    I need a help from the UV pros here. I never held an UV in my hands, only saw them by photos, but now I have a chance to get a '96 UV7BK. Here are the pics the guy sent me, but I'm not in psychological conditions to evaluate them, GAS is boiling. Please tell me if she's worth, at least for what...

    So I watched some old Jason Becker videos and noticed him shredding away on some Charvel guitars and I was wondering... What can you tell me about Charvel-Jackson guitars built any time between 1985 to 1989? I'm referring to the Model series (i.e. Models 1 through 6) - specifically, I'd like to...

    Does anyone know if any production strat head charvels came out with Ontario neck plates when the shop was moved from San Dimas. Again I said production models not custom orders. I have a chance to purchase one, but have my doubts on this one. I know these guitars are copied a lot and I want to...

    I purchased a Jackson DK2 about 4 months ago or so. It's not really the type of thing I would normally play, it was more of an impulsive buy for me as I liked the Trans-blue finish. Anyway, the thing has got far less play than any of my other guitars (save maybe my newest RG), but the trem is...

    Well here is my Charvel (MIJ) in the process of rebuilding, however Im so excited with the tone I have to share it. Im not sure if its just the guitar or the "Ping" Floyd Rose, this guitar has such great tone, even with the original old Jackson pickup I have. Just so 90's metal thru my...

    I have to recommend the work of an engraver named William Larson of the FSR Custom Shop, who offers his services on the bay, making custom neckplates. I wanted one last piece for my RG-IDOL, a guitar I built from parts a couple of years ago and which is now my main axe, despite a lot of lonely...

    Ok, Sorry If I am making some foul by posting this here but, I wasn't satisfied with what I found archived. At one point, people were talking about a 565 with rosewood, shark's tooth, reverse headstock. I have spent the last two weeks researching such a guitar...mine, and have ended up here...

    I was wondering if any you know what the JEM, UV or even JS Prototypes became ? There are a few that are known to be in proud owners' hands but many other for which apparently there is no traces left. At that time, the few that are know from my side are : * JEM GMC : hold by a US Jemsite...

    I've got two RG550s in RFR that have unfortunately lost their serial number stickers. One of them is definitely an 87/88 as it has the basic neck plate as seen in the '88 catalogue (almost flat with "Made in Japan" across the centre) but the other has a cast plate with a big 3D Ibanez logo in...

    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

    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...

    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...

    Hello, Do the old style RG bodies with the angled heel need a particular type of neckplate due to the screw holes going straight down 90 degrees and the plate being at an angle? Are the necklpate holes are countersunk deeper or angled to stop the screw heads protruding? I was just looking at a...
