    Hello All, I am happy to report I received my second J custom guitar and really like it. I am not the most knowledgeable person when it comes to Floyd Rose Trems/Ibanez Tremolos. At the moment my 1998 Turquoise Flame top J custom is decked basically by having the springs/claw tightened (Lo Pro...

    Apologies in advance for the lengthy first post... I have been a regular lurker here for many years, and I always found the information and the forum community super valuable and helpful. Here is the story: I’ve had many Ibbys - the first one back in 1981. I still own, love and mostly play an...

    I picked up my first Ibanez last year and now I have another. I am loving my Ibanez and want more =D. My only gripe is that I am disappointed in the direct mount system. Maybe system isn't the right word, the pick ups are simply screwed into the body. However, it doesn't take much to widen...

    purchased both of them this year.... the 8570Z has a great mahogany/maple tone (exactly as you'd expect from an RG J-Custom) however, the 8520 has a bit more of a compressed tone, but with same body materials... yes the bridges are different (ZPS for the 8570 and lo pro edge for the 8520), and...

    I'm moving and I don't fully trust the moving company so I want to keep my guitars with me. Problem is I am going to TX so it is hot hot hot and will take 4 days. I plan on putting them in the bed of the truck that has a locking tonneau cover. One is in a case the other a gig-bag. Should I be...

    Just got a new guitar, after a while away from it all. Insane how these necks feel. I've never gotten over how most of the modern J Customs feel so easy to play. Plays really well compared to the RG760 I normally play. Pics:

    I've spent a fair amount of time over the past several weeks working on documenting every J Custom model I could find on the Ibanez Wiki. The result of this effort is this J Custom portal which (as of this moment) includes 192 distinct J Custom models. I'm aware of a handful of one-offs which...

    Does anyone know which Japanese retailer corresponds with the "W" product name code? I'm trying to find information on the WRGR13B which was a J Custom model from 1997, but I don't recognize the W. I know that "I" is used for Ishibashi spot models (e.g. IRG8470F) and "M" signifies exclusive...
