    Have you ever wondered how some guys can seem to get by and strike fame and fortune in the music business without the looks? Who are some of the "rock stars" you acknowledge have made it big (fame, fortune, skill, reputation, etc.) despite not having the looks. I'll start off with a few (in no...
  2. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    I have a RG2550 Prestige that comes with Edge Pro, I've noticed that the tremolo bar that comes with it is significantly heavy that it affects tuning stability. I have noticed the Edge Pro itself is a rather heavy tremolo unit so tuning is affected when the angle of the guitar changes while...

    Haven't posted in awhile (had to remember it's only the internet) but thought I,d show you's and updated pic of the group. New (from the last pic) is the Peavey Flame-top Wolfgang/Jackson RR24/Ibanez Paul Stanley PS10-2. (Flash)
  4. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    Hey.. just spotted something on Sims Custom Guitar Shop. It's a 13-piece JEM body (it is also on the 'Bay). Isn't that TOO extreme? I mean, sure it is beautiful, but it's bound to lose tone with so many body pieces! http://www.simscustomshop.com/page9.html (scroll almost all the way down)

    "Back in the day" we had the guys like Satch and Vai, and Nuno and George Lynch, plus guys like Scott Ian from Anthrax and the guys from Metallica and Megadeth. But... Who are the guys that the 15 year olds want to grow up to be? The UK guitar magazine try to convince us it's Trivium and...

    I was watching some vids and this question came to me.. Do rhythm guitarists crave gear / tone like lead guitarists do??? For me, most of the sound I am 'looking' for has to do with lead.. If I only played rhythm, I would never have parted with my genz benz ( heavy sounding like a mesa...

    Lately I've been paying alot of attention to tone, and mostly in Rock guitar. I would really like to see some players you guys enjoy tone wise. I'm gonna list some, and I gotta say, the guy I HATE the most is Brad Gillis, worst guitar player ever, but anyway, here is my List of best tone in...

    Who do you guys think are responsible for MAJOR changes to rock guitar playing, the guitar itself, etc. through the years?? Mine are: 1. Les paul-for inventing the electric guitar 2. Jim Marshall-obvious reasons.. 2. Jimmy hendrix-for being really the 1st guy to play guitar that way. He made...

    What i'm asking is if you can get a really f***in' HEAVY sounding Metal riffage sound from the Crunch or Ultra channels on the JSX,kinda' somewhere near to 5150/6505 territory ? I'm looking at buying a new head and i'm basically trying to decide between a Peavey 5150/6505,a Peavey JSX or an...

    Ok so i know that most people here like the Jem, Js, and PGM signature guitars. So why doesn't anyone like any other signature models? Is it beacuse you think they look like [email protected]? Is it beacuse you don't like the artist that has their name on it? Have you actually played one and found that...

    I had a really great time demoing a lot of amps today. I happened to be browsing the web for info about Splawns a few weeks ago, and turns out that one of Splawn's biggest dealers lives only about 45 minutes away at his in-house run store, Rebel Amps. Splawns aren't the only thing he deals...

    I realise that it's all down to opinion, but I thought it would be interesting to see who fellow Jemsiters think is the best guitarist ever. My vote is for Steve Vai... ( I think he will be a popular choice:)) What do YOU think? Rock on!

    I've done research on harmony central and these forums, and have looked around for decent prices to purchase either the ADA MP1 or the Mesa Studio Preamp. Both have gotten rave reviews. From what I've heard, they can both do a good bit of gain, and have great tone. I've never actually seen a...

    Hi guys! I own a marvellous rg2620 cubed ice.... it mounts two dimarzio/ibz pups.... I was wandering if upgrading to better pups would impressively increase my sound... What do you guys think? Thanks

    Here I always thought I've gotten a bit larger the last 10+ years because I've gotten older and generally lazier, maybe it's just because I don't play in a band anymore: http://www.calorie-count.com/calories/activity/211.html
