    Rosewood RG550 from 1993? Hello, I came upon what seems to be an Ibanez RG550 but I'm not entirely sure about its integrity. Its an all-black Ibanez RG with a rosewood fingerboard. Serial number dates it to be a 93' MIJ model and it has RG550 written next to the serial (behind the headstock)...

    Hi, I've been trying to work out if my 2004 JEM 7VWH has an ebony fretboard or a rosewood one. I've had a look on IbanezRules.com and had a look through some threads on here, but I cant seem to find a definitive answer. The serial number is: F0437860 I've had a few of my friends look at it...

    Not sure which forum to put this in, it could have gone in several, but I'll stick with this one. One read and you'll be able to tell, this could get, bad. https://www.namm.org/issues-and-advocacy/regulatory-compliance/cites-update-commercial-rosewood-and-bubinga

    I have been recently GAS'ing severely over the new RG655 but ended up easing the GAS with a slightly less expensive, equally shredtastic alternative. Pulled the trigger on a used RG550 for just around a quarter of the price of a new RG655. After careful examination though, I am no longer sure...

    Hello, I have been doing some tests lately on : - making dowels using 2 methods - best woods for dowels I don't know if those will apply to any guitar I have, but I did them just for the sake of completeness and training. It all started when I saw my tech doing this to one neck heel hole of my...

    If the Ibanez premium guitar's rosewood fretboard has binding that is made of maple wood, can lemon oil still be applied to the fretboard? I have heard that lemon oil is not applicable to maple fretboards, but what if the fretboard is not maple but bound with maple?

    Just picked it up in a trade and I don't need it. Looks great, 1 scratch on the back that's not through the paint and that's basically it. Practically no fret wear at all. Still have the original documentation. Take a look at the pics and make an offer if you're interested. I currently...

    I have a premium LP with rosewood FB that was super dry when I bought it used a few months ago. I applied some Gibson FB conditioner to the board and that helped it out for a few weeks but now the board is light in color again and doesn't feel good at all. Should I keep applying the...

    Hi There, noob-ish question. (insert embarrassed emoticon here) I am long overdue to oil the fretboards for my two rosewood guitars, my SZ320 and my RGT42FX, both which also happen to be fixed bridge. I've got some Dunlop 65 lemon oil that I was going to try, and I'm due to change the strings...

    My Ibanez SAS32EX has been in regular use by me for around a couple of months or so now, and its fretboard is FILTHY. I've been giving it small cleans every now and then, but I'm not sure why it's so disgusting. Almost every fret is completely covered in what I can only assume is skin. Is there...

    I have an RG550 neck that I am selling for $60 w/ shipping to anywhere in the 48 US states. It is the older square heel neck from an RG550. It is a rosewood board. There are only two things I can see wrong with it. First, the head has been sanded down, and a new decal has been applied...
