Ibanez parts in the UK?

Any UK based websites selling parts?, I'm after some new springs and screws and what not.

I don't think my local music shop sells anything I'm after.

Much appreciated.

They wont, but they can order them if they are Ibanez dealers, and for some freaky reason Ibanez parts are not too expensive in the UK compared to the US.

Thanks. I e-mailed Rich and I'll probably order some parts within the next 2 weeks, I just have to figure out what to buy, $10 is the minimum amount to spend.

Ring Sound Control in Manchester (www.soundcontrol.co.uk) and ask for Aidy (their luthier) he can get stuff in for you, nice guy too.

Yep, I've taken loads of Ibanez gear in there that's had stuff replaced and he gets the spares in rapid fashion too.

Then there is Max from Johnny Roadhouse music who seems like a nice guy and can get stuff but he seems to put his own "tax" on things if you know what I mean either that or Aidy gets stuff a wee bit cheaper.

Great stuff, don't suppose you have any idea how much a trem spring will set me back? I have no idea how much they're priced over here, that's if they're even priced.

I honestly think one of those two guys will sort you one for about £2, give them a ring!

Hi Max, my name is Geoff and have an Ibanez BL500 (J811844) ... was my first "real" electric some 40 years ago (actually 1983) .... got it new and used it for most everything for years....then one day decided to swap the supertap bridge pick up for a SD Hotrail and regretted it....lost the original pick up and then stopped using the guitar! I would love to restore it back to orig spec but finding it hard to find a complete set with coil tap and phase switches....plus I need the pots and at least 1 bronze gnarled pot knob...... can you source and if so, the cost ?
