  1. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    Hi All, I was hoping an Ibanez expert could help me out. I LOVE the neck on my Roadstar II RG140 and would like to build or buy a guitar that has the same neck dimensions and feel. Maybe you'd know: Width at nut fingerboard radiuses (I guess a compound radius?) and fret wire size Shape? I'm...

    Good day, All. I'm in the process of purchasing a new Ibanez J-Custom (if possible) to replace my worn out '91 Jem77FP. The 2009 J-Customs have 1 of 2 neck profiles: Either the Super Wizard or the J-Custom neck profile. The RG8420ZD and RG 8420ZE both have the Super Wizard profile and The...

    Hello!! I have picked up and modified a korean PRS tremonti with EMG's, graphite nut and spertzels. So far so good! I love the combination of an all mahogany guitar with wrap around bridge and EMG's. it just gives me a different sound that i like. HOWEVER!!!! The neck annoys me and i picked...

    I have a friend who owns an old RG with the wizard I profile on his neck and he decided that that profile was for him. He wasn't happy when he realized that Ibanez generally only make guitars as thin as the wizard II so he did a bit of research and found that the J-customs still have that...

    Well, I got a great deal on this. I had to sell pretty much everything else to pay for it (I try and work a zero sum game on my guitar hobby) but it's worth it. I used to work at Washburn and had a N4 back then that I liked too, but this one is even better. White stain on Swamp Ash with aged...

    I'm thinking about making a strat styled guitar this summer and the player I'm making this for says he prefers a 1987 American Standard neck. But I have no idea what the dimensions are! I'm planning on a custom headstock and I'm not really going for a dead on replica... but player comfort is...

    How do the Iceman's play compaired to an RG? How do they sound, simuliar to an Explorer? Do the bolt on models still sound like a warm mahogany bodied guitar?

    So I finally got around to taking pix of my new acquisition since Sept. Serial# F145xxx, presuming it was made in 91, it technically has the same first 4 digits as my UVGR. Got this from a fellow Jemsiter (Ibanut) and he asked me to keep the original parts if I ever modify it. I had planned this...

    I am looking for the neck dimensions for the 1077XL which I know is a wizard I prestige. I thought I would ask on here as I am not sure if the normal Wizard I prestige profile for the 25.5" necks is the same as the 27" 1077xl. Thanks
