    I have been doing some Google searches and I am surprised to find that not a lot have people have embraced the combination of a recessed Floyd Rose (or in my case a Gotoh Floyd), D-Tuna and a Tremol-No. I know that some people like the ability to drop to "drop D" but can't do it with a recess -...

    Does anyone have a routing map for this? I've got a project guitar I'm working on and I have a spare Edge, I have looked far and wide for it and I haven't seen one so far. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated

    This just came in today. I've owned about a half dozen Charvels and Jacksons over the years, most of half of them custom shops, but I never had a Bengal and I always wanted one. This one was on "the 'bay" but I bought it privately via a contact I made outside of there. I bought it from a...

    Hey all, this is my 2nd attempt at posting as my first went into the bit bucket somewhere. I have a 1984 Ibanez Roadstar III RS440 model. It's Deep Purple in color. I've had it about 7 or 8 years now and haven't really played it because the pickups were noisy and scratchy and all around not...

    I'm putting together an ibanez body a prestige 2570 and I don't have the edge pro trem. I've seen the pics where the wings of the lo pro trem hit the current routing. Could I just sand down the wings and a little bit of the body and it would work or are there other modifications>?

    I went to Megadeth yesterday in Paradiso Amsterdam. Great show! First time I saw new Megadeth guitarplayer Chris Broderick. I was surprised to see he's an Ibanez player. And what a great guitar he plays! It's a 7 string purple quilted custom with a reverse headstock. Nice! Loved his playing...

    Up for sale is my 1986 Tom Anderson Pro Am. This gem was made back when Tom Anderson Guitarworks really hit the scene in the mid eighties as one of the world's premier guitar companies. In fact, this Pro Am has the rarer, more collectible ball headstock. You don't find these often, and I'd...

    Well, this is the last guitar of the GAS-iest year of my life! http://picasaweb.google.es/caprile/IbanezFGM400 This is the lightest guitar I have ever played, and also the "flattest" one. If you count the really flat fingerboard, the recessed trem and pickups, it's almost a paper sheet! LOL I...

    Hi guys, great website you got here, I've been reading for a long time but never really decided to post anything until now. For the last few months I've been having the dilemma between a JS1200 and a JEM7WH. I'm mainly a shredder, but I love to rock the blues sometimes. I'm a big fan of the...

    Who do you guys think are responsible for MAJOR changes to rock guitar playing, the guitar itself, etc. through the years?? Mine are: 1. Les paul-for inventing the electric guitar 2. Jim Marshall-obvious reasons.. 2. Jimmy hendrix-for being really the 1st guy to play guitar that way. He made...

    I purchased a Jackson DK2 about 4 months ago or so. It's not really the type of thing I would normally play, it was more of an impulsive buy for me as I liked the Trans-blue finish. Anyway, the thing has got far less play than any of my other guitars (save maybe my newest RG), but the trem is...

    hey guys, i'm currently placing an order for a custom guitar and i would like to use a standard wilkinson Vs-100N trem for the guitar. i was just thinking that since wilkinson trems cavities are non recessed, can the action of the guitar be as low as a recessed trem? compared to say, an ibanez...

    Hei guys, its me again with this slightly provocative statement. How reasonable is it to lets say invest 3000 Euro in a boutique amp for an average guitar player. There is that expression saying "its all in the fingers" which ultimately isn`t quite correct because the fingers just do what your...

    I'm constructing a Kramer-ish guitar with a non-recessed trem route. I've stumbled upon an Edge III trem rediculously cheap, my question is will the Edge III work for this kind of application or is the block not long enough? Any feedback or suggestions for good affordable alternate trems would...

    Hi I want to remove my ibanez locking studs to put onto a custom guitar I'm having built, is there any way to pull out the locking stud inserts? you know, the bits that are fitted into the guitar not the screw in bit.

    On the eve of the JEM20th announcement, it has become necessary to start a single, organized, contained thread where Ibanez customers of past and present can convey their dissatisfaction of the JEM/UV line to Steve Vai (and indirectly to Ibanez). Some of you are misguided in that you think...
