    Hi! I'm new to this board, so please have patience with my questions! OK, this is the story: I guy wants to sell his almost complete Ibanez RG dirt cheap (I'm from Sweden so it's kind of hard to tell the price in US$ since guitars are a lot cheaper in the USA than in Sweden, so when I say...

    I'm looking for any Bensalem plate in good condition. I live 20 minutes from hoshino in bensalem. Kind of a cool thing for me to have on a guitar made from Trashpicked parts. I'm willing to pay $35-40 for a plate with or without a gasket. I dont need neck screws. Please pm or email me @...

    Hi everyone, I need a favour. I'm building an RG six string body for someone, but I only have a seven string body to copy, along with the jem blueprint from this site. This is all fine except for one thing. The jem blue print is non-all access neck joint, whereas the body I'm making is AANJ, so...

    I have an new S470 with the ZR trem, and every time I do up-pulls the whole guitar goes flat. It goes back to be in perfect tune after a divebomb. Is there any way to get around this? What I've read this is a very common problem with Floyd Rose-equipped guitars.

    Does the Edge Pro need to be level at both the treble and the bass side? In other words, will having my action set at 1.5mm on the treble side, and the action set at 2.5mm on the bass side, effect the Edges ability to stay in tune? I went to Riches post about setting up the Edge, and followed...

    Hi, basically I just want to know how you can find out if you overtightened the screws that hold the neck in the neckpocket? I removed the neck on my UV777BK to clean it up. The screws were on there very tight already and I put them back on really really tight (what that means is basically that...

    Pics at www.ericsguitars.com/rg565parts. This is a project/beater. Make no mistake. It is complete minus the Edge, single coil, truss cover, and neck screws. BODY: It has an amateur refin on it that is ok (5 out of 10) but too thin. The original electronics cavity holes were filled and ther is...

    I'm new to doing my own guitar set-up, so of course I have tons of questions. One that's been bothering me is how much to torque wood screws (neck screws, trem plate screws, pickguard screws, and nut screws on the new nuts that screw right into the neck). I have a habit of stripping wood screw...

    I just got my new baby delivered today: a 2004 RG2570! It came in the factory box, so I assume it was set up at Ibanez. The set up was pretty bad. So of course the first thing I did was take the guitar apart. After I took the neck off the body, I discovered there was no neck shim inside...

    Body Signature Front Case Pawn shop special :) (SUCKERS!!!) It's a USA Custom ESP from '89. Tons of research on the net have come up empty. After cleaning it up and setting it up, I can tell it's been played a lot, but surprisingly well taken care of. The EMG is original, it's routed in...

    Well, for me the end of first semester in my last year of highschool is here, and I only need my english credit to graduate and a couple of misc courses. So im thinking i might take 2 shop classes and build myself a guitar body. I obviously am not going to build the neck myself, i might just buy...

    Ok, really, have people lost their minds????? A couple of weeks ago, I bought an RG760 neck, in really nice shape, for $120, what I figured was a pretty good deal, but not TOO far off. More recently, an RG750 neck sold at auction for $380!!!! How big an idiot do you have to be to pay $380 for an...

    So, how exactly do you know when the neck angle is set properly? What do you look for? is there an exact science to this or is it setup to one's personal preference? I gotta 2002 Js1000 and I removed the neck to sand it down and there was no shim in the pocket. So when I reinstalled the neck I...

    I've JUST noticed this: I recently bought an used rg2027. When I 100% depress the bar (pull-down) I hear a squeaking-wood noise located inside the neck pocket. In fact, after a full bar depression, if I push with a little force the neck area close to the body, I hear another subtle squeak and...
