    Wow! Went to see our hometown hero last night. Michael Lee Firkins is one badass guitar player. Uses the whammy bar like no one I have ever seen. He does a lot of pull-ups and tremolo with it that sounds like a slide. He does a lot of slide work too but damn he is good. Top of his game at...

    Ok...sincerely, from the bottom of my heart, I'm not trying to be a troll or to start a flame war (though that could conceivably happen anyway, I will admit)...let's just get that out of the way from the start. I seriously want to know everybody's response to this. Here's the question...is...

    What would you guys be playing if there was no ibanez? I would probably play fenders and carvins :)

    Hey all, I'm new here and am having such a hard time finding new music that speaks to me, I figured I'd call on likeminded people to help me (and possibly others) out. I've exhausted most resources like All Music Guide, Wikipedia, Amazon and Guitar oriented sites. I'm looking for melodic...

    Can you nail down the best tone you ever heard to the specific song, I can: John Petrucci on A Change of Seasons playing Achillies Last Stand during the solo. It's the best to me. What was he using at this time? Pickups, guitar amps? Anyone know? What kind of pickup could I use to achieve this...

    I live on Long Island, NY, about 45 minutes from Paradise Guiitars USA. I decided to go to their factory because after seeing the guitars on their website, I wanted one. Well I have to say. I was really impressed with those guys. I mean for musicians, as we all know, most of us are hard to deal...

    I realise that it's all down to opinion, but I thought it would be interesting to see who fellow Jemsiters think is the best guitarist ever. My vote is for Steve Vai... ( I think he will be a popular choice:)) What do YOU think? Rock on!

    Here are two photos of my Yamaha Pacifica 604W, in transparent cherry red. I've owned it for nearly a decade, and it's my main guitar. The pictures were taken with a 6 megapixel Sony Cybershot DSC-500. I'll post some more pictures soon. Kind regards, Myst
  14. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    Hi everybody, I was wondering if it would be possible to replace the bridge of this guitar... ...with a Floyd rose original? I'd also like to be able to raise notes, a third with the whammy bar. I'd have to have a space cut out of the body for that... But is this possible? You see, the...

    Just wanted to ask if anyone here in the forum has found themselves almost completely bored to death of shred guitar? Do you ever find yourself putting on your Vai, Satch, Dream Theater or other artists CD's in your players and after a few minutes just bored? The first time I felt that way was...

    Yes - I am selling my whole shred CD collection. It took me a very long time to find some of these. I have some real rare ones and some not so rare. If you see something you're interested in and believe I priced it to high, please feel free to make me a reasonable offer. I have a real good idea...

    At the moment I'm having to do a lot of miles up and down the M6 (a major UK motorway). It's getting a bit boring so I've purchased an ipod and I'm filling it with some top 80's rock/ shred tunes. So far I've got various tunes from the following bands... Ozzy, Ratt, Great White, White Lion...
