    Putting an item back on the market! This neck was going to be for a project. I fitted it, and it is a great neck, but then changed my mind about the project so this is just sitting waiting to be used. I believe it is from a RG2120, but please let me know if you think otherwise. I bought it...

Im about to buy the above... the rga 121 prestige in Mahogony. Just thought i would put it in here to see if anyone has anything to say about them... good...

    My question is: is there a worksmanship, or craftsmanship difference between the rg3120 and the rg2550? They appear to have the same neck, so my guess is the only difference is the flame maple top and mahogany body, am I right? Or do the ibanez workers put in more effort and time into the...

    Hi I'm after a Jem neck for a project that I'm doing on one of my guitars I'm building. They seem very hard to get hold of indeed as they dont seem to wear out. I dont really want to compromise, I want a Jem neck but I am having big trouble sourcing one! I dont really have a preference on...

    I've always wondered this, since some of the Prestige models seem to have this, while others only have a serial on the back. Obviously any RG Prestige is going to be made in the Fuijen factory... But how a lot of lower end models like the RG1570 only have a serial on the headstock while others...

    I don't have the option to post pics so I will do my best to describe it. I don't have the guitar in front of me as I am at work. The guitar is pewter silver with Rosewood fretboard, dot inlays and black headstock. Also has the wizard 1 neck w/strip on the back of the neck. The headstock...

    Hi all, I have kinda rediscovered my ancient RG550 recently. It's an old RFR one from '87 I think. Anyway, I recently played an RG2570 and the neck shape seemed better to me (it was a bit fatter, slightly wider & felt a little V shaped to me). So I'm wondering if there is another model (neck)...

    I'd like to get some opinions on this. I've owned at least 20-25 Ibanez guitars over the years. Mostly RG models but I also had a JEM and a JPM model for a while. Now I realize that Team J Craft is a specialized group of Ibanez's most experienced builders and the VAST majority of their guitars...

    Decisions decisions. I've got the choice between a black '99 RG550 and a silver '05 RG2570, $600 and $500 respectively. I've played both models and don't really have a preference one way or another. Can anyone give me some more info that might sway my decision one way or another? Disregard...

    As we say here in England (I live in Italy now most of the time though, LOL) Versus Which is the more stunning guitar visually? Versus Visable sharkies, swish/tick headstock. Versus Mmmmm sky blue... nice colour! :)

    Another thing I've been considering with Ibanez guitars recently, is that as much as I love the RG shape (both looks and cosmetics) the necks for me are just too damn thin. I thought it could've been just me being picky, but I've spoken to a lot of guys locally who always say things along the...

    hmm, i think i need either a j custom, if i can find one at a good price, or a 3120 next! an rg with mahogany body = a must :) over this time, ive actually come to a few conclusions! lo pro > all even the lor pro arm works better than the edge pro arm, in an edge pro bridge! lotrs = ****e...

    E-bay item: 320187525731 "Mild relic done by me to body and headstock only...I think the headstock looks much better natural, showing off the beautiful woods they use in these Prestige necks." And he's trying to sell it for $700!
