Ibanez thru neck bolted nut

I'm not sure what the correct terminology here is but,
What year did Ibanez do away with the bolt thru style nut found on the original wizard neck?

Re: Ibanez thru neck bolted nut

bolt thru? do you mean square heel vs. AANJ? because the first AANJ was in the mid to late '80's. then they started putting it on the RG's and Sabers in (i think) about 1994 or 1995

I'm refering to the nut (and I suppose I should say locking nut). The old RG's have the two bolts/screws on the backside of the neck and the new prestige's do not. I didn't know if that was always the way it was with Prestige or if that was changed even before the Prestige was introduced.

I've got one from 97 and one from 2001. Both have the nut bolted through the neck.

Re: Ibanez thru neck bolted nut

Im pretty sure the prestiges and higher (premiuims?) have the "top mounted nut" you are speaking of (Thats the term, btw). Dont think indonesian models (again, premiums?) would get the same treatment.




Im pretty annoyed with ibanez lately. Calling non japanese models "500's"... ticks me off

Yup. I was SOOO mad when I picked up an "s520" the other day and it wasnt made in japan.

Sorry, its completely off topic, just a small rant of mine

Re: Ibanez thru neck bolted nut

agreed! but i do love the darkstones.

ANYWAY!! my guess is that it started with the prestige's. i think the indo guitars still have it. but i know that my 2000 rg570dx neck has that kind of nut so it al least made it to Y2K

Re: Ibanez thru neck bolted nut

My RGT3120 is a top mount, but then again it's a prestige so I think were supporting Linux's theory pretty well.............BTW, My RGT is an '02.
