    I really haven't found much backup on this, just here and there. Understanding this forum may be biased towards Ibanez, I would still like all opinions of superstrat type guitars and how they compare sonicaly and as far as quality (and visually if interested). Which guitars I have in my mind...

    Mostly a stat guy - haven't played much lately but I wanted to get something to play in basement,jam w/friends, and back up my prs 24 and am strat. I'm more of a classic rock blues guy but loved the neck on the 2550 and liked the H/S/H versatility. ordered one from MF for $750 in white. how...

    I was in a store yesterday and picked up a 2610 to play. I was playing it for a few minutes, then looked at the tag - let's just say, it's on clearance! Obviously, it's a left-over '07 but I looked it over, expecting it to be beat to hell, but it's not. It's like new, no dings, chips, gouges...

    I thought this would be a funny thread. I just spent an hour trying to remember everything i had and what i still have. It's bad, i have a horrible memory. It runs in the family. Also, i have a large collection at my young age. However, i thought i'd be worth a few yucks if everyone shared a...

    I have a Tele body blank which I'm currently deciding what electrics to put into it and I'm thinking about should I just have a volume and pup selector and forget about the tone control completely I very rarely use the tone controls on any of my guitars so I was just wondering what you guys...

    How does it sound. Is it more tighter and less dark than... basswood? I see everyone seems to love it in basswood, but also a lot of mixed responses. I do like the mids, but I think it could use a liiiiittle bit less bass. what wood do you think tone zone is best in of mahogany/basswood/alder...

    Hey guys. I am new to the board. It is cool to be here. I have played ibanez guitars off and on since 1986 with my first roadstar II. Anyway...for the last 6 years I have played a RG2020XTB and I love it. Has been my staple tone. It has Dimarzio Steve's Special(B) and Air Norton(n). I...

    I've tried to search the fourm but with no luck. I think this is a great idea and I'd like to put together a few custom guitars for bashing around on stage. My partner is a graphic designer and when I mentioned this vinyl sticker idea to her she thought it was perfect for what we're planning...

    I'm selling off a few of my Ibanezes, and I'm looking for a good USED guitar under the $1200 range. It has to have a locking tremolo, rosewood board, HH or HSH configuration. 24 frets is not a must, but would be preferred. Any guitars to look out for? Charvel? Kramer? etc, etc

    Im considering two new guitars here: The American Special Mahogany-bodied HSS Strat and The American Deluxe HSS Strat. The first has (of course) a mahogany body, and the second (of course) has an alder body. Both will have (of course) maple necks, and rosewood fretboards. The stock bridge...
  11. Pickups & wiring
    I bought this guitar a few months ago and I love the neck pickup but the bridge pickup is not bright enough and lacks sustain that I am used to. I primarily play two other guitars one is a strat with a Seymour Duncan Hotrail in the bridge position and the other guitar is a PRS custom 24 which...

    Except for the JEM series, they're the only Ibanezes that I've played and liked. But I don't know... other than that I haven't played an Ibanez I've liked. Maybe it's just me.

    Well, I walked in my local shop today, and low and behold there was one of the new EVH Frankenstrat replicas. I about collapsed when I saw the pricetag though...$25,000! Regardless, it was probably one of the best playing guitars I've ever touched, surprisingly. Forget all the little details...

    Been wanting to tackle one of these for a while and a few weeks back i decided to go for it. There are a *few* things I do not like about it, with the neck being one of them, but all in all I do not think it turned out too badly. The body was cut and sanded by hand. No CNC machine. The neck...

    can anyone tell me about the super 3 vs the tone zone?
  16. Off-topic / Miscellaneous
    Seen this in a guys signature at talkbass thought it was funny, apparently were not the only Ed lovers out there. "I said it once before: I don't care if his basses play like liquid Jesus dipped in butter and greased with lightning sauce, there's simply no excuse for dealing with Ed Roman"
  17. All Other Guitars (including Prestige)
    Hey guys, I just wanted some thoughts on some guitars I'm thinking of getting. First would be something like a early 80's Kramer focus 3000/2000 or similar. The other i'm thinking would be older Charvel model 375 or something similar from them. Anybody have any experience or thoughts on...

    Hey Guys, I have always liked the 1980's Kramer American guitars and was lucky enough to pick up a neck through 1987 Kramer Liberty 86 American of which just a few where ever made and are considered as the "Holy Grail" of the American made Kramers. This one is supposed to be mint and stored...

    Right....since it's getting VERY CLOSE to the end of the year (already), I thought I'd start a thread where we can all share our aromatic experiences:) This years been a bit gassy! Even though I was unemployed for nearly 4 months! Okay.......in March, I saw a deal for a Korg D3200. Musicians...

    I'm going to place an order within the next few hours on a green Air Norton for my RG750. I had decided on the AN/TZ combination, but now i'm not so sure on the Tone Zone. From the samples on the Dimarzio site, i also like the Breed and the FRED. I'm definitely getting the AN ( love the sound of...
