    Hello all! First post here as I just got an RG1570 off craigslist about a month ago. I bought it with the intentions to learn how to work on guitars more. Do upgrades , change out parts, repaint etc. I was wondering what advice you all might have? Right now my plans are to change out the...

    So I decided to put together a custom build with an old S-series body I grabbed off the bay for cheap. I am putting it together with my luthier Kip Elder at starr guitars. http://www.starrguitars.com/ I am slowly getting the pieces together and picking paints and letting them do fun work of...

    I'd be interested to hear what you all think of this Jem that I got my hands on. I bought a Jem of my girlfriends neighbour - it was nasty. Started fixing it up, found out that the neck was warped beyond repair. Best thing that could have happened to it! I replaced the tremolo and tuners, and...

    Bought this a few days ago, didn't know what it was, seller believed it was a RG370DX. After 10 mins of internet searching, I figured out that it is a Ibanez RG470 from 1992, Has a Edge Tremolo, Gotoh Tuners, Made in Fujigen plant. Great guitar all in all, but the finish was absolutely...

    Hi, I just bought a guitar that has been repainted. The seller told me he thinks the place that did the repaint for him sprayed on top of the original color as opposed to sanding it down to bare wood for the repaint. I don't have the guitar in hand yet to take a look, but he told me if i take...

    I have a 08 RG that has a "Biker Black" finish over top a "blue sparkle" finish. My guess is Ibanez messed up the blue sparkle and put the black over it. ANYHOW... I want to take all the finish off, stain it, and oil it for a more natural look. What's the best way to remove the paint? And...

    I was wondering if anyone has repainted or refinished a Jem7DBK from the black to another color while leaving the textured appearance? Any experience, thoughts, or suggestions would be appreciated. (I did a search and didn't come up with anything. I seem to remember someone sanding one down...

    Hello, I have an '89 Ibanez RG760 that has a few battle dings in the finish, and I'm thinking of getting the guitar repainted. Does anyone here have any recommendations for someone that you used to refinish any of your axes, that you feel did A+ work? Not looking for any outlandish paintjobs or...

    1. Take this 2550E 2. Send it to Rick at Guitar Guru. 3. Paint that sumbitch seafoam green. 4. Have said guitar returned to me and much rejoicing will be had by...well, just me. I decided after much pondering to leave the Destroyer be. The 2550E, on the other hand, will look great in...

    Before.... Now.... After....? It should be back together in a week or so. I suspect 2, and hopefully there won't be any gigs :S. Anyways, it's going to be red, with some custom wiring. This will be its 4th color. It was black, then natural, then natural with bad fire-burned inlay crap...

    So a while back I bought this used MIM Telecaster. It was an awful blue/purple color, solid, no sparkle or metal flakes or anything, just flat (with the clear coat). I decided to sand it off and stain it. Let me just say to those thinking of doing this sort of thing, it is a royal pain in...
