    I think the neck angle of my RG421 is too high, which is causing my headstock to be at a higher level than my body. You can see in the attached photos the difference in width between the neck and the body as you look towards the left. http://bit.ly/2kjBf4k http://bit.ly/2jQj45u I took the...

    Wow it's been a few years since I posted here :) I decided it was time to treat my RG620QM to some TLC. It was set up a few years ago following Rich's guides on Ibanez Rules. It played brilliantly - nice low action and stable tuning. Today I restrung it with the same gauge strings (from the...

    Hey everyone, i recently purchased an rg550 with an original edge trem. I took the guitar in for a setup and right afterwards the bridge was perfectly level, action felt great, etc. However, when i got back home with it, the strings all went flat due to the fact they were still stretching. So...

    Hello Everyone. I have a bit of a silly question regarding the angle of my pickups. I have a 1993 RG of some sort (I think it's an RG570) I have just replaced the standard pickups with some EMG HZ's. I have an RG320 with the exact same pickups and it's ballsy, but this one just sounds weak...

    Have looked all around the web & haven't been able to find this info. I'm currently modeling an Ibanez RG in 3D and need to dial in the correct angle between the neck and the headstock. From the few side pictures I found on the web, it appears to be either 15 or 16 degrees. I'm intrested in RG...

    I'm attempting to tune my new Jem 7VWH down to Eb. When I did it loosened the tension on the bridge (obviously) and pulled the angle back some. I want to straighten it out and get the proper string tension back but figured I should poll the experts first! I know I have to adjust the truss rod...

    Hi. I've tried so many techniques during my life. I always thought that, as opposed to what many say, pick actually has to be As Parallel as Possible to the string. Yes, you have more resistance from the string, but Less Pick Attack Noise, which translates to cleaner sound. But technique seems...

    Hi guys, my neck and bridge humbuckers are leaning like in this thread: http://www.jemsite.com/forums/f35/middle-pickup-leaning-towards-one-side-98093.html The same problem. Should this affect the sound? The sound i hear is ok for me, but what problems can be caused when the humbucker-pickpus...

    Hi i have an RG350 with an egde II and i changed the springs in it awile ago. Turns out those springs were worse than the original. Now i changed them back but i realize they are not worn in yet because they have been out of the guitar for so long. I waited like 2 days and the tremolo angle...
