    Hello: I'm writing to ask something. The answer may be obvious but I better make sure. I started a project on last year's summer and did not finish it. Mainly because I was moving to Continental USA. At the moment I was living in the Caribbean so the weather was always the same. No drastic...

    Hey all! So a while back I go my hands on a really cheap RG 7620 that I love very much. But after a recent mishap with foil tape I kinda sort of removed some paint from between the pickups to the pickup selector. Which looks kinda gaudy if you ask me. So for this winter break me and a friend...

    I wasn't 100% sure where this thread belongs, so I hope it's in the right place. I've got some ideas on a custom JEM project that I'd like to pursue. I've seen a few of you guys' projects posted here and there around the site and there's some really nice guitars that have been built. I'm...

    I'm looking into buying another Ibanez very soon. I'm wanting to get something somewhat cheap in price but overall a decent guitar. The reason is that I want to get a "project" or "tester" guitar that I can do all sorts of things to so I can hone my experience in customizing a guitar. For...
