  3. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    Hey, im having a problem with my washburn n-2. Its been like this for a while but basicly what happens is when i play the 21-23 frets on the high E instead of sustaining like it should with a fernandes sustainer fitted, the notes die out incredibly quickly and it almost sounds like its hitting a...

  8. Pickups & wiring
    I have played a Xiphos recentley and the sustain on high frets is very bad. In this thread I want to know one thing. Might this be because of the D Activator pickups? SO, I want to be clear. 1. This is about the low sustain on high frets. 2. The question is whether the pickups might be the...
  9. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    Hi, I started a similar tread in the section for pickups and wiring. I think the sustain loss on high frets it's not very much about pickups and wiring. This is why I start that tread again in the right place for now. I heard about scalloping the last frets and "infinite sustain" technique...
  10. Pickups & wiring
    I recently played a Xiphos and I noticed the sustain is very low on high frets. Also the sound gets thiner. The same problem I noticed on other guitars I played. Is there something that can be done? Do you know why? Is it something about pups?

    This is the first mod so far on my Ibanez Roadstar II 1985 that I got for free a half year ago. I posted about that in a different thread so I'm not gonna write the whole story here. I have ordered cream white pickguard material and black pickup covers without holes. I like the EMG look but...
  14. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    Hi, i just bought a second hand neck and put it on. I was told it from a rg570. Basically im getting a few dead notes and i can see that its caused by some frets sitting slightly lower than the rest, and quite alot of the frets seem to have raised in the middle so there is a slight gap between...

    Are the AANJ beter guitars then the ones with square heel neck joint? I am asking becouse Reissue of the rg550 has square heel, and not like "newer" RG550.
  16. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    Hi Folks, I have a bit of a weird problem that started a few days ago. Whenever I go to play an E note at the 12th fret on the high E-string, it sounds dead (along with fret buzz). All of the other notes in the surrounding area sound perfect. The strings are about 6 months old, and I haven't...

    Since there are a lot of great guitars on here and I, too, really love JEMs - I was wondering if you guys had a chance to check out Bernie's stuff yet. I bought the very first Jekyll 627 27-fret from him. His guitars are amazing - they have that cross between the old Hamer Californians and the...
  19. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    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...
