    My thoughts on the Kemper....A+

    I received my Kemper Stage 2 weeks ago now and now that I have had some quality time with it I have to say it's a game changer for me. My Engl Ironball/Two Notes Torpedo setup, although pretty bad ass, is on its way out and never touching another tube amp again. For what I need (bedroom warrior...

    Kemper guys...

    Just ordered a Kemper Stage and started looking at into rig profiles and felt like I had stepped back into the world of impulse responses...way too many options and opinions that I have no idea what to do and can't invest the time needed to get oriented so I need your help. What should I look...

    ESP experts come on in

    I came across a guitar that is labelled as a prototype on the headstock under the SN. I have never seen this before and not sure if legit? Other than that the guitar seems genuine....but with the prevalence of knock-offs these days I'm a bit concerned Here's a pic of the headstock

    ESP Takamiy...thoughts?

    Ever since I've been playing more clean i've been underwhelmed with a standard hum bucker in the bridge, and one of my ESPs in particular excels; it's a 27 fretted with a slanted neck stacked SD pup (no idea which) but when I engage the push-pull in the neck position it sounds glorious (clean)...

    Torpedo Live DI and Re-amping

    Hi Two Notes team! After a failed experimentation w/ the C.A.B. a few years ago I decided to buy a Live and give it another shot since I'd like to get into recording again. One thing I'd like to do this time around is record a DI signal which I can later re-amp so I don't have to re-record...

    Bernie Rico Jr.

    Any news about him? I haven't heard anything after his breakdown except that he may be working with some new company that's associated to gear hounds... I'm curious if any of the SSO guys that were ripped off by him ever got any resolution or actually escalated it to a lawsuit.

    Tremol-no Question

    I recently got my hands on my first tremol-no and thus far I'm pretty happy with it. I'm having a small problem with it though, and not sure if it's an installation problem or a hardware issue: When I bend a note, I hear a "knock" coming from the i opened up the back to see...

    Nut Slots

    I've moved to a smaller gauge of strings and the nut slots seem to be cut too deep for the new gauge. Not sure what material the nut is made from, but it's seems to be a type of plastic or carbon fibre? How do I go about repairing the deep slots? I saw a youtube video where they mixed making...

    Unblocking a floyd rose

    I had my luthier block a floyd rose for me previously and I now want to unblock it and install a tremolo-no (thanks mel!!) instead. What he did was "half" block it by gluing a small 2x2 cm block of wood to the end of the cavity closet to the claw (so now it only dips and can't be raised). I...

    When you play... do you improvise? Teachers usually try to suggest either 1) learn the scale "equation" and apply that to any relevant root note 2) Memorize the scale all over the neck and play from the applicable notes 3) Just memorize these 5 boxes in the scale and key you use the most and stick to...

    Mouradian Guitar Co

    Just wanted to give you guys a heads up about Jim Mouradian. Extremely good luthier, knows his stuff and as honest as they get. I have no affiliation to Jim, but heard good reviews about his work online and decided to give him a shot, and was blown away. He is around Boston, but even if you are...

    Disapointed at ESP

    My best friend purchased a custom ordered ESP a year ago and is the second owner of the guitar. He babied that guitar like you wouldn't believe, and it recently developed a warped neck. He contacted ESP and was basically told tough shit, you're not the original owner there's nothing we can do...

    Suhr Sales + maple neck/board maintenance

    Was just browsing TGP and came across a Suhr thread, and John commented that the modern series comprises the majority of their sales. That came as a shock to me! I personally love and prefer the modern shape, but would have guessed that the standard style guitars would outnumber the moderns in...
