    Hi all new member here. I'm after an RG but don't know if I should go for a 1999 RG520 in blue with original pickups, chips around sides and small crack by locking nut retaining screw which is going for 230USD, or a newer model which would be Indonesian for what I could afford. I'm attracted to...

    This is an RG520QSTB from 2000. It has a mahogany body with a quilted sapele veneer. It's the TB (Transparent Blue) finish. This guitar has seen its fair share of playing and has clear coat scratches to show for it. They're mostly on the back, probably mostly from buckle rash and such. Otherwise...

    I was just at home a bit ago on my lunchbreak and was noodling around on my newly acquired RG520QS (2000 model) and the volume knob looked like it was sitting a tad low (close to paint) so I pulled gently on it to see if it was loose and it clicked into a higher position. I clicked it back &...

    For sale is my Ibanez RG520 QSTB owned from new. I'd say the condition is 8/10, it has a new marks here and there but absolutely nothing major. The hardware is in very good condition. The only downside at the moment is the rear cover for the electronics is missing, but I can buy one and fit...

    Hi Guys, I have a quick question about RG520s. Did all models have mahogany bodies or only the ones with a quilted top? I've been looking everywhere, but I can't seem to find an answer.

    Didn't think I'd be selling this, especially so soon. However, I have 7 Ibanez guitars and this one fell on the chopping block to pay for my car. This guitar is in great shape with just some minor pitting on the trem. Completely unmodified. No dings on the neck or the body. The only weird...

    Heu guys! Can i swap the hardware of an Ibanez RG520 (Tremolo, Arm Nut, Tunners) to a JEM7WH of 2000 without making any modifications ?!? The trem on the RG is an Egde and in the Jem is a Lo-Pro Edge. Cheers
  12. Pickups & wiring
    I'm wiring my 540 Saber like a 520 (I can explain why if anyone cares). Following the Ibanez diagram as closely as I could manage, all the positions work EXCEPT position 3 which should be neck and bridge humbuckers together. Any idea what gives?

    Back Again, After posting my NGD for my JPXI-7, I went and picked this up. Couple of dings on the body (back and side only) but as you can see (or maybe not my cam sucks:() the hardware is in mint condition. Frets look like they had a re-level very recently as they look unused. Someone popped...

    My first RG was a 98 RG520. The neck was my ideal shred neck. The 98 catalog lists it only as "Wizard," but it is definitely different from the Wizard neck I had on my 1990 RG550. I never owned them both at the same time so I couldn't A/B them, but it seemed that the 520 neck, in addition to...
  15. Pickups & wiring
    Any wiring gurus, I could use your help.. Trying to figure out how to wire my RG520 with dual humbuckers so that I have independent volume and tone control for each pickup (Like a Les Paul would have). I would like to try and use concentric pots/stacked knobs, and keep the parallel positions...

    I have a chance to buy a RG520QS for $380 with shipping and tax. it is about a 8.5.10 in terms of condition. No nicks, cracks, chips, scratches (some pick scratches as to be expected) or anything, just some mild fret wear from use. However it does not include a case, so I am wondering if you...

    I've got a few items that are up for sale or trade, the Only trades I'm looking for would be an AANJ Ibanez USA custom - in any graphic except last cigarette - prefer maple and HSH with only volume, tone, and 5 way switching, but would also consider single humbucker configs, or would consider 6...
