    So I’m in the process of buying replacement parts form my original Edge trem and I need to know if I have to buy saddle shims for it. The guitar is a 450s from 1990. Since I’ll need to match the radius of the saddles with the radius of the fingerboard I’ll also need something to measure the...

    Hi there I know that the original Black Dog had a Roadstar neck, but am curious to know what radius the board on it would have been? From what I can tell the JS neck is one of only a few which has a 240/250mm radius, so that's obviously Joe's preference, but wouldn't a Roadstar have had...

    Bought it as a project guitar, got it painted yellow, put everything together. Guessed on the wiring, and miraculously it worked!!! C2 pickups has shocked me. Ibz/usa series are so inconsistent. Sometimes I'll find one that just blows me away,and sometimes they sound terrible. It has the...

    Hey there i'm buying a JEM body, routed for edge pro and lo pro bridges, and i was wondering if i could (because it is cheaper) use instead an Original Floyd Rose without any routing. Thx in advance.

    I just bought this on a whim hoping it would be an incredible guitar, and wow was I right. Body is half walnut half alder. The neck is an array of walnut, curly maple, and rock maple. Body was handmade by the guy I bought it from. Neck was handmade by Jamerson guitars in New Jersey. Pickups...

    Would anyone happen to know the technical info on a rg-320 neck? Heel width? Nut width? Neck radius? Locking nut size?

    Can someone confirm for me that the neck radius on the JS is REALLY 250mm??? That comes to LESS than 10"... 9.8 and change in fact. I find it a bit hard to imagine that the neck on the JS is more curved than on an SRV Fender strat that I played (and hated, although not solely because of the...

    I am about to begin my first fret job. I pulled the old ones out and they were either not glued, or the glue didn't hold at all because the removal was quite easy. So my question is... to glue or not to glue? What is the difference (other than gluing being a pain in the butt)? I will be...

    Finally got my J Custom from Rich, Yes, just as expected, it's amazing way too beautiful. I will love it forever. Only thing I dislike feel wise is that both of my E strings are a bit high. It's not terrible, but I know it could be better. I've had some experience carving bone nuts, but...

    Somebody scoop it up, before I change my mind. It started out as an 80s MIJ Squier Strat, in red, but I wanted black, so I swapped out the body, Installed the trem, and routed the nut shelf, installed new tuners and strap knobs, then added the WD, single-ply, black pickguard, and finally...

    Or help me understand the frankenstein possibilities of the radius/JS family of guitars. I have some part compatibility and general hardware confusion questions for various forms of the Radius/JS. I did do a lot of reading before posting, so I’m not totally inconsiderate… 1. Neck swappage...

    I have a 2006 ESP Lynch Sunburst Tiger. I just took it out of its case to play it for a few minutes and noticed a NJFC! It's on the bass side and is about 1/4". I bought the guitar a couple of months ago off a guy that had bought it new a couple months before and realized he overextended his...

    Howdy all, first post! Ok, I've got major GAS for the Ibanez RG550 20th anniversary guitar. After looking at the specs though, I'm wondering if the RG2550 may be a better choice. From what I can tell, the differences are that the 2550 has the edge pro trem, the all access neck joint (as...

    I was torn between the salmon colored one and the black one and decided on the black one. Here's the description: This is a very early Gambale, serial indicates 1990 manufacture but the FGM didn't appear in the catalogs until 1991. It's definitely an FGM though complete with recessed...
