  1. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    So I’m in the process of buying replacement parts form my original Edge trem and I need to know if I have to buy saddle shims for it. The guitar is a 450s from 1990. Since I’ll need to match the radius of the saddles with the radius of the fingerboard I’ll also need something to measure the...

    Hello there! I was thinking about replacing my locking nut with the new Earvana locking nut. I'm just wondering If the radius difference between the neck and the nut would affect the string action much and make chord-playing more difficult... I've asked the Earvana guys what was the radius of...

    About a year ago I picked up a Washburn N2 off craigslist with the intention of reselling it. However I noticed the neck was not the usual Chinese made junk that the current N2 is. So I did some digging and apparently the early N2s were made in Korea and are highly regarded amongst the Nuno...

    Hey folks, someone I know is selling an RT450. I am wondering if anyone can shed some more light on them. I believe they were discontinued in '94? Anywho, I don't know too much about it, and am currently awaiting pics. The description sent to me was black with white pickguard, bolt-on...

    Well, in my really slow quest for becoming a guitar tech, I feel it's time to start fretting. I know I should start on simple stuff, and of course, on cheap/disposable necks. The thing is, I've looked around and basically I've found 2 radically different approaches: 1.- Stew Mac: "buy this...

    At the studio I found an old friend of mine, and he was using an RG 7321. Of course, I asked him to try the guitar. :p I own a JEM 555 BK, and I never played a 7 string before. Maybe I'm just too used with the JEM neck. Well, the 7321 neck felt like a baseball bat in my left hand. It was too...

    i recently moved to Canberra (thats the capital of Australia, for our American cousins) from the UK, and had to leave my Jem7V in storage over there, until my brother gets off his behind and ships it here. I have always been a fan of Nuno, so i bought an N4 relic, what a guitar, feels very...

  15. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    to everyone that already owns a Jem Is it really worth it? $2200? and if you compare it to a RG1570 which is like $700, is the Jem "three times" better? One more question, Gibson LP standard or A Jem? Thanks for your attention.

    Here's the deal. I have about $1200. I want to get the best possible 7 for my money, period. I was originally and am still considering a custom Carvin, but I've heard so many bad things about their pickups, and in my mind, one shouldn't have to upgrade the pickups in a "custom" guitar. So, in...

    I've seen an RT650 on the bay and I'm a bit tempted to get it. What sort of figure should I be looking at to get it? I don't think its allowed (is it?) to post a link to a live item on the bay so here's a pic of it I have to say that I've never played a RT650 and I'm interested for nothing...

    Finally got my J Custom from Rich, Yes, just as expected, it's amazing way too beautiful. I will love it forever. Only thing I dislike feel wise is that both of my E strings are a bit high. It's not terrible, but I know it could be better. I've had some experience carving bone nuts, but...

    I've been posting here and there trying to narrow down my search and so far you've all been a really helpfull bunch, so big thanks all round. Finaly I'm in the position to shell out big bucks, having a decent job at last. I've previously owned 550's and 1570's with pafs, evo's, tone zones and d...
