Re: Help. Hidden pick ups

Dino, pickups are usually "hidden" by them being painted the same colour as the guitar, be it one colour, or a graphic. They need to be fairly close to the strings to get a signal. Or you could use digital pickups installed in the bridge and then play only through a Synth unit, like the Roland VG se...

Re: some old rack stuff i've bought............

Genebaby, the Marshall stuff is very ,very good.Maiden and leppard still use them.The Marshall JFX1 you've mentioned is also good, but didn't get too much credit. Don't worry, I know it's pretty cool stuff, but I have a Peavey 50/50 amp and a Digitech 2120 Artist in a rack case that I don't use, an...

Re: Pear guitar replica on eBay.

At NAMM Vinnie thanked his Chinese buyers on his YouTube channel.
But of course there were actually no buyers at all.

Now the Chinese make his guitars for themselves....I wonder if he saw that coming?

Very nice. I find I'm happy with the effects in whatever multi effect unit I'm using at the time.

I have plenty of gear, so lucky I'm not as bad as I am with guitars. Someone local is selling a Marshall set of a Marshall 20/20 , JMP1 and JFX1, all three in a case.....hmmmm...

Re: Pear guitar replica on eBay.

I don't really care for the paint job on this guitar. If the V's were both solid colors, (Silver and Black), I'd probably consider it.
Yes, it's a pretty poor version of the paint Tom does, but it's a cheap copy, so you get that.

Ok, thanks! That kahler bridge is really strange, looks like a trem but no... Yes, it's not a direct, easy fit, but you could get the hole required to fit the trem version of the bridge and that would look factory. The other issue is the lock nut. Either mod for a Floyd nut, or use the Kahler nut t...

Re: Vinnie Was First

He's certainly big on stringless these days, is our Vinnie. I'm guessing he plays at such warp speed that ordinary guitars with strings are just slowing him down, and this is the next evolutionary step in the quest to be mega fast.

Re: How did Vinnie develop his chops?

No idea, but I guess it's really down to having some musical skill naturally in the first place, along with crazy practice.

But, I know of people that can just play like crazy without practicing or knowing how or why they all things. They just can play anything, by ear even. Makes me ill. Lol.
