Decent guitar - top of the line Korean guitar (unless you have a Japanese one - even better) only let down by the sub-par trem but the trem is only an issue if you are an avid trem user. If you are you might want to look into a replacement trem (OFR and FRII will fit right in) but otherwise the guit...

It makes me laugh when people talk about wood for hours and then proceed to plug their custom made wallnut/koa toped guitar into a tripple rectifier with the gain set at 11..... :D Type of wood makes less tonal difference than construction, which makes even less difference than pickups but none of t...

Are you talking about the DiMarzio Clip Lock straps?
If so most music stores stock them.
Googling also works.

Pre AANJ 24 fret necks WILL fit if you cut off the overhanging frets. This has nothing to do with intonation and original Ibanez necks (pre AANJ) will fit right in. In fact you don't have to cut the overhanging frets off to make it fit but they will cover the neck pickup on a fender and that would l...

22 fret necks from pre AANJ S series and old R and P series guitars will fit right in, JS necks will fit right in and pre AANJ 24 fret necks will fit right in but you might have to cut off the 2 overhanging frets off.

AANJ necks won't fit.

This is what I mean - it's mostly hype. The millions you speak of have never owned a Jimi album in their life, they are just repeating the name that everyone else is repeating thus creating hype. On one hand you have a very, VERY creative and very consistent folk/blues/rock band, incorporating the m...

Between these 2 it has to be Page, better songs, proper band environment with an AMAZING rhythm section and with John Paul Jones also very competent on keyboard and acoustic guitar..... Jimi on the other hand had a jam band and jam "songs"..... I seriously for the life of me can't understand why Jim...

Kids..... :roll: People hate and slagg off Kirk because Metallica was one of the biggest bands in the late 80's/early 90's and during the time there were tons of better guitarist that weren't idolised like Kirk was. I mean Kirk is fast but he lacks melody and his note choice is abysmal..... 1. Kirk ...

Steve's used/endorsed every brand of strings under the sky but right now he plays Ernie Ball Super Slinkys 9-42 (pink pack) most of the time although sometimes he would stick Regular Slinkys (dayglo green pack) and I'm sure he uses at least 11's on the tuned down Bad Horsie guitar so there is some c...

Got the album the day it came out and have been listening to it pretty much all the time (apart from when I'm sleeping or listening to Steve's new CD :grin: ) and it's great. Also the album is called The Beekeeper so that reminded me of Steve.... :grin: Too bad about the tickets - some people are sc...
