The pedal works fine on my low D-G-C-F....but when I try to tune the A-d strings the rotating tuner graphic does not even appear. It's just kinda locked in place. The same thing happens when I go lower...

    Hey Ibanez experts, I was wondering if someone could help me with a problem. So i have this RG550 wit the 1991 standard RG550 floyd rose action.

    What do you reckon are things one should check in-store before getting a guitar, either to spot problems or to choose a specific specimen out of the available stock? What more in-depth checks to do back home to see if it needs to be returned? I don't mean setup, but damage, imperfections, etc.

After a month the trem arm came in...

    Hi, I recently bought an Ibanez Xiphos XPT700 in white and it seems as if the high E string is much too close to the edge of the neck... The locking nut and bridge don't seem to be centered with the neck. I'm wondering if this is normal, or if I should send it back and get a new one? I can't...
