Are the necks all the same? I see some on ebay that are "RG" necks. Does that mean it's not a Vai neck? An earlier Vai/Ibanez version?

I play hard rock and don't know how to choose an amp. I'll upgrade my Jackson pickups when I get a chance to Dimarzio or EMG. I want a tube amp. Budget is middle of the road.

I'll get the slots just deep enough to seat the strings, then I take some off the bottom with sandpaper on my bench until it's in the ballpark, then string it up and fine tune.

Another nut thread. Can't seem to find a good way to start the 5th, 6th string slots accurately. My 6th string is 0.42 (using 0.46 file) and slot was off a fraction of a mm. I tried starting the 6th s ...

Rosewood and ebony fretboards are not sealed? I think I read that somewhere (or youtube) so they retain the correct amount of moisture? And lemon polish helps them retain the moisture (when polish is ...

Strings get dirty and change the weight of the strings ever slightly which effects the harmonic motion, intonation.

I have a Musikraft neck (M/M, Franky C, 0.80-0.87, 6105, double truss rod) which is very good craftsmanship. I read that the double truss rod can give the neck a dead sound. (I have never plugged my g ...
