Re: Ibanez Prestige 7 string nut question

You're matching the fret radius, that also matches the trem.

I don't know what's going on, discontinuing a part that's on 2 current production models. All I can figure is there's a hardware color change for next year, it'll be PC, and why PC is on long back order because they're using them in preproduction.

Re: Ibanez Prestige 7 string nut question

Don't get it either. About at the point where I might just have to sell the thing over a silly $60 part. Wish I could wait a few months for them to come in, but I can't.

So, putting on an OFR with the accompanying nut would just feel totally weird since it doesn't match the neck radius?

Why change the bridge?

You won't get squat for it with a bad nut, you might as well wait. Or you could try and get a machine shop to Heli-coil it.

I'm brain dead today. It's not current production, the EZ is using the bar-less nut.

That's not the one you need is it?

Not quite sure what you mean by bar-less nut. Its an 08' 1527M with the edge pro trem with the string retainer.

I guess it would seem more rational to wait it out, just sucks as I just got the guitar and this little discrepancy wasn't noted. Might have to find someone who can machine it, or figure something.

Retainer - bar, current doesn't have, different nut. it might retrofit though, but i'm definitely not sure of that.

Yeah, if I could find one of those I would go for it, worth a shot.
