    I just picked up two of his CDs, one being his latest, All Fired Up, and man can this guy play. I just recently heard about him. I really don't know how I missed him up to this point. I laughed when I noticed the newest CD is on Shrapnel Records. It seems I own more CDs from that company...

    Great import guitar - black, white pickguard and pickups, maple 24 fret neck. HSH configuration, one volume and one tone. Locking tuners. Has had a fret level/crown job for best action. PRS SE padded gigbag included. $175 is a STEAL for this. Pics:

    Ok...sincerely, from the bottom of my heart, I'm not trying to be a troll or to start a flame war (though that could conceivably happen anyway, I will admit)...let's just get that out of the way from the start. I seriously want to know everybody's response to this. Here's the question...is...

    I couldn't find this posted anywhere else on the boards so apologies if I'm creating a duplicate. I'm looking for a performance schedule for the summer NAMM in Nashville coming up. I can't find any info online.. many thanks ~J

    Lately I've been paying alot of attention to tone, and mostly in Rock guitar. I would really like to see some players you guys enjoy tone wise. I'm gonna list some, and I gotta say, the guy I HATE the most is Brad Gillis, worst guitar player ever, but anyway, here is my List of best tone in...

    Yesterday afternoon, I found myself a little bored so I meandered down to the local Muscian's Friend Clearance Center, to horse around on the George Lynch ESP Kamikazee guitar that my heart has fallen passionately in love with. Much less trouble than a man, I must say. While I was there I...

    Which would be the guitar for you? For me it would be a PRS, they are very versatile, top quality, sound great, & they look GREAT!

    For about the last 15 years I have heard country music fans (I am not one) say that Vince Gill is an incredible guitar player. They claim he is capable of SHREDDING with the best of em', but he just choses not to because it's not his style. Some say he is the best in the world. His wife (Amy...

    Been jamming Brad Paisley lately and was wondering if there were any other fella's out there that get into country pickin'. Vince Gill is amazing as well.

    If you haven's sat and listened to all of Resolution, the latest CD from Any Timmons yet, you're life is lacking something that won't be filled until you do. Timmons has rocketed to the top of the heap. He is EJ, Petrucci, Vai, Satch all rolled up into one killer player. Listening to the CD...

    So I've been playing for close to nine years and I seem to have picked up a bad habit in my right hand. I'm not sure how to explain it, but for any lead work that involves fast runs I kind of isolate all of the picking to the two fingers holding the pick, as opposed to making the picking come...

    Well, I've just got back from the London Guitar Show...heaving with people! I thought to start a thread for us folks who went down to the masterclasses, to share our thoughts. It was the first time I have ever seen Vai in person or heard him play live. The masterclass was more of an interview...

    So we left yesterday morning and arrived at about 12 and did some things around Nashville. At about 6, we walked from out hotel over to the Ryman Auditorium to check out the merchandise, etc. As we were walking back to the hotel, I noticed a smaller man with long hair and a G3 thing around his...

    Has anyone been and whats the best way to get Steve the sign my guitar. (Ticket wise)

    I'd always heard of Mr. Hiland and thought of him as strictly a country player. But this guy can shred, and shred tastefully as well! Watch it when he gets to 1:50! Reminds me of Shawn Lane in a way. And he's blind on top of it!

    OK guys, the "Are JEMs overrated" thread has got me thinking, I think the JEM is overpriced (in the UK anyway) but certainly not over rated, in fact I can't think of anything that's actually a better all round rock guitar. So... What do you think is the best all round rock guitar that money...

    The damn comments of how vai and satch suck and how yngwie blows them out of the water or how they have no melodies or even good music. Its just gotton on my last nerve idk y.

    Ugh...its the classic "Im stoked to play, break a string, dont have a replacement, all the shops are closed" scenario, and I think Ive had just about enough of Floyd Rose. Either Im buying a tremol-no, or the Floyd is going bye bye. Anyone here share my feelings? smitty
