    Rattly Nut!

    Hi everyone, So I have this 2017 Bernie Marsden PRS SE that had a terrible stock nut on. About a year ago I had it changed to a Tone Ninja which is much better cut although the tone hasn't changed one way or the other. In the past few days though I noticed a rattle coming from the low E right...

    My favourite rhythm guitarist

    The late great Rick Parfitt, impeccable timing and unbelievable stamina. Just an absolute powerhouse of a guitarist. And he played a Tele with a weird wraparound bridge which looks so freaking cool. The power and drive in this rhythm part always amazes me. If anyone ever tells you Quo stuff is...

    And The Healing Has Begun

    Great version of this song here, really interesting stuff going on in the background: One of the key differences I always think between a truly professional band at the top of their game and your average band is the drive they create. Even though it's a slow song the whole song just drives...

    Interesting (To Me) Website I Found Today

    I'm not sure if this will be of interest to anyone other than me, but I found this website that tries to locate the exact spot famous album covers, or just famous photos in general were taken. As the name suggests, there's a heavy NYC leaning. I actually found it whilst looking to see where...

    Baja Pickguard

    A couple of months ago I picked up this 2016 Baja, virtually mint condition. This is the first Baja I've ever played and I love it. Strangely even though it's mint, I'm the fourth owner, it was traded around Ireland a bit before finding a home with me. When I look up reviews of the Bajas the...

    Have you ever taken a break?

    Have you ever taken an extended break from playing guitar or music in general? I started playing when I was 13, I'm 37 now and have never really stopped, there was a time when I barely touched a guitar as I was playing 5 string banjo but I've never not played an instrument. I'm kind of bored of...

    Dirty Pickups = Tone?!

    I was reading this Guardian article earlier about musicians and the bond they have with their instruments and I read what I thought was a rather odd quote by Brittany Howard: https://www.theguardian.com/music/2020/feb/20/it-feels-like-an-extra-limb-musicians-on-the-bond-with-their-instruments...

    Stay With Me - The Faces

    Rod, Ronnie and Kenney Jones closing the Brits last night. Have to say, I really enjoyed this. Obviously some of the energy is gone but for three guys in their seventies I have nothing to complain about!

    Neal Schon Nocaster

    Does anybody else follow Neal Schon on Instagram? Over the last year or so he's been on a guitar buying rampage, new (old) guitars posted pretty much everyday and they're all so clean. Today he posted what has to be the cleanest 51 Nocaster I've ever seen, of course in hand it might not be quite...

    Vintage Joe Does

    What do we think of this semi Strat semi Blackguard model? Personally I'm impressed at the price point and the imagination, but it's not something I'd really want for myself: https://vintageguitarsrus.com/collections/joe-doe/products/joe-doe-punkaster I've never heard of Joe Doe, the rest of...

    John Moreland

    So about eighteen months ago I was staying up late one night, I'd had a few beers and was down a YouTube rabbit hole. I can't even remember how I got to this guy but I loved this song, then streamed his whole High On Tulsa Heat album and loved the whole album. This is nothing like the style of...

    Fret King Country Squire Semitone Special

    Picked up one of these ever so snappily named T styles a few weeks ago and am loving it so far. It's a thinline with a Broadcaster style pickup in the bridge, Strat in the middle and a PAF in the neck. There's also a Varicoil which boosts the bridge by 30% and adds some mids, or rolls down the...

    Pickup review question

    Hi all, I've been playing guitar for a long time but have only recently started doing any modding and getting into pickups in general. I saw a review for some relatively cheap (but a household name brand in the world of guitar players) single coil pickups on Amazon with the following review...

    1984 Squier JV

    Hi all, So I'm looking at getting a 1984 Squier JV in two tone sunburst, only thing is it's been slightly modified. The pickups have been changed to Lindy Fralins and the neck has been sanded to give a satin finish. Would this make a big difference to what you'd be willing to pay? I'm thinking...

    Think I wired something wrong...

    Hi all, So I've never modded any of my guitars before but I decided to replace the pickups on my Bernie Marsden PRS SE. This has two volumes, one tone and a three way selector. I literally just unsoldered the old pickups and soldered the new ones to the same place (ground to the back of the...

    Sorry guys, you're not welcome!

    Just saw this ad for musicians on the local musicians wanted page. Gave me a chuckle anyway! http://musolist.com/161494-Dublin-Band-wants-Musician Brand snobbery is definitely still alive and well!

    Got myself a 52!

    Hi everyone, Just thought I'd put up some pics of my new (well new to me!) AV 52. Not great pictures I know, planning on doing some better pictures of all my guitars soon, just need to get some spare time! Loving this guitar so far, clean it just sounds amazing! Play mainly blues and...

    Am I the only one...

    Who keeps all their guitars totally stock? I've never changed a thing on any of my guitars, bar the strings obviously. And this isn't me being against modding, I'm just kind of scared to mess with anything! To be honest, I've probably sold a lot of guitars I didn't care for that I could have...

    Uneducated but wanting to learn!

    Hi everyone, Well after years of being a Strat player I'm finally going to make the move and trade my Strat for a Tele. I've lined up a deal already with a guy who has a 52 Vintage Re-issue Tele and wants to trade for my Strat (plus a bit of cash) but I'm wondering if there's anyway for me to...
