Pretty instrument.  Schecters have really nice necks, almost bought one (ended up with an LTD instead)

I deleted that extra post for you

Thank you! Please do so.. I'm not very familiar with forum yet. Thankfully it works finally. Yes, the neck is thin and fit my hands well. And I like its vintage style.

I love Parker guitar too. I saw Jonas has one..jealous. As a designer, the form of Parker guitar it is just perfect!

Nice looking guitar, great vintage look.

If I can get a good picture, I should post a picture of my Squier Bass.

You designed that? That's a really nice unique design.

Thank you, Unitorn. I have original ideas but I have a hard time to make them to be mature, practical, and rigorous.

I've bought a few more since the last one I posted.

Reverend Stu D. Baker

Reverend's own p90 pickups, 24.75" scale

I actually got to meet the owner of Reverend Guitars, Ken Haas. Very cool guy.


ESP LTD EC-1000 ET

this guitar is equipped with an Evertune bridge. Stays in tune no matter what…neck can change, strings get old…you can literally pick the guitar up by the strings and shake it hard, if the bridge doesn't rip away from the guitar ( Tongue ) it's still in tune.


1986 Carvin V220…the guitars that Craig Chaquico from Jefferson Starship used to play

this one has a Kahler Flyer tremolo that someone put heavier springs in, stays in tune really well.
the wood is Hawaiian Koa, my favorite guitar wood Smile

Nice, what kind of pedals are those?

Also, love the look of that green guitar. Would love to get a nice green bass someday.

Never heard of Proco Rat, what kind of sound do you get with that? I've been interested in playing around with more pedals. 

I just have two pedals right now, a Boss Mega Distortion and MXR Fullbore Metal. The MXR is what I mostly use, been playing riffs that sound right out of Earth Pentastar with the tones I can get with it.

"boosting" = no distortion from the pedal, you are just using it to shape the EQ (cut bass mostly) and increase the output in order to get a tighter tone from your amp

but here's what the distortion from a rat sounds like:



they rule for bass guitar too

So how does boosting work, just with specific boost pedals or any pedal? Are those Proco Rat pedals in the videos different from what you use? I don't think it's something I've ever done before.

Those in the videos sound great though, especially when coupled with an Orange. I'll have to look into getting one.

You want a pedal with an EQ that cuts bass and raises mids.  Most common/classic are an Ibanez Tubescreamer or Boss SD-1.  You just turn the distortion on the pedal to 0, volume to max, tone knob near noon.  Oldest thrash metal tone trick in the book.

Try it with what you have, might work alright
