    I picked up 7620 and I don't plan to pursue the 7-string style. So I've strung it as x B E A D F# B, and I'm liking the tuning. This works when I play Journey songs -- I can change the key and sing the songs without changing fingerings. A friend suggested stringing my extra RG570 this way...

    Hi, I don't know if anybody knew that there are new baritone John Petrucci guitars coming out this year? I just noticed on John's site. They're pretty amazing. You could click on the pic for more info. :) Alwin

    I really want to tune my guitar to C G C F A D... but I have a floyd rose... I'm planning on buying a tremol-no with the deep C and always leave it fixed to make thing easier but I really don't know what string gauges I should use. I was thinking of a 11-15-22p-30(or 32?)-44-56 set but I'm not...
  5. Pickups & wiring
    Good Pickup for Metal? I need some help finding a good bridge pickup for my Ibanez, I need something that has a high output, but isnt muddy. I tune 1 1/2 steps down. I was thanking about a Seymour Duncan Invader. does anyone know anything about this pickup.

    So recently i have been in the works of getting a baritone guitar, and i am curious of what everyone takes on this. How to choose one or is there a way to make existing guitars baritone with ease? i am completely lost on this situation and could use some guidance
  7. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    Hi, I was wondering about something and thought perhaps you knowledgable JemSite folks could help me out :) I like to use quite heavy gauge strings, usually 12-54 in standard tuning, and so far on quite thick necks like Strats or some Jacksons I haven't had any issues, but I keep on reading...

    So we've all seen the new Ibanez stuff, and most of us have probably seen the new ESP stuff (some of which is fantastic, I might add)... ...but what else is new for '08? Post anything new that you come across :-) P.S.: That includes... Caparison Schecter Music Man Fender etc.

    I was thinking of getting a 7 string and tuning the normal 6 strings to C and then dropping the biggest one down and was told it would be an F. True? If so, how would this sound, has anyone done it before and what guage would be recommended?
  10. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    I'm looking to buy a new guitar, and I'm really considering the Ibanez Jem7v but what's really important to me is versatility. I pretty much don't play anything except hardcore rock with lot's of pinch harmonics or soft/acoustical type stuff. Is this guitar good for low tunings, like drop C...

    What tunings does he use? I heard something about C... is that open C tuning or is that C standard?

    I'm very interested in this 8 string!!! Can't find an awful lot of info on it though, Ibanez don't even list the factory tuning. I think it is a 7 string with an extra high string, but I really want an extra low one! Does anyone know if it would be possible to set it up for (low to high) F# B E...

    1) We already talked about the lack of maple fretboards on the other post. 2) Lack of colors, stop spending time on stupid new body shapes and stick to making your bread and butter guitars better. If you have blue, red, white black, bodies on some guitars why not offer eack color on most the...

    On the song Rollin, is he using an effect to give the effect of sliding down the chord during the chorus. I would think that if he were doing it with his hands, you would here the chord go from fret to fret as he slides down. It sounds like a pedal that works like you trem bar would, only the...
