    Looks like an order will be placed before the end of the week.

    The guitar thread

    I would most likely go for the natural bolt on. It's quirky and I really like it. Yes, Carvin is going direct starting next month. I'm curious to see how it will impact the prices. I have contacted them for a quote as they request on their FB page. That Edwards is really nice looking. I have...

    No, I didn't get the chance. I bought it online from a German retailer. I could have it exchanged for another one, but I didn't feel like it. The Carvin will be a better guitar in just about every way, so I'm not too heartbroken about it.

    With the EVH return to sender, I'm now considering a Jason Becker sig. I wasn't too pleased with my V3 amp, but the guitars are simply killer.

    2015 Australian GP.

    Glad to see Kimi back on pace, even if he had horrible bad luck, what with being hit by Grosjean and then those problems with the left rear wheel. He wasn't the only one with difficult wheel changes though. Mercedes seem set to dominate at least the first half of the season. What's up with Red...

    Man, that looks really, really nice.

    Ooops... I'm sending the EVH back:| It has serious tuning issues when using the Floyd. Life's too short.

    The trussrod wheel should be mandatory for guitars with truss rod adjustment at the body side. I had to tweak the neck of a Japanese Charvel this weekend because it had too much relief. Had to remove the pickguard and the neck. Gave it about an 8th of a turn and reassembled. The neck is better...

    Ownership Verified: LP impulse buys a new car

    Congrats. If you enjoy it half as much as I enjoy my Subaru, you're in for a treat. The Impreza is no longer sold round here, so I ended up in its XV cousin. The standard speaker upgrade is supposedly Kicker speakers, not Harmann Kardon.

    I never had guitars hang from the wall. Don't trust my walls enough... One or two out on a stand, the others live safely in their cases. That being said : you do need all of them on the wall, yeah ;)

    Yes. They're made in Fender's Mexico plant, like the Charvel ProMod models.

    [22x05] February 22nd, 2015

    An easy 9. The news dragged on too long but other than that it was very good. The Peugeot bit was hilarious.

    The "Things that annoy me" thread

    I tried the ipod because the very disappointing OEM headunit in my wife's car has a rather cavalier approach to USB sticks. I have zero issues with the Alpine in my car. Even the OEM unit in the XV worked just as I'd expect it to. It's just that crap, no-name radio in my wife's car that doesn't...

    When I put a USB stick in, it actually plays the album tracks in the correct order... But apparently everybody else knows my car stereo better than I do myself, so I'll just let it go.

    No, I can select "artist" or "album" and it still won't play them in order. It.Just.Doesn't.Work.
