  1. Yeah, most of my stuff was stolen quite a few years back. Bass, 3 guitars, half-stack, practice amp, and 2 pedals. All I have, and used, was in that description in the op. Boss DD-7 @ Lvl: 1o'clock, F.Back: 3o'clock, D.Time: 1o'clock, analog mode Boss MD-2 @ Lvl: 4o'clock, Tone: Maxed(bottom 1o'clock), Distortion: 1o'clock, Gain Boost: 2o'clock And yes, That little crate amp is the only functional one I have, atm. It's not that it's bad, it's just not very big, so it gets pushed futher than it should, probably. It also has a really loud hum when idle, as you can hear before I start playing in the video. I usually have the the bass cranked to nearly max, the mids scooped out at about 3-4, high mids closer to 4-5, and the treble at 7ish. The fact that the audio and video is recorded on a phone probably isn't doing anyone any favors either hahaha. I do have an oolllddd fender sidekick amp, but it wasn't taken care of very well before I got it and it only took me a month or so to completely blow the speaker out, so eventually, I'm going to replace the speaker and start using that again. It has a good amount of power and volume, but its just a disgusting drone in it's current condition. Any speaker recommendations based on someone using a lot of delay, echo, and high gain distortion, without blowing the speaker or mudding up the sound? I play anything from metal, to sludgy grungey punkish stuff, to weird atmostpheric stuff like the video above, which has been the direction I'm heading in more and more when I'm writing seriously. I usually keep things fairly simple as far as playing goes though, because I like to use effects and I want it all to articulate, without getting bogged down. Plus, I try not to write anything I can't play and sing at the same time, because more and more I'm finding it harder to find people worth playing with on an artistic level, and being able to stand people on a personal level haha. It's not that i'm THAT snobby, I've just found that heavy drug users aren't the most reliable or trustworthy bandmates, and that population seems to have taken over my immediate area. I've resigned myself to having to do my own bass, guitar and vocals until I get back to the west coast.
  2. Ah.. lame.. what happened to the link embedding and what have you? oh well. straight link it is. xD
  3. Little vid for anyone who wants to check out the TM JM's sound, or remembers me and would like to hear some offbeat original jams. ha Rough draft as it stands, complete with mistakes, interlude has yet to be added, and adlibbed solo section. (Sue me) ;-P Junky (and nearly blown out) crate amp, Boss MD-2 and DD-7, in case anyone is curious. www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=XV66fDSfbFc Criticism welcome
  4. Hey guys, been like two years since i've been around these parts. But i FINALLY have something to share. ha. threw that last one in there just to show off the grain on the back. i love this thing. i know a few have been posted already, but this one is mine. hahahaha, AND i only JUST noticed i haven't stopped playing it long enough to take the stickers off the neck plate. also, not to be offtopic but, Mad-Mike, should you ever see this, i just put two and two together and figured out you're the dude who wrote hermit. that song is badass, did you have to do anything special to set up your trem for that? i hum that song constantly. Seriously lol
  5. big long now, paper cuts, sifting. i love all nirvana, but if i were to play one live, i'd want a one that just made everyone watching feel strange. especially in this day and age where all i hear are either second rate "core" bands who think they can play metal because last week they learned how to tune to drop d or the same ol' rehashed b.s. 4 chord pop structure. sigh..
  6. tom delonge used one in a semi-hollow gibson model. look up stuff on the new blink album or maybe some angels and airwaves stuff.. don't care if anyone does or doesn't like either of those bands. haha just the only dude i know who you could get a demo of it ha
  7. honestly, i like the mustang bridge. its smooth on the palm and i have always found it more comfy than say a strat bridge with all those screws hanging about. its all personal preferance though. try lots of different guitars at a shop to get a feel for what you do and don't like.
  8. actually, now that i think of it, i still have my old jag-stangs trembar hah.. only proof that i ever had it really besides a tag or something i may have tucked away.. i always hoped i could reunite it with another js but its starting to look like it may never happen.
  9. i liked the mustang trem.. though, i'd like to see a jag setup.. but then why not just buy the new hh then if you want humbuckers.. lord know how expensive a js reissue would be now.. maybe they'd stay exactly the same and just be weird and cheaper lmao..
  10. in these terms, i'm only just finding myself.. im still tinkering around with styles. im a self confessed rhythm player, but i guess thats just to be expected when you start on bass.. just the way i go about it i guess.. i like simple atmospheric rhythm and complex (but not overly) bass driving it on.. lead varys by mood.. same with synth and keys. but to get back on topic, i'd say my jag-stang before it was stolen.. like i've said a million times.. that neck was great.. i'm VERY close to giving up on the jaguar idea and looking for another js because of this fender pricing nonsense.. plus it was always fun to use the floating tailpiece to bend without the trem arm haha.. sigh
  11. que? just saying.. we know the general area to look, if we were to get it and it not be shared as agreed. lame dumb joke, i know
  12. no worries.. its just odd.. it's as though they never existed lol. i'm shocked that i cant find anything on them at all...
  13. my friend has one but doesnt play so he let me borrow it indefinately, looks old as sin .. but i've googled it and nothing came up. anyone ever hear of these and/or know when they were made?? i'm too lazy to pull it apart and look for some markings and theres nothing on the outside thats an indication...
  14. sg is one of the only gibson designs i like but they're too thin for my tastes.. i play too crazy for something like that, i feel i could break one and thats not worth a grand to me.. i do really like firebirds though.. atleast as for as looks go..
  15. Welcome, but you need to be hazed to be a true member. . Lucky you.. i've been wanting a jag for 5 years now and the price increase has made that a near impossibility, so i envy you already, new guy haha. but you have come to the right place.. i dont think you'll have a hard time talking to people around here for hours about jags ha. i dunno about the bridge cover, but you may be able to trade your pg to someone who has a darker one for a cij jag, (if i had the brown, i'd trade you in a second personally.) also, i just came back from la. i was visiting my lady over there. wonderful change of scene. venice kicks ass.. although she'd only let me stay while the sun was out..
  16. i heard that a part of his sound was that the pups were still upside down when he played those flipped strats.. anyone care to comment on that?
  17. lord, i'm thick... i just pondered the what you were trying to convey by saying 'GORED' repeatedly.. had to look at it again 20 minutes later and decided i deserve to be made fun of for that, hahah but yeah, "Go Red," as it were!
  18. i almost bought that exact version and color of toronado, used at a local shop, but it was gone when i came back.. thats happens to me alot..
  19. figured so, seems like that'd be the best configuration in a live environment to me..
  20. i dont we would send it over EVENTUALLY :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D sure you would. and we U.S. and U.K. users are in total agreement with you! victoria, aust.. noted.
  21. could one wire the lead and rhythm circuts as they should be and make the three switches to pup1 on/off, pup2 on/off, coil split on/off? dont know where to start as its not my thing, just saying would that work? and if not, why? ha thats what i figured i'd do with it if i could get one..
  22. no offence or disrespect to ya, fran, but im gonna call shananigans on that one if i may.. i mean.. kust used both schemes ..and while he IS more noted for the blue with red tort, one COULD argue that it comes stock that way.. i dont think stock schemes can really be attributed to anyone, even if it was an obvious preference.. as for mine, i prefer the red on red as well..
  23. well, you still have this cody! i just spent the past month in cali, getting out of the east coast for a bit.. i havent been posting though, or even been checking ebay for my precious offsets because of the price increase causing manic depressive episodes lol.. (actually thats not a joke.) but yeah.. im still here anywho.. just been on vacation and scanning the posts without much to say.. i did hope to see more done though with this one when i came back..
  24. thats pretty much the conclusion i came to as soon as i saw the routes haha. in light of a gorgeous jazzy i saw recently, if i were to have one of these made i think i would go black comp.
