    Okay, I bought this for the ubiquitous Jem project and then got a deal on a different guitar so ended up abandoning this one. It plays well, but could use a new set of strings and some fret board conditioner. Frets are in great shape, tons of life left. Its a Made in Japan RG 570 in sparkel...

    Not really, I was at a local watering hole last night and the Sprint Cup was on TV and I think I saw the new theme for one of my Jem projects. I have been on the fence as to what colors to go with or possibly a swirl for this project. After seeing Gordon smash into the wall last night it hit me...

    Hi, I've heard that a nitrocellulose finish on your guitar, lets your wood 'breathe', but it feels 'sticky'. A polyurethane finish, they say, is the opposite in both respects. Which would have a negative impact on the sound, to a degree, because the wood resonates less as it's not allowed to...

    I searched for this and didn't find it, sorry if it is covered somewhere. How many have gotten custom Jem bodies from Sims to build Jem projects with rather than routing/ refinishing old RG or jem bodies? If you did get one, did it fit like an Ibanez part or did it need work to go together...

    I have a 7vwh in Tennessee in what I call Excellent condition. This guitar plays incredible and the action is sweet. Hardly any wear on the Gold hardware, all original equipment with no mods. Only one very, very small chip in the paint on the top backside of the upper horn. The backplate...
