  1. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    For all the Ibanez guru's..... Did Ibanez make a RoadStar, Radius, or JS model with a Mahogany body, Maple/Rosewood or Maple/Ebony Neck, AND an Edge Tremolo?
  2. Pickups & wiring
    Hi, Need help, I am trying to put a standard 500k pot instead of using a push button like what is on there. There are 3 wires, red, white and bare. I measure about 8k ohms if I measure red to bare. Only about 4k ohms white to bare and if I connect white and red I get about 2k. I guess I...

    Hi all, It was recommended to me to post this on this site to maybe get some more info. I recently bought a Roadstar II that by the serial # was made in March of 1986. I pulled the neck while doing the set up on it and found what appears to be the model written on both the neck and the pocket -...

    I recently acquired an Ibanez Roadstar II, RS 530. It has Ibanez branded gold tuning machines. All the others I've looked at have black ones. Is this a special model? The screws for the nut lock and the strap buttons are also gold. Any info would rule, thanks.

    Are the necks the same on the old Roadstar and Roadstar II guitars? I've only played Roadstar II's and might have an opportunity to pick up a slightly older Roadstar, like '84... Just don't know if the necks are the same profile, etc... Thanks for any info!

    Hi there, I recently bought a 1984 RS440 that needed some TLC. Most of it was in good shape, but it came with a Pro Rock'r bridge with some missing t-nuts, one missing saddle, and a cracked trem plate. I was going to try and restore it to original, but I've gone a different route and am now...

  13. Pickups & wiring
    Hey all, I have a question I haven't been able to find the answer to. I have a bridge pickup from an '85 Roadstar II (RS110 model). Just so happens that model isn't in the 1985 Ibanez catalog...but according to this chart, it should be a Super 70...

    Title pretty much says it all. I got a new old '85 RS440 for Christmas, it's in fairly good shape and mostly original. I'm seriously contemplating putting it into service as a gigging axe, if I can get it stabilized. I know. This thread is worthless without pics. The good: no real rust...

    Hey guys, this guitar is up at my dad's house right now. This is an older picture of it. It has 2 humbuckers, they are coverless, the hardware is all in black, and one volume, one tone knob, if I remember correctly, and the input is on the top, not coming out the side. The guitar has a white...

    Hello all. I was recently in a band with a fellow that had a Roadstar II bass and guitar. He was looking to unload the guitar, and when I told him I really loved old 70s and early 80s Ibanezes, I think he was slightly surprised, but since he's a bass player decided I should have it. I was very...

    I am planning to buy an Ibanez RG421 MOL with INF3&4 pickups and a Fender Mustang I 20W. Would it sound decent for a beginner? I want to play metal and I love the FUSE software because it allows me to download presets for so many bands and sub genres of metal. Is there anything else you would...

    Not sure if anyone would know this... but my first guitar project from 20+ years ago failed due to bridge mounting issues after filling the trem cavity. (I was 19 or 20 and had no idea what I was doing) I'd love to get the guiatr back together and working since the neck was so awesome... and...

    Hi All, I was hoping an Ibanez expert could help me out. I LOVE the neck on my Roadstar II RG140 and would like to build or buy a guitar that has the same neck dimensions and feel. Maybe you'd know: Width at nut fingerboard radiuses (I guess a compound radius?) and fret wire size Shape? I'm...

    I would very much like to know three things: Model number? Where to get a pickguard? Basswood or alder, or ...? Pictures (sorry can't inline pictures before I get 10 posts, will edit later): wavehh.dyndns.org/tmp/blackroadstar-id/index5.html As you can see there is a non-original trem route...
