    I notice Rich has two 43mm nuts listed for the RG series: Japanese and Korean, with two different parts nos. Are they the same size (e.g., depth)? I've just received a 1998 RG 570 that seems to have a _way_ high nut; the action over the first fret is _huge_. I just took the nut off to see if...

    I was playing my 1999 570 last night and it would not stay in tune. I've been having that problem with it lately, but it was unplayable last night. The strings are Slinkys and about 2 weeks old, so I don't think they are the problem. I am worried that it might be the trem; i.e. the edges of the...

    Clearing out the 6 strings except my semi-hollow.. So this must go unfortunately. Its an Ibanez RGT42DXFMDR which stands for Neckthru RG with Dark Red Flame maple top. Mahogany body, with Edge Pro II trem. Switched it for Dimarzio DSonic 6 bridge and Seymour Duncan Jazz neck pickups. Blue...

    The Gigir guitar thread got me thinking.... Imagine for a minutes that Rich found $5000 laying around in an old guitar case, and in an absurd burst of charity, decided to give you $5000 credit toward anything he sells. What would you get? I guess the debate is, if you worked your butt off and...

    Well, I got my RG2610 in today, set it up, and I absolutely love it. Here are the pics of my new killer 6 string and my killer 7.

    So I was playing my JS1000BP late last night because I couldn't sleep and something odd happened.... As I pulled on the bar when I did a pinched harmonic on the G string, I heard a subtle "pop" sound. Although none of the strings broke, the G string went out of tune. When I unlocked the nut...

    I have for sale or for trade an Ibanez S7420FMTT. The guitar is in good condition. It has a few nicks/dings here and there around the edges, but nothing extreme or out of the ordinary. The frets have a LITTLE bit of wear to them, but again that's to be expected of a guitar of this age (it's a...

    I've got two RG550RFs from the 'early days' but both have lost their serial number stickers from the back of the headstock. Being Road Flare Red they can only be form either of those two years but is there any way I can work out if they're '87 or '88 models without the serial number?

    I recently purchased an RG1570 and this is my first floating bridge instrument. I am discovering just how much of a nightmare these things can be. I attempted to follow a poorly written guide to tune the guitar out of the box and ended up pulling the bridge up more and more without having any...

    Well I went in to my local store last week and while browsing noticed that a number of the new 2007 models were appearing on the shelfs. A few new S series (320, that blue flame quilt) and RGs (no new Japanese ones yet). I saw the new MTM2 sitting there and I thought I'd give it a bit of a...

    I mean the ridges on the three pads on your locking nuts, of course. Do you have them aligned with the strings so the ridges are vertical? Or do you align them with themselves so the ridges are horizontal? I prefer the horizontal look myself. Unfortunately, Ibanez locking nuts for a long...
