  1. Guitar Nuts ·
    One of the best sites I've seen out there. A wealth of information on everything from wiring guitars to customizing amps. This site comes highly suggested from me.

  2. Fender Mexican Standard Stratocaster ·
    I picked this guitar because I didn't know a lot about guitars. I knew the strat (its an icon)and a few friends of mine had played squires, so I chose it. After playing it, I know I made a good choice. It sounds gorgeous, I love the 5 way swi...(more)

  3. U2 - POP by U2 ·
    This is my favorite U2 album, yes I rank it above achtung baby, joshua tree, and even war. The guitarist is, of course, the edge- so you know what you're getting. Lots of effects, lots of arpeggios. When listening to this album, try not to di...(more)

  6. Dunlop Crybaby GCB-95 Wah ·
    I don't know if I would replace this unit with the same one, I might get a vox wah, because I think I like the smaller sweep of the vox's I've tried. This one gets a little too trebbly for my taste when I use it with the bridge pickup on my str...(more)

  7. Boss DS-1 Distortion ·
    I wouldn't purchase this pedal again. It gives a really harsh distortion sound that I don't really care for. If you're a new player and you're sick of your practice amp sound, this would be a good cheap buy for you, but I wouldn't recommend th...(more)
