    Hi, I just bought an old green RGT42 off craigslist. It has a great action and fast neck, but the pickups and tremolo leave much to be desired. I am going to try and replace the Lo TRS II trem with some type of original Floyd, but am unsure of what will fit easiest in my guitar with minimal...
  2. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    First, i'd like to say I am pretty new to moding guitars, and am just looking for a few pointers. Any help will be greatly appreciated! I'm about to gut my RGT42. (before i get any flak for owning an RGT42, do know that I am also re-routing and installing a replacement bridge) What...

    Hi Guys, Anybody know the size of the nut for an RGT42dx? And where i could get one for a resonable price? Its been sitting in an attic for 2 years and the threads in the nut are rounded from the guy who owned it before, so it cant lock properly.

    Looking for either one of these, leaning towards the RGT42DXFM model. Condition should be decent, and it doesn't matter if it comes with case or not, though that would be ideal.

    Looking at picking up one of these soon. I have an endorsement and can get it for a little cheaper than on the street. The other guitarist in my band uses an older RGT42 with the dot inlay, and that thing plays great! I really like the neck on it. Hoping these are similar. My usual guitars are...

  7. Pickups & wiring
    Last year, due to a slight auction site error, I bought two RGT42s in the same week : http://www.jemsite.com/forums/f18/ngd-a-brace-of-rgt42s-94627.html The grey one was just sitting in a rack and it wasn't getting used, so it volunteered itself for my next project. First off, I don't hate...

    A schoolboy error on the Bay netted me not one but two RGT42s by mistake. Oops - never assume you're not going to win an item just because you're only £1 in the lead with a week to go. :) One is a 2004 RGT42BP (according to the 2004 catalogue) and is in amazingly good condition for a 5...
  9. Pickups & wiring
    Hi Jemsite members. I'm here again posting my strange every day problems. I recently got an Air Norton and Steve's Special for my '07 RGT42 that originally came with INF 1 and 2. after 4 hours of intensive search I did not find the color code translation between them, nor found any prestige...

    Help me please! I Just got myself an Ibanez RGT42DXFM and I love it! but as usual it came with light strings and I prefer heavy strings. So I buy myself a set of Ernie Ball Power Slinkys (11s) and get to work restringing my guitar But I can not seem to get the trem back to 0 point! the trem in...

    I am selling my Ibanez since I dont use locking trems anymore and dont have space to keep her around. Absolutely fantastic guitar in perfect condition except for minor signs of use...mainly fading of the gray hardware where your palm and pinky would rest. Comes with Ibanez hardshell form fitted...

    I currently own a couple guitars and my favorite is a RGT42 in a gunmetal finish... theres one problem though... it has an lo-trs licensed floyd rose trem... it sucks. it goes out of tune, and thats half the reason why i bought this guitar... to have a floating bridge... anyway i want to...

    im about to replace the $h1t infinity pickups in my RGT42 with two duncans. Ive run into a snag though, i cant find any wiring diagrams for the RGT42. I need to know if it does coil tapping? It has two humbuckers, but a 5 way switch. this would lead me to believe it does coil tapping. I dont...

    I was going to sell my ibanez rgt42 as i dont really use it anymore, but cant get anything remotely resembling a decent price for it, so instead im keeping it and upgrading it. The neck is class, the new schaller floyd rose kicks the ass of the old Low TRS II bridge , but its still lacking in...
  16. Pickups & wiring
    Let me just start off by saying I'm an idiot. I recently uninstalled some old infinity pickups as well as a crackly volume pot from my RGT42. I bought some new Breed Pickups as well as a new volume pot thinking that it'd be no problem to do myself. Unfortunately, I'm having a little trouble...
  17. Pickups & wiring
    So I'm kinda thinking of getting a new pickup for my bridge I'll give you a little history first. My previous guitar was a JEM 555 with EVO's in the bridge and neck. Although I had been playing guitar for quite a while I had little experience with tone. I joined a band the day I bought the...

    Hey, I just became a member yesterday cuz I need some advice. I recently purchased an RGT220A, and I freakin' love it. My other Ibanez is an RGT42, which is a good backup guitar now. Basically, I want to know if I can make my RGT42 as good as my new guitar. The only things that (as far as I...
