    Hi there, After discovering how fragile the metal is on this bolt, I needed a replacement, after 2 attempts from Thomann where I bought it and a 2 month wait for them to get the part in stock, I removed my trem(with great difficulty I might add, using a flat screwdriver) to discover the edge...

    I have been playing 20 years - mostly blues/hard rock. I mainly play a strat but I was looking for a change from the standard Les Paul / Strat guitars. Which is a good JEM model for me to check out? Is there a $1500 model or are they all over $2K. Also - which non-Jem ibanez model compares...

    Took some time off this weekend to make changes to my RG2550E - new smoked gray mirror pickguard, H-H pickup configuration, VLX91 super-switch and locking studs (which cost me an additional £11.50 in customs :/). Current pickups are Evo neck and Breed bridge, but I'm still looking for an Evo...

    Okay, I'm getting a bit frustrated here... I've had my guitar refretted, but since the old frets were really worn, and it now has spanking new 6105 jumbo frets, there isn't enough clearance at the first fret. So I've been looking for locknut shims ever since. I want my guitar to be as good and...

    Hey guys, My older brother has a 90 or 91 Universe UV7BK. He hasn't been using it for months. I, however, wanted to play it so I began getting ready to restring it. Unfortunately, the nut pad for the low B and E string was missing. I couldn't find it, so I took a pad from a nut I had lying...

    Hello from Finland! I was wondering if here are others ibanez owners who have made scallopings to the fretboard? I did mine two years ago for my S 370, scalloped the whole board with very deep scallopings. It took me long time to get used to it, but now i don't wanna play guitar without...
