    I have a Yamaha FS100C acoustic guitar. In website it says Fingerboard Radius: R400mm (15 3/4") what does it mean I can't understand as I am a beginner. I want to get a capo for it, so i want to know if it has a flat fretboard/fingerboard or radiused fretboard/fingerboard. I bought Daddario...

    Hey all, I have a mint 1991 RG550 so there is no wear on the maple fretboard. However the frets could really use a polish and I usually use Gorgomyte cloth. Don't really need to do the whole board, just the frets. Never had another maple fretboard. Is there a protective finish on here...

    I live in Australia and ordered a JEM Jr. White at a local guitar store in February. They said it would arrive by early April, so when it got to around the 10th of April I called them up and asked if my Jr. was available to be picked up. They said it had been delayed because of the new CITES...

    Hi, I've been trying to work out if my 2004 JEM 7VWH has an ebony fretboard or a rosewood one. I've had a look on IbanezRules.com and had a look through some threads on here, but I cant seem to find a definitive answer. The serial number is: F0437860 I've had a few of my friends look at it...

    Hey Guys! Is there anyone left in the USA that will swap a fretboard? I'd like to get a Green Vine put on an RG7620 neck. I'm also looking to get a few bodies and headstocks painted and cleared. Everyone seems to be out of business or they tell me in a year or two they may have an opening for me.

    Hello everyone ! I am about to finish a jem project and the last part I need is the neck, I have everything else, I just need a neck. I already asked a couple of websites I know they use to build them, but some of them no longer build them, and got no answer from others... Also made an advert...

    Hey, Just recently joined the forums so I'm totally new here, but was recommended by a friend that this is the place to go for all things Ibanez! Yesterday, I got my hands on a 20th anniversary RG550 in DY. Very happy with the guitar, completely surpassed my expectations and it's in great...

    Hey everyone, just posted a new video to my Axe Hacks YouTube channel on rosewood fretboard conditioning. I go over the method I typically use, as well as the use of Gorgomyte. If you dig the channel, you can subscribe HERE. The guitar in the vid is a cheapie Ibby RG :wink: Enjoy!

    Ok, here goes; I've been playing guitar for some years now, but never really been into the whole cleaning the guitar-thing, which I've planned to make up for in the future.. That's a great plan right? For wiping the strings, frets and the board itself after use, one seems to use...

    Hey folks, I'm in need of some expert validation on the type of fretboard wood on a jem I'm selling. The serial is F519553 and it's a 7vwh. Is that a legit serial # for a 1995 model? A potential buyer seriously believes it to be rosewood and not ebony. I had the guitar verified on this forum...

    I have a RG921QMF, that has the Ibanez Tight End R bridge, basically a hard tail bridge: http://www.ibanez.co.jp/world/manual/english/5.pdf I'm trying to correctly adjust the guitars action on the TIGHT END R bridge so it matches the fretboard radius, which per Ibanez is apparently 400mm on...

    Hey, everyone! I have a question about the barre chords taught in Fretboard Logic. I have been playing for a while but picked this up to get a little more grounding in what I'm doing. So I was confused when the book taught barre chords... am I reading too much into this, or is this odd to anyone...

    Hello everyone! I'm looking for an Ibanez RG neck, would be great if it was made in Indonesia, 24 frets of course, with a MAPLE fretboard, black or natural headstock. I want to install one in my S series (indonesian 24 fret version) since there were no maple fretboards in these. If anyone has...

    It's an japanese guitar, and I'm debating whether to refret it, as I remove the frets, there are little chunks coming out, and the fretboard looks like **** too. I'm thinking, removing the fretboard isn't that difficult, I could get a beautiful birdseye maple neck and just start over...

    Hello everyone, I appreciate the time you take to read this weird thread and share some thoughts, I'll try to keep it simple. Ever since I started playing guitar I always seem to be very profuse to leave fingerboards sticky and grimed after playing. I have played a few guitars which seemed like...

    I just have a quick question regarding the original wizard neck on my '87 Rg550. Is it considered a finished or unfinished maple? I just bought it used and am trying to decide how to go about cleaning it. I have oil finished maple necks on some of my other guitars and for those I clean and...
