    I'm going to buy this guitar but I was wondering if it would be possible to have another volume pot installed as I love a bit of Toggle switch style playing a la Tom Morello. Any help much appreciated. Thanks.

    I'm considering buying this guitar and was wondering (As it's the only decent priced superstrat i can find with 2 voulme pots) how it would handle the toggle switiching style of playing (a la Tom Morello). It's a style I use quite a bit but I can't find a decent superstrat on which i'd be able...

    Hey guys. I'm having a spot of bother. I want to buy an Ibanez RG guitar as they are very versatile and I play Jazz, Rock, Metal and Country in various bands. One thing I'm wanting to do is to be able to do the whole toggle switching thing a la Tom Morello as i'm hoping to start a RATM cover...

    Just curious? Most Ibanez endorsees are virtuosos or at least cutting edge. Is Noodles in this category? Why did he get a signature model? Of course if they think it will sell and this is a good market, absolutely. Any comments...

    "Back in the day" we had the guys like Satch and Vai, and Nuno and George Lynch, plus guys like Scott Ian from Anthrax and the guys from Metallica and Megadeth. But... Who are the guys that the 15 year olds want to grow up to be? The UK guitar magazine try to convince us it's Trivium and...

    Yeah kind of a weird question, and I wasn't even really sure where to post this. I discovered that running my late 80's MIJ strat with upgraded fender noiseless single coils into my modded DS1, INTO my Marshall Guv'nor pedal, into my VOX Valvetronix on a *slightly* distorted amp...

    Who do you guys think are responsible for MAJOR changes to rock guitar playing, the guitar itself, etc. through the years?? Mine are: 1. Les paul-for inventing the electric guitar 2. Jim Marshall-obvious reasons.. 2. Jimmy hendrix-for being really the 1st guy to play guitar that way. He made...

    I have a Flextone III 1x12 combo, and it's cool, ...but I guess I just want to find out what a tube amp is all about. The curiosity is just killing me so I want to get myself a good tube amp on a budget and, well, see if I can tell the difference, see what all the hype is about, see if I've...

    I have a Flextone III with an FBV Shortboard. Wondering if anyone else has experience with this setup. I got it used about a year ago. I like it because of all of the tones that are to be gotten out of it. I'm really curious about how to get a couple of good A/B for clean verse and distorted...

    Hey, guys. I've got a bunch of little bits and pieces that have just been lying around my house, so I figured I'd get rid of them.

    I realise that it's all down to opinion, but I thought it would be interesting to see who fellow Jemsiters think is the best guitarist ever. My vote is for Steve Vai... ( I think he will be a popular choice:)) What do YOU think? Rock on!

    Who do you think is perhaps one of the most innovative guitar players to come around... Think about versatility... I KNOW that vai has his own sound but there are a lot more versatile players out there that are doing their own thing.. IMO vai has had his sound since his first album, and it...

    Well, I REALLY hate to part with this guitar but I need the coin to cover some recent purchases. This is a Royal Blue RG421 (Japanese hardtail RG) with DiMarzio Tone Zone (B) and Air Norton (N) pickups. Pickups sound great, however, there is "no sound" when the 5-way is in the position two...

    So just like most people, I have a beater Squire strat I picked up for less than a bag of rocks ages ago. It plays no better than a boatlod of rocks, and in general just feels crappy in the hands. I have sanded most of the paint off it, Tung oiled the neck and threw a Cool Rail in the Bridge...

    For me it's Jason Becker. I really would like to know what amp, distortion pedal he uses on his demo tapes to Roth. Check out the songs from here. Guitar sounds like a buzzsaw with endless sustain. http://64.162.150.71/NeverHeardHotForTeacher.mp3 http://64.162.150.71/NeverHeardYankeeRose.mp3...
