that said, i exclusively use schaller.

It's been fixed now. I changed the address that UG recognizes as me recently, which was probably what triggered the bug.

LaBella strings? While Ernie Ball and D'Addario are what I've been sticking with for guitars, I'm considering La Bella bass strings when I restring my bass. From what I've gathered, they have a long life and are well-made and the current head seems to take pride in them. I'm aware of the brand, and they seem relatively inexpensive (an RX series 5-string of 130-45 is around $20 at Sweetwater vs $25-30 for similar Ernie Ball). 
Guitar/Bass:
Schecter: Damien 6/Stilletto Extreme 5, Squier: Bullet HSS*, Washburn RX10*/WG-587
*mods
Amps/FX
Peavey: Vypyr 30/Max 112 (200W), ISP: Decimator

Help identifying these guitars? 

Photos here: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0BzpIEM0x1YqALVVpaE1pTC1TQkU?usp=sharing 

I found these guitars in the trash (unbelievably) and would like some help identifying them. They are in poor shape, but are clearly vintage models from Charvel and Kramer. 

  Guitar one: I believe it is a KRAMER Focus 1000 from the 1980s.Unfortunately the body is completely painted over on the front.   Has a Floyd Rose tremolo with a whammy bar.  Back says "KRAMER 62836" and neck has "Made in Japan" stamped on it. 

Guitar two: I believe it is a Charvel, 1987 Model 3. Back says "Charvel 281311" and manufactured in Fort Worth, TX. Tuning knobs say Jackson.   

I'm curious to see if these might be worth restoring and how much that might cost. Or if there is any market to sell these?

Just need a little guidance on these tuners, kinda new to these. There's a small hole in the back of the tuners, I'm going to assume I need to push that in, then Left to loosen and right to tighten? Help...

Those are vintage style tuners for future reference:

I bought a EB 11-54 strings for C# tuning (RR3 guitar). THEY ARE SO FUC... TIGHT AND FAT AND THICK. I am so pissed now. Will a 10-46 (DR strings) be enought for C#? I liked them very much in D. Or maybe I should stay with that EB's?
#1819
I just bought and put on a dunlop 10-46+52 KFK signature set strings and they feel quite tight on C# tuning about as tight as 9s on standard and tight enough to drop the 46 gauge to B without it being floppy like a 46 gauge should at B. Is this set one of the Heavy Core sets and it's not stated anywhere or am I just going crazy?
#1820
I don't think 46s will work for C#. I use at least 52s for my C in NST.

But then again, I buy some singles and/or mix & match gauges- effectively making custom sets- for my NST-tuned axes.

Why, yes, I am a lawyer- thanks for asking!

C# standard? Cuz unless you mean dropped C# it sounds like you're playing with noodles. I'm with ^^^ on this one. 52 is even pushing it for me at C since I do 10-52 (EB Skinny Top Heavy Bottom) on dropped C# to E standard.

Yes i mean C# standard and drop B. I've researched a bit and 10-46 should feel a between 8s and 9s but it feels tighter than 9s and the 46 gauge string isn't a total spaghetti that's why im asking if this set is Heavy Core

Can I sharpen tremolo edges (JT580LP) by myself? Or I NEED to change whole bridge?
My RR3 just doesn't return to tuning after using whammy bar.
