    I'm planning to sell my Dean doubleneck (7/6-string), which has been my "Les Paul" for a few years. It sounds awesome and it's a good guitar, but I haven't found much use for the 7-string neck and it's very heavy, so it's the guitar I seldom pick up these days (I usually grab my 1989 Ibanez...

    Hi all, I am thinking of getting the S1220 or S1520. They both seem like excellent guitars. music123.com seems to have a great price on the 1520. My questions are concerning the PUPs. 1) Will I need to swap them? I hear they don't have a lot of output. 2) Is is possible to compare these to any...

    I have a 1989 RG560 I bought new back in the day. I was wondering if anyone knows anything about the pickups on this guitar. The two singles are labeled IBZ S1 and the 'bucker (in bridge position) is labeled IBZ V2. Were these IBZ pickups co-designed by Seymour Duncan? What's the general...

    Hi everyone. I've just bought a Ibanez 7-string guitar. But I don't know which model it is. Maybe you experts can help? :) I bought it in a music store in gothenburg. They who worked there didn't know which model it was but they told me that some japanese guys from Ibanez had visit gothenburg...

    Kinda long for a subject line, but that's my question. I don't even see that spec on the prestiges, is there a specific reason for this? I think it might have to do with the thinness of the body. Anyone with suggestions because I'm planning to direct-mount my hums on my S-520EX...
  7. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    Hi, I'm having a bit of a problem deciding what replacement pickup to put in the bridge of my 540S (which is over 10 yrs old - no AANJ! those were the days..) I want something a bit hotter with more low end chunk to it (currently it has the stock Ibanez pickups in it). I'm thinking of putting...

    I have a small humbucker (strat style with two rails) from an Ibanez Reb Beach guitar. I think it's a SB1. My pickup has five wires (Black, White, Red, Blue, Green) - but which one is which? I want to use it in neck position together with a SD Hot Rails in bridge position, and a five-way strat...

    Hey guys. Good news: my first radius arrived...sweet red ride. http://photos.yahoo.com/gkelm Problem... First thing I noticed was the neck needed a tweak, so I popped off the truss cover. The nut appeared a bit chewed, and it was noticable larger than I'm used to on an Ibanez. The normal...

    ok so i have this guitar, it was my first guitar ever... it has what i believe is a mahogony body... i replaced the origional neck with a 1 piece maple strat neck, and it has been painted since i got it... for some reason i cannot get a good sound out of it anymore, no matter what pickups i...

    Hello all, I'm new to the form and have a couple of questions that someone here may have an answer to. I just bought a nice pl2550 off of EBay (#H860093) for $340 US. It looks like a nice guitar, but the seller had it up as a "Jennifer Batten Model". I knew she had been with Ibanez in the...

    I am considering buying a used RG7620, but I want to make sure that I don't get a 7420 by accident. I know the trem type is one way to tell. How do you distunguish between the TRS trem system and the Lo-Pro? I'm buying it from someone that doesn't know much about them and I just have crappy...

    Anyone got a good estimate of what a 1987 model RG550 in a BRIGHT orange color with edge trem and INF pups in an H/S/H pattern with Wizard neck and what i would call fair condition would be worth? The dealer who has it is askin $450 WITHOUT case. Body is in god condition but has a nice finish...

    Now I know there are a bunch of you that also have an RG2027, and I know that MOST of you HATE the pickups it came with and have changed out to Norton's/Steve's/TZ's, etc.... Well, these pickups actually work PERFECTLY with my amp setup, so I'm thinking about changing out the pickups in my 2...

    I'm going to swap my stock Blaze bridge p/u for Tone Zone. I'm thinking of putting an Air Norton in the neck, but I really like the clean sound of the Blaze at the neck. The Air Norton will give me a better distorted sound, but will it sacrifce the clean tone much?

    Ok, I've been wanting a 7-string for a long time (if you didn't know this, you must be a newbie :lol: ) and have a few questions: 1) How much of a tone difference does Mahogany vs. Basswood make? 2) How much would it be to import an RG-1077XL or RG-2127? 3) How different do the pickups in...

    I absolutely love my RG2020X but I have noticed that its magnetic output level seems to be less compared to many other non DE equipped guitars. When I compared my RG2020X to my brothers RG520Q the RG2020 seems a bit quieter overall (they have the same pickups at the same height). Also there...

    I don't know if it's old news but i just read an interview where the guy talks about a new signature model that Ibanez is coming up with, this is the extract: Not really my thing, but some of you may be interested...

    remember the PGM 3 I talked about? http://jemsiteforum.com/board/topic.cgi?forum=3&topic=803&replies=1 Today I went to the shop again I realized that I had overlooked the "new Jem" last time It is the "new" Jem Jr. (isn't that the 555 is called Jr too?) On the back of the head stock, it is...
  20. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    I didn't see that anyone had mentioned this, but it is kind of noteworthy as it refers to a lot of us here on Jemsite: From the Ibanez 2002 catalog: "Thanks to a loyal legion of dedicated Steve Vai/JEM fans (an amazing number of whom are impressive guitarists in their own right) each JEM guitar...
