    Has anyone noticed that on the new 5 piece Jem/Prestige neck there is virtually no bow on the high E side - its almost dead flat even after slackeneing the truss rod, I cant work out why other than maybe its such a stiff neck as its reinforced due to the lamination. The low E side seems to get...

    Just interested in brief stories of how everyone got their first Jem or decided they wanted a Jem. I had always been a huge fan of the DLR/Vai albums and decided last year to splash out on a DY just as I was rediscovering the music that got me playing guitar in the first place. Strats, Teles...

    Here is what Ibanez has to offer us S users this next year The first would be KILLER if it didn't have • Middle pickup • Overly obnoxious binding • Wizard II neck instead of Wizard I The second would be killer if it had • Wizard 7 neck The third would be KILLER if it didn't have • Middle...

    Okay, so I guess it's time to start an official thread. My IbanED one has been temporarily disconnected. As some of you know I build Replacement Bodies and Necks for Jem and RG bodies. Legacy One started because I know how frustrating it is to have to wait for custom build parts. Watching...

    After a long deep consideration, I've decided that rosewood suits me better- I have trouble seeing where my hand position is on stage with a maple neck. Rosewood, on the other hand feels 'right', looks great, and is easier to see in low light. I love the pyramid inlays on a DY or SK, but they...

    Still completely stock with an Edge III bridge. I bought this guitar back in August and it's still in perfect condition. There are two little nicks near the bridge but it is barely noticeable. I'm asking for around 300 for it, but I am also looking to trade this as well. I am in search for some...

    Well after all MY nit-picking I finally recieved my IbanED from John (the legacy) The guitar sounds and play's fantastic! He made it into the guitar I wanted and not just something for him to build and me to buy. I went with/// Silver Maple Body Hard Rock Maple Neck (unfinished!!) 6105 Fret...

    I'm going to post up some pics of my 7's (there's only three) and figured if I didn't start the thread I'd never get around to it. So, some pics. This is the front of my Chris Woods 7, which is basically a replacement body and a 7620 neck. Dots in the fretboard are purpleheart, and headstock...

    Just a thought guys and gals - it's the anniversary of the Jem AND the RG series this year. There's lots of talk of a 20th Jem but what about a 20th RG? I'd certainly buy one if the spec and colours were good :D

    Hi Folks, I'm currently looking to buy an RG. The guy claims it is an RGR 570 P 2, has wizard 2 neck 3 piece mahony, 1993, made in Japan, price about 550$, has a little fixed dent and an scratch on the side near the straplocks. Front and back should be perfect he says. Could anyone confirm...

    I know there are few guys on here with PRS guitars, I am considering buying a custom 22, how sticky does the neck get, is it nitrocellulose ? Ta

    I really love my SBL, and I would really like to have a guitar with a *nice* maple fretboard. So I'm kicking around replacing the fretboard with maple. Here's the question, though, if I replaced the fretboard, do you think I should replace the vine inlay (with real shell if I can get it done)...

    Did ATD ever use orange in his colors on the UVMC? Ive read the archived documentation here and I dont see it mentioned. There is a tempting one on a "large auction website that shall go unnamed" that has a lot of orange on it. Is it possible that he did a few with orange, or is it possible that...

    Wassup? I noticed that Ibanez recently came out with a maple fingerboard version of the RG350 called the RG350MDX. My question is does this hint at a maple fingerboard prestige model coming soon or what? it would definitely be a welcome addition to the lineup. My dumb ass computer won't let...

    So I bought a new guitar on Saturday. The brand is Mania. I can't remember the model number. I have only seen these in one place in the flesh, although there are a few on the net. Anybody else tried one, or have any ideas of the origin? They are low priced, and I presume Chinese or Korean...

    I just bought this 777sk on the bay. I know it needs some help...just like the DY I bought back in March. Just wondering from the pics if I could have done better?? I needed a project while I'm off work with my recent back surgery. What do ya think?? 320014398177

    Hello, I'm in the process of building a guitar from parts or using a Pacifica as a basis for a 'super' strat. Does anyone have one for sale, one they dont use and want to sell, or any parts - neck and bodies? I'm open to anything really, please get back to me if you have anything I'm expecially...
