    In my quest for the ever-cool "swiss army knife" I stumbled upon an idea based on a pair of unfortunate incidents. Let me preface by letting you all know that I have a cool Steinberger GS with a Sustainiac in it, my Bernie Rico Jr. has a piezo bridge with coil-tapped EMGs, I have a Suhr on the...

    HH vs HSH? I do prefer HH over HSH config. Less cluttered, looks better, and IMO additional split tones are definitely not worth losing those sleek HH looks. And on a serious side, tones like split neck + middle s don't really have any real big advantage over split HH. :wave:

    Hi all, I've been away from this site to avoid GAS for sometime now, but I find myself climbing the wall with GAS again and this is where it leads me. :) Lately I've been checking out the Caparison guitars and I'm afraid I'm hellbent on getting one. I'm looking into the Dellinger and TAT...

    I have a Gibson SG STD. I bought it because the neck was nice and the fingerboard on this particular one is uber sweet. It is a joy to play. I've never been very fond of the looks of the SG though. After having it about a year, it mostly stays in it's case because I've come to really be...

    I bought this the other day and it need a little bit of work. The Bridge was tarnished but after a little polish and eblow grease it shines very nice. Frets were in good shape but need a leveling so I did that (my first time) and a good job I must say so. A little Fret Doctor on the fingerboard...

    I've just recently put a pair of Breeds in my RG1570, along with a Blue Velvet in the center. However I'm really not happy with the BV and am looking to change to something else. I had to special order the BV, and unfortunately the shop had ordered the bridge instead of the neck pickup, and...

    Firstly If you're here to hate on relics then what the hell are you doing in a thread with relic in the tittle? If you dislike them so much then I don't understand why you read threads about them? Ibanezcollector makes some nice relic jobs to Strats and he always makes a realy good thread about...

    Hi everyone, I need some help. I have Music Man Silhouette (HSH) with DiMarzio Air Norton (neck) and D-sonic (bridge). Now I'm looking for a most suitable middle pickup to achieve kind of strat sound. I did try DiMarzio Cruiser but I don't like the way it sounds in the middle position. I would...

    Hey all, I'm looking for a set of pups to replace the stock ones in an 80's MIJ Squier strat. I'd be looking for a vintage strat sound, without the hum. I'm thinking maybe Vintage noiseless . . . Thoughts?

    I ran across what appears to be an 86 RG140 in very good condition, tho I have yet to play it. Here's a picture of what I'm talking about (black one, second from right): Does anybody know what type of neck this model has? I'm assuming it's not an origial Wizard, so I'm curious as to the...
