Dude, "because the used 214 is made in the USA". Really?

El Cajon CA is about 20 miles from Tijuana Mexico. Same Mexicans, different country.

If you have anything near an actual 1cm string height at the 12th fret, and the saddle has already been sanded down, it's time for a neck reset, period.

The chairs in a big city orchestra for guitarists are few and very far between.

Regardless of ability, I'm certain there's a lot of, "it's not what you know, it's who you know", going on.

I can't picture that standard tuning is all that terribly useful for too much beyond the melody, (solo if you prefer).

When you consider a triad, (major or minor), can have a maximum of 3 strings in...

Scalloped bracing, Dude really?

Well Chris, 1st, the plugged in performance of Ibanez A/E guitars isn't in question. In fact, as I pointed out, they seem to be tuned to just that end. I have an AEL10, (all lam jumbo) which really...

My two cents says, that a mom & pop operation is going to have to charge more for "X" guitar, than a large online Etailer. That's to be expected. However, I'm also inclined to believe the initial...

The Ibanez AEG series are not worth looking at. I believe the #10 are all laminate. Plus its been stiffened some to try and prevent feedback, which kind of makes it sound like cardboard.

FWIW, "bilt", is "built", in the form of a suffix. It's always compounded with another word

"Built", (past tense of, "to build"), is a complete word, ( a verb), in and of itself.

You'll see "bilt"...

The G octave string on a 12 string is indeed an .008. (standard acoustic 12 string light set, .010 to .047).

However, the note it is tuned to, G4, is the note...
