    Hello everyone. I first want to say, wow! I think I may have found the right place to look for advice concerning my Jem and my tough decision.

  2. Pickups & wiring
    so i have an air norton and air zone coming my way, planning on installing in a guitar with the petrucci wiring (neck/bridge n neck split/bridge). The air zone will split to the slug coil and the air norton will split to the screw coil to maintain humbucking, but I know its possible to open up...

    Hi, just looking for some advice. Anyone know the best way to seek out a specific model, now discontinued? I've been trawling through ebay, gumtree (British craigslist), facebook groups, and finding nothing. Is this the only method available to me, continually searching until one day it may pop...

    Hi Fellows! I am looking for good Ibanez on budget--about $500.00 I really like RG styles. Cant not afford Jem style yet. I play mostly classic rock like Led Zep, Sabbath, and that sort. I appreciate advices.

    So it is now that time... Time to purchase my very first tube amp. I'm finally gigging as a musician so it's time to upgrade from my crappy Line 6 spider IV 75 watt combo to something decent. I'm on the market for a decent tube amp that is very versatile; I play a lot of music styles with...

    So I have 2 S Series Guitars with HSH configurations. I am planning on putting noiseless strat pups in the mid positions. Heres why; I want the middle positions to be noiseless, but I want stacked buckers so I can wire the switches to coil tap both the middle and the neck/bridge when in position...
  10. Pickups & wiring
    Hi, fellow guitarists! First of all: I've done a lil' bit of searching and none of the threads could be able to help me in searching my own pickup setup (yeah, guess why). So, there's my good old RG1570 with stock pickups. With the exception of V7 wich gained a lot in tone after doing the...

    Hey Left players, I know Ibanez has pretty limited range of left handed guitars. Was wondering what other lefty's wanting a really nice Ibby do to get one. Custom order? Build your own? Any good lefty shops I should look into? I'm very interested in a RG series Fixed Bridge or Hard Tail...
  12. Pickups & wiring
    I've been thinking about finally switching out the stock pups on my RG1421F for something different. I have an SZ520 loaded with a ZW 81/85 set and absolutely love them but these obviously will not work on a 5-way selector. I've never really looked into DiMarzios much but apparently these are...

    So my 4y/o daughter keeps asking me when I'm going to get her a guitar (a pink one) so she can play too... I know she's only 4 and it's likely that she'll be excited for about 15min and then never play again but even the slightest chance that she'd pick it up that young is worth the price of a...
  15. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    I've got GAS, and I've decided only a JEM will satsify it this time. I know I want a model with the vanishing pyramid inlays. What I don't know is what models came with it, and what price ranges I'd be looking at to get one. A well played guitar with finish damage doesn't bother me, nor does a...

    Hi, Wondering whether anyone on this site can assist me in understanding whether a Maxxas MX5 would have appreciated in value over the last 15 years and how much it might be worth today? Would greatly appreciate any advice or guidance. Thanks in advance.
