Ibanez RG565 in Black

She's pretty beat up. Lots of dings and chips and stuff. it's a good thing she's black and hides it well! The neck is really nice, but two frets are buzzing, any suggestions? Should I go get a full fret mill for two frets? I really don't have the cash right now. Rewired a bunch of stuff, added knobs, cleaned some gunk off the body, and now she plays! Came with a tone zone and a very nice single coil, probably aftermarket as well:

Respray + fret dress = good to go.

Re: Ibanez RG565 in Black

neck's pretty clean for a player... where's the dings and chips??? haha
which frets exactly? maybe a fret polish and/or fret level with some minor adjustments should do the trick.

Re: Ibanez RG565 in Black

I love the reverse headstock, maple neck and HxS pup config.

Not sure about the extra ends left on the strings though....hmmmm? Why would you leave them long and not have them seated against the tuners?

I suspect they're about to get trimmed off...

I poked my finger on one of the loose ends once and have left it like that ever since. Never really thought of it. Guess i couldl satisfy my fellows and trim them though...

H S is nice. Very nice. I'm friggin overseas right now and keep looking at my old posts to look at my guitars. They're like my babies. Can't wait to get home and play a little.

ha!! I will pm you if I ever sell it. but don't hold your breath. Possible new paint job coming up. But so damn expensive!!!

Hey, do you have a clue as to what kind of neck pickup that is? I know it's not the original. The tone is pretty amazing, powerful, but the high e is a little quiet. How could I figure it out? there's no markings .
