    The number is 3712741418. The catch is that it's closing in about an hour. Either the seller is desperate or stupid, because right now it's at just over $500. This thing has a spruce top over a koa body. The koa alone is worth about $300 just as a piece of raw wood. I think it's one of the...

    The Jem 2K model, what kinda of build quality is the instrument, is it just like a ''J.Custom'' kind of designation, or is it actually a more specific custom job made seperatley from everything else? I have played a couple and found them to feel alot more ''solid'' than DBKs even though the neck...

    How much money has everyone here spent (in their own currency) on guitars and gear that you own right now. You cant count gear that you bought then sold though. After my guitar from Rich arrives, ill have spent about $2100 on gear and guitars. Being a student with a crummy part time job, i think...

    Hi. I need to get a second guitar. Currently i am using a rg120 which has been great. Now comes the time to decide what guitar i should get as a step up. I have a couple of options: I could get a ibanez ex3700 (been compared to rg500 series) for 175 dollars, an rg 500 series guitar in the...

    OMG! I don't believe Steve is playing at the Royal Albert Hall. Tickets have to be bought immediately! As lovely as the London DVD is audio-wise, let me assure you that the sound quality at the actual gig was appalling, buzzy, bassy nonsense. For most of the time, I couldn't hear the lead...

    My buddy has a nice les paul he let me borrow and here are the specs. The serial number is, 02543584, and it has the number 64 written in black magic marker or a sharpie on the back of the headtstock between the tuning keys, which ive been told may mean its a custom shop guitar. It has a...

    This from the It Sounds Too Good To Be True Department: I heard on the radio the other day that VH and DLR have reunited and have gone into the studio to record a couple songs for a greatest hits CD. Then they're going to tour. The DJ said that this wasn't a rumor, but fact. (As if saying a...

    Well, ordered it early from sonymusic.com and it arrived last night complete with extra DVD cover authographed by all three Gs. :D Pretty cool. To my untrained eye, the filmography is superb, especially compared to Vai's most recent DVD. The sound is amazing with one exception: was Dave...

    so, when i started playing guitar, it was pretty simple. i plugged my dad's guitar into the guitar amp, and there i was, playing music. then, i bought a distortion pedal. plugged the guitar into the pedal, then out from the pedal into the guitar. still fairly simple. i'm curious about...

    The topic says it all... i've been really unhappy with my tone for many months now. I have a Line 6 AX212, and it's a keen little amp! Fun built-in effects, easy to use, tons of features... But it just doesn't do it for me. It also sounds really harsh cranked up when i gig with my band. Of...
  15. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    I have a RG2020x and my bridge is very hard to use, I have original Ibanez spring, new cut posts, and my tremolo still being hard. I have to make a great effort compared to a normal lo-pro bridge to whammy my bar, or to make a complete dive.

    Thats really weird. when i restring my jem7v, I always break the high E string, it never heappened with me on my old guitars (non ibanez). i use 0.09 d'addario strings. they break near the locking nut position. what do u think is the problem? i restring them with a tuner on, so there is no way...
