neck plate

    I was recently looking at a 777VDY in person, and the usual breakup/dryout/crackling of the lacquer on the neck plate is so bad that the serial number is unreadable, even under bright light and a magnifying glass. Has anyone seen one that's this bad, and if so, is it a good or bad idea to try to...

    Did all 1980's Ibanez RG's (square neck heel) come with neck plates? I think the answer to this is yes? But I am not certain. Simple question (I think?). I have an old 1987 or 88 RG 560 (again- I think...has a 550 neck, but a non-pickguard S-S-H body) which I disassembled 20 years ago, can't...

    I have an early JS1 which I bought in 1992/3. A year or so after purchasing I removed the plastic neck plate cup, which acts as a spacer between the metal plate and the body. I did it to slightly improve comfort by reducing neck heel bulk, and after much measuring of screw lengths etc to make...

    I recently purchased a 1990 JEM77FP and the neck plate has rather extensive oxidation. I'm looking for some hints or ideas for removing or reducing this oxidation. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    What is the distance from the center of the neckplate to the tip of the lower horn on a JEM 77FP (or any old JEM)? According to the Blueprint on: http://static.keebali.com/jemsite.com/jem/origin/jem777_blueprint.jpg The Perpendicular distance of Centre to Horntip is ~116mm (4.567"), or 88mm...

    Up for sale is my Mint 1990 Ibanez UV7PWH. This guitar is in remarkable condition and has been played very little since I purchased it a few years ago. Comes with original pink-lined UV1000 case. The case has typical nicks and scratches on the outside for being 18 years old. Flaws: -Slight...

    Gday all I won this ibanez body on the bay with a fun bit of artwork on it as you can see. I need someone to help with what I need to set it up for playing. I have a spare Rg550 DY neck with pyramid inlays being installed right now by ET-guitars, and I will buy Dimarzios, maybe in yellow...

    I finally got my hands on a UV7BK! It was rather dirty and poorly setup when I received it so it is in the process of being cleaned and setup... I have a few questions: 1. It has a blank neck plate with only the serial # 2562XX what year is it? I thought it would be a 95-96 but someone over...

    I need a help from the UV pros here. I never held an UV in my hands, only saw them by photos, but now I have a chance to get a '96 UV7BK. Here are the pics the guy sent me, but I'm not in psychological conditions to evaluate them, GAS is boiling. Please tell me if she's worth, at least for what...

    There have been a lot of discussions over these two different colored swirls and of course swirls in general (most Jemsters love swirls). So, of the two, which would you rather see? Honestly we probably would love to see both but if you had to pick just one! BMC see...
