    That's right. Actually it's in the True Temperament shop right now. I will recieve it on monday! It's a -88 JEM7RB, the pickguard will be changed to a KICKASS piece of rosewood with true temperament-frets and abalone dot-inlays. Aaah, I can barely wait! Why have I done this? Well, first of...

    http://zacharyguitars.com/040705pics.htm What do you think? Looks like a monster! Probably in every aspect. Take a look at the neck. Seems really thick. Here are some videos too http://zacharyguitars.com/040705_01.wmv http://zacharyguitars.com/040705_02.wmv Too bad there's no distortion in...

    I recently bought a RG2620QM and I found the action was a bit too high, more than 3 mm at the last fret. I tried to lower the trem but the lower string started to buzz right away. I figured I had to give the neck some relief so I began adjusting the truss rod. After just two 1/16th turns I found...

    Want one, already have an eight string stereo Ralph Novak which you could pick up at around $2200 over xmas on ****, just an amazing Di Marzio eating sound. Seriously though Conklin will build you a gorgeous eight string with a Custom Trem which would be three times the guitar this RG will be...

    This is something no one ever talks about, and I was blown away when I first discovered it. This guy is really on to something! It makes perfect sense, and I am baffled that no one has figured it out before. I ordered a few of these sting sets, and I have to say there really is a big improvement...

    Anyone know the spec of Frederick's 8 string guitar? The scale and the string guages?

    A couple of months back I bought a Saga PRS style kit from Demiurge. My fiance and I went halves in the cost of the kit for a birthday present for me (which happens to be this Friday the 25th!!!). Seeing as we both went halves in this I thought I would name it "Niphen" (combination of Nicky and...

    Hey everyone, ive got some questions about the wizard neck and string guages. For the past couple of years ive been using ghs boomers low (11 15 19 33 43 53) on a les paul. There pretty much a 12 set with an 11 high. My majority of playing is in D.. however my band plays in Eb and when I teach...

    I've been looking through the search results on string guages and detuning and haven't yet found a 'definitive' thread on what guage strings to use for what tuning. I started out playing in E using 9s, then went to Eb. I liked the looser feel of the strings. Then I went down to D and they...

    All five are in now and it's way too stiff. What's the average number of spings on a lo pro edge7? I use three on my 6 string guitars but I have a feeling it might be not enough if i tried it on the 7620 Also, anybody ever use a light gauge bass string for the low B? I tune standard and use...

    I can't decide on which Jem to get.. the 7dbk or the 7vwh. they both have great playability and i know that the 7dbk is basswood and has breed pickups.. but is that the only reason why it costs about $600 less than the 7vwh? I like the way the 7vwh looks a little better but thats no big deal...

    As it turns out Floyd Rose is a local guy. A little while back buddy of mine had gotten one of the new Speedloader bridges from Floyd and his having Don Grosh build him a guitar. I've been wanting a guitar with a Speedloader for a while so when the HippieCaster came I had the perfect guitar...

    I consider myself a pretty proficient guitarist. However, there has been one technique that has eluded me...super-fast Sweep picking. I can sweep pick at a moderately slow tempo, but when I start getting faster, it all goes to hell. It seems that all the Neo-classical shred guitarists (i.e...

    :!: Do anybody knows which strings and tunings do bands like Cannibal Corpse and Nevermore uses with their 7-string guitars ? :?:

    I decided to restring my Schecter with a 10-52 set using a 58 for the low-B string. The only problem is, the intonation's off on the low-B string. Ok, I thought, just adjust it. Only problem is, the saddle won't move far enough back for it. However, I've noticed that, because of the heavier...

    Hi, I bought me a RG2127x one half year ago, and immediately put my favourite string gauge on it. .010-.013-.017-.026-.036-.046-.056 I had to add one spring to the bridge because of the tension. (making it 4) Now i'm thinking about changing the gauge to .009-.011-.016-.026-.036-.046-.056...

    Hey Guys. I've been playing on 10's for about a year now. I don't like 9's coz they don't sound as good. I use to play a 9 - 46 guage. However I heard that this is bad for the guitar neck and can cause your neck to twist. I was wondering is there any truth to this myth. Thanks
