Ibanez Steve Vai JEM505

Ibanez Steve Vai JEM505 Electric Guitar Black


Ibanez Steve Vai JEM505 Electric Guitar Black


Crank your amp up, grab this baby and hold on for dear life.

Steve Vai has changed the way musicians think about what a guitar can really do. His signature Ibanez guitars are no different: iconic, sublime, awe-inspiring, and outrageous. The Ibanez JEM series guitars are trailblazers in a world of imitators – there's nothing like them. These Ibanez electric guitar have been proudly made in Japan since their debut in 1987

The JEM505 Steve Vai guitar has a contoured basswood body and features a 5-piece maple and walnut bolt-on neck with the JEM Prestige neck profile that provides easy access to all registers. A 24-fret maple fretboard offers bright tone and is tastefully adorned with black dot inlays. The Ibanez JEM505 Steve Vai guitar will let you scream or moan with the low-profile Edge bridge and groundbreaking Lion's Claw tremolo cavity that allows pitches to be radically raised or lowered without obstruction. The Ibanez JEM505 guitar also sports Steve Vai's famous Monkey Grip body hole.

The Ibanez JEM505 electric guitar unleashes scorching highs, bone-rattling lows and every bit of tone and nuance in between, with its powerful and perfectly balanced Ibanez Vintage 7 humbucking (neck), Single 1 (middle) single-coil, and Vintage 8 (bridge) humbucking pickups. The Vintage 7 humbucker features a ceramic magnet for a tone and response that is bright and tight – very dynamic for chording and rhythm work. The Ibanez Single 1 is a traditional-sounding, yet high-output single-coil pickup with Alnico V polepieces for even string output. It is designed to work with humbuckers in the split position. The Ibanez Vintage 8 humbucker also has an Alnico magnet and is a warm, articulate lead pickup with enhanced overtones. It yields good harmonics without excessive brightness. Ibanez's split-5 wiring provides incredible tonal versatility. The Ibanez JEM505 guitar comes with a molded hardshell case.

Gibson Custom Hot-Mod 1955 Les Paul Goldtop

Gibson Custom Hot-Mod 1955 Les Paul Goldtop Tune-O-Matic Electric Guitar Antique Gold


Gibson Custom Hot-Mod 1955 Les Paul Goldtop Tune-O-Matic Electric Guitar Antique Gold


The hot-mod angle on the Gibson Custom Hot-Mod 1955 Les Paul Goldtop electric guitar is based on the idea of a 1955 Les Paul Goldtop that was later modified with humbucker pickups (introduced by Gibson in 1957). The classic combination of maple-topped mahogany body with ABR-1 Tune-O-Matic bridge and humbuckers delivers a glorious monster tone that introduces a comfortable and resonant neck profile. Soft Shoulder '55 Neck Profile The Soft Shoulder '55 neck profile makes the Gibson Custom Hot-Mod Les Paul sit in your hand like no other guitar neck. Gibson's guitar team chose a '55 Les Paul that had a neck with a "magical feel" to serve as a model for the Soft Shoulder '55 neck. The depth is the same from the top of the fretboard to the back of the neck as the rounded '50s neck, yet has gently sloping sides that sit comfortably in your hand. ABR-1 Tune-O-Matic Bridge/ Stopbar Tailpiece The ABR-1 Tune-O-Matic bridge was the brainchild of famed Gibson president Ted McCarty in 1954, setting a standard for simplicity and functionality that has never been bettered.

The Alnico V pickup found in the neck position on the Gibson Custom 1955 Les Paul Custom electric guitar was designed in 1952 by Seth Lover and Walt Fuller for Gibson to succeed the P-90 single-coil pickup on several of Gibson's distinguished archtop jazz hollowbodies, most famously the L5 CES, ES-5, and Byrdland guitars. Similar to the P-90 in appearance, the Alnico V is easily recognized by its distinctive rectangular pole pieces. The guitar pickup gets its name from the stronger Alnico V magnets, while each coil has 10,000 turns of 42-gauge wire to achieve its clear, round, ringing sound. It made its debut on a solidbody Gibson in the Fretless Wonder of 1954, the Les Paul Custom, or Black Beauty.

Made in Japan by Ibanez's best craftsmen.The ZR2 (Zero Resistance) bridge with the ZPS3 spring system returns you to "zero" — center point — after each use of the tremolo arm, even in the case of string breakage!

Headway EDB-1 Acoustic Instrument Preamp

Headway EDB-1 Acoustic Instrument Preamp


Headway EDB-1 Acoustic Instrument Preamp


With the compact Headway EDB-1 (Sheer Acoustic Equaliser Direct Blend) mega multi-purpose external pre-amplifier box you can completely shape your sound with a 5-band interactive EQ, switchable input impedance, and 3-way range switch. The preamp's controls offer acoustic guitar, bass, or violin settings—which cut unwanted low end tones below the useable frequency range of the instrument. This cuts body-handling noise, unwanted resonances, feedback, and violin bowing noise. Feedback and other resonance problems may be further tackled by a very effective, broad-ranging tunable notch filter and a phase reverse control. The Headway EDB-1 preamp's inputs provide plenty of options for any amplification you use. Whether using a 1/4" jack, balanced stereo 1/4" jack, or XLR jack for a microphone, the EDB-1 has got you covered. Headway EDB-1 inputs include mono jack, stereo jack and XLR, through 2 channels. The inputs enable you to blend in an extra pickup, or microphone. You can plug into them with 1 or 2 standard mono jack leads, a jack lead plus an XLR, or a stereo jack lead. An unbalanced 1/4" jack would be related to the Channel 1 input. A balanced 1/4" jack relates to the stereo input (using channels 1 and 2), for an instrument using an internal mic and pickup, being blended internally. Channel 2 mic is an XLR input allowing you to use a microphone onstage, if your instrument does not have a pickup. Each channel's input impedance switches allow you to optimize the voicing for any of the major pickup types, while a huge amount of extra levels can be applied via the gain controls and master volume.
