Don't get me wrong, I love Jems/UV's as much as anyone, but I think I have my fair share of em, and I have been gassing for a good LP for some time now. Let's start out with your LP's please post pics and stories...
  5. Pickups & wiring
    Need some guidance on installing some Dimarzio PUs. I'm looking over the installation sheet from DiMarzio for installing a H-S-H (in a 1570.) It looks like they have the bridge humbucker "upside down" and the neck humbucker "right side up." From DiMarzio's instructions: "Observe the...

    Here is a 1982 Epiphone Spirit, in good condition for its age. It's a double cutaway, single bridge humbucker model, as you can see from the pics. It's made in the USA, at the Kalamazoo plant if I understand the "KZ" labeling correctly. It plays well, with good action and minimal fretwear...

    This really could be a thread about a few topics, but mainly I'd like to know how to get my high frets fixed on my new RG350 DX. I'm not all that upset about it, just need to know what common practice is for fixing high frets. The 8th fret is high enough that it completely chokes playing the...

    Any interest in a 1989 Robin Medley Custom? They were making the Medley Custom in Japan, then when they started moving production to USA in 1987, they called it the USA version the Medley Custom TX (for Texas). Usually the USA Robins have "Made in USA" on the headstock and a Texas shaped logo...

    Sorry, no pics yet and I can't review the pickups yet. I have had the guitar about a month now, so here are the bullet points on the new 24 fret S5470, slanted towards Jem/RG owners. 1. Body: The EGEN18 funny looking grip is most likely a blessing, grabbing the S5470 by the horn is not...
