1. Put a capo or physically press down on first fret 2. Press down on last fret, same string 3. Now look under 7th Fret, there should be just enough space to slide a playing card, If you like your neck set-up a little on the "Flat" side, you can take it untill there is no "daylight" under the 7th f...

Measuring/adjusting neck relief...(Prestige, JS 1200)

I think my neck may be a little too straight which may be the culprit behind the buzz when my action is very low...the action is a lot higher at the higher frets than the lower...Do I also need to adjust the nut height? I'm no expert though...how do you measure and adjust the neck relief anyways?

Re: JS 1200 trem and action maintenance etc...

Hey guys, I have my action low at around 2mm low side and 1.8 mm high side...From what I've read at Ibanez Rules, this shouldn't be too much of a problem, but I've noticed when I do any kind of aggressive vibrato, the strings 'clank' together...they shouldn't be touching each other at all should th...

box shapes are irrelavent when talking about modes ;-) And why is that? :? I think box shapes are quite usefull when learning modes. True, they are only variations on the beginning note of the "mother" major, harmonic minor or melodic minor scales, but they still can help you visualize the fingerin...

If your looking for vai/gilbert/dream theater tone. Check out a Marshall TSL60 head. Cheaper than a JSX and with a Boss ds1 in front of it you can get a good range of tones vintage & modern. The only thing is, it wont do death metal or nu metal without a good EQ pedal eg MXR Kerry king. Why would y...

I'm hoping it follows in the tradition of Strange Beautiful Music...I think that is one of Joe's best albums in terms of tones, production, and musicality...the solo from Mountain Song gets me every time...

We all realize that Yngwie is a great guitarist, BUT, it's all about THE SONGS man, & without them, you're either lost in redundancy, &/or, there's an inconsistency in the quality of the compositions. At least that's what I think. :? As music lovers we listen to SONGS, that's how it's been, that's ...
