    Hi guys, So after thinking a lot I decided to buy a desert yellow 777 30th anniversary Jem. I think I got a good deal. The special picks were missing, but I didn't care, I thought it was still a good deal. Then I got home and I noticed the special engraved 30th anniversary plate that's...

    I just recieved a 50th Anniversary American Deluxe Strat today and am concerned with the quality of the instrument. The strings are mot even close to centered on the fretboard, favoring the treble side causing the high e to slip off the neck easily. This also makes the strings not line up right...

    Im on a JEM7VW The guitar jack/cable which goes to the amp from the guitar (you know, when you plug it in to play), is basically falling out of the guitars input jack and im looking for a way to tighten what holds it inside or any ways besides using velcro to correct it. Thanks in advance...

    I just played one of those 6&7 string doublenecks in Black with oval inlays. The guy at the store thought Ibanez only made 16 of these. Anyone know if it's really is this rare? They want big bucks but I have to admit- it's flawless.

    OK, gang. I'm in New York City for a few days. What's the scoop on the best new and used guitar stores out here? I'm near Times Square.

    i think this price increase is total bs. jems are already way too overpriced, why make them even more out of reach. There are a few jems in my guitarcenter which have been sitting there forever because they are so expensive. I dont know if this is a result of Ibanez or directly from Steve, but...

    Mods, if this isn't the right place, please move at your discretion :!: So, I'll be in New York in the beginning of September. A whole week with the better half :wink: . I was wondering if (and where) there would be some nice guitar shops - I know about Sam Ash, Manny's, GC and the likes...

    I'm sure a few of you have noticed I've been going through a major amp overhaul during the past few weeks. My amp collection consisted of a Mesa Triaxis/2:90 rack, a Mk IV combo, and a Subway Rocket. Then I got my hands on an old Fender Deluxe Reverb, completely fell in love with the clean...

    I am desperate to find out what these are like because on paper they seem like my ideal amp, Only probelm is I can't find a shop within 100 miles that has them yet and there's no reviews on harmony central either. Cheers Darren

    I need the tablature or music to Paganini's 5th caprice. Does anyone have the correct tablature and/or music? Also, I can transpose it from violin to guitar if anyone has that music.
  16. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    Hi, I ve seen a lot of swirls (about 10 in person) and countless in pictures. I find my self interested as much by horrible swirls as I do by the amazing ones! I own 2 multicolours (one MKR and one ATD). I like the swirl of the japanese better, and the coulours of the ATD better. None of them...

    Ibanez :. sz :: SZ320MHWBR .... I've recently played one of these in the store I work in and I'm about (8% sure I'm going to buy it. I'm just intrested in what you guys think about it. I think I would change the Pick ups and tuners if I got it, because the one in the store went out of tune...

    Howdy gang. I stopped in to the local Sam Ash a few days ago and checked out the SZ720 and SZ520. I was actually pretty impressed with the quality and craftsmanship given that they're made in Korea. I've played the Schecter C-1 Elite and in my opinion it doesn't even compare to the Ibanez SZ...

    Long story short... When I use the trem to make the pitch go down - the tuning is HIGH afterwards When I use the trem to make the pitch go up - the tuning is LOW Now the only way to correct the HIGH is to make the pitch go up and it puts it back to tune perfectly. The opposite for the LOW...
