    My Edge Pro bridge has started to feel a bit loose. If I hold the guitar face-down, the pitch of the G-string drops around 40 cents. I figure it's got something to do with the knife-edges and the pegs or something, but I don't really know what to do about it. Any ideas?

    Hey, It is a common issue for the Output jack nut to come loose often, and I am having this problem with all of my guitars... First is my Ibanez RG350dx, the washer is loose, keep having to unscrew the plate and pinch the back and tighten the front, the screw holes are beggining to get chewed...

    The trem arm on my rg550 with an original Edge is wobbly in the holder. It's not that the holder is loose, I already fully tightened it, and i have enough torque on the bar, but the bar itself wobbles back and forth inside the socket. Any fix for this?

    The volume knob on my RG4EXFM1 is loose and I can't seem to tighten it...now your probably wondering "why didn't you look it up" and in face I did the whole afternoon. The only results I've found are based on plastic knobs like strats have where you just pull them off and tighten the bolt, but I...

    I prefer D tuning (DCGFAD), but I find my strings always feel 'loose' (ie, bends are really easy, strings bounce all over the place if I pick too hard, my low and high E strings will easily slip off the frets). I wanted to try C tuning but I know the strings would be even looser. Is this a...

    i noticed today the input jack on my prestige RG seemed kinda looser than before. also, when it's plugged into an amp if you touch the lead a bit (eg. wobble it slightly, push it around) the sound cuts out. i've had 3 performances in the last 3 days and i'm wondering if i might have stepped on...
  8. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    Hi There! At first I wanna say "hi" to all jemsite.com members so--> "Hi fellas, great to be here... ;)" I was always attracted by the Ibanez JEM models and so I decided to go with a JEM 555bk! I'm quite new to guitar-world so this is my first guitar! ;) Well, I know that there's the...

    Hey! I bought a brand new JEM7VWH in January, and I started playing it frequently. After about a week, the whammy bar came totally loose. It just won't stay in it's place but start turning all the time. I tried replacing those teflon rings with the ones that came with the guitar, but it didn't...

    I'm not sure, but I hope this is the right area to post this in. I'm an Ibanez man myself, so I've gotten used to the tighter string tension on my Ibanez (due to the through-body stringing). So it's easy to tell when a guitar has looser strings. I've noticed when playing an Epiphone and...
