    Hi all, I bought a RGIX20FEQM for metal duties and I absolutely love the nitro wizard neck, so much that I'm contemplating selling my other Ibanez guitars to buy something that has a similar neck. The Nitro neck seems to be more of a c shape, it feels heaps rounder then the one on my 1520A...

    Hello everyone, I'd like to have your advice on the Ibanez JS 1200 and RG prestige. My next guitar will undoubtedly be an Ibanez. I've always had the JS1200 in mind but I recently tried the RG3250MZ which my friend just bought and I have to admit that I'm now hesitating. My main concern about...

    Looks like Gibson re thought the Standard and gave it some of the more popular features it probably should've had for a few years, without much or a price bump Body Wood: Chambered mahogany Top wood: Plain maple Neck Joint: Set-in Neck Wood: Mahogany Fretboard: Rosewood Plek'd on Gibson...

    Hi there, I had a chance to play a jem 555 today. I'm really gassing for an Ibanez RG and wondered how the Jem compares to say a 1570 or 2550 RG in terms of feel of the neck? RG's are thin on the ground around here. I really liked the neck shape and it felt like a quality instrument...

    Oh hell yeah! http://www.charvelguitars.com/ The comments are from my resident Charvel freak Mike. "I'm waiting to find out more info but the basics from what I've heard/read are that they are being built on the same line as the USA made fender strats just using the Charvel CNC program to get...

    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 just went to the guitar show in Chicago and ran into a custom builder that goes by abyss guitars. His custom work was just stunning!!! His inlay skills are incredible. He's expensive I think? As I dont know how much custom guitars normally go for his start at $5500 and go to about $15000. If...

    I am new here and new to the Jems but having discovered them, well, got to have one. I bought a 7VWH and this one with the idea of keeping the one I liked better. The 7VWH has a slightly fuller neck shape that I like more so I am selling the 7DBK. They both sound and play great. The...

    When I say near mint, it's a couple of swirls away from nos. Still has all plastic on the covers and unopened case candy. An honest 9.8 out of 10. It's montego black which is a pearl like black with bronze/gold glitter that matches the pickguard. If it was any other color, you would not see...

    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...

    Hi all, I have kinda rediscovered my ancient RG550 recently. It's an old RFR one from '87 I think. Anyway, I recently played an RG2570 and the neck shape seemed better to me (it was a bit fatter, slightly wider & felt a little V shaped to me). So I'm wondering if there is another model (neck)...

    What would you guys consider to be the best current guitar investment? What guitar make and model do you believe to be currently undervalued and likely to increase in value over the next several years?

    This is the Red/White Plaid Samick/Valley Arts guitar that was owned and used by Blues Saraceno himself with hard case. The was the prototype for the Samick line. It is the same guitar that is pictured on the back of the "Hairpick" record and used in the REH instructional video. Also used on...

    This might be a silly question. Do you guys have ever experienced that strings tension is different from one guitar to another? I feel that string tension on my RG is stiffer than on my JEM. If that’s not normal, is there a way to fix that? And what is the best low action you guys aim for?

    For some reason whenever I search on this site my browser "quits unexpectedly"; sorry if this thread has been done. Anyway, I lowered my bridge (Lo-Pro) as far as it will go and I'm still not happy with my action. I'd like it lower, and I've seen other threads where someone says "you should...
