The piano tuning we use these days is "stretched" (also called equal temperament) by as much as +- 30 cents for the lower and higher keys. Idealy the so called Pythagorean tuning should be the norm (and it is when it comes to guitar tuning) but as precise as that should be - if you tune to it - thir...

The Feiten "system" is no system at all. All you need is to file a bit of fretboard so you can move your nut 0.08mm (0.03") closer to the bridge. and then tune and intonate as folows _______open___12th fret E_______00______00 B______+01______00 G______-02_____+01 D______-02_____+01 A______-02______0...

Because on a rear routed guitar that has a reflective top you need a clear pickguard to see the whole beauty of the reflective surface.
For reference check 77GMC, 77PMC, 77FP, 77BFP and 2KDNA

These are like Banjo tuners so next time you go to a music store have a look at a banjo to see the idea behind them.

It's on the neck plate and the neck plate will also say JEM and Made in Japan.
Anyway - the guy bought it and it's a real GMC.
Some people have all the luck in the world.

All 77 were backrouted and all backrouted jems were designated 77 (apart from the 2K DNA) The 77's never had the V(vine)/P(pyramid)/D(dot) as a first letter of their designation My best guess is that 77BRCH stands for something like Black Reverse Chrome or Black Reflective Chrome NAMM is only 2 mont...

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you - didn't realise these were dicontinued. If that ebay thing doesn't work out - email this guy. He gets these from the same factory that makes the real Korean Ibanez line and I know it's not officialy an Ibanez but if they don't offer you an alternative ...........

It is very heavy and cynical but that's just my style. I don't know of any educated and classically trained musicians that play a left handed instrument and I know a few. Chuck Mangione alone should show you that determination is the only ingredient you need - that and the chance that whoever pays f...

The ONLY reason there are left handed guitars is that the electric guitar became the most popular instrument ever and most players are not musicians. There is no such thing as a left handed grand piano. No left handed trumpet, saxophones, violins or any other serious instrument has ever been made in...

Add $100 on the current 7BDK price and you're there.
Also from what I hear the new model # is Jem77BRCH (backrouted judging by that 77). :wink:

Steve is too busy to teach so the short answer here is no, he doesn't tech music or guitar anywhere.

To me The Ultra Zone is Steve's best album to date.
I'm not going to analize why, music is an art form and art is about emotions so my heart goes out to UZ every time.
