    When you chip you new guitar..

    Broke my heart to find a chip in my 5 month old Ibanez prestige. Always a sad day the first time you ding it a new guitar

    Best 9v batteries??

    I seem to go thru a lot of 9v batteries on my 6 and 7 string guitars. Both guitars have Fishman fluence active pups and I use Energizer Max batteries. I'm wondering if rechargeable is the way to go. I've seen the charger packs, but wonder if they are any good or not. I also saw that there's...

    Pickup height question

    Was looking at my guitar today and noticed a significant height difference between my bridge and neck pickups. The bridge PU sits about a 1/4 inch higher than the neck PU and is slightly loose, looks like the screws aren't all the way tightened down. I think your supposed to be able to adjust...

    Guitars going out of tune

    I have a Inanez prestige R121 tuned down to D and a Jackson 7 string tuned down to G#. It seems like everytime I pick either one up, click on my tuner and check the tunings they are both way sharp. The Ibanez has Gotoh locking tuners and the Jackson has stock tuners, which aren't as nice as the...

    Ibanez 5121 Prestige string gauge size for dow ntuning

    I'm wondering what the ideal string gauge sizes would be for down tuning my Ibanez 5121 Prestige to C#. Stock strings seem a but flubby on the bottom two when I've tuned it down. I'm also wondering if i switch to thicker strings, will it affect my ability to tune back up to E standard??

    Erik Rutan BC Rich Ironbird 7

    I'm sure no one has this guitar as it is $7300, but on the off chance that someone does, is it worth it??? I'm a HUGE cannibal & Rutan fan but I dont think I would ever pay that much for it personally. I honestly never even knew Rutan played a 7 until I saw that guitar.

    When buying individual pickups...?

    When buying individual pickups, do they have to be specifically a bridge or a neck pickup? Or are they interchangeable. Most individually sold pickups I see dont specify whether they are for the bridge or neck. It makes sense to me that the way you wire it would be what determines if its a neck...

    Better to learn on a 6 before 7?

    I've been playing my 7 string guitar for about a year and a half as a complete beginner. I've gotten better over time but I'm starting to wonder if I should be learning on a 6. I find that 95% of the songs i try and learn are written for the 6. I know that I should be able to play any 6 string...

    Noise gate for boss kat50?

    Wondering if you can put an actual noise gate pedal in to the front of the amp or the fx loop and use it with tone studio? I'm not a huge fan of the noise suppressor. In general, kinda wondering if you can use pedals in conjunction with tone studio or does it have be "either, or" the only...

    Best all around tuner for the money

    I've been using guitartuna to tune and it seems to work ok for B standard but they dont have anything else except Drop A for 7s. I need to get a better all around tuner, but I dont know which one would best, clip on? Pedal? I'd hate to spend too much money on a tuner, so anything over $100 I'm...

    I'm having a bit of trouble getting a good death metal tone. I haven't played with the built in effects yet. I've been using a metal core ML2 distortion pedal/noise suppressor pedal/amp on clean signal chain. My tones seem to all sound dogshit

    Are locking tuners worth it?

    I am just wondering if upgrading tuners will really make that big a difference in holding a guitar in tune. I have a Jackson js22 7 and Im pretty sure the tuners are Gotoh style. They seem to hold tune ok. Might be slightly off tune each time I pick it up but not too far. Probably wouldn't go as...

    Should I upgrade my Jackson JS22?

    I have a Jackson js22 and I've been debating on if it is smarter to upgrade it or just buy a guitar that has everything already on it. Ideally I'd like to put FF Modern pickups(maybe only the bridge) and gear ratio tuners on it at the very least. Still debating if I should put an Evertune...
