  1. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    Hi everyone, My guitar is 20 years old and during all these years it has been used quite a lot. It's time to change the bridge because it has problems with keeping the tune after using a whammy bar. Knives were sharpened but there are still few more parts to change and they're not easily...

    I just got an MIJ RG470 with a Lo-TRS tremolo, but with no bar. After some research, it looks as though the replacement bar is the threaded kind. I actually really dislike threaded bars, so my question is, can I replace the trem arm assembly on the Lo-TRS with a Schaller trem arm assembly? I...

    Hello, I'm new to the forum, and I suppose this will serve as my introductory post! I don't like the feel of my Gibraltar bridge on Ibanez Iceman (a 2013 IC500B.) The corner digs in my hand when I palm-mute. Two questions: 1. Is the Gibraltar 2 any better than the original for palm-muting? 2...

    I have a black SZ320 that I think would look awesome with gold hardware, so want to replace the existing bridge with a gold version. I saw one on eBay from China, and there are some German websites that seem to be selling them, but I would much rather purchase one from someone/somewhere in the...

    I noticed recently that when I bend the high E, the note chokes out. After inspection, its very clear that strings are not perfectly centered in the bridge saddles, the worst being on the high E. I took the strings off and removed the bridge to take a look at everything, and the saddles were...

    I've been looking into upgrading the "Standard Double-Locking Bridge" on my RGAR42FMT. After checking the what-fits-where chart, I would like to go with the Edge Pro over the Edge because the low profile appeals to me. However, before I invest the money into this project (which will also require...

    I keep snapping the high E string on my bridge. I don't know what bridge it is but you can't tell from the image I uploaded because that doesn't work. Although I uploaded an image of the saddle, it was apparently removed. But from ibanez dot fandom dot...

    I have an RG652AHM with an Ibanez Edge bridge tuned to E with 10-46 strings. I have the bridge parallel with the body like it should be and I've tried blocking it with a bunch of different things, and I want to block it on both sides so it acts like a hardtail and I am able to do things like...

    Hi there from Singapore: I have an old JEM 7VWH I purchased in 2009. It's been played a lot (but not in the last 1-2 years or so) and has... issues. I wish to sell the guitar (or spruce it up to a sellable condition), and I removed the strings a couple of weeks ago but was caught up with life...

    Hello, I've got an old GAX70 that I've put some nice cheap pickups in (axetech Steam Hammer) and thought I'd use the opportunity to put on my favourite Ernie Ball Power Slinky strings to replace the slightly smaller gauge that it had before. I'm not sure what they were. Anyway, now I can't get...

    Hello everyone I have a guitar with one of those plain "normal" bridges. I can't post links yet, if you google RGAT62 it's that one, and I was thinking about changing the bridge on it. Bit I can't find a schematics for Gibraltar anywhere online, something like those that Hipshot has for their...

    I picked up an Ibanez SA560MB and I love the feel of the neck, the Dimarzios sound nice - aside from the setup which was a travesty and the fact that the back is a solid dark matte finish, not the red wood look on the Ibanez site photos, which will teach me to order online, I'm ok with it. But...
