Re: IBANEZ JEM 555 -- STEVE VAI MODEL

If it is the JEM 555 Jr Model - it's fine but is definately of lesser quality than the 777 models. The guitar is excellent for it's price - although I would be tempted to go for a good second hand 777 rather than a new 555. You may have problems with fret buzz on the 555. This is easily rectified by raising the Floyd Rose slightly if you know what you're doing.

Again - go for a 777.

: : If you have ever owned or played this guitar, did you find any defeciencies or things you did not like about it? If you know things --good or bad about this guitar, please answer.

Re: IBANEZ JEM 555 -- STEVE VAI MODEL

I have a Jem 555 and I'm thinking of buying an original floyd rose low pro tremolo to enhance the tuning problems. Can anybody tell me if I shoud invest some dollars to solve this problem, or the guitar is not worthy of this investment. Thanks

Re: Beginer and i dont know how to change my elec. guitar strings

: I'm in the same boat you are in. I got a Fender Stratocaster with a Floyd Rose Tremolo for Christmas. I broke a string the other day and had to change them today. Changing them was the easy part, the real challenge is when you have to tune it and keep it there. Good luck

: : Try typing Fender paisley guitar into a search engine and see what comes up. You can also try www.musiciansfriend.com to take a look. Supposedly there were only two real "Paisleys" made by Fender. Gary Burton of the Guess Who has one and Jimi Hendrix had the other...so the story goes.

: : Good Luck in your search.

Re: Best Guitarist

: : Hi.
: : I am trying to decide who I think is the best guitarist
: : in the world, but I dont know them all. Therefore I would like to hear your meaning.

Best is subjective to the style played, but some of my favs are Nokie Edwards of the Ventures, Danny Gatton, all the Hellecasters, Mike Bloomfield, Bugs Henderson, Jimi, and Dave Davies of the Kinks.
Cheers, Hoot

Re: Best Guitarist

Steve Vai is the world's greatest guitarist hands down www.vai.com

BEST IS A HUMAN INVENTION. IN THE REAL WORLD, BEST DOESN'T EXIST. IF YOU MEAN MOST POPULAR, COULD BE KEITH RICHARDS.(THEY PROBABLY SOLD MORE RECORDS THAN ANYONE). IF YOU MEAN MOST BIGGEST PRODUCED SOUND, PERHAPS IT COULD BE BRIAN MAY. ERIC JOHNSON ALSO HAS A HUDGE SOUND. IF YOU MEAN MOST DIFFERENT FOR THE TIMES ,MATBE IT WOULD BE JIMI HENDRIX. IF YOU MEAN TAKES A LOT OF PRACTICE TO PLAY LIKE THEM (BECAUSE THEY HAVE A LOT OF TECHNIQUE. PERHAPS IT COULD BE YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, STEVE VAI,JOE SATRIANI,GARY MOORE,ERIC JOHNSON,JEFF BECK,OLD RICHIE BLACKMORE,MICHAEL SCHENKER,JAN AKKERMAN,ROBIN TROWER,LESLIE WEST,Steve Lukather,Eddie Van Halen,Warren DeMartini(RATT), Tony MacAlpine,DANNEY ALKANA(ALBUM ROCK THE BACH),Ronnie Montrose,Steve Morse, Randy Rhodes, John Petrucci,Darrell Abbott.OR DO YOU WANT TO KNOW JAZZ PLAYERS OR CLASSICAL PLAYERS.
ANYWAY, WE CAN LEARN FROM ANYONE. PICK WHAT YOU LIKE BEST. THAT IS THE BEST PLAYER(FOR YOU!)

Re: Best Guitarist

YEA DANNEY ALKANA SMOKES!

Re: Best Guitarist

IF YOUR ANYONE WHO KNOWS ANYTHING ABOUT PLAYING GUITAR, STEVE VAI IS BETTER THAN ANYONE IN THE WORLD, NO QUESTION ABOUT IT. IT'S FUNNY HOW OTHER PEOPLE ON HERE PUT MARTI FREEDMAN AHEAD OF STEVE VAI. STEVE VAI HAS MORE TALENT IN HIS LITTLE PINKY THAN ANY OF THOSE OTHER GUITARISTS MENTIONED. SO IF YOU WANT THE TRUTH GO TO WWW.VAI.COM HE'S THE MAN!

Re: Best Guitarist

There is no clear answer to that question unless you just want to debate the issue. All of these people have a talent and obviously exceptional artists. I mean Chuck Berry known for that unforgettable Johnny B. Goode lead, Clapton which song? Santana which song, I might just plug a guy I knew,as a kid would for a quart of beer could play the star spangled banner behind his back, no it was not Hendrix, and he never went anywhere so it no big deal! I think the greatist guitarist or artists is the one that moves you at the time you listen to them! If there was just one great guitarist, the rest may as well pack up and go home! Peace

Re: Best Guitarist

Eddie van Halen is the best.

Re: Best Guitarist

Best 3:
Eddie Van Halen - The FASTEST guitar player EVER!
Eric Clapton - Slow Hand is unbeatable with an accoustic guitar!
Randy Rhoades - Lead guitar of 1 of the biggest metal bands ever!

Honorable mentions:
Joe Santriani
Kirk Hammet
Noodles
BB King
... many others

Re: Best Guitarist

Hey
Check out steve morse. You probably will not find a better all around guitar player. While many know top guitarist are well know in their feild. No one is more diverse then Steve Morse. Buy a album and see what i'm talking about...good luck with your search...no one else can tell you who the best guitarist.you can decide it on your own,,,

FRANK ZAPPA

YES FRANK ZAPPA,WHO ELSE HAS BOXES OF JUST SOLOS LIKE FZ,THERES NOONE CLOSE

Re: Best Guitarist

Best Guitarist is probably one of the hardest questions asked... When asking you have to determine whether or not they'd be jazz, rock, blues,classical etc.... There is a difference between the most well known, and the most talented. Just because they're famous doesnt mean that nsync is better at singing than Hansi Kursch from Blind Guardian. My preferable listening material is Jimi, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Jimmy Page, and Eddie Van Halen

Re: Best Guitarist

John Petrucci, Steve Vai, Joe Satriani G3
they have the best style, solos, and shows
actually yng has the best show

Re: Unkown Fender Model...

Very Interesting
I have one I call "Drug Deal" I bought it for $35 not because he needed drug money but because he had partied all weekend and needed diaper money on monday

Re: Unkown Fender Model...

I am getting ready to go through mine and electrify it. I will keep yours in mind

Re: Marshall VS100R?

It is a bloody loud amp... Anything louder and you will be going through a PA system so it will be fine. The power dimension switch on mine has never worked properly up untill 2 months ago when I had it specifically looked at (for £60). I have had mine for 6 years and it has been overall excellent. Dust will appear on the valves after a while and it will give a crackling sound each time you turn it on. Make sure you get it serviced say, once a year and it will always be in good working order.

The speaker is great and I have the adjoining extension cabinet which fills out the sound. It is for sales if interested.

Re: Jerry Reed Great Guitarist

: You've got be kidding!! Neither of those mentioned are "great guitarist" Chuck Berry has never progressed past the " 3 chord wonders" for 45 years. He and Jerry Reed are legendary entertainers not great guitarist.

No, my friend, you've got to be kidding!! Have you ever even heard any of Reed's stuff besides "east bound and down" How about the stuff he did with Chet Atkins? I guess you think he sucks too. Maybe your guitar hero is Kurt Nobrain. Try to learn some of Jerry Reed's stuff and then get back to us

Re: Mossman Guitars

: : Does anyone have any idea of what a S.S. Mossman, Great
: : Plains Custom, 1975, Winfield, Kansas might be worth?

: : Thanks.

: a couple years ago a great plains was worth about 1200 for a 75 model, Hold on to it if you have one it is sure to go up over time, as Stuart Mossman has since died and they are now made in sulfer springs tx. New retail for a texas plains model is around 2-3000. Its the same as a great plains. As for worth and price that you could get for it that is realitve to how bad someone wants it, Its as fine of instrument as any martin makes,Mossman just dont have the name or the marketing, hold onto it a winfield mossman is hard to come buy. Or email me if you might ever want to sell it.

I feel very lucky to have a 1974 White Plaines model (I think, as it does not actually say it anywhere). It is initialed on the tag inside the guitar with 14 initials, one of whichj is Stuat Mossmans. I would never part with this instrument! When I play it for guitar lovers they melt. It is so wonderful...
Do you know of anyone in the Chicago area that wood be able to do expert repair on the bridge? It has latley lost some volume and their are grooves in the actual bridge from years of string pressure. Will I mess with it's value if I do repairs?

Thanks!

Rich
