    I picked this up for $300 usd from evil-bay and just wanted to know if i got screwed or not. I love the jem look sound and feel. I just want to know if I got scammed or not. I would probably throw some breed pickups in it and call it done. The guitar is in transit now and i should get it within...

    Ahoy I just looked at pics of the old JEM's from the 80's and saw they had scalloped frets from 21-24 (I think it was a JEM). Can anyone enlighten me as to what the point of them is? Surely it raises the pitch of the string if yu fret too hard, making playing harder, especially with a floyd...

  9. Comments to Ibanez
    I doubt I'm alone when I say that I want more 7-strings from Ibanez. I have no complaints about the guitars that already in production, but there's just way too few options. Not to mention the complete lack of neck-through sevenstrings. In short, I'd like to see sevenstrings with different...

    Greetings, I new here. I just bought a 1992 RG 550 (black with maple neck, square neck joint). I was thinking of putting a set of Evo's in it (readily available and cheaply), but I though I'd solicit a few opinions from you guys. My band plays really wide and varied spectrum of stuff - funk to...

    Well, time has come to sell one of my RG550's. However, I do not know if I should sell it or part it out. It's a black, maple fretboard, 1990 RG550 (square neck joint), with original pickups in 8/10 condition. What would you do?

    Hey guys! Just bought this baby off the 'bay. It's a 1989 RG550DY that's been modded to effect a JEM with its monkey-grip, Paf-Pros and an entire fretboard replacement with a yellow vine inlaid :D . It's the same one sold from Cottam Guitars for £400, with the grip and pups as extra work. I...

    I have a 92ish S540 LTD and when I play (usually higher on the neck) there is a strange rattling. I try to use my hand to stop the rattling, but as soon as I unfret the strings the rattling stops. I THINK it's the washer in the hole where the trem arm goes. It's the push in type. Can I just...
