    I was playing my 1999 570 last night and it would not stay in tune. I've been having that problem with it lately, but it was unplayable last night. The strings are Slinkys and about 2 weeks old, so I don't think they are the problem. I am worried that it might be the trem; i.e. the edges of the...

    Hasn't anyone every tried this? Is it possible, necessary, or desirable?
  3. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    Hey guys, have you guys encounter this problem? I just recently found out why my strat isn't always in tune. i found out the neck was glued on to the body, it seems like it was self glued. so i can never get the G string sound "right" always half step up. so i wonder how to get rid of the glue...

    I found a used american made strat with rosewood fingerboard. It has the more modern blocky bridge saddles though. Based on the serial number, it appears to be an early to mid nineties manufacture date. The strat is up for sale for $625, and I've been wanting an american made strat but am...

    I've read a few threads about the troubles with Ibanez's cosmo black finish, how it seems to wear much faster than gloss black. I'm having the same trouble with a used S540, which has the worst wear is on the low E side of the bridge, and wear on the metal pickup rings. I'm wondering, how easy...

    'K', I went to a number of stores and I have been wanting a JS for years. I played every "rack JS" I could find but they were all previously played by someone else, and sadly, it showed. I have been saving my gig $$$$ for months now, and was oh...so...close to having enough. For my birthday, my...

    I've got an 80s RG with the square neck joint. The frets has been giving me major buzz, and it just will not go away with truss adjustments alone. The best I can do with it is raise the action and play uncomfortably. But, I've got a good spare Ibanez Proline neck with an ebony fretboard. It's...

    A friend of mine claims the RG's neck pickup is in the same place the S series. It's the bridge and bridge pickup that is closer. I say that the Ss bridge and bridge pickup are in the same place as the RG in the scale spectrum. But the RGs neck pickup is closer to the bridge compared to the S...

    I'm posting this on here as I can't get any decent answers on the Ibanez forum. This is really pissing me off. I played the guitar again today for a couple of hours and my frets are turning black. WTF!? Here's my post from the other board. OK, this has me completely puzzled. A little while ago...
  15. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    The other day, as I was doing some routine truss adjustments on my Fender American Deluxe Strat, I somehow or another stripped the allen nut at the end of the truss rod. This event is odd, because I always take care when adjusting with truss rods. I barely turned the wrench, and bam, it suddenly...

    First of all, i love my ibanez guitars! But, design improvements i would ask for are; Stronger neck to body joint - i have had problems with tuning stability due to the neck of my 2005 RG1520 moving in the neck pocket - i have solved the problem with shims since but i think the neck should...

    I just noticed my trem springs are vibrating and the sound is coming through the pickup. What's a good way to dampen them? I had to put a sock in the trem cavity, LOL. :D

    Hey everyone - new to the board. I just picked up a 1993 7VWH - the serial number is F325320. It had been thrown around the local GC for a few weeks, and was in pretty rough shape. Lots of chips, scratches, dings, and all sorts of nastiness everywhere. The guitar had been marked down quite...

    Hi, yes I know what you're thinking, another guy with another nose picking questions about....trems!(you're right) So far only had expierience with ofr, and schaller. I'm looking to buy an ibanez prestige somewhere in the near future (a matter of months I think/hope). Anyway, I'm undicided...
