Hi, I´m Kjetil from Stavanger (Norway) born in 77. I just recently found GMC at GuitarWorlds website and signed up right away;)

I´ve been playing guitar since the summer of 2006..
Ok.. I played guitar for about 1 year when I was 14, but I only played powercords in a punkband till my skateboard broke..
Then I sold my guitar to buy a new skateboard, and started just singing in the band insted.
I´ve also played drums and done vocals for many years in diffrent bands.

But when GUITAR HERO came out for playstation in europe spring 06, I played it all day for about 3 months. Then I tought to myself. If I can spend so much time on a fake guitar, I might just as well spend it on a real guitar!! and that is why I´m here.... to finally learn how to shred;)

I still skateboard and I work out alot, but GUITAR is my main thing now.

I´ve made some songs and are saving up for drums so I can record the drumtracks, cause I hate using drumprograms.

My guitar gear:
- RANDALL V2 amp
- BOSS GT8 effectboard
- IBANEZ XPT700 (xiphos) red camelon with activator pickups
- DEAN DIME RAZORBACK two2one with Dimarzio X2N pickup in birdge & Humbucker from hell in neck
- LTD ec50 with Dimarzio X2N pickup in birdge & Humbucker from hell in neck.

Dimarzio X2N pickup is in my ears the nr1 metal pickup;)

Stay Metal!!

ThanX biggrin.gif
If your thinking on buying on keep in mind: The vibsystem on the china versions is crap (there is no way the guitar will stay in tune) so I had to replace it with a original floyd rose, and now it works perfect:)

"Fact is, nothing in the world bores me more than gear...If I played thru your rig, I would still sound like me. Van Halen would sound like Van Halen. Brian May...etc. Very early in my career I decided to focus on creating music and not being a guitar tech. Being a good guitar tech is a very different and extremely difficult job, so why not leave it to a pro?"

Thanks:)
Yeah, it´s a great guitar but, the Ibanez is better to play (got faster neck) wink.gif
But then agian, the razorback got better vibsystem and pickups after I replaced them with new ones.

So I LOVE em both biggrin.gif

The Ltd-ec50 (that I repainted to make it look fuckt up) I got for free cause there was a minor crack on the Razorback.
