Re: NGD - LTD Viper 256P

Nice axe! I've been dreaming of an SG Special since the time when the only source of information on vintage guitars was shitty crude web sites with crappy photos and pages from old Gibson catalogues.

Re: Interesting Duo-Sonic Pickups

Nice, we'll wait! Because of how long the typical delivery from Aliexpress takes I sometimes forget I ordered something and don't feel excited about the thing, but I hope the pickups will live up to the expectation. Pickup makers on Aliexpress seem to have significantly improved their game. Their pr...

Re: Guild Polara - anyone played one?

Vintage Guilds are still relativelyy underappreciated. After WW2 Epiphone and Gibson were the two top shelf jazz guitar manufacturers with Epiphone being generally favoured more by pro jazz guitarists. The craftsmanship was thought to be superior to Gibson's and the guitars to be more prestigious. F...

Haha, YES! Or like it's made out of hard candy or something.

How does it feel? Is it heavy or light? What is the neck like and how does it sound?

Re: westcreek guitars Amazon radness (update it got here)

Looks nice, although nothing really gets close to that Jagstang Daphne Blue. All Squiers and other cheap guitars are either significantly darker or much lighter. This one is probably closer to Sonic Blue.

Re: westcreek guitars Amazon radness

If Amazon got hold of the manufacturer who makes guitars for Thomann, this guitar might be as good as any Squier or Epiphone which is three times more expensive

Re: Always on pedals, a popular option?

They are great pedals and usually work nicely with any dirt/fuzz pedal helping to tighten them up, but I'm not sure about Fuzz Face as they are notoriously finicky.
