Is there any electric guitar you can't use for metal, if you throw on the right pedals (overdrive, distortion, etc.)? My amp has this high gain/distortion setting that makes every guitar I plug into...

Fret problem on vintage guitar -- can I fix just one fret or do I need to refret all?

I recently got what appears to be a 60s MIJ electric guitar for about $100. I think it's probably made by whoever made Teisco guitars.

The problem is that the 7th fret is "dead" at the high e...

+1 for Agile, I have one of their Les Paul copies (AL-3100M), and it's amazing. Not sure what their guitars with tremolos are like, though.
