    I'm about to purchase a Suhr Modern Satin: http://www.suhr.com/modern-satin-ms-ns-f-hh.html I'm leaning toward the one with the locking trem, which is the Original Floyd Rose. I know there's already other threads on this topic, but I wanted to see what you guys thought about the effect on tone...

    Hey all, Looking for any lefty guitar with both a double-locking trem and some sort of sustainer. Schecter has the Syn custom, but I'm not big enough an Avenged Sevenfold fan (nor really one at all) to justify spending that kind of money on an artist model for literally one reason: infinite...

    Hi folks - I usually string my RG550 with 10s but I also have an Ibanez AS103nt semi that I recently tried 11s on and really like the tone of the thicker strings and didn't find that guitar too much more difficult to play. I'm considering switching to 11s on all my electrics but as I like...

    Got a Washburn WG580 at my local guitar center, and now I'm fixing it up. The trem is the biggest problem, so it comes first. First off, there's some rust and white stuff on the saddles, and the D string saddle is buzzing. And there's also white stuff elsewhere on the trem, no clue what it...

    i just picked up a used 1996 hamer slammer series diablo with a licensed floyd rose. one problem though, the FLOYD WONT STAY IN TUNE! i've ruled out that it's nut a locking nut problem, i've stretched the strings, i've made the bridge is parallel to the body, it still simply wont stay in tune...

    This is my Yamaha RGX Standard: Here's a video of me playing it, so you can see and hear it in action: It's a great guitar in its own right, but for me it's just the umpteenth Superstrat, and I want something different. So if I can make someone happy with it, who'll actually play it...

    I've all but ordered an Ibanez SV5470F as a "first guitar". I've already got an Ibanez PUE5 tube version multi-effects pedals. I want a good practice amp to go along with them. I have looked at several different options, but it seems a lot of the cheaper solid state amps don't have an effects...

    The bug has bit me again. I tried several years ago to learn how to play a guitar. In '91 I was given a new blue s540fm for my birthday. I was in school and really wanted a computer, but I had to choose between sending that back to get a computer or giving up on part of my education. I chose...

    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...

    Hi, I am a new member from the Philippines. My name is Jolo, and I am entering my first year in college this June. In late December of the past year, I was able to purchase a brand new RG350EX from a local music store. It was my first locking tremolo guitar and I researched about the properties...

    If I were to just drop the E to a D, thus having D A D G B E on an Edge Pro Double Locking Tremolo, what steps would I have to take? I am assuming then I have to readjust the cavity springs for the Tremolo angle but if its just temporary would I get away with not readjusting it if I dont might...

    ok, i would like to know what a single locking floyd style trem is. i have a floyd rose II that doesnt lock at the bridge, only at the nut. is this all they are because i have seen in ibanez catalogs guitars equipped with single locking bridges but it looks like the lock at the bridge.

    Hi, For many years I've been playing my Yamaha with a Wilkinson. I've removed the bar, so I don't use the unit for vibrato. But I'm getting another guitar now, which will be my main guitar, and it will have a Floyd Rose unit. It allows me to play more expressive, I find. So I thought I'd post...
