    Hey everyone, so I have had this Ibanez RG550 claimed to be original in Road Flare Red for about 3 and a half years, stupidly never took the neck off after buying it until recently, keeping it as a case queen because of its condition. Now I was always a bit curious about the paint around the...

    Hi, The title pretty much says it all. I'm looking for a replacement tremolo plate for a 1987 JEM777. Not sure if a plate from another year will do. If so, I'd appreciate suggestions on where to find one. Thanks, AP

Frets are in excellent condition...

    Hello guys! I recently bought a 1987 RG560 in Carotene Orange with some Dimarzios on it. I must say, even though it quite beat up, that thing is a beast. It simply blows away my '94 Gibby and pretty much every single guitar I ever touched! Ugly as hell though. The thing is, I never seen a...

    Well I finally picked it up yesterday. It had been abused to hell and neglected. The owner was a nice guy, but didn't really understand floating trems and as a result the trem was sitting right into the guitar. Here are the before pics and a couple of after cleanup and restring pics. Please...

    I'm not positive where this thread belongs, so if you feel it doesn't belong here please relocate it to the correct section. Thanks. I bought an Ibanez RG550 two years ago only to have it hang on my wall for two years. I unfortunately never play it, and it should go to someone who will play it...

    Hello everyone, New user, part-time reader/lurker here! Basically, I'm about to buy a 1987 Ibanez RG DX (can't post pics yet). The owner asks 430€ for it, probably can talk him down a bit though. Specs-wise it's pretty close to being my ideal guitar, BUT other than the original Ibanez Edge...
