    I was just wondering how do you guys deal with a neck that's really dry feeling and seems to make the playing feel stiff? Do you use lemon oil, fast fret or what? I love my RG7321 but it's got this horrible stiffness about it, I can't really glide up and down the fretboard with much ease...

    This isn't meant to be a rant, but what's wrong with bringing back the Blue Sparkle JEM of a few years ago? I'm sure they would appeal to at least as many people as the 7Vwh and the 77bk, while also looking slighty out of the ordinary (but not totally off the wall, which could put some of the...

    It doesn't matter if it is worth $150 or $5000. When you are done for the night, do you wipe it down (clean it) or walk away and clean it when you feel like\get around to it? And, we are talking about guitars here! 8O I've always walked away and rarely cleaned it, just when I feel I have the...
