    Bought a new trem arm for my lo pro edge and FIRST SHOW, my tech went to pull the arm from the guitar and the entire trem came out of the cavity after an ear broke at the knife edge. He's not heavy handed, so no idea how something this crazy could have happened. Been looking around for a...

    I've been working on the setup of my RG520QS, and doing my damndest to get the thing parallel. I know it's the bottom of the base plate that needs to be parallel- but on my guitar, the bottom of the base plate is not really visible as it's recessed into the tremolo cavity. How can you tell...

    Hey All....... A quick prelude before my question. I have a few Ibanez 7 string "in progress" projects hanging in my studio. For me, the hardest, and/or most expensive part to get, is the Floyd. I know theres the "Edge" and the "TRS". However, up untill last night, I had no idea what the...

So, i decided to to change the item b4...

    Hi all... I like to present my little treasure: An Ibanez RG 4020 QMBS (Prestige) guitar from 1996. Very rare and limited model. Only sold in Japan and few european countries. Bought it as new in 96. It has a beautiful quilted maple finish, gold hardware and the "Petrucci"-electrics. Notice...

    There's a thread I made about my original Ed's Baby (#1) - the original of which is commonly known as Frankenstein/Franky etc. Here's a link, for reference: Click here to review the thread on my original take on Ed's old monster, reassembled last year Though still a work in progress, as I'm...

    I own an Ibanez, RG350DX. It has an Edge III bridge, and I don't know what is the correct angle for this bridge. This is how it looks now: I don't know whether it's right or wrong. My mother tongue is Hebrew, and the combination of English and guitars just doesn't work for me. No one has...

    This just came in today. I've owned about a half dozen Charvels and Jacksons over the years, most of half of them custom shops, but I never had a Bengal and I always wanted one. This one was on "the 'bay" but I bought it privately via a contact I made outside of there. I bought it from a...

    Yo... anyways, yeah I'm cleaning my RG1570 that I threw purple evos in. And I notice that inside the magnet part of the pickups there's this waxy looking shlt. I don't know if it's supposed to be there... or my guitar is just that damn dirty/filthy. Help me out? My paf pros don't have it in...

    I have a quick question for the tech gurus regarding FR type bridges on non-Ibanez's. I just picked up an old U.S.A. Hamer Diablo and have done the setup (oiled fretboard, polished frets, new strings, bridge balancing). When you are balancing the bridges on an Ibanez, you want the base plate...

    I watched a demo off a new tremolo which wont get out of tune, even if a string breaks. They called it StepMax. Anyone tried it? http://sleipnerguitars.com/movies/jamsession3.mov http://sleipnerguitars.com/movies/jamsession2.mov http://sleipnerguitars.com/movies/jamsession1.mov :D No one...

    Well, the Carvin finally showed. Unfortunately, I now know why it was in QA for so damn long... I appears they most likely put a fixed bridge on it and then had to go back and re-route for the floyd, because the route isn't the best fitting I've ever come across. They also didn't install the...

    I just changed the strings on my s470 to lighter guage, went to adjust the tension in the tremelo "SNAP", now the allen key socket just turns without turning the threaded piece. I've done a bit of searching and it seems I've a V1 trem and there's a V2 with a different design to solve this...

    How would I be able to tell the difference between an older Rg550DY and the reissue? I found one at a pawn shop for $349 and I put a deposit on it (of course). I have to be descrete about these things so my wife doesn't found out, so I can't just put it on a card. I should have it in a few...
