    Hi Everyone. I'm new here. I've been here a couple times looking around. I"ve been playing guitar for over 35 year. Mostly as a hobby, but I did play in a couple bands in the 80's and again in 2012 I played loads of Biker parties. It was loads of fun. I own three guitars as of yesterday. I...

    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 &...

    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...

    Hi everyone, I'm looking to replace the pickup rings on my '98-'99 RG520QS. I want metal solid black ones. I understand that 4MR1J212B (Japan made?) are not available anymore, but there's plenty of 4MR1C212B (Indonesian? Chinese?). Does anyone know if these are interchangeable (and if 4MR1C212B...

    So I'm leaning towards picking up this badboy (RG520qs) with EVH Frankenstein pickups and original edge for $400 (might be able to haggle a little). I guess I'm looking for confirmation that this is one of the last RG models made in Japan before the Prestige line came about. At this price it...

    I am having a blast totally disassembling my RG520QS, and the process started with me checking out the pickups to find out what they actually are. The guitar shop I bought the guitar from (at the time I was totally ignorant of all things Ibanez AND DiMarzio) said it had "John Petrucci" pickups...
