Looks like Gibson re thought the Standard and gave it some of the more popular features it probably should've had for a few years, without much or a price bump
Body Wood: Chambered mahogany
Top wood: Plain maple
Neck Joint: Set-in
Neck Wood: Mahogany
Plek'd on Gibson...
Okay so its new guitar time. The white one started life as a 2002 MIM I got cheap off the 'bay. I got a Mighty Mite neck for it, some Fender locking tuners, a Seymour Duncan JB Jnr, Lil 59 and Duckbucker, some graph tech saddles, an electronices upgrade kit that apparently comprises some of the...
I've been looking a little more closely at Jackson lately, and am drooling over some of their models like the DKMGT (EMG's and reverse headstock), and I was wondering about their quality/product herachy verses Ibanez's. I'm beginning to be unhappy with Ibanez's product-line...
Ok just stumbled on this video clip of an aussie guitarist promoting the guitar show in NSW.
They say he is the fastest guitarist in the world, and he was timed.
Who knows if thats true or not ?
but he does a solo at the end to some nice acoustic guitarist and totally butchers it by shredding...
Well, my addiction is never ending. I traded for this Samick Fastback and have another strat coming in..
I ordered a dimarzio Dp193 air norton for the neck and a dimarzio Evo 2 for the bridge. I am thinking of swapping out the bridge and tuners for black hardware. I am awaiting a set of tuners...
I want to change on stock pickups on my RG520. I play Metal & Classic Rock(David Gilmour), love Eric Johnson's tone. As per the endless posts on this topic I should go for a Air Noton/PAF Pro combination, but the Tech guys from Dimarzio suggest that I should use PAF Joe(Neck) & Mo’...
For all you Gilmour and strat lovers, there is finally going to be a David Gilmour custom strat planned for release in 2008.
Like Ibanez, Fender have decided on black :o

Forgive me. This waiting for my JEM7VWH to ship from Rich is killing me so I feel compelled to start a meaningless thread to help pass the time until she arrives.
So just for the heck of it, who's your 12 favorite guitarists? Lets say we all love Vai and Satriani so you can't include them. I'm...
Had platinum tickets to Satriani monday night in Tampa. Shook hands with the man himself!!!! This is info from his crew......There will be no Vai going out with G3 this fall. He has commitments to the Zappa thing he's doing so it will be Satch and some all new players. It is going to be strange...
So what pickups do you use? and why do you use them?
I use a dimazrio X2N in the bridge position of my RR3. It has alot of power behind it and really brings the guitar to life.
In my 7 string i use a Bareknuckle 7 string Warpig, because it is very responsive to the bass...

I'm interested in Installing my MIA Strat with an EMG SA set, but I'd like some hands on experience from someone who's already done it before.
I'm wanting to preserve the strat tone as best I can, as well as The typical glassy Icepick attack, and the sweet position 2 and 4 sound.
The reason I...

Heheh, well hey guys and girls. I just thought since I'm relatively new to this wonderful little community I would kick off a general topic so I can get to know a bit about you all. I hope we get a lot of information off people so feel free to post your own stuff!
This is topic is by no way...
Anyone here got a jem guitar with 3 single coil configuation like a strat?
ive been thinking of making an Yngwie Strat / Jem hybrid... well, im actually in the process of getting all the bits together now, always liked the idea of a scalloped maple neck jem, and i really dig the H-3 and JYM...
I have just purchased another Ibanez RG550 on that ole auction site.
It is that "dayglo orange" "flare red" colour. And it looks very cool.
It has a white DiMarzio in the neck, and it looks in very good condition.
Oh, and I thought it was a bargain at just £195!! :D
Lovely, well all...
Let's keep this light, 'cause it has potential for Eruption (subliminal suggestion there...)
Which guitarists - that you enjoy listening to - make you think "how the heck did they choose those notes?!" I've been listening to a lot of players for a while now, and for some of them it's "playing...
