    I'm currently working on a project that involves a Mexican strat I had lying around the house the past 5 years. I'm a huge fan of Yngwie Malmsteen, but I wanted to do something a little different with my guitar. The original version of this particular guitar had the YJM and HS-3 pickups, but I...

    Hey everyone, I'm in need of some help from those of you who know a lot about Fender.

    About 7 years ago (a few years before Trader ratings), I traded a RG570 for a RG550 with another jemsiter. We were supposed to ship our guitars on a specified day and trade tracking number e-mails. My end went smooth. The other guy had a problem getting to the shipping center that day because of...

    Hi, I have an absolutely mint RGT3120TV, you will not find a cleaner example anywhere it really is pristine! The thing is I'm not that used to the ultra neck and I'm finding it a bit much for me.

    Just thought I would share how crazy my cat Endo is when it comes to being in my direct presence 24 hours a day. We rescued him from a friend not knowing he was a true Russian Blue which are one of the most "people attached" of all the breeds. For some strange reason he takes a liking to me...
