Awesome aren't they?! I actually really like the stock pickups, I had some experience of playing V7/V8 pickups and wasn't keen on those (not knocking them, just my thoughts), but the DiMarzio/Ibz ones I actually like much more than I expected to like them. I bought it for a variety of styles, but mo...

Edge Pro trem maintenance.

Hi, I've ordered an Ibanez RG2620 and it's just arrived in the store today. The thing is, it's my first guitar with a Floyd Rose type of trem system. I know that you can explain to people how to set up things, but there's nothing like actually seeing it, so I was just wanting to know if there are an...

Any prices? Could it be possible to get one in the UK?

I'm not keen on the pickups but those can easily be changed. The rest of the specifications make it seem quite tasty! Love the finish.

I actually forgot to say how great I thought Eric Sardinas was as well. I was a bit late for his set (having thought the venue was going to open at seven rather than half past six, that'll teach me to check the times on the ticket as well). I don't think I missed much of it though and his set was fa...

I really, really enjoyed the show. I was front row centre as well, next to NantucketSleighrider, just like I was queueing up for tickets in the first place! Cheers for the sip of Eric's beer, I was parched! I missed out on seeing the band but since I was knackered and still had a drive home ahead of...

Just to clear up, I knew you were joking about the Billie Joe Armstrong comment, but believe it or not, you do hear it! You are of course right... although I'm not sure about enjoying all of the diversity of women! I mean, each one man can only handle so much! Take that Def Leppard song, 'Make Love ...

First off, Joe Satriani is my favourite guitar player, but through that you still have to see that no one guitarist is a master of everything. In 'technical' terms, what I've noticed about Joe is that he actually can do some nifty alternate picking, I'm not saying he's as skilled at alternate pickin...

Jimi Handrix - Fantastic rhythm player.. no comments :roll: Grr! Typos! Come on, don't tell me you've never done one! :P I was having one of those days. When you consider I even screwed up typing his name on here, you can imagine how awful my attempt at 'Little Wing' later in the day sounded. You m...

Joe Satriani - I just slightly prefer his music to Vai's. If I'm listening to both, because Vai is more diverse I find he maintains my interest for a longer period, but I'm more impressed with Joe's songwriting consistency - I just think he has a knack for putting his talents towards helping his ear...

I've also heard that the Bad Horsie JEMs can crack like mirrors as well with the finish, but while no-one who has one is likely to be smashing them off the walls of their house, has anyone noticed it to crack/scratch easier, or is this just nonsense?

Do these pickups still cut through mixes for lead parts like the original Evolution pickups do? If they do they sound flawless from what's being said here.

If the scale length is the same, the frets are positioned in the exact same place, from one brand guitar to the next. I suppose... Maybe I just had a cack-handed day when I checked out the RG Prestige 2620. I hadn't really warmed up properly before trying some of the tricky stretching stuff I try o...

My mistake, sorry for the misunderstanding there, it was the space of the frets I meant rather than fret wire size. Thing is, I have a guitar that's 25.5" scale, 22 frets, but the fret spacing feels fine. I played that Ibanez RG Prestige, with a 25.5" scale and this time 24 frets, but it felt like t...

RG Prestige with smaller frets than jumbo?

Hi, I've been drooling over the RG 2620 CBL recently but after getting the chance to play one, I started out to play Tears In The Rain and found the five fret stretch to be an absolute nightmare, which it normally isn't on the guitars I play and wasn't when I attempted the same song on a JEM. Other ...

You can always score your plectrums as well, I remember being told that that was what Dimebag did to make his picks 'sweatproof' and sure enough, when I did it I found it helped. Something to consider also is the type also of pick you use, whether it has a glossy finish or a matt finish on it. I use...
