    I have a dearly beloved PR1660 from 1985. Firstly, I have no intention of selling this ever.

    I have never seen anything like this before. An extended fretboard in the nut direction. With a floating trem! Cosmic. I wonder what it sounds like? Or what the tuning would be?

    Hi guys, I've decided to rebuild my RG670 Genesis, a fun little project I think. I've gutted the instrument and will be replacing all the hardware with black. I've noticed there's two rather ugly (but barely noticeable) lines that run either side of the trem/pickups. It's as if the body was...

    Hey! I'm new to the forum but wanted to get some input on a particular guitar since I'm having a really hard time finding any info on it that is not in any asian language.

    Hi, for my birthday this year I'm thinking about purchasing a used USA or Japanese made 7 String with a decent tremolo, preferably Ibanez. I looked on eBay and couldn't find one tht looks good. Hit me up if anyone would be willing to part with their instrument

    Simple as can be! Post your Jackson(s)! As a major Ibanez whore, I can say that Jackson is my second favorite guitar company. There's nothing about them that I don't like! Here are mine. And I'd love to see yours! NOTE* I have no camera, so I had to borrow these pictures from Google. Sorry...

    The reason why I say it is somewhat rare is because, I haven't seen it's equal. It's always a S470SOL and S540SOL. I've seen the name and only the name a few times, like in Ibanezregister and Guitar-Museum etc. but, never any photographs. So here's how I came to own this awesome piece of...

    I have an edge (well the whole guitar) from a 1991 ibanez that I don't use and there may be someone out there that wants it. I'm looking to sell it for a reasonable offer. PM me if you're interested. I live in PA but I can ship it if required. Andy
