    I am going to thin the heard a little, just for a bit of a change….Some don't get played anymore, some I have more than one of…… some I'm not very keen to let go at all!!! But before I fully decide what are staying and what are going, I will put some stuff up for trade to see...

    It finally arrived a few days ago. I love the top on this and the Aldrich pups sound very nice :) However, it arrived with the set-up totally messed up. Probably put that down to it happening during shipping. So whilst setting it up, I try to adjust the truss rod. But couldn't get the wrench to...

    Just asking...the finish on that jam seems to be a bit susceptible. I was wondering about the stability of the neck in particular. Thanks.

    So I've decided to get a third custom guitar made (already have 2 soloist-style axes). I've narrowed it down to these 2 choices: Ken Lawrence-type explorer, all exotic woods, neck thru, 24 frets, string thru body. Something like this...

    After playing Strats and Pauls, I finally pulled a trigger on this Ibanez RGT220H SOL. I am floored. I didn't expect a decent Ibanez could be THAT good of a guitar. The thing plays itself, and after sailing the oceans for 5 (!! that's FIVE) months it arrived in TUNE.

    They seem really well priced at appr. $1500 and I was wondering if anyone has played one? How do they compare to other Les Pauls and why are they priced so much cheaper? Is there a catch I can not see?

    My son is considering a new guitar, weve looked at either a les paul or He likes the shecter ZV special. I have to say for the specs, it is alot better than the gibson, just doesnt have the name. He already has a custom RG with a floyd and EMG's, he wanted a versatile hardtail, With seymour...

    I have always wanted a VWH and/or VSBL, and a EBJPM. But, is it a deterrent? Can one be taken seriously if they play a signature series guitar? The reason why it is such a tough debate for myself, is I have rarely ever found guitars that play with such ease as a JEM/JPM. The feel of the neck...

    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...

    Only took me a couple of minutes and a few seconds, six to be exact. Easy

    Does anyone find that certain kinds of bridge make fast playing easier/more comfortable than other kinds do? It comes after noticing that I can't get the same kind of picking speed out of a hardtail that I can on a Floyd Rose or similar locking system. Has anyone else had this experience?
  12. Pickups & wiring
    In the coming week I'm upgrading the pups on my RG1570 (Evo2 + Evo), and I wanted to know whether an electronics upgrade will aid in bringing out the true character of the new pups. Or are the Prestige guitars already equipped with a set of quality components? On reading other threads, am I...

    So a friend of mine decided that he wanted me to install a set of EMG's (81/85) in his brand spankin' new SG standard. The install went very well and the thing sounded amazing. A week later, he saw a guy playing an SG just like his, just with the stock pickups... So he asked me to put the old...

    OK, I bought a couple of 540R during the last couple of years. One of them was transformed into a Donnie, the other one was kept a radius, but an alien radius... so even though its not really a JS, it's definately the guitar that the nemesis of the silver surfer would play ;) Here is a video of...

    Hi Guys, I just bought a new old stock(NOS) 2005 Jem BRMR. Plays Great. Sounds Great. Looks Great. It costed approximately $1700 USD. But for some reason it came with a "Ibanez Trem Stopper". My 05 7vwh never came with one of these and I never heard anything about it coming with JEMs...

    heh, I've just lost all respect for Gene Simmons (KISS). In an interview I'm watching atm he just said (and I paraphrase), "...there is no record industry, it's done, it's dead. The people who it was for have killed it by downloading. It's sad, the record labels have no more money. The saddest...
