    yesterday i was looking at my bc rich and i found that there were more pores on the fretboard than before? is this bad ? or is it something natural cause i dont remember seeing it b4 it was pretty smooth, same with my ibanez strange, could it be due to humidity or temperature ?

  4. Off-topic / Miscellaneous
    Does anyone know where to get a chrome finished strap like the one I saw Satriani playing? Not a DiMarzio with the clip-locks (don't like clip-locks)! I think I saw it in the Little Wing performance on U Tube, G3 tour with Malmsteen and Vai.

    It's ACRYLIC heh heh. That leaves me with a question tho, what are the tonal characteristics of acrylic? I mean, it strays so far from wood its insane! makes me wanna build a guitar outta some new unwilling material.. (engine block?) lol

I really fancy having a go at making one myself and thought...

    We are not that far away from NAMM and I find interesting that the 20th had a ton of anticipation, and even the idea of 50K gots everybodys attention yet I havent seen all that buzz about the almost sure 100th HAM models that will most likely be released next year. So, what is everybodys bet...

    Now that all is said and done what's the verdict? I'll base it off of looks, playability, overall design.
  12. All Other Guitars (including Prestige)
    Anyone had any experience? I'm tempted by one of those Wesley 5-string basses on ****, if it's still only going for a tiny price nearing the end of the auction?

    Sorry if this has already been posted, but I just scanned this out of the new Guitar One issue. It can also be seen in the latest Guitar World issue.

    A lighter swirl than the pic in Vai.com?
  15. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    Not sure if there is/was a thread like this, but I figure it couldn't hurt to have a wish list. I would've liked something along the lines of an Evo "Relic". Everything that makes Evo what it is (Aside from the large crack in the body), for any and all to have. Probably would've been a lot...

    Just curious to see what the outcome would be. :) www.vai.com Kind regards, Myst

    On the eve of the JEM20th announcement, it has become necessary to start a single, organized, contained thread where Ibanez customers of past and present can convey their dissatisfaction of the JEM/UV line to Steve Vai (and indirectly to Ibanez). Some of you are misguided in that you think...
  18. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    Ok I have missed everything. Where exactly are the pictures of the new Jem?
  19. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    I am thinking of getting one of these 20th just as an investment piece and am wondering if that makes sense. I am wondering if you can sell these and if there is as big of a market for it as there was for the 10th? I somehow believe it appeals ONLY to the collector not the player the target...
  20. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    Hi everybody, I know it's far away, but I was just wondering what all of you were hoping for when it comes to the 20th anniversary JS model, which will probably be released next year. Personally, I wouldn't be surprised if Ibanez released a golden JS...
