    Must see places in Memphis?

    Hey all, Back in April my youngest(the guitar player) was diagnosed with a brain tumor that has required 2 surgeries so far. We will be leaving on Sunday to go down to St Jude in Memphis for some follow up care. I will be there with her for the first 2 weeks and then I have to come home leaving...

    NGD

    Last night I settled on a NOS SE Angelus Custom from Dave's. It has a really cool top with some interesting curl figure to it that the camera just can't capture. The rosewood back is almost black under normal lighting, the ebony is beautiful. It sounds really nice and plays super smooth, can't...

    Slight binding

    My core custom 24 binds ever so slightly at the nut. With a good lube job it's stable but it's not quite perfect. That said, it's so slight that I haven't been able to justify leaving it with a luthier for a week. The rest of the setup is right where I want it so no extra benefits there. I don't...

    Moving, lessons becoming a headache

    As we get closer and closer to making a big move I am looking into lessons, mainly for my daughter. I could definitely still use them but could probably get away with doing online stuff and seeing a teacher on an as needed basis if I had to. I can find exactly zero teachers within an hour of...

    Backing tracks

    Is there a ways to play backing tracks through something like an archon? Maybe through the loop with some sort of aux in box or something? Not sure if anything like that even exists.

    Just about time to start looking at houses... I have a couple things that I need to do. 1. get a proper office for work 2. have a place for my "stuff" 3. have a place for the guitars, piano, possibly drums... Now... I would be cool with this being all the same place. I think it would be pretty...

    Balanced Tension Strings

    Anyone tried these yet? D'addario has a bunch of them out and I was thinking maybe trying them but it would likely require a full setup change so haven't yet...

    Wanna hear about a frustrating day?

    So I wanted to try out the Curt Mangan strings and there are 4 dealers in the extended area... You know what this idiot did? I didn't call first... Drove an hour to the first one and he was fresh out... Drove to the second one and didn't have them either... Drove to #3 and all they has were...

    Buying that next core...

    I've had my custom 24 for a year now and it has basically replaced my se 100%... I have been thinking about a sc245 or some such single cut but I wonder if I would play it enough to make it worth it... How do you put down your best guitar for your other best guitar? Do you ever feel guilty? The...

    PRS Cable

    So I had been using a gold plated planet waves cable for quite a while as well as a few fender cables over the years. The last cable I had didn't last but maybe a month... I decided to splurge and bought a PRS branded cable. First of all the thing is MUCH thinner than anything I have ever used...

    custom 24 trem bar and the case...

    I've actually been using the trem a bit lately and was curious before I tried anything that might break something... Is the case built to put the guitar in with the arm attached?

    grrr

    Caught the charging cable on my tablet and it fell on the corner on one of the screens of my zoom g5 that's only a couple months old and damaged it... I can still see most of what's displayed but not 100% about half the screen is dead... Hate when crap like that happens.

    tension...

    How do you guys Get rid of tension? My picking hand/arm is not too horrible but could be better. My fretting hand/arm all the way up to the shoulder makes me want to just cut the damn thing off... The tension slowly creeps in and causes my fingers so slow down or my accuracy to suffer, I make...

    Bass opinions

    Hi all, My daughter is starting band next year. Our local band program includes electric bass which she sees as the next best thing to playing the guitar(I agree with her). I will very likely buy her either an SE or a Mexican p or j for home/concerts(at a minimum) but she will need something to...
