    I just went to the guitar show in Chicago and ran into a custom builder that goes by abyss guitars. His custom work was just stunning!!! His inlay skills are incredible. He's expensive I think? As I dont know how much custom guitars normally go for his start at $5500 and go to about $15000. If...

    I've owned dozens of Ibanez guitars over the years and this is my last and favorite. Thought I'd post it here first before hitting the broader world with it. From the best I understand, this was part of a limited run in '99 that ended up in Guitar Centers in Texas (hence the nickname: "Texas...

    There was a thread on here a little while back about Epiphone Lp's. The general feeling is that if you can afford a Gibson then that's probably best as you'll have to try out a good few Epi's before you get a keeper and even then you'll need to do a few mods to it. My feeling is that I've also...

    Hello. I have always loved the Ibanez S3040PL, but as many of you know, it is extremely rare. So, I went to RAN guitars custom order page (www.ranguitars.com) and made a guitar. It is extremely similar to the S3040, except it is neck thru, 24 frets, features red LEDs, and has an original floyd...

What a sweet axe !!! 8) I brought home a Fender G-Dec 30...

    I've been building guitars as a hobby for about 2 or 3 years. This is my latest re-creation of an Ernie Ball Music Man EVH style guitar. I haven't stained it yet, so use your imagination because this will be a very dark blue. Swamp ash body with 1/8" figured maple top. The pickups are a Tone...

    I am curious to know if an rg7321 neck would fit and universe body, mostly cause I could get ahold of one for cheap (probly cheaper than just buying a neck) and just order a universe body and take it from there with adding the appropriate hardware.

    Who here owns a ukulele, of any sort? Today as I was in town I wandered into Hobgoblin (a folk instrument store in Leeds), to enquire as to whether they had the appropriate tuning pegs for my crappy old ukulele (which is missing 2 pegs, and only has 1 string, and terrible intonation), they did...

    I bought a cheap RG350 just to test a couple of things on it. Now I wanted to test to modify it to a "chromeboy" ;) I'm just in the beginning of the progress now, but here is a couple of pictures of what I have done so far, I think it can be pretty cool when it's done :) There is alot of work...
