    Today i wondered into a local music shop looking for a new cable (exciting right). A friend of mine who worked their handed me an Strat (he knew i wanted a G and L and he has been trying to get me to buy a fender for a month now). It was an Eric Johnson signature Stratocaster. I am usualy an...

    I'm torn between a set of YJM/YJM/HS-3 (Bridge) or Cruiser/Cruiser/Chopper (Bridge). The YJM/HS-3 set is basically what you get on the Yngwie Signature Strat. As much as I love Yngwie, I don't want to sound just like him. However, if out of this set I can get his earlier Ritchie Blackmore tone...

    Right chaps, GAS attack and I'm looking for some new gear (and the missus has agreed to fund the majority cost - woop :D) Looking at any guitar really - preferably fixed bridge thats under about £850/$1500 as I've already got a JS1000 and an RG project guitar which so far so good is going...

    About 2 months ago I bought a loaded Clapton pickguard with the Active pickups off a fellow Harmony Central member (who I am told frequents Jemsite as well) that was out of his 1996 Torino Red USA Eric Clapton Signature Strat. I wasn't really sure what I was going to do with it, but I love the...

    I'm a relatively new musician who is looking for a step up from his Epiphone. I have two questions. Number one: is it worth it? Number two: do any of you JEM owners get put down musically for owning one? E.g. they say your just trying to copy Vai. I mean, this guitar is all I've been looking...

    Well, I REALLY wanted to get my second Richie Kotzen clone finished for Halloween, but with my work schedule and some last minute travel, it didn't quite happen. I've got some touch up work to do on the finish, final polish, shielding and wiring on the body, then I've got to finish the headstock...

    Hi, Bought this just long enough ago that the store won't take it back. Just don't find myself using it. I bought it basically because Vai used one and I guess I just am not that serious! Great processor. Actually, it is like THE processor. Just too much for me. Main Features...

    Hey - I've got an HSS strat (Texas special) - with an SD Pearly Gates in the bridge position. The pearly gates is alright, I like it for dirty blues type stuff, but I find it very trebly, and usually have to fiddle for a while before I find a decent sound. Now from the Duncan site - the...

    I apologize ahead of time if this has already been addressed. I just ordered a Bad Horsie and am going to have it signed. Seeing as how I still want to play this thing, my thoughts are to remove the pickguard, have the body signed and put a clear pickguard over the signature. Now, some sites...

    Ok so i know that most people here like the Jem, Js, and PGM signature guitars. So why doesn't anyone like any other signature models? Is it beacuse you think they look like [email protected]? Is it beacuse you don't like the artist that has their name on it? Have you actually played one and found that...

    Does anybody know who he is?? :lol: I've heard he's the king of surf guitar and did the soundtracks in the movies Pulp Fiction and Res. dogs. But I've never heard of him. Should be interesting;) BTW - I guess his fans are called "Dickheads" :lol: So I guess "Parrot head" has been taken to...

    Help me fund my GAS... I need to move this one: You are looking at a 1995 Richie Sambora Signature Strat. This one is from the Mexican series. Features a Poplar Body in Lake Placid Blue, Parchment plastic parts and a maple neck with Rosewood Fretboard. Pickups are a DiMarzio H8 humbucker, which...

    Okay, I've narrowed my next guitar purchase down to one of a few signature strats. I'm particularly interested in the Malmsteen as the neck was much easier to get used to than I originally thought. Anyway, if any Malmsteen strat owners can chime in, here is my short list of dumb questions: 1...
