Re: Ibanez 2020 Catalog + NAMM

Balaguer has a semi custom type ordering system where you can select from a pre-determined list of options. I think you can call and maybe get some more options as far as pickups. It's probably the...

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

It's a collectors guitar. Very few musicians have this kind of money and with the possibility of theft at every gig that makes even fewer that would consider buying it as a players guitar. With the...

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

Gotoh makes some shorter knobs that are basically the same as the Ibanez knobs. I switch to those on my trem equipped guitars. I can't tell by looking, but those may already be them.

I was trying to quote this, but guess I hit the wrong button. Anyhow, just noticed my reply above looked out of context so hope this helps it make sense.

Re: Help...Two serial numbers on the back of RG headstock?

Mines more like a third or a fourth at this point!

Re: Ibanez 2020 Catalog + NAMM

Turns out, no one wanted to pay $5000 for a Prestige RG with a different fretboard and paint color so they scrapped it.

Seriously though, Fujigen places themselves at the top of the guitar...

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

This is golden!

Trying to find a factory made guitar that fits every spec I'd like is never going to happen. Guitars that are modded and relic'd from actual use are the most interesting. Tells me...

Re: Help...Two serial numbers on the back of RG headstock?

I have an RG1202 from '97-'98 I think and it also has two serial numbers. One of the first Prestige models!

Re: Prestige RG5220 or 5120M (Fishman vs Bare Knuckle), opinions please

I had the RG5221 and the RGR5220. I played the RG5120M at a local GC.

Both are great so you can't really go wrong with either. The following is just my opinion so you know how that goes.

The...

Re: ** 2019 RG550DX on the way: what switch does it have? **

Since this was already here I figured I'd add on.

What's the best 3 way switch that'll swap right in? Going to replicate the RGR5220M wiring. While we're at it if anybody knows the part numbers to...

Re: Ibanez 2020 Catalog + NAMM

Yeah, bright green not exactly meant for the snooty crowd. I wish they had done the same "Ice" treatment a the blue one, but that doesn't matter now. I really wasn't in the market for one, but found...

Re: Ibanez 2020 Catalog + NAMM

I like the white binding as it really gives those side dots something to contrast against. Easily the most visible side dots I've seen on a guitar.

Re: Ibanez 2020 Catalog + NAMM

Funny you bring up the RGR 5220M. I just got mine today. Those flat finishes will get shiny spots, but you can also polish the whole body and it gives it a semi gloss kind of look.

Anyway, the...

Ship JS1600 to Japan? Good source for CITES info?

Hey folks,

Hope all is well!

For some reason, I keep searching for the perfect guitar and I recently bought one that has me done looking for now. Trouble is to appease the wife I told her I'd...

Re: RG5121 Review and Comparison

So I did checked the 14th fret B and 18th fret G string and didn't detect any differences so perhaps this isn't something that is par for the course with Ibanez necks.

Also looked up a little...

Re: RG5121 Review and Comparison

Yeah, I wouldn't expect the body wood type to effect sustain, but I thought the fixed bridge and active pickups would have more than what the LoPro with passive pickups did. I do think it is slightly...

RG5121 Review and Comparison

Sup metalheads!

Just picked up a used RG5121 and thought I'd offer up some opinions and comparisons.


I want to start with the neck profile. I have an Uppercut RG6UCS. Both guitars say they...

Re: RG652 Prestige Fret Buzz on E+A?!

There's a thing that looks like a triangle for locating high frets. It's called a Fret Rocker and it's cheap. You just set it so that it covers three frets at a time and see if you can wobble on top...

Re: Price check

Don't kill the messenger, but you've probably got more in upgrades than what you could sell it for. Probably be pretty lucky to get $250-300, but I'm no expert. List it on Reverb for whatever you...

Re: 7 String Questions

Looks like quite a few views but no answers. Sometimes it just takes some google-fu to figure this out. Some places to start are the RG7620. It's a late 90's early 2000's model, but I haven't seen a...

Re: Tonewood, Finishes, and the RG5000's

So to my amazement, my local GC just got an RG5120M so I went down to check it out this past weekend. Only Prestige I've ever seen there. I decided to stick with my Uppercut, but the guitar was...

Re: Uppercut series, Collectable?

Hey Rich,

Hope life's been treating you well!

Ebony looks good, but man that's quite the premium.

I will say the RG6UCS is an incredible guitar. But as it typically goes, there's things I...

Uppercut series, Collectable?

I think the answer is probably no, but just curious if anyone thinks the Uppercut series guitars might be slightly collectible since they only made them for a short time and in small numbers?

I...
