    I just bought an Ibanez RG2550 with the Edge Pro Trem. I whammied it a good amount and it managed to stay in tune fairly well. However, I just noticed that when I bend the high strings (high E, B, and G) like a crazy madman, basically as hard as you can just to see what happens, it throws the...

    Are Jem's upgraded RG's? Why are those much more expensive than RG's?

    Maple or rosewood? All my Ibanez and PRS guitars are rosewood, so I've never really spent any serious time with a maple fretboard. Is there really that much of a tonal difference between the two, or are the differences more to do with the general feel of the maple compared to rosewood, or purely...

    Hi, For many years I've been playing my Yamaha with a Wilkinson. I've removed the bar, so I don't use the unit for vibrato. But I'm getting another guitar now, which will be my main guitar, and it will have a Floyd Rose unit. It allows me to play more expressive, I find. So I thought I'd post...

    Decisions decisions. I've got the choice between a black '99 RG550 and a silver '05 RG2570, $600 and $500 respectively. I've played both models and don't really have a preference one way or another. Can anyone give me some more info that might sway my decision one way or another? Disregard...

    Hi all, I am really looking forward to buying my first Ibanez guitar! After having used a Fender HM Strat ('89 model, the kind of guitar Greg Howe used to play) for quite some time now, I'm on the market for a competent guitar with a floating trem of some kind on my guitar, because the Kahler...

    Hope someone can help by either supplying one or providing details of someone who can. Can't get any sense whatsoever from the UK distributor - they refuse to answer emails. I will buy from any genuine seller anywhere - postage on such a small item shouldn't be very much. Thanks

    Except for the JEM series, they're the only Ibanezes that I've played and liked. But I don't know... other than that I haven't played an Ibanez I've liked. Maybe it's just me.

    As I was restringing and setting up my Jem7VWH last night, I unfortunately stripped the intonation adjustment screw for my low E string while I was setting the intonation. When I had just started turning the screw, the saddle shot forward with the Allen key still in it, twisting the Allen key in...

    I'm just curious on some thoughts between the older models and the new ones. I'm aware of the ebony neck issue so that is a difference between the two. Why would the '98 or '99 cost as much (or more) then a new one, is there any other difference the older ones to hold it's value so well (if...

    Okay, I know that there have been a lot of threads about this but here I go again. I stopped by guitar center today and was messing around with an OFR on a Jackson, and it seemed to me like it was just as springy if not more springy and not as stiff as the edge pro on my jem7vwh. It also seemed...

    I bought my Ibanez UV777BK over the summer. It was the best guitar I have ever played. Last week I took it in to get a set up done(the neck had bowed in a little due to me wearing it in, and it needed intonating). The guy performing the set up was a Professional Guitar Tech. I got a call a few...

    From what I have read the anchors have to be change to use locking studs on the edge pro trems. Not a complaint just please put the anchors in for locking studs. It would make my life a lttle brighter..

    Question is in the title. I don't understand why the Lo-Pro doesn't flutter as good as the Edge. Can anyone enlighten me?

    Its a 2004 model...bought it off Josh Merva in NH who got it professionally set up as closely as he could to his 2005 (which was in turn set up by Rich). All I can say is - "WOW!!" The guitar practically plays itself. Its playability is bar none. Its SOOOO much easier to pull off fast riffs on...
