The Ibanez RG3EXFM1 electric guitar has the pickups and pickup placement that give you the hard-edged cutting tone you want for heavy rock.

As heavy as it rocks, this Ibanez RG guitar is made of basswood, a comparatively lightweight wood, which makes it very comfortable for extended playing.

The guitar's flamed maple top not only adds beauty, but just a bit of extra brightness to make individual notes stand out. 24 frets offer you easy playing for leads and chords.

The IBZ V7 (Vintage 7) neck pickup is tight, but bright. Very dynamic for chording and rhythm. The IBZ V8 (Vintage 8) bridge pickup is a warm, yet articulate lead pickup with enhanced overtones. The RG3EXFM1 electric guitar has good harmonics without excessive brightness.

Since 1987, many players have selected Ibanez RG guitars as their weapon of choice for visiting sonic mayhem on the metal masses. With the right choice of pickups and flat, fast necks the RG3EXFM1 is crunching its way to classic status.dynmaics

Gibson Les Paul Junior Special Double Cutaway Electric Guitar Gloss Yellow 886830041068


Gibson Les Paul Junior Special Double Cutaway Electric Guitar Gloss Yellow 886830041068


The solid mahogany body of the Les Paul Special is carved with a double cutaway for amazing upper-fret access, and was given a flat "slab" top for ease of manufacture. The neck is constructed from solid mahogany carved to Gibson's popular "slim taper" profile, which offers a blend of speed and comfort. The neck shape on the Gibson Les Paul Special is an outstanding marriage between the rounded '50s profile and super-slim early '60s profile. An ebony fingerboard enhances note attack and articulation.

Dual Gibson P-90 pickups give the Les Paul Special Double guitar a snappy, slightly gritty response, with a chunky midrange, firm lows, and sweet, musical highs. In the bridge position, the P-90 packs plenty of snarly cutting power, while in the neck position it can be surprisingly rich and refined.

This Gibson guitar comes with a LP Thinline Case.

PRS Private Stock Signature

PRS Private Stock Signature -  Ltd Run # 26 of 100 Electric Guitar McCArty Smokeburst


PRS Private Stock Signature - Ltd Run # 26 of 100 Electric Guitar McCArty Smokeburst


The Signature Limited Run reintroduces the concept of the popular "Signature Series" guitar first offered over 20 years ago and adds PRS's top tier Private Stock appointments and a list of influential artists. Limited to 100 pieces, the Signature model showcases a culmination of years of artist input and boasts PRS's first ever multi-endorsement guitar with Tom Wheeler, Howard Leese, Michael Ault, Davy Knowles, Tim Pierce, Miles Kennedy, and Paul Reed Smith all backing the model.

"Every update the PRS Tech Center (PTC) has to offer has been included in the creation of this model's specifications, and the artist line up speaks volumes of this guitar's capabilities," said Paul Reed Smith.

Highlights include a brand new pickup system with proprietary 408 treble and bass humbucking pickups which produce eight sounds including coil-splitting on a simple switching scheme. The 408 treble is wider than a standard humbucker while the 408 bass humbucker is narrower which means they each sense a different length of string, producing a more spread out sound at the same volume. The 408 single-coil modes sound almost the same volume as the humbucking mode. The 2 x mini toggles activate the slug side coil when in the "up" position and full humbucker in the "down" position. The closest mini toggle to the neck is for the neck pickup and the other is for the bridge pickup.

A highly figured Private Stock maple top, and ME (Modern Eagle) birds with brown mother-of-pearl centers create an arresting visual impression. This model's filled-in "sinker" mahogany neck gives the player a new but familiar unfinished feel.

Pattern Neck Shape
Neck shapes have always been a high priority for PRS and a hallmark of their quality. A guitar should feel comfortable, like "home," as soon as you pick it up, and the neck is paramount to that connection. Perfected after years of prototyping, the new "Pattern" neck is an updated Wide Fat PRS neck style based on Paul's pre-factory design. These necks were found on the instruments built for Carlos Santana, Peter Frampton and Howard Leese from the late 70's to the mid 80's.

Epiphone Wilshire Phant-O-Matic Frank Iero

Epiphone Wilshire Phant-O-Matic Frank Iero Signature Electric Guitar Antique Ivory


Epiphone Wilshire Phant-O-Matic Frank Iero Signature Electric Guitar Antique Ivory


The Epiphone Wilshire Phant-O-Matic Electric Guitar was designed in collaboration with Frank Iero, guitarist for multi-platinum band My Chemical Romance, and combines an incredible array of features that only Epiphone would dare put in one instrument.

The result is one of the smartest and most flexible guitars on the market with all the vintage styling that made Wilshire models a behind-the-scenes favorite of Jimi Hendrix, Johnny Winter, Paul Gilbert, and Steve Marriot.

Classic Form
Like the classic SG design, the Wilshire Phant-o-matic features a double cutaway design with a solid Mahogany body. The 24.75 scale Mahogany hand-set neck has a 1960s SlimTaper profile, a rosewood fingerboard with mother-of-pearl block inlays, a 12 radius, and a 1-11/16 nut. The neck profile and double cutaway make the Wilshire Phant-o-matic a perfect guitar for chunking rhythm or cutting leads. The Antique Ivory finish, black single-ply pickguard, and classic form are eye catching to be sure. But what really sets the Wilshire Phant-o-matic apart from the pack is how it sounds.
