    I'd been feeling the stock pickups in my MMM1 were a bit too "rawk", given that I'm mostly fingerpicking and playing pretty clean with it. Hey presto; add a superswitch, a Humbucker from Hell and a PAF Pro and it's a fantastic clean-machine. Took a bit of careful needle-file use on the pickup...
  2. Pickups & wiring
    I am getting a new pickup soon but am unsure on a few things. I want to get a Norton but have never really played one. THe output seems just right and the A5 would work well with my guitar, but does anyone know what the harmonic responce is like???? what about the clarity???? What about some...

    Hi everyone. Basically i'm asking two questions, the first is how the low b (or whatever) is affected by the choice of wood in a 7 string, the second is what kind of wood you prefer in them. Apart from generall curiosity, the reason i'm asking is because i'm making a guitar some time in the...

  6. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    This is related to a previous thread, but different enough to merit a new topic. My open string E buzz seems to be all but cured. It still does it, but less harshly. However I do notice, on both my guitars, that there is definite fret buzz coming from the E and A strings, even with the truss rod...

    Since I am selling my Jackson Soloist, I went out and picked up a RGT3120TDB today. I went out with the determination that I was either coming home with a JEM7VWH or the RGT3120. After test driving both for quite some time, I settled on the RGT3120. Believe it or not I was more comfortable...

    Hello there, this is my first post so apologies if I've posted it to the wrong section! I took delivery of a new 2003 Jem 77FP today and, following many hours reviewing the Jemsite, was somewhat dismayed to see a crack in the neck joint. I was given to understand that this should be something...

    Traded an RGT42 (just couldn't get into the Floyd Rose) for an Ibanez Jetking in Butterscotch TRansparent. I really am enjoying this guitar. It's got a great old school, Teisco/Silvertone vibe to it and played loud on stage, it didn't squeal with the stock pickups in it which made me very...

    I'd imagine some of you have some cracking user patches (in the vein of satch and vai no doubt) Are you willing to share them with me? The line 6 library store never seems to gets used by users.

    I know I am risking a massive flaming here - but bear with me on this OK? For so long I worked twards getting a Jem / Jems. Cash is a prob with two kidz and trying to get a band off the ground - but anyway, I traded and saved and eventually I got myself a Jem 77BFP and a Jem 7 Desert Yellow. I...
