Re: Series/ parallel switch AND coil split switch on jem. Jr

Re the Quantum humbuckers, years ago, I had an RG-620-SOL(mahogany body with a satin oil finish) with those pickups. The middle position(3-way switch unique to that model and the JP that cam a bit...

Re: EMG 81/85 wiring, bad noise

And just a warning to EMG users, don't be tempted to use a Lithium 9V. While on paper, they should last a lot longer, both times I tried to use them, the guitar squealed by itself. Pull out the...

Re: Why do they do setups like this?

As someone that has setup a hundred Floyd-style bridges(and am a huge fan of the Edge, Edge Pro and Edge LoPro), this is how I do it(assuming string/bridge height is already set):
#1-I block the...

Re: 2010 Jem7V-WH identification

FWIW, I also think its a legit Jem. Condition is probably fair-good, and the quality of the refin probably decides between those 2. If the price is right, the few ugly bits could be fixed. Maybe buy...

Re: Pia’s locking nut shims, have 2 on mine...

Not only that^^^ but as you use a guitar and the frets get worn, leveled and crowned, being able to remove a shim allows compensation without resorting to more filing on the neck.

Re: My guitar doesn’t stay in tune anymore.

Or watch some videos on youtube on how to setup a Floyd Rise bridge. Its pretty much exactly how the Edge should be done. If nothing else, it might make you appreciate the work that goes into a...

Re: Weird pickup thing. Is it normal?

No, the pole pieces give the magnetic field a path to the strings (the magnet sits under the 2 coils and in-between the rows of pole screws). The pickup height is handled by the 2(usually 2) screws...

Re: How easily can the knife edges on the Original Edge wear out?

Well, opinions vary, but maybe you need better techs. And, techs are one thing while average guitar players are another. One adjustment, as you say, is likely fine. But I know guys that are...

Re: Does anyone here uses a tremolo stabilizer?

The chapstick idea makes a lot of sense to me and I will be switching to that in the future. Removing the bridge should have no affect on the setup. I have pulled an Edge back, popped the springs off...

Re: Its impossible to find the 30th Jem for $3500?

If I kept every Jem I owned, I could probably sell them now for double what I sold them for, but that's also true of several of the RG and Prestige(before the Prestige name went onto the RG lineup)....

Re: How easily can the knife edges on the Original Edge wear out?

Probably the worst wear is from people adjusting the stud height with full string tension. I also put a drop of oil on all of mine and haven't work out any of the 6 guitars I have with Edge variants...

Re: Is the top mount design of the locking nut increases the Flutter effect intensity

For me, flutter is a measure of how well the bridge is working. Lots of flutter means that knife edges are really clean and nothing is rubbing or dragging. Little or no flutter(without some kind of...

Re: Ibanez Jen BFP tremolo instability?

2 things to look at.
#1-the proper "level" is with the bottom of the bridge baseplate parallel with the body(which might be tough to see if it sits well below the surface).
#2-take a really close...

Re: Ibanez Jen BFP tremolo instability?

For anyone new to Floyd Rose style systems, its near impossible to lock the nut without putting things out of tune(why the fine tuners were invented :)). One more thing; if the knife edges on the...

Re: RG 770

I think the DX refers to the sharktooth inlays up the neck(DX gets added to other models that also have sharktooth inlays)

Re: Ibanez Jen BFP tremolo instability?

Maybe the issue is worn posts, knife edges or both? Or maybe the springs are not matched? If you bought the guitar used, who knows what condition those critical parts are in? In any case, You need a...

Re: Fake Ibanez JEM 555?

I agree on the neck. Zooming in on the trem route, I think it may well be a real 555 body. Maybe somebody dropped in an RG black pickguard(can't see the DiMarzio logo on the pickups) when they...

Re: Please help what Current leather guitar strap on Steve Vai original Evo

I looked at probably 500 leather straps and didn't see a single one that looks like that. It also looks well worn, so could be as old as EVO. My guess is that someone made that for him. Find a good...

Re: Please someone help me!

Pretty sure that somebody has come out with damped springs to deal with the noise. To really test, you might block the trem and remove the springs completely? Maybe check stewmac.com or the Floyd...

Re: Ibanez Experts: New RG5320 "Issues", or not?

Great advice from Wizard Glory, but there might also be another cause if that advice doesn't work. Check the height of the pickups. If they are really high and close to the strings, it could be...

Re: So I just have bad luck with Jems/Pia?
