The S1 pickup in the middle position, what's the deal with it?!
It seems to be noiseless but I can't find anything about its description to say so.
Not complaining at all I just wonder how Ibanez can make them so quiet (if it's not noiseless)
Really really want to get a Tele.
Since I'm getting older now (39) I'm gravitating towards more melodic music. The shred doesn't really interest me as much now as it just tends to sound a bit dull and everyone seems to be doing it.
I'm after some advice from people who have experience with...
Hello guys I have a problem.
Not long had my dsl40cr and it's never been played with the master volume past 2.
Today the red light on the power switch has begun to go off and on.
Amp is turned on but the red light isn't!
Has anyone had this issue before and is there a fix?
I'm not too bothered...
Hi guys, here to pick your brains and after looking through the previous topics I can't see anything that similar.
I currently use just an overdrive with my DSL but as the reverb is so weak I need a reverb pedal.
I'll also be using my Overdrive pedal which is a Boss Sd-1 and it's...
Hi folks, I'm after some advice on an attenuator.
I'd like to run my Dsl40r hot to get the best tone but at quiet levels for home use.
Does anyone use an attenuator and what would you recommend?
Any other Charvel owners hate the output jack position?
Constantly needs tightening up and have to remove the cable everytime to put the guitar down facing upward.
Unfortunately the new 2022 guitars also have this jack position.
I'm after a new strap and like the look of these plus it'll be a lot easier to remove the strap and keep the locking part on the guitar.
Trouble is they're made of that...
Ok so what's the deal with these?
Just checked out the new 2022 guitars from Ibanez and a LOT come with these bridges.
I can see the advantage that they bring but aren't they a pig to set up.
Worse, lot worse than a Floyd and to change string gauge must be even worse.
What's your thoughts?
Just wondering if a technique section would be good on this great forum.
I'm sure there are elsewhere but this is the only guitar forum I've joined since I'm an avid Marshall user.
I say this because I'm struggling to figure out a picking order.
At the moment I'm into learning Iron Maiden solos...
Hello guys and girls, what do you prefer to use?
I've used autosol and microfibre to good use in the past but it's quite abrasive.
I used masking tape (painters tape) on the fretboard before you all go mad haha.
After a metronome that actually sounds pleasing.
What do you use and recommend guys?
I use a Korg MA-2 and an old Seiko SQ50
The Seiko is good but hasn't got an adjustable volume.
Kork sounds really thin and I want to run it over with a steam roller.
This issue applies to all guitars not just the RG.
It arrived with a little issue, can't be bothered re-packaging and paying for posting it back to the shop.
The issue is with the pickup selector switch (5 way).
Sometimes the switch needs an extra nudge to engage the bridge pickup fully.
Hello guys and girls. I've not long had my Dsl40cr and in the process of bedding in the original speaker.
Thought I'd have a play with the Sd1 in front of the amp for a little today and wow!
Set the tone on the pedal to taste, level pretty high at around 75% and the drive around 10%.
Has anyone used one of these?
Some mixed reviews on YouTube of course but the good ones are clearly paid promotions.
What doesn't make sense to me is that putting a load of pedals like this into your amp seems to take away your own amps tone and character.
Is it worth buying a decent amp and...
The issues with the fx loop and volume drop are quite quite common for the dsl and solved by using true bypass pedals.
What delay pedals are best for true bypass?
Currently using a boss dd7 which isn't true bypass and the volume drop is present.
What are you using guys and girls?
Hello guys I've recently purchased a DSL20 combo and not very pleased with it at all.
Bought as an upgrade to my Peavey Valveking 112 as I fancied something a bit more modern.
Plugged in today and very dissapointed.
Not enough gain for fast technical playing
Lots of hiss even at low volume...
