Worrying development re: my RG570's Edge trem

The side bit on the treble side which extends slightly beyond where the knife edge is (which is about 7mm long) has snapped off. There seems to be a little insert around halfway down the bit in...

Odd time signatures can seriously mess with your head when you first come across them, but the only reason for that is that it's unusual and your ear perceives it as such. If you get used to it by...

It's got a cool pickguard (I kinda like the orange pot - gives it a bit of contrast) but I still hate that half-vine neck and I don't like TRS bridges.

At the end of the day, if you like it,...

A few Sustainiac questions

Hi; I'm interested in what Steve's done with FLO and I'd quite fancy a sustainer in my geetar. Few questions:

1) Given the sustainer itself is single-coil sized, what pickup would you put next to...

After a year I was playing Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd stuff. Easy stuff, compared to what you're trying to do.

I really do think you're expecting too much of yourself. The scariest guitarists...

Paul Gilbert's tapping intro to Green-Tinted Sixties Mind is another great introduction to tapping - fairly easy, but sounds incredible. It also includes a couple of alternative tapping techniques,...

Everyone has cojoined ring and little fingers, because those two fingers share a tendon whereas the index and middle fingers have a tendon each. This means that they will move together much of the...

Will an Edge Pro fit the Edge (not Lo-Pro) mounts...

...and is it worth changing?

The guitar in question is a 1990 RG570. The trem is fine on it, but I'm doing it up at present (new electronics, pickups, fret dress or refret, etc) and I was...

Any JEM custom builders on this forum?

I've copied this from one of my other posts (on the Is a Jem Worth It? thread) so that it stays on topic and I get answers to my question.

I want a JEM777LNG so badly it ain't true, but my chances...

So am I - and I agree. A Jem shouldn't cost any more than 1000.

LPs are definitely overpriced for what you get, despite the fact that the 2002 model is much better than the previous ones.

I...

They're awesome guitars. But you could be right - a high-end RG is definitely better VFM. You're definitely paying for the Vai connection, but that's generally true of signature guitars. What's...

Powersound pickups are used by Ibanez on their lower-end Korean RGs, among other guitars. They'd compare to Duncan Designed pickups, I'd say.

The aren't bad for what they are - cheap Korean...

Eek! RG neck problem - help!

To be honest it's not that huge a problem, but it's worrying nonetheless. I got a secondhand RG lately, and I got a great deal on it (like free) so I ain't complaining. The problem is, my friend...

I can't believe that nobody's mentioned Vai's 'Ladies Nite in Buffalo' solo from his DLR period yet! Sounds great, and is a great source of 'cut out and keep' licks.

I'll second anything by Pink...

My fingers aren't particularly long, but I'm also double jointed, particularly in my left hand pinky. This means it has a tendency to make 'all or nothing' movements where I have little control over...

I've always played with my hand resting somewhere, but with me it's the side of my hand resting on the strings or on the trem (can't do that with a Floyd - tuning goes all over the place). I think...

Hand on Heart is a nice one - beautiful melody and not too tough for the most part, apart from that fairly insane tapping lick in the solo.

Otherwise I'd say Crying Machine. Again, nice melody...

Trem guards on Edge, ala early JEM777 models

Anyone got a 777 with one of these doozies? I'm planning to have one custom made as my playing style means I lean on the bridge quite a lot (that's what you get for learning on a hardtail) and it...
