Two Questions??

Question #1:
I have a Jem 7VWH and I just put new strings on and intonated but string #1 & #2, E & B, are still flat and the saddles are all the way forward. I am intonating at the 24th fret. Is there anything I can do to get those strings intonated?

Question #2:
I want to buy another Ibanez guitar as a backup in case something happens to my Jem but don't want to spend as much as a Jem. Is there another less expensive guitar(s) that uses the exact neck as my Jem guitar? I love the neck on my Jem.

Re: Two Questions??

You could pick up an old RG550 or 570 as a great backup. Those Wizard necks are awesome!

Re: Two Questions??

Intonation shouldn't be a problem, but it's not the first time I've heard of issues.

I use Rich's guide which can be found HERE and follow it step by step.

With regards to the second question, technically the answer is "no" only a JEM comes with a JEM neck profile. However the slightly slimmer Wizard neck found on the RG550 and 570 is similar, but a little slimmer. Necks on more modern guitars with the Wizard 2 profile tend to be even more similar, but the guitars themselves tend to be lower range models.

The best thing to do is to check out the Ibanez webiste and look up the neck specs on your JEM and then those on the RG models that you like the look of.
