    Hi Folks, I'm about to become the proud owner of a '01 RG3120DR. Can the wizard prestige neck handle the tension created by a set of .011-.052 strings? I realize adjustments will need to be made - just want to make sure I'm not going into dangerous territory. Many thanks!

    Hi, I was wondering about something and thought perhaps you knowledgable JemSite folks could help me out :) I like to use quite heavy gauge strings, usually 12-54 in standard tuning, and so far on quite thick necks like Strats or some Jacksons I haven't had any issues, but I keep on reading...

    Mmk, well not long ago i bought a jem7v. At the time, it was a huge decision between it and pgm301. I think i can play better on the pgm, but the jem had the trem, and i need a trem. Ive got it for about a week, until i take it back to the shop to have it properly set up (they couldnt do it...

    I was out today and came across an RG550 20th Ann. model. Played it through a Genz Benz El Diablo 100 w/ a G-Flex 2x12 cab for about an hour. I really liked it, but the neck is a little wider than I expected. Seriously considering buying the one I played today. My question to anyone who has or...

    I wonder if Joe used a strat in the neck position or is he using his JS1000 in the neck position with the coil tap engauged??? VERY strat sounding to me.. He also states he uses a Peavey Classic 50 quite often in the studio. A strat and a classic 50 mabye??

    A 1991 BK Ibanez 450S. Chrome edge trem, wizard 1 neck, made in Japan. I picked this piece up today and it really feels like I'm playing a high end Ibanez. I have an S470 with the ZR trem/W II neck, and that doesn't compare to this. Here are the pics: I know I have to do some readjusting...

    I just flew home and had a brand new Caparison Horus waiting for me. It was the first time I had ever seen one in person, much less actually played one. I liked it so much that I bought another one. I just haven't ever played a guitar that felt like this Caparison before. The action was set a...

    Hey up, I know theres a few people into their fitness on here, so I'm hoping you can help me out. I'm not particularly fit, and I want to feel healthier, look a tad more buff on the arms, and have a more defined chest. I've got no experience at all with working out, and need some advice with...

    Is it true that the setup of a floyd (edge pro in this case) is related to your tuning and string gauge? I mean, of course you need to set up the springs and perhaps action again, but about the rest... Let me explain myself... I'm having a lot of tuning stability problems at this moment (whammy...

    Omg I know I ask this alot, but I really want sustain, like every pedal I have tride, just sucks, nothing will give me sustain, I went to like dimarzio, and seymour duncan, and asked them which pickup would help, and they say none will give you really long sustain. And I know there is a pickup...

    Hello there! I have my Ibanez RG2077XL coming on the way and, as I can read on this forum (wich I joined 2 days ago) the guitar has some problems with the tuning. As I was reading those topics about the guitar I was feeling like I made a bad choice buying the RG2077XL! I'm scared, because I'm...

    Ibanez has been making the 777BK since 1998. It would be nice to see some new UVs. A reissue of the PWH or MCs... How long are they going to go with the 777BK? Isn't it about time Ibanez designs a new UV? What are your thoughts on this?.........

    My custom lefty 7 string has run into 1 problem - we've had to bodge the nut as we can't find anyone that makes a left handed 7 string locking nut. At the moment we've got this 2 nut thing that's rather weird but works. Unfortunately it's affected the string spacing but it's the best we can do...
