    Hey everyone - been a little slow to post lately. We added a couple of cool Ibby's to the "house" collection this year. I found a cool RT452 12 string near mint & mislabeled at GC, stole it, and I traded an artist I work with in Germany for his 8.5/10 RG770DXvm. Sweet guitar - I'd pop it in the...

    As I may have mentioned, I'm a very active collector of all things guitar - but I'm also the General Manager of Reverend Guitars, a manufacturer based out of the Detroit area. Here's a model that Joe Naylor designed along with Reeves Gabrels of Tin Machine/David Bowie fame. We've been working...

    Didn't know where to post this since it has Jem/UV content, other Ibanez guitars, as well as other manufacturer's guitars as well. Counting them, most fall under "Other Ibanez Guitars" so here goes: From left to right (on the couch first) 1. Ibanez RD707WH Bass 2. Ibanez Jem7RB, custom alder...

    Just wondering if there are any Carvin fans in here? I think they make some of the best quality guitars and especially necks around. To this day my Bolt Plus guitar has the best playing/feeling neck i`ve ever seen. Any love for Carvin?

    Hm. I have this wacky idea of using a SA160QM body for a project, but I wanna know the trem post distance, cause I wanna get a wilkinson trem for my body.. Anyone know if a Wilkinson trem (like on Carvins) would be a direct replacement? Or anyone know where I can get a SA160QM body?? lol Thanks.

    Is this possible without routing? I've read conflicting comments regarding installing a floyd on a strat. Some say there's no need for routing, others say it has to be done. Are the stud widths the same? I'm really digging the style of the Iron maiden strats, and I'd be willing to try the...

    I love its looks, the pickup options and I am thinking of getting a slightly used Carvin DC400 Anniversary with a Wilkinson trem, stainless steel frets, gold hardware, a nice sunburst maple top, matching headstock and probably some other options I am now forgeting... Apart from its great looks...

    I have a Surf green (MIM) 1999 '57 Stratocaster. I love the feel, and the maple 'v' neck, and the tone is good...but the stock pickups make that "noise". I would like a good replacement set (all 3) for this guitar that keep the Strat-Fender tone but have more flexibility toward humbucker-like...

    Looked in archived topics for this... found lots of conflicting advice. I'm 'buidling' an RG570... (no I'm not planning on painting it white and trying to call it a JEM) Here's what I have so far... 2000 model RG570 Rootbeer body/ Edge routing and wiring intact, RG550 Black pickgaurd...

    I am undecided between Gibson LP and PRS standard satin 22. I like the LP tone and burst but scale is too short for me and neck is not very comfortable. PRS wide thin neck is easier to play and not much different from Ibanez. They are about the same price range. What do you guys think?

    For sale, 1993 Starfield. Light blue, three single coil pickups, Wilkinson trem, excellent condition. There is one chip in the paint at the neck joint and a few dents in the paint but you can really only see them in just the right lighting. I tried capturing them in the photos. Comes with...

    I'm selling my Gibson EDS 1275 and Ibanez RG550 20th anniversery to fund a Carvin DC127. I have 3 questions that you guys can hopefully answer. 1) What's the difference between their "matte satin" and "tung oil" finishes? 2) Since the guitar is neck-thru, will having a maple neck make it sound...

    Not sure if I should post it here, since far from all the guitars are prestige, forgive me if I'm doing wrong. I did send some shots of my new home studio to Nuno (Ibanez87.it guy) the other day. One was a picture were you could see the wall were some guitars are hanging, and he asked if I...

    Right, i've read the posts i found but couldn't seem to find this out. If i put Steinberger Gearless Tuners on my Ibanez, could it replace the locking nut? which would be better? Cheers, Josh

    I'm putting together a custom guitar and the trem route the builder can do for me is either Schaller or Original Floyd Rose, both recessed. Will a Gotoh fit either of these, and is the Gotoh any good? What are some other top of the line trem units other than the obvious Ibanez ones. Also...

    Up for sale is a modified SX SST57 strat. It is only a month or so old, and hasn't seen too much use. I modified it with parts from Guitar Fetish. I replaced the plastic nut with a graphite one, the stock pickups with a GFS overwound strat set, and I replaced the bridge with a black Wilkinson...

    Artcores are great...well, most of them. Today, in a sudden gas attack, I bought the $300 sunburst artcore (es-335 look-a-like...not sure of the #). WHY?! I dont know. I dont even like hollowbodies. Im trading it in for a strat tomorrow. Anyone had any similar experiences? If I hadnt blow 300...
