    I was playing my 1999 570 last night and it would not stay in tune. I've been having that problem with it lately, but it was unplayable last night. The strings are Slinkys and about 2 weeks old, so I don't think they are the problem. I am worried that it might be the trem; i.e. the edges of the...

    On my Jem 7VWH, bending is really stiff compared to my other guitars.. and this is effecting my playing in general. The other guitars are a Gibson Les Paul and an Ibanez RG350EX. These guitars feel exactly the same for string tension.. and so I really dont understand why my jem is so much...

    Hi all, some of you may have read below - new JS1000 btb... mentioned about a bit of a buzz problem which only seems to be getting worse. Only seems to be along the majority of the low E and the first 5-6 frets on the wound strings. playing a barre/power chord sounds horrible =/ i tried to...

    I'm having a few tuning issues with my DBK. It started when I switched from an e.b. skinny top, heavy bottom set tuned to d to a hybrid set tuned to e. Now after every song the guitar is flat and I have to re-tune. Usually after 3 or 4 songs I have to crack the locking nut and re-tune from...

    Hiya, I just bought an Ibanez RG1520GK, but the seller didn't have the trem, so I ordered the standard (Ibanez) replacement. My problem is, if I push the trem arm fully into the trem arm hole, then I can't move the trem out of the way because the guitar's volume knob gets in the way. I...

    One of my guitars is a cheap Squire Stratocaster by Fender, which has always had 0.009mm strings on it. It is not a Floyd Rose guitar. I don't know how it's called in English, but it has a tremolo arm without locking tuners. Anyway, I want to install 0.010mm strings on it, but I don't know if I...

    I just sold my first ever guitar on the bay. Its an RG in a J-Craft case. I've never shipped a guitar and was wondering if any special precautions have to be taken. Can I just throw the case in a box or does something extra have to be done to the guitar in the case? Thanks.

    Hi people, Yesterday I decided to rearrange my trem springs before I put my new strings on. In the process, unfortunately my Edge Pro fell off its cavity and on the floor. I picked it up put it in its place, went about my business of new string placing and stretching and everything was ok...

    I noticed Herman Li (dodges flames* doesn't have his truss rod plate cover on his guitar. I am wondering how many people do this. I took mine off because it was kinda annoying when I was adjusting the truss rod...

    Firstly, yea, I know it's a Squier and those of you with higher end guitars may cast a dubious eye on this project, but hey - it's for a friend and it's for fun. Like many of you, I'm a guitar mechanic that loves working on them as much as playing them. Specs: 1992 Squier Strat. Made in...

    Let me first say you will not find another Prestige RGT220A is the great shape for sale. I have been watching since I got mine. Ibanez does not make these anymore except for Europe and not with the Edge Pro. This is a 07 model with Edge Pro Bridge. There are no dents, dings, scratches, divots...
