I would just get comfortable playing the A chord (x02220) with three fingers. Usually index, middle and ring fingers using your thumb to mute the low E. That way you can get all strings ringing...

As above, thumb plucking towards floor and fingers plucking up. Also consider how you are resting your hand. Some people like to 'ground' it by planting their pinky on the body and picking with the...

I also use elixirs. Used to use ernie ball and D'addario, but won't go back after using elixirs. They last a long time and feel great. A little more expensive but they last at least 3 times as long...

I like the look of it, but I suggest you go have a play of it. You're probably never going to get that money back, so don't look at it as an investment or anything like that- every dump I take is one...

Definitely not worth going to the hassle to return it and kick up a fuss. As others have said, dings and chips are completely inevitable.

Your specs are pretty broad, so it's hard to narrow it down. There's a lot of Ibanez guitars within that price range with those specs. The RG series is pretty damn good and should give you everything...

As the other user posted, a 'few cranks' is probably too much. Most of the time you should be doing half/quarter turns and then leaving the guitar overnight to allow it to adjust. Also, you need to...

I personally find the schecter 7 and 8 string necks too chunky. The first 7 I ever tried to play was a schecter and it nearly turned me off the idea of extra strings completely. It felt rough and...
