I really haven't found much backup on this, just here and there. Understanding this forum may be biased towards Ibanez, I would still like all opinions of superstrat type guitars and how they compare sonicaly and as far as quality (and visually if interested). Which guitars I have in my mind...
About 11 months ago I was fed up with buying and selling guitars - looking for that 'special' one I'd keep forever. I know this guy in Florida who builds extremely high-end guitars - he builds less than 10 per year - and we spoke about doing a project for me.
This guy has a multi-year waiting...
I have an Rg 1527
and i have decided to get rid of those terrible v7 and v8s
and put in a tone zone for the bridge and an air norton for the neck
Would this be a good choice in pickups?
Im sorry if theirs threads already like this one i did a search but not much came up.
Hey guys I have yet another question on pickup selections for two of my guitars I have two humbuckers and two projects so I Wanted to split them up. the pickups are Dimarzio steves special and a Dimarzio EVO and the guitars are Epiphone sg-310 and a cort strat copy. The SG is the one with Alder...
hey im kinda new here so if this is the wrong forum, sorry.
Does anyone have any Experience with the RG1570 Prestige? Im probobly going to be buying one soon but a lot of the reviews on the internet are written in the "honeymoon" period of the guitar, so they arent always accurate :p:
im looking to spend around £500 on a strat and im wondering which models i should be looking out for.
should i avoid the korean models? they look like they are pretty good value for money if theyre built well.
preferably i would like 22 frets and a 2 point trem.
p.s. pics are always welcome!
I own a Yamaha Pacifica 521.
Alder body, maple neck, rosewood fingerboard.
I want to replace the pickups, and I will go with Seymour Duncans.
On the bridge, I will put a JB. I just love that pickup!
However, I don't really know what to put in...
Put this baby on layaway yesterday! Probably the nicest Strat i`ve ever played. The colour is what they call Belair Green and here is what it looks like........
OK...Ive posted about the RG swapping for a Jem,and my PRS...etc...
WEll...couldnt stay away from my RGs!!!!
Maybe is lurking at this forum too much...I got addicted...
Ended up swapping my PRS ,and got my RGs back!!!
Heres a happy family!!!
Ps: more Jems on the way!!!!
Im going to get an RG pretty soon, there are two major plans im considdering right now. 1. I want a white guitar but prestige quality (Minus jem price lol) so I was thinking I could get a white 350dx and throw a J craft prestige neck and an Edge pro bridge on it, then some dimarzio's. The thing...
199x series RG 570 - can't find it in catalogs!
I was just reminiscing by going through the old Ibanez catalogs on Rich's website and I found something strange.
My 570 doesn't appear to be in any catalogs. The only ones it appears in 91, 92 show it as having an Edge bridge, and all...
Copied this from another forum (I can't take credit for it, it's somebody elses post) I'm just curious as to what the people here had to say
Here's the thing that's been bugging me as I plan my second W build. Pickups - they're as simple as can be, really. I mean, you've got a magnet, some...
Guitar has Alder body, bolt on neck, Maple Fretboard.
I play thrash metal like Testament, Kreator, etc and some death metal like death, morbid angel etc.
I am tuned to D standard, and am using 11-52 guage strings.
I'm looking for something thats not going to be too bright or thin but isnt dark...
Has anyone out there played the ESP Horizon FR(ash body) and FR II(alder body) ?
I am interested in one of these guitars, and was wondering how they compare tonewise.
Any help would be appreciated. :)
...and just had to have it!
2007 Maverick Streetfighter Limited Edition. Only 4 of these in existence, and one is mine, bwahaha. One is being kept by Chris at GuitarZone, so there's two left.
I'm sure this will polarise opinion, but IMO this is the finest looking maple boarded superstrat...
Hi to all..
I'm happy with my Ibanez, but now i'm searching something with fatter neck to play different genres without spend a lot of money (I'm ready to change the pickups).
The question is..what is the best strato copy to buy, also in the used market?
Now, this sh* right here is whatcha call "shill bidding", folks!
One of the most ridiculous things I have ever seen. If you buy off of that auction site then you should always watch for shill bidding with vigilance and report it.
Guitar Fetish is having another blow out on parts and have these...
Not bad for $39
More from the same sale.
I was just wondering for those of you that have the RG550 20th, how does it stack up against a Jem7vwh...I'm assuming there are a lot of differences, but any quick info would be great...
Also, is the yellow not available anymore - it doesn't look like it is on some websites...
