Re: I tried a jem jr at guitar center

This mirrors my experience also. The Jem Jr had hideous frets.

Re: Anyone else quickly lost interest in the Sustainiac...?

Yeah I was expecting my 2019 white one to be made in South Korea as per the website description, but the back of the headstock says otherwise.

Re: Anyone else quickly lost interest in the Sustainiac...?

I bought the white one, other than a slightly rough cut of the trem route its pretty much perfect. The neck is very nice. Not bad for Indo, and under 700.

Re: Jem Premium vs RG550

I guess its not much different from Petricci or whoever, so I cant criticise him for that - however his tastes in guitars these days since the birth of the PIA bloody awful! Actually his last album...

Anyone else quickly lost interest in the Sustainiac...?

After selling a JS2480 a year or so ago, I was itching to try a sustainiac guitar again, toyed with the idea of putting on in an RG550 Genesis but took the lazy option and ended up going for a...

Re: What’s the difference between RG655 and the current RG550 genesis

Like you say, no hard case with the 550, some will say inferior pickups in the 550, no AANJ on the 550. Other than that.... not much.

Re: Collectible?, RG2570E 2007, J Craft, Ghost Shark Fins, Gold

The last few Prestige RG's I've sold have all been mint, no issues etc... but I've been shocked at just how little I'm getting for them on online auctions (with worldwide shipping).

Just seems...

Re: What upgrades can be done to RG550 genesis

I replaced the bridge and neck pickups with Evo's, didn't bother with the single coil as I dont use that much anyway.

However I cant help think that there are better pickups out there nowdays than...

Re: Sustainiac in RG550 Genesis?

I have no audio on my works PC so cant comment on how this sounds, but looks promising (the poster does state that a cavity has been cut on the back for a battery....).

Also I appreciate that this...

Sustainiac in RG550 Genesis?

Anyone on here managed to fit a Sustainiac in an RG550 Genesis, without resorting to routing out the control cavity?

Just reading the installation manual for the Sustainiac and it states that the...

Re: How to identify if my Ibanez RG 550 Genesis is legit?

Its definitely real! Loads of Prestige RG's seem to have crooked string retainer bars these days, unsure why, must be the Japanese craftsmanship we crave. Recenty had a new RG652 where one of the...

Re: Thoughts on the PIA (The new JEM)?

Couldn't agree more, Steve might be captivated by it, but in my eyes this PIA is just hideous, almost nasty, a mess. Maybe he's having a laugh, endorse something god awful and see how many people buy...

Re: Ibanez 2020 Catalog + NAMM

Gutted, what a mess. I was expecting something with a Sustainer and perhaps ebony fingerboard.... :-(

Re: New Guitar Day, something a little different..

Are the tuner holes smaller than regular, 10mm I think? I went to swap the tuners on my sons Mikro RG and had this problem.

Re: Can anyone tell me RG body thickness?

I didn't realise that Satriani has one installed in a JS2000, 4 years go!

I like both! After all if you spend a fortune on a nice looking guitar, why not keep it looking nice - but if you want something that's always on hand to pick up and play, get knocked over by...

Re: Another JS2480 Sustainiac quirk

Yes, mine does that also. I suppose with the sustainiac equipped guitars its not impossible to revert to standard pickups. That's assuming the neck pickup screw holes align up nicely with the holes...

Re: Another JS2480 Sustainiac quirk

It just clears but does feel way too close now, need to adjust it down a bit and see at which point the 'mix' position stops working. Got to admit I'm growing less fond of the neck pickup, not as...

Re: Another JS2480 Sustainiac quirk

It was the bridge pickup height! Just too low for the mix mode to work.

What do you guys think of the neck pickup on the JS2480? Its certainly not got the pure magic of the Paf Joe, anyone prefer...

Re: Frets of this 2004 J. Custom: are they new?

Plenty of people don't play their more expensive guitars for fear of damaging them! Looks good to me.
