Just wondering if there are any Carvin fans in here? I think they make some of the best quality guitars and especially necks around. To this day my Bolt Plus guitar has the best playing/feeling neck i`ve ever seen. Any love for Carvin?
What do you guys think of having a blade pickup in the middle position of an Rg? I have an Evo bridge and Air Norton Neck so I was thinking of just getting a Blue Velvet but I'd like to hear your opinions. As Blade pickups are concerned I was leaning towards a Chopper for Mid Position
OK, so the story is i wanted a cheaper and more simple guitar as a sort of contrast to my jem, so about the time i go looking for reviews of epiohines, PRS's and the odd standard fender i eventually am about to give up and so i go onto merchant city music dot com and right there on the front...
This is a project i'm working on, for a friend/customer here in Brazil.
Here are some specs:
JS body made of
1 piece brazilian mahogany body,
H-S-H (no rings) w/ Lion's Claw,
Gotoh Floyd Rose and tuners,
brazilian MAHOGANY NECK
brazilian rosewood fretboard w/ insane Goth inlay,
My new custom guitar's gonna have an Air Norton neck, Cruiser mid, and Evo 2 bridge. I know someone who tapped the Air Norton and said it had a GREAT tone tapped. Has anyone on jemsite tried/had an Evo 2 tapped? Curious as to how it'll sound, although I guess I'll find out by the end of the week.

I usually keep my forum adventures exclusive of eachother, but I'm looking for as much feedback as possible on this. So here it is:
I scored myself an RGA121 with a natural finish from guitar center the other day for 450 bucks. I had been playing this guitar on and off for like 2-3 years but...
I have an Ibanez RGT42FX and a Mesa Mark IV widebody combo. I am going for John Petrucci's tone from the Liquid Tension Experiment era. Would the Steve's Special or Tone Zone help me achieve this tone? Remember, the Ibanez RGT42FX is a neck through maple guitar with mahogany body...
So Jim gave me the challenge and I accept. He's right, I have no structured and finished songs so this thread will be me writing a song, from start to finish. And then I assume we will compare my approach to Jims' (if he ever does upload his godly creations).
I just got an RGA121NTF, and I love it, but I have a few ideas for it :D I'm thinking about getting a solid white German made No.1 guitar strap (The same elastic strap used by Buckethead), Schaller Strap-Locks of course, and some new pickups. A Dimarzio Air Norton in the neck, that is black and...
Hey guys, I've been lurking around here for a while and came on here to ask my fellow 20th Anniversary RG owners a question; specifically to those who have put DiMarzio's or EMG's on them. I've been thinking of putting some DiMarzio's on it in place of the stock pickups. So my question is, is it...
I have searched posts here & found some relative info. Still, I'd like to hear from some Ibz-ers here who have done this & can share their experience in this area. I've had two 7 strings in the last 6 years, eventually trading them off. I'm ready to settle in with one again, so I've got a 2000...
