Everything is made in Japan and all the parts will be included (arm, posts*, locking nut, string tree and of course the 3 springs - no claw or...

    Hi guys, Has anyone had any problems with their picking hand/arm as far as positioning is concerned while alternate picking ? I typically have my hand rested on the bridge (same position as for palm muting, but i move my hand forward slightly if want to have muted sounds vs clean sounds), and...

    Hi, I thought it would be interesting to have a thread that's entirely dedicated to overdrive and distortion, in which you can share info about which pedals you prefer and why, how you've managed to get the sound you searched through the use of your pedals, etc. etc. It might be a cool thread...

    Part of a song I need to nail spot on in a month at blazing speed. I usually just do it "pull off" style. But picked sounds better, and correct. There is just something about this that's really hard for me. Not the picking speed, or the fingering, but together......it's a train wreck. I...

    I did a search and couldn't really find anything on this. The problem I have is that the ZR bridge in my 520EX buzzes and I can't find the cause. It's not the springs and doesn't seem to be coming from the back stop. It seems like it's coming from under the tuners. Anyone have any experience...

    Hey guys, hope to get some useful advice here. I have a Ibanez RG1550, in which I plan to install a Sustainiac.

    Decisions decisions. I've got the choice between a black '99 RG550 and a silver '05 RG2570, $600 and $500 respectively. I've played both models and don't really have a preference one way or another. Can anyone give me some more info that might sway my decision one way or another? Disregard...

    I am putting my Ibanez RGA121 up for sale. This one has the Vintage Violin finish. The only sign of wear is on the bridge from palm muting. This is an awesome guitar, but its not "the one" I am looking for. It doesnt have the fret buzz problem that I have heard about with some of these...

    Okay..this is complicated but I'm looking for advice. When I pick a lick from the low E string up to the high E string I have to shift between 2 hand positions: 1) Low E to D strings - Resting the side of my palm along the trem. Looks almost like the "Okay" hand symbol. 2) G to High E strings...

    SyncroniZR ZR II Edge-Zero (!!!) Look like they're all screw-in arms, and I guess the Edge Pro is being completely dropped. Obviously we'll have to play them for final judgement, but any preliminary impressions? I'd like to know the exact details on the SyncroniZR and Edge Zero, it's...
