If you put a pair of DiMarzio's into a crafter, you'd have doubled the amount you paid for your guitar.
It isn't worth it for the actual sound improvement you get.
Hehe thats true, although I dont know whether to get another guitar or just upgrade my crafter at the moment. Im looking into something to play heavier stuff, at the moment the bulk of my music is punk rock, but recently I've been getting into Metallica and Trivium, I'm learning how to play that sort of stuff at the moment - If I was going for a new guitar I was thinking of getting one of Kirk Hammets signature models, the cheapest is about £500, but I dont know if that is any good. (It is probably much much better than my Crafter though). What would you recommend, some guy was going to sell me a budget ESP (I think its called JTP or something like that) with passive EMGs for £300, hmm, maybe I should have bought that.... (BTW I'd like to learn some Satriani and Steve Vai too when Im good enough)
What's the view on fixed bridges? I've heard bad things about floyd roses and you lose the tuning after a few times. Are floyd roses really worth it, most stuff you can do on fixed except the dropping of notes.
A Floyd Rose is good if it is a real Floyd Rose and you take good care of it. Cheaper guitars tend to come with "licensed" imitations which aren't anywhere near as good as the real thing. Also you have to be very careful when adjusting them (never when the strings are under tension) or it will lose it's knife edge and never properly return into tune.
My old guitar had a pretty poor one which soon stopperd working, so I converted it to a fixed bridge using a piece of wood . But my newer one has a proper Floyd Rose and it is awesome, believe me.
ok, I was thinking of compiling a TSR guitar society music library, i.e. if you have recorded your self playing on the guitar, and wouldn't mind showing off your talent ( ).
What you guys could do is send your music files to my hotmail account and I'll upload them onto a site to host. Then I can put a link next to your usernames on the front page of the society (here). The link will direct you to the download page, thus you can therefore download it!
What do you guys think?
Problem is the site I have in mind only allows 500mb of downloads a month, which I'm not sure is enough, if you have any better sites in mind then please tell.
Seems alright for it. I couldn't find out how long they keep the files on for, most of the free ones delete them after a period of inactivity (which would be a PITA), but if they don't do that then it should work fine and dandy.
