    Hey guys, it has been awhile. I have the opportunity (read:cash) to buy an RG8520 but I am not sure if i should spend the extra cash for the J-Custom or go with the new RG5320, very similar spec for less cash. How do you guys feel about your J-customs? I have never owned one. Thoughts are...

    Hi all, I've got a really nice, limited run S Series J Custom for sale here in York, UK. This is in *mint* condition - there isn't a mark on it as it has barely been played, and I am careful with my stuff anyway. Apparently there are only approximately 30 to 40 of these in the world. I'm sure...

    After waiting for almost 5 months she finally arrived last week. A beautiful j.custom 7-string. I ordered shortly after orders were taken and I'm overwhelmed to hold one in my hands now. She even looks better in real than on pictures. Like a little chameleon. Different light, different angle...

    I recently bought a JEM7V and while it is an outstanding guitar I kinda feel like I would have to modify it to become "mine". There is nothing wrong with this guitar and it is in absolutely MINT condition. I has got less than 10 hours of playtime! I am mainly interested in Ibanez guitars but...

    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...

    Anyone with experience/ownership of this beauty? It's not a guitar listed in the EU catalogue and there generally seems to be very little info about it. What I'm interested to know is some history on the guitar. Is it actually a ltd edition model and how many have been manufactured? It uses a...

    Sustain problem with j-custom. Some notes are dead. What is your advice? My new RG8550MZ has no sustain at all at the 2nd string 13th fret and 3rd string 17th fret (C 523Hz). The note is abruptly dead in less than 2 seconds. I have discarded vibrations at the bridge, problems with the frets...

    After having sold my new S5470Q due to problems with the sustain on certain notes (a dead frequency), I have narrowed down the search for a new guitar to the RG8550MZ (J-custom) and the RG2770QZA (prestige). Aesthetics apart, the specs of both guitars are very similar, except on this details...

    I just got a new Ibanez Prestige 7 string and I noticed the neck pocket is not very tight. I had already returned one guitar because of that, and now I got this one where it's not as bad but still I can easily slide two sheets of paper into the neck pocket on the bass side. So, I went to check...

    Ordered j-custom from ikebe. How do I pay the import tax / customs duty? I just ordered a $2500 j-custom from ikebe-gakki.com, and it's on its way to me in the US. I know some of you have done this in the past. Can you tell me what I can expect as far as import taxes are concerned...
