    I found a Latin American guitar at a pawn shop, but it's tuned in FIFTHS! Apparently, they like violin tunings down south. If I do standard tuning, will the guitar need to be set-up for intonation? Or is string gauge more of a factor in intonation?

    Anybody got one? What do you think of it? I'm looking for a non-FR 7string for alternate tunings (too hard to do it on my 1527 even with the tremol-no locked).

    I noticed that a lot of people have seven strings that would have been strictly a six string player So why do companies like Ibanez have very poor seven strings on their line up Will they ever reporoduce their 762x, 742x, XL series again?

    I have 2 rg470s that have served me pretty well gigging. I use the whammy bar extensively and experience lack of trem tunining stability. So, I researched this forum (thank you to all) and other sources extensively; I considered 1570s, 2570s, and 8570s, and so far, I've bought on 570. I've...

    I just found out about the Tremolo-No and I've got a couple questions for those who have used it on an RG. When installed, can you treat your guitar just like a real hard tail? Can you take the locking nut off at the neck and not have the screws in? I just bought my first hard tail a couple...

    Seriously... Last week I got the craziest bout of GAS. I just wanted to buy something, I didn't particularly care what. I found myself, a lifelong strat player and tube snob, posting threads over at sevenstring.org asking for opinions on the Epi LP7's and the PodXT just for a late night...
  8. Off-topic / Miscellaneous

    It's a Vigier Excalibur Ultra in sapphire blue with a very cool maple top as you can from the photos. It's a very unique flame. I believe the body wood is alder. It has the natural scraped binding and matching headstock. I replaced the EMGs with an Air Norton in the neck and a Steve's Special...

    I'm assuming you can't say you have GAS with your very first guitar purchase, so now that I've found my 2nd guitar I think I can say this qualifies as GAS. :) I've been eyeing the Ibanez SZ models for a while now, with the intent of buying a fixed bridge guitar. (I love my RG550MXXRF, my very...

    I started writing this long, long ago but I never finished it. It has been sat on my hard drive for ages, but I figured someone somewhere might benefit from this information. So here it is... incomplete, but probably quite useful? I don't know. Maybe I'll finish it one day. STRING TENSION...

    Mmk, well not long ago i bought a jem7v. At the time, it was a huge decision between it and pgm301. I think i can play better on the pgm, but the jem had the trem, and i need a trem. Ive got it for about a week, until i take it back to the shop to have it properly set up (they couldnt do it...

    Not sure if I should post this here or in the "Gear/Equipment" section, but... I've finished the first draft of a review of the various floating-trem stabilizer solutions out there: Tremsetter, WD Tremolo Stabilizer, Ibanez BackStop, ESP Arming Adjuster, Goeldo BackBox, and the Tremol-No. I...

    I have for sale here an Ibanez Prestige 3120 in Twilight Blue. It is in pristine condition. There are only a few polish swirls and that is it. There are no dents, dings, scratches, pitting in the trem or anything else wrong with it. I bout it off the bay a month or so ago. Item number was...

    Just like the Xiphos 7, there has been a lot of interest over at sevenstring.org about a 7 string RG (mostly people say they want one that is not made from basswood). I'd buy one. It would be the answer to many people at ss.org's prayers, ha ha. Just a suggestion.

    I am looking at one in the catalog and assumed they were made in Japan. I was wrong. They are made in Indonesia. These necks are called Wizard II but are thicker than the Wizard necks. I just bought another (my second) RG470 and love the neck, but want a fixed bridge for emergency...
