    Okay everyone, I have joined a band with great potential, and I am so excited to see what happens! Influences included periphery, animals as leaders, intervals, tesseract, a day to remember, etc. I was just curious the lowest tuning I could use on my universe while still maintaining a good...

    Does anyone know if the body dimensions on the extended scale guitars differ from those on the 25.5" scale guitars? The wiki seems to have all the neck dimensions but not body dimensions. My specific case for wondering is I have a custom made RG7620 replacement body. I was wondering if I could...

    I'm fairly new to scales and this is probably pretty obvious although I need to make sure Normally it a major scale would go like this A B C# D E F# G# A. But can it go like A G F E D C A# A? I'm guessing yes it can but I'd like it clarify. Thanks!

    Hey all. Used to own a 25.5" scale Ibanez premium 7 string. Got fed up with the low B string going sharp on the attack, tried bigger gauges but then found i hated how huge the string had to be to stop the problem. Ended up with big boomy mismatched low B. Ended up buying a premium 6 string...

    So i used the tension chart to work this out. I basically just tuned my guitar UP from standard half a step to see what the tension on a 27" would feel like and i LOVE it. Suits me perfectly. Considering getting a new guitar and im thinking a 27" would be nice. But having never had a chance to...

    So i have been learning about diminished scales. Found it really interesting. I have found something that to ME sounds like it should have a name. on 1 string play these frets. 1,4,7,10,13,16,19,22. It sounds very Yngwie Malmsteenish to me. Can anybody tell me what this is? Its killing me not...

    Just got my first 26.5 scale 7 string ibby. Always been a 25.5 player. Been a 9-42 user, have occasionally tried different gauges but always found that 9-42 suits me best. What gauge would feel the same on my new 26.5? Im struggling to find a set that all match up using the string tension...

I'm in the process of completing a guitar project, which began as a ibanez jem/ telecaster guitar, yet is now mostly a strat/tele but ive run into trouble with the neck scale's and pickup positioning. Originally the guitar was to suit a jem neck, however i never...

  12. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    I have an RG470 body but I believe its from the 2001 range and that it was an extended body model. Now when its extended range is the body a longer length from bridge to neck pocket or is it just the frets that are all increased in distance. So, would lets say a 25.5" neck fit onto the body...

    So Ive spoken with some techs and theyre sure my Intonation is remaining flat (even after saddle is at its full length it can go) because the original scale of my neck and bridge placement was 27" but when I bought the guitar not knowing the neck change was from 27" to a neck made for 25". The...

    Hi there, So basically I've confused myself, I've written a riff, and want to write a harmony line for it for the other guitarist in my band to play, but I've confused myself by trying to work out what I'm playing. The riff is played over a standard metal triplet chugging on the low E, and it...

    So I was diddling with scales and such, and I realized that I love the b5 because of the tension it creates. But I was thinking of what would happen if I made a scale with just a b5....no 4, no 5. Looks like so 1 2 3 b5 6 7 8va or in the case of C major, C D E F# A B C Have you ever you...
