    That's a really good question! When i got the guitar in 2008-9 it had passive Seymour Duncans. TB-4/JB in the bridge and SH1R/Cool Rails in the neck, and they worked really well. I stupidly sold the guitar in 2014 but then bought it back from the same guy cheaper in 2018, and soon thereafter i made the vinyl stickers, and then why the hell not mod it thoroughly. I got an EMG-HZ H4 and H4A set for 30€ from some guy, so I stuck one of them in it and sold the originals to fund some other stuff. I thought it would look silly to mix pickup brands. I have plans to get a proper H2 or ALX for it, and when I'm at it I'll get an S2 for the neck. Just haven't come across a good deal yet :)
    I have the ESP MM-04, that I bought from Musamaailma a few pages back, in the guitar. It really does deliver the goods.
    It looks a bit stupid with the empty cavity, i realise, but I just can't be bothered worrying about all the things.

    Check out the black guitar next to the amp. It has a Metal Zone stuck to it. It was on there really fucking good. I put it on there with nano gel tape, and I bent the back lid on the pedal trying to pry it off again. It was worth it for the lulz. Pedal is my avatar!

    You have a Metal Zone stuck in your guitar? :rofl: I'm speechless :D Never thought such a thing was possible. Thanks for posting that, it's both amazing and absolutely hilarious :D

    REAL COOL, great to see and hear i got to convice you :) i own this amp aswell and im really happy with it,

    Alexi used the 1960BV (vintage 30 speakers) he might have used the BX a few times, but meanly he had the 1960B cab in his 2000's and after that when i got more into the Marshall cabs it went to the BV cab

    i got an 1960B cab ( G12T-75 celestions) and a cheaper Harley Benton (which is thomann house cabinet) that got the (Vintage 30's)

    im kinda trying to get it mic'd up with a Shure SM57 microphone so i can do some proper recordings

    Glad I could be of service :-D
    I do stupid shit like this all the time, follow me for more recipes for disaster!
    I eventually did get the pedal off the guitar but in the process i bent the pedals rear lid and scratched up the guitar. Doesn't matter when I had fun.

    Yeah i think the Audix commercial was from around 2012, with the 1960BX.
    I have plans to swap my Palmer 212 for a 1936V. I can't go 412 because of space/weight/loudness.

    I don't have any mics yet, but i have my Nux Solid Studio poweramp/cab IR in the serial loop of the amp, and that goes into my interface. I can play and record in complete silence, or i can let it rip, which is super nice. Optimally I'd have a loadbox, so I'd have the poweramp get into the tone aswell but that will come later.
    If i can play a bodom Riff without embarrassing myself, I'll post it on here.

    those scratches can be buffed out, bit of waterproof sandpaper (1500korel) and then polishpaste, or walk into a car repair shop ;) they will do it in an 30 min

    Thanks man, but this guitar is going to get modded, and the paints gonna come off at some point. I got it basically for free. Story time! Last year I bought an Epiphone flying V that came with a Peavey Bandit for 120€, and then i sold the Epi for 250€, and then i traded the Bandit for a Gretsch G2215-P90, and that i traded for the LTD M-202. So I basically got my investment + 130€ and a free guitar from the whole thing.

    I'm going to scallop the upper frets, fill in the neck PU, paint it and then upgrade electronics and hardware. Just waiting for good deals on the market.

    Does anyone know what amps/cabs/preamps/fxs etc Roope and Alexi use in this video? Their tones sound amazing together and I really wanna reproduce them.

    It's just a guess, but on alot of appearances Alexi just used whatever was available and they just brought a guitar. Since this from Guitar World, I'm quite sure it's probably just whatever Marshall or Peavey they have there. MM-04's can make almost any high-ish gain amp sound good.
