    I'm trying to find info on the neck profile of the 2003 to 2008 SZ guitars. They are a set neck and the specs just mention the wood type and layers... no mention of the profile as in "Wizard II" or whatever. Anyone have one that they could compare to another guitar or measure? I heard that they...

    1) is there a functional difference between 1 and 3 piece maple necks? What about 5 piece maple/walnut necks? 2) Why does the neck on the RG350DX look like the frets stick out past the edge of the neck? (see this pic from Ibanez.com: link) The non DX models don't appear to have that issue...

    Hi, I have a '97 RG505 and a '98 RG548. Both have the wizard II neck, but the neck on the RG548 feels altogether chunkier and fatter than the 505. They are supposed to be the same. On close inspection the neck profiles seem the same, and it wasn't until I looked really hard did I notice that...

    Hey, I'm looking for a second-hand Ibanez rg, so which models fit into these specs: Mahogany body + quilted/flamed maple top(prefer brownish or dark blue color) H+H pickups dot inlays, maybe tree of life would do in particular cases neck: maybe not the thinnest one(?), dont know so much about...

    http://www.made-in-china.com/showroom/bobostarxd/product-list/catalog-1.html These look good at first glance. The auction site must be full of them passing as real. I've been looking at Gibsons on the bay. It's a little scary to think I could end up with one of these by accident.

    Hi guys, title pretty much says it all, im getting interested in doing some of my own fretwork (i have some dodgy necks to practice on!) and was wondering what tools the people on this forum to be the easiest to use/most accurate. can you use a big radiused block with an abraisive on it to rub...

    Are they normal models or no name models like the IBZ pickups?
  8. All Other Guitars (including Prestige)
    I am hell bent on getting me an Ibanez with a neck that has a profile true to the wizard/super wizard dimensions. In one of the other threads i have been informed that J-customs no longer really come with the dimensions that Ibanez advertises on their website. The neck should be 17mm at the...

    Hello everyone. As the title mentioned, I need some help on deciding to buy this guitar or not. I'm a total Ibanze newbie and not much of a guitar player either(too lazy to pratice and have short fingers on top of that.^^; ) Heard Ibanez necks are less wide compare to standard ones so maybe...

    So the body is going to get stripped and stained, blackburst, with dark red in the middle fading to black on the outside. I figure I'm going with the original Edge, or a lo pro version. But the neck, ahhh the neck. I want something SUPER cool, but the neck humbucker comes right up to the edge...

    I have been playing 20 years - mostly blues/hard rock. I mainly play a strat but I was looking for a change from the standard Les Paul / Strat guitars. Which is a good JEM model for me to check out? Is there a $1500 model or are they all over $2K. Also - which non-Jem ibanez model compares...

    Hi all, I've been looking over these forums for awhile and I've finally registered up and joined. I must say this board has quite a lot of helpful advice and lots of mature members. I just have a simple question regarding cleaning an Ibanez neck (not the fretboard, as most search results seem...

    I took apart my first ever guitar the other day, a Strat imitation, and I want to tweak it up a bit because I love the thing :') I won't bore you with my ideas, instead I'll jump to the point: Am I able to get a nice JEM maple neck onto my Strat style body without having to do extra routing...

    At the studio I found an old friend of mine, and he was using an RG 7321. Of course, I asked him to try the guitar. :p I own a JEM 555 BK, and I never played a 7 string before. Maybe I'm just too used with the JEM neck. Well, the 7321 neck felt like a baseball bat in my left hand. It was too...

    Back in the day I bought my RG1570 used, it was shipped without the tool for adjusting the trussrod. Now with my own socket tool I can adjust the trussrod only when all strings are taken off which is no way good because we need strings to be in tune to adjust the trussrod! Where do I can get an...
