    I'm guessing you bought it used and the seller put the greenbacks in?

    They should have kept the V30's!

    hahah, I'm hoping to make it less buzzy and more badass. :kickass:

    It came from the factory like that, this sshit is mint as fuck. He claims to have a friend there that hooked up at the factory.

    THis dude is in this local guitar heros band, Tony Smutherman (he had a betcha can't play this in last months guitar world or the month before) so he's legit.

    V30's + gp1k = dickshit

    He had this mad pedal board with high end shit, a bunch of LP customs, wolfgangs, petruccis, PRS, a bunch of old shit.

    Mark IV + cab, tiny terror, three MP-1's, a bunch of cabs, and he lives like 5 mins away.

    He would traded the mark IV cab too haha He says I can come back and get something else if I don't dig the legacy

    hey guys do you guys generally use alternate picking to play three notes per string scales or economy picking?
    Cause i've only used economy picking and now i'm having trouble with alternate.
    Any helpful advice to impove my alternate?

    Wow, the dude has some interesting stuff, and good for you if you can try and then swap if you don't like it :lol:

    Looking good! I support Corny, hurry up! :kickass:

    :lol::lol::lol:

    Yep, I know that. Drums recorded in 2007, bass and vocals in 2008, guitars started in 2009 and I still have some rythm tracks to lay down and then all the solos, mix and master. Yep, recording while studying and with tight budget sucks balls.

    It's pretty sweet no doubt.

    I'll probably kept as the mark Iv cab probably isn't that much better and has v30's.

    I need to fucking get started on my JE1000 clone. Fuckkkkk me

    Practice scales at slow speed using consistant alternate picking and really focus on the parts where you usually go down-down or up-up. It might be a bit tricky at first but after a while you'll get it right naturally. A good thing to practice is the natural minor three-note-per-string patterns. Good luck!

    alternate picking. and it's really important that you get it down asap. for some really good exercises, see PG's Intense Rock (I forget if it's part 1 or 2). he'll get you started in the right direction.

    I didn't realize that the LTD Roope model has an unfinished neck.

    ESP failed to mention that in their specs.

    Don't forget that it's not like alternate picking = good, economy picking = bad.

    Both approaches sound different: While AP gives you a more aggressive sound and seperates the notes more from each other, EP gives you a more flowing sound because of the little sweeps.

    Lolz, I don't think his tone ever was something special...just a very trebley one.(That's not what i used to think) I much more prefer the sleek/smoother tone that you could imagine getting with a ENGL.

    If you have extremely good timing and rythimc sense, you can make economy picking sound pretty aggresive and "non-sweepy". What most people have problem with is that they often rush when there are two successive notes with a sweep.

    Frank Gambale is the ultimate master of economy picking, check him out!
