    Hello there... I'm new to the forum, and got my first Ibanez today after being a Jackson and Fender user for years. I was forced to return my fairly new Jackson DK2M because there was a problem with the tremolo system I couldn't fix, and since DK2M's are out of stock in the UK I decided to buy...

    I picked up this quilted brown RG-520 used today at GC. It's in pretty good shape aside from the typical finish wear on the trem and whatnot and some moderate fretwear. It's still shiny and had the plastic on the trussrod cover. I most likely paid too much but I've been wanting a mahogany RG...

    Are they meant to be replaced? I have one Edge tremolo that has a "loose" knife edge that falls out of the little side slot whenever I take the tremolo off the body to clean the fretboard, etc. Are they supposed to be this loose? If not, should I try super gluing it into the slot?

    My S1520 with a split 5way has a problem. The guitar sounds fine in all positions 1,2,3 (neck HB, neck split, both HB) and even 4 both HB split but....in the 5th position (bridge HB only) the output drops dramatically. It's wierd that it sounds fine split but not in full series. So is it...

    Hi Folks, I have an Ibanez RG 320FM, and am looking to get much better pickups. Based on the research I have done, I conclude that the "safest" bet is to put a PAF Pro in the neck and a Super Distortion in the bridge. I have read in a couple of areas that the Evo's and Breed's are not suited...
