    I made this a while back, before I got the RG520qs... Maybe that RG5EX1 didn't sound that bad after all! Goofing around with an old favorite song and a new video camera.

    What would you buy? Whats the best bang for your buck Ibanez RG you think you could swindle someone out of for $500?? I'm just asking because I got back into playing guitar after a long time... bought a RG5EX1 for $280. Looking bakc now I see I could have gotten a lot better guitar for that $$...
  3. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    The guitar is an RG5EX1... about the best I could afford. Action was pretty high, so I used advice from the Rich Harris "Ibanez Rules" site, as I have always been afraid to touch a truss rod. I tightened up the rod just a bit to achieve .3mm of relief at the 9th fret, retuned, and that helped a...

    I'm a beginner/intermediate guitar player that just got back into it after quite a while off and raising kids. Picked up a guitar last summer and love playing it, but now that I'm getting back into the groove (and having bigtime fun with backing tracks) I just can't seem to get a good...

    Hi, I may have missed a real obvious point, if so, I expect to told really quickly on here !! I have picked up an RG5EX1 body and an RGR320SP neck (GN-2357) as part of a project to build a bespoke RG for myself. (the date of body is unknown but the neck is a 2012 model reverse headstock) I...

    Ok, a few years ago I saw an RG5EX1 on the bay with what looked like a surface decal of a montage of the old Atari 2600 game cartridge covers. I thought this was pretty cool but never saw it again. Anyone know who's guitar this is or where it ended up? Anyone have pics? Where's the best place to...

    I have a really beat up RG5EX1 I bought on sale and intend to refinish/repaint as a project. I'd like to know if there are there any other RG guitars I see as a visual reference with zebra pickups(not stock obviously), grey headstock, matte grey hardware, and no pickguard. I've been thinking...

    Hello, this is my first post. I am on the trail to become a fellow Ibanez owner and hope to be hanging out here more often. I can't find the RG370DXZL anywhere in the US. (which has Edge-Zero II bridge, not the poor Edge III) "Q. Does anyone know where to get one in the USA or if they will be...

    This guitar has been one of my main guitars, I put a lot of work into, but alas, I need money for other things. I put a DiMarzio X2n in the bridge and a Seymour Duncan SH-2 in the neck. I can supply the original pickups if you want. I changed the knobs too, I'l send the original too though I...

    I am wanting to trade my RG5EX1 for an RG350DX in white. Does not matter if it has a maple or rosewood fretboard. Abilene Tx It is in good shape I just prefer the look of the 350DX rather than the 5EX1

    So I picked up a RG5EX1 thinking it would make a decent metal lead guitar. Looks cool but I cant get the action anywhere near what i want and have it playable. Buzzes all over the place. Not sure if I should just return it or have a pro take a look at it. I suspect it would cost too much to have...

    So whats the scoop on RG5EX1? I heard they fixed the Edge III tremolo blades starting with the 2009/11 production, true? I'm thinking about buying it over RG370DX. Any thoughts?

    Is it worth buying a used, lower end RG and upgrading it? Specifically, I'm talking about the RG5EX1. Is the guitar well built enough to be worth upgrading? If I were to do it, I'd put an OFR bridge (at least I think the OFR fits the bridge route), change the pickups, and refinish it in a...

    As the title says, I'm wondering if the RG5EX1 is worth getting. I'm left handed, and Ibanez doesn't have a ton of lefties available. A few years ago (well, maybe around 6), I used to have an RG1570L that I liked. I sold it when I went through a phase of wanting just hardtails, and I kinda...
