    Hey guys, I thought I would share my DIY truss rod wrench. I know these are not expensive but if your desperate for one and don't want to wait on ordering one, this will save the day ;) I needed to tighten the truss rod on my Jackson JTX and didn't have the right size. I decided to make my own...

    The previous owner of my UV7BK had 10's, and the action was pretty high, he used 4 springs. Now I'm making the setup with 9's, and I can't low the action as much as I want. I guess the bridge is too raised, but I'm not sure. I tried all the spring configs, with 3 and 4 springs, and the best was...

    I recently picked up a used 540P (Satriani Dreaming #11 model). I had a couple of questions I couldn't find the answer to: 1. Is the Ibanez USA bridge pickup in this guitar made by Dimarzio and if so, what current model would it be closest to? I've read a PAF Pro, or a Breed, but nothing...

    I'm the proud owner of the Ibanez Universe UV7BK #259248 ('96, right?). I talked about her previously. I had a previous experience with a 7-string guitar, and I didn't like it at all. But with this babe the things are different, she plays sweet... so comfortable... almost the same feel of a 6...

    Hi, I was wondering about something and thought perhaps you knowledgable JemSite folks could help me out :) I like to use quite heavy gauge strings, usually 12-54 in standard tuning, and so far on quite thick necks like Strats or some Jacksons I haven't had any issues, but I keep on reading...

    I just picked up this sweet pretty much unplayed RG 1570L with a mint lefty molded J-craft case for $388, even came with the j-craft baggy with arm, truss rod wrench, and allen wrenches. Not a ding on it, no fret wear, it just sat for a while. I told the guy at Daddy's I feel dirty buying it for...

    Hi all, I'm pretty much a guitar noob (stopped playing when I was 14 and am now 20 and wanting to learn all over again. well, wanting to shred. bad.). I picked up a '98 Rg550 which appears to be in perfect condition, body is silky smooth no scuffs or scratches with plastic still on some...

    I just took delivery of a rather neglected RG7421. That's OK, I was expecting to do some work on it, but unfortunately I can't put new strings on yet because 3 of the 7 ferrules are missing. The guitar had been used without those 3 ferrules, and for some bizarre reason there was 3 string...

    I can't find anywhere, what size wrench a Jem takes? I have looked everywhere, the Ibanez site doesn't even have a contact email. Anyways, I know I can get an answer here. I dont know that it matters but my jem is from 1990. I need a truss rod wrench and im not sure what size it is out of these...

    Hi, About a week ago I asked why won't tuning to open D hold on my 0.10 and I was suggested to use 0.11 for lower tunings, and I did that. It's great, but since the Lo-Pro can only hold upto three springs they are rather stretched (what makes the whammy rather stiff) I'm pretty sure that...

    Okay, I may regret this, but I'm thinking about buying a guitar that I've been drooling over for a year or more now. This is a Edwards John Sykes model, basically an LP Custom model with chrome trimmings, it's made by ESP Japan for the Japanese market. I replaced the knobs, pickguard, and...

    So finally, got my first Presitge ever [a post glorifying my guitar will soon follow haha :p] Anyhow, I was inspecting my guitar and I noticed that it stuck out a bit and that there was no possible way in which I could put a wrench in there. Could this perhaps be a cover of some sort or is...
