    Hi guys, any teltale sign to verify if my Ibanez RG 550 Genesis is legit from Ibanez? Possibly the chance of a replica of this particular model might be low but I just want to make sure. Bought this in a guitar community group, not from store. What I did previously: 1. Check Serial Code -Found...

    I have a RG550DX on the way and I was wondering what is the 5-way switch it has in it.. Is it the cheap toy-clicker type I replaced in my 2013 RG450DX or is it a better one? I would like to think the Genesis line does not use those irritatingly cheap 5-way switches in the lower-end models...

    I recently saw a used Ibanez RG (not sure of the number number) that was made in Japan. The serial number indicates it is a 2001 model. Aside from the obvious tributes to the 1987 RGs and modernization, how does everyone think the Genesis series RGs compare to a Japanese-made RG from the early...

    So, I finally bought an Ibanez today. First one! Got the bug a couple of years ago, and I watch everything local like a hawk. Have missed a couple of nice axes, but that's perhaps for the best. This week I noticed a used Genesis RG570 had turned up at one of the Guitar Centers in Denver. Was...

    This is the main event! Purchased from our own Rich Harris. What an amazing guitar-buying experience! I've only been able to play it a little bit but I'm really digging the fixed bridge version of Super Wizard.

    Hi guys, I've decided to rebuild my RG670 Genesis, a fun little project I think. I've gutted the instrument and will be replacing all the hardware with black. I've noticed there's two rather ugly (but barely noticeable) lines that run either side of the trem/pickups. It's as if the body was...
