I have found that old guitars are a lot like old cars. They really can't be brought to factory specs. Best you can do is make it play best for you. Factory specs really just means how it's supposed...

Quick answer is probably not. Do some research for the specs on those, but after 86 bodies & necks changed dramatically for the IBANEZ lineup. Check about for used Roadstar 2s I picked up an 85 for...

I really hope you didn't get a 270 instead of a 570. The 570 of that era were fugijen, the 270 Indonesian. Check the back of the headstock. The TRS 505 is not near the trem the Edge is, which is what...

Nope, there is no easy swap out. The studs for the pro rocker are spaced too far apart for Floyd spaced trems. I'll have to do a drill & fill on the old posts at least. There may not be enough wood...

It's supposed to say re-fret vs regret. Auto correct glitch. Tried to include photo but it was to big I guess.

I think many years ago Japanese RGs were made at various Japanese factories, until 450s on down were outsourced. I believe this occurred in the early 90s, but Rich would be the expert on that.

The V7, V8 aren't bad pickups, that just don't seem to have much bite, they do ok when you crank the gain up a bit, but not nice like the trembucker or virtual PAF in my Jackson. Far better than...

It'll be lacquered. Use sparing amounts of dish soap & water & a stiff toothbrush for stubborn dirt. I personally only clean my maple fretboards so they play smooth. I kinda like the character of a...

In a guitar that nice, I'd install a Schaller sure claw. put one in my Roadstar 2 & my 520qs. The adjustment range is far superior to conventional claw screws.

.25 mm would not be a lot to take off the wood. You gotta be really precise & take your time. Taking it off the lock nut would take forever.

My personal opinion is that all the various "tone woods" really have little if any effect on sustain. Sustain is a combination of how long the string maintains the vibration & the drop off point of...

The primary benefit to upgrading to the Edge variants is durability & sustain. Sustain can be addressed by upgrading the sustain block. Personally I'd use what you got till you wore it out, then...

I have an RG520QS from 2001. Essentially the late 90s early 2000 fugijen models were the precursor to what is now marketed as the prestige line. Incredibly they can be had for reasonable coinage.

I'm willing to bet that some type of fancy shmancy machine or tools are utilized, which are beyond the reach of us mere mortals unless the requisite coin is paid.

In reference to how far you can lower the pivot studs, it depends on how far you want to or can go before you experience fret buzz. To answer your locking screw question you just need to loosen till...

Ibanez rules is gonna be your best bet. You are looking for nearly impossible parts. Unfortunately you'll have to change the post positions if you want to change trems.

I personally prefer the neck on my 86 Roadstar 2. Nice round feel & Tung oil finish. It's my favorite neck to play on.
