    Ideally I'd keep this guitar, but having just spent a fortune on a new Tele I need to recoup some cash so it's up for sale. This is a bit of a rare beast. It's a Gibson '61 reissue SG with a factory fitted Maestro Vibrola. Usually the only way you can get an SG with a Vibrola from Gibson is...

    The whole point of this is to have an arsenal of different sounds just like any other guitarist. I understand that what I'm doing, might seem impractical, but I've decided that it's what I want to do. Okay, here's what I wanna do. It involves buying 2 RG-350DXWHs and one RG-350EX, since I like...

    I know a few people around here are into Les Pauls. Anyone care to discuss them? Don't get me wrong, I love Jems/UV's as much as anyone, but I think I have my fair share of em, and I have been gassing for a good LP for some time now. Let's start out with your LP's please post pics and stories...

    I just went to the guitar show in Chicago and ran into a custom builder that goes by abyss guitars. His custom work was just stunning!!! His inlay skills are incredible. He's expensive I think? As I dont know how much custom guitars normally go for his start at $5500 and go to about $15000. If...

    Hi Folks, I have a bit of a weird problem that started a few days ago. Whenever I go to play an E note at the 12th fret on the high E-string, it sounds dead (along with fret buzz). All of the other notes in the surrounding area sound perfect. The strings are about 6 months old, and I haven't...

    Does anyone know where I could buy some neon green material for a custom 7string inlay? I'm looking into having my RG7620 neck redone with neon green dot inlays, but I don't know what type of material I could use for such a project. The goal is to create a similar UV neck I saw on this site...

    I don't know why, but I expected someone else to be there at the end of the auction. Trying to snipe it along side me. But ... nothing! I was the only one. I got the guitar for it's Reserve Price, and I ain't mad at nobody for it. So, thank you guys! Perhaps most of you were put-off...

    yeah, sorry guys, but I just got an S520EX on a fantastic deal, the thing is, I HATE the inlay at the 12th fret, everything else is pretty much what I was after (fpr the price anyway..), I was just wondering, would it be possible to change necks without a whole lot of hassle and expense? where...

    Hi to all. Few days ago I broke my 8270 neck during a gig. (somebody came on the scene and throwed me on the public... I felt on the neck, my 160lbs was stronger than the trussbar) It was almost split into 2 parts. I gave it to my local luthier but he told me that only 2 choise are possible: -...

    I'm thinking of having a custom guitar built for me - nothing too radical other than some odd switching. Dimarzio HSH, 22 jumbo frets, quilt maple top over alder, maple neck and board, recessed Floyd, body shape either strat or tele-ish. I'd like rear-routed controls - a Les Paul style toggle...

    Well I was planning on taking one of my old RGs to band rehearsal this week to give it an airing. I've not really played it since I bought it a while back, and I tried to set it up tonight. After slackening off the truss rod to get some relief in the neck (there was none) I found this problem...
