    1st, Near mint 1986 Jackson Made Schon Guitar. I have the original paperwork on it and Original case. This one is painful to sell but I have two of the less than 200 made. I remember waiting for these to come out reading the specs and getting the inside scoop as a member of the Journey fan...

    Pickups for jem project help Hi I want to start my first Jem project this year, so i've begun to read all the necesary documentation. I'd like to get a sweet distortion, sound closer to Neal Schon's tone in his albums "I On You" and "Voice" Any recomendations for neck/mid/bridge pickups? Thanks.

    I am hell bent on getting me an Ibanez with a neck that has a profile true to the wizard/super wizard dimensions. In one of the other threads i have been informed that J-customs no longer really come with the dimensions that Ibanez advertises on their website. The neck should be 17mm at the...

    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...

    I just read in the new Guitar Player about this potential new band. Page 16. They have a whole album's worth of power-trio stuff already recorded. The New Van Halen with Satch. OMG- I can't wait. This will be AWESOME.

    Disclaimer - Please no talk of share sites or PP software and how/where to do it. I just read an interesting interview with Glen Frey who said that he thought that there was still plenty of options left in the music business for CD sales etc rather than it moving to a stage where artists made...

    I have to admit that i didn't like Steve Lukather in the past. But now, as i'm growing older :) and out of my shredding phase :) i digg his playing very much. And he's got that big, airy, non-dry sound, at least on newer records i heard. I'm wondering what amps he uses? Or is his sound that way...

    Anyone else watching other companies for what they might have coming out this week? Just curious. We're all very Ibanez-intensive around here. ;) Not sure if this is in the right section, either....

    Check this baby out. For me it's the holy grail of guitars, others may disagree but I think it's fantasticly cool.

    Lately I've been paying alot of attention to tone, and mostly in Rock guitar. I would really like to see some players you guys enjoy tone wise. I'm gonna list some, and I gotta say, the guy I HATE the most is Brad Gillis, worst guitar player ever, but anyway, here is my List of best tone in...

    I don't read a lot of guitar magazines, and mostly because there aren't many available in my area, but I do pick up Guitar World occasionally (lately every other month or so if there's something that interests me). Anyway one thing that I've been noticing the last few months is whether its in...

    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!

    So I've been playing for close to nine years and I seem to have picked up a bad habit in my right hand. I'm not sure how to explain it, but for any lead work that involves fast runs I kind of isolate all of the picking to the two fingers holding the pick, as opposed to making the picking come...

    For me it's Jason Becker. I really would like to know what amp, distortion pedal he uses on his demo tapes to Roth. Check out the songs from here. Guitar sounds like a buzzsaw with endless sustain. http://64.162.150.71/NeverHeardHotForTeacher.mp3 http://64.162.150.71/NeverHeardYankeeRose.mp3...
