I am no prof. but did my own 2570E VSL 1 month ago. Bought it for $800 in mint with Case.

I did the truss rod, bridge height and intonation...it rocks!

Long and McQuade's has pro's that will do it.

What needs adjusting on your 2570?

Yep i have dealt with that store at Keele and Steeles.

Adjusting the neck according to the ibanez manual is pretty close to being perfect. Make sure you have the proper neck relief and then and only then adjust the bridge height. OF course you have to tune and retune, play with the spring tension to keep the trem at the right angle.

I have to hit the low E string hard to get it to buzz on lower 3 frets, other than that perfect and nice low action. Also I find the light gauge E string being .042 really vibrates a lot so will tend to buzz more than a higher gauge string.

Re: Any Good Ibanez Guitar Tech In toronto

I wasn't too impressed with the job I had done at L&M on Steeles. I did however deal with a guy on Dufferin by the name of Brian Mascarin who has his own little shop and does an absolutely fantastic job.

Ya the .042 is very vibraty lol new word. =D, thought it was just my strings that got old from sitting in the store too long. I was just ripping on the guitar earlier, feels really really nice, other then the buzz on the lower E string down first 3 frets, other then that plays beautifully. I guess, I could wait till spring to do a tune up. Damn Canadian winter so dry and cold T.T I do have a free tune up available at L&M i guess i could do that. Thanks for your input. VSL all the way! yah! lol

Does he usually have big line ups? like how long does it take to get the guitar back on average. -Thanks
