    ...piss themselves laughing? I constantly see reviews of guitars on dealer sites that complain about how the guitars were set up terribly and the strings were corroded or rusted and that the guitar was the biggest piece ever because of it. It's also kinda sad that these dealers have to take a...

    The first guitar that I have owned and consequentely, the first guitar that I learned on was an old 80s Aria Pro II RS. I've recentely bought an Aria Pro II Mad Axe from the early 90s. Sadly, it's missing the original whammy bar, I'm going to have to track down a gold whammy that fits in the...

    Is it me or is there WAY too much Van Halen posts on here? go to bootlegs, theres a specific section for just Van Halen posts. It's kind of ridiculous. Don't get me wrong, Van Halen is an awesome band, but there is just way too much of their stuff on here. Frankly I think some people just put it...

    Hey guys I just picked this thing up today! Great sustain, solid, beautiful finish and the floyd is just killer! The only problem I have is that for some reason the whammy bar that screws on, the peice that it screws onto rather, the little arm nut for it seems to be loose! To be honest I've...

    Man, ZZTop sucked big time last night at Rock Honors. Its like they've forgotten how to play and don't care anymore if they play sloppy, out of time, and the riffs and solos just weren't played well. All other honorees sounded great, especially Heart & Ozzy.:thumb: One thing that did bother...

    Hey guys I've been having a serious problem with my guitars intonation. Every 2-3 weeks I have to actually take it into the shop just so they can re-intonate the darn thing and today it just crapped out again. I know how the you have to tune everything to the correct standard tuning and then...

    This is just a question I have to all of you...concerning the band Queen. IMO they're one of the finest rock groups ever. For some reason, I don't know weather its their record company or weather its the music buisness on this side of the Atlantic; but I don't think anyone gives Queen or Brian...

    Hey i was just wondering if anyone has listened to them or likes these guys. Death metal isnt really my style but ive got to say they totally kick ass. The keyboards they use just sound beautiful to say the least. Plus almost none of theyre songs are 7-8 minutes long and they are easy to listen...
