    Hello everyone, I've had my 2001 RG570 for a long time now and I've always had a bit of an issue with noise. The original V7 and V8 pickups have been replaced with a pair of DiMarzio The Breed pickups by the previous owner and I'm happy with how they sound. The volume pot has been wonky for...

    Here's one you don't encounter very often. A vintage 1991 RG550 in JEWEL BLUE. Not even sure if I've ever seen an Ibanez catalog listing it as a color option, but maybe it's out there. My guess is that this model/color combo was mainly sold in greater Asia. Nevertheless, it's in superb...

    I bought an rg570 bodywith the bushings still in the guitar. Will the gotoh ge1996t stud fit in the already installed bushing or do I need to remove the bushing and install the gotoh one’s instead? Cheers

    Hello All, I just bought a 1989 RG570, but the trem is garbage. It's not the original trem, the old owner replaced it (what did they come with originally?) Thus, I need to replace it completely. What would you recommend? Thanks in advance!

    Anyone here own one or have seen one in person? This would be my dream (non-JEM) Ibanez as I prefer the pickguard-less look to an RG550 DY, but besides the picture on the Ibanez wiki, I can find nothing else online proving they exist... https://ibanez.fandom.com/wiki/RG570_(1989%E2%80%931992)...

    I've retired from playing and selling off most of my stuff. The one I'm struggling the most with is my orange maple sunburst 1990 RG770. I bought this new in 1991. That said, does anyone have a rough estimate of what I should be asking in the "For Sale" thread? I did change the bridge and neck...

    So, I finally bought an Ibanez today. First one! Got the bug a couple of years ago, and I watch everything local like a hawk. Have missed a couple of nice axes, but that's perhaps for the best. This week I noticed a used Genesis RG570 had turned up at one of the Guitar Centers in Denver. Was...

    Who makes the best JEM style aftermarket/replacement bodies? I see several options on eBay but I feel like it could be a crap shoot. I've got a 1999 Wizard neck mated to a 2000 RG570 body. I was thinking about either swapping the neck over to a custom built JEM body or doing something else...

    OK, so I have come to the conclusion, after getting my JC it might be best to sell. SO...I'm offering my 2002 RG570 GN WITH Case for $550. For now I will only do local pickup. This means if you are in the Knoxville, TN area I can meet. The guitar is 99.98% perfect with case. There is one small...

    I'm thinking of changing out the V7/V8 in the 570 for Dimarzio Super D and Liquifire. I have read that the liquifire is similar to the Air Norton. I have that in a S model so if it is similar I might consider something else. Any thoughts on this particular setup? I haven't decided on the middle...

    Hi! Simple question; I'm interested in finding a notorious instrument like the RG570 or RG770 but I'd like to know if there's a similar model with a HH pickup configuration. What would you recommend? Thank you!

    Hey guys, I'm getting my pups changed to direct mount and I want to add a pick guard to to my PAW Jem build. I narrowed it down to the classic black/white/black pick guard and a material Perle calls "Midnight Glitter," <-- which kind of fits the theme of this one. Here are 2 very rough...

    Hi everyone, I'm in the process of buying a new guitar (well a used one actually), and I found two pretty nice offers which I can't chose between : 1991 MIJ RG570FM -> 320€ 2009 MIJ RG1570 -> 375€ They are both in very good condition and I have a hard time chosing between the two. These days...

    Hi - I have a RG570 that has been heavily converted to a H-S configuration. I didn't put any pickup in the Single (neck) cavity just a Humbucker wired to a single Push-Pull Volume Pot (no tone and no switch) that splits the humbucker. Now, I do want to add the single pickup however I do not...

    24 fret RG guitars have a unique neck pickup sound due primarily to a few factors... 1) The neck humbucker is positioned a little closer to the bridge compared to most 22-fret guitars, to make room for the 2 extra frets. The small change in location imparts a slightly brighter tone with a bit...
