I've had an Epiphone Gothic Les Paul since 2004. Bought it with the money I got for my 21st birthday. I was getting bored with the all black look lately so I decided to buy some parts from random vendors on Amazon and make some cosmetic updates. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

I raised the action a little and set it up in D standard tuning. Feels pretty great.

Welcome back dude. That's basically what brought me back here regularly these last couple of months. Every other social media platform was driving me insane.

Hunter fucking rules. Dude sent me an overdrive pedal that he wasn't using any more (Joyo Baatsin) and threw in a few extra goodies and I just wanted to confirm that Hunter is a great dude and I really appreciate him.

I was fucking around with various EQ settings and distortion/ fuzz combinations on bass and stumbled into a 1994 G.C. Green sound.

Just got an audio interface (was using an iRig HD to record primarily before) and it definitely amplifies the sound and provides some extra clarity. Plus it doesn't give me random outbursts of static hiss that require me to unplug and re-plug in every time I make an adjustment like the iRig did after a while.

Got a Duncan Hot Rails for the bridge position of my Stratocaster. Bought a soldering iron yesterday and installed it myself. First time ever soldering or installing a pickup and it was pretty simple and also fun. Might update some other guitars soon too.

It's going to be a slippery slope of guitar nerddom I'm falling into. I'm already eyeing a Duncan JB for the bridge pickup on my two-humbucker Telecaster. I really like the Hot Rails on the strat it'll be great for loud hard rock and leads with some overdrive cranked but for a beefier rhythm tone I'm gonna go with the JB on the Tele and I can't wait.

I didn’t realize the blue stripe Peavey Bandit I own is considered some special amp now.

So much so these nerds make a pedal clone of it which costs about as much as the amp itself:
