    SSL certification is now in place so you can all browse securely.

    The server has been reconfigured so that site speeds will improve.

    Notice: Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    Front facing camera on your phone?

    Those usually display the image inverted (so it looks like a mirror) and sometimes they don't un-invert it when you're done shooting.

    Okay, don't pay attention to placement, etc. as this is just an initial iteration to judge the signal path. I've also noticed many youtubes of guitar stuff at home has a cat in the video so I included one trying to decide if the pedal board was scary or not.

    looks like you've got everything covered.

    Is that a wah or a volume pedal?

    That's the Ernie Ball MVP volume. Comes with an out for my tuner pedal, so it's always on, and also I can get up to a 20 decibel boost (I keep it at 0).

    First impressions of the OCD are meh. No hate but no love yet. It was total love when I bought my very first pedal, the Muff.

    POG 2 + Carbon Copy + Super Ego = some awesome easy drones.

    I don't know if I'll have time this weekend but I really want to record some droning and turn them into pads.

    If you ever tire of your CC, you know where to send it. :smarmy: I'll shoot you over my Aquapuss in exchange.

    In the next couple of weeks I'll zip tie a nice low profile powerstrip under the left side for the obnoxious EHX adapters. I also want to get an LED clamp on reading light to shine on the pedals. Next is to start stacking reverbs and delays. Looking at a Wet next maybe.

    Has anyone here played with an Eventide H9 yet?

    No but I had an Eventide Space for awhile. I'm pretty easy going regarding all the "tone-suck" bullshit that goes around, but that pedal really did ruin my base tone. Maybe they've improved the A/D conversion since.

    finished assembling this jazzmaster parts build a few days ago, aimed for a slightly gibson feel.

    Warmoth Neck (wenge + rosewood fingerboard, converted to Gibson scale)
    Mastery bridge and vibrato

    Isn't the bridge in the wrong place if it's Gibson scale?

    Looks very cool though.

    thanks guys. the warmoth neck is configured so i don't have to worry about moving the bridge.

    more info about it:
    http://www.warmoth.com/Guitar/Necks/ConversionNecks.aspx

    been playing on a gibson sg for too long so i preferred the shorter reach of the 24.75" scale length more along with some minor things (strap button on the neck plate). sounds kinda like a cross between an sg with p90s and a regular jazzmaster.

    Gibson string spacing seems a lot further to my hands.

    might be due to the fingerboard radii of different guitar models and brands, and probably playing style too. the warmoth neck has a compound radius which is pretty interesting.

    Fender necks just seem smaller to me with closer strings. It is a weird feeling being a Gibson man for so long.

    Compound radii sound great in theory but I've never had a problem with a standard Gibson 12" radius.

    I haven't played the other two, but the Collings I've played were always really nice, as well as Santa Cruz. On a more Taylor level … though not quite as nice in materials/details as Collings and SC … I think about Larrivee. When I was still in the shop, those early guitars were really fantastic for the money. Haven't played one recently, but as I remember pretty good bang for the buck.



    It's not really about it being a problem, but that the compound radius can facilitate certain techniques and feel depending on the music and individual's style of play. It depends on the string gauge, style of set-up (action, tuning, etc.) and some players just like it. Same, same but different. FWIW, my Pawar has a compound radius, but even that feature is different from other usual compounds.

    How are Warmoth necks and bodies? High quality stuff? Might be the way to go considering I like a hybrid bass. I love you can specify so much, even the finish.
