  1. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    Hi there, does anyone know where to get a chrome/metal switch tip for an Ibanez five way switch. I got one for a strat and it doesnt fit. I've put chrome metal knobs on my universe because its easier to use the push pull pot than the strat style knobs. Any suggestions welcome Thanks

    Well i think one of the first things that has to go on my UV777 I've got coming is the lame strat knobs. I realy don't like 'em. Soooo, I was thinking I'd get the metal dome knobs in black. I was wondering if anyone here has changed the knobs on their UV777BK's so i can see how they look.

    Ok, the problem is this... I have a RGR570FLB, as the model number suggests, it's a reverse headstock 570 in Blue Metal Flake. Anyway, I was thinking about adding some cool mods to it: Blue knobs, blue pickup covers and some blue DR strings. Well, I tried to remove the tone knob, thinking that...
  6. Pickups & wiring
    I'm doing research on how I want to wire my incoming dual humbucker Prestige so I'd appreciate any feedback I anyone has to offer on my ideas. First let me state a few things: - I don't have any need for a standard tone control on a rock guitar. - I would prefer to keep the control scheme as...

    My mate's selling his RG for quite cheap and I'm quite tempted by the price. I'm not sure what model it is, and haven't found similar enough pictures of it. Colour: White (body and headstock) Fretboard: Rosewood with normal pearl dot inlays White pearloid fretboard V pickups in HSH layout...

    Ok in the spirit of posting all the nice new gear and sweet collections lately, I've finally got time to post my "Restored" Jem90ham. I have not played this guitar since I went into National Service! Before that I took out the pickups and sold them away, firstly because I disliked the tone of...

    I recently picked up an RG450 from a fellow Jemsite'r. I stripped it to bare wood, refinished it, re-wired it, repaired a prety serious body crack that was causeing the trem posts to lean forward, installed a custom pickguard, and some new pickups. I'm waiting for black strat style knobs, a...

    I figure a lot of you guys here are shredders which after 20 some years of playing is what I strive to do well. Not sure I'm there yet but I'm having a blast trying anyways. I have a Mk IV which is pretty cool but I'm thinking of trying another set up. What do you guys play through?

    Hi- I'm contemplating on getting a push/pull pot (on my RG550) to switch between my neck and bridge pu, like what george lynch uses. I don't have the middle pu anymore and i never use the middle position on my 3-way switch. Anyway, anyone use this as well? How easy is it switch? Pros or cons...

    Hey guys I'm one of those who would have a bit of a problem buying one of these. It's a truly wonderful guitar, but it's a bit too much vai over this one. actually over all the jems, but this one in particular. It's like the same thing if you try to copy someone elses tone, that you need a 7vWH...

    This should be ready to ship by the end of the week. I think it's is the prettiest guitar we've ever built. It's one of three we're currently building with a cocobolo top and it's just as pretty in person as it looks in the photos. Here's a quick clip that I did with it this afternoon...

    I'm in a bit of a quandry here. I have a decision to make and it's getting more difficult every day. First off, a few weeks ago I was looking at buying a new guitar and settled on an Epi Les Paul Standard +. The wife wasn't much for going to the music stores and I only played a few guitars...

    We've been using this guitar as a demo, first at NAMM and lately for some extended trials by a couple of players. It's still very clean, but I'm not prepared to sell it as new anymore, so I'm reducing the price to $1950 (a $500 reduction) including shipping in the US. Some of you may remember...

    I have a GSA60 (yes i know its a cheapo :) ) and i have always thought the radius was 240 mm as said on the Ibanez site, but yesterday i wandered off to the Philippine site of Ibanez and looked at the GSA60 there... they have it in basswood instead of agathis and the neck dimension were...

    Thinking of selling my VSBL. It's 2002, in near mint condition, the Ibanez decal has 1.14mm missing from the tip and there are ever so slight scratch marks on the back only viewable in the right light. It has a custom scratch plate (blue + white swirl), and matching blue and white strat style...
