What does he mean by tilted? The ESP guitars are designed like the Gibson guitars with a neck angle. If that's what he's talking about, find a new luthier. If he can't properly setup a guitar with a neck......MORE »
If you're not gigging, have you considered wiring the Line 6 pedals through the effects loop?
If you do gig, have you considered getting an all-in-one unit to replace all of those Line 6 units? I use a G-major in my......MORE »
I suspect it's a fake, but I don't know enough about the early to mid 80s ESP guitars to say for sure. My instinct is that even if it is an ESP (which I doubt), it's probably not worth the $700 it's up for.......MORE »
It's a 220 body shape. I don't know the year. It knob layout is similar to Gibson, but the earliest MX designs I'm aware of have the same step at the neck joint as a Gibson as well. It wasn't until later......MORE »
Any or all of those pedals act as a buffer. You don't have a true-bypass pedal in your rig (except for maybe the Polytune). If you feel you're suffering from tone loss, cut out one (or all) of the Line 6......MORE »
Well, in my experience you only really need to like two of "The Big Four" and can still consider yourself a metalhead.As I said before, there's more value in that price range if you shop used. But the LTD 200 or 300......MORE »
The body wood of most Les Paul and Explorer shapes is mahogany, but the Les Paul has a maple top. Pickups that work in one of those will be fairly similar in the other. What sort of styles of music do you play,......MORE »
I always come off as a jerk when people ask about upgrading inexpensive guitars, but it's honest advice:Don't buy pickups, save the money and put it toward a better guitar. The benefit of upgraded pickups in that Epi......MORE »
Even if the electronics aren't, by 2008 EMG had quick swap connectors on the pickup. I don't have any experience with the 57/66, but I think they're just the same 3 wire connection as the 81/85. Shouldn't need to......MORE »
Custom shop made for the Japanese market. Early to mid 90s. Not sure of the body or neck wood, I'm not sure if he went Gibson secs (mahogany body and neck) or his KH-2 specs which are adler body, maple neck. ......MORE »
Yeah, but Gibson also recommends you let a computer tune your guitar.Again, YMMV. I prefer it decked. I've never noticed a difference in tone, and the "tension" difference is enough to bother me.......MORE »
I've never experienced "tone robbing" with a decked TOM. Some people like it decked because it reduces the compliance (adds preceived tension) to the strings. I prefer them decked. Your milage may vary.......MORE »
They just polish the ebony really well. In a few weeks it'll wear down.
The poly over the nut is common for ESP. An experienced luthier will be able to replace the nut without any issues. That's what razor......MORE »
