Go to Ibanez wiki & see what the specs are. If it's got the quantum pups in it they're not too bad.

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.

The measurement refers to the height. For example my 86 Roadstar 2 with non recessed trem has a much greater sustain block height than my rg520 also with edge but is recessed is much shorter....

You could play it safe & go with the 33, or take the chance & go with the 36 sine there is only 1 mm difference.

They're all the same. I gotta wonder though how it got stripped. Seems like you may be be doing a bit too much adjusting on them. That's the thing about locking trems, you really need to pick a...

My more expensive solution to claw screws is the Schaller sure claw. I put it in my 520 & Roadstar 2. Works much better, & it has a far better adjustment range.

We'll that's easy. Take it out, go to the hardware store, & find one to match. There's nothing special about them, they're just wood screws.

When you say claw screws I'm assuming you mean the spring claw? If so, is it the wood the screw goes into that is getting stripped out?

I don't know if screw holes line up or not. I personally prefer the Gibraltar over the hard tail, especially with thicker strings. I think they have a greater intonation adjustment range.

Look for the RG 421 as well. There's also a 521, but it's a fujigen & will cost considerably more coin.

Nothing wrong with a used one, but it may have the infinity pups in it, which will likely disappoint you from the start. If it has those in it do some serious haggling.

Have you considered a 450? A new one would get you by for a while. Quantum pups aren't too bad. I find the edge zero 2 pretty decent myself, after working with it bit I found the springs softened up...

I saw a video somewhere on the interwebs about those. Check to see if the knobs have a flip top on them. I can't remember what the site is though.

What do the pickups say on them. Could be someone swapped necks. Those wizards were fairly fragile below the locking nut, & neck swaps are not unusual.

Parts for those puppies are difficult to find at best. I have avoided pre 86 Roadstar for that reason. In addition you can't drop in an aftermarket because the posts are too far apart. Check Ibanez...

My own personal experience is headstock tuners are not as well suited as plug in ones. Those & phone apps are better suited to acoustic guitar. I tune guitars using a a Peterson model 100 tuner &...

On TOM type bridges sometimes you have to reverse the saddles when you increase the string gage. Also you gotta make sure you stretch the strings before attempting to intonate.

Measure the size of your pots, then Google guitar volume pots. There's plenty of sellers online. Keep in mind a tone pot is really just a volume pot with a capacitor attached to bleed off treble.

That looks like it can be addressed with some minor fret crowning. I have to do it about every five restrings, just to make bends a little smoother.

Maybe you could list by it for $200 & haggle from there. The tremolo is quite pitted. & The pickup poles are rusty. You'll need to see if the pups at least still work. Anytime I see rust on the...

That's called the tone or sustain block. The base plate is what the saddles sit on. It looks like there is writing on the opposite side of where the arm socket is.
