JEM 20th starts at $7,000, I'm 95% sure of that.

and there's another JEM in there, the 77VBK

well, as long as they keep the JEM7VWH and JEM77BRMR, I'm happy. Wouldn't mind a 777LNG though

I belive that Dream Theater is credited as the creators of Alternative Metal. The best way to discover Petrucci's work is by listening to ANYTHING by him. He's got some AWESOME Dream Theater stuff (listen to "This Dying Soul" and the whole album "Metropolis") and his solo work is pretty good too (I'...

wow, i appreciate everyone's class towards my opinion. I'm not placing vai in the same corner as malnsteem. That is truly "notes." There's no other word for it, just "notes." By neo-classical, I was referring to the scales he uses. If you took away his distortion, effects, and just about everything ...

I'm partially afraid to respond to this, as I may be up against a bunch of fanboys who won't listen to reason. Before you start flaming me, hear me out and consider this an opinion. Personally, I somewhat agree with your teacher, but not as extreme. Vai is good. Vai is amazing. He can play a million...

If you want THE best, go with an analog tape delay. That'll give you the purest and the best delay. I believe these cost around $500, correct me if I'm wrong. The GREATEST alternative would be either the Boss DD-6 and DD-3, $160 and $110 respectively on Musician's Friend. I personally have a Zoom G2...

I actually suggest that you do either of the following: 1. Let the wood filler set, THEN drill the hole as if you had never made the hole the wrong size; it's like a fresh start. 2. Put the wood filler in, and while it's wet, let the screw set in the wood filler. This may not be as stable as the cho...

Ladies and gentlemen, I have GREAT NEWS! Info on the 20th anniversary JEM. I actually just heard about it, from a guy at my local guitar shop who's actually sponsored by Ibanez I think... But anyway, here's what I've heard: -The guitar will have an acrylic finish. If you don't understand that, THE G...
