  1. All Other Guitars (including Prestige)
    I am hell bent on getting me an Ibanez with a neck that has a profile true to the wizard/super wizard dimensions. In one of the other threads i have been informed that J-customs no longer really come with the dimensions that Ibanez advertises on their website. The neck should be 17mm at the...

    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...

    Hi, everyone, this is my first post here :) I like the look of these forums! I didn't really know where to post this, as it's not necessarily just about "other 6-string Ibanez" guitars :P I'm looking to buy a guitar in the £1000/$2000 range. I learned on a Yamaha Pacifica 312 and a £50 Peavy...

    I just bought a Yamaha Saxamophone for my daughter Lisa ...no, my daughter Aoife ;) , so my early 80's Artist funds are almost gone. I was hoping to get a nice hardtail guitar and I'm now looking at getting a Tele. I had one in the 70's and it was nice, so why not? So, if you wanted a maple...
  5. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    I'm embarking on my first project and through a mixture of naivety and simple bloody stupidness have come upon my first hurdle.. I bought a cheapo body off the bay which it seems is either an RG220 or 320 - the seller wasn't sure but since it's routed for two humbuckers I was happy enough with...

    I need some help here picking out a guitar here guys. Basically what im looking for is a RG prestige (or atleast something without one of the crap ibanez trems, which makes older rg's an option) that is HSH. Some things that i would prefer is a maple fretboard, flame top, or a pickguard (not...

    While at GC today, I played a $2099 Suhr Tele. Then playd a $149 Squire Tele. The diffenece? A whole bunch of money. That's it. The tone was a little different. But not $1800 different. Not even different enough for the average person to notice. And get this. The Squire was set up and...

    I have 2 RG 470s and a 570 on the way. I'd like to try a maple fingerboard, and I notice those are scarce. What are my best options? Will a 550 neck work with/out significant mods? I see 550s with maple f/boards. I did a search herein and saw some mention of having a luthier take a rosewood...

    Would a RG750 neck work on an RG550 body? And vice versa? thanks

    Hey guys, I was wondering if you have ever played them or seen any custom guitar luthiers that make them. I just recently learned about the wonders of Greg Howe's fusion playing and when I saw this guitar I knew I had to have it hah

    I just saw the video posted on the Paul Gilbert Reverse Icemans thread where PG praises his custom Reverse Icemans and a newly designed PGM301 for having thicker necks (Reverse Icemans) and a thick, old-school block neck joint (PGM301). Why? Because these thicker parts supposedly give thicker...

    I'd like to get some opinions on this. I've owned at least 20-25 Ibanez guitars over the years. Mostly RG models but I also had a JEM and a JPM model for a while. Now I realize that Team J Craft is a specialized group of Ibanez's most experienced builders and the VAST majority of their guitars...
  14. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    Thinking of getting a UV (old ones) and have a few questions regarding them. 1) I have heard the frets are smaller on these compared to say the RG7/K7 series which I have owned in the past. Is the difference really that big? Are the smaller frets noticeable? Is it a down fall for someone who...

    The back story: Picked up the guitar used for $350 from a local GC about a month ago. First, I replaced the locking nut to correct some buzzing on open G and B strings (couldn't fix it during setup). Next, I sanded the paint out of the neck pocket, which was a reasonably quick affair resulting...
  16. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    I have always played an AANJ Ibanez RG7, K7 or whatever. However I feel my next guitar might be an old school UV. How does the old neck joint compare to the aanj? I dont play that high that often but would like to when I can. Just gimme comparisons I guess for the joints? Does it hinder your...

    As new RG20th in RFR sold on the UK 'Bay yesterday. For £450. Ouch.
  18. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    Hey all! I am soon expecting a Jem 777SK, but i just occured to me that i want a guitar that will do a much different job. I've played a few sevens, but i was told the universe is really one of the best ones out there. It would seem they are easy to adapt to because of the neck. Would anyone...

I have 8 Jems for sale here. Here are some things to know about me and my guitars: 1. I have never...

    Dear Jemsite, I just signed up late last night after a member at Ibanez Forums.com referred me here. I used some of the documents on this website before for research, but it had never occurred to me just to join the forums in the first place. Il cut to the point to save your eyes some...
