    It finally arrived a few days ago. I love the top on this and the Aldrich pups sound very nice :) However, it arrived with the set-up totally messed up. Probably put that down to it happening during shipping. So whilst setting it up, I try to adjust the truss rod. But couldn't get the wrench to...

    I walked into a shop wednesday, and for some reason a PRS CE24 gave me some instant gas. I've played one or two, but never was that impressed. But for some reason this sunburst model just felt right. It was nice and 'played in', the neck had a great maple figure, the finish worn just right...

    Has anyone here found their 'perfect guitar', the #1, the 'cannot be beat' axe that is perfect for them in every way? Maybe it's nit-picking but I'm still searching for that elusive super-axe. I've got a few guitars right now that are close, but not quite there 100%. I've been playing Ibanez...

    I'd like to get some opinions on this. I've owned at least 20-25 Ibanez guitars over the years. Mostly RG models but I also had a JEM and a JPM model for a while. Now I realize that Team J Craft is a specialized group of Ibanez's most experienced builders and the VAST majority of their guitars...

    So, I've been looking at Schecter for the last coupla years, but always end up buying an Ibanez every time. I've been playin' them for 20 years and Ibanez just rule, but the Hellraisers look, sound and play pretty bad ass for the most part. I say the "most part" because I've played 4 or 5...
