    Hi there, I recently bought a 1984 RS440 that needed some TLC. Most of it was in good shape, but it came with a Pro Rock'r bridge with some missing t-nuts, one missing saddle, and a cracked trem plate. I was going to try and restore it to original, but I've gone a different route and am now...

    Hi everyone, I am rebuilding my 1985 pro line 1440 and I need some part (volume knob, parts or a full pro rock'r bridge, the little toggle switches..) I know it can be a pain in the *** to found the pro rock'r parts (or full) Is there a site or someone selling that stuff ? Tanks

    Read a few posts around the interwebs, but I'm also gonna ask you guys: Are there any good shops that offer spare parts for the old Pro Rock'r bridges? I've just inquired with Mr-Ibanez about a few parts (awaiting reply), but if they're not available from him, I'm kind of screwed. Rick likely...

    Title pretty much says it all. I got a new old '85 RS440 for Christmas, it's in fairly good shape and mostly original. I'm seriously contemplating putting it into service as a gigging axe, if I can get it stabilized. I know. This thread is worthless without pics. The good: no real rust...

    I hope someone can advise me on this. I've never been a big fan of tremolos anyway, but I've had my Roadster II's bridge blocked with a piece of wood for years now. I'd actually quite like to sort it out with a proper solution while I am giving things a slight spruce up. I see there are a few...

    I have an 84 RS430, Roadstar II guitar. S/S/S with Pro Rock'r trem. This is a complete guitar including the trem arm. It plays wonderfully, but has some knicks and chips. Will sell as a complete guitar or will part out, but will not part out the trem, it will be sold complete with the...

    Was wondering if anyone had any black pro rock'r trem fine tuners. I need 2. I tried contacting MR Ibanez, but I haven't gotten any response. Thanks!

    So, what has happened to many has finally happened to me - the little grommet (for want of a better term) that holds the intonation and saddle screws on my Roadstar has snapped. And no, I didn't crank the saddle screw down or intonate under string pressure; I was tweaking the string radius...

    What do you do when an 80s MIJ Ibanez turns up on evil bay for a suspiciously low price? You hit 'buy it now'. I thought, heck if it sucks I won't cry about it, and could maybe part it out to make up for the loss, and it's xmas! I paid $150 for this thing 8O. Stock except for the strap buttons...

    Anybody have any tips /diagrams/ etc for installing one of the old 80's Pro Rock'r (?) tremolos? It's the big gold block/ black handle/ preFloyd/PreEdge models. Thanks in advance. Bryan P.S. I had typed out a new member/1st post/ 8 paragraph back-story TWICE only to lose them both to the...

    This thing sounds great! heavy as a mofo and needs a good cleaning and new strings, but it sounds really nice, plays pretty nice with a good low action and no buzzing strings.

    Hi guys, I have a 1985 metallic purple RS440, it has a Pro Rock'r trem that I'd like to replace. I've searched and read a lot of threads but I haven't come across a definitive thread about the best replacement options in terms of swapping in an Edge, Floyd or Kahler (or other good trem) and...

    So, like a lot of other folks out there, I have a busted pro rock'r trem. My friend gave me a beat up roadstar II he found in storage after his downstairs neighbors moved out. It's a cool looking black out, but the stupid trem is fudged. And, after much searching, I realize there ain't no easy...
