    I have a RG2550 Prestige that comes with Edge Pro, I've noticed that the tremolo bar that comes with it is significantly heavy that it affects tuning stability. I have noticed the Edge Pro itself is a rather heavy tremolo unit so tuning is affected when the angle of the guitar changes while...

    So I found a .62 to use as a low B. Upon tuning it up I can't help but feel like there's now too much tension. Anyone know what is a good gauge for a low B? I am keeping the pitch at B. The rest of my string set is .09-.46. I've seen threads about this before but couldn't find anything that...

    Ok so I have a question, and I think I already know the answer but since I never did this I thought I'd ask and hope, maybe I'm wrong. Ok so I want to try bigger gauge strings and try a lower tuning, maybe D or C. The guitar in question has a floating trem of course, its a RG 2550 with...

    I am selling my 2004 J Custom RG8670 TB. This guitar is in almost new condition (less than 5 hours playing in 4 years) with a certificate rash on the back from the poor packing prior to shipping and some very small and expected pick scratches. This guitar comes in a UV1000 case and comes with...

    I gather all JEM Vine and Pyramid Fretboards are quarter-sawn. Got some totally Flatsawn ones from a seller (MonsterGuitarShop) and the fibres at top frets looks too flimsy, making durability questionable. Does anyone know if this Flatsawn surface Will affect durability? The strings...

    I've seen a lot of times, Jimi Hendrix being the first, that some guys simply remove the cover of the springs cavity on the back of the guitar. What's the advantage of doing this?

    After a bit of help from you guys.... Now that I have taken all that gold hardware off my jem 7vwh and started playing it again, I am finding that i have to back off to 1 on the volume before there is a noticable clean up of the sound. (Semi high gain on a fender supersonic) On my pgm, which i...

    Hey i changed the strings on my friends hardtail Ibanez and the bridge just kinda popped out from its cavity. I took some pictures of that: How do i fix that? Should i adjust the neck angle or what?

    I got a used rg570. Problem with the trem is that when I pull up, it tightens up. I can still pull up but it is very tight. I looked behind the springs. There is nothing blocking behind it. I push the bar down and it doesn't have the same tightness. It seems like the knife edge is popping out of...

    Hello, I'm a new member and would like to say that I'm glad I found this forum with so many great topics for guitar. I bought a used edge trem off **** and it will not return to pitch after dive or a pull up on my RG. I've installed many floyd units that work fine on Kramers, so I do know about...

    Had to sell my PGM and my Jackson to get it, but nothing i've ever played comes close to a Vigier, and i've always regretted letting go of the ones i had in the past. So here she is: peace

    Can you use 2 springs with a edge instead of 3?

    For sale is a 2007 Ibanez JEM7VWH in as new condition. This was a Christmas gift to me, and I am selling it because I do not like the sheer vibrance of it. I am more of a Gibson person. I got this guitar as a Christmas present and it is in perfect condition. I have only played it in my home...

    Hi, I was wondering about something and thought perhaps you knowledgable JemSite folks could help me out :) I like to use quite heavy gauge strings, usually 12-54 in standard tuning, and so far on quite thick necks like Strats or some Jacksons I haven't had any issues, but I keep on reading...

    I started writing this long, long ago but I never finished it. It has been sat on my hard drive for ages, but I figured someone somewhere might benefit from this information. So here it is... incomplete, but probably quite useful? I don't know. Maybe I'll finish it one day. STRING TENSION...

    Here is a 1999 Ibanez RG7420 7-string electric in excellent condition. Ibanez calls the finish magenta crush, but it's really a metallic light red. The guitar is made in Japan, in Ibanez's Fujigen plant, as you can see from the serial number pic below (a serial number starting with "F" means...

    I had a good GAS week......got four new ones. These two are pretty obscure. First up is a Pedulla......Known as a maker of high end basses,they produced guitars for a while in the 80's. Pretty Gibsonesque,but will walk all over the stuff Gibson is putting out today. By uberthrall By...

    Hope this is in the right section. I've got a strange problem with my RG560. I recently got it set up with 9s in standard E tuning, but wanted to try 10s. I didn't like the thicker feel of them on this guitar, or the tighter feeling of the trem, so I switched back to 9s. (I did adjust the...

    I have a Surf green (MIM) 1999 '57 Stratocaster. I love the feel, and the maple 'v' neck, and the tone is good...but the stock pickups make that "noise". I would like a good replacement set (all 3) for this guitar that keep the Strat-Fender tone but have more flexibility toward humbucker-like...

    I just went through the second edge trem bar, snapped the same as the first time right where the bar gets smaller for the bushings. Does anybody else have this problem? It's seems like a flaw in the bar design to me. I have other bars that "fit" and I can use those. I don't think I'll be...
