    http://www.made-in-china.com/showroom/bobostarxd/product-list/catalog-1.html These look good at first glance. The auction site must be full of them passing as real. I've been looking at Gibsons on the bay. It's a little scary to think I could end up with one of these by accident.

    After a 4 month wait I got my Suhr Standard. This thing is so amazing. Resonant, articulate, and put together perfectly. It was worth the gear I sold to get it. :) I have to recommend them as the craftsmanship is just stellar. With a flash One of that beautiful scraped binding...

    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...

    Does anyone know a shop who makes such a neck? A 22 Fret Maple neck with maple fretboard, wizard I specs, square heel (non aanj) is what I'm looking for. I asked Christopher Woods and he doesn't make them, yet. Does anyone know of a place?

    I live on Long Island, NY, about 45 minutes from Paradise Guiitars USA. I decided to go to their factory because after seeing the guitars on their website, I wanted one. Well I have to say. I was really impressed with those guys. I mean for musicians, as we all know, most of us are hard to deal...

    All is not an option, must get rid of one or two.

    Review: Two words “Freakin Sweet!” This guitar has a superb finish, it’s hard to capture the blue sheen over green finish well on camera. Very unique. I like the carve on the top and contours on the bouts. Nice headstock design, a lot of body around the bridge which gives a different look than...

    Hi all. I recently dropped my 777DY and the body has snapped from neck joint to the bottom strap holder straight through the right hand trem post. In other words snapped in half! Which I'm a bit sad about, however, I have accidental insurance cover and the insurance company are happy to provide...

    Definitely looks like they build some nice guitars, but found this to be a little silly: "Our famous Paradise "Angel-Grip" adds that extra touch of style and versatility."

    I was in Germany and at Hamburg Airport I was flicking through a few guitar magazines and one of them was reviewing some beautiful natural-finished flametop, two humbucker, 4+2 headstock, fixed bridge guitar, by some strange named brand. I found memorizing the name of the brand didn't help me...

    Hi guys. It's been a long time coming (since October), but I finally received my swirl JEM from Herc today! The neck hasn't arrived yet (weird USPS) but I'll post pics of it when it arrives. All I can say is that all the rumors about swirl photos are true in this case. This thing is AWESOME...

    So, I've been told that Herman Li is working on a signature model with Ibanez (Apparently he said he is in a magazine). I thought it was all BS until I saw this. Now, thats pretty much the ultimate S IMO. ZR trem, 24 frets, Most Likely Mohagany body, and hopefully a wizard neck (wishfull...

    a semi-famous guitar player here in brazil, used to play a RG350, then someone offered him a 7V, no cash or or other equipament involved in the trade. The guy was informed that the 7V would be a chibanez, but didnt care. The overall quality of those copies are getting better and better. Here's...
