I have an RG270dx and i want to upgrade this guitar. Would a better upgrade be getting...

    Do I need to pull out the original trem studs of my lo-trs trem to accept the original Floyd? I think I've read that the posts of the lo-trs are not as wide as the ones that come with the Floyd and that the post holes would need to be drilled to a wider diameter for this swap to work. If...

    Been looking for this guitar for years, and finally saw one pop up on Craigslist in Austin, TX. A month has passed since the ad was posted....but it was fate, as the guitar was still available. The guy in TX was cool enough to let me pay him via PP, and ship it for me, so I gave him an extra $85...

    Here is my story. I recently acquired a 07 RG2570E VGD Prestige. I researched and researched, and tried out several Ibanez, Jackson, ESP guitars and decided this green monster was for me. I had the shop order one untouched, because most of the floor guitars there are poorly treated. Well it...

    I got my Jem 7v today, but the action is a bit to high. Im having trouble trying to figure out how to lower it. It looks as if theres a allen key hole inside the allen key hole. Do you have to unlock this some how? None of the allen keys provided fit the small hole inside the hole.

    Hi there, Not matter how much I adjust the bridge, I cannot achieve the action that I have in my JEM on my RG. JEM has Lo Pro and RG has Edge Pro. When I lower the bridge, high E string touches frets on upper frets. When high E string free from upper frets, I don’t like the action. Is there...

    Will a lo-pro 7 directly swop into a RG7420 without routing? Thanks for the info.!

    I guess you are digging the trem studs into the wood, so is it possible to damage a guitar doing this? Talking about an OFR or Edge.. Ofcourse I don't mean in extreme fashion, but until the guitar has a low action on the fretboard. Any signs when you should stop? :p

    So, as many of you know, I have a Christopher Woods Jem body that was swirled by someone called "Biozanova" (of course I have NO IDEA who that is and the neck pocket is signed J.R. Mo... something. Dont know who that is either). I got it pretty much the way it is now. Body, pickguard, pots...

    Lately my Strat had not been staying in tune as well as it used to when using the trem. I then realized that my trem angle was not as high as it once was. I went back to this video (which is how I setup my Strat when I first got it) and presto! Once again I can go to town on the vintage style...

    Has anyone had their guitar painted from these guys? I want to send out my 7 string for a swirl, but wanted to hear some feedback. I did use the search function, so no "comments" please! If you could post up some pics that would be great. Thanks for the help.
