    I have decided that i want to buy something more classic like a strat. After a lesson at UT one day i wondered around Knoxville looking at Strats until i found a G and L dealer. The G and L Legacy (strat) is alittle cheaper and much more customizable (they let you choose your pickguard, color...

    Jackson Kelly KE3 - Transparent Black Bought brand new in January 2008. The guitar is great to play, I like how the neck plays on it but I still can't really adjust to the body shape and to playing it. The guitar hasn't been played too much, it pretty much has spent most of its time in the...

    I really haven't found much backup on this, just here and there. Understanding this forum may be biased towards Ibanez, I would still like all opinions of superstrat type guitars and how they compare sonicaly and as far as quality (and visually if interested). Which guitars I have in my mind...

    This'll be a longshot, but is anyone aware of any model RG with the old block style neck joint and a fixed bridge? Thanks in advance (I have a feeling the answer is no since the old neck joint was very 80's... as was having a Floyd equipped guitar).

    Oh hell yeah! http://www.charvelguitars.com/ The comments are from my resident Charvel freak Mike. "I'm waiting to find out more info but the basics from what I've heard/read are that they are being built on the same line as the USA made fender strats just using the Charvel CNC program to get...

    I know a few people around here are into Les Pauls. Anyone care to discuss them? Don't get me wrong, I love Jems/UV's as much as anyone, but I think I have my fair share of em, and I have been gassing for a good LP for some time now. Let's start out with your LP's please post pics and stories...

    ....and the insurance will pay for; A guitar An Amp and A cable. Nothing else. You have to gig with that, and that's it. What do you get?

    Hello guys, I'm close to get a new single coil (neck position) to my strat, I'm looking for clarity and a bit more gain (than the fender AM S coils), all that without loosing the strat sound, what pickup can yo recommend me?

    I have a feeling most of you guys are going to be biased toward Ibanez guitars, but I'll try anyway... I've been upgrading all of my gear except for my guitars lately, and I feel it's time to buy a new guitar. I've gone through a few different amps before settling on a Vetta II, still need to...

    hey fender guys I need your help! I just got a used Fender Telecaster, and Im not exactly sure which model it is. here is what I do know: It's a 2003-2004, made in USA, has an ash body, 22 frets, and the pickgaurd has just the 5 screws (and none at the neck pup) but it has the vintage style...

    I took apart my first ever guitar the other day, a Strat imitation, and I want to tweak it up a bit because I love the thing :') I won't bore you with my ideas, instead I'll jump to the point: Am I able to get a nice JEM maple neck onto my Strat style body without having to do extra routing...

    Does anyone find that certain kinds of bridge make fast playing easier/more comfortable than other kinds do? It comes after noticing that I can't get the same kind of picking speed out of a hardtail that I can on a Floyd Rose or similar locking system. Has anyone else had this experience?

    Im planning on doing a Strat build.. with a carvin neck. Looking for a quilted top body.. I came to thinking, would an S body fit? I recall hearing that the neck pocket of the RG's matchs a fender neck, altho obviously with frets it wouldnt work.. but since S's are 22 frets anyways..?? Anyone...

    Hey guys, my main axe is a masterbilt tele with a thru neck (don't worry, i didn't pay the actual crazy prices fender charges, I luckily got it used for 1200$). Anyways, I love everything about it, except sometimes I wish it had a tremolo. I was wondering how much of a pain it would be to have...

    **EDIT: Quick photoshoop of what this beast will look like (hopefully I won't fork up the headstock painting like I did in the GIMP xD) **EDIT 2: DONE! But I have to shim nut, drill deeper neck mounting holes, re-align nut slightly, fix electronics since only the bridge pup works, and maybe a...

    At the studio I found an old friend of mine, and he was using an RG 7321. Of course, I asked him to try the guitar. :p I own a JEM 555 BK, and I never played a 7 string before. Maybe I'm just too used with the JEM neck. Well, the 7321 neck felt like a baseball bat in my left hand. It was too...
