    I have a rg 550ex, working fine...but i just love that Steinberger looks...since i can't afford any Stein US model, I would consider Spirit... I can't afford buying another guitar, so i would have to sell the RG first...(i would even have some money left, since spirit is cheaper...!)...i am...
  2. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    tried one position first, it was a little better, but not perfect... so i tried one more... and it was perfect... i basically changed the balance of the guitar when i'm wearing the strap... now it sits at more of an upward angle where it used to sit basically flat... it also moved it over a few...

    I myself have (only?) 8 electrics. When I started out I had ONE guitar, a 78 Stratocaster with a hum & a Floyd and that was enough for me for many years. I never looked at or for other guitars. (This was pre-internet BTW). Now I have all of these guitars, 3 of which are RG 550's yet I really...

    Hi there, just curious what the finish is on the RGT series? Is it painted, oiled, satined? Is there any graphiute rods or anything in there to make the neck more stable? If in fact they ARE painted like I assume, then a person would likely wanna sand off the finish and oil it (I hate...

    Since I am selling my Jackson Soloist, I went out and picked up a RGT3120TDB today. I went out with the determination that I was either coming home with a JEM7VWH or the RGT3120. After test driving both for quite some time, I settled on the RGT3120. Believe it or not I was more comfortable...

    I'm looking to get an ibanez guitar... I was looking into the RG570. How is this guitar with changed pickups? What are some Jems that might are good? Should I go for neck-through or bolt-on? Is there much difference? I play 80's metal and Prog rock like Dream theater. I don't want to spend too...

    I got a call from my rep today asking me which Ibanez models from their past they should reproduce. I mentioned the JEM swirl and Satriani guitars, but told him I'd ask around to see what other people thought. Apparently they're thinking about digging into their past and re-issuing some models...

    I'm going to get a JEM7VWH. Should I wait for the 2003 model, or go buy the current one? ie... is the new trem better? or just different? EDIT: or should I get a PRS McCarty or Custom 24 instead? I just saw how much cheaper they are. I'm still swaying towards the JEM.

    Once again I'll start with all due respect to all the Jackson lovers out there, especially because one of them is my close friend ! Well I was thinking about how a couple of weeks ago, I picked up a Kelly for the first time. Strumming some power chords went fine but when I tried some runs near...

    8) Does anyone happen to have pics they can post of Jackson Crop Circle inlays or know where I can find them on the web? I've heard they look amazing.

    the guitar is a standard high quality guitar with not very appealing aesthetics, limited upper fret neck access, and a terrible trem...other than it being one of the few 7 strings with piezos on the market, why are they so sought after and expensive?

    I'm planning to sell my Dean doubleneck (7/6-string), which has been my "Les Paul" for a few years. It sounds awesome and it's a good guitar, but I haven't found much use for the 7-string neck and it's very heavy, so it's the guitar I seldom pick up these days (I usually grab my 1989 Ibanez...

    I don't know which one is more high-end. In the store in my town we have a special (with no tone knob) which plays real nice...and I kind of like the one-knob setup. So which one of these would you recommend? The only picture of the finish I could really find was on the front page of the EVH...

    This is the only Ibanez James Byrd has left from his endorsment days (86-1992ish). What model shape is this called, looking for some more info on it for me to add to Byrd's website. The neck is scalloped and I had a chance to play it when I stayed at Byrd's in June. Its plays remarkbly well...

    Here's a lil story for y'all to read. I went to the big city (calgary,alberta) for a week and i decided to trade in my guitar on a new one. I was very unassure which model I wanted to get, but I have always wanted a Soloist. Anyhow, I played plenty of guitars including new Jem's, JS1000's...
