    Cids about to get a new guitar. I have it down to 2 choices. 1) Gibson Explorer in Natural 2) One of those Carvin LP clones I had an explorer before and loved it, but Im currently without a Les Paul. The Explorer is a lot cheaper, the Carvin is just out of my budget but with some creative...

    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 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...

    This really could be a thread about a few topics, but mainly I'd like to know how to get my high frets fixed on my new RG350 DX. I'm not all that upset about it, just need to know what common practice is for fixing high frets. The 8th fret is high enough that it completely chokes playing the...

    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?

    I was learning some paul gilbert exercises the other day, and I noticed that I get buzz above about the 16th fret, and my accuracy sucks (more than usual, I always end up hitting the next door notes). This is on my RG570 by the way. And my GRG170 seems to play better up there. I've discovered...

    http://www.swingguitars.com/ Excellent models and workmanship made in the land of Kimchi! anybody tried the EZ10HT yet? looks delicious but the specs are rather disappointing.. well..its sure bang for buck at that price! Just wanna get more ideas before it lands here the rest of the higher...

    I quite like the idea of getting one of these guitars (my bank balance begs to differ!) but I want to get an idea what the neck thickness is like as no local shop stocks them. The Ibanez site gives dimensions and it gives the impression that its about the same as a Jem7vh infact a little...

    Hello. I have always loved the Ibanez S3040PL, but as many of you know, it is extremely rare. So, I went to RAN guitars custom order page (www.ranguitars.com) and made a guitar. It is extremely similar to the S3040, except it is neck thru, 24 frets, features red LEDs, and has an original floyd...

    Greetings I've owned Ibanez since 1988, on & off. I've had an RG570, RG560, a Floral JEM (yum!), original Vai JEM in Loch Nes Green or whatever they called it back then, & others. I got out of Ibanez for awhile. But when I saw the RGA series I wanted another one. So I ordered an RGA121 vintage...

    I've only been playing an Ibanez guitar for 3 months now, so I'm not quite familiar with all the quirks inherent to Ibanez guitars. I love the feel of the neck, and the style and weight of the body, I still prefer my ESP's feel though. If I can make the RG feel more like the ESP (Or dare I say...

    Okay, so I guess it's time to start an official thread. My IbanED one has been temporarily disconnected. As some of you know I build Replacement Bodies and Necks for Jem and RG bodies. Legacy One started because I know how frustrating it is to have to wait for custom build parts. Watching...

    I've been thinking recently about a few myths that surround guitarists and their type and I think there is a pretty good debate for each of them. Right now though in this thread, one of these myths springs to mind and that is when a guitar has a "Fast neck." Most people think that a thin and...

    Lefty Robb was saying these are sought after instruments, I'm certainly not gonna say they're not, BUT I am curious to guage the opinion of folks here... Edit - Now with actual poll ;)

    My initial impression......worth $199 and a bit more. First, it's made in Indonesia. I was really expecting it to be Chinese (despite MusicYo listing it as a US series.....hmmmm). Anyway......the guitar is much darker than it appears in the photos on the site. Plugged it in and it sounds...
