    I'm not a luthier so I realize things as I go, mostly before I spend money thank god. I want to replace the neck on my RG350M, I'm about 100% sure it's a 2010 the SN burned into the headstock is I100606 but none of my research was able to find a serial number format to match it. It seems to be a...

    I got this 1994 S540 TTS recently, and the body stamp at the neck pocket is in printed paper. Never seen before, any one can shed more light on this? Thanks !

    I just got a new Ibanez Prestige 7 string and I noticed the neck pocket is not very tight. I had already returned one guitar because of that, and now I got this one where it's not as bad but still I can easily slide two sheets of paper into the neck pocket on the bass side. So, I went to check...

    Hello! I am preparing to make my first guitar project. I am going to use my 2001 RG570 Neck. Does anyone have dimensions for the neck heel? I am mostly asking for the distance between holes, distance from body to holes etc. htt p://ibanez.wikia.com/wiki/File:AANJ.jpg Sorry, can't post links...

    Hi All, I bought a sweet Ibanez S body a while back, pictured here. I thought that my 24 fret RG necks would bolt on easily, but both my 2008 and 2009 indonesian RG necks had holes in different locations. The body is a 2012 Ibanez S570DXQM. Is anybody surprised that the holes didn't line...

    Hi guys & girls, On the treble side of the pocket there is a wide enough gap to comfortably fit a .88 pick into. This results in the neck 'pulling' the strings off of the fretboard - at the first fret, the distance between string and edge of neck is around 3 mm or so, but at the 24th fret it's...

    Does anyone know for sure whether the FGM neck has less material vs. the stock 540 neck or is the neck simply set in to the body further? If it's set into the body further, is the FGM body slightly different (more material) near where the neck mounts up? Or is the pocket simply machined a bit...

    I've had an olp mm1 for quite a few years now, and have always wondered why the top of the fret board sits so high from the body. I'm guessing that it has something to do with cheaper production costs, since i've seen the same thing or something similar on every low end bolt on around, while on...

    Does EVERY BFP have that stamp in the neck pocket??? I checked every detail on my newly aquired used JEM77 BFP, everything looks perfectly original. I checked because I became suspicious about the sound. It doesn't sound warm and soft as in so many recordings I heard. So I started checking and...

    So, I was wondering from all the original FP, BFP, LNG, DY etc 88,89 jem owners..... this neck pocket crack problem. Do you think that these small cracks that appear are just finish cracks or much more serious, like the beginnings of Steve Vai's Evo. That guitar is basically stuffed. I...

    its on my 1995 rg570cttb very hard to see as the paint is dark and not noticable. does not look like it goes all the way through the wood just surface but could be going all the way through. its less then an inch closer to half an inch long from the fret board. i can only see it on one side and...

    Hey all, When I got my 540P-II it had a shim in the neck pocket which I removed. There seemed to be no problem, but I did notice that my trem had a tendency to pop out of the locking studs when the strings were loosened. Yesterday I started expecting it closer, and it seems that the trem is...
