    Reviving an RG with a new Edge Pro and have the chance to go Cosmo or Chrome. What's the consensus on finish longevity; I hear a lot (and see a lot) of used Cosmo which has "faded" (due to palm muting, etc). Does the chrome finish wear just the same?

    Ok, well, I'm thinking about grabbing another guitar and I want a real 80s shred monster thing. Floyd rose, 24 frets, the whole deal. Price is not a concern at this point as I want a real beast of a guitar. I want that 80s shred sound and the slick fast neck. My influence is John Petrucci.

    Greetings, all! I'm new to the forum here and to Ibanez in general, as I just bought an early RG550. Very cool and I'm looking forward to further exploring the Ibanez line. Right now I'm very interested in JEMs and the JPM models. However, I'm having trouble finding information on the JPMs...

    I made a thread a few days ago asking if anybody had ideas on how to dress up badly worn and pitted cosmo black hardware. It was posted in anticipation of a used 540S I bought last week and I was waiting on. Now that I have the guitar, and I found out that it's functional and didn't fall apart...

    My RG7620, although a very nice guitar looks really boring. I think I am going to modify it to look like one of her six string sisters, but haven't deceided yet... I would like to do a UV7RB rootbeer, but I think I might find it hard to find pink 7 string Dimarzios. Has anyone routed a 7620 for...

    Just like the Xiphos 7, there has been a lot of interest over at sevenstring.org about a 7 string RG (mostly people say they want one that is not made from basswood). I'd buy one. It would be the answer to many people at ss.org's prayers, ha ha. Just a suggestion.

    I searched the site and came up with nothing; if there's already a thread on this, I apologize. Anyway, I have an RG20th and the trem needs to be replaced. I thought this would be a good time to try out the Edge Lo-Pro. Is it directly swappable with the Edge? Can it be replaced with no routing...
