    I have a MIK RG270DX that I've thinking of selling to buy a different guitar a little more suited to my current playing style. This one is from back in 1997. The body is in great shape with only some minor light scratching around the pickups. I've swapped out the pups with a set of Seymour...

    I have recently switched from using fixed-bridge guitars to a double-locking edge-pro system.. I've just bought an RG2570E and have come across a slight problem with "unison bends".. say for example I'm bending the E note on the G string (fret 9) upto an F# (fret 11), and playing an F# (fret 7)...

    Someone told me today that by using my low E fine tuner to drop me E to Drop D that this will be hard on the floyd. Is that just a bunch of BS or is there something to that, haven't had my floyd equipped guitar long and still sorting the myths from truths. If anyone knows I'd appreciate it...

    After being on this site for many years and never thought of owning a Jem, I am now a proud owner of an '89 JEM777VBK (since I didn't win a JEM7VBK on the last contest :P). Scored it from a guy who lives < 5 miles (@ 8km)from me on friday. We met up half-way on thursday so I could check out the...

    I have a brand new unused Tremol-No still in the package that I will trade even for a brand new unused still in the package Hipshot Tremsetter. The Tremol-no cost a bit more than the Hipshot tremsetter so you will be making out money wise. The Tremol-No at www.allparts.com is $65 and the...
