The traditional answer is an all maple neck is brighter sounding than a maple neck with a rosewood fretboard... personally I can't tell much difference. It's mainly a feel and look preference, and...

If you want to start learning the ins and outs of guitar assembly and setup then go with the kit. If you're just doing it to save money then I'd just buy a cheap guitar or used guitar.

I swapped them around in my Jackson (85 in bridge, 81 in neck). To me the 85 is more versatile although it's a little bass heavy (which I like). I have to admit though with the medium gain stuff my...

I personally would rather have an Ibanez that is uniquely Ibanez like the Jem (or an RG, S, etc.) than an Ibanez that is just a copy of the more popular guitar. Just my 2 cents.

Spec wise there on par with Les Studio Pro's but with dirty finger pick ups. I'd assume quality is at that level as well. If you can find one in a store new for the real street price it's a pretty...

The neck wood and joint are the most important factors to good sustain and 'even' sounding notes across the whole fretboard. A neck that vibrates too much can vibrate 'against' the string with...

My basswood Jackson Soloist had the 81 bridge / 85 neck combo. I switched them around because the 81 was a bit to harsh for my taste and the 85 was a bit too wooly in the neck. If you're playing...

My 2002 LP Studio was $1,200 brand new.... I'm guessing the wife told him he had to sell a guitar but he didn't want to so he just put a silly price on it so no one would buy it.

Aside from the body shape the Damien is a bolt on neck and the Solo-6 is a set neck. The differences will mostly be ergonomic and feel. They'll both sound similar.

You get what you pay for up to a point. To me about $2,500 is the cut off; anything more than that and you're paying for aesthetic things or exclusivity. To say $500 is the max is just silly. Can...
