    Do the volume and tone pots differ between models? I am looking to change the pick guard on my RG1451, I picked up one off EBay with the tone pots and 5 way switch which came from a RG2550. Both being Prestige models, will they be the same pots or will the RG2550's be better? I don't have it...

    About a week late but took me a while to down size the pictures.. Found this Prestige RG1451 at our local Long & Mcquade sitting on a rack of used guitars and it was pretty cheaply priced.... I sat down to play it an the neck is just sweet to play on, I picked it up 2 days later. The pick-ups...

    Hello, I ordered a set of grover locking machine heads for my 1451 and the screw holes don't match up. This guitar is meant to be a player so I guess the unsightly extra holes wouldn't matter much. Also, they are true black so they don't technically match the cosmo tight end bridge. I'm...

    Just though I would show this a baby. I am having a dilemma as I now have 2 guitars with the Tight-End bridge which I actually love. Problem is, I dont which to get rid of. Gotta help pay for the RFR coming. The RG1451 or the RG921. I actually like the 921 better for playability reasons...

    It's been a good week for useful, cheap guitars here in the household. Picked this up off the bay for 1/2 of what they sold for and it is like new. I am a bit disappointed...all I had to do was wipe it gown with some polish and it was good to go, no cleaning necessary. There is a small ding by...

    Hello fellas :D Since I got my first Ibanez it's about time for my first post! I'm having trouble adjusting the action on my new Ibanez. I took IBANEZ RULES!! as a guidance and there's no chance to get such a low action ([email protected] fret ??? WTF ?!?!). I adjusted the truss rod to have about...

    I'm pretty set on getting an RG1451, a hardtail Prestige. Great value at 550 GBP. I'd really like to get the one in white plaster, but will it turn yellow over time? I hate this look, even though many people seem to love it. I read that the JEM series uses special paint to stop the guitar from...

    Ok, so I had initially decided to get an RG370dx. But when making the call to the supplier he mentioned an RG450. This is a 2009 MIJ. Apparently its also semi limited in numbers. So I was busy placing my order when he said that for an extra R700. I'm assuming that is 100 dollars or so I could...

    I've lost interest in floating bridges, so I'm looking at new fixed bridge guitar. The RG1451 is the closest I've come to finding what I want, specifically: HSH, pickguard, Wizard neck, hard tail. I'm hesitant to pull the trigger on it though. I'm comforted by the fact that it's a Prestige class...

    So, I'm in the market for a new guitar. I currently have: - An ESP LTD MH-400 (mahogany body, quilted maple veneer, natural binding, rosewood fretboard, neckthru maple neck, EMG 81/85, licensed floyd rose...ugh) - A Fender Highway 1 HSS Stratocaster (I'm sure we all know what strats are like)...

    I just got my second prestige model, the rg1451 (my 1st was rg1550m which i sold) and i've been digging it but i've come across a concern. whenever I apply pressure on the neck i hear a "creaking" noise coming from the neck pocket. I decided to unscrew the neck and as the screws were turned it...

    Hey everyone. Just wanted to know if anyone recommends a certain type of PU to replace the ones in my RG. The body is Basswood and im more of a rhythm player than lead. Ive been playing alot of trivium lately and i like that sound. With that being said i would like to avoid active pickups. Any...

    sup, need to get a new toy and it has to be a fixed one. im mostly a non whammy guy, though i own other whammy ibbys (prestige and not). id love those 1451s if they came without pickguards, but up to date the only other choice i can think about is a rgr321ex...the question is, are those good...

    Bearing in mind my first and only guitar is second hand Strat copy from Gear4music which I bought for about £50 off ebay... Am I asking for too much in an upgrade to a £700 Ibanez Prestige model (RG1451)? I definitely won't be disappointed by the quality of an Indonesian model (it'll probably...

    Hello Ibanezers! I just broke a new D string in 2 days...that never happens to me. Has anyone had a problem with string breakage on the Tight End bridge where the string rubs against the metal hole as it goes into the body? TheRG1451 is still new to me, so maybe it was a dud string, hmmmm...

    Howdy smarter and more technical folks than me! I'm thinking of replacing the neck pickup in my RG1451 (new hardtail) probably for a Breed Neck DP165 or maybe an Air Norton DP193 so......... should I go F-Spaced or regular? I'm not convinced that the string spacing is quite as wide as on a...
