    Hi All, I wanted to get some advice regarding tuning down my GRG270B, to drop-C tuning. Basically the guitar I'm referring to is fitted with an Ibanez Edge III Tremolo system. It was my general understanding that to tune down, you need to loosen the springs at the back of the guitar, so...

    Ok so I've been saving some cash to get a really pimped out guitar. Originally I wanted a Jem, and still do eventually, but I think for now I'm gonna get a custom carvin. It's more pimped out but cheaper, and although I love floating bridges I would rather get really good at just a fixed bridge...

    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...

    I watched a demo off a new tremolo which wont get out of tune, even if a string breaks. They called it StepMax. Anyone tried it? http://sleipnerguitars.com/movies/jamsession3.mov http://sleipnerguitars.com/movies/jamsession2.mov http://sleipnerguitars.com/movies/jamsession1.mov :D No one...

    So, I've been looking at Schecter for the last coupla years, but always end up buying an Ibanez every time. I've been playin' them for 20 years and Ibanez just rule, but the Hellraisers look, sound and play pretty bad ass for the most part. I say the "most part" because I've played 4 or 5...

    Hey, what do you guys that have whammy bar guitars do when your learning songs and you find some that are in different tunings? Do you guys set up your guitar to that tuning? or do you play the song in your current tuning? or for example, if you the song your learning is in E flat, and you are...

    For some reason whenever I search on this site my browser "quits unexpectedly"; sorry if this thread has been done. Anyway, I lowered my bridge (Lo-Pro) as far as it will go and I'm still not happy with my action. I'd like it lower, and I've seen other threads where someone says "you should...

    I'm looking to buy a new guitar, and I'm really considering the Ibanez Jem7v but what's really important to me is versatility. I pretty much don't play anything except hardcore rock with lot's of pinch harmonics or soft/acoustical type stuff. Is this guitar good for low tunings, like drop C...

    got a jem, from 1990... I noticed that I must tune it several times before it stays in place... it stays in tune well, but when i do tune it if its a bit out, i have to tune it ... than tune it again... and again until they stay in place, because they keep going back once i tune them all. Why is...

    I got my Jem 7v today, but the action is a bit to high. Im having trouble trying to figure out how to lower it. It looks as if theres a allen key hole inside the allen key hole. Do you have to unlock this some how? None of the allen keys provided fit the small hole inside the hole.

    ..... to get the edge pro trem level on action height? what i mean is should the height on either stud be identical or is ok if the treble side is lower than the bass side... if its uneven would it cause problems with the tremolo operation? TIA

    What are some ways to increase sustain besides actually buying a sustainer (the Fernandes Sustainer has been discontinued as far as I know)? I know that higher gain also increases it but I wanted to know if you guys had any tips on making the notes last longer. Thanks.

    Ay guys, I'm so sorry to bring this up YET AGAIN, but I am agonizing here and I just can't decide which one I want to get. Please give me your opinions on which model you like better and why? Your feedback may help me decide. Maybe. ;) Okay.... I'm stuck between the AG86 And the AG95...

    This bridge is killing me - I can never seem to get it set up properly and I never seem to be able to get through a string change without breaking a string on this thing. When I purchased this guitar last year and changed strings for the first time, I could not get it to stay in tune at all (I...
