    I've been playing Ibanez electrics for 5 years now, but I'm looking to get my first acoustic guitar. I've always loved the Ovation sound (and look!), but I played one a few months ago and found the neck very...strange. Especially coming from my 7 string Ibanez, the neck felt tiny (thin). I like...
  2. Classified Ads: Ibanez JEM/UV Guitars
    I have been doing a lot of perusing on this site and I have discovered more than enough guitars that I want more than this JEM(although i do love the sound and action). I would like 2300 since it is no more than a week old I recently and I mean recently just picked it up from a local guitar...

    Seriously... Last week I got the craziest bout of GAS. I just wanted to buy something, I didn't particularly care what. I found myself, a lifelong strat player and tube snob, posting threads over at sevenstring.org asking for opinions on the Epi LP7's and the PodXT just for a late night...

    Don't know if this is old news or not, but I've only just heard that the RG770DX is going to be reissued. Advert here: http://www.andertons.co.uk/acatalog/info_RG770DXRR.html I'm sure they'll be popular, but look how much they are charging!

    I just bought a JS1200CA. Nearly new and almost mint. Came with an Ibanez MC100 guitar case. Does anybody know if the Ibanez cases with the red lining are available in the UK? Pete

    That video is hilarious :lol: My friend sent it to me because Batio is coming to my local guitar shop on the 28th and my friend is bringing me along. I hope I don't start laughing while Batio tries to be serious :lol: does anyone here like him? I haven't really listened to his stuff because his...

    I started writing this long, long ago but I never finished it. It has been sat on my hard drive for ages, but I figured someone somewhere might benefit from this information. So here it is... incomplete, but probably quite useful? I don't know. Maybe I'll finish it one day. STRING TENSION...

    Hello, do any of you guys have any ideas/tips/suggestions on teaching guitar as a profession? There are probabrly loads of little things that need to be considered so can any of you suggest anything? I'm guessing you need to get registered, and then have some sort of criminal disclosure...

    I looked on GAK on friday as they said they'd have some listings down early feb due to all the NAMM stuff, they had no BC Rich gunslinger retro as of yet but back to my point; I check Ibanez and was pleased to see they have the "JTK3" and "JTK4" as well as the new FR models (at stupidly high...

    Hi, I received my second guitar this week since the old one was a second hand strat copy, I thought it was time for a step up. When I first got it I was tuning it at the head stock and snapped the top string(I was slightly embaressed when he asked me if I knew you dont tune it there), there...

    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 went to a few local guitar shops looking to buy a decent acoustic, and while checking out a few I mentioned that i quite liked the look of the Euphoria acoustic, but it was too expensive. the shop owner went round a corner and pulled this baby out :) Because it had been in the shop for a...

    Hey. I got an RG1570 lately from my local guitar shop and I loved it as soon as I picked it up. The guy is the store knew what he was doing when he set it up! I've been playing guitar now for about 4/5 years but I've only had one guitar during that space of time, and it didn't have a double...

    I've never been the kind of guy that could do any kind of woodwork or wiring. I can play guitars but I absolutely can't build them or do any kind of painting or finishing. And as for wiring, um, me and soldering irons don't get along well. Fortunately, my wife,(Melinda) is great at all this...

    I don't read a lot of guitar magazines, and mostly because there aren't many available in my area, but I do pick up Guitar World occasionally (lately every other month or so if there's something that interests me). Anyway one thing that I've been noticing the last few months is whether its in...
