    Hi! I'm new to the forums. Hopefully I'm excused if it has been asked before, but I searched to find a topic about similar problem but couldn't find it. Have a 2002 RG570 with an original Edge tremolo. Ernie Ball heavy bottom set gauge 10-52, tuned to D standard. Followed Ibanezrules' tech...

    Neck Relief : Difference between Low B and high E : nominal limits? Hello, I noticed something related to relief with my UV70p, I get smaller values in high E than low B (1st and 7th strings). E.g. When the Low B is at 0.05mm (measured as per ibanezrules site instructions, fretted both 1st and...

    I have my JEM7VL-WH neck set up by RICH for tuning in D (DGCFAD) with D'addariostrings EXL 110 (010-046). I will be doing a couple of concerts where the guitars will be tuned in standard E and I wonder if it's possible to use other size of strings that gives the neck about the same tension as I...

    May seem like an odd question coming from somebody who takes a lot of pride doing my own setups. But im just wandering, with perfectly level frets and relief, action, intonation etc all set.

    Let's say you have a guitar with fret buzz on the 2nd-5th frets, primarily on the low E and A strings. You have also used a straight edge and verified the neck is mostly straight. Is it recommended to add some relief to the neck to try and resolve the buzz on the 2-5th frets? Or should you...

EDIT: i get buzzing pretty much all the way up the low E to the 12th fret, to a lesser degree on the A...

    Hi all, Just had my JEM77FP Refreted. It's an '89 model and it's had a hard life. A very reputable guy and I trust his work and advise (mostly) I need to run something by you all. The neck and frets now are in the ballpark of what it would have been when it was new. I have low-ish action set...
