Billy Hyde stock ESPs if I'm not mistaken, if you haven't tried there already?
#4
Try down Ramsay Street mate.


Sorry had to do that. Used to love Neighbours in the 80s. Get an Ormsby guitar instead

The Ramsay Street you're thinking of isn't even in Queensland.

this.

and slightly off topic, do you prefer soulfly, sepultura or cavalera conspiracy?

Haven't listened to Soulfly or Sepultura in a long while, but it's hard to choose.

I really should check out Cavalera Conspiracy.


yes, it is a good album. Definitely worth getting imo.
Can we get an opinion on whether Billy Hyde/Allan's are any good?
#10
Billy Hydes are utter legends. Not many ESP's in there last time I looked though....

Alan's are a bunch of gimps. Impolite, don't care, just want money.

Go check out www.guitar.com.au
They're on the Gold Coast and stock nearly everything. Probably gonna have to order what you want in as they don't have much IN store.

Ellaways are pretty woeful with ordering stuff in as well.
#13
I was in there not THAT long ago, swear I saw some ESPs, I love BillyHyde they even have a few Matons floating around.
#15
Allans doesn't stock ESP's, but if you want to travel a bit further, try Music Express near Garden City and ANZ/QE II Stadium, Mt Gravatt. They've got them.
#17
Allans are crap EDIT. So are music express.

bmusic.com.au have pretty good pricing but aren't local.

Got my LTD from Ellaways and got it replaced 3 times before I ended up with one that didn't have a badly warped neck. All in the matter of about 2-3 weeks from time of order to guitar number 3.

Haven't seen an LTP or ESP in there since.

Allans = waaaay overexpensive, and stock aobut three different types of guitars. I think I saw that really expensive Gretsch there today though when I was buying strings... I know the name but I burnt it out of my memory so I wouldnt be sad every time i remembered the price...

Try Arties or Ellaway's, near Chermside.

Or If you want HardXXcore Ferny Grove/Mitchie scum territory northside, try Mau Music =]
I only live down the road, duck in and say hi!


EDIT: Dont go to Ellaway's. They are rubbish and the whole place is run by elitist assholes.
Dear diary.

Today I stuffed some dolls full of dead rats I put in the blender.

I'm wondering if, maybe, there really is something wrong with me.
#21
^The White Falcon? 'cos i saw that in there today. ill have to go check out billy hyde, sounds pretty good.

Damn, I'm coming to Brisbane next year so this is of relevance to me.

Not to threadjack, but how easy is it to get weed up there and are there any decent punk bands? Okay, I threadjacked.

F*cking metalcore. I guess that does mean I'm not gonna be short of singer gigs though. And from what I hear, Brisbane is the birthplace of progressive grunge so I reckon I'll be OK.

Singer/guitarist in a perfect world. But given that I'm an average guitarist at best, I tend to get a lot more singing gigs than guitar. I want to start my own band eventually though.

I'm taking this all in. Is it easy to get fake IDs or do I have to get those in Sydney first? Cause I'm going to uni up there, but I'm not 18 till August.

Nah, just to buy alcohol and get into R18 gigs.

Ahh well, just get in Sydney anyway. Make sure it looks legit as possible, though.

You can get fined around $2500 IIRC for holding a fake ID. And bottle-os ask for ID for anyone that looks under 25 now, so you'll probably be using it a lot.

As for me, I'll be able to do that legally in about 27 days

lol yeh i hate when people, usually on tv, pronounce it brisbayne. 27 days lucky you ive still got a year and two months

I turn into the Blackout Menace when drunk. Seriously, I find I do a lot of sh*t when hammered that I very much regret the next day, like sleeping with my best mate's fatarse girlfriend.

Two heinous crimes in one


All that happens to me is I end up talking shit to everyone about random crap, and occasionally making a few slanderous remarks about the jews.

Although I remember the first time I got wasted I thought I was a cow and ate some grass and this chick rode me around the yard.
