  1. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    This is NOT a production pickup, before anyone gets excited - I'd wanted one forever and got excited when I saw a few on endorser guitar spec sheets, emailed Dimarzio, but they wouldn't do it. However, one of these popped up for sale for only marginally more than a regular Dimarzio would go for...

    I found this jazzmaster fender that apparently is from the year 1962 among some acquaintances, unfortunately I am not an expert in recognizing guitars of those years, will anyone know if it is really original?
  3. General Music Discussion
    ... I imagine this will get messy, however, from my recent interactions with various members on this forum, it appears to be a great place to seek advice. I prefer those answering to be seasoned musicians from working bands or having played in bands performing original music. If you wish to...

    The live debut of "Purple Rain" that was edited down to the album version. Truly historic.

    I've still got the original pickguard, and after seeing some pics of stock ones recently I realise how much I dig that colour scheme... ORIGINAL HOW IT IS CURRENTLY That original pic isn't mine... I never actually used mine with the stock Dimarzios. In fact, this is what I did to mine when...

    So I am looking to offload my 5150. This served me well but I am looking at changing my rig while I am laid up with a broken arm. I've never gigged with this and as far as I can tell it's never been gigged but I don't know that for sure. I do not know how old the tubes are but I did have it...

  11. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Hi, just looking for opinions since I saw this on sale locally. The weird thing seems to be the neckplate, it doesn't look like the old carved-in Ibanez neckplates I've seen on other RG550. Weird. Also pricewise it's $600USD (or $800CAD :rant: )

    A friend of mine showed me these guys tonight. I've watched loads of their videos, and it's all just absolutely brilliant. They've had various lineups, with the guitarist being the only consistent member, but everyone who plays with them is insane. The cool thing is, unlike most of these sorts...
  15. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    I've had this guitar since I was a kid. I haven't played the guitar in a while and wanted to do something to freshen it up and make it interesting again. Not everyone remembers the Ibanez EX, and it was a lower-end model, but I always loved the sharp-but-rounded shape to it which was a unique...

    Any other appreciators of this fine style? I've been on the biggest kick lately. And because Candlemass's cover of this DNR classic rules even harder than the already legendary original.
  17. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    I'm already going to part with my VGC original 1999 rg7620 and I was wondering what I could expect to get from it. It's not that I'm in desperate need for money just giving up on 7 strings,I can't play them and can't get them set up right. The guitar is black and is in immaculate...

  20. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Some guy was clearing out a stack of old gear he hadn't used in 20+ years so I bought 5 pedals from him. First an Aria Diamond Wah. Classic Japanese 70s wah. Second, a block logo MXR Dynacomp. I was thinking of getting one of these for a while for my cleans. Third, an original script logo...
