    Hi all, due to broken saddle bolt on the Edge bridge (just couldnt find the right replacement), I have changed the whole bridge with Schaller Lockmeister tremolo and it is OK - for the most part. I've found the Edge posts were larger in diameter so I have mounted the new bridge using the...

    I apologize if I'm not doing this right. I'm new to forums but I know that this is a great place for the input I'm looking for so here I am. I fell in love with a beautiful s620exfb the other day at a pawn shop and took her home. I'm pretty new to ibanez guitars and guitars with double locking...

    Hey there. I have a JCS3040 and theres two nuts on the back of the neck by the headstock. What are those for ? I noticed today cause I was about to start adjusting the truss rod to get some of the bow out of my neck. I did not start though because once I seen those nuts I wasn't sure of there...

    Hi guys, The locking nut shelf on my 2008 RG3570 is far too high, to the extent where it makes my guitar noticeably harder to play than it should be. There are no shims underneath the nut, so I can't lower it further. What do you guys think would be the best way to remedy this? Should I take...

    Hey all, I'm looking to replace the nut on my lefty '95 Ibanez S540LTD as the previous owner installed a dodgy aftermarket part. Rich (ibanezrules.com) only has a single original lefty nut for sale (discontinued) which is listed at $75. Sadly my student budget can't afford this. Will a Stewmac...

    Apologies for asking a potentially redundant question however I searched threads and couldn’t find this anywhere so here it is: I have several guitars with Edge Pro trems and want to get a dedicated deep socket for tightening the trem arm holder nut. I thought I remember someone posting that...

    I've got an RG450M that I bought in December 2013. I've been using it on the road a lot, and it's been working great up until a few weeks ago. The high E string (which is a .009) keeps breaking at the locking nut way too frequently than it normally does, and I have no idea why. I examined the...

    I'm loving my new Premium RG920... But one thing that I'm needing to get used to is the width of the fingerboard. Is it just me, or is the string spacing up and down the board I the Premium RG's narrower?

    Hello Folks, I have a RG550 RFR that has been a case queen at home since I've been away on tour for several years. Worryingly, I've arrived home to find a small crack has appeared slightly above the nut retaining allen key screws at the back of the neck. I've taken several pics to try and show...

    Does anyone know where we can get our hands on metal nuts for the RG necks without the locking nuts, and just the plastic like nuts installed? Or perhaps brass? but brass wouldn't match the frets...

    Anyone have a chrome locking nut and trem bar for an RG 4EX 1? Thanks, Steve

    Id like to replace the nut on my Les Paul. Any opinions on Tusq vs Earvana vs ??? Totally foreign subject to me, but the stock one is spent. I need some thing that stays in tune, but I've heard the Earvana helps with intonation.

    Hey guys does anybody know where I could get my hands on the now obsolete old style locking nut for the JS1000 (the black one) its the one that fixes onto the neck with two screws. I tried am guitarspares in the UK and they nicely emailed Ibanez Japan for me but no luck. They do have the...

    I have an S1520 with the original Wizzard neck. One of my favorite guitars, chipped here and there but just a solid-playing guitar. I've had it set up perfectly for me for some time but decided to make a few adjustments. I installed an Edge Pro some time back and there's not a lot of room to...

    Hey. I'm thinking about buying a used RG550. Everything looks great apart from rusty saddle intonation screws and a little crack that goes vertically, along with the neck, near the nut tightening screws. It's about 2 inches long I think. Not really that bad. I know that cracks that goes across...

    Hey Jemsite. I've got this Ibanez RG570 which is really nice. I am the second hand owner of it, and it buzzes at the nut which sounds really annoying. It's almost sitar'ish. I think the nut maybe has been raised by the owner of the gutiar before, since there's a weird metal plate underneath it...

    I just grabbed one of these on eBay, and plan to upgrade the pickups, possibly the pots and wiring and the nut to give me the best possible sound I can get from the guitar. Does anybody know the type of nut I should be looking at, i.e. dimensions? And anyone decent in the UK to buy from?
