    What would you guys be playing if there was no ibanez? I would probably play fenders and carvins :)

    Ok, I think a string is a string is a string. Most of them are really good for a short period of time before degrading (at least with my acidic hands). So, my tactic is go cheap since I'm going to replace them soon anyway. I've tried some long life (Elixer) strings with some success, but I'm...

    So to make a long story short, my lead guitar player is finally graduating with his music degree. He is a very solid player, been playing 10+ years and has played nothing but Ibanez mainly, specifically an older S that he really loves. His guitar teacher for the past 5 years plays nothing but...

    Has anyone else had an issue with their Tite-Fit string sets? Specifically, strings that are beyond allowing for proper intonation? After having utilized both D'addario and Ernie Ball strings for several years, I chose to give the DR's Tite-Fit 9-42 a shot. After having purchased 6 sets of...

    I have to admit that i didn't like Steve Lukather in the past. But now, as i'm growing older :) and out of my shredding phase :) i digg his playing very much. And he's got that big, airy, non-dry sound, at least on newer records i heard. I'm wondering what amps he uses? Or is his sound that way...

It all started when i heard the Supersonic at...

    I just got this guitar and seached but have not found out who is the maker of the strings and what size they are. I do like how they feel and play and like to buy this set again.

    What do you guys use? I personally love Elixirs. They freakin' last forever. I made the mistake of buying a pack of polyweb Elixirs instead of nanoweb though and i slip off of em. Gotta remember to check the box next time!

    I Mainly use D'Addario's. But lately I have been trying other types of strings. Right now I am using Ernie Balls. I wanted to try Rotosound and Elixir. Any suggestions?

    I once read about some machine that some places have now, that they use to fret dress guitars to perfect measurements to allow really low action. I forget what these are called, can anyone help me out? a link?

    Up for trade/sale is my Ibanez RG1527 in blue. Guitar is in fairly decent shape all around, except I did manage to chip it in quite a few spots due to the quality of Ibanez finishes :P The guitar comes with two white D Activators, but if necessary I can install the stock pickups and lower the...

    A lot. 9-42 supers. Lately, within the last few months....them bastards have been breaking hell. I've done it all, filed the blocks, changed the blocks around, swapped the D and low E blocks....I've done it all. Examined all the entire saddle area under lit magnification When you're playing...

    I like Dee Addys but man DR Strings are crap. What do you think?

    I noticed slight annoyance with my new RG2550 after I set up tremolo and action. Trem bar touches (very slightly, but annoying) volume pot while I'm rotating it (in neutral position). Also, sometimes I hear some cracking springy noise when rotating trem bar. Any idea what could that be? There...

    Hello all, I'm new here. I would like to begin by saying I am an employee for DR strings, I work in Quality Control, Press Releases, and Online sections of DR. Is there anything I need to do/need to know about posting? Oh, and I have a question. Do/have you use(d) DR Strings, and do you...

    My guitar teacher keeps ranting and raving about the DR Extra coated strings I've been putting on my guitar. In his opinion, he says they last a while, which means your guitar sounds like crap for a long time. I had to replace my high E-string after 2 weeks of play it went dead. I also...

    What are your thoughts on DR Strings? I just bought a set from the Bay, they are Hi-Beams, 9-42. I wonder if I should have got Tite-Fit instead? I do like my strings to be nice and bright. Any positives or negatives, in your opinion? I have been using D'Addario XL120's for about 20 years now...

    No... I'm not going to move out of floyds but I have a question... You know how people would fill in a piece of wood in their floyd rose route then install a fixed bridge? I wonder if you used a different wood fill would you have some drastic tone changes? E.g. Mahogany fill in a basswood...
