  1. I am only a beginner and I very want to learn guitar good. I practice a lot but my fingers get sore a lot. Is there something can help my fingers. Thanks
  2. I'm not a Death or Pantera fanboy by any means, but i have to confess i like the sound of a solid state growl. There's something distinctive in there that's completely lacking in the more recent 8-string-through-6505 generation of metal music. I've also gathered they're cheaper and theoretically lower maintenance. But am i missing something else? Or are valves mostly just popular for their clearer and more melodic sound? And yes, i have the experience of a 4-year-old bassist.
  3. I'm getting ready to start my 4th and 5th builds and at that point where I think I'll be doing this for some years to come. I'm thinking its time to gain the ability to make and slot my own fretboards. Doing a little research it seems I have four options. A. The LMI slotting jig at $180 plus $35 per additional template. B. The Stewmac Fret Slotting jig package at $180 plus $40 for templates. C. LMI Power slotting system with plans for the jig for $193 plus the cost of wood for the carriage. D. The stew mac Table saw blade @ $88.00 plus $40 for the fret scale templates and the cost of woods for the carriage and not very detailed instructions. It seems the cheapest way to go is option D and I'd have to do some configuring to my saw each time I wanted to cut slots. I'd also have to do this with option C. I'd like some opinions on this from those of you that slot fretboards themselves. Remember I'm on a budget ( who isnt?) Also if anyone has plans for a slotting jig that they could pass on to me I'd love to look at them.
