    Super long shot here, but I'm after a JP 7 with Koa Top (and possibly with a Rosewood neck too) or a Majesty 7 (depending on colour/model) EU preferred, but US it's not a problem, as long as the price is good and we can work out the shipping. Only 7 string version, sorry. No JP X JP XI JP 12...

    Hey guys! I've asked the dealer of music man here in my country for a jp6. They couldn't get one but they had a jp6 BFR custom rosewood neck which I am now more interested in. My question is were all of those models basswood or there were alder ones? (I haven't seen it yet since I'm out of...

    I have decided that i want to buy something more classic like a strat. After a lesson at UT one day i wondered around Knoxville looking at Strats until i found a G and L dealer. The G and L Legacy (strat) is alittle cheaper and much more customizable (they let you choose your pickguard, color...

    I am doing a project with a 770FM Red body I got from some friends here on Jemite and my RG550 Maple neck doesn't look quite right on it. I would think a rosewood neck or Jem neck would quite nice on it. Lemme know what you have and what you wana let it go for. Thanks Cos

    I used a body I got off the bay, already painted. I have a local guy do the clear coating and shielding if the body cavities. He did a fantastic job! Next I ordered some custom pickups from DiMarzio. They are De-Activator-X humbuckers and an Air Norton single coil. I bought an early 90's RG 470...

    I'm stupid, I swear. I'd been chasing this guitar for a LONG time. I finally found one, it needed a few things and a lil TLC when I got it, but now that I have it... I'm not sure I like it. WHY!?!?! I love the graphics, I love the playability, but the Maple, I dunno, I just can't get on with. I...

    yesterday i was looking at my bc rich and i found that there were more pores on the fretboard than before? is this bad ? or is it something natural cause i dont remember seeing it b4 it was pretty smooth, same with my ibanez strange, could it be due to humidity or temperature ?

    Maple or rosewood? All my Ibanez and PRS guitars are rosewood, so I've never really spent any serious time with a maple fretboard. Is there really that much of a tonal difference between the two, or are the differences more to do with the general feel of the maple compared to rosewood, or purely...

    Looking at Musician's Friend images of the new JEMs, the JEM7V WH fingerboard appears to be darker than JEM77V BK. Can anyone confirm this? Guitar Center in my area does not have a JEM in either color so it will have to be a special order but I can't decide on the color.

    This is a 2004 JEM7VWH as it says in the title. Its got the rosewood neck, and alder body in that year. It also comes with an edge pro. It needs new bushings. Also the hex wrenches that came with it are stripped, but you can use a regular hex wrench and it'll work just the same. It does has a...
