fingerboard wood

  1. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    This is also for the JS model. if they are going to put the edge trem on the 20th and black dog series. then why cant they just put them on all of them? same goes for the JEMs. why not just put all of them as Lo pro standard? its all that Vai uses. IMO, the edge and lo pro get better...

    I just restrung a few guitars at my house, with the same strings. GHS Boomers 9-42's Yet they feel a lot lighter on one guitar (22 fret with OFR) than they do on another (24 fret Schecter) I didn't measure the length of the guitars. I'm wondering if the length from bridge to nut has anything...

    Well now that I got your attention......Does anyone have the ability to start a site dedicated to sample clips? Or we could start a thread and attempt to funnel clips into it. It always hard to find clips when you want to. Any ideas?

    Can anyone help with a tutorial on the safe way to remove neck dot inlays. I want to remove them from the neck and fill them in to leave the neck blank.

    What's your favorite fingerboard wood and why? I'm a maple guy, I just like how it looks.

    If you guys could build the official Jemsite Jem mascot guitar, what would you do? Something to think about.
  10. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    Which do you all prefer, as far as tone and playability (fretboards of course)? I've never had the chance to play an ebony boarded JEM or RG, but I've always wondered what they felt like.

    On the eve of the JEM20th announcement, it has become necessary to start a single, organized, contained thread where Ibanez customers of past and present can convey their dissatisfaction of the JEM/UV line to Steve Vai (and indirectly to Ibanez). Some of you are misguided in that you think...

    Just a thought guys and gals - it's the anniversary of the Jem AND the RG series this year. There's lots of talk of a 20th Jem but what about a 20th RG? I'd certainly buy one if the spec and colours were good :D
  14. Comments to Ibanez
    I doubt I'm alone when I say that I want more 7-strings from Ibanez. I have no complaints about the guitars that already in production, but there's just way too few options. Not to mention the complete lack of neck-through sevenstrings. In short, I'd like to see sevenstrings with different...

    Im buying a fixed bridge 6-string as a "back-up"/alternate-tuning guitar to my 8670. Currently this is what im considering: Either a 2002-model PRS Custom 24 Blue Matteo. It has 2 previous owners, but bought new in '04. Mint condition - $2000. Keep in mind that these cost $3700 new here...

    How much does the neck joint on a guitar effect the tone. I am trying to decide what I want from my next guitar, through necks seems like a good idea but they seem few and between. Was wondering if it’s a big deal tone wise or more along the magnitude of choice of fingerboard wood. While I am...

    I'm am going to be getting into custom guitar building, mostly for selling, but I may keep a few to myself in the future ;). What I need to from you jemsiters is suggestions on what woods to use, I know my preferences, but like I said before I'm basically building them to sell (so I figure take...
  19. Pickups & wiring
    Hey folks I was reading the post on 'thoughts on the tone zone' and it got me thinking. I think its about time we should do a test for ourselves on what our pickups are actually putting out. Between all of us we have a huge resource of pickups in different mounting configurations and in...

    Which wood is the best for necks? What's the difference between a RG470 and an RG470DX? Do any RG570s come with sharktooth inlays? Also, is it possible to add a pickguard to 570s or 760s?
