Do you have any friends/relatives/people who owe you a favor around that play and you can trust their opinion? Get them to check out any guitars first. If not, then all you can do is play them as...

It wasn't that long ago that I saw a piece on Martin guitars on a TV. There was a guy there playing one made over a century ago, and man what a tone.

They're guitars. Guitars are built to be played.

It looks to me like it has a small crack. It was probably already there, just too small to be noticeable to your eye. I see that all the time at work, tiny cracks that are difficult to see, if not...

I don't think I've ever met a woman who wasn't a little unbalanced in some way or another. I think it's part of the package deal.

If I was going to get a Squire Bullet HH just to gut it and put in new hardware and p'ups, I'd go for something a bit better than the Blacktop ones, TBH. While the p'ups in my Blacktop are fine for...

You're out of luck there. I'm fairly certain no one is as nuts as my ex. Except her mother. They'd find both our bodies minus some internal organs in a ditch somewhere along 81.

On the other hand, it's also easier for the same technology to mask poor performers. Hence we have low-talent "singers" gyrating on stage instead of singing, using pre-recorded garbling that's...

I can't comment objectively on the Epiphone, since I work for Gibson (even if it took me 5 tries to type the name!), so I'll pass on that one. I've played a Casino though, as well as a 330 up at the...

Soldering Iron (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soldering_iron)

In this case, it can be used to directly apply heat to the trem, as said, heating it up and causing the glue to loosen.
