  1. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    Hello guys! I was wondering if someone could tell me, how did you resolve this issue with the EZii. So the trem arm, unless screwed down really hard and being really hard to move and adjust while playing, seems to have some space in the holder and the result is this annoying pop sound when...

    Hey guys, Bought a Ibanez RG1570 from the bay recently and I thought it was all good until I checked the neck once it was all straightened. There's a back bow (I think) on around the 3rd or 4th fret on the Bottom E string, but all frets buzz on the bottom E string. Weird, I don't know what it...

    I've got my custom Strat that I built around a year ago. It's really sweet, and has a simplicity and tone that quickly made it my favourite guitar to play. Only issue is that I think the action is a bit too high on it. I can play reasonably well, but I think if I can get the action lower it'll...

    I play about 3 hours a day I have had my 2013 rg since the beginning of the year and I am starting to notice wear on my frets, this is understandable when I take into account the hours I have put on it and my constant soloing and bending. I don't like the sound of this level and crown stuff, I...

    Hi all, a happy NGD turned out to be a sad NBGD, "new broken guitar day" for me. First ibanez for me (after so many years!). Read up and researched and trawl the net and finally drop the money on this beautiful 1995 MIJ RGR470 DW. Reverse headstock, edge bridge, superb condition for a 15 year...

    I've found that the 1st fret on my S is a little low, and I don't want to have to raise the action. Are there any ways of solving the problem without having to pay a load for someone to fix it? The fretboard is bound, if that counts for anything.

    So I dented my RGA121, and tried to steam up the dent with a really hot towel. It raised the dent up a bit, but also dulled/lightened the finish a bit in one spot. It's really thin, flat finish btw. How should I go about fixing this?

    Alright. I had just recieved my CryBaby GCB-95 used and beaten. It worked fine, then one day i brought it out to use it, i clicked down, and no sound came out what so ever. So i bought some new 9volts, used all of them to see if they worked and it turned out the power supply wasnt the problem...
