    So I don't tend to post my NGDs very often, but I've been wanting one of these since drooling over them in magazines in 1986. This has a few dings and scratches, its missing the truss rod cover, has the wrong pads on the locking nut, but it is a MACHINE. Also apparently a rare version that...

    Opps!!! Forgot to post a proline family shot in my NGD post... **I know there are other high end prolines like the 1990, 2770 etc. but those are nearly impossible to find and I have only seen the factory pics on the old Ibanez Registry*** Here they are from top left to bottom right: P2660PL...

    Finally got my last needed proline to complete my "high end" proline collection. I needed a pl2550 to finish the collection out. It's beat up, but I think the guitar hadn't been played much as the fret life is VERY good compared to the condition of the body. Low production #...200. Has a...

    I'm looking for a PR1550 neck to complete a project. This is the Proline with the maple fingerboard, which I believe was only produced/sold in 1985. I've seen a few of these necks sold as parts, so I know they're around. However, if I can't find one, I may consider buying the whole guitar...

    Hi all. Thanks for your answers to some of my questions in the past. I had a proline floyd rose that you could buy from the shelf at the evil guitar center. Then I noticed they made stands and other stuff, and can't find any info on the trem. I had it sitting in storage and needed a temp bridge...

    Hello - I did a search for the 1440's here this morning, and scoured the webz yesterday searching for these guitars. I bought one yesterday for $200 with a hard case (not the original case but hey). First off, it has an "E" beginning the serial number, which a decoder says is the Terada (I...

    Hi guys, I've had this account for a while, but I am finally starting to play. I have a couple questions hopefully someone can help with. The tremolo knife edges on my guitar seem to be a little worn. I have read that they can be filed and fixed. However, I have also read that you should just...

    Duncan HSS setup - thoughts & review (clips added) Well, there are so many people using DiMarzio in Ibanez guitars that to do otherwise is almost sacrilege, but whatever :D. Some people might find this helpful if they're looking for new pups in their HSS guitar and want something versatile...

    I've decided to start listing some guitars and parts that I've been trying to sell on the side for awhile. Starting out I'm selling my silver 1986 PL1770 ProLine. This was a bit of a reclamation project for me. When I got it the hardware was corroded and most of the white gold plating was...
  17. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    So, I've had this guitar for a while now and am very happy with it :D - smooth player, plenty of timbre options with the switching. The original scratchplate was broken around the tone pot so it had to go; also pretty 'meh' aesthetically, so in keeping with the 80s origins, some kitsch was due...

    You cannot go on playing a MIK RG for the rest of your life, particularly an uninspiring example, so it was high time to invest in a new superstrat. At first I thought about old MIJ RGs, but then I thought it would be better to get something different. I started looking at '86 Roadstars first...
