    Ok, so I got the new album a couple of days ago and on the first couple of listens have to say it's pretty good. There are a couple of songs that I'm not too keen on,but as a band they are spot on. Nuno's playing and riffs are immense, he certainly hasn't slowed down and still plays for Extreme...

    Hi, I am selling my Ibanez RG7CSD-1 7-string guitar. There's a page on Jemsite that describes the model better than I probably can, but basically it's a Japanese-market only guitar that was designed by the L.A. Custom Shop and built in 2000 for the 2001 model year. It has a basswood body...

    I finally found love with my RG1570 after putting a Tone Zone in the bridge and a Breed in the neck. But After trying endless pickups in the middle position, (chopper, air norton s, blue velvet) I can't seem to find one I like. So I've decided to put it back to 5 way switching and give it a...

    Just wondering if there are any Carvin fans in here? I think they make some of the best quality guitars and especially necks around. To this day my Bolt Plus guitar has the best playing/feeling neck i`ve ever seen. Any love for Carvin?

    Hi all, Something quick. Last night, I was playing at high volume, fairly high overdrive and I noticed that in positions 2 and 4 my pickups where picking up the radio! It was faint, but there. I don't really get any extra hum on any selection but that scared me. I tracked it down to the...

    After doing a lot of reading I think I have decided I like the description of the Dimarzio Steve's Special & Breed pickups. Would this combination work in a Jem? I'de thought a SS Bridge, & Breed (M) & Neck!!! Does anyone have this setup? Unfortunatley OZ Dealers aren't helpful when it comes to...

    A well known and respected guitar tech in my area installed an Air Zone in the bridge position and Air Norton in the neck position of my Schecter Custom Shop while also setting up action, fret leveling and crowning, etc. The pickups have some serious problems. The guitar is just the 2...

    It is a classic and for me in many ways better than any PRS, but that as always is a matter of taste. This one is at least much more rare than a PRS. This version of the guitar is no longer made. The guitar is in mint condition. Patrick Eggle guitars are made from selected woods and...

    Anyone out there own one? I'm intrigued by all of the switching and was wondering how good the single coil sounds really are compared to a trusty strat? Also, how's the trem in terms of feel? Does the trem float or is it fixed against the body? How's the range? I've seen some really...

    Hi, Just wanted to show off my Patrick Eggle (12 years old and counting). It is a classic and for me in many ways better than any PRS, but that as always is a matter of taste. This one is at least much more rare than a PRS. Also I have really abused her on gigs, but she still looks prisine...

    I'm not sure if this would be awesome or stupid, but here goes: On an Ibanez RG 350EX (HSH) use a 5 way switch, 3 volume pots (all push/pulls for coil tapping, with the single coil in the middle being a 4-conductor wiring Dimarzio Pro Track) and 3 tone pots, one for each volume pot. The...

    I have a Flextone III 1x12 combo, and it's cool, ...but I guess I just want to find out what a tube amp is all about. The curiosity is just killing me so I want to get myself a good tube amp on a budget and, well, see if I can tell the difference, see what all the hype is about, see if I've...
