    This was an unintentional restoration. I was at a local guitar shop when some guy brought this in trying to get a few bucks. He got a few bucks and I got this.... Being a child of the 80's, it was a no-brainer. I grew up on Poison, Van Halen, Quiet Riot, and Motley Crüe and this looked like...

    LOL Just scored this `92 RG565 in emerald green. It`s in fantastic condition, well by the looks of it anyway. Should have it next week. So this is my 3rd 565. It`s gonna go great with my collection. After this, it`s over, no more buying guitars...:roll::wink: Chris

    Ok, well, I'm thinking about grabbing another guitar and I want a real 80s shred monster thing. Floyd rose, 24 frets, the whole deal. Price is not a concern at this point as I want a real beast of a guitar. I want that 80s shred sound and the slick fast neck. My influence is John Petrucci.

    I was just on the sweetwater forum and replied to a thread about influences and since this is my favorite forum by far I thought I would share my thoughts on this issue. Yes, I believe that Eddie Van Halen has gone off the deep end but thinking about it seriously, this is the guy who inspired me...

    I had someone ask me today what songs I played along with that helped my playing get better. I'm not talking about what tone you like or who you like to listen to. I'm talking about who did you sit and play to for hours & hours in the "woodshed" to develop your style. Tell who and why you...

    Hey all, as the title says, I have a mint condition UV777BK made in 2000, hardly been played. This was the first guitar I owned that my guitar teacher liked, in fact he wanted to buy it! Anyways, I have hardly played it since I got it. I used to play rock and such much more frequently, but I...

    i played a black RG-550xx today and fell in love with the neck. it was the last one (they sold two DY, two RFR, and one black) in a music store where shred guitars don't move all that quickly, so they're somewhat anxious to unload them. i know they retail for 900, i can probably walk out with...

    Howdy all, first post! Ok, I've got major GAS for the Ibanez RG550 20th anniversary guitar. After looking at the specs though, I'm wondering if the RG2550 may be a better choice. From what I can tell, the differences are that the 2550 has the edge pro trem, the all access neck joint (as...

    Hey guys, I just wanted some thoughts on some guitars I'm thinking of getting. First would be something like a early 80's Kramer focus 3000/2000 or similar. The other i'm thinking would be older Charvel model 375 or something similar from them. Anybody have any experience or thoughts on...

    Tonight there was an episode of "It Takes a Thief' on the Discovery Channel on a guy that gets all his guitars stolen. One of them was a Jem777DY. I was surprised to see it, as it was in great condition and they even mentioned a Vai signature on the trem backplate. Anyway, I just thought I would...

    Let me explain to you my complaint lately...this isn't a rant, because I'm genuinely looking for something good out there. Is it just me or does everything on the market kinda suck [email protected] right now? Now don't get me wrong, if you wanna pay 2000+ dollars for a custom jackson or something, that's...
