    Hey y'all. I've been in the market for a single pickup, strat style guitar recently, and was wondering if any of you could suggest some to me. This is kind of what I'm looking for. That's a G&L Rampage. I've been looking for one of those bad boys for YEARS, to no avail. Jerry Cantrell has...

    I will report back in a little while, but for right now, I will leave you all with some pictures. The pictures aren't so great since this is even harder to photograph than I thought. It DOESN'T get any more dirty than any other guitar, but it just looks that way because of the finish.

    Looking to trade my player condition JS10th mainly for a JS90th. I PLAY my guitars so if you have a player one even better. I'm not going to be picky about pick-ups being scratched and that kind of stuff, I'm not a collector. Only reason I'm looking for a trade is beacuse I absolutely can't...

    I've decided to spill the beans! I've got a BRMR on the way and I predict that it will be here sometime late next week. I bought it from Rich (of course), and when I gave him a call, he was kind of telling me to not post pictures since it's been done many times before; maybe I shouldn't because...

    What's the general consensus on DP151s? I just took apart my old Jem5 and I saw that both the bridge and neck are 151s. To be honest, I don't really like the tone since it sounds way too dark for me, but this may be due to some other problem with the guitar instead of the pups themselves. The...

    Ok guys, the time is nearing for me to marry my 4th wife (my other 3 are sick :-P) I'd really like to try a BSB, but finding one of those in really good condition is hard to come by. I'm down to either a 77VBK or a 77BRMR. As far as I know, they're both almost exactly the same, but with a...

    I have recently went back to playing Death and Black metal, so now I need a more suitable guitar. I have a Jem DBK in near mint condition. There is no oxidation or rust on the pickup pole peices or the bridge, only a few light scratches on the guard, no dents or dings. I have been playing only...

    Anybody have this album? Is it any good? It hasn't come out in the US yet and I don't think it ever will so I figured I'd ask around and see what people thought of it before I ordered it. I was a big fan of Music For Speeding even though some folks didn't like the J-Pop stuff I thought it was...

    This dumb guitar tech that set up my jem7vwh when I first got it put some type of fretboard conditioner on the rosewood fretboard, and now it looks like ebony under most light, and to me, it just looks terrible. He did about 8 months ago and it still looks like that. Even in the grains of the...

    A few years ago I posted a thread at http://www.jemsite.com/forums/showthread.php?t=10428 (Jesus, my grammar was terrible) and I've just now started playing guitar again. This is my short story: I looked in the classified ads in the newspaper when I was 14 years old (in 1999 I think) or so and...

    Hey all, thought I would share my current project: Its a Kelly XL Pro. Got it off the bay with some body damage so I knew I was going to refinish it. My love for Marty Friedman / Megadeth Kelly era...and the Jem BFP pretty much got me here to this weird love child (BSP - blue squiggle...

I need to find a strat style string thru body bridge (as...

    firstly of alls, is a 1/4 inch flamed top too thick to bend over the forearm contour? Would it break if I tried to bend it that much? I don't have one right now, so I have no idea how pliable it is. And I know you are supposed to use steam, but not get any moisture in the center joint. Gorilla...

    Hi! I have a Jackson Kelly XL that I reworking and replacing the pickups on. When I bought it it had an X2N in the bridge and stock neck pickup. The X2N sounded decent...a little bright but the main reason I sold it was the color (black). I am refinishing the guitar and going for a baby blue...
