    Im thinking of buying the RG2570EXCPK, and i was wondering if i am paying extra for the sharkfin inlays and the CH finish? Or should i go with the RG1550SA, its a prestige neck, is it any chance that it will break and will i have to be super careful all the time? Can i put in 0.10 strings etc...

    Hello people! This is a really awesome forum.. OK heres my first post... I got this Fender Standard American Stratocaster, and I want to get a 7 string Ibanez, because it not sufficient for the music I make (from nu-metal stuff, to Satriani -crystal planet songs mostly- and to classical music...

    Well I have a optunity to get 1999 rg 550 in mint condition, for about 385 USD. Its not exatcly old like the ones made in the 80s, and early 90s. I want to know if I'm getting a good deal or what. Also is it true that older models made in the 80s have better quality? Thanks :lol:

    To my amazement I managed to find an '04 7vwh with an ebony neck, thats right '04. You see in the very beginning of the year Ibanez was making '04 bodies but they still had a few '03 necks around. So they used up all the ebony '03 necks before making the spec change to rosewood. I paid $1604 for...

    Well, after an early rumor of the change and much confusion due to the ibanez.com website specs on the VWH I can now confirm, the 04' VWH now has a ROSEWOOD fretboard. The one shown at NAMM was ebony so I never gave it a second though afterwards. It is a nice dark select rosewood but it is...

    Is there any way to get a sparkle blue JEM with an ebony fingerboard (and still have the blue vines) or should I just forget about this notion? Anyone know WHY white JEMs have the ebony and the blue ones have rosewood? Thanks in advance.
  9. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    yeah, its a bit of a pain. The baby E strings constantly gets caught on the edges of the fret somewhere between the 21'st and 24 fret. For instance, if I depress the tremolo, sometimes the baby string will go off the board slightly, and stay caught on the edge of the fret. Anyone have any...

    I think I'm about ready to have Jeremy at LGM Guitars change out the blue plastic inlays from my SBL, but I'm not sure what I want. So, I'm looking to you folks for suggestions. I want something that you'll be able to see from more than a few feet away. The inlays are great work, and I want...

    My friend that works in a local music store here got a letter from Ibanez saying that the DBK will not be in the Jem line-up next year, but say's it will have a new one to take it's place.....What it will be it did not say....

    I've gone through any and all Ibanezes that I could afford, and I wanted a change of pace. So I got myself a Nuno, which needs work, but I really like a lot. Does anyone know of a site that has information on the series? I can't really identify my own so far. It's got the Washburn...

    I just wanted to be clear on something. Everything I've read states to NOT put any type of oil or anything on a maple fretboard. Afer cleaning one of mine, the board seems kinda dry and bare. Is there nothing to put on the board to act as a moisturizer/conditioner? Thanks.
  14. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    Alright this should be a nice contraversial topic to begin the spring/summer season. I decided to write this note after receiving my third maple-necked JEM just last Friday, an LNG. Here's my take, I've never heard sweeter tone out any of the JEM models 90% of which I've plugged in and...
  15. Pickups & wiring
    I'm putting together a custom strat and would appreciate some recommendations for the bridge pickup. The guitar is mahogany bodied with a hard rock maple neck and ebony fretboard. This is the first guitar I've had with an ebony fretboard and that seems to really brighten up the sound, so I'm...

    I was on Vai.com and noticed a considerable change to EVO... a white headstock! Now I know on the last leg of the G3 tour EVO had a black headstock. No gold hardware and 'KNOX' sticker on the neck pickup and a full vine ebony fingerboard. Is this simply an airbrush required by Ibanez or a new...

    Do you know and try Heritage Guitar? They seem as good or even better than Gibson LP for a fraction of the price.
