    I have had an RG body and neck broken down in my garage for the past 10 years wasting away in a case. Currently it's just collecting dust, but I finally found a local guitar shop that can do exceptional work in a timely manner and figured I would have it painted a custom color. I have searched...
  3. Pickups & wiring
    I have a 91' RG550 and after setting the action to my liking I've noticed that the action is perceptibly higher, albeit not by much, on the G and D strings. Is it possible that the bridge could have been unnecessarily shimmed at the factory, or am I crazy?

    Crazy question: WHY oh WHY are ZR trems only on S models ? Check it out: ZR Vs. Any other ibanez trem. Ball bearing Vs. knife and post gnawing away at eachother. Zero Point Vs. Very small theoretical chance of returning to neutral Zero Point Vs. Huuuuuge problem on light string breaks Zero...

    Hi, Seven years ago I bought a secondhand black Ibanez JS... but I'm not sure about which JS model I have!!! But I have set a goal to myself: Knowing the exact model and year of my precious. But I need your help :) I have seen a million of photos of JS, visited thousand spec webpages, web...

    I honestly never thought I'd be in the position I am. In a nutshell, I played a RG1570 yesterday, and it blows my Jackson out of the water in many ways, and yet it' about the same price... I'm strongly considering selling my Jackson and possibly a few other things and buying that amazing guitar...

    This is one of my two 1995 RG570CT's. It came from the factory with all gold hardware and with a gold LoPro Edge. From the factory it came with a black bar(different bar I had lying around shown). Has anyone seen a gold bar available for the Edge Trems ?

    This is a quicky, just need a quick answer to this one^? thanks
  12. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    just wondering which JS would be close to a Radius... I know there has been major improvements since the Radius (radius, pickups, shape of the neck...). I think the trem system is the same though. what's your opinion?
  13. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    I started an Iceman project. I have an edge II tremolo that I am going to have professionally installed. One day I will likely switch to the Lo Pro edge tremolo. Would this be a direct swap with no complications? Also what would be the difference in tone between these trems?
  14. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    Could someone point me to a site I can order some replacement allen bolts for the locking nuts on my UV777BK? They make these things so ridiculously soft I like to keep extras around, but I can't seem to find anyone that stocks them... and knowing how I always used to strip these when I was...

    Could someone give me a ballpark price range for Caparison guitars? I've looked everywhere and can't seem to find any prices on them.
  16. All Other Guitars (including Prestige)
    I liked the feel of this guitar.. The sound is satisfactory enough for me.. i only started 4 months ago.. But i heard some bad stories about the trem Edge 3. Do u know of any similar spec-ed guitars that wud be less troublesome? I play/want to play iron maiden, metallica, malmsteen, and shred...
  17. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    I was told to go with an Ibanez Edge. But then I have seen Ibanez Edge, Edge pro, Edge Pro 6, etc. I am new to Jem's and please forgive my ignorance, but what is the difference, if any?

    I'm thinking about getting what I believe is a S470 that was made in Japan. Were those equipped with the original wizard neck? It has V1 -S1-V2 pickups in it. Did the japanese s470's ever have Edge trems on them? What do you think one of these is worth?

    Is there any way to remove the pimpling which many cosmo trems develop over time? Will steel wool work, or will that scratch the finish?

    I'm still debating my first purchase, so I wanted to see which guitars the Jemsite crowd favors. If you own your favorite, add a picture or two! :)
