    I've been pondering the idea of having a custom 8- or 9-string made.  I know someone around here has one or both.  Can you please hook a bro up with some pictures, specs, and any other info possible? Right now, I'm thinking of 9-strings (F# B E A D G B E A), 27" neck scale, 36-frets.  Insane I...

    When it came out in the early 90's, Vai touted the seven string as the next great evolution in guitar playing. He used it exclusively for a few years and then just sort of dropped it. Amongst other players, Satch, Gilbert Petrucci, etc.. it may be used occasionaly, but it's never their main...

    I picked up a {gasp!} Paul Reed Smith this weekend, and paid too damn much for it... It's just a generic looking trans-purple Custom 24 with a couple of good nicks in it on the bottom edge of the body and some worming on the back from a belt buckle, but it has the sweetest neck in the world! I...

    I'm thinking of changing the Blaze out of my UV7PWH because it's too muddy. Is the EMG 707 more trebly and higher output?

    I've been looking at the www.conklinguitars.com site and some of their guitars are mouth watering. Does anyone here have any experience with these guitars? Are they worth the hefty price tag to get one custom made. Has anyone ever played one? If they are worth it I would some day consider...

    wouldn´t it be cool with a 8 or 9 string RG or UNIVERSE guitar, i´ve read about this guy that custombuilt a 14 string guitar but that would be a little too much for me, ever since i bought my RG2027 i´ve been doing some slapping tecnique on it and found that i want more strings. but still be...

    To those of you whom use 7's regularly... Do you also play 6 strings? How long does it feel akward to your hands (and brain) after you switch? I'm having some major difficulties getting comfortable with both sizes. Ideally, I'd like to be able to pick up either and feel "at home" instantly...

    Today after a few wekks of thinking I bought an Ibanez Soundgear 6 string bass and a Peavey 115 TNT amp. I could have spent the money one a new guitar but thought "Hey I have a great guitar  right now (Dimarzio loaded RG570) so I will spend some of my new guitar money on this bass rig. So far it...

      Hello, has anyone ever seen an Ibanez Soundgear 1010?  The bass player in our band has one, and after we ordered it from Ibanez in late 1997 we never saw one again!  Did they even produce them at all?  Wondering if anyone's seen hide or hair of it.  By the way, it's a faaaantastic bass.  Do...

    The 7 string is all over the place. I hated it at first, because I didn't like Korn, and nu metal in general. I have since found that there are some good nu metal bands out there, and it's all ice cream, as they say. When low budget 7 strings first appeared, I knew that the 7 string is the pink...

    I'm looking for personal suggestions on this one... I want to install either an EMG-707 active pickup (the model used by Dino Cazares of Fear Factory) or a Seymour Duncan Distorion pickup in the bridge position on my RG7620. Has anyone had experience with either of these? Which would you...

    Woo Hoo!!! Yesterday, I finally made the downpayment for a brand new UV777BK at a killer price too. It has been my dream to have an Ibanez Universe for a long time now and it has finally come true. All I have to do now is wait for June to come to make the rest of the payment when the shipment...

    Just acquired a RG7620GN recently..it seems that they are loaded with the new dimarzio7s and not the so called Blaze pickups..I am contemplating on which pickups should I change to? should I change the neck to the Blaze neck or the Paf7? The Paf7 seems to have a lower output though..As for the...

    Hey all, I've got some questions about the 7421 that I thought you all might be able to answer.  I'm lookin' to get into the world of 7 strings (mostly to match up better with my friend's 5 string bass).  Now, my question is:  How good is the 7421 with respect to quality of build, etc.  (I can...
