Schecter’s BRUTAL Triple Coil Pickup!

Thumb 2

Schecter’s new Sunset 6 Triad features a wild triple coil pickup! And this thing sounds as powerful as it looks. The best part is, the rest of the guitar is awesome as well. Extra jumbo stainless steel frets, locking tuners, a 5 piece maple and rosewood neck, ebony fretboard, and a body shape built for speed all come together to make this guitar flat out awesome.

Mythbusting Cheap Guitars!

Thumb 2

Whenever I review an affordable guitar, I get in the comments section about how the guitar is “not real wood”. I’m tired of this cheap guitar myth and today I’m going to disprove this. Let’s sacrifice two affordable, but unusable guitars and see what they’re really made of. Particle board? MDF? Plywood? What’s the truth?


My Marshall DLS20 Amp is Broken! But I still LOVE IT!


My Marshall DSL20HR is an awesome sounding amp… with problems. The earlier versions of these Dual Super Lead re-issue amps had widespread problems with the effects loop and emulated output, and I got unlucky with mine. This amp features an ultra gain channel and classic gain, and at 20 watts all tube, you can get a great sound at a lower volume.

AIO, or All In One Guitars, has become one of my favorite guitar brands in recent years. This is the source of Wolf guitars and now the AIO brand of guitars. Here is my shop tour video and interview with Jin, the owner. He talks about how the guitar business started and we see the guys at the shop working on their guitars up close, doing nut adjustments, fret leveling, crowning, fret ends, and more.

And it’s not even expensive! Let’s check this out.

NU-X Wireless thumb 1

I’ve checked out amps from NU-X in the past, but never tried one of their stand-alone guitar wireless systems. This one is super compact and solves the limited battery life issue with a super cool charging case! I got zero interference during my testing for nothing but crystal clear sound. Of course I’m using my Harley Benton Guitar MAX Fusion signature guitar for the test!
