    Rickenbacker 360/12 This is a '90s Rickenbacker 360/12 in Midnight Blue with black trim. Sounds incredible, like a Rick should, with some compression and treble boost. I've done the hard work of setting it up with Elixirs (custom set pieced together from a 12-string set and a 9-46 set) and...

    I thought my Barrington looked a bit boring so I rockahammered a pickguard for it! :flex: I really think it works better with the black headstock!

    ...but there's no way I'm getting rid of my Jackson RR24 :flex: I had it away to a local guy for a little fretjob and I gotta say he did a fantastic job. Better than PLEK which I had the guitar sent to first :flex: I knew I didn't really gel with the RR sitting down, but now I dont even like...

    When I was a youngster, there were two guitars in which I was totally in love. One was Kirk Hammett's black ESP - his first one - that I had on a poster on my wall. I think that it was that poster that made me want to play guitar. Anyway, 25 years after putting up the poster, I eventually bought...

    It started with a drunken honeymoon... And then I put it together! Original Floyd Rose, Dimarzio Super Distortion in a black cover. I never realized that "olympic white" was ugly as fuck and kind of mint green, but I would sort that out later... Then I wanted some variaty and added a neck...

    Hi all, I'm new here. I've got a fetish for pointy head stocks and that's kind of led me to this forum. When I was a kid I fell in love with the black Kramer Nightswan Al Pitrelli played on Alice Coopers Trash tour and I've always kept my eye out for a decent original one. However, I've...

    I like Jackson, Ibanez, ESP, whatever. Wouldn't mind something older and Japanese made. Would love an RG550 or 520. Got about $650 USD to work with. Would need it shipped to Alberta, Canada!

    Vintage are a UK brand, making guitars in the far east for super cheap, but they always surpass their price tag by miles. Mr S has their version of an SG which smokes most Gibsons I've played, and since then I've wanted one of their Les Pauls. Fast forward about 7 years, and I finally got one...

    Hi guys, Looking for a new guitar and I'm asking your wisdom to match my specs to an available model. I need; Super Strat shape HSS Config Ebony board Thin neck No Fenders. The most perfect thing I've come across so far is the Caparison Dellinger FX, way too pricey for me though.

    As you guys know, I am looking to get a good superstrat with some flair to compliment my AJC singlecut. I want H/S, bridge type isn't a biggie on this one - if it has a trem, I will learn how to use it! I'm talking to Troy online, and he suggested this: 1. Find a guitar with a nice neck and...

    Hi im new here so thought i would show of one of my projects, This is the end result of a guitar I have been building/refinishing. This is my fourth custom now.

    The title says it all, really. :lol: I've been on a massive 80s metal kick of late, and have started GASsing for something with a Floyd and a revolting colour scheme. BC Rich Gunslinger Retro This certainly seems to fulfill those criteria. I've heard good things about these, and dinstinctly...

    So I needed something to fill the void while my AT is getting refretted. I've always wanted a 1 hum guitar but its never been in the cards, neither has a loud eighties superstrat for that matter. Ken (:wub:) spotted this while he was browsing ebay for basses and convinced me to buy it, those it...
