    Im currently gassing for this:


    It just isnt right though. What do you guys think, is it a decent guitar or is it not worth the pain and misery?

    Go for it! Hey, I can barely play three chords, and I still GAS for geetars!

    I have a SG, a Seagull Folk, and a Sigma 12; I would love a Martin 000-15S, a metal-bodied resonator, and a Tele.

    I want an Ibanez JS1000. I think I would be happy then.
  5. IF i would get a guitar it would have to weigh about 3 pounds, and have a floyd rose.
  6. That Schecter (?) has a beautiful finish and they are put together really well. I might find the inlay a little much - with guitars I think about how it will look in 20 years. I wonder if the "tats" on it will look soo turn of the century...but maybe it's just cool forever.
  7. That's actually an Ibanez.

    Looks nice enough if it's not too expensive. I like the carved top and through-body string. Looks very similar to a Custom Shop Schecter I had once. :bawl: I miss that guitar!
    My current guitar G.A.S. is a 68-72 Les Paul Custom in black with LOTS of wear, original frets, and possibly a broken headstock, if repaired right. I found a '71 today at a great price, but it was a re-fret, so it didn't have those almost flat frets like the originals. I want a "fretless wonder". It also was too clean. I want one with a good bit of wear.

    Its actually an Ibanez SX, its a copy of a PRS if you cant tell. I think its also one of the only Ibanez's with a string thru body. Its advertised in the local magazine for $1095AUS, about 750US.

    Nah, i gotta get more bass gear before i go out schpending big on guitar stuff. Pretty cool inlay aswell :D

    I was playing around with my guitarist Josh's Ibanez RG7420 (7 string), and that gave me a guitar bug.

    He was cool enough to lend/give me his RG120 for screwing around on. Needs new strings, the jack needs to be resolded, and a saddle for the high E, but that'd all run me all of $30, and I'd have a kick ass little guitar to shred with.

    Probably gonna string it from B to B.

    GAS wise, I'd love an Ibanez RG7420 like his, or a Schecter A-7

    I have an RG ibanez guitar from a friend, that also needs a jack, a new high e saddle, and a pickup switch. Can you buy individual saddles?

    I imagine so. or should have them.

    Probably listed at replacement saddles for Fender or some such. It's a standard saddle, so I think any one of a similar nature would work.

    Kirbs, you're in Melbourne right?

    I played with a guitarist on Sat who had a guitar made my a Melbourne Based company (Belari I think. I can find out for sure later). It made his spare guitar - a Les Paul - sound like a toy. Like the PRS it's got 2 humbuckers which can also be split into single coils, so it's effectively a LEs Paul and a Strat in one guitar.

    I have no idea how much they are but he did say it was cheaper than the Les Paul. I'm interested to see their Bass guitar offerings.

  16. I can play a few chords, but I still like playing guitar because you don't have to play chords to come up with stuff :D

    The company I was talking about is called BELMAN. Click here to visit their website. Looks like my mate Luke had and "Albatros" model with a flame maple body and a greeny finish. I was beautiful.

    I'm gassin for an old Kramer or something similar. Nice 'I just paid a hundred bucks for this piece' type vibe.

    Bah. I don't like Ibanezesezes in general. I understand your pining for a guitar, though. My advice is this: Try a PRS Santana SE. I played one briefly, and I've never wanted a guitar so bad. Even though they are remarkably affordable, I can't afford one at the moment. If I could, however, I would get one of those. Give it a shot. ;) It should come in at least $200USD less than the Ibanez.

    Ive seen a few PRS' here in oz, but never played one. They're always sealed off in music shops with the kirk hammett signature ESP. I understand why, because the cheapest guitar in tat area of the shop is worth $3799...:meh:
