I could go without the absurd amount of abalone on it, but otherwise it's ultra solid.






    I don't have mine any more. I had to sell it to pay rent a few years back and have never seen another one. Low five



    I had an EMG 81/89 (split coil) set in it. It was the only time I liked EMG pickups.

Sounds noticeably better on the 15w setting as well.



      Obligatory pic:







      And here's a quick clip. Starts with the gain around 10oclock boosted by the LTD, then no boost, then gain on about 2-3oclock, I think I kick the LTD back on for like 3 seconds (should be able to hear the switch), then neck pickup for some poorly intonated Weedeater riffs.



      Used a Schecter C-1, 2x12 with 75w Celestions, and a rockband mic haplessly draped over the front straight into audacity.

      Awesome, congratulations. Rockband microphones ftw. Listening now.

      Nice. Glad You dig.




      Yeah, that's what I'm thinking. I don't particularly want sparkly jangly pick-ups, which is why I'm swapping out the Seymour Duncans, but I do like the vintage-voiced humbuckers and single coils that have a bit more push and grunt.



      And as regards the Badascan, I just another massive jam on it. I maxed out my amp and completely tore it up. I never thought I'd ever admit to this, but I think I prefer the Badascan like others do.

      • Cool man, the Badascan is definitely more more...The Pharaoh is less more.

Unfortunately, reality will reenter too soon and these sonic masturbations won't even become part of the canon of unlistenedto songs my band plays anyway. As depressing as that might sound, I'm actually okay with it- an old college roomate that might be sending me some acid has got me on a 'positive thinking trip' lately, which is why i'm semi-drunkenly going through the riffstash anyway.




          I was just talking to someone that records everything about how I record almost nothing. Like whether or not it actually sticks is part of the filter. Concepts so often seem to end up getting accidentally recycled and rehashed all the time so I just figure if it's in me somewhere and it's worth it it will show up eventually. Whenever I sit down and really try and work something out by recording it it ends up completely overwrought. That said I'll use the phone to take down a random thought here and there if just to get myself going later.

            It can be a genetic defect. Seen several athletes with it, just bad vasoconstriction when it gets cold. Solution: Wear some gloves

            • Trey, that Orange Dark Terror actually sounds really good. Funnily enough, it's the first clip I've heard of it that I like. I might have to keep my eye out for one to try sometime.

                  Yeah - it's one of the first trades I've done that has seriously been in my favor. And you should definitely get some red tolex for the redbear. It would be the very definition of snazz.










                  i was thinking red or orange with a new front grill peice. salt and pepper grill of course.

                            • I made a meathead clone today. I think I messed up because it isnt a huge mondo fuzz, but it is a really tight bassy overdrive/fuzz thing. for those who have played meatheads before, how fuzzy are they? this one that I made sounds really great for doomy rhythm played fairly quietly. it adds some space and bigness to the sound too... is this right?



                              I made it for pelliot. this one is called the "turkey baster full of semen" and the knob is labelled "baste"
