    Hey everyone I recently upgraded my lefty SA160. It's great but suffers greatly trying to stay in tune. I'd like to put in some locking machine heads. Anyone on here have experience with this? Jody

    I apologize if I'm not doing this right. I'm new to forums but I know that this is a great place for the input I'm looking for so here I am. I fell in love with a beautiful s620exfb the other day at a pawn shop and took her home. I'm pretty new to ibanez guitars and guitars with double locking...

    One of my Gotoh Magnum Locking tuners on my 1992 442R snapped off so I am looking for a replacement. Black in color.

    Hi there, I bought a 2009 RG 1570 that has the Edge pro tremolo. I know it doesn't have the locking studs. Since I'm in Europe it's easier for me to buy them here and not from Ibanezrules. Found these: https://www.thomann.de/intl/ibanez_2le2_b.htm Are these the locking studs that I need...

    Hi guys, The locking nut shelf on my 2008 RG3570 is far too high, to the extent where it makes my guitar noticeably harder to play than it should be. There are no shims underneath the nut, so I can't lower it further. What do you guys think would be the best way to remedy this? Should I take...

    This is really odd, bought a nice secondhand RG550 and noticed I couldn't lock the E/A nut clamp it started to tighten then would go loose again. Me thinks knackered thread in the nut...anyhoo noticed the other 2 clams could be tightened BUT the machine heads could alter the string tuning when...

    I've got an RG450M that I bought in December 2013. I've been using it on the road a lot, and it's been working great up until a few weeks ago. The high E string (which is a .009) keeps breaking at the locking nut way too frequently than it normally does, and I have no idea why. I examined the...

    Hello, I ordered a set of grover locking machine heads for my 1451 and the screw holes don't match up. This guitar is meant to be a player so I guess the unsightly extra holes wouldn't matter much. Also, they are true black so they don't technically match the cosmo tight end bridge. I'm...

    I'm looking for an Edge trem + locking nut in gold. PM me any offers. If you are interested in trading, I have a mint Edge in black from an '89 540R. Hit me up with any offers. Cheers!

    Hey guys, so I recorded a video on installing guitar tuners. The Axe in question was my Edwards Viper. I replaced the stock Gotoh's with some Hipshot locking tuners which I really like a lot. Any feedback is always appreciated. Thanks for watching and subscribing!

    Hi guys, do you know where to buy replacement parts, i.e. the "top locker bush" through which the string goes, for the early generation Gotoh Magnum Lock tuners? Apparently these have a different shape than the ones that are currently available and in production. I was told they are...

    On my newest Ibanez with locking nut and edge zero 2, i have found that i can tune the guitar to perfect pitch, as soon as i lock the nut off the strings go sharp. Thiis expected, but it goes SO sharp that the fine tuners dont have enough adjustment in them to tune the guitar. What should i do?

    Where can I find these nuts? It's based on the locking nut but without the locking features?!?!? Pictures are here http://i1021.photobucket.com/albums/af332/tildeslash/display/Ibanez_nut_1.jpg http://i1021.photobucket.com/albums/af332/tildeslash/display/Ibanez_nut_2.jpg...

    Hey guys, just wondering if any of you know if the OFR locking nut pressure pads would fit on an ibanez nut? I have an S570DXQM (blue and beautiful) but I got it second hand, and the guy who used it before me has locked the nut so tight there's grooves in it where the strings have been...

    Help! Anyone know what kind of locking tuners will fit my SZ720 without much modification? Would like to use or at least cover the existing screw holes. Are there a set of Sperzel's that will do what I'm looking for? Thanks in advance! After finding many answers on Jemsite I finally signed up...

    Anyone know what chrome locking nut I should use for my Ultra neck? According to the catalogs, the Ultra's had a 42MM nut but I'm not sure which one to order. Rich's site lists some 42's but they are for JS necks, Thoughts? Any help would be appreciated as I want to get my custom 540R done...

    Hey everyone, I took the Edge Pro trem out of my RG2550EX the other day (using Rich's method of keeping the strings on, of course) to tighten the nut on the arm holder, and noticed that the studs were able to move a tiny bit without the trem installed. I don't mean that the anchors are moving...

    Hi I want to get a dimarzio locking strap. I noticed that on european sites I can't get all the dimarzio colors (it's mostly black, white and the leather/camo stuff). I want the whole color palette (with neon as well) to choose from. What US web sites do you know that ship international? This...

    I just just got an Ibanez Universe, but it's missing the pads and bolts for the locking nut. I can Paypal, but only looking for a US seller. Thanks.
