    NGD - Ibanez RG

    So I'm continuing my trade journey with this Ibanez RG350. Picked it up today after swapping my Line 6 POD500X which I rarely used. It has super low action and currently set up in e standard with a blocked off trem, but I'm thinking of putting it in Drop C and using it for some brutal stuff and...

    I found this Washburn Rover in a junk shop yesterday for £40. I obviously haggled and managed to get a fiver off. Gave it a good clean up and new strings last night. Nice little travel guitar for when I’m away.

    NGD and Action Help

    I picked this up from a mate last night for a great price, but the action is super high. I’ve tried to put picture the best I can but could anyone help me getting it lower? Is it a case of truss rod adjustment and or a saddle shave? Of course keeping it 80s Fender. They sound so good.

    Visited Abbey Road Studios

    So, over the weekend a guy I’ve know on Facebook for around 10 years came over from the states to visit Abbey Road for one of their lectures. He invited me along and very kindly paid for my ticket. First time meeting him was awesome and having a wander around the studios was mind blowing...

    Thumb Pain

    I’ve always struggled with thumb cramping when I’m playing the chords that requires the thumb to angle like this. Has anyone had this and if so, how did they overcome it if so?

    New Free SG Day!

    Saved this little guy from being firewood today. The “seller” was giving it away as it has a broken string… I’ll take that anyway thank you very much. She threw in the fender stand too. Result. I’m going to have fun with this.

    Am I the only one that hates clean humbucker tone?

    Surely I’m just going senile? But I don’t like a standard humbuckerler clean tone, they just sound so lifeless and plain to me. strat or tele all day.

    Gary Moore

    10 years ago the world lost Gary Moore. A guitar player that I will never forget first hearing and one that I will always regard as one of the best ever. Thanks, Gary. This solo, to me is the greatest of all time.

Of course driving will be...

    NGD Ibanez Jem Jr

    Here we are! I traded my gold Dean Hardtail for this Jem last night, in hopes I can use it for trade bait for my Dean ML. But I’m slowly falling in love with it, which isn’t the plan! :rolleyes: But that’s not necessarily a bad thing, it’s great. I would have loved it with gold hardware and...

    Bittersweet Sales?

    Has anyone ever had that sale of gear that you regret constantly but it ended up well in the end? I remember selling my Dean ML years ago to fund my strat project (which I still play daily) but I waited 4 years to buy that Dean so I’ll always miss it. But as I have my strat, it was worth it...

    Something I’ve been working on tonight

    I’ve been noodling all evening while watching tv and actually played something that didn’t sound like noodling. So I expanded on it and this is what I have so far. Calling it Juniper as that’s what I was thinking about... juniper berries.

    Way Volume Drop

    Morning all, finally picked up another wah last night but unfortunately there’s a big volume drop when engaged. I’ve put it before other pedals and after, but still there’s the drop... Can anyone tell me why? It’s just a run of the mill gcb95, but my old gcb95 didn’t have the volume drop...

    I saw this on Facebook marketplace for a great price this morning so I went to pick it up! I wanted a cheap kick about acoustic for camping, beach days and general tomfoolery so my Fender can stay in the house. not a bad guitar at all, sounds nice and bright and plays super well. I’ll upgrade...
