    I've got most of the parts kicking around to put together a beater RG, but I'm short a trem, and was wondering if I could get away with something cheap if I'm just going to have it permanently blocked? The body is routed for an Edge Pro, so suggestions of something cheap and easy to get would...

    Well I finally have a 5150. Does that mean im becoming an old man now? and I know this technically isnt a "block letter" since it has eddie's signature and it is a "script letter," but I normally refer to the Mark I 5150 as the "block letter." So Story Time: I got the itch for a 5150 and put...

    I've been in a writing funk lately and finally snapped out of it over last weekend. I wrote most of these riffs here and there over a few years while a couple were written on the spot last weekend. Writer's block sucks but it definitely feels good to snap it. I used an Ibanez TAM10 8 string...

    Just scored an insane deal at a pawn shop on a Prestige with an Edge Zero. The guitars seen better days and needs a couple of parts, namely the one in the title... anybody got one? It's missing the trem arm too if you have one knocking around? I can only find a pack of 12 of the fuckers for...

    Quilter Amps $599. Not bad, for an American made, tiny little amp.

    After the grandiose victory of successfully blocking my Jackson RR24 to a rock solid DIVE ONLY metal machine, I decided to for like the millionth time try to block my loyal and trusted Warmoth Superstrat. I've had this trouble before, but I've never really understood the reason, but now I do...

    A while ago I superglued these screws so they wouldn't come loose, but now I fucking NEED to get the block off!!! I'm going to put together a partscaster for a guy in town and I suggested my leftover Gotoh Floyd (with a "Frankenbar" since the old broke at the screw tip), but it's going to be a...

    Like it says on the box, I need a 42mm trem block. Figured I'd see if anyone here has one lying in a parts drawer or something. There's nowhere to get one locally and it's annoying me. I have my Fernandes Rhoads that needs to be playable as its a crime having it sit there unusable. I've done...

    It's Jumanji! http://www.slashfilm.com/jumanji-reboot/ Yes, because as if the first one was great enough, they have to come back and (most likely) fuck it up for generations to come. How are they going to top Robin Williams?

    I love my RG7, but I could tell it had something inside that needed to get out. I loved the look of the plain oiled mahogany but there where a few tweaks I have been needing to do to make it truly my own axe. First I love single coils, just not in my metal guitar and especially in the middle...

    Of course it isn't. This is: Look at this thing. it's completely mint! It was bought by a collector when they first came out, who "had it set up", then locked it away for 20 years and never played. What a total waste. I think people who buy purely to collect are dickheads. I have a...

    With my Elysian RG7621 nearing completion, I'm finding it hard to justify keeping this. I've added: a white dimarzio Cliplock, Elysian Vintage Overwound 7 pickups with coil split, orange drop capacitor, tone is bypassed unless tone knob is pulled, and then acts like normal, I added pearloid...

    Ibanez® Style : Ibanez® EDGE Z Brass Tremolo Block It's a little late to the party considering that Ibanez just recently phased out the ZPS system but it's a good option nonetheless. Especially considering how tiny the stock zinc block is.

    This is pretty cool... Gliffy - Online Diagram Software and Flowchart Software A free account will get you 5 diagrams. All I needed right now was one, to work out how I'm going to connect-up my PA for my band's acoustic shows, but it was super easy to use, and I may use it again :yesway:

    Rand Paul threatens to block Yellen nomination vote - Oct. 30, 2013 One, Yellen is actually a good pick for the job - she has an exceptional record as an economic forecaster, and her nomination was widely lauded by the markets, a rarity for Obama. Two, Rand Paul is a fucking asshole who's...

    I'm currently pondering fitting a big brass block to my alder RG. Any suggestions for where best to buy, remembering that I'm in the UK? I'd also like to stick a tremol-no on that guitar since I love the one on my other guitar. Anyone got any experience or recommendations for this? Do I need...

    Hello, I used to have a 5150 Sig series but I sold it and when I found a Block letter for 400 at a pawn shop I jumped on it. It has all the original tubes from when it was made. My issue is, it just doesn't seem to get loud enough and I can't remember what I had to turn my sig series too. I...
