    Hey guys, first post here but i have been reading these forums for a while. :) Anyway, my situation is a bit wierd. My first Ibanez guitar after 8 years of playing was the S prestige 2170se. I admit i was pretty ignorant of how Ibanez worked and i figured it was an expensive Ibanez that said it...

    It finally arrived a few days ago. I love the top on this and the Aldrich pups sound very nice :) However, it arrived with the set-up totally messed up. Probably put that down to it happening during shipping. So whilst setting it up, I try to adjust the truss rod. But couldn't get the wrench to...

    http://saltlakecity.craigslist.org/msg/674623130.html I might buy it if it is Japanese. I am in touch with the local guy. He knows little about it and I won't get to see it for a few days. I know there is an expert here because you all helped me find an RG470 which I still love. Any help at...

    So I've decided to get a third custom guitar made (already have 2 soloist-style axes). I've narrowed it down to these 2 choices: Ken Lawrence-type explorer, all exotic woods, neck thru, 24 frets, string thru body. Something like this...

    Up for sale is a Ibanez Radius. Hard to say what model it is. It looks to be a 540R thou with a USA Custom Neck. The 540R series didn't come with that neck nor the Ibanez pick-ups that are in it. The pick-ups are HB2 (Bridge), SS1 (Middle), and SS2 (Neck). The history of this guitar is...

    I took apart my first ever guitar the other day, a Strat imitation, and I want to tweak it up a bit because I love the thing :') I won't bore you with my ideas, instead I'll jump to the point: Am I able to get a nice JEM maple neck onto my Strat style body without having to do extra routing...

    Did the USA Custom shop ever make any of those? I have been looking for a cool radius model for a while and got one on the way. Has a USA Custom logo on the head stock. Regardless I dig the guitar.

    Im planning on doing a Strat build.. with a carvin neck. Looking for a quilted top body.. I came to thinking, would an S body fit? I recall hearing that the neck pocket of the RG's matchs a fender neck, altho obviously with frets it wouldnt work.. but since S's are 22 frets anyways..?? Anyone...

    Hey guys, I was wondering if you have ever played them or seen any custom guitar luthiers that make them. I just recently learned about the wonders of Greg Howe's fusion playing and when I saw this guitar I knew I had to have it hah

    I have a Jackson DR2 body, it is poplar and made in the USA. It has a 22 fret neck that I don't like the radius, 12" and shape, thin c. I was thinking of ordering a Musikraft neck with a 16" radius, 1 11/16 nut and thin D shape. I hope this will be close to a Wizard 2 neck feel. What do think?

I am looking for advice from anyone who has modified their Proline with a newer Trem. I have a 1985 Proline 1440. It's in great shape and after owning it for 15 years, it has some...
