    Seems I've mind blanked again on new songs to learn so suggestions welcome. Kind of a beginner. Got down some Metallica and Maiden(Fear Of The Dark, The Trooper) down as well as Hammer Smashed Face.

    So anything that's a bit of a challenge and not entirely chugging one note and a few power chords :)

    ...and Justice for All is always great fun. Not too technically demanding but a good memory test coz it goes for so long and it feels epic to play along with.

    Nice, never heard one but I heard they're really good. Anyone seen the Ibo PGM100 reissues at their locals? I saw an Australian price online for one at $5500...sounds a little ridiculous even if it is limited. The 20th anniversary were limited and they were still sub $2k.

    Speaking of pedals, has anyone built any of the BYOC pedals? The Overdrive2 sounds like it might a be a cool addition.

    Such a crazy price for a RG550 with painted F-holes :lol:.

    It's difficult enough to buy RG's new anyway considering the deals you get second hand on oldies.

    Agreed, I love RGs but some of them are crazy over-priced.

    My Hardwire metal distortion is nuts btw, I've never heard so much bass from a distortion pedal. I've tried getting fat tones before with my Zoom but when I crank up the bass on the Zoom eq my distortion got flabby and made some awful farty noises when I went chugga chugga. For a while there I was starting to worry that the vintage voicing on my TT was to blame and I'd never get a tight metal tone but this pedal pumps out more bass than I'll ever need and my TT never flabs out. Heaps of different tones available using the tight/loose switch and tweaking the eqs too. Really quiet pedal too. It's quieter than my Satchurator is and has more gain at the same time. Awesome pedal, I freakin love it.

    edit - it's crazy loud too. To get my clean/dist at the same level with my Satchurator I have the Satchurator volume at about the 3 oclock, with my Hardwire I have the pedal volume at about 9 oclock. Loads of volume boost on tap.

    Why would you get a new Ibanez when you could get an older one for less that has a better trem on it anyway?

    edge/lo-pro edge are simply brilliant.

    funnily enough i think i prefer the original edge over the lo-pro..

    I dunno man, I got the lo-pro Edge on my Prestige but for my style of playing I freaking LOVE my ZR trem. It keeps better pitch for double-stop/unison bends, I can be way more physical with palm muting before it pitches up and changing strings is easier. The only thing I miss from my lo-pro edge is getting flutter effects really easy.
