Re: Ibanez JEM7VWH doesn't comply with Steve's sound quality

I realize I'm a few years too late here... but anyways. I've also got a 2014 JEM 7VWH, with the Edge Pro trem. I notice the warble on the top 3 strings sometimes... I've found the trem arm can contribute to it. So... just based on my experience, if I move the arm down and away from the strings I'm a...

Re: Can this be true???

Yah. It's not like he's working out Yngwie's guitar solos note for note for all the songs. Chord structure... basic riffs... then he just improvises over the top of it -- perhaps Yngwie-like because fans are expecting that (which he has the chops to pull out of his butt... on the fly). pretty much.

You should check your breaker box though... everytime you overdrive your guitar... your lights go dim. :wink:

Nice guitar! Never seen one of those...

I imagine you won't be using your thumb to be doing any fretting on the bass string! :lol:

Beatles Movies are cool too... Hard Day's Night Help! Magical Mystery Tour Yellow Submarine -- we're Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band... Then there's always: The Rocky Horror Picture Show The Phantom of the Paradise and A Star is Born -- with Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson

Re: Loose Edge Trem arm

I used the old Thomas Nordegg flame trick and... it works. yah. pretty much. You've got to keep moving it over the flame... not let it stand on the heat. You want it to heat up a bit and expand... not melt. I've done some welding before so maybe that experience helped a bit.

Re: Chinese Democracy

Well, there are some exciting news (or rumors?) about Axl's effort to get the original line-up back together for a world tour. http://www.news.com.au/dailytelegraph/story/0,22049,24741108-5012327,00.html It would be one of the most fantastic events of 2009.

FWIW... I'm not really diggin' the decal either. Sorry.

If it's on top of the clear coat and could be peeled off (without underlying damage)... that would be cool.

Re: The new hard tail Jem

I thought Steve was going to work on a Jem that could go from trem to fixed mode... Flip a bar or something and "voila" it's fixed bridge... flip it again and it's a floating bridge. At least that is what I gathered from one of Steve's 2005 comments: "The new Jems will probably come with a hard trem...

Re: Jem 20th & Harmonics

Seriously though... I'd think it is prolly an intonation issue. One of the guitars may be a little "out" and you are keeping the same finger placement without getting the same result. 5th, 7th, and 12th frets are pretty forgiving... for 2nd and 3rd frets, your fingers have to be pretty precise in th...
