Screaming fat mahogany tone!

The powerful Ibanez SZ720FM is a relatively recent offshoot of the Ibanez S family of electric guitars. Like the S, the SZ is mahogany and sized perfectly for performance. But the SZ is thicker for even more screaming, fat mahogany tone and its 25.1" neck has a different feel than the 25.5" scale of the S. Flamed maple top, gorgeous inlays. And if the SZ is ever so slightly heavier in weight. Its shaped contours make up for any difference with a physical comfort that s almost obscene.

Ibanez SZ720FM Flamed Maple Electric Guitar Features:

* Neck: 3pc SZ set-in neck
* NeckType: SZ (set-in)
* Body: Mahogany body/ flamed maple top
* Frets: Medium frets
* Fingerboard: Bound rosewood
* Inlay: SZ Special
* Bridge: Gibraltar III bridge
* NeckPU: Duncan/Ibanez neck pu

Gibson Robot SG Special Ltd

Gibson Robot SG Special Ltd. Electric Guitar Purple Metallic



Gibson Robot SG Special Ltd. Electric Guitar Purple Metallic



The Robot is Back! Extremely Limited Edition!

The Robot SG Special Ltd. has joined the lineup of Gibson Robot Electric Guitars. One of the most common, and passionate requests that Gibson received after the debut of the Robot Les Paul, the world's first guitar with robotic technology, was for an SG sporting the revolutionary tuning automation. The Gibson Robot SG Ltd. is a guitar that offers all the power, tone, and performance of a traditional SG electric guitar, with the revolutionary Robot automatic tuning.

You don't have to tune up your car every time you drive it. Now you don't have to tune up your guitar every time you play it. The Robot Guitar does it for you. Just plug it in, dial in the tuning, strum the strings, and play.

The self-tuning system is built into a gorgeous Gibson SG guitar without changing its looks while retaining all the sound and playability that have made the SG one of the most successful electric guitars of all time. To tune itself, the Robot Guitar uses an onboard central processing unit (CPU) that analyzes the pitch of each string as detected by the Tune-Control bridge. Tuning information from the CPU is relayed to the motorized tuning machines that efficiently adjust each string to the correct pitch with a distinctive whirring sound that lets you know Robot Guitar is on the job.

You activate the Robot Guitar with the Master Control Knob (MCK) that functions as a tone control in the down position and is pulled up to activate the tuning system. In addition to standard (A-440Hz) tuning, six commonly used tunings are selectable from the MCK. Users can also program their own custom tunings as well as set the guitar's intonation. Now, with the Gibson Robot Guitar, you'll spend more time playing in tune. In live performance you can easily change tunings practically soundlessly on the fly, keeping your show flowing smoothly. There's no longer any need to haul several instruments to the gig to cover various tunings; The Robot does it all for you!

The Robot SG Ltd. has a solid mahogany body with a nitrocellulose finish. The mahogany neck is hand-shaped into a rounded 50s profile and is topped with an ebony fretboard. A Gibson 490R humbucker pickup with Alnico II magnets in the neck position and 498T humbucker with Alnico V magnets in the bridge position provide that Patent Applied For sound. Four-conductor wiring allows connection of a push/pull pot for coil-splitting. Wax potting reduces the chances of microphonic feedback. The performance-safeguarding Neutrik jack secures the cord into the guitar.

$1,999.99 - $2,199.00 -or- $60/mo. - Finance Now
List Price: $3,018.00 - $3,320.00

A breathtaking flamed top on a 20th-century guitar icon.

The Gibson SG Supreme Electric Guitar with '57 Humbuckers has 24 easy-to-reach frets. A flamed maple top with stunning burst finishes and a bound ebony fretboard featuring split-diamond inlays result in one of the sweetest-looking SGs ever. Stadium-ready tone comes from the amazing '57 humbuckers that dictated a whole generation of rock 'n' roll sound. Alnico II magnets, vintage enamel-coated wire, nickel-plated pole pieces, nickel slugs, maple spacers, and 2-conductor braided wiring make these true vintage heavyweights that dish out creamy clean tones, screaming sustain, and gravelly crunch. Gibson's classic wood combination of maple-on-mahogany body with a mahogany set neck adds resonance and sustain. 1959 slim-tapered neck furnishes a fast feel. Includes Gibson hardshell case.

A Little SG History
In 1961, the Les Paul was redesigned with a thinner body and 2 sharp cutaway horns that making the upper frets more accessible while lowering production costs. The new guitar was popular, but Les Paul the guitarist did not like it and asked to have his name removed. Gibson renamed the model the "SG" which was short for "solid guitar". Though Les Paul's name was officially removed from the model in 1961, the plastic Les Paul nameplates (positioned between the rhythm pickup and fingerboard) were in abundance in the Gibson factory and SG models having these nameplates were built and sold by Gibson up to end of 1963. SGs have been the choice of world-class artists such as Pete Townsend, Eric Clapton, Tony Iommi, and Angus Young.

Gibson SG Supreme Electric Guitar with '57 Humbuckers Features:

* A flamed maple top with stunning burst finish
* Mahogany back
* Set mahogany neck
* Bound ebony fretboard featuring split-diamond inlays
* Bound headstock with split-diamond inlay

Valhalla for loopers and delay fiends.

We've put together the Gibson TGE-05 Echoplex Digital Pro Plus and TGE-04 Footswitch in one nicely priced package.

Gibson TGE-05 Echoplex Digital Pro Plus
Phenomenally powerful and endlessly versatile, the Gibson TGE-05 Echoplex Digital Pro Plus is a tool looking for an imagination to wield it. The convenient 19" rackmount unit brings together digital recording, sampling, and digital delay so that musicians of every type can utilize these powerful components in both studio and live applications. An amazing 16-bit/41.5kHz RAM recorder lets you playback and record simultaneously making ambient soundscapes, reversed loops, and rhythmic drones easy to create and shape.

It might help to think of the Echoplex as a sequencer for audio instead of MIDI, with all the capabilities of a sampler and a delay effect that ranges far beyond any pedal available. A progressive undo feature allows you to overdub with confidence. You can add unlimited overdubs onto any loop you record.

The Echoplex Digital Pro is designed by and for musicians. The intuitive and efficient controls on the rackmount unit and footpedal make it easy to use and settings are displayed through a multifunction LED. The switches on the optional EFC-7 foot control unit can also be custom configured, and play an integral part by allowing you to access all of the unit's main functions on the fly. Loops can be recorded, overdubbed, reversed, and deleted with your feet, in real time.

The Echoplex is completely MIDI compatible. Performance controls send and receive MIDI; loops and sound files may be saved and loaded via MIDI; and tempos can be synced to MIDI clock.

With 198 seconds of memory, 16-bit realtime digital loops, the capability to layer all 9 loops complete with overdubs, simultaneous playback and record, unlimited overdubs with progressive undos, and tap tempo controls, the Echoplex is peerless.

Martin Limited Edition 000-42M Eric Clapton Model - Starting At $7799.00

Everything for Guitarists, at the Best Prices in Town!


Martin Limited Edition 000-42M Eric Clapton Model - Starting At $7799.00

This beautifully crafted Limited Edition is worthy of the artist whose name it bears!

Since the original 000-42EC Eric Clapton Signature Edition was introduced in 1995, Clapton has explored the sonic subtleties of various tonewood combinations in the 000 Martin guitars that bear his name, but the 000-42M Eric Clapton Limited Edition may well boast the most exciting tonewood combination yet. The top is Carpathian spruce, which blends the power and clarity of Adirondack spruce, and the warmth and responsiveness of Italian alpine spruce. The back and sides are Madagascar rosewood, prized for its uncanny resemblance in both appearance and rich resonance to the now endangered Brazilian rosewood. Scalloped top braces give both tonewoods full tonal expression. The 1 3/4" (at the nut) V neck with diamond volute is carved from genuine mahogany.

Reminiscent of the Brazilian rosewood 000-42ECB Eric Clapton Signature Edition Martin produced in 2000, the 000-42M Eric Clapton Limited Edition features spectacular abalone pearl appointments throughout. Select abalone pearl inlays in the Style 45 rosette, and around the top and fingerboard extension, are highlighted by black and white fine line wood fiber borders. The Madagascar rosewood headplate on the square, tapered headstock provides the canvas for the rare Alternative Torch inlay, which originated on one of four Martin 1902 00-45 instruments and has been offered on only a handful of Signature Editions. In the tradition of classic Martins from the early 1930s and before, the back of the headstock bears the historic "C. F. Martin" pressure stamp. The ebony fingerboard showcases Style 45 abalone pearl snowflake inlays at the 1st, 3rd, 5th, 7th, 9th, 12th, 15th and 17th frets, with Eric Clapton's signature inlaid in mother of pearl between the 19th and 20th frets.

The 000-42M Eric Clapton Limited Edition is fully bound in grained ivoroid; black and white fine line inlays accent the headplate and mitered fingerboard binding, while black and white fine line purfling enhances the back and side binding. A Style 45 multi-colored mosaic inlay strip bisects the back. The headstock is fitted with Waverly™ nickel open geared tuning machines with white ivoroid butterbean knobs. Style 45 bone bridge pins topped with abalone pearl dot inlays on the ebony belly bridge are matched by an abalone pearl-inlaid bone endpin. Both the nut and compensated saddle are crafted from genuine bone for exceptional sound.

The polished and beveled acetate/nitrate vintage-style tortoise pickguard is particularly striking against this guitar's two available top hues: the deep amber vintage toner offered standard and the optional 1937 Style Sunburst, available for an extra charge. Martin's immaculate polished gloss finish on the body, neck and headplate enables the rich colors of the 000-42M Eric Clapton Limited Edition's tonewoods and inlays to shine.

When Eric received his personal 000-42M Eric Clapton Limited Edition guitar — a Sunburst — he responded with an email that simply said: "...absolutely beautiful!"

Each 000-42M Eric Clapton Limited Edition bears an interior label personally signed by Eric Clapton and individually numbered in sequence with the edition total. The guitars are delivered in a deluxe Geib™ style five-ply hardshell case. Left-handed instruments may be ordered at no additional charge. Authorized C. F. Martin dealers will begin taking orders immediately for the 000-42M Eric Clapton Limited Edition, which is limited to no more than 250 special guitars.

Ibanez RG3EXQM1 Quilted Maple Top Electric Guitar

Ibanez RG3EXQM1 Quilted Maple Top Electric Guitar Transparent Red Sunburst



Ibanez RG3EXQM1 Quilted Maple Top Electric Guitar Transparent Red Sunburst



Sweet and dangerous looks.

The Ibanez RG3EXQM1 electric guitar's humbucker pickups and pickup placement provide the hard-edged cutting tone needed for heavy rock.

Since 1987, many players have selected the Ibanez RG as their weapon of choice for visiting sonic mayhem on the metal masses. With the right choice of pickups plus flat and fast necks, the RG has crunched its way to classic status. To the RG's lethal combination of features, RG Prestige models add the comfortable, rounded feel of Prestige neck finishing, drop-dead good looks and great electronics and hardware.

A solid ash body provides great resonance, especially on the bottom tones. 24 jumbo frets offer easy playing for leads and chording, and a fixed bridge design offers thru-body stringing for stronger tone and sustain. Features 2 EMG-designed humbuckers and a bolt-on 3-piece maple neck with a headstock to match the body. The quilted maple top and shark tooth inlays on a 25-1/2"-scale rosewood fingerboard give it a striking both sweet and dangerous look. 24 jumbo frets deliver insane playability for riffers and shredders alike.
