ibanez rg 1570 problem

I couldnt find a post about this anywhere so maybe you guys can help me!
The high E on my 1570 is ridiculously close to the edge of the fretboard
when I tap it comes off. Is this normal? Can it be fixed?

Re: ibanez rg 1570 problem

same as on mine, have to learn to live with it, shouldn't be tapping the string off the fretboard, maybe your technique is at fault.

Re: ibanez rg 1570 problem

Sounds like the nut has slided a bit; is it tight? If the low E is far in on the fretboard, then it should be a string misalignment at the bridge, nut, or both.

That said, all RGs I've played have the high E pretty close to the edge of the fretboard. The upside is, when you tap and the string comes off the fretboard you can get pretty cool effects (and that's without a whammy pedal )

You can pick one up for $430 at a handfull of dealers off the net. They're making room for the '05 models comin in.
