  1. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    Hi! Finally getting financial woes cleared up, and about to do some mods/custom build. More than likely, will be asking LGM and EKG if they can do the work I am after. :D Before starting tho, one thing I REALLY want is a 14-string (ie 12-string for us 7-stringers). I heard one of the Korn guys...
  2. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    As I live in the UK it seems that all current production models available are made in Japan. So I looked at some used Jems (777VDY and 777DY) at a local store in the hope that they were US made.... guess what.... Made In Japan! :cry: Is US built better than Japan?? :? ps.. they were...

    I'm looking to get an ibanez guitar... I was looking into the RG570. How is this guitar with changed pickups? What are some Jems that might are good? Should I go for neck-through or bolt-on? Is there much difference? I play 80's metal and Prog rock like Dream theater. I don't want to spend too...

    I got a call from my rep today asking me which Ibanez models from their past they should reproduce. I mentioned the JEM swirl and Satriani guitars, but told him I'd ask around to see what other people thought. Apparently they're thinking about digging into their past and re-issuing some models...

    I'm deliberating about buying a new guitar, and can't decide between the 2002 rg570 vs. 2003 rg350dx. I know of a place where I can get the 2002 rg570 for $370 or the rg350 for $335. I know that the differences in specs between the two and that the rg570, while not in the same league with JEM...

    I'm sitll looking for an inexpensive backup 7 string and I've been checking out the many listings for the various Ibanez models. There seems to have been a down grade on most of them over the last few years: 7521 to the 7221; 7621 to the 7421 to the 7321. In practical terms what are the...

    Just received my USRG30 Trans Black today. Truly a great guitar. One question though. Why is there an S stamped on the back of the headstock? I am so proud of my Ibanez collection, hopefully I can share some pics. My collection includes: 1996 Jem 10 1999 Jem 7VWH 1992 RBM2 NT 1998 JPM90 1992...

    I have been thinking about a Framus Diablo Pro or a Diablo Custom. They seem pretty good guitars, and the only hesitation so far is the fret radius, which is high even near the headstock. Any thoughts about those Framus guitars compared to Ibanez models?

    Hey guys, it's been awhile since I posted, and I'm more into jazz now, so I'm hoping you could help me out. I'm looking for a classical guitar, with at least some level of electronics for under $400. I looked at the Ibanez models a bit, but I heard they had a crappy acoustic tone, that was...

    I think Ibanez electrics are the best value out there but recently I was playing a bunch of acoustics from all different companies. The Ibanez models were disappointing. I played a couple from the AE series, one from a series I forget, and one from the MASA series which was just the worst...
