    RGR465M original switching help Hi all! Long time I haven't posted anything here... I just got me a great RGR465M CA. On it's way here. I can't find the original switching system anywhere! Is it the "classical" HH Ibanez switching like this one? It might be the same as in the RG3XXV, for...

    Selling my RG3XXV, in fantastic shape... no nicks, dents, or scratches. Just some very very light pick swirls below the strings. Plays great and sounds awesome with the DiMarzio Activator bridge and Air Norton S neck. Comes with original matching locking strap in OHSC w/keys. Would like to keep...

    A new guitar arrived at my doorstep today. An RG3XXV that is in like new condition, kind of a spur of the moment thing. I barely had time to unbox it tonight and check it out. I have to learn about the trem and how to tell when it's level... and this is my first guitar with a maple fretboard...

    Since I'm a long time floyd rose user, I dont like the Edge Zero II on my recently acquired RG3XXV. It feels bit weird in my hands so I decided to replace it with a gotoh floyd rose. You guys have any idea what floyd rose model can retro fit in RG3XXV trem cavity? I don't really want to do any...

    hey i ran into some problems with my rg3 well for one the screw hole (lol) is all stripped out for the saddle block on the b string and well the treble strings tend to make a very high ringing sound when i pluck the g string and its not fret buzz. its like a harmonic almost. ive done some...

    I'm not really sure how this thread is going to progress but I can say that it should be somewhat interesting. My original thoughts were that, since I constantly give my advice or opinions, I should show people that I actually follow my own words too. There have been a few recent threads...

    New Shreddy Tune (VID) Featuring a Couple Differnt Ibanez Howdy brothers, just sharing a new little jam I finished up featuring mostly a couple different Ibanez models (RG3XXV and an RG3120, I also have a US Custom RG20 but I didn't use it on this track). It's a simple tune and the solo is...

    Well I own a rg3xxv and decided to add an x2n to the bridge position and now the air norton s on the neck position sounds weak but in the dimarzio page it said that the chopper is a good combo for it so now I'm deciding to put the chopper on the neck and leave the x2n bridge will that combo work...

    Hey fellow guitarists! Just for fun! .. I am considering an Ibanez RG3XXV. I was wondering what colour you guys would prefer, and why? :-) - I think the RG565 looks killer, but it's kinda hard to get, so I'm sticking with the RG3XXV which is fine, even though it's Indonesian made. So what...

    Just sayin....these are serious bang for buck guitars! Don't honestly care much about where it was built as I have several Ibanez (USA Custom, Prestige, etc) and I luv 'em all, and this one holds its own in build quality and tone with the much pricier lines. I'm tracking an original tune right...

    Hey guys. If you were going to put together a guitar like the RG3XXV 25th Anniversary, but want to do so yourself, where would you buy the body and neck? Who does so with enough quality and yet not too expenisve? I just need the neck and body and I'll install the hardware and pickups.. I'll be...

    Hi All, This post is sort of an intro, too. I'm a longtime player who had Ibanezs back in the 80's. Lately, I've been playing parts guitars. I saved up some money to get a new guitar. I did some research online, and decided I was going to get a Blackberry S420. It looked nice for...

    Does anyone know if the rg3xxv arrives already set up or do i have to configure it myself? I dont want to mess up the bridge or anything.

    I've decided not to hang onto my new blue RGxxv. It turns out I need the cash more than the guitar. I like pickups on this ( Dimarzio Air Norton S and DiMarzio D-Activator ) quite a bit better than my old RG 565, but not enough to justify keeping both guitars, so this one is gonna go... I got a...

    Moved over from another thread - here's some shots of my new RG3xxv. Fret ends are decent: Nut is way high - the intonation suffers in the first few frets. This should be an easy fix at the factory level. I like the trap door in the truss rod cover. Neck joint is nice and tight on...

    All the recent talk about these things had compelled me to grab one, so that being said, here's a crappy cell phone pic ;): Most of the QC issues with these discussed elsewhere on the board are present on this guitar, to some extent. They're all minor, and most can be easily corrected (and most...

    Musicians Friend keeps blocking the link, so you'll just have to go to the site and look for this... Ibanez RG3XXV 25th Anniversary Electric Guitar Comes in red and blue. I think I need both.
