[Gear] NGD Epiphone Lee Malia Explorer

Took a few shots of my new Epiphone Lee Malia Explorer that I received today and snuck a little bit of it's older brother the Gibson Brendon Small Thunderhorse in there.

I don't know much about Lee Malia but I saw this guitar on L&M's website a few months ago. I loved the fretboard pattern, and gold hardware with the walnut finish on an Explorer body so I had to pre-order it. It wasn't supposed to arrive until October so I was pleasantly surprised when I got an email this past Friday saying it had shipped. Unfortunately, that very same week I had made the vow to stop playing guitar for a while as I'd recently injured my shoulder and playing was doing no favors in allowing it to heal right now 🙁

I, of course couldn't resist playing this beauty at least a little bit today and will probably sneak in a few more short sessions in the coming days but it still kills me that I can't give it a proper go for awhile. I'm pretty impressed with it's setup out of the box. Love the sound of the P94 and 84-T for the bit that I've gotten to play them. But the stand out thing for me is the thicker C-shape neck. It's perfect for my big hands and it's my first electric that isn't some slim C or D shape.

Looking for a good solo piece for my HS Orchestra concert.

I play a 5 string fretless and am going to be performing a solo on it for my HS orchestra concert. Any good recommendations for a solo piece? Thanks!

Spector Legend – is there only one tier of this bass, and is it a good bass? I’ve seen good quality used ones for like 60% less than the new ones, so I’m wondering if it’s the same bass.

Playing bass as a jazz instrument?

I'm got some musical experience, I've played piano and violin but never really anything outside of classical. Now I'm looking into jazz, and I want to try something new. I posted on the guitar sub but it seems like bass is better for jazz in general, or at least more prevalent. Should I still buy the recommended beginner basses in the wiki? Because it seems like a large majority of bass players mostly play funk/pop/rock. I'm not really interested in anything other than jazz for the time being, but I'll probably play something else once in a while. I'm thinking of just buying a real book and looking up chords I don't know to begin with. Is bass what I'm looking for and if so, what should I buy as a beginner.

Permanent down tuning

So recently I've acquired a new Fender Squire Pbass and I love the tone and the sound that comes off it. I also have a Cort Action bass that I've had for a while and that I really love.

I play a lot of metal and hard rock and I am thinking about down tuning one of the 2 guitars to a CGCF tuning and keeping one at regular tuning. However I am not quite sure which of the 2 guitars I should tune down. The Cort with the jazz neck and PJ pickups or the Pbass?

Thanks for any advice!

Anyone know the "Torque" amp?

I had a 35w that broke because of its age (1980s). If you have one, share your thoughts!
