I'm just a caveman. Your modern guitar tech frightens and confuses me.

The electric guitar switch in my brain recently flipped itself back to 'On' after 18 years of hibernation, and I'm feeling like Rip Van Winkle. Where and how do the cool kids learn how to shred these days? [more inside]

I'm looking for a fake cheap guitar from ten years ago

About ten years ago I thought about buying an electric guitar. I remember seeing one I liked the look of, and now I can't find it. I doubt it is the guitar for me, but it is bugging me that I can't find it again. It looked a lot like this, but sloppier and cheaper. [more inside]

The Admiral Haddock Experience

Best electric guitar resources?

What are some of the best resources on the electric guitar? Any medium is welcome: books, videos, articles, etc. Money is not an issue; if there's a really good reference that costs thousands of dollars, I'd like to know about it. Collectively, I'd like these resources to cover everything a professional electric guitarist would need to know, from technique (basic and advanced) to related tech (amps, effects units, etc.) to guitar maintenance. Thank you!

Does Line6 have looper effects pedal software?

I have an old Line6 GuitarPort with Gearbox 3.5 on a Windows laptop. Does anyone know if there is a Line6 plugin or other software available (from Line6 or elsewhere) that I can download to my laptop that will simulate a looper pedal (or a phrase looper as defined by wikipedia ). I'm trying to record the rhythm for a song I like, have it loop and then freestyle the solo on my guitar, all through my computer.

Why are electric guitar pickups designed the way they are?

Why are electric guitar pickups designed the way they are? Wouldn't it be a lot more effective to run a weak current through the strings and have single coil pickups without magnets? The wiring would be slightly more complicated, but I'd think the increased signal to noise ratio would justify this. I'm assume I'm missing some big drawback or inviability though.

Sharp, twangy-sounding Telecaster pickups?

I just bought my first electric guitar (Fender Telecaster Mexican) and I absolutely love it. Ever the gearhead, I really want to upgrade the pickups to get a better, tailored to me sound. I've searched around to find some kind of guide, but I have come up empty. I'm looking for a really clean, sharp and twangy sound with less extra noisy buzz than I am getting now. Any suggestions/resources?
