    Don't know if this is old news or not, but I've only just heard that the RG770DX is going to be reissued. Advert here: http://www.andertons.co.uk/acatalog/info_RG770DXRR.html I'm sure they'll be popular, but look how much they are charging!

    Another thing I've been considering with Ibanez guitars recently, is that as much as I love the RG shape (both looks and cosmetics) the necks for me are just too damn thin. I thought it could've been just me being picky, but I've spoken to a lot of guys locally who always say things along the...

    Hi guys. It's been a long time coming (since October), but I finally received my swirl JEM from Herc today! The neck hasn't arrived yet (weird USPS) but I'll post pics of it when it arrives. All I can say is that all the rumors about swirl photos are true in this case. This thing is AWESOME...

    Hey Folks, I've got an early 90s RG570 that I'm going to turn into a Frankenstein guitar. The current neck is in horrible need of a refreting, but I'm thinking of replacing it with a wider C shaped neck. I much prefer the newer newer Jem neck profile to the old super thin wizard neck the RG...

    Here is what Ibanez has to offer us S users this next year The first would be KILLER if it didn't have • Middle pickup • Overly obnoxious binding • Wizard II neck instead of Wizard I The second would be killer if it had • Wizard 7 neck The third would be KILLER if it didn't have • Middle...

    I started playing guitar when I was 12 up until I was 16, and then I quit for 4-5 years and now I'm back in the market for a new guitar since I'm playing like a madman once again. I've always wanted to get a better Jem (I have a Jem555 that I bought when I was 14.... bleck...) but I'm not sure...

    Anyone know what this guitar is worth? Ive had it since I was young but never play it. Its a 1972 Fender Strat that was customized with gold hardware and an Official Floyd Rose. The guitar dealer by me said its probably in the thousands. Im contimplating selling it so I can get a new JEM (...

    Hello everyone, this is my first post. Look foward to posting here often.... Now to the questions. Well, I was impressed with a S470 or S520 but then played a RGT42DXFX (fixed bridge) and was totally blown away by how much faster the neck was (effortless to play), the super low action and how...

    Hi guys, im lookin at an high end RGT with an ultra neck. Ive owned a few Wizard and Wiz 2 necks ( i prefer the wiz 2 as its thicker) and im curious how the ultra plays into the equation? What is it's feel and profile relative to the Wizards?! Radii/width/thickeness, and general feel. Any...

    As successfull as the JEM range has been it seem interest is dwindling, the current models are uninspiring and the re-hash of the DBK into a super expensive "exactly the same but with a fragile chrome finish" model does not seem to being the JEM lineage any favours. Why can't they do a...
