Re: NGD (project)

Haven't found a Rutles in the wild at an estate sale yet!

These are generally crap, but I like the fretwork practice and pickup testbed idea. Drill the pickup route all the way through the body and rig up a clamp so you can load pickups in from the back without the need to remove/loosen strings.

Re: PSA: Squier CV 60s Jag

In these pics the XII looks more like the Pao Ferro that was on my old (now Shad’s) Vintera Jaguar.

Actually looks quite nice- I’m usually not a fan of Indian laurel- purely a visual thing (my Jazzmaster has one but I’m not sure how long that neck will last on it)

Re: NGD: SubZero Rogue VI

Nice work indeed - looks great - I like the look of the burst and how the outer color bleeds into the center with some of the grain.

Re: ...so shortscale don't talk about Vintera II?

Yep. Thanks for that - I knew it was wrong comparing in separate photos, but seeing side by side directly makes it easier to explain.... I have no clue why it's so damn hard to get a stripe right. Fender Japan can do it: http://images.reverb.com/image/upload/s--SzS28kmm--/f_auto,t_supersize/v1693489...

Re: ...so shortscale don't talk about Vintera II?

Yeah I don’t know what I was thinking- it definitely looks contoured the more I see it, I was probably just looking for a reason not to want another guitar. :lol:

Re: ...so shortscale don't talk about Vintera II?

Someone on an offset Facebook group posted these and I swore it looked 100% slab to me when I first saw it, but now I can’t really tell. Nobody responded to my comment asking if it was slab. I do know the Pawn Shop competition bass reissue some years ago was a slab, as was the Mikey Way bass I had. ...

Re: ...so shortscale don't talk about Vintera II?

Comp mustangs should have forearm contours. The stripe doesn’t really make sense otherwise.

Re: Incoming NKD x2

:lol: So the CK61 - one thing I love about it is there are 20 banks with 8 patches each, and only the first 10 are loaded. So last week I spent a few hours making new patches for all of the Haunted Cat songs in our current live set and named them after the titles, then dropped those in setlist order...

Found a suitcase *almost* the perfect size so I no longer need to stretch the zipper around the massive Valco fuzz. $5 at an estate sale:

Re: Incoming NKD x2

The CK61 arrived just in time to check it out on my 15 minute work break. It’s not as sexy as the Hydrasynth but I think this is the one I needed more. When I sold my Triton Le, this is exactly the kind of thing I wanted to replace it. So easy to program and use live. Not needing to dig through coun...

Re: Incoming NKD x2

The Hydrasynth arrived Friday morning on my birthday - I haven't been able to stop playing it, but as limitless as it feels, I find myself missing a lot of the classic typical synth sounds. Most of the patches I played are inspiring to where I'll just spontaneously play something that sounds cool (t...

NKD x2

So I did a bit of a birthday splurge….but I’ve also been selling a lot of my other boards…recently sold my JU-06, Korg Poly61, RS-09, CZ-101, Triton LE. I’ve never been truly happy with my rig in Haunted Cat. I’ve gone back and forth with a tiered setup, for the longest time I was using a Triton LE ...

Re: pictures of your gear here

New board: I've heard that all the cheap nano format octave pedals are not very good. How do you find the Mooer? That’s probably for the OC-2/3 style octave down pedals (maybe also the pitchfork style like Freddy had) The V1 Tender Octaver is well regarded and basically an EHX Micro Pog, IIRC they ...

Re: pictures of your gear here

Nice. How’s the Deadbeat? Jack of all trades master of none. I usually leave it on detune for subtle chorus, but all of the other sounds besides phaser and flanger (not because I don’t like flanger/phaser, it’s just particularly bad versions of both IMO) are very usable and handy to have on the boa...

Just wondering Mez- did you find out if Kim went for the pro-setup option when she bought them? They offer that as an additional cost- wondering if that’s why they were so nice out of the box or if it’s just standard Either way they both look great, I think I prefer the evolution of the shape on the...

nice! I know I was crapping on those 4 weeks ago but I’ve seen a few pics on Facebook groups and I think it works better in person.

Re: NGD: 1968 Kustom K200 (and bonus Ibanez GAX30)

^ yeah I already love it as is, so I don’t plan on a refin even though it’s be guilt free from a preservation standpoint. There’s evidence in the sound hole of this originally being blue or green of some sort Maybe like this: IMG_8514.jpeg Oddly enough my best/favorite guitars tend to be boring/natu...
