    Hello everyone one, I want some help to set my guitar just right, And please do not tell me to take my guitar to a tech because there's no guitar techs where I live, not even in a 3000 km radius. So the thing is that I recently felt that my Lefty Ibanez Prestige RG655 plays a little bit...

    Looking for an RG. Must be Red, Purple or Blue with matching headstock, rosewood fingerboard and dots. Not too familiar with RG's, but I believe what I'm after is some sort of 450/550/655. UK/EU ideally. Thanks!

    I have noticed on the used market the RG655s drop like a stone for $800, but the RG2550z sometimes go for higher or the same price being used. This kinda tells me that one guitar is better. Why is that? Is one actually better? Why does the new RG prestige's value drop so much on used market? I...

    I bought a RG655 brand new less then a few months ago as I was getting back into playing after having to quite because of breaking my arm, sadly I can't play for very long before pain is too much to bare so breaks my heart to do this but its now up for sale. But this is the good bit for whoever...

    Ok so not having a great month, My order for a Jem777 30th fell through and the guitar I bought to tie me over (as I only just returned to playing) RG655 new is a pile of crap, neck cracking, paint finish just terrible and tbh the pickups sound plain to me through the JVM410HJS / 1960b :-( so...

    Hi everyone! I have an RG655 Prestige, the blue one with rosewood fretboard. (I can't post a link yet! But you know where to find it on Ibanez's site) And if you look at its neck dimensions, it's 17mm at the first fret and 19mm at the twelfth (430mm radius). This has proved just to be a bit...

    Thought I'd pick up a new RG655-GK, arrived yesterday straight from the importers. Check out the string alignment, not impressed! How does stuff like this pass QC? Serial: 0002F1600156

    Hey guys. Rich if you're around I'd appreciate your input. So I've read many guides on adjusting truss rods including Rich's and watched techs do it many times. I've heard the "Watch the 7th fret" "No watch the 9th" "No its somewhere inbetween" "Fret at the first and last fret" "No, fret at the...

    Hello. I recently got hold of a RG655 (in FSO), new, 2015 production. I also have a RG950 (indo made premium). As i have read on different places the frets get a "prestige treatment", so i understand rounded (as on my premium). However the fret finishing is at best smoothed edges, no...

    I've been having trouble achieving stability with my "new" RG655. I bought it last month and it was on display for several months in the shop. I tried setting it up and now it behaves strangely. When I bend a string it falls out of tune dramatically, but if I do a dive-bomb with the trem...

    Hi all, I'm new to this site, but have been a fan of Ibanez guitars for decades. I've never owned a guitar of my own, that is until now. I got myself an RG655 in Firestorm Orange, and I love it. I did have a concern regarding the case however. The guitar seems to rest slightly on the high E...
  19. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    I'm still wanting to own a JEM but was frustrated when no new models came out at NAMM. After playing a bunch of them in various music stores the past few months I really like playability and EVO's of the 7VWH but not thrilled with the white color. (Love the new BFP premium color but hate the...

    Their site says it fits Stratocasters, but I've been told the strat cavity is larger than that of an RG.
