    Ok here we go.. How to do a relic guitar, a practice that seems to be shrouded in secrecy. I am by no means a master of relic work but have been doing it for a while as a hobby. I want to present to the folks at jemsite how "I" do my relic jobs. First step is to get a guitar or bass.. pretty...

    Howdy all. So I'm modding my red hot Squier '51. I already put a neck on it from on old Mexi strat and with a shim it seems to have worked out great. However, my wife has a lefty Squier Strat with a very nice neck and a big old-school Strat headstock and she's given me the go to steal the neck...

    Anyone have beaters you love and can't part with(nobody would want them any way). Some strats, teles and RG's I think look cool with worn paint etc. Post pics if you have one.

    So my friend gave me his old Peavey pickup (obviously not the best 'bucker out there, but leaps and bounds better than my Squier single coil!) I put it in the bridge position of my Squier strat: Sounds SO MUCH BETTER than my old single... Oh, I made the hole in my pick guard with a dremel...

    This dumb guitar tech that set up my jem7vwh when I first got it put some type of fretboard conditioner on the rosewood fretboard, and now it looks like ebony under most light, and to me, it just looks terrible. He did about 8 months ago and it still looks like that. Even in the grains of the...

    Okay, so the members here all seem to have nice collections of guitars. I don't. It may be because I'm a minor, but it may not be, as I also frequent Ultimate-Guitar's forums, which are filled with teenagers, and they all seem to have at least 3 guitars, or at least 1 nice one. I was a bit irked...

    I've just been reading some of Guthrie Govan's Creative Guitar book and thought I'd share a couple of little stories from the section to do with maintaining your calluses. First off Stevie Ray Vaughan used to put superglue on his fingers then attach his fingers to his forearm, and then quite...

    Ok here is the continuing saga of the Squier strat I picked up used for $45.. It started out with one nick, and then I did this.. I then decided it didnt look authentic so I began doing more and more work, doing this and doing that.. It now looks like this, All I need is the switch tip, and...

    Hey guys! I have a student who has been taking lessons from me for a year or two. His mom is secretly going to buy him a guitar for christmas, and she wants me to help pick it out. She said she wants to spend about $400-$500 max, and i think she'd prefer to buy something new. My student is a...

    Well I found a site a week or so ago, that had a tutorial from fender on how to relic a guitar. Cool read but never thought about doing it.. Went to GC yesterday to just see what was new and seen this Squier strat sitting there, well it was in bad shape setup wise, and they just got it in on...
