I have to start off by giving a +1 to back gorath's post.

But for the info you requested: Caparison Horus, 10-46, Eb standard tuning. For all-round playing I prefer tense wound strings, however I...

Two of my mates were in a band some time ago where one used a 7-string tuned standard and the other tuned a 6-string to drop-C#. The goal was simply to provide texture to the guitar parts (where drop...

In regard to the scale length, using the same string guage on a 24 3/4" as opposed to a 25 1/2" will see less tension on the former. However, the same effect can be gained on a 25 1/2" by using a...

Problematic,

A lack of tremolo doesn't really mean lack of quality. The want of a tremolo is open to personal taste. There seems to be a trend at the moment where fixed bridge guitars are more...

JacksonGuitars07, I see your point, mate. ;) But there's mellowing in more than one sense. In this case it's the striving for technical perfection. The only way that we could know if Alexi and co are...

Sometimes as you get older your tastes begin to change and you mellow. I fail to see what's exactly wrong with that except that really. Technical does not equal 'good' depending on the subjectiveness...

The new COB album is tops. It and Freak Kitchen's Organic are three-times-a-day events for me at the moment.

Either you're dangling a fishing line or someone is taking you for a ride.

I've not heard any of his stuff from the last decade or two. May I recommend 'Incantations'.

Agreed, Shreddist, there is no point in doing it and it will be worse in the long run. Cyberwaste, you're better off getting locking machineheads.

Nah, you won't damage it. If for some odd reason you can't tighten them any more, just put some more springs in the back. Just remember it's a bit of a balancing act that takes patience and time.
