    As promised, here's my review of the RG 20th. Lazy people look away now, this could be lengthy, though I will attempt to keep it brief! This particular beast is the Road Flare Red model, delivered to me on the exact date I got my first one. How's that for timing?! Having owned the original...

    Hi everyone, First off, I'd like to say that this seems like a great board filled with wonderfully informative members. I have a few questions if you don't mind. I should say that I'm not very knowledgable with any technical aspects of guitars (so Please be patient). I'm currently trying to...

    Ok. Yes Im stupid. You can all flame this thread. I just got new strings. Blue Steels. 9-42's. I just installed them now. When all the strings were on, i notice a lot of buzz coming from my Low E and A strings. All up the fretboard. It wont stop!!!! And worse than that. When i get the angle...

    Hello, I seem to have a problem with many of my guitars. The action starting at the nut gradually rises by the time it reaches the 24th fret. Actually there's almost .04mm of change. At the nut, the action is about 1mm on the high E and 1.3mm on the low E. By the time I reach the 24th fret, the...

    My Jackson has been playing like ass for the last few months (Bad buzzing, choking bends, dead frets) and nothing has fixed it, you know the usual bridge height adjustments, truss rod adjustments, etc. The action has been getting higher and higher to overcome some of this, but its getting to the...

    I remembered about this old trick that Rich Harris brought up a few years back about lubing the contact points between the bridge knife edges and the bridge height adjustment screws. I was restringing my JEMG7VW (EMG's) and thought I'll give it a try. Before I did this, my bridge would return...

    Hello, i seem to have run into a bit of a problem. I have the action set pretty low on my 7vwh and all of the strings have a pretty bearable amount of fret buzz except the B which buzzes like crazy. I'd really like to be able to play with the action this low but at the moment this one string is...

    I have an old RG550 from 1990. I want to set it up like the Steve vai's JEM7vwh is setup in terms of action, nut height, neck angle etc. does someone know how these specs are on the JEM7vwh out of the factory? and, are the 7vwh guitars come out of the factory shimmed in the neck pocket? if yeah...

    Anybody have an opinion on whether JB Weld is a sufficient epoxy for fixing the trem post anchors which are loose in my UV777BK? The bass side anchor hole is just a touch egg shaped, the treble side it still round, but loose.

    Hi, I love this site and this is my first posting. I just bought a brand new Jem 7vwh 1 week ago. They had 2 in stock and I played one of them 2 different times so I knew this was the guitar I wanted. When I went back to buy it, one had been sold. I know I got the one I didn't play before...

    Just curious if using the slightly thicker top three strings(E,A, and G) will cause more stress on my VBK neck, and I will need to adjust so the neck doesn't get pulled more to the left? Make any sense? I'm using the Daddario XL .009-.046 strings :?

    Just got (as in about 5 days ago) my new RG3120, more or less directly from the factory, and it feels really weird. It's stiff as a crowbar and has a very unpersonal feel/sound. Before I decided to go with a 3120 I tried several others in various places and not one of them felt like this one...

    Over the last couple of weeks, i've started jamming regularly with a group of musicians (we're sort of in the proto-band phase), and i've been practicing a lot more than i have in months... even years. This is a Good Thing. I'm finally putting my Parker through its paces, and i'm loving every...

    Hi guys & dolls! My new axe has this imperfection, tell me if it's way normal or I have to do something. When I pull the whammy bar down, it's all ok, the strings return in tune, but when I do the opposite movement ( pull the bar up, or doing some "glitches" or whatever You call it ), the tuning...

    Hi, my JEM came with a little bag of allen wrenches. That's a good thing, but I don't know the use of them. I can figure out the one I use when changing strings, but what of the others ? Also, as I am quite gifted at loosing the wrenches wherever I go, I would like to know the size of them...
