    Hi guys! I really need some help identifying this guitar I bought in the late 90's. As far as I remember the pickups had been changed by the previous owner to Di Marzio, as well as the frets (Jumbo I think). There's no serial number on the headstock, therefore I have no idea what model might be...

    Hi guys, Dimarzio gurus, I'm into extreme metal and I'm use to select pickups that usually have a high resistance. Just bought a Japanese B.C. Rich from the mid 90s and this Dimarzio pickup was in it (I doubt it's the original pup as they originally came with BCR pickups)...

    Hey guys, I would like your opinion on an Ibanez I have won in auction a while back. Neither me nor the seller have any idea what is the series of this guitar, henceforth the title of this thread. The neck is supposedly 1999 MIJ neck, the stamp on the neck joint states RG480AH. The body is a...

    I have this, been told, mid-90s Hamer, with no other markings besides the Hamer, and the serial-Made in Korea on the back screen printed. It has Duncan Designed pickups and gold knobs. It's a deep purple flame top with a binding. Great, hefty, guitar and the action is fantastic. Sounds...
  6. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    Hi, I'm having difficulty identifying whether a trem I have is an Edge Pro or an Edge Pro II. I was sold it as an Edge Pro II and admittedly never did my homework, it has been sat around for ages and now has come the time to sell it. I don't want to sell it falsely like the seller may have...

    Hi guys, I found a guitar which the current owner says is a RG1550 body with a RG570 neck. It seems to me that the body is a RG1550 BK, it has the pickguard, edge pro and look like a RG1550. The neck isn't an RG1550, it doesn't says prestige and it has rosewood fretboard. You can clearly see...

    Hi guys, I really need your help. I have tried to identify the model of Ibanez RG and I confused. It looks like Ibanez RGT3120TDB but with additional single pickup. The humbuckers and single was changed on QM1,QMS1,QM2; and tremolo machine too. The guitardaterproject.org said that this guitar...

    So here's an interesting ad for an RG on craigslist: http://nh.craigslist.org/msg/3795184462.html 98 serial number . . . V7/V8 humbuckers, no single coil. . . edge bridge . . . rosewood board . . . hard-to-see dark color . . . I looked at the 1998 catalog and I'm thinking RG520GP? Any other...

    Hi everyone, I was wondering if you could help me with identifying my Ibanez EX Series. I am very confused, as I can't find one like it anywhere. It has a floyd rose, 2 humbuckers and a singlecoil and dot inlays, this would suggest it was a EX270, but it has chrome hardware, whereas the 270's...

    Hi Folks, Ive pretty much stopped playing now and I hate seeing my guitar sitting there not being used so I've decided it's time to sell it on to someone who will actually use it... problem is I have no idea what it is or how much it's worth. It looks a bit like an RG, it has three EMG live...

    I got a wierd-ass tele that's just in my way and I'm gonna sell it, but can't identify it...lol In the pocket there's a stamp that says something like CTL-50R and the neck says TL52-55... My assumption is the R is for reissue. But the thing doesn't really have the neck shape of a 50's tele to...

    Hi colleagues, does anybody know how to reliably identify the DiMarzio PAF Pros of a JEM777SK? Background: Many years ago I replaced the two humbuckers, but for the 20th anniversary of my guitar I want to have everything genuine and original again. Unfortunately I only have one PAF Pro and...

    Hey all. I found this for sale in a city that I'll be visiting some time this year, and I'm wondering about the specific model number. It's the only 24-fret Artist I've seen, and there's no Ibanez logo on the ball-end holder, so I'm a little puzzled...

    Hi all, I've been on the lookout for a new guitar, and have stumbled upon two interesting options: A 1989 540P-II which has seen better days (dirty, some fretwear) for $700-$760 (still haggling) and a mysterious USA Custom for $340-$400. However, I'm sort of puzzled when it comes to...
