    So I picked up a 570 about a year ago and I'm really wanting to bring it out to gigs. I've got the Edge all sorted out, but the tone is dreck. I'm figgering it's the basswood body. There's no "life" in it. I replaced the bridge pickup with an SD JB, but it's still not there. So I'm looking for...

    While at GC today, I played a $2099 Suhr Tele. Then playd a $149 Squire Tele. The diffenece? A whole bunch of money. That's it. The tone was a little different. But not $1800 different. Not even different enough for the average person to notice. And get this. The Squire was set up and...

    where I could possibly have an Ibanez Custom made to my specs? I might consider having one made but the model that almost seems like the one is an SZ prestige body, stoptail, figured maple top, fancy cross inlay on 7th fret, with intricate vine inlays, (thicker vines than on the jem) abalone and...

    I've got a year old 7VWH and there are so many little details that need to be worked out... one of my concerns is the neck pickup is dead... zero harmonics and almost no bite which is totally the opposite of their description, the pinched and tapped harmonics also aren't very strong could this...

    I just flew home and had a brand new Caparison Horus waiting for me. It was the first time I had ever seen one in person, much less actually played one. I liked it so much that I bought another one. I just haven't ever played a guitar that felt like this Caparison before. The action was set a...

    I'm from argentina and recently I saw a brand new Jem 555 at a local store. It featured an Edge Pro II tremolo, and when I started researching about this model on ibanez.com I realized that the new ones comes with an Edge III. I also noticed the same strange thing in the Rg 350. I bought one...

    Hi All I recently picked up a '99 PRS McCarty from evilbay. :-) In the listing, the seller mentioned it was a friends g'tar that needed the $$ etc and that he'd paid good money for upgrading to "Harmonic pick ups". I thought he was refering to some obscure PRS items, but I couldn't find...
