    An Australian Fender dealer has revealed that the guitar maker is planning to phase out the use of ash for most of its instruments. We reached out to Fender, who have confirmed the plans. The reasons cited for the move are environmental, with climate change and a destructive pest threatening ash...

    Hi guys, this might be another case of "man up, bitch", but I sincerely wonder: how do you guys cope with playing guitars with binding (especially les pauls, flying v's, but any others as well) live? I acquired an Ibanez VBT 700 (discontinued model from 2008) just for the heck of it, played it...

    Damnit, these are awesome :lol: Warmoth Custom Guitar Parts - Classic Showcase Maybe not $999 for just the body, but still cool!

    There's always tons of cheap Jackson dinky bodies on Ebay and I wonder if a Musicraft 24 fret neck will fit these perfectly?? Does the holes match up as well??:ugh:

    I've checked out the ones on eBay(Mai-guitars and a couple others have a few on there) but is there any other place I could be looking for one? Got the urge for something gaudy. :lol:

    Some dude is selling this on the 80s Kramer facebook group for $100. Saw it last night. Since you have two compatible necks on less fabulous bodies, I am pretty sure it would be a crime if you didn't get this.

    Here's my new 1983 Kramer Focus 2000. Credit for the abysmal photo quality goes to today's shitty weather that prevented me from taking pictures outside. Since my current lead-playing style involves constant string bending that stresses my left hand, I've been wanting a shredder...

    So I'm brainstorming a bit - would these old pianos that are free on craigslist all day long be good candidates for reclaiming some wood for guitar bodies and necks?

    With the sad news that Area 51 Customs are closing down I've bagged myself a couple of bodies while I can. Zack's customer service has been excellent, with lots of communication and a quick dispatch time. They showed up Tuesday and are really 1st rate. First up is an Ash Jem-style 7 string...

    I'm selling off a bunch of guitars to fund a new (or used) Ibanez but I want one that has the really thin bodies. When I'm looking at these online is there a way to tell which ones have the real thin body? I think most have the input jack on the front but is that a for sure way to tell? Budget...

    Genuine Fender Necks & Bodies | Fender® Guitar & Bass Parts Interesting. Not quite competitive with Warmoth price-wise, and with far fewer options, but nevertheless interesting.

    So, what is your opinion on chambered bodies? How does it effect the tone?
  20. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    I can't afford this guitar yet, but I'm really considering it and would almost surely switch out the EMG 81/89 set for a passive humbucker in the bridge position and a humbucker-sized P90 in the neck. It's got two chambers and one of those nifty cutouts over one of them, as well as a Fishman...
