    Signature Guitars - Story, Post yours

    In the early 90' I ordered a Jem FP, because I liked Vai and the way this particular model looked. After a looong wait, it came in the shop along with a whole bunch of other guitars. When I finaly put my hands on it, I was really disapointed as it was bad intonated, setted, etc. Then I tried...

    I'm a guitar player, not very tall, and I have some difficulties to play the jazz bass I have at home due to it's looong neck. Do you think a short scale bass would be a good idea ? I mean, does these instruments can sounds like a normal bass in a mix ? Which model or brand to look at ? Thanks

    I love the telecaster sound, but not so much the guitar by itself. What is the most important element of the tone ? Pickups, size, body shape, wood... ? And then, what would be a good other choice ?

So, I think to pair it with a...
