    Unfortunately, we didn't get an official video of the jam. But there were a lot of camera phones pointed toward the stage that night. So maybe someone will show up with some footage.

    Bit late to the party, but I had an awesome day at the factory. Couldn't stay for the jam unfortunately, exact opposite of the last UGD. Couldn't have come at a more perfect time, either - getting off the active kick and now have literally nothing but Duncans in any of my electrics.

    All at UGD - picked up a chrome-covered Demon that went into the neck of my Tele, a PGb that's in the neck of my Stinnett, wound an Alt5 w/A5 mag for the bridge of the Stinnett, and have been absolutely dumbfounded by how good the A2P in the bridge of my Schecter sounds. Was expecting lower output, not so aggressive, clear under low gain but muddy/loose under high gain but that's just not the case at all. The thing has a ton of balls and really rewards heavy handed playing, but also retains clarity at high gain settings and just has a general "sweetness" to it that I love.

    Believe me when I say that some of the most amazing music in history was made on equipment that's not as good as what you own right now.

    Nice pics wish I could have been there. Although, I didn't recognize anyone. For some reason I was expecting to see Gene Simmons, a guy in a green mankini, chewbacca with a guitar, redneck jason voorhees, or at least the the huge breasted girl who is changes into another girl each and every day. I think it should be mandatory to show up looking like your avatar.
