I have 2 rg470s that have served me pretty well gigging. I use the whammy bar extensively and experience lack of trem tunining stability.
So, I researched this forum (thank you to all) and other sources extensively; I considered 1570s, 2570s, and 8570s, and so far, I've bought on 570. I've...
Just wondering if there are any Carvin fans in here? I think they make some of the best quality guitars and especially necks around. To this day my Bolt Plus guitar has the best playing/feeling neck i`ve ever seen. Any love for Carvin?
While at GC today, I played a $2099 Suhr Tele. Then playd a $149 Squire Tele. The diffenece? A whole bunch of money. That's it. The tone was a little different. But not $1800 different. Not even different enough for the average person to notice. And get this. The Squire was set up and...
hi! (excuse me my english... I hope that you can understand me)
Now that my guitars projects are near to end, I have a question:
It is about put or not put Ibanez logo decals on the headstocks... :confused:
All my projects have one or more parts from original Ibanez... may be the neck (but...
I watched a demo off a new tremolo which wont get out of tune, even if a string breaks. They called it StepMax. Anyone tried it?
I need to get a replacement floyd rose bridge for my guitar.
Can anybody recommend a store where i can get one?

NOTE I AM A NOVICE GUITAR PLAYER AND AM JUST SEEKING INFORMATION FROM MORE SEASONED PLAYERS SO I CAN UNDERSTAND THE BENEFITS OF A FLOYD ROSE. ARE THERE ANY? THANK YOU.
BASED ON MY NOVICE LEVEL HERE ARE MY THOUGHTS: Coming from a newbie- I know some of you guys swear by them but I don’t get why...
For many years I've been playing my Yamaha with a Wilkinson. I've removed the bar, so I don't use the unit for vibrato. But I'm getting another guitar now, which will be my main guitar, and it will have a Floyd Rose unit. It allows me to play more expressive, I find.
So I thought I'd post...
So I watched some old Jason Becker videos and noticed him shredding away on some Charvel guitars and I was wondering...
What can you tell me about Charvel-Jackson guitars built any time between 1985 to 1989? I'm referring to the Model series (i.e. Models 1 through 6) - specifically, I'd like to...
I just went through the second edge trem bar, snapped the same as the first time right where the bar gets smaller for the bushings.
Does anybody else have this problem? It's seems like a flaw in the bar design to me.
I have other bars that "fit" and I can use those. I don't think I'll be...
I seem to recall that this question has been addressed here in the past, but I'm having zero luck with a forum search, so I'll go ahead and ask.
I have a 540R with an original Edge trem. As most of you know, on the Edge the fine tuners are situated more on top of the trem than on the...
Here's a few pics of my newest one...just arrived today. The top end
Peavey V Type. Not a single scratch on this one.......absolutely perfect
The one thing that jumps out at me about this one is the neck.
Very similar to a Les Paul.
I see pics of everybody's nice Carvins floating around every so often, but I think a go-to thread for guitar-porn sounds great.
Sadly, I have no pics to contribute...yet, but let's try in say 3 months and I'll have one....:D
But in the meantime, let's see those Carvins!
PS: Someone buy...
Hi all. I hope that someone can help me gather some information about a guitar I have recently been given.
A friend told me some time ago that he had an “old guitar” up in his loft and that he would let me take a look and if I liked it, I could have it.
It turned out to be an Ibanez...
