  1. Necrobump to remind you that you're a #### retard. Have a nice day.
  2. Well, I've got what looks much like a nocaster, or I guess something along the lines of a 52 reissue tele or what not. Blonde, ash body, classic bridge, gold spaghetti logo. However, I'm not finding out anything on it by the serial number. Serial is located on the back of the headstock, # 04094228 Suggestions?
  3. Update Replaced the Orange 4x12 that my Rockerverb was driving with an Egnater Tourmaster 4x12 due to endorsement from a local Egnater dealer. Picked up an Orange Rocker 30 and Egnater 2x12 solely for the "natural" channel, which will become my clean channel. Still working with the Rockerverb for now, but might be tempted to bring the Egnater Tourmaster 4100 with me on tour. Only time will tell if I'm ready to part with my Orange for two months.
  4. Yeah, sounds like the foot controller is the way to go. Ipod would be just as bad as a CD I would say, and our drummer's a moron so that's out of the picture. Thanks for the responses, I'll take a look into it.
  5. Setting up minor sample for live shows that can be controlled via footswitch? My band has a few songs in which we recorded some keyboard parts and some additional percussion in some of the breakdowns (because we're so metal) and I really don't want to lack it on the live sound, but we really don't have need for a full time keyboard player either. I've looked into loopers and such, but I'd like to avoid having any sound other than my guitar coming through my cab. Suggestions?
  6. They sound extremely close to the point where I would consider buying one as a backup amp. The only thing keeping me wary is that it's just glorified Behringer.
  7. Keep in mind, the Metal Zone sounds like someone took a digital #### right on your head. For what you're after, the DS-2 sounds nice. If you're after a little more gain I'd take a look at the Mega Distortion. Keep in mind of course, that this is all opinion (except, the Metal Zone does sound like a digitized turd) so by all means, try before you buy.
  8. Unless you play in a band that's all show and no talent, the clip-lok will work just fine.
  9. Thanks. Not gonna lie I'm probably going to have something different come next tour, but for now this rig is doing just fine. We're a metal band, but I'm not into the stereotypical metal rig... Never really have been. Up until last year or so all I would play are strats. I found with the V and Explorer I could play a little quicker, and of course the Soloist is a superstrat, so it's familiar ground!
  10. Right now my guitars are : 1967 Gibson Flying V Reissue, loaded with Blackouts, Jackson Soloist, also loaded with Blackouts, and a 1976 Gibson Explorer Reissue... Guess what kind of pickups? And of course as some of you old guys remember, I've got my trusty MIM strat. Orange Rockerverb 50h through an Orange 412 cab. Only effect I use is a tubescreamer for a bit of a lead boost at times.
  11. Have you considered looking at the Blackouts? I'm thinking an active pickup is going to accomodate a metal tone in a JS moreso than a passive will. To my ears most active pickups sound similar regardless of what guitar they're in, so consider that option. EMG's, Blackouts, etc are namely geared towards metal so keep that in mind. You can throw a JB into your guitar, but there's a very likely chance that in the end it's not going to be the necessary tone your after, simply because Dave's guitar at the time likely was nothing like a Jag Stang. It just seems like for a guitar such as the JS, a set of EMG's or Blackouts will probably get you closer to the tone you're after as opposed to passive.
  12. I've got my American strat loaded with a JB Jr and my Standard w/ a hot rails... The JB is much more clear and defined, and the hot rails is for balls out lead. Not so great for rhythm.
