Also, how do I know how much to adjust the truss rod after putting...

    I was reading some of the "What Amp should I buy" or "What distortion pedal" topics and had a thought. How important is tone to some people and will you pay extra to get it? What I have seen is people will spend a lot on a guitar then run it through a crappy amp THEN buy another expensive...

    A friend of mine did a "RG2228 REPLICA" from scratch! See video and pics here! Yep. If you don't know, the new RG2228 isn't available here in Brazil just yet. So, a friend of mine, LUCIANO MARCIANI did his own Custom RG2228 REPLICA! He is not a luthier,but knows exactly what he's doing!!! The...

    So I've got a question - you've got one trem set up with 3 springs, then 4, and 5 - with the same tuning, total spring tension etc. - when you use the trem, would the one with 5 springs be harder to use than the one with three springs. I was thinking about it for a bit, and was like "hmmm...

    Hi there, Not matter how much I adjust the bridge, I cannot achieve the action that I have in my JEM on my RG. JEM has Lo Pro and RG has Edge Pro. When I lower the bridge, high E string touches frets on upper frets. When high E string free from upper frets, I don’t like the action. Is there...

    I'm not the foremost expert when it comes to 80's Ibanez guitars, due to the fact that when I was a kid back then I couldn't afford even a 550. :) But, I will take a stab at a review of the 20th RG-DY I have here that belongs to a friend of mine. My DY is on order with Rich and hopefully will...

    Hello. I am looking for the Japan made RG7620 with the lo-pro and blaze 7s. I don't care about the color because I want to swirl it and I would prefer one with some paint chips as long as shes got a straight neck. Anyone got anything like that?

    Ok, so I have 2 Fenders that I am thinking I want to sell. The first is a 1971 Strat, players condition, with the only major gotcha being a hole next to the trem, where a previous owner pulled an SRV and put a lefty trem on. The guitar has since been converted back to its original right handed...

    Looking for a trade for this PRS Guitar. Collector value on these according to the book is 1500-1900 tho only yield thus far in 2006 1200-1600. 2007 will bring the market up on these as well. But as you know, the lower the serial number for number built plays HUGE a factor in PRS guitars. This...
