    Hi, I'm looking to buy a jem, I've played a few and really like them. I am looking for a guitar that can do everything (Impossible I know) but when it comes to guitars this price range, I think to myself, trem or no trem, humbuckers or single coils because it's alot of money to spend on a guitar...

    Well I've finally decided to refinish my sorely beaten up RG520. I've decided to ditch the quilted top and go with a flame maple veneer. I've read every article I can find on the refinish; I feel pretty confident. The only thing holding me back is the color. I want to go for this...

    Hi! I have a Takamine G330 acoustic guitar. I think it SHOULD be a pretty good guitar. It sounds great anyway. The problem is that its really and I mean REALLY tough to play. I have a hard time finishing a song of only open chords and my hand gets very tired. The action is very high. Can anyone...

    Just saw him perform this evening...stunning! One man and an acoustic guitar, and I was mesmerized for 3 hours. I realize fingerpicking acoustic players are not the craze around here, but this guy is phenomenal...and a great entertainer. Plenty of speedy playing, lots of taste, half the time...

    Hi guys, Just thought I'd share this song of mine. This one came from the heart, and well, I'm kinda happy with it. I recorded this with my new Seagull Acoustic guitar, and an RG421 with EVO's (strings on the 421 really needed to be changed, but ah well), on my new machine that I only just...

    Hi to everyone!! Have someone customized a Jem with a Double Edge tremolo? Since Ibanez don't release a Piezo Jem, I think we can try to built one!!! I'm thinking to buy an RG1620 and to take it's Double Edge Pro bridge to put it in a Jem7vSBL. Sure, I will put the Edge Pro in the Rg and I'll...

    So... I'm drinking some water while playing my acoustic. some of it spills onto the guitar, and some in the sound hole. Thankfully it was only a few drops, but I now have the question; what should be done if more than a few drops of water gets into the body of an acoustic guitar? anyone have...

    can i use with (almost) my PODxt, any power amp or has it to be designed for guitar? i've noticed that you can get like 300 watts under 400$! All the tone 'thingies' are on the POD, so the power amp would give only volume. Is this right?
