    How About Some Ibanez Love - Most Underrated? Let’s See Yours

    My Musician was an amazing bass, a factory fretless, DS940. I've thought about replacing it but the pricing and the age of the electronics are putting me off- mostly the pricing, tbh. I understand it, i just can't afford it. ;) The Roadstar IIs I have are unusual in that they're five strings...

    'Coolest' guitar that you own

    I always operate under the premise that nothing about me is, would, or could be cool. Then I relax and play some of my guitars, which all look pretty sweet.

    Your favorite budget strat pickups?

    When I got my main Strat, used, I figured I'd just live with the pickups in it before I made any changes. After a while of thinking they sounded really good at all settings, I relented and opened up the guitar to determine what were these really amazing, balanced and just good sounding pickups...

    Replacement neck vs de-fret to make a fretted guitar into a fretless guitar

    On the fretted bass I made fretless, I used a fret puller to remove the frets and then replaced the frets with maple, which contrasts well with the ebony 'board on that bass. It's held up well for over 20 years. I used simple wood glue, then when dry I used a sharp chisel to pare the maple...

    Replacement neck vs de-fret to make a fretted guitar into a fretless guitar

    I de-fretted a Squier Strat neck about a decade ago, it's held up okay. I played only a fretless bass for a long time, and de-fretted a 24 fret Ibanez bass before I did the guitar neck. If you do it, look into compression fretting and how removing frets can affect the curve of the neck. It's...

    Strat Re-fret cost?

    Sure. A comparison of pricing for ss and nickel could be good.

    Strat Re-fret cost?

    I have a RW 'board Strat that needs a re-fret. 21 frets, looking for nickel not SS. What's a typical price?

    How Many Stratocasters Do You Own?

    I have four, and parts for another in the works. All are Strats but all feel and sound different enough that they're still here.

    Does the current state of the economy mean Fender and Gibson are going into a new dark age?

    I can imagine Gibson becoming more like Ric, making fewer models and increasing demand for their instruments. I can imagine Fender cutting a model line or two. I can imagine both companies, and others, continuing to raise prices. But, I could be imagining things.

    Stainless Steel Fret Convert

    My main Strat has amazingly flat frets and needs new ones. but I think I need to play a couple guitars with SS frets for comparison- haven't played any, so don't know pros/cons for myself. Otherwise I'll probably stay with trad fret material, I don't play that hard.

    That feeling when you have nice guitar, but crappy amps/effects due to living an apartment

    I have a Katana 50 and find the scalable output to be super helpful when volume is a concern- although it's kind of amazing how loud .5 of a watt can be. :D
