  1. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    Hey guys and gals, not ranting just asking purely out of curiosity: I have purchased over the years 5 high end Ibanez guitars, here is a rundown of the problems had so far: Jem 7VWH: Got unlucky enough to purchase my first Jem during the production year(s) where you got horrid overtones...
  2. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    This may have been discussed somewhere here, but I have a question. Anyone have an opinion on repairs vs value? Let's say small dings. Would you do a spot in, of something the size of a dime? Meaning, filling, airbrushing color, then 2K clear, wet sand, and polish out? Or would you leave the...

    Hi all, I'm hoping someone here lives kind of close to the Mornington Peninsula, Victoria, I'm trying to find a beat up old ibanez RG series (between $50aud and $100). It can be missing just about everything electronically, I only need the neck and body, check your Cupboards and Sheds. Someone...
  4. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    So, those of you who saw the "found this neck on fleabay" thread saw what some genius did to a poor Wizard neck I picked up. I was able to rescue the neck and luckily got hold of the body too! It's a 450DX WH, '97 and it's in need of some serious love. I'm going to reunite these lost babies and...

    Hi, OMG :( OMG :( OMG :( My UV kept going out of tune, so I disassembled the edge trem and then found out what was wrong: The mounting stud is wiggling at the high E side, both the stud itself and the stud insert are wiggly :( Now, I can't see if the inner stud wobbles due to a crack or...

    Hi there Im having a very annoying problem with my 7V and desperately need advice. Ive recently taken my Jem to my local music shop (well trusted in my area) and it re-strung (strings all well stretched in) and a set up adjustment. However, When I depress the tremolo bar, the tone of the...

    I got an acoustic not too long ago, vintage yamaha FG 420 LA and it's got some wear here and there but it's in really good shape besides this red mark on the top when I bought it. it doesn't look like it's a marker or anything by how it isn't flush with the finish. I tried things here and there...
  9. Off-topic / Miscellaneous
    Hi there, I have recently bought a collectable jem and want to clear coat over the Ibanez jem logo using nitro cellulose, but i am concerned that it may react with the paint that ibanez used to screen print it on with. Has anyone attempted this before with the original logos? My reason for...

    My RG 7 string recently started crackling when turning the volume knob, so I bought a replacement pot, and actually upgraded from 500 to 1m. The volume knob actually added alot of clarity and brightness to the guitar which really sounds good. But I noticed on a few occasions, still trying to...

    I've recently took out a load of pedals that I had in storage, quite a few from vintage Ibanez, Boss, Dodd, MXR, etc etc... all were ok except for four late 80's Ibanez "10" series pedals. A DL10 Digital Delay, CP10 Compressor, MS10 Metal Charger & a CS10 Stereo Chorus, all of which are just...

  15. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    So I've been wanting a JEM for as long as I can remember and finally, yesterday, I bought a used 7VWH for 1,050. Cheap, yea, but not necessarily a great buy. The guitar is structurally sound; neck is straight, no cracks except around the output jack, no major dings in the neck. It is still...
