    I have to say I've been using modellers direct for about 5 years now. I started with a zoom 3030, went to a zoom GFX-8, and am now using a pod xt. With both of the zooms I had to use a cabinet emmulator D.I. box otherwise I would get the mosquit...(more)

    My band used to use amps on stage until we found out about the modelling amps. Now we all go direct to the board and use earbuds hooked into a headphone amp. This works better for us in a few ways. What you set up for a tone while using headphon...(more)

    Alan, I stand corrected, and bow my head to you with humility. YOU, I consider to have MUCH more knowledge than I and am sorry for the misinformation that i spread. In the future i will try to go a little more in depth with my research. I got my...(more)

    Hey all I wanted to do was point out that a famous guitarist uses oak in his guitar, and your opinion as well as mine is just that, an opinion. Would I ever make or play an oak guitar? Probably not, But i wouldn't consider flaming a newbie about...(more)

    Hi all, i just had to add my limited knowledge here. If anyone would like to do a little research instead of being a know it all, they would find that Brian May, the guitarist for a somewhat known band called Queen, has mainly used only one guit...(more)

    Once again Alan is right David. I can't count how many guitarists that I know who have been playing for years don't even know how to check intonation, let alone adjust it! It sounds like Alan is doing what i want to someday do, (repair guitars)....(more)

    Alan, I got 3 kids and a wife and im a real tightwad, the only luthier i trust lives about 2 hrs. away from me and charges $ to work on my guitars. Dont get me wrong, anything that is major work goes to him, but anything that's in my realm of ab...(more)

    I agree with the 1st post, check your other frets, if they are starting to wear down then a redress should be in order. If the rest of the frets are in good order then this is what i did, and it is holding up very good. you need at least a 40 wa...(more)

    Hello Samuel, I bought one of these kits and i'm happy I did! You won't get a "real" strat but for the price you can't go wrong. Things to note though: when i put the neck on I noticed that it tilted back too far(the strings would hit the 21st f...(more)

    did you change strings before setting saddles? If not then that may be where your problem lies. after playing the guitar for a while the strings get little indents on the bottom of them, this causes the strings to not vibrate evenly causing into...(more)

    I just went out last week and bought a parker p-44 Since then I have been playing it constantly and can tell you personally I'd take one of these over a gibson any day. I have read horror storys about the parkers, like the piezo deciding to quit...(more)

    I had an invader in my mahogany bodied hagstrom for quite a long time. I got a real good "chunka chunka" type sound with extremely easy harmonics. The drawbacks were that when i went to play a solo my signal would get lost in the mix. From what ...(more)

    When do you suppose they are going to give up on the kidney design, and integrate the insides to the foot controller they sell? Just a thought Dan

    If you are worried that it will fall apart in your hands, rest assured it won't. If you "love" and not just "like" the feel of it, and the sound of it then get it. Only you know what you love. If you "love" some other guitar better, but that one...(more)

    look on e-bay for a pro tone squier strat. they only made them for like 1 maybe 2 years, then fender discontinued the line because they were better quality than their fenders! and cheaper! They had an ash body, sealed tuners, and alnico pups, ju...(more)

    I too have run across cheapo guitars that are extremely nice to play, and i have bought a couple of them and use them when playing out. I bought a rogue prs copy at a pawnshop for about $200 and changed out the pickups with a jb and jazz, push/p...(more)

    You most likely are going to need an E.D.I. box,(electronic direct interface) If you are going from the back of your amp into the mixing board. Your clean sound without one will sound fine, but with distortion you will have a nasal, wimpy sound ...(more)

    Bryan, We use instrument cables from our processors to the board. The only problem that I first had was that I was using an old zoom 3030 processor when we began doing this, the clean patches sounded fine, but the distortions were weak and "nas...(more)

    The PA is the most important part of the whole bands' makeup IMHO. it is what the crowd hears. If it's crappy, you are gonna sound crappy. With that said Here's what my band uses. 4 mackie 1400 amps 2 jbl eons 15" unpowered 2 jbl mid and high ra...(more)

    Greg,if YOU like it what difference does it make if I have a bad opinion of it? The nice thing about a $250 guitar is that you have more $ to spend on electronic parts to experiment on it. If the neck, action, weight distribution, and overall co...(more)
