  1. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    A friend dropped off an RGA121 for me to refret and do some general fixing. The pickup switch is really mangled, loose, and crackly so I'm thinking it needs to be replaced. However I have read in the past that Ibanez 5-way switches are not the standard kind, which is how they achieve this...

    So a dumb guitar shop in my hometown has 2 of these in stock right now. I'm saying dumb cause apparently they've only recently realized that they have these sitting in their storage since '08 maybe. They're asking for roughly 1k each. For the same money, albeit from a different store, I could...

    This is an earlier RGA121VLF in pretty good condition. Guitar has been used with a touring band, and shows some buckle rash. Other than that, its in pretty good shape. EMG 81/85 pickups were installed, and it comes with the original ibanez prestige hardshell case. If I were to sell it outright I...

    I recently went to swap out the stock V8 bridge pickup in an RGA121 with a CrunchLab, and noticed that the Crunchlab is much taller than the V8. Screwed all the way down, with no foam underneath, the poles sit about 2.5mm below the low E string when held down on the last fret. DiMarzio's specs...

    hey guys, first post, I recently bought an RGA121 used at guitar center. I wanted to put some heavier strings on it for Drop C tuning (11-54) and it seems like the bridge can't handle the lowest string. The winding on the ball end of the string is too thick too fit... (i've tried a couple of...

    I have been wanting another hardtail Ibanez for a while but was having real trouble finding something that I liked. I then got a great deal on a used, but absolutely mint, RGA121H in dark ruby. Its not the finish I wanted, I would have liked the Violin or natural finish, but never mind, they...

    Selling my 100% stock RGA121 with Team JCraft OHSC. It is the Natural finish, and both the top and the Mahogany back have beautiful grain patterns. The Wizard Prestige neck is perfectly straight, and the polished frets show no visble wear. The hardwear is cosmo and the humbuckers are Ibanez...

    Hi I was wondering if anyone knows of anyone who has tried this, I am semi tempted as I swapped my rg550 for my rga121 recently...and it is a perfect guitar for me although the super wizard on my 550 was just slightly more comfortable so if the neck fits it might be something I am interested in...
