New to the site. Just came across a vintage Ibanez RG550. The serial number checks out as an '88 or an '89. The bridge pickup is stated as non-original, so no problem there.
A couple issues
A) Look at the images of this neck. It's smooth and no issues to the finish, but this...
I currently have three guitars (all Ibbys) that I really enjoy playing, but I constantly find myself wanting to play something in a tuning that none of them are set up for. Although I'm comfortable retuning, it takes up time that I would otherwise spend playing and often means changing string...
I've found a 1999 MIJ Rg450AH at a very nice price. (300€. In comparison, a brand new RG550 costs 930€ here in Denmark).
From the serial, I know it's made at the fujigen factory. Is it safe to assume it therefore has the same build quality and quality control as the more expensive guitars from...
Hello, I'm not sure if this is the right location for this if not feel free to move it, anyway... I am wanting to move away from Ibanez models with full floating trems. I just can't deal with the stress of changing strings and setting up the bridge any more. I've been playing with "floating"...
I'm looking for the pink pickups and knobs to the limited edition RG1. I suppose I could very well just buy pink DiMarzios or Duncans but the knobs would be a bit harder to find unless I get aftermarkets from eBay. Anyone have any laying around from RG1 mods?
I'm showing the progress of the refinish of an Ibanez RG and keep the maple top, this will be in different parts:
Part 1: Remove the finish
Part 2: Mending and hiding the dents
Part 2.5: Hiding revisited
Part 3: Applying a dye
Part 4: Prep for finishing
Part 5: Waxing and pollishing
I have a 24 fret, square heel, maple fingerboard EX-series neck that I believe came off a 1993 EX-270.
Question: Which model bodies is this neck compatible with.
I have an old 87 or 88 rg body and it I dont think it fits really, but then again, I dont really know what Im doing...
Hey Left players,
I know Ibanez has pretty limited range of left handed guitars.
Was wondering what other lefty's wanting a really nice Ibby do to get one.
Custom order? Build your own?
Any good lefty shops I should look into?
I'm very interested in a RG series Fixed Bridge or Hard Tail...
Hey guys, looking to buy my first ibanez but i dont want to be ripped off, im looking for an rg550 but i havent played any of the other ibanez series
Anyway to my question is this ibanez worth the money?
2001 Ibanez RG570 Grey Nickel. Made in Japan. Minimal fret wear. It has the Original Edge tremolo and it has been set up spectacularly. The action is super low and it plays incredibly smooth. V7/S1/V8 pickups sound really good. You can get a surprisingly good strat sound from the 2&4 positions...
Black 1987 RG570 HSH for sale. In very good shape for it's age, really nice neck. I have more guitars than I need, downsizing my collection a bit. Asking $350/best offer. I also have a 87-89 760 (HSS) in Jewel Blue with what appears to be a reverse blue burst finish (original), with sharks...
I recently bought an Ibanez RG320 FM and it is a fantastic playing guitar. The edge 3 actually goes out of tune a lot. thought it was fixed, but wasn't, also the last two strings(Low E and A) go out of tune the most ast they can be tuned from the normal tuners. the problem is that I can...
Hey, so I did a very quick search on this and couldn't find anything. I was just wondering if the 2011 serial numbers are different to the earlier serial numbers.. I have a model that was made in either 2011 or 2012 and it seems to be longer i think than what I've seen on the internet. The...
I just acquired a new RG and wow, its the most excellent guitar that I have so far!!!
I can't post a pic yet, it has 2 humbuckers, a fender strat style bridge, and binding on the body and on the neck
I bought it used, but wowow it's really one of the best I have now.
I hope the...
hi all . I have a ibanez RG 560 L , and I am wondering if any floyd rose tremolos will fit the cavity and intonate well. The body is from between 87 - 89 I believe, and has the square heel tilt neck joint. Thanks for the feedback .
This is a serious question. I have a mid 90's I believe, RG 3500DX. The pups are super hot and a little too hot for what I play. I love the guitar. The look, the action, the neck and overall playability.
Not thrilled with the pups. One day I would like to get another Les Paul to replace the one...
