    I just recorded this improvisation today. So yeah, some people still say that the Jem is meant to play "Vai stuff" only, but I'm particularly fond of the fat neck DiMarzio Evolution tone for these things. Here's the video:

    Grabbed this for my dad as a retirement present (he plays folk and folk rock so it's about perfect for him, and it's in a whole different ballpark than his current 15-year-old Champion 30 solid state amp), and figured I should shoot some video of it before it left my place. I've always thought...
  3. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    Hi everyone, I bought an RG1550 with cosmo black edge pro trem. The cosmo black finish is in pretty good chape, but the steel sound chips from the lower strings have black marks. I believe is because the sweat applied during palm mutting. Any ideas of how to clean this marks? thanks.

    So the back of my guitar's neck looks a bit like someone covered in coal had a go on it :/ it's a 3 pc maple job so i don't know whether to just use some elbow grease and a dry rag to get it off, light wire wool or sand paper to take a bit off the surface, or what. Thanks for any help.

    Hey guys, I've learned so much from Jemsite that I thought I'd make a little tutorial on polishing your frets and making them look like new! What you will need is: 1. Masking tape 2. 0000 grade Steel Wool 3. Metal Polish ( I use Brasso) 4. Polshing cloth (or buffer wheel) (or a t shirt you...

    First off I love my ENGL screamer 50's lead channel... But I am thinking of trading it for a Mesa Mark III green stripe or a 5:50 express to get a better clean while still being able to pull off some metal sounds. The engl has a very "clean" clean channel but sounds very sterile. Im basically...
  7. Pickups & wiring
    I was thinking of a pickup swap for my Ibanez RG350 (basswood body), and was wondering if anyone had any experience with the Dimarzio D-Activator X or the Dimarzio Humbucker From Hell, looking for D-Activator in the bridge, Humbucker From Hell in the neck. Does anyone know if the sound will...

    My Ibanez SAS32EX has been in regular use by me for around a couple of months or so now, and its fretboard is FILTHY. I've been giving it small cleans every now and then, but I'm not sure why it's so disgusting. Almost every fret is completely covered in what I can only assume is skin. Is there...
  9. Pickups & wiring
    im looking to do a complete overhaul on my collection of guitars and their pickups, and instead of going on dimarzio's site, finding a pickup, googling if the combination works, rinsing and repeating like i have been doing the last few days i thought id grab the bull by the horns and ask here...
  10. Pickups & wiring
    Hey guys. Another Dimarzio Pickup question. Its just a short one but I'd like to know. If i were to install a Liquifire into the neck of my BRMR, would it be able to get a good jazzy type clean? But also have that clean neck pup lead tone?? I played one of the most recent JPM BFR models...

    What is the best way of cleaning the BACK of this type of neck? SA series has an "unfinished" neck, just like RG i think. It certainly IS finished and has some kind of very thin lacquer or something on it, but it is not as shiny and smooth as a fender neck for example. I was told at the guitar...

    I already post a thread about this, but after trying and reading, some changes have been made. I found out that I can get used amps much cheaper, so what could you recommend? I look for a versatile amp with good cleans and good high gain channels. 2 or more channels. If possible at least 2...
  14. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    Howdy folks, Mines a jem7vwh 08 model. Plays superb. I've been playing 20 years and feel fairly accomplished in my speed, range etc. However, I just feel a bit stuck on how to improved the cleanliness of my pick attack. I simply cannot get crystal clear arpeggios or sweeps and either my...

    Hey there, I wonder if anyone has had a chance to check out Joe's amps at recent clinics or pre-show stage tour to see how he is setting the clean controls on the JSX? I saw his setup during a stage tour about 2 years ago but was unfortunately a few beers worse for wear and don't remember...

    Alright guys, sorry if this is spam, but I need help FAST!!!!!!!!! I've been offered a KILLER deal on an RGA121. I've heard GREAT things about how these guitars feel, play, look etc. But I'm concerned of the actual tone it's body wood produces! I'm leaning towards a rock tone, not quite...

    Hey, I have a 1989 RG 570 and it's got little scratches all over....nothing serious, you can only see them if you inspect it under light. There's also a few chips and dings on it. But there's also some noticeable scratches on it, not big though, but they're there. I was wondering what is the...
