    Toneriders for HH Strat??

    Planning a conversion of my SSS strat to a HH. I find Toneriders to be great bang for the buck so considering these. I guess the Alnico 2 and Alnico 4 and the Rocksongs would be of consideration. I like some clean and light gain tones but also Rock/Heavy Rock crunch. I like my tones pretty...

    Recommend me a pattern picking song

    I’m talking about songs with arpeggiated chords... I’ve been neglecting this type of practice for a long time and want to improve. I spend to much time on lead guitar rather than rhythm. Not talking about Travis picking where it’s alternating thumb and fingers, but similar patterns with...

    A Strat Journey.. Least played guitar to No .1

    This guitar started out as a Japanese strat with all original parts, it had vintage frets and a 7.25 radius. I didn’t really bond with it but kept it and slowly did mods. All these mods have happen over 5 or 6 years. It has evolved into my No1 player. First was some proper shielding I put a...

    G&L Bluesboy pickups sorted!!

    Ive had a couple of posts about this axe before. It’s a tribute model. I originally changed the bridge to an SD Jerry Donahue and SD Jazz in the neck. Loved the JD but the Jazz was lifeless and dull. Finally got around to getting a SD PRail with two push/pulls installed. The results are a lot...
