    Looks like Gibson re thought the Standard and gave it some of the more popular features it probably should've had for a few years, without much or a price bump Body Wood: Chambered mahogany Top wood: Plain maple Neck Joint: Set-in Neck Wood: Mahogany Fretboard: Rosewood Plek'd on Gibson...

    When you were growing up you heard one record more than any other from your parents stereo.... today, this song or record would immediately transport you back to your childhood when you heard it....you don't have to like it- or be into it- you may think its stupid - but it's a part of your life...

    Finally got my J Custom from Rich, Yes, just as expected, it's amazing way too beautiful. I will love it forever. Only thing I dislike feel wise is that both of my E strings are a bit high. It's not terrible, but I know it could be better. I've had some experience carving bone nuts, but...

  10. Vendors, Auction & Reseller Talk
    I have a wizard neck that needs the board re-radiused and new frets installed. I would need it back in a 2-4 week time frame. Does anyone know a vendor that can do the work in that amount of time?
  11. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    So who does some really nice refret work here in the states? I had my 3120 sent to the shop for a fret lvl and they royally ****ed it up, even after I sent it back to them there denying anything is wrong with it (they just don't want to admit they can't work on leftys), even though its buzzing...

    I'm looking for something rhythm oriented with a real groove to it, something quick and centered around a major key. Preferably something with a lot of room for experimentation and improvisation.

    I realise that it's all down to opinion, but I thought it would be interesting to see who fellow Jemsiters think is the best guitarist ever. My vote is for Steve Vai... ( I think he will be a popular choice:)) What do YOU think? Rock on!

    Well, I've been setting up my newly purchased RG770FM, but I'm encountering some fretbuzz problems at the 1st (and on one string, the 2nd) fret. I usually like about .4mm of relief, but to get rid of this, I have to go to about .7. It's not a nut height issue, and my action is the same on my...
  18. Gear, Equipment, Recording & Off Topic
    Who's tone are you most trying to emulate? I'd say I'm going for a cross between Andy Timmons and Brad Gillis. I've already found that the Vai tone doesn't work well with my style of playing. Petrucci's tone is just too elusive. Besides, I'm not sure it would work well for me. But I hear...
  19. Pickups & wiring
    Hi folks, since we all post on a forum where alot of people seem to like dimarzio, or have a preference of them over other brands (thats the sorta vibe i've gotten in my time here) i would like to hear peoples oppinons on these pickups and to give thier reasons why they like or dislike them...
