Metal = Metallica

Heavy Metal = Meshugga

I was going to make the Metallica reference but I didn't want to offend anyone by saying it's not 'heavy metal' ;)

Heavy Metal now refers to grindcore, metalcore, nu metal and death metal... thash metal has a lot more in common with these genres, so Metallica and Slayer are still "Heavy Metal".

Power metal, hardcore, alternative metal, classic metal and glam metal are all forms of "metal". Think Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Ratt, King Diamond, Motorhead and Black Sabbath..
Set it where you want... and WAIL!!!!

The PAF Joe (DP213) is not listed in the main post. It's referred to in the text about colour, but the long list does not include it.

A couple of weeks ago I saw this error when trying to view the output chart:

Could not connect to the database:
no such database

It's still like that today. Makes viewing the output chart difficult ;)

Thanks for pointing it out, it's been fixed.

Also, after having learned a bit about power engineering, measuring pickup output makes so much more sense... and is much more confusing mathematically than you'd imagine.

Any progress on this one?

Or is it that was fixed and went down again?

and non-stagger the polepieces in pickups that would otherwise have staggered polepieces for an upcharge of $45.


Actual list is $10 for that option, street price lower.  I do this all the time.

Quick question! If I disconnect the tone from a liquifire/crunch lab would that affect the tone? I'm thinking of changing the pickups on my charvel soloist from EMG to the JP set but this guitar only has a volume control and no tone.

It will slightly. You notice a bit more high end and output. Some even think it sounds more "open"
