    Pickups are Dimarzios so unless you're after a specific sound from them they shouldn't need replacing. Personally I think the boutique pickup scene is mostly cork sniffing. It's amazing what a difference adjusting pickup and pole piece height and some EQ can make.

    As for taking the neck off you should be fine however if you're doing it regularly you should probably consider having threaded inserts put in so the screws are going into steel threads as opposed to wood.

    Shouldn't affect the sound at all. If you decide to clean them make sure you cover the coils with something and avoid steel wool. You don't want that stuff getting into the pickups.

    Can't help you with a Paradigm review but I hope you're buying your strings online and not paying $15+ a pack for regular sets.

    I just bought some new strings for my acoustic guitar and it's the first time I've tried to replace them myself. The last time I went to a shop and had them do it. My low E bridge pin keeps popping out and I've been trying it for 30 minutes or so. Any tips or is there a possibility that my bridge plate is messed up? My local shop has a price of $225 to replace the bridge plate but my guitar was only $200 so that would not be an option for me.

    Seriously bummed out about this.

    Probably a dumb question, but have you tried tapping it in harder? Some of my pins slip, I just have to give them a good pound and they'll sit.

    Yea I probably wasn't doing it exactly right but I took it to a shop and they fixed it for $5. I did learn the basics of restringing though and feel confident about all of it except that part.

    Mine is just a fender acoustic starter guiter; I played a taylor that was listed for $549 and it was amazing. The strings were so soft and the action was so low it felt like an electric. My strings (.11) feel hard and high in comparison.

    Need advice.

    I'm debating if I should forever give up guitar. I have never had a great joy in playing it - probably not a good sign. Even "fun" things on guitar don't do much for me.

    I think I liked the idea of playing guitar more than actually playing guitar. I am not a good player, but I know some theory and have some dexterity. Maybe I havn't crossed the threshold where things click.

    When I play drums I go into a trance and it feels more natural to me. Maybe committing 100% to drums makes more sense. I just worry that I'll keep investing time/money into a hobby I never really enjoyed.

    If there is no real reason you HAVE to play guitar and you don't enjoy it then put more of your efforts into drumming. Doesn't sound like you have a real reason to continue with guitar or sounds like you don't even want to continue. No reason to spend more time and money on something you don't even enjoy doing especially if its just a hobby.

    That's what I wanted to confirm. You guys seem so joyed to play and talk guitar, I don't have that. I figure this is a big component if you want to pursue a hobby. I know people say practicing is not fun, but even screwing around doesn't do much for me whereas with you guys seem to be able to play guitar for hours on end.

    Try different instruments. I played 10+ before coming to find my zone with the guitar. You don't need to be good at any of them either, you'll just find the one that feels right

    I think Allan Holdsworth was a big influence for him developing that approach but he made it his own.

    He was at his peak in the 80s wearing that marching band jacket. And that sound. A couple of notes clean or with overdrive and you knew it was him. Obviously these days the internet and modeling gear makes it easy to dial in great sounds but no one else sounded like him back then.

    I never noticed that before, but it makes sense now looking at the chord section in Allans instructional vid. They both have those certain notes that 'ping' out and announce themselves more than the other ones in their chords.

    6:35 just kills me inside
