what kind of music do you play? so i can find whats a great pickup for you.
and lock tuners are great if your playing or your just leaving your guitar around. so they wont get untuned
#8
Ok well i play mostly old rock or 80's metal so my humbuckers work great for that but how much are lock tuners cause if i do use them my guitar would never become untuned cause the tune-o-matic bridge is amazing

Wtf, why does the knob go to 11?
I have no idea what I'm talking about. Don't belive me.

Because it's louder that way. You get to 10 and there's no more, but that one goes to 11.

Arrgh, you ruined it!! Spinal Tap references are not the slightest bit funny when you say "Hey look, I made a Spinal Tap reference". Thanks a lot!

Ok here's one (just to test you cos i'm already decided )

I have an Ibanez S470 (mahogany body, ZR trem, HSH pickups) I want pickups that'll give me a good sound for Steve Vai. Paul Gilbert, Joe Satriani AND Stuff liek Black Sabbath, Thin Lizzy, David Lee roth and stuff.

(there's nothing else to change on an S470 they're great )

Haha, well I wasn't sure how ambiguous my statement was :P

Tell you what, just don't even look at it...don't think about it, stop thinking about it!

as the first '05er in this thread (no, i'm not full of it- it's true), i say that this is an odd thread. most people post details of their build, not say they can help other people.

and there's no way you can help with everything. try this:

can you mix active and passive pickups?

This thread is full of Jan 07ers.

Personally, I wouldn't trust anyone who's work I haven't seen.

Mister Threadstarter, do you have any pictures of your build, instead of vauge pictures of the parts?

That's called a multi-account, which you can get banned instantly for.
I'd much rather have an individual thread for answering different peoples questions than somebody who doesn't have any real pictures to back up his 'mods' saying he can answer everybody's questions.

It's still a multi-account, whatever the reason. You're actually fairly lucky that your IP doesn't match the IP of any other users.
I'm still not digging that you claim to be able to answer any customization questions without having proof of customizing something in the past. How are we meant to know you're just not some guy talking absolute shite about products he knows nothing about?

the whole point of UG is to start a thread and get MULTIPLE OPINIONS about what you want, since no one's always right (me excluded.) not to post in a thread by a guy claiming to know anything.

and what's the other account's username?

^ Are you gonna ask a 10 year old how to build a car? You wouldn't. You're not going to ask someone with no experience, and probably no knowledge advice on a costly, time consuming endevour like building or modding a guitar.

I agree with the not giving him our full trust because there is no proof he knows what he is talking about but, so what hes a jan 07'er? What if Semour Duncan himself was to make an account today? Would you not trust his knowledge because he is a "n00b"?

if he did he'd be EXTREMELY biased.

and online, you can make yourself look like anyone, he'd still need to earn trust.

Since when are we allowed to double post? Never. If he had trully been here longer than he has indicated then he would know this.

Are you saying UG is the only message board on the entire world wide web that doesn't have the "Fergot yer passcode?"-function built-in? You know, the one where yuo admit you forgot it, and it sends you an email telling you what to do about it.

No, I suspect that his man is lying, and is indeed rather new to this forum.

"His man"? Is that a euphemism for penix?

Anyways, this thread is the equivalent of me hanging out in front of an automotive shop with a sign saying "I can fix your car, I really can. I promise. Pretty please. And I'm better than the guys in this shop". I may be a really talented mechanic, and the sign might tell the truth, but without credentials, nobody should be expected to believe me.

If Mutated, Algee or Cord (for instance- threre are more decent UG builders) had a professor-thread on here, that'd be different, because we know they make decent shit, and that they don't claim to know everything.
