Here's a funny quote that a 8 string tab said "7 Strings are for pussies". That is funny as hell although I have a hard time imagining how horrible that sounds. What the hell does it sound like? I could hear some dissonance in G so imagine F with a Bass. Who needs a guitar? Might as well be in a ban...

Plus, double stops are hard to do if you do it like a hard tail. Just bend both strings and get it in tune. I do double stops just fine. BUT....they are out of tune....I never said you couldnt do them....but its near impossible to get them to be in tune, and that KILLS my ear. The only way I found ...

There area always people who will push things one way or the other. Not all politicians are corrupt, not all conservatives like President Bush, and not all guitarists see those as tricks. There are guitarists who I see use these ways of expressing emotion as tricks. To me Kirk Hammett is a good exam...

I think the Floyd Rose is a godsend. Its no big deal for me to tune. The floyd rose is always in perfect tune. Even if a string breaks, I'd replace it and it was in perfect tune. Plus, double stops are hard to do if you do it like a hard tail. Just bend both strings and get it in tune. I do double s...

Its funny too how gullible people say "Whoa it works". I'd say "No duh you idiot. If you practice anything everyday you're eventually gonna get better! Only difference between u and I is that I didn't pay money for it HAHA" thats what I would say.

Yea there is no way to truely master your instrument playing shit that can be learned. Nothing hard can be earned easily or everyone would have it. If mastering guitar was easy, wouldn't everyone be a Steve Vai?

the pickups are the same distance and I used the same pick on all guitars. There are no differences except that the Evo II isn't as hot ass the stock pickups. I'm just going to have it checked by a professional

how do you take the pickup out when the strings are in the way? And its a floyd rose so I'm not taking the strings out. And who has the official schematics for the Evo II for an Ibanez RG1570? I've asked this before and JemGirl has helped but I want a picture or an idiot proof explanation to wire th...

the idiot who installed my pickup in All County Music store installed it as a single coil. I took it back and he fixed it up out of improvisation instead of looking at the official blue prints. I'm not the one who soldered it. Yea the pickups were a little hotter. I'm just gonna take it to Guitar Ce...

It was as close as possible to the strings and it still wasn't hot compared to the stock pickups. instead the signal and sustain faded in like 3 seconds.

there is something wrong with the setup then isnt there...?
