    While at GC today, I played a $2099 Suhr Tele. Then playd a $149 Squire Tele. The diffenece? A whole bunch of money. That's it. The tone was a little different. But not $1800 different. Not even different enough for the average person to notice. And get this. The Squire was set up and...

    What's the more valuable guitar? PRS 20th without 20th birds in flight pattern, but with a nice flame 10 top. PRS 20th with 20th birds in flight pattern, but regular NON-10 top quilt. ?

    http://www.blackmachine.net/ New stripped down versions, still with all the quality control etc, but cheaper! Also you get a choice of lundgrens, dimarzios or bareknuckles among other pickups. (and before anyone complains about the price in dollars, well, we get shafted in reverse on...

    Aight guys, I have an RG3670e VSL Prestige now, and selling it so I can get a higher end prestige. I think maximum I would spend New would be 1300(USD). What do you suggest? I love locking tremolo's but my favorite guitarist is paul gilbert and his signature model is hardtail.:-( still...

    can this be done without removing the neck?? I have a gibson explorer in absolutely horrible condition. I stripped the body and did a wood burning design in the front and tongue oiled over it. terrible original job. but i wanted to know if i could plane down maybe 1/8th inch and retop it...

    I'm selling my Gibson EDS 1275 and Ibanez RG550 20th anniversery to fund a Carvin DC127. I have 3 questions that you guys can hopefully answer. 1) What's the difference between their "matte satin" and "tung oil" finishes? 2) Since the guitar is neck-thru, will having a maple neck make it sound...

    I've had this guitar for 3 weeks and now I have decided it's just not for me, it's totally mint, not a mark on it, the guitar is virtually brand new, it still has the registry and warranty forms with it also. I'm based in Hartlepool, the North East of England and i would prefer pick up on this...

    I got my Carvin DC727C yesterday, and let me tell you, this thing is monstrous! My sound was pretty ballsy with my Epiphone Goth Explorer + Seymour Duncans, strung with baritone strings, but with this baby, my tone just got a whole new pair of balls. Anyhow, onwards with pictures!

    How comes ibanez no longer uses ebony for the j-customs and how comes they no longer use this construction style and no longer put this writing on the back of the headstock: i thought that wood construction gave it an extra touch of class and further distinguished it from the prestige line...

    Well, it just came in (#015/200) and let me tell you; just looking at it is amazing!!!!! I'll post some pics later tonight, but this guitar is sooooooo cool in person. Take those statements for what it's worth... I've had JEM7VWH, JS10th and JS1IR/1000's in the past, and this guitar definately...

    I was just wondering if any RGA121's have the brown (walnut I think) overlay on the headstock? I know a lot of them don't, but I think I once saw a few that did... is it a certain color finish that has the headstock overlay or a certain year of production or something? I could've sworn I saw a...

    I took my RG7CT out recently and put some new strings on her, and I almost forgot how awesome this thing is. I personally think it is the best 7 string model Ibanez ever made. I like the fact that it has a rosewood board with offset dots, and I would rather not have a piezo trem to fight with...

    Not sure if there is/was a thread like this, but I figure it couldn't hurt to have a wish list. I would've liked something along the lines of an Evo "Relic". Everything that makes Evo what it is (Aside from the large crack in the body), for any and all to have. Probably would've been a lot...

    I'm in the market for a new guitar at the moment and I came across the RGA321 which is within my budget and looks perfect (minus the pickups). However, i'm trying to identify if its the same one I saw in this video: http://www.gearwire.com/ibanez-rg-archtop.html It fits the description, but the...

    This picture is NOT the JEM77VBK. Scroll down for the actual pic. Now imagine that with the gold all the same hue, or the vine possibly being white/pearloid. I designed that a while ago and was wondering if anyone knew anything else about the looks of the new regular prodection JEM.

    So lets say that after a gig an Ibanez rep comes up to you and says that Ibanez will sponsor you, but will only build one guitar for now. What would you get? I would probably go for a 7 string RG ART.
