    Well a few months ago i decided I wanted to do a cheapo project. At the time Music 123 had a sale going on and the guitar was on clearance, and I also got a bunch off on the parts as well. I got the OLP Petrucci model and began a quest of making it as similar to the real deal EBMM as a $150...

    I have a chance at a couple of S540 guitars. Is a maple fretboard better/ more desirable than a rosewood with shark teeth inlays? And, while we're at it, what's the concensus on having the metal plate behind the neck (pre '93) or an AANJ (post '92)?

    Hey dudes, i have a JS1000 which i love to death, however i'm looking for another guitar to gig with (i got the JS signed and i'd rather not sweat all over it, lol). I'm thinking about getting a new S prestige but not i'm not sure on what the differences are between the 2170 and the 5470. I...

    How is the neck compared to a wizard2? Is the block joint sorta curved or is it like a strat block joint? and where is the battery box on them?

    What do you think are the advantages if any of a neck thru guitar?

    Well, I got a great deal on this. I had to sell pretty much everything else to pay for it (I try and work a zero sum game on my guitar hobby) but it's worth it. I used to work at Washburn and had a N4 back then that I liked too, but this one is even better. White stain on Swamp Ash with aged...

    Well i wanted something I could mod the crap out of and not really worry about breaking anything. So I had a D-Sonic laying around and thought it needed a home. So with a little thought I decided to get one of the OLP Petrucci guitars, and change all the crap out for good stuff. So I got the...

    I am looking for a guitar, in the 700$ range, new, and I have some specific requirements. Preferably set neck/neck through as I need upper fret access. I could take a bolt on, but it would have to have a good neck join so that I could still have good upper fret access. I don't want a floyd. No...

    I know a few people around here are into Les Pauls. Anyone care to discuss them? Don't get me wrong, I love Jems/UV's as much as anyone, but I think I have my fair share of em, and I have been gassing for a good LP for some time now. Let's start out with your LP's please post pics and stories...

    i recently moved to Canberra (thats the capital of Australia, for our American cousins) from the UK, and had to leave my Jem7V in storage over there, until my brother gets off his behind and ships it here. I have always been a fan of Nuno, so i bought an N4 relic, what a guitar, feels very...

    In my band I stick out like a sore thumb. Singer: a Salmon Pink Fender Jaguar. Bassist: a Tobbaco burst Fender P-bass. Me: A Grape Ice RG560 I know that my guitar is awesome, I love it, but i still feel like I don't fit in with them. We just play rock like the Foo Fighters and I don't ever...

    I have a Gibson SG STD. I bought it because the neck was nice and the fingerboard on this particular one is uber sweet. It is a joy to play. I've never been very fond of the looks of the SG though. After having it about a year, it mostly stays in it's case because I've come to really be...

    Well, the Carvin finally showed. Unfortunately, I now know why it was in QA for so damn long... I appears they most likely put a fixed bridge on it and then had to go back and re-route for the floyd, because the route isn't the best fitting I've ever come across. They also didn't install the...

    I had the chance on this guitar a few weeks back in the UK but the guy was asking quite a bit more than I wanted to pay for it, anyways, it turned up on the Bay and I got it for a great deal :). It is a Caparison Horus in Iris Violet which is in mint condition.

    I just saw the video posted on the Paul Gilbert Reverse Icemans thread where PG praises his custom Reverse Icemans and a newly designed PGM301 for having thicker necks (Reverse Icemans) and a thick, old-school block neck joint (PGM301). Why? Because these thicker parts supposedly give thicker...

    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...

    Hi folks, I've been playing for two years now with an Epiphone G400. Lately I've been listening to Dream Theater, G3, Petrucci and Vai stuff so I felt the need for a new guitar. I'll probably keep the G400 (as I'll probably slap in it some DiMarzios). I'm searching for a more modern and...
