Hell Guitar No 2

After spending a few more days getting to know this guitar, I am really digging it. I had a bit of buzz on the low E string and the A string, so I raised the action. This didn't fix it, so I look at the neck. Do you know how to check the neck if it is straight? You hold it up and look along the neck, and it's easy to see if it's straight or not. I saw the truss rod had been tightened just a little bit too much, so I loosened it and problem gone. No buzzing anymore.

I wanted to get some tones recorded with this guitar other than what I have done on video so far, so I sat down and experimented a bit with my Mack Heatseeker and also with Line Pod Farm 2 (software). I wanted to see how the guitar would sound with 2 entirely different guitar tones, as well as recording methods.

Below you have 2 short clips, just to demonstrate what it sounds like. The first is with the Heatseeker, the 2nd is with Pod Farm 2.

Here is a short clip where I miced my Mack Heatseeker - no pedals used, just a bit of reverb added in Logic.

The second clip is a short high gain clip I recorded last night with this guitar and the loops in Logic for bass and drums. I used Pod Farm 2 for the guitar tones - the lead guitar is a variac'd Plexi with a Rat pedal.

What do you think?

For more information, see Hell Guitars and Mack amps and for Pod Farm 2, Pod Farm 2 software.

You can also get the first version of Pod Farm from Amazon.
